Hi hope your day was/is going well! Are there any youtubers you like?
Hii, my day went alright. thank you❣️
To be honest I don’t really watch youtube my history is mostly clips of the nanny. If I had anyone in mind that I’m really into it would be @/ cherry bepsie and @/ yhara zayd. I feel like they both create super interesting and well thought-out video essays. @/ Broey deschanel is also a good account! Really makes me excited ab media and they always have such a unique take.
Those are the only “youtubers” I can think of though. I do follow skincare/ book review accounts as well but lol.
Azraya Ackabee-Kokopenace, a member of the Grassy Narrows First Nation in Ontario, was only 14 years old when she went missing on April 15th, 2016. Although her family and community knew her as a bright, innocent, sweet girl, she was subjected to copious amounts of bullying and subsequently dropped out of school. At 17 years old, her brother Calvin passed away due to the side effects of mercury poisoning, the result of industrial pollution Grassy Narrows First Nation experienced in the 1960s and 1970s. His death impacted Azraya deeply, and she began to experience suicidal ideation. From then on, she was in and out of treatment facilities and the care of children’s aid. Her suicidal tendencies were well-documented in the healthcare system of the community. On April 15th, she attended a house party and as a result missed her 9 p.m. curfew. The group home she was staying with then notified the police. Once located, the police dropped her off at Lake of the Woods District Hospital, apparently intoxicated. She left of her own accord around 11:30 p.m. where she was reportedly witnessed walking into the woods. Her family was not notified of her disappearance until the middle of the next day.
Two days after her disappearance, Darryl Contois of the Bear Clan Patrol, one of the many patrols tasked with searching for the girl, found her body hanging from a tree, deceased. Azraya’s father was told she died by suicide and that authorities did not suspect foul play in her death.
The family, however, is not satisfied with the way the investigation into their daughter’s death was handled. Her family stated she was in the care of Anishinaabe Abinoojii Child and Family Services at the time of her death, however, CFS refuse to confirm whether or not she was truly a client. The Ontario Provincial Police also refuse to state why they had contact with her the night she went missing. They specifically will not state that she was in their custody, as any death that occurs in police custody requires an inquest.
Both Azraya and her family have had their fair share of suspicious instances with the police. Shortly before her disappearance, Azraya had the police called on her due to her level of intoxication. Her family has a video of the police restraining her on the ground as she cries that she wants to go home. In 1992, after reports of intoxication, her uncles, Elvis and Morris Keewatin, drowned while trying to swim to shore after officers took their boat, leaving them stranded on an island. In 1999, her aunt was picked up by police due to public intoxication, then stabbed in her cell. The police reportedly did not notice and she died as a result. In October 2016, Azraya’s cousin was stabbed in the head hours after being released from police custody, leading to a coma.
Azarya’s father has many questions, including how a 14-year-old girl could walk away from the hospital without anyone stopping her, and why the hospital hadn’t done more to remove any objects she could have used to commit suicide as there was a well-documented history of her suicidal tendencies.
Azarya’s case highlights the systemic failures and negligence of the OPP and the child welfare services in Ontario. Azraya’s death has inspired a group of Indigenous women in the area to form their own Bear Clan Patrol that provides conflict resolution, rides, and search-and-rescue services.
David Gonzalez was 9 years old when he went camping with his parents in San Bernadino National Forest in July of 2004. He asked his mother if he could get cookies from the car which was about 50 yards away from the campsite. His mother says she turned around for a second, looked back, and David was gone.
He was never seen alive again.
His mother doesn’t recall seeing or hearing anything that would indicate a struggle, however, she noted that there was a beige truck that sped out of the campground around the time her son went missing. Authorities said there were no signs of a kidnapping and did not follow up on that lead. Along with no evidence of a kidnapping, at this time in the investigation the police stated there were also no signs of an animal attack.
About a year later, his decomposed body was found only a mile away from where he had gone missing. This was strange, as that area had been thoroughly searched when he first went missing, prompting the public and his family to ask if his body had been placed there.
Once his body was found, the police backtracked and almost immediately stated they believed he was attacked by a mountain lion. They claimed that the marks on his bones were consistent with that of animal activity. Authorities also stated that his body could have been there during the initial search, but that mountain lions cover their dead prey in leaves and branches.
Although the police have stated that David’s death was simply a tragic accident, there are many on the internet who do not believe the police took the case as seriously as they should have. There are many unanswered questions such as: how could a mountain lion take a small boy without any blood, signs of a struggle, or screams from David? Why did the police not follow up on the beige truck David’s mother saw speeding out of the park? Even if mountain lions cover their prey, the area where David’s body was found was searched extensively. Could a mountain lion cover their prey so thoroughly that teams of search crews missed it? Although marks on his bones indicate animal activity, couldn’t those marks have occurred post-mortem, after his body had been dumped?
Although this case has been ruled an accident, it is still considered one of the strangest disappearances in recent history.
