WINNIPEG – The man accused of killing an Indigenous teenager and dumping her body in a Winnipeg river told police he didn’t do it.

Raymond Cormier (KORM’-yay) is on trial for second-degree murder in the death of Tina Fontaine.

Court was shown a videotaped police interview in which Cormier tells officers they should not be focusing on him.

Cormier, who is 55, tells police he last saw the 15-year-old girl on a street outside a house where he was staying.

He says he and Tina were arguing, she walked away, and he went back to the house.

Cormier also says there was another man — across the street and walking in the same direction, a little behind Tina.

He tells the officers they should be looking for a man who looks like Robert Plant, the lead singer of the rock group Led Zeppelin.

The trial has been told Fontaine had a happy childhood, but became a sexually exploited youth after moving to Winnipeg earlier in the summer.
