Selina Stefanski and her younger brother are grieving the loss of their mother, Tatjana Stefanski, who was tragically killed last month in Lumby. Tatjana was described as a kind woman who always put her family and others before herself. She was last seen with her ex-husband on April 13, and her body was found the next day on the outskirts of town. Despite an arrest being made in the area, no charges have been laid and no suspect has been named, leaving the family living in fear and hiding. Selina Stefanski expressed her desire to see the perpetrator behind bars so they can move on with their lives without constant worry and fear.

Tatjana Stefanski’s partner, Jason Gaudreault, also spoke about the ongoing fear and anxiety the family is facing, always looking over their shoulders and eagerly awaiting closure. They have been waiting for more than five weeks for updates on the investigation, but Cpl. James Grandy of the RCMP’s Southeast District mentioned that there were no further updates to provide at the moment. The family doesn’t harbor any ill will towards the police but expressed a desire for changes to catch-and-release laws in honor of Tatjana. Despite the lack of progress in the case, the family is grateful for the support they have received from the Lumby community, and Selina Stefanski expressed her intention to fight for change not only for their own situation but for other victims as well.

The family is taking things one day at a time while remembering Tatjana for her big and kind heart, with Selina Stefanski describing her as the best mother she could have asked for. The community of Lumby has shown an outpouring of support for the grieving family, helping them in various ways through this difficult time. The family is still struggling to come to terms with the loss and the lack of resolution in the case, with Gaudreault expressing frustration at the lack of progress and closure. The uncertainty and fear caused by the situation have taken a toll on their daily lives, with Selina Stefanski feeling nervous and anxious in public spaces and hoping for the day when the perpetrator is finally brought to justice.

The family’s grief and frustration are further compounded by the lack of updates and progress in the investigation, leaving them in a state of limbo as they wait for closure. They continue to hold out hope for justice and change in the legal system to prevent similar tragedies from occurring in the future. Despite the challenges they are facing, the family remains grateful for the support they have received from the community, which has helped them navigate this difficult time. Selina Stefanski’s determination to fight for change in honor of her mother reflects the resilience and strength that they are drawing upon as they cope with their loss and the uncertainty surrounding Tatjana’s death.
