1980s Unsolved across Canada
« on: April 11, 2007, 11:43:10 PM »
These are names of primarily women and children who are either missing or have been murdered and their killers not yet caught. The information is compiled through online sources, predominantly police departments and some from missing people's sites. If you have any information about any of these unsolved crimes, please contact your local police department. Most names are or will be posted in the Unsolved Murders and Missing People topic in the appropriate  province section. If you need any information about any of these names, just ask and I'll post the info.

The column headers are in order:
Date last seen; year, mo, and day found (or same date if missing); Location found (or last seen if missing); age when last seen; Last name; First name; Middle name; and, whether Missing or Murdered. Unknown people are bolded and date last seen is not available. Also, if you would like to add names according to decade, please post them here and I'll update this list to include them.

UPDATE: I have added some new names. Red entries are additions as of Jan. 14/08

No there wasn't.  The family was looked at but it never came to fruition.  Can someone tell of Pinky Gustafsen had been murdered around the saame time.  My times lines are kinda blurred and when I was in hihg school I had other priorities.  Mostly making sure my sister was safe going to and from school.

Wasn't Pinky murdered in 1992? They arrested the guy and he was convited a couple years ago. It was a relativly young guy who was depressed and felt he should take his frustration out on someone.

I'm wondering if between 1975 and 1982 a woman in her 30s or 40s and a girl between the ages of 6 and 12 may have gone missing or have been murdered.

Underwear belonging to 2 females (a woman and child) was found under a carpet in a bog in Ottawa.  A child's nightgown and other articles of clothing, belonging to a woman and child, were suspiciously placed at the door of an apartment in a large tenent building in Gloucester (Ottawa), Ontario. 

The finds were several months apart.  In both instances, the articles of clothing were strangely and coincidentally found by the same man who claimed he didn't know anything about them and didn't want to notify the police.

The police said there no missing persons had been listed in the area. 

This same man had previously lived in Montreal and owned a burgundy red coloured van.

I am assuming the clothing belonged to a woman and child who met with foul play.  They could have gone missing in the Montreal area or in the Ottawa or surrounding areas.

That is weird considering the chances of a full moon are 3% - 6% depending on time. those numbers are really high.

Has there ever been any confirmed cases of full moon killers?

I do know many criminals prefer full moons to do there trade since it is easier to see, but murders do not tend to be planned, but a serial killer could have this same idea.

Wow, I have lived in Edson most of my life, and yet, I did not realize the Edson connection with Maureen Elizabeth Mosie

May 8, '81: Maureen Elizabeth Mosie, 33

 

Mosie's battered body was found beside a road near Kamloops. Mosie, who was from Edson, Alta., was hitchhiking between Salmon Arm and Kamloops.
