Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 28, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 28-THE LETHBRIDaE HERALD Friday, June 28, 1974 Aklavik 64 Canadians named to Order of Canada shooting puzzles jurors AKLAVIK, N.W.T. (CP) A six-man inquest jury Thursday failed to find a reason for the actions which led to the shooting death of a 16-year-old Indian youth here early May 26. The inquest was told Charlie Koe was killed by a gunshot wound to the neck, and was told he was shot by an RCMP rifleman after Koe opened fire with a high powered rifle on RCMP officers. The shooting followed the deaths of a Roman Catholic priest and a 16-year-old Eskimo youth and the wounding of Aklavik's only RCMP member in what have since come to be known as "the Aklavik shootings." Despite seven hours of testimony by 11 witnesses who described a night of heavy drinking and bloodshed, the two Metis, one Indian and three white jury did not decide on the reason for Koe's sniper attack on a seven-man RCMP force. AVENGE DEATH Only one of the witnesses speculated on the cuase. He said Koe may have been trying to avenge the death of Lawrence Thrasher, an Eskimo youth killed a few hours earlier after wounding an RCMP constable in the arm. The officer was chasing Thrasher following the shooting of Father Jean Franche. 65. who was shot in the stomach while standing in the doorway of his mission. Both Thrasher and Fr. Franche died in Inuvik General Hospital six hours after the shooting.

Rindal said at a news conference agreement had been reached among all participating countries including the Soviet Union, Japan and Norway, the only three out of the 15-member commission still engaged in whaling. "The Japanese have seen the he said.
