  © THE CANADIAN PRESS/Graeme Roy   The grandfather of a 16-month-old girl whose death has been ruled a homicide says the toddler suffered a horrific assault.

Veronica Poitras was rushed from her mother’s Cold Lake apartment to a hospital across the street before RCMP were alerted just after 7 p.m., Aug. 26.

Soon after, she was taken to a hospital in Edmonton for treatment. She was taken off of life support and pronounced dead Tuesday, Aug. 29.

On Sept. 8, RCMP ruled the case a homicide.

“Everyone’s so traumatized in our family to see her laying there motionless, brain dead,” said Jason Houle, father of Jaylene Houle, the baby’s mother.

  'Nothing of the story of that night adds up,' says sister of man found dead after Ndilo party Gerald Zoe's body was found floating in water along the shoreline of Ndilo, N.W.T., last summer. Police say no foul play is suspected, but his family believes there’s more to the story. Zoe's body was found floating in the water along the eastern shoreline of Ndilo, a small First Nations community attached to Yellowknife, little more than a year ago on Aug. 28. He was 23 years old.

“It was like someone took a ball-peen hammer, a little ball-peen hammer and beat her with it.”

He said his daughter had gone for groceries and KFC, leaving the toddler in the care of a man she trusted. The baby’s biological father shared custody of Veronica and was not in the apartment when she suffered her injuries, said Houle.

He said that when he saw little Veronica in hospital, she was covered in bruises, including some on her cheek and forehead. He was by her bedside in Cold Lake and after she was taken to Edmonton’s Stollery Children’s Hospital.

The family is reeling from the death, he said, but trying to remember the little girl as a happy toddler who was just beginning to walk and talk.

RCMP have not provided an update on the case since Sept. 8. No charges have been laid. Police were asking anyone with any information to contact Crime Stoppers or Cold Lake RCMP.
