Thunder Bay First Nations resident Melissa Kentner says she has no doubt it was a hate crime that left her sister Barbara suffering from what may turn out to be fatal injuries.
She said she and her sister were walking together in a residential neighbourhood of Thunder Bay early in the morning on Jan. 29 when a car drove towards them and a blond passenger wearing a plaid shirt and a baseball cap hurled something in their direction.
Barbara, 34, was hit in the abdomen with a metal trailer hitch and Melissa, 37, says she heard someone in the car say, “I (expletive) got one of them.”
