Cindy is the sister of Debralee ChrisJohn, who died in police custody on Sept. 7, 2016 following her arrest by Doering.

In Nov. 2019 an Ontario Superior Court judge found Doering guilty of criminal negligence causing death and failing to provide the necessaries of life to Debralee Chrisjohn of Oneida of the Thames First Nation.
