Correctional Service of Canada, Yellowknife
Officer Louise Pargeter was found dead in the home of an offender where she was conducting a home visit. When Officer Pargeter did not return to her office, the R.C.M.P. were notified and went to the address of the parolee that Officer Pargeter was visiting. Upon arrival they found Officer Pargeter had been murdered by the parolee. The parolee was ultimately convicted of first degree murder.
Officer Pargeter had served with the Correctional Service of Canada for three years and is survived by her partner and child.
