The RCMP North district Major Crime Unit has arrested one man for his role in the 2013 death of a 21-year-old woman.

Garrett Steven George, 26, has been arrested and charged with second degree murder in the death of Destiny Rae Tom.

On Saturday March 23, 2013, at 5:25 a.m. the Fraser Lake RCMP responded to a 911 call in the Fort Fraser area where they found Destiny Rae Tom deceased outside of a residence.

Destiny was a resident of the Nadleh First Nations reserve and the daughter of Andy and Vivian Tom.

During a press conference on April 17, 2013, after her untimely death, Destiny’s mom shared, Destiny was a beautiful, caring, and loving person. She was a loving mother to our three-year-old granddaughter, Cassidy. Destiny loved life, loved people & had many family & friends that loved her. Her life was tragically taken far too soon.

This arrest comes as a result of a thorough investigation by North District Major Crime investigators who were determined to find out what happened to Destiny, said Supt. Brendan Fitzpatrick the Operations officer for the BC RCMP’s Major Crime Unit.

It was important for us to gather the necessary evidence to ensure the charges moved before the courts.

These two individuals were known to each other and the public is not at risk.
