The Justice System / The Death Penalty

I am forty five years old. I have children and grandchildren. I am blessed with a partner/friend/wife. I fear for them.

I am beginning to feel that capital punishment is the best solution to protect our children, and spouses. That is what this is all about. Too protect them. As a man, and as a good member of society, I think it's time to get our priorities in order. The chance these broken people (sex offenders) will torture, and kill, again is too great to risk. If there is DNA evidence of guilt, then that changes everything. Society can't afford to keep these people in prison. They will get out. Put an end to them quickly. Capital punishment is a clear solution to re-offending and a stark deterrent to those who could become the latest monster on the news.

A soldier is asked to kill for his country. We call them heroes. Why shouldn't we ask them to do away with these menaces who also threaten us. While we all ponder this topic, someone's child or spouse is lost in the most horrible nightmare again and again.

It's not a perfect solution, but it is the best thing for our families safety.

Great to see more action on this thread. Thank you for your thoughts.

I don't think she was missing long. I was never informed she actually was missing. I just received a call from police asking whether I'd seen her lately. Then I was given the news she had died. I probably hadn't seen her for a week at that point. I remember feeling completely useless to the police.

New info. Ok, It is an open case.

I hate that this just seems forgotten. She was a witty, chatty person, who was very out going. I was not aware of the prostitution she was supposedly involved in. That seems a stretch from the person I knew.

I would like to talk to the law enforcement people who are responsible for this case some time. She lived in Victoria, but the crime scene was in Sooke. Does that mean Sooke RCMP would be in charge?

I've had this feeling about Gary Ridgeway since I first saw him on the news. The police should investigate this tip if they already haven't.

Any more news? If this is a cold case I'd like to know? Why was it so hard for me to even find a record that it happened?

OK I found a record of the crime occuring in Sooke. There is no mention whether it's been solved.

from Hwy of Tears
"SOOKE, Dec. 3, '82: Kristie Kathleen Fowlie, 18
Fowlie's partly clad body was found next to a logging road east of Sooke.
She had worked as a prostitute, but had become a born-again Christian. She had been sexually assaulted and strangled."

Now I may be wrong about that date. It could have been as early as 1979.

I think it must have been 1981 and summer. I know it doesn't show up anywhere on the internet. If it were solved, where would I find that info? BTW thanks for your help.

When I was 17 I had a friend who was murdered. Her name was Christine Kelly. She would have been 16-17 years old. I have long wondered what became of this case. She was a very nice person and loved to talk and joke around. She was not a sex worker. We both belonged to a church group and we would meet downtown at the Mustardseed.
I know she disappeared while walking home and was found in Sooke on a logging road. I was contracted by the police to see if I had any info. I read about the crime in the Times Colonist the next day. I have never heard another detail.

I would really like to know what happened and have some closure. Was it solved? Or is it still an open case. I called the police and enquired but they wouldn't comment, period.

I have recently thought that the Green River killer may have been responsible. He looked familiar to me when he was arrested. I hear he was active within street churches too. 

I would appreciate any news, or hearing from others curious about this case. She may have used a different name as I think her parents were divorced. This also could be part of the reason I have heard nothing.
