RCMP in Creighton, Sask., are asking the public to report “any sightings or interactions” on Oct. 5 with a woman who was found dead on a golf course the next day.

Tristin Robb was “in medical distress” when emergency responders were called to the Phantom Lake Golf Club, RCMP said in a release.

She died at the scene, the release added.

“An autopsy has been ordered and completed by the Saskatchewan Coroners Service to investigate the cause of her death,” the RCMP release said.

“The investigation is still ongoing as police await the results of the toxicology and examine evidence gathered from the scene to determine the circumstances of her death.”


Mother seeks answers after daughter found dead on Saskatchewan golf course

Jobb’s mother, Val Charlette, said Monday that the coroner found no signs of trauma on her daughter’s body. That has given her some solace, she said.

“Something happened where she got something into her system, and she got too much,” Charlette said in an interview.

“She had a substance use disorder, so she was using substances, drinking, as well – drinking was pretty bad for her – so it put her in a lot of vulnerable situations.”

Jobb had been going back and forth between her mother’s home in The Pas, Man., and her sister’s in Flin Flon, Man., which are just over the border from Creighton.

Plans were in the works for her to go live with her father at Sturgeon Landing, part of the Peter Ballantyne Cree Nation in northeastern Saskatchewan, her mother added.

Looking back

Charlette said she should have done things differently with her daughter.

“I could’ve gotten someone to watch over her in my home while I was away for work.  So then, she would always have somewhere to be, somewhere safe, so at least when she needs to come recuperate from drinking or using drugs, she has a home to come home to rest and try and stay sober.”

Charlette, who works as a mental health therapist and once worked for the Addictions Foundation of Manitoba, is a member of the Mathias Colomb Cree Nation in northern Manitoba.

She said she tried to instil traditional teachings in her children. Even so, she couldn’t save her daughter from her demons.

“When it comes to addictions, it’s so unpredictable,” she said. “You don’t know what is going to happen.

“I’ve always had that open-door policy because, it’s not them, it’s the drug that has the power over them.”
