Ontario Unsolved Murders & Missing People / Re: Human Remains Listings

Wow :o That is a mystery! Bones that old in a shed from the 60's??  Strange! And wasn't the skull in the rafters and the leg bones under the floor boards?  Couldn't they track down who lived there in the 60s or their family?  A historian would be able to find something further probably. We have a local one in my area and he has old maps (not hundreds of years or anything) but maybe that's how they found out about the Dr.s office location. But in the 1960s they wouldn't just bury bones beside the office!  Hmm......

Hi; just following this after I saw the name on the O.P.P. missing persons site. I noticed that no one has posted on it for a long time and the last post said that the cops might have found something of interest when they did that ground search. Then there's nothing posted after that! I guess if her name is still on the missing persons site it wasn't her but it looked like a few people were going to be following up on a few things and then nobody posted any more. Just wondering...  ???

I am also following this on facebook. I am reposting to my wall every few days or so. I noticed that the word is getting spread out all over and I hope that you find him soon.

Hi, I have been following on facebook as well and every few days I repost to my wall. I am from nearby the area so I hope others will repost off of my wall as well. I agree with others;  those people where he was last seen must know something; even if it's his mood when he was there, or what he said to them ect..  They were the last to see him so they need to be saying more. (in my opinion anyway!) Good luck with your search; I hope you find him soon.

Oh; that's sad :(    Did they ever find out what happened?  Don't think it would be suicide given that location?

Did you manage to find a little about the other two women who's murders were attributed to Archer?  There is at least a little more information about him sprinkled throughout this forum.  There are two women in London, and another in Chatham that constitute the list that are attributed to him...but as he was leaving the courtroom after his sentencing his comments suggested that he may have killed others (the three were "just the first strike"...suggesting he had been in the batter's box for a while).   I believe that goNgo has some addiitonal articles on Archer.  In Archer's case, his role in the murders came to the surface when an ex-wife went to the police.  Hopefully, for the myriad of other cases on this unsolved site, something similar will happen - a relative etc. who may have been keeping quiet for decades, will finally come forward with crucial information.

Hi, Oh thanks! I was wondering if there was any more info on him.  I also read that they thought he might have been responsible for another murder in Merlin in Jan. /71 of a woman named Isobel Russell who was 57.  Those are the only two ever there that I know of and they were two years in a row.  I bet there are more too!  I will check out goNgo for more info ; thanks :)
@HaveFaith;  thanks :)

I sent the request into americas Most Wanted before I read that it was cancelled and they actually sent me a response. It said to contact the I.D. (Investigation Discovery) channel and they have several different programs that might investigate it if we sent them the information.

The article doesn't really say a whole lot.  Was the man living in the house by himself at the time?  and if it is unrelated to a grow op found was it somebody came and killed him then set the house on fire to try and get rid of the evidence?  ???

I didn't know that;  Thanks for posting.  I am going to try and look for more information if there is any.  I do not want to pay for the full text!  They mention his name; Gerald Archer but nothing else about him except that he had died now.  Wonder why they never said anything when he first confessed?  Always more questions........

I am so glad that I came across this forum and these posts.  I was doing a Google search and then found out some intersting things that I had not known before and that led me to here!  I am 46 years old and NEVER even knew until today that there were two murders in my little home town of Merlin in 1970 and 1971.  I would have been 6 or7 at the time so I guess nothing was told to us.  We lived outside of Merlin in the countryside but I do remember a time when we started to lock our doors.  Previously we never ever locked them.  I am thinking now that was probably around the same time as the murders occured.   All I can find on it is one little article that says Gerald Archer was responsible for one (Edith Authier, Labor Day, 1970). You have to pay to read the whole text , I believe it is from the Starr.  So nothing else about him except that he is now deceased.  Thats it.  I shake my head at how much information has been held back from us such as no serial killers here and them only charging them with "one" murder because of the "cost!" .. That is not right at all. It seems like they might be starting to get it together some with that database the RCMP are working on.  What a lack of communication ect... there was.  If a cop retires who is working on a cold case it seems that it never got transferred to anyone else??   I too was NOT impressed by the last line of the first article.  "Well , the killer is not in our city anymore"!  ???  Well..... good for that city!... what about the rest?  I don't think a name was in the article of who said that!
@ wanted Thanks for all the information.   
@Have faith; Sorry to hear about all the murders in London and how young you were when they all happened.  It sure did end your innocence at an age when you are supposed to feel safe, secure and protected in your home with no worries. 
@Jenson; sorry to hear about your brother; that must have been so awful.  I can't imagine.  My brother is 8 years younger than me. 
RKay; that is a Great story!!  So good to hear something like that, gives a feeling of hope.  :)

I saw this tonight on Resuce Medium (summer repeats I guess).  I thought that with all that information they shared that they would have found her right by that blue plastic in the woods that they went to.  That was a lot of information they had.  Surely someone must have followed up after the show first aired?? They even gave a description/sketch of what the guy would look like. After reading all these posts it doesn't seem like they followed up although on the Rescue Mediums website it says that the RCMP were aware of all the information.  Still it doesn't seem like they have gone to that site.  I would like to know as I am sure you all do to.  What does someone have to do to get the right people involved??  I like in Ontario or I would go and put posters up to. Does anyone know that couple from the house on the show?  Sad,  If that were me I would want people pushing for my body to be found!
