At about 11:06 p.m. on the evening of May 6th, 2005 a farmer tilling a field, near Highway 21 and Township Road 534 east of Edmonton, discovered a female body that appeared to have been dumped, part of a pattern that has become all too familiar to Strathcona RCMP.

Investigators said the body had decomposed but was clothed and had not been burned.

Project KARE, the RCMP-led task force investigating the deaths of women involved in "high-risk lifestyles," was called in.

Ellie-May Meyer

A week after the discovery, police identified the body as that of Ellie-May Meyer, a sex-trade worker who usually worked the area of 118th Ave and 95th Street in Edmonton and was last seen alive on April 1st, 2005.

While withholding cause, police labelled her death a homicde. Investigators estimated she had been in the field where she was found for less than two weeks.

Meyer was the seventh slain sex-trade worker to be found on the city's outskirts since 2002. She had registered with Project KARE in 2003 but was not reported missing.

In the summer of 2004, Meyer was interviewed by a local newspaper in connection with the deaths of Rachel Quinney, 19, Monique Pitre, 30, and Melissa Munch, 23.

Quinney's body was found June 11th, 2004, and Pitre and Munch were found a few days apart in January 2003.

Ironically, Meyer's body was found within just a few kilometres of the three, all in an area northeast of Sherwood Park.


Joseph Laboucan charged

On September 12th, 2008 RCMP announced that Joseph Laboucan had been charged with second-degree murder in connection with Meyer's death.

Laboucan gets Extension: Next in Court, November, 27th, 08

By SUN MEDIA
   

FORT SASKATCHEWAN -- At least another month will go by before any progress is made in a case involving a slain Edmonton prostitute.

A lawyer for Joseph Laboucan appeared Thursday in Fort Saskatchewan provincial court and was granted another extension before having to enter a plea to a single count of first-degree murder related to the death of 33-year-old Ellie May Meyer.

Laboucan's next court date is Nov. 27 in Fort Saskatchewan.

The 23-year-old accused is currently serving a life sentence after being convicted in the slaying of Edmonton teenager Nina Courtepatte, who was sexually assaulted and murdered April 2005 on a dark golf course outside of Edmonton.

Laboucan was originally charged with second-degree murder in Meyer's death late last month.

However, the charge has since been upgraded by the Crown, who declined to give any reason for the change when questioned by media following the brief court appearance.

Meyer's body was found by a farmer tilling a field in the late evening hours of May 6, 2005, near the intersection of Range Road 224 and Township Road 534, just east of Edmonton.

Project KARE, which is investigating up to nine other unsolved murders, spent nearly 3 1/2 years investigating Meyer's death before a charge was laid.

You know, Joseph Laboucan liked to tell his friends, that he killed many people. He liked it. Dangerous guy, with dangerous friends, after the swarming death of Nina Courtepatte, 13, at the golf course, and the slaying of Ellie May Myer 3 days before. Was he alone then, or were his co horts with him there too.?

He admitted to dabbling in the black arts. He likes to kill. He likes power and control over someone, and killed Ellie May Myer. He got others to follow in the NINA slaying, so how many did he and friends kill?

Edmonton judge bans story after publication
 
 
By Karen Kleiss, edmontonjournal.comJune 10, 2009 5:59 PM

EDMONTON - An Edmonton judge has ruled that court records made public Wednesday morning in the first-degree murder case against Joseph Laboucan are in fact protected by a publication ban.

The decision, issued shortly after 3 p.m., means a news story based on the records that was published five hours earlier on The Journal’s website, edmontonjournal.com, was effectively unpublished.

Provincial Court Judge James Wheatley said the Criminal Code bans publication of evidence that comes before the court during a preliminary hearing. That ban, he said, applies to the unsealed court records because another judge ordered the ban into effect at an earlier court appearance.

“Just because something is part of the public record does not prevent it from being subject to a publication ban,” Wheatley said. “For clarity, the publication ban imposed ... April 9, 2009 is in place.”

The documents -- hundreds of pages of court records -- contained extensive details about the steps police took in their investigation into the murder of Ellie May Meyer, a city sex trade worker found raped and bludgeoned to death on May 6, 2005.

Laboucan has been charged with first-degree murder in connection with her death. He was also convicted in 2008 of first-degree murder, kidnapping and aggravated sexual assault in the death of 13-year-old Nina Courtepatte, but the conviction was quashed on appeal and a new trial was ordered.

Michael Briscoe, the man awaiting a new trial in the murder of Nina Courtepatte, has been charged with first degree murder in the death of Ellie May Meyer, Global has learned.


Briscoe remains in police custody and there is no word on the date of his first court appearance.


Meyer was a 33-year-old sex-trade worker found dead in a field east of Edmonton in May 2005.


RCMP have pursued an open and active investigation since the discovery of Meyer's body near Highway 21 and Township Road 534, east of Edmonton, on May 7, 2005. Evidence gathered by investigators has provided the critical reasonable and probable grounds required to enable a charge against Briscoe to be sworn.

Hold on one second!!!!

Isn't Michael Briscoe the guy the judge took pity on and dropped charges against, in the Nina case?

If so, that judge is a mega idiot.
