Yesterday morning I dropped a bouquet of flowers off at the Gibson’s house. There was a mound of stuffed animals, balloons, etc in a pile around a pole which is situated on the edge of their property. I saw a bus stop so the city bus travels down their street. There is a high white fence around a small backyard. When I arrived, a news reporter was taking pictures of the gifts and there was no activity at the house. Some of the people I saw walking, running, and riding their bikes said hello.
If you copy and paste “ Portage Avenue at Westwood Drive to Coleridge Park Drive ” on Google maps you’ll see how far the Gibson’s House is from the Tim Horton’s Restaurant on Portage Avenue. One way is approximately 3 kms. The Assiniboine River is light blue in color. Lisa was reportedly seen near the Tim Horton’s Restaurant (A) early Wednesday morning. Police haven’t confirmed where Lisa entered the river but walking from the house to Tim Horton’s and back would take awhile.
The Gibson’s home is located on the corner of the street and the front of their house faces south towards the Assiniboine River. Directly across from the Gibson’s house is a tiny park which was named after a founding community member. A narrow path leads to the river which was flowing rapidly to the east. Lisa’s body was found at the Forks where the Assiniboine and Red Rivers meet. Copy and paste “ Coleridge Park Drive to the Forks by water “ to see the route and the distance from the Forks to Coleridge Park Drive.
The funeral for Lisa and her children is this afternoon in Stonewall and a vigil will be held this evening at The Forks.
