Winnipeg school trustee who went missing in April now suspended

By | May 8, 2020

A Winnipeg School Division trustee who went missing briefly last month has been suspended.

The board of trustees approved a motion earlier this week to suspend Cindy Murdoch until June 30 for breaching the division’s code of conduct.

The suspension, effective immediately, blocks Murdoch from any duties as a trustee, including attending meetings, receiving correspondence and engaging with parents, students or the public in the role of trustee until the end of the current school year.

Murdoch, 39, is trustee for Ward 5, which covers most of the city’s West End.

She was in the news last month after being reported missing April 20. She had been reported last seen that evening in the Crescentwood neighbourhood, where she lives.

Police had issued a public statement asking people to keep an eye out for her. Late the following afternoon, police said she had been safely located.

No information has been provided about what happened to her or what she did to breach the school division’s code of conduct.
