A man accused of murdering his girlfriend in St. John's went to prison for criminal negligence causing death in Nova Scotia, court records show.

David MacBurnie Folker, 39, was charged in provincial court in St. John's Tuesday with second-degree murder in the death of Ann Marie Shirran.

Shirran's decomposed remains were discovered by campers last week about 100 kilometres south of the home she shared in St. John's with Folker, who reported her missing in July. The couple had a one-year-old son, who was placed in protective custody earlier this summer, police said.

Court records in Nova Scotia show that Folker was given a two-year sentence in 1992 for criminal negligence causing the death of Victor Clark Chandler, Jr.

Folker had pleaded guilty to the charge, which was laid after a June 2, 1991, crash near Scotch Village in Hants County.

Folker, who was 20 at the time of the incident, had also been charged with impaired driving causing death in the same case, although that charge was dropped.

The National Parole Board told CBC News that, following protocol, its records on the case were destroyed 10 years after Folker was paroled.

Folker has been remanded in custody in St. John's until at least his next court appearance on Sept. 28. Shirran was the subject of an intense public search that involved police and volunteers.

Folker had been, until after his arrest on Monday, one of the administrators of a Facebook group that Shirran's friends had established during the search.

Meanwhile, Folker has had other encounters with the courts. In June, he was charged with mischief after an incident at an office of the provincial Department of Human Resources, Labour and Employment in Mount Pearl, near St. John's.

Sources told CBC News that Folker had stormed out of the office, slamming a door and smashing a hole in the wall.

That matter is expected to be called in St. John's court later this month.

Why do such senseless acts have to happen? This poor boy left motherless by his father. How can someone be so heartless? I bet he "planted" the rumours all along trying to throw police off but obviously they knew it was him and just needed the body. So sad.  :'( :'( :'(

The man that has been arrested is her boyfriend, Dave Folker.
So sad.
A child has to grow up without his mother because of this lunatic that supposedly loved her.

There is no criminal activity involved in this case. She left on her own free will for reasons we may never know. Either way, she's home safe and sound.

I know, I've just read the comment about the child being in protective custody. What does this mean? Obviously, there is a reason the boyfriend is out but what about the rest of her family. Why can't they look after him? Poor kid...he must be so confused.

It's not looking good for Ann :(

These types of searches must be making the family sick with worry. It doesn't give much hope for a positive outcome.

Samantha Goodyear has been found (or walked home, for that matter)!

I don't think there's 3, just 2. Not sure what that person was talking about.

Solved Cases / Another Missing in St. John's - Samantha Goodyear

A desperate central Newfoundland father has been scouring St. John's for his missing daughter.

Gilbert Goodyear, of Noggin Cove, near Carmanville, told CBC News Tuesday that Samantha, 20, has disappeared without a trace.

Goodyear said he hasn't heard from his daughter since they spoke on the phone Sunday.

"She said, 'Good night Dad. Loves ya. Talk to you tomorrow night,'" he said.

Samantha was in St. John's taking summer courses at Memorial University of Newfoundland.

She had her own apartment and called home every night.

When she didn't call Monday, the Goodyears asked a friend in town to check on her. They said her door was locked. The lights were off and nobody answered.

They found Samantha's apartment undisturbed and empty when they arrived in St. John's early Tuesday morning.

Her father has been combing the city, handing out photographs of Samantha and putting up posters asking for help.

"I just want my daughter back. I want her back. I want to hold her, my baby, in my arms. I know she's only 20-years-old, but she's my little girl," he said.

Goodyear said the situation is baffling and frightening.

Samantha is an honours student who is studying to be a teacher.

The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary issued a missing persons alert Tuesday.

No, I don't know the answers to any of these questions, unfortunately.
I'm not sure if anyone is keeping up with the Facebook page but this was posted by her boyfriend yesterday:
"Fingers point. Thoughts shift. Hearts break even more. If YOU are out there, reading this. Your damage has been done. Please give her up. For this boy."
Obviously, there is information that we just don't know about and there must be a lead that the police are following. Today, according to Facebook, they're trying to organize a search by friends, family, and whomever else wants to help. It's so sad. This little baby boy will probably never see his mother again :(

Thank you for sharing these articles with us.

How far away is Blackhead from her home in St. John's?

On the facebook, one can see that she is loved and has many wonderful friends, therefore, I sense that if she was "troubled" in anyway she would have confided in one of them.

I believe Blackhead is about 20-30 minutes away from Kilbride and the area is rocky coastline and the final destination on the road is Cape Spear National Park. The area is also vast forest.
I think her family probably did know of her troubles but obviously they aren't going to tell the public (and why would they), nor would the police release that info. But to be troubled or have a history of problems doesn't warrent having something bad happen to you. I'm sure there are many people out there that have problems and they don't get kidnapped, even if it were, for example, drug troubles. I'm sure the family have told the police all there is to know of her problems, if any. I would think her boyfriend would have the most knowledge and would tell them of anything unless he'd keep it to himself for legal reasons(?).

"Missing N.L. woman may be crime victim: RNC"

Read more:

Interesting comments below story and I find it interesting that the RNC are not finally saying she may be a crime victim (took a month to release that information!).

I believe she said she was going out and left around 9 or so in the evening (reporting does suck).
Taken from the Facebook group:
"She was not meeting with any one. She just said she was going out for a bit. We have no idea where she intended to go or if there was an intended destination."!/topic.php?uid=141568745869039&topic=127

I've edited this post because I feel that it may spread rumours or perhaps upset family/friends. I didn't realize there were so many people viewing this forum.

I find it odd that she left on Sunday night to go out for a little while and didn't return but it wasn't reported until Monday. What's even more shocking is that the police didn't do anything about it until Wednesday!!! That's crazy! Is it normal for them to wait 48 hours???

There are so many questions that would be nice to be answered. I'm also wondering why she wasn't reported missing until Monday but she went missing on Sunday night. I would report it that night if my spouse didn't return home from a walk.
