Jessica Cameron 's domestic partner, Jamie Smallchild, has been charged in her death following a swift investigation by the RCMP. He is a suspect in a homicide in Eastland County, Texas, which is about 170 kilometres southwest of the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

"We're a community," Thomas said. "We're all a family. I'm related to Jamie too. So this is hard."

She said Cameron's family wanted Smallchild to see them there.

"I wanted Jamie to see we're here for her. We're her voice now," Thomas said.

What police have said so far

Police have given a brief account of the investigation leading up to Smallchild's arrest.

Early Saturday morning, Rosthern RCMP members found a green minivan in the woods near Beardy's First Nation, located about 90 kilometres northeast of Saskatoon. The minivan had minor front-end damage on it.

Smallchild and Cameron were in the driver and passenger seats, respectively. Cameron was pronounced dead at the scene, while Smallchild had only minor injuries.

"Police officers observed inconsistencies between the injuries sustained by the occupants of the vehicle and the damage on the minivan," according to the RCMP press release.

Officers charged Smallchild with murder on Sunday.

Smallchild will next appear in court on July 23.

A forensic pathologist is expected to conduct an autopsy on Cameron later this week.
