Murder case goes cold after two years

Daily visits to the downtown park where her friend lost his life don’t bring Cheyanne Workman nearer to closure.

Exactly two years after 20-year-old Edward Bone was stabbed to death, police are no closer to catching his killer, and the case has gone cold.

“Sometimes those memories start to fade,” Workman said Thursday. “I don’t want that to happen — everyone deserves justice.”

Bone was found dead outside the Coast Edmonton Plaza Hotel after leaving Beaver Hill House Park on July 31, 2007. No weapon was ever found.

Questions still surround the young man’s murder. A group seeking answers who hope to revive attention to the unsolved crime will congregate this weekend, marking the two-year anniversary of Bone’s death.

“I want people to receive closure on this. I want closure,” Workman said. “The person that took Eddie’s life is out there. Someone knows something.”

Workman is inviting those who have been touched by unsolved murders to the park on 105 Street and Jasper Avenue around 4:30 p.m. Sunday for a memorial picnic.

Anyone with information on Bone’s death is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
