Ten months after the body of 11-year-old Teresa Robinson was discovered in a forested area of Garden Hill First Nation, RCMP have confirmed they have made an arrest.

Manitoba RCMP made the announcement in a news release Thursday afternoon. Little information was released other than that the person arrested was a male.

“While we understand that this arrest will generate a lot of questions, we are not in a position to provide further information at this time as there are a number of investigative steps currently being undertaken,” Sgt. Bert Paquet said through the release.
