This so reminds me of a case in Grande Prairie but that was quite a number of years ago. That case was attributed to possibly Clifford Olson.

Great idea,GSAR_Mbr and it looks good. Perhaps that will also give people the incentive to find out what was happening in those areas when the persons went missing ... what was going on besides every day normal living. Like constructions crews going through, persons out of jail etc.

I hope someone here can help you. I'm not here that much because I tend to aggravate people with my bluntness. So presently I am working on stolen and missing dogs, cattle etc.

Bay Sailor, just for clarification, it was former Chief John Bates (who likely would have had little, if any, involvement in the Oland investigation who accompanied McCloskey to Court) not former Chief Bill Reid.  It was also Bates who was chief at the time of the first trial and filed the complaint with the Police Commission following King's testimony.  Regarding McCloskey's testimony, I find the testimony of King and Oram far more credible.  I always believed King (and much of what he said has since been confirmed by the investigators) and can really think of no reason why Oram would have concocted the story of McCloskey sitting on the desk, etc etc at the crime scene.

Thanks you very much for that correction RubyRose. I am with you on King and Oram, and feel so sorry for King- the position he was put in must have been awfully difficult to deal with, and I was sad seeing him break down on the stand. Clearly this has been eating him up by times. McCloskey gives the impression of being a real self-serving b*****d, loss of son not withstanding.

A few more tidbits from the trial this week... the aforementioned Chief Reid as it turns out is also good buddies with now retired Insp. McCluskey, who testified today and actually showed up to court with the now retired Chief Reid by his side. McCluskey tried to refute another other police officer's testimony that McCluskey had asked him to lie about his presence at the crime scene, and also denied that he had made a 'Scenic tour', so to speak, of the crime scene on his second visit. He also denied that he sat on any of the furniture in the office, something a different officer had previously testified had happened.

Another police officer who testified today claimed that he had seen Constable Davidson at the crime scene check the back entrance door, questioned Davidson about the door, and was told by him that it was indeed locked. He had not mentioned this interaction with Davidson when he testified in the first trial, but claimed that he had remembered this after that trial as his memory had been jigged by the post-trial uproar over police handling of the crime scene. However after he said this today, the defense lawyer told him that all of the evidence they had gathered from other police reports, and to which the prosecution agreed, stated the testifying officer was NEVER at the crime scene at the same time as this Davidson. In other words, he was caught in a blatant lie. This is the state of Saint John's finest at the moment.

I would not be surprised if the defence requests the Judge dismiss the case because of the rampant incompetency of the police investigation and obvious perjury committed by at least one of the police officers noted above.

Court testimony has been revealed which the defense allege are further examples of police "tunnel vision".  I certainly have to agree.


- Saint John Liberal MLA Gerry Lowe told police he was across the street at Thandi restaurant on either July 6, 2011, or July 5, 2011, some time after 7:30 p.m., when he saw someone exit 52 Canterbury St. Retired constable Keith Copeland testified Wednesday he interviewed Lowe on July 8 but didn't attempt to clarify whether he saw someone exiting the building on July 5 or July 6. The defense then presented the court with time-stamped security video showing Lowe entering Thandi's on July 6, 2011, at 7:40 p.m. and exiting at 8:35 p.m. Based on this timeline, Dennis was not the last person to leave RO's office the night he was killed, yet LE ignored this credible witness statement.

- Lawyer Alan Gold told the Saint John courtroom the defence intends to present evidence the Oland family offered a reward two months after Richard Oland was killed for information leading to the arrest of his killer. But the response of then-chief Bill Reid was: "It would not be proper for us to issue this reward because … we know Dennis did it," Gold alleged.

- Gold said although investigators believed the killer would have had a significant amount of blood on him or her, they were able to "ignore the absence of substantial spatter" on the brown sports jacket Oland was wearing when he visited his father on the night he was killed.  (this has always bothered me).

They "suffered from what we call 'disconfirmation bias,'" he argued. "A psychologist would understand this. They already had their theory and any evidence inconsistent with the theory would receive short shrift," while evidence that supported it was "overvalued."

Hello All,

I am working on a new project putting together maps for each Province showing the known missing persons LKP(Last known Position) or a generic place holder if it is a general area.
Currently in progress is a map of New Brunswick which can be found here: NB Missing Map

Please feel free to take a look and let me know your thoughts.

If anyone is interested in assisting with their local Province or a specific province please send me a message and we can have a discussion on the process in place and where the data is being pulled from.

Current Legend:
Blue - Male
Deep Pink - Female
Caution Triangle - General Area, no specific LKP

Iirc, the witness was a man who worked for Caissie in Alberta and he claimed Caissie was working with him the whole time that Carol was being victimized.
