Niagara EMS worker killed
While her identity has still not been revealed by the Niagara Police, it has been confirmed that the Lincoln woman who was killed on Oct. 11 was a 24-year Niagara EMS worker.

The woman, a victim of intimate partner violence, was found dead after police searched the rural area near a home on Victoria Avenue, between Greenlane and John Street, in Lincoln on Wednesday, Niagara Regional Police said in a press release.

Tributes for the victim poured in, including one from the Niagara Paramedics & Dispatchers Union on X, formerly known as Twitter, that said, “It is with profound sadness we mourn the loss of one of our own. She was an extraordinary paramedic who cared for her community for the last 24 years. You will be missed. We’ll take it from here.”

The victim’s former spouse, a 56-year-old man from Vineland, has been charged with first-degree murder.

Earlier this month, the Niagara Regional Council voted for action against domestic violence, as well as to help paramedics who face increased violence while on the job.
