Officer denies seeing Stonechild at drunken disturbance
Last Updated Tue, 16 Mar 2004 6:48:07

SASKATOON - Saskatoon police officer Const. Larry Hartwig told a public inquiry Monday that when he arrived at the scene of a drunken disturbance on Nov. 24, 1990, he was not aware that 17-year-old Neil Stonechild was there.

"We attended the scene and he was gone on arrival," said Hartwig. "He wasn't there."

"Is there any indication that you located Neil Stonechild?" Hartwig's lawyer asked.

"No," Hartwig replied.

Hartwig told the inquiry he had no memory of the teenager until the case was re-opened by the RCMP in 2000.

RCMP suspected Hartwig and his partner Const. Bradley Senger of playing a role in Stonechild's death. His frozen body was found Nov. 29, 1990, in a remote field on the outskirts of Saskatoon. He was partially clothed and wearing one shoe.

Stonechild's family believes his death was the result of police foul play.

Hartwig said Monday he learned that police were being held suspect in the case after reading the local paper.

The inquiry is to determine whether police played a role in Stonechild's death, examine the handling of the investigation and provide recommendations for future use. The inquiry will not place any blame.
