    When was the accident that caused Vicky's paraplegia (a couple of years ago?); who was at fault; and was there a lawsuit or settlement in the works?

    Takes a special kind of animal to have done this to a disabled person

    My first thought was they must've gotten the wrong house! How can anyone do this?

    Who delivered the package? Any eye witnesses see a suspicious car?

    what the ??????!!!!!!!!

    who delivered the package? this kind of crime takes a special kind of hate - seems personal & revengeful

    this is unreal, reminds me of the father with his sons in his car & someone planted a carbomb (in the States somewhere)

    If you can find a link or think of a name, it would be interesting to see if we can glean any insight into a mind that would carry out this type of crime.

    From the Town of Innisfail website:

    The name ‘Innisfail’ goes back to celtic origin. It means “Isle of Destiny”


    Thankfully little Destiny was not at home to see this happen to her mother. I hope she has a million arms to hug her and see her through this tragedy.

    Just some random thoughts ...

    I'm not quite sure how one escapes an explosion, but am wondering if possibly the intended target was the caretaker? Do we know how long this person had been caring for Vicky, and did they only work with her on certain days?

    So sad
    Why would anyone want to kill this woman? From what I understand, she was a caring person and had no enemies.
    I'm wondering if this was just a random act and she just happened to be the unfortunate victim

    Police would not confirm rumours circulating on the Facebook pages of family members that Shachtay was the target of the bomb.

    “We have some knowledge of the packaging, the delivery. We have a witness, the caregiver was there.” said Webb. “But we’re not going to put out certain details unless it serves the investigation.”

    I hope that Destiny has others to give her loving care. Is Destiny's father or his family involved in her life?

    Who was paying for Vicky's care?

    Rest in Peace, Vicky. You faced so many challenges in your short life.

    That's why I was asking about the accident Snoopster. Won't go into too much detail but I know from experience that if a person dies as a result of an accident, lawsuits are a paltry sum (because "judges know that they can never place a dollar value on the loss of life of a loved one") ... paraphrased here "if however, the person does not die and requires care for their lifetime, then the lawsuits are huge." (quoting legal advice from one of Canada's top medmal lawyers).

    IF there was a suit as a result of an accident "a couple of years ago", highly unlikely it would be settled or have gone to court yet, so targetting Vicky could be a way out if the defendant(s) are nervous about the outcome. Always wise to follow the $$ in any investigation.

    ‘Whole town is struggling’ after blast kills Alberta woman

    snipped...

    Webb said investigators believe Shachtay found the package early Friday, picked it up and brought it inside, where it sat while she went out. When she returned home about an hour later, she tried to open the package and it detonated.

    ...In 2004, while pregnant with her daughter Destiny, Shachtay was in a car accident and became a paraplegic. Her own mother died recently after a battle with cancer.

    I wonder if this was just a plain package with no personal information on it, or was it specifically addressed to Vicky? If the caregiver was there while Vicki had gone out, maybe they are able to provide input as to what the packaging looked like and whether it contained any information to aid investigators.
