Police have charged a third person in their ongoing homicide investigation into the disappearance of a 48-year-old Six Nations man.
OPP and Six Nations Police arrested 24-year-old Lori Anne Staats of Six Nations early Thursday morning and charged her with accessory after the fact to murder.
Six Nations Police Chief Glenn Lickers said Friday investigators are still receiving calls about the disappearance of Douglas Hill.
“I am urging anyone with any information, no matter how trivial, to contact Six Nations Police. As a community, we need to bring resolution to the family of Douglas Hill,” Lickers said in a news release Friday.
Hill, who was living in Brantford at the time of his disappearance, was last seen on Six Nations June 24 around 9 a.m.
Staats is expected to make a court appearance in Brantford at a later date to answer to the charge.
Police have already charged a 17year-old girl, who can’t be named under the Youth Criminal Justice Act, with second-degree murder.
As well, Holly Martin, 35, of Brantford, is charged with accessory after the fact to murder.
Police are still searching for Hill’s body. They have conducted ground searches on Six Nations.
