The Saskatoon police say they are looking for Summer-Sky Henry, 24, in connection to the death of Megan Gallagher, 30, a Métis woman from Saskatoon who vanished two years ago.

“A warrant has been requested for First Degree Murder,” said the release from police. “Henry also has unrelated outstanding criminal code warrants including; Unlawful Confinement, Aggravated Assault, Robbery, Firearm Offences, Drug Charges, and Failing to Comply with a Court Order.”

Police also say that charges against William Roderick Sutherland, 44, have been upgraded to first-degree murder. Sutherland was arrested in June and originally charged with committing an indignity to human remains.

According to investigators, everyone involved in Gallagher’s death and disappearance has been identified and they don’t foresee further charges.

Police say they’ll continue to take tips and information from the public.

Saskatoon
Megan Gallagher, a Métis woman from Saskatoon has been missing since 2020.

Gallagher vanished without a trace in September 2020.

Five of the accused are expected to make their next court appearances Thursday morning.  They face a range of charges, from murder to unlawful confinement, assault and indignity to human remains.

Investigators searching the banks of the South Saskatchewan River near the community of St. Louis, 130 km northeast of Saskatoon, found human remains on Sept. 30, on the first day of a planned four-day search.

The family is awaiting autopsy results which are expected today and DNA results could take another week, but the family believes they will get confirmation the remains are Megan’s.

Investigators have indicated there may be gang ties between the accused. The Gallagher family has firmly denied Megan had any involvement with gangs.
