On September 29, 1984, 18-year-old Shawn Reineke was dropped down the garbage chute of a student residence at the University of Saskatchewan. Shawn suffered horrific injuries. He died the next day. This work provides a biography of Shawn and historical context to his death. This work reconstructs the night of September 28/29, 1984, and the Saskatoon Police Service investigation into Shawn’s death. This work concludes with an analysis of why nobody has ever been charged, as well as an account of what may have happened between 3:30 and 3:45 a.m., September 29, 1984. This work is based on: an extensive review of sworn testimony at the Saskatchewan Coroner’s Inquest into the Death of Shawn Reineke, February 4-6; a review of contemporaneous newspaper reports, television broadcasts, and archival photographs; contemporary interviews with Shawn’s family, friends, and acquaintances; and contemporary interviews with students and police officers who were present in 1984.
