Rocky Mountain House RCMP continue investigating death of mother of five

Debbie Bird, 39, was killed May 17 on Sunchild First Nation

Rocky Mountain House RCMP are still looking for tips regarding a woman who was struck and killed by a vehicle.

Police said this week that officers have followed up on all the tips from the public and a suspect vehicle has yet to be identified.

RCMP are reissuing a request for public assistance in the hopes that someone has remembered information that could help the investigation.

“Someone knows something about this incident, whether it’s because they were involved or because they heard something,” said Const. Kerry Jury, of the Rocky Mountain House RCMP.

“We’re asking you to do the right thing, contact the RCMP, and help us provide closure to the victim’s family.”

Debbie Bird, a 39-year-old mother of five, was struck and killed by a vehicle on the Sunchild First Nation at about 3 a.m. on May 17. She was walking on the main road, about 2.2 kilometres west of the school road, when the collision occurred.
