Cops are keeping it zipped about the suspicious death of a Tim Hortons cashier who was found dead in St. Catharines over the weekend.
Officers were called to a home in the Church-Queenston Sts. area around 3 a.m. Saturday, according to Niagara Regional Police.
Inside they found the body of Tineisha Chatwin, 22, who pronounced dead at the scene.
The Niagara homicide unit has taken over the probe, but cops have not revealed how Chatwin died, if a weapon was used, a suspect, or a motive.
Chatwin moved to the Niagara Region two years ago from her home in Saint John, N. B., where she attended Simonds High School. She worked as a cashier at Tim Hortons.
Now, her family has started a GoFundMe to bring her body home to New Brunswick and help cover some of the funeral costs.
“Some of you know we have experienced a tragic death in our family. Our hearts are forever broken. Tragedy early in life is always unexpected and very hard to comprehend,” her aunt wrote on the page.
“Tineisha was my niece, so I wanted to set up this Go Fund Me to help relieve some of the costs for my sister and Tineisha’s dad, Alex. The money would be spent to help Alex and her three sisters fly her home to (New Brunswic) from (Ontario). Once she is home, there will be final arrangements to take care of. Any contributions towards these costs will be fully appreciated. Thank you!”
On her Facebook page, photos of Tineisha “Tin” Chatwin seems to be permanently smiling and her personal motto is listed as: “Always Forward Never Back.”
The death stunned her group of young friends.
One wrote: “You’re on my mind heavy sweet angel. This is all so unfair I don’t even know if I know how to process all this . You were such a ray of sunshine, lit up any room you walked in. I will forever cherish the times we had. I’m glad to have known you Tin. I love you forever rest easy babyxo.”
Police remain on the scene.
