Police believe they have found remains of Native girl

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police believe they have found the remains of Phoenix Sinclair, a five-year-old Native girl who was allegedly buried on the Fisher River First Nation in Manitoba.

Sinclair was in the foster care system when she somehow went unaccounted for nine months. She ended up on the reserve with her biological mother and another man, both of whom are charged with her murder.

Sinclair's former foster mother said she was outraged about the lack of accountability in the child welfare system. A prayer circle was held yesterday in light of the discovery of the remains.
