The Manitoba Government says they have received the Phoenix Sinclair report stemming from an inquiry into the child’s death.

Phoenix Victoria Hope Sinclair was murdered by her mother and stepfather in June 2005 at five years old. In and out of foster care all her life, Phoenix was eventually given back to her parents where she was starved and beaten to death. Despite regular check-ups on the child by Child and Family Services, she wasn’t missed for months and her body wasn’t found until March of the following year.

The Phoenix Sinclair Inquiry sat for 91 days. During that time, 126 witnesses testified in front of commissioner Ted Hughes about the circumstances surrounding her death.

The report and its findings will be made public early next year, said the Manitoba Government.
