A 22-year-old woman is charged with manslaughter after a fight early Saturday morning at the Crazy Cactus bar in Saskatoon.
Paige Theriault-Fisher appeared in provincial court Monday. It’s alleged that she killed 23-year-old Hodan Hashi.
Theriault-Fisher was initially charged with second-degree murder, but that was downgraded hours later to the lesser charge.
She was remanded to custody and is scheduled to return to court Thursday.
The fatal altercation happened just before 3:00 a.m. CST on Nov. 5 at the bar on the 200 block of Third Avenue South.
At least three videos showing various angles of the altercation circulated on social media. The videos were provided to CBC.
They show two women standing and grappling while bystanders watch. One woman has the other in a headlock and then they go to the floor together. A person over a PA system can be heard saying, “We have a b—h fight on the dance floor.”
The two women wrestle for a moment and one of them repeatedly strikes the other in the area of her face and neck. It’s not clear whether she’s holding an object while striking.
Then, a massive pool of blood appears beneath the woman on the bottom.
The two are separated and both stand. The injured woman wipes blood from her neck, walks a few paces and then collapses.
A spokesperson for Saskatoon Police says investigators are aware of the videos.
“Our homicide investigators have had a great deal of evidence to process in this case,” said Alyson Edwards.
“We appreciate the public sending us the videos, however [investigators] believe they have what they need.” Posted By Ghost
