In regards to Susan Duff's case the RCMP did charge her stepfather's brother with her death some ten years after the fact.  He was held in custody for 7 days then the charges were stayed.  It seems the RCMP did not confer with Crown Counsel before laying them.  CC didn't feel the evidence would support the charges.

That happens a lot. I think the police were hoping an arrest would bring some publicity and hopefullly a witness or something. Clearly the police feel there enough, but the Crown does not.

Here are some not listed as HOT cases but from same general time and zone. Notice how Verna Bjerky was found just west of Hope. Chelsey Acorn was found just east of Hope.


1981/05/02  Yale  BC   17   F   Bjerky  Verna
1981/02/28  Golden  BC   19  F  Ha   Oanh
1979/09/26   Penticton   BC  12   F  Duff  Susan
1979/08/07  Davis Bay  BC 17  F   Jamieson Mary Ellen



I would like to correct you here. Verna's body has never been found. Only some of her personal effects. I was 5 when she went missing, but remember it very clearly, because I grew up in  Yale. I know, or should say knew her parents and siblings. They have asked Olsen again and again for her location, but he refuses to Even acknowledge her without a deal. I've always held out hope that er remains will be found and some peace can had by the remaining family members.

I'm glad you're perservering Melody;  if people will just take the time, as you say and click on your link - somebody might remember one of those articles belonging to a loved one.

I know that until you tie him to at least one murder, this is all considered suposition, but it seems to me if he was bringing home those items, they were "trophies". 

I think, with the police "it's got to be their idea, (sorry girl, I know you respect them) but most of the time, they just can't be bothered.  When the police are looking for someone to charge, they'll come to any door and gladly take your information;  but when you spot a crime, they "wouldn't hear of it". 

I think you should send all the information you've got to Interpol.  Lord only knows what he may have done before landing here in /72.  Sometimes you'll get more help from police in other countries than where you pay your taxes.

Despere, I was just reading your entry here and noticed that you had listed an unknown person with a dod (or found) as May 3, 2006. The date intrigues me do you have any other details such as where the person was found or their sex, or whether they suspect a connection to horses ie racing.   Thanks Stephanie

From Kindheart

Hello Desespere, here is some thoughts i am having. Seems there was a move from the southern part of BC 97 highway corridor in the early 1980's to Alberta, or they were visiting friends/family? They also could just move around alot for work? Thoughts on this? I did not include many other cases from same time frame from across the country.

I think im on to something!!! There was a girl that recently went missing and a small quote from it was

NEWS STORY HEADLINE IS:

"Parents of young woman who vanished from Highway of Tears area issue plea for help
By NEAL HALL, VANCOUVER SUN June 7, 2011 2:27 PM"

IMPORTANT QUOTE:

"As the victim drove closer, an older man came out of the driver's side and flagged her down. When the young woman got out of her vehicle to offer assistance, the man grabbed the woman and began forcing her into his truck.

The victim fought back by punching and kicking the assailant. He released his hold on the terrified woman when one of her kicks landed in the man's groin. The victim ran to her vehicle and fled the scene.

The suspect in the failed attack is described as a white male aged 60 to 70 with neatly kept long white hair, a white bushy beard extending to his collar bone and darker coloured eyebrows also growing together to form a "unibrow."

He is estimated to be 173 centimetres tall (five-foot-eight), weigh about 86 kilograms (190 lbs.) and was wearing a grey sweater, black jeans and cowboy boots.

The victim recalled the man was driving a 1992 Dodge Dakota pickup truck with Alberta plates that had a gold-coloured exterior and blue-grey interior, with a DeeZee brand tool box in the back of the truck."




Alberta plates??? Could we be on to something here? :o
The news story link is at
http://www.iammissing.ca/Missing%20Start%20Jan-11.html#Josee-Lynn_Savard-Tefler  Scroll down to MADISON SCOTT.
The Alberta plates are mentioned in the story about MADISON SCOTT, she recently dissapiared near the High Way Of Tears... The Serial Killer is still on the loose!!!

Scroll down a bit and theres another news story about Krystle Ann Julia Knott - Rene Lynn Gunning

"RCMP is requesting information about possible sightings in February 2005 of Gunning and Knott along Highway 16 and Highway 43 between Edmonton and the Forestry Trunk Road. They are also asking for information on the pair’s known hangouts or activities, any known acquaintances, and any other information that may help the investigation. The Project KARE tip line is 1-877-412-KARE "

Yes you probably are onto something. There are a couple of killers recently arrested in Alberta who may have hung out in BC. And a few years ago, they sort of solved that Nicole Hoar case, but nothing has been published since they executed that warrant. So many weirdo's in that area, there could be many of them.
