Deputy Commissioner Curtis Zablocki will issue a public apology on behalf of the RCMP at “K” Division headquarters in Edmonton.

Missing Person

Amber Tuccaro of Fort Chipewyan, along with her infant son and a family friend, went to Edmonton on August 17, 2010.

A day later, witnesses testified seeing Amber getting into the car of an unknown man outside her Nisku-area hotel room.

Those were her last known whereabouts.

Police discovered her remains in Leduc two years later.

In the investigation, police released a cell phone recording between Amber Tuccaro and the unknown man.

During the conversation, the pair discussed her plans to go to Edmonton.

However, at the national inquiry into Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women in 2017, family members testified police mishandled her missing persons’ file.

Amber Tuccaro’s brother, Paul, spoke of how police disposed of Amber’s personal belongings.

Her killer remains at large.

After the apology, police will also unveil a new poster urging anyone with information to contact Crime Stoppers.
