How did Phoenix Sinclair become ‘invisible’ to child welfare? Probe opens into Manitoba five-year-old’s murder

Phoenix Sinclair spent most of her life in foster care before being returned to her mother in 2004.

She died at the age of five, after a series of assaults, and her death went unnoticed for several months.

The girl’s mother and her mother’s boyfriend were later convicted of first-degree murder.
