RCMP dossier: "Complexion: Other"

From LMY Wiki


Details Matter!
While individual issues may seem trivial on their own, together, they are demonstrative of the overall carelessness and apathy with which the investigation was handled.

RCMP investigators recently updated the official dossier for Lisa's case to describe her complexion as "other". Why waste time on an unhelpful detail like this, rather than correcting some of the many mistakes on the dossier?

Official RCMP Dossier: Lisa Marie Young[2]
Dossier "Complexion"
up to 2019 "Dark"[3]
2019 to 2023 "Other"[4][1]

These are both wrong.

  • Lisa was ½ Indigenous and ½ Caucasian.[5] She's been referred to as "fair-skinned".
  • Nobody has a complexion of "Other". This change was made by request of a family member who was unsatisfied with the term "Dark", but why would investigators not remove the "Complexion" field altogether, or find an option better than "Other"?
