I feel the police will definitely get the person or persons who murdered Kimberly. There is some really sick individuals who committed this crime. Anyone who knows who did this to Kimberly, should come forward. When young people should be having a good time and going to proms and movies, they are committing very violent crimes. Something has to be done to warn teenagers of the violence that awaits, if they put too much personal information about themselves on line. My sympathy goes out to Kimberly's parents and her friends and extended family members. :'( :'( :'( :'(

Victoria teen homicide probe yields suspects

Police in Victoria say they have identified suspects in the death of Kimberly Proctor, and are calling on those who know the suspects to help solve the crime.

The burned body of the Langford teenager was found in a wooded area near the Galloping Goose Trail west of Victoria on March 19, about a day after she was last seen getting off a public bus.

On Thursday morning police announced they have identified suspects they believe are responsible for Kimberly's death. But they did not release the names of the suspects or the number of people involved.

Investigators also executed a search warrant at a residence located in the 3200 block of Happy Valley Road, in Langford, B.C., shortly before 8 p.m. Wednesday, they said.

Based on their knowledge of the suspects, investigators said they are confident that Kimberly's homicide was not a random crime.

The investigators are calling on the public to step forward with additional information to advance the investigation.

"Our team believes there are individuals in the community who know our suspects, and know what happened to Kimberly. They know who they are, and now is the time to support our team, and help solve Kimberly's brutal murder," said Cpl. Darren Lagan, the spokesman for the investigative team.

The police said they remain in frequent contact with Kimberly's parents, sharing what information they can. Kimberly's parents remain supportive of the investigation, and continue their request for privacy, said police.

"We are sharing this limited information on our progress in identifying suspects, in hopes of providing the community with some answers to the many questions and fears they have surrounding Kimberly's murder," said Lagan.

RIP Kimberley; Never to be forgotten.

Sat Jun 19, 11:31 AM

VANCOUVER (CBC) - Police say two teenagers have been arrested in the death of a Victoria teen whose badly burned body was found on a hiking trail in March.
ADVERTISEMENT

Kimberly Proctor, 18, was found dead March 19 near the Galloping Goose Trail in suburban Langford, on Vancouver Island.

Two male teenagers from Langford were arrested Friday afternoon, police said. One is 16 and the other 18, although the latter suspect was only 17 when Proctor was found.

"In the three months since the discovery of Kimberly's burned body near the Galloping Goose Trail, a team of committed and focused officers have put in over 20,000 investigational hours, been assigned over 6,000 tasks for follow up and conducted over 250 formal interviews," said Cpl. Darren Lagan, the spokesperson for the Vancouver Island RCMP.

"Those efforts guided investigators to discover evidence leading to the identification and arrest of these two suspects, both of whom remain in our custody."

Police asked anyone with information who has not yet spoken to them to call the Westshore RCMP at 250-474-2264.

In a video statement posted on the RCMP's website, Proctor's parents say she will be missed.

"This has left a huge void in our lives. We'll never know what she could have become or would have been, or what future we would have had with her," said her father, Fred Proctor.

"She was looking forward to graduating and growing up, so to speak, and she was looking forward to making her prom dress with her grandma."

He described his daughter as "a great kid with a big heart."

She was "gentle to a fault, always the peacemaker and the problem-solver amongst her friends," he said. "Words cannot describe what we've been going through."

Fred Proctor extended thanks to friends, family and the community for their support through such a difficult time. He asked the media to respect the family's privacy as they continue to grieve.

Kimberly's mother, Lucia Proctor, sits beside her husband in the video, saying little.

"All we can hope for now is for justice to be done for Kimberly," she said.

20,000 hours and 6,000 tasks. So much effort. For that, we say thank you. That is quite a commitment. Dedication is impressive. And, the family is so gracious in their grief thanking others. I sincerely hope the healing can begin for this family. And, peace from Kimberly. I hope we ca learn why teens thought this was an option. How we can keep others from thinking the same way.

At the link found at the end of this article are quite a few pictures and video's. There are pictures of the teen's but their faces have been smudged out, or the picture's are taken from the shoulders down, due to The Young Offender's Law.

Three months after Kimberly Proctor’s badly burned body was found by the edge of a creek, two Langford teens have been charged with the 18-year-old’s murder.

The males, ages 16 and 18, have been charged with first-degree murder, sexual assault, forcible confinement and indignity to human remains.

In a news conference Saturday morning, a visibly upset Cpl. Darren Lagan, spokesman for Island district RCMP, said the murder is the worst he’s seen in a decade on the force.

“Investigators have used the words ‘horrendous,’ ‘disturbing,’ ” Lagan said.

The RCMP remain tight-lipped on any details that might identify the two. They were both under the age of 18 at the time of the murder and their identities are protected under the Youth Criminal Justice Act.

However, Lagan did say that Proctor was familiar with her killers.

“This was not a random act. Kimberly, for whatever reason... was the intended victim.”

Proctor was last seen at a bus stop the morning of March 18. Her badly burned body was found the next day on a rock ledge next to Millstream Creek, beneath a bridge on the Galloping Goose Trail. It took police three days to identify her remains.

Both the investigation and media coverage of the murder ranged well beyond B.C., even reaching television news south of the border because of the role social networking sites played in revealing personal information about Proctor and fueling speculation about her murder.

Comments Proctor made on her profile on vampirefreaks.com — a website dedicated to the goth subculture that has been connected with the Dawson College shooting in Montreal in 2006 — fueled speculation that Proctor’s death was related to bullying.

Lagan, though, said while Proctor had been bullied in the past, there was no indication that it was an important factor in her death. He also warned against singling out any one aspect of the teen’s life.

“This could have been anyone’s daughter,” he said. “Her family deserves Kimberly to be seen as who she was and vampirefreaks.com is not a true representation of who she was.”

West Shore RCMP inspector Mark Fisher added that there was no way the family could have avoided the tragedy.

“Kim walked into this unknowingly and she didn’t deserve this.”

Friends and family have described Proctor as a typical teen who raised dozens of animals and was sewing her prom dress with her grandmother.

While Proctor’s family is asking for privacy, her parents released a videotaped statement Saturday morning.

Clutching his wife’s hand, Fred Proctor’s choked back tears as he tried to explain what the tragedy meant.

“Our home is quiet now,” he said. “This has left a huge void in our lives. We’ll never know what she could have become or would have been or what future we would have had with her.”

Discovery of the teen’s body kicked off a massive investigation. A core of 40 RCMP investigators and additional officers from other forces logged 20,000 hours trying to determine who was responsible.

While some investigators will continue to work on the case, Lagan said police expect no further arrests.

“Our investigators are confident they have arrested the individuals responsible for Kimberly’s homicide,” Lagan said.

That will come as some comfort for Proctor’s mother, Lucia, who remained silent through most of the videotaped statement, but managed just one thought.

“All we can hope for now is for justice to be done for Kimberly.”

The accused have been remanded into custody and are expected to appear in Victoria Youth Court Monday morning.

Two teens charged in death of B.C. student whose burned body found in ravinePublished on June 20th, 2010
Published on June 20th, 2010
The Canadian Press  VICTORIA — Exactly three months after 18-year-old Kimberly Proctor’s badly burned body was discovered in a ravine along a popular Vancouver Island hiking trail, the RCMP announced Saturday the arrest of two Langford teenagers for her “premeditated murder.”
Topics : RCMP , Langford , Victoria , Colwood Proctor’s body was discovered on March 19 in Langford, a rural suburb of Victoria, in a wooded ravine along the Galloping Goose hiking trail that runs 60 kilometres from Victoria to Sooke.

The Grade 12 student’s murder shocked the small community and sparked a flurry of online rumours and web postings, some of which investigators said were untrue and hampering their investigation.

On Saturday, RCMP Insp. Mark Fisher announced that two male teens, aged 16 and 18, were arrested without incident on Friday and charged with first-degree murder. The teens, who cannot be identified because both were under 18 at the time of Proctor’s killing, are also charged with forcible confinement, sexual assault and indignity to human remains.

“Crimes such as these thankfully do not happen very often, but when they do they have a devastating effect on the community,” Fisher told reporters in Victoria.

“It is my hope that the young women in the community, their parents and the citizens who use the Galloping Goose trail can now rest easy.”

Fisher did not say what investigators believed motivated the killing, but he stressed it wasn’t a random attack and described it as “premeditated.”

The teenage suspects are expected to make their first court appearances this morning in Victoria.

Last month, the RCMP announced they had identified suspects in the case after executing a search warrant at a home in Langford near the Galloping Goose tail.

In March, police searched a lake near the trail but did not say what they were looking for or what they may have found.

Fisher said the extensive investigation required “specialized investigative techniques,” and the mayors of Colwood and Langford were asked for extra money to cover those costs.

Proctor’s parents recorded a tearful video statement, describing what father Fred Proctor called the “hell” they’ve been living through since their daughter’s death.

The teen’s father described his daughter as a homebody who spent much of her time listening to music, chatting with friends on the computer and playing with the many pets she had kept over the years.

“Our home is quiet now,” Fred Proctor said in the video, released Saturday by the RCMP.

“This has left a huge void in our lives and we’ll never know what she could have become or would have been or what future we would have had with her. . . . Words cannot describe what we’ve been going through”

Proctor was last seen getting off a bus in Langford in the morning of March 18, the day before her body was discovered. She was reported missing after she didn’t show up for a babysitting job that night.

The two teens plead guilty, Crown Prosecutor Peter Juk read the agreed statement of facts. But the two suspects will not appear in court until March 28. Does anyone know why so long?  Kimberly's body was found on March 19. It will nearly be one year, even though the teens were arrested nearly three months after the body was found.

Are they waiting for them to turn adult age so that if they are given adult sentences it will seem more pulpable?  Is there something within the law that I'm not getting?

Also, this is the first time fI heard that they had lured her into one of their homes, sexually assaulted her, then killed her, took her body to the park and then tried to burn the body.  Where do 17 and 18-year-olds learn this? How in the world are we growing kids that just because they want to have sex they take it, kill, and perform indignities to the body?  WTH is going on.

i live in this city....
my daughters went to school with KIM
i am sickened........

my girls went to school with these boys.........
my oldest daughter had talked with KIM when KIM reached out to her in confusion about why she kept attracting "PSYCHOS"........

what makes me really angry/sad is that OTHER kids KNEW these boys had committed this heinous crime......and they said nothing?

the Courts are pretty backed up here.....
they can sentence the boys as adults regardless of their age.......if the Court decides to accept the Crowns submission that the boys be charged as adults

one piece of information that was incorrect is that the 18 year old was reported as NOT having an active facebook account, which is untrue, he did have a facebook account and many people were posting on it protesting his innocence.......

freespirit, you have every right to be sickened by what happened to Kimberly. Everyone should be. The day boys lure girls to their homes for sexual gratification, then feel they have to kill them, and burn them, is a very sad day in the world today. A huge sign that some moral fiber has broken down and must be addressed. I sure hope the community is banning together to get the message out to other teens that this is not to be tolerated. And, to try to figure out why teens within the community thought of doing this in the first place. It sounds like they should also be trying to figure out why the community did not come forward if they knew who had committed the crimes and take care of that problem as well.

I'm glad your daughter is safe. Absolutely no family should experience such a tragedy within their own home or within their community.

Here is an update:

Quote
When the teenage killers of 18-year-old Kimberly Proctor come before a judge later this month, the community will finally learn if the pair are sentenced as youth or adults.

Crown prosecutor Peter Juk said at a court hearing Wednesday that the bulk of the two-week sentencing hearing would focus on this issue.

The Langford teens were 16 and 17 when they brutally raped and killed their classmate and burned her remains under a bridge on the Galloping Goose Trail on March 18 and 19, 2010. They pleaded guilty to first degree murder and causing indignity for human remains, while charges of sexual assault and forcible confinement were stayed.

As adults, their crimes would net them life in prison with no chance of parole for 10 years, while a youth sentence for the same crime is maximum six years in prison followed by four years of conditional supervision in the community.

If they are sentenced as youth, their names will remain protected by a publication ban, and they will not be listed on the sexual offenders registration. Juk said regardless of how they are sentenced, he plans to push for DNA orders and weapons prohibition for both teens.

Defense lawyers said they’ve reviewed secondary psychological and psychiatric assessments for their clients and compared those results to the court-ordered assessments.

Robert Jones is representing the younger accused, who has admitted to instigating the crime, which he had fantasized about from a young age. Jones said the secondary reports were in line with the initial findings.

“There is nothing that would allow me to challenge the court opinion,” Jones said. “I have no need for cross-examination (of the court experts).”

However, Steven Kelliher, who is representing older teen, took issue with his client being diagnosed a “sexual sadist,” which refers to somebody who gets sexual excitement from inflicting pain on another person.

“It’s unsupported by the evidence,” Kelliher said, advising the judge he’d need one day to cross-examine the psychologist who made the diagnoses.

Juk said he’d need three-and-a-half days to present the Crown’s evidence.

All parties agreed that a two-week sentencing hearing beginning March 28 remained appropriate.

If the teens are to be sentenced as adults, a three week adjournment will be required after that hearing for the probation authority to prepare a report with recommendations on whether the teens should serve time in a youth correctional facility or a federal prison. Then a placement hearing would be held.

Both teens will be required to be in B.C. Supreme Court in Victoria for their sentencing hearing in person, rather than by video conference.

They’ve been incarcerated since their arrests on June 18, 2010, and no bail has been sought to secure their release.

Caution: This story contains material that may be disturbing to readers

Disturbing and gruesome details of the abduction and brutal murder of an 18-year-old girl were revealed in a Victoria, B.C. courtroom Monday as prosecutors argued that the two teenaged killers should be sentenced as adults.

The boys, who were 16 and 18 at the time of the murder, pleaded guilty last year to killing Kimberly Proctor, burning her body before dumping it on a rural trail near Colwood. The pair was charged with first-degree murder, forcible confinement, sexual assault and indignity to human remains in her death.

Text messages between the co-accused revealed that they had carefully planned the abduction and murder of Proctor.

Both boys had also been involved in joint rape fantasies for at least a year before the murder, according to a psychiatric report presented in the courtroom.

On March 18, after declining the boys' advances, Proctor was lured to a home of one of the boys where her hands and ankles were duct taped. They stuffed a sock in her mouth and sexually assaulted her for hours.

A knife was used to mutilate her body and she eventually died. An autopsy revealed she couldn't breathe because of the tape over her mouth.

Kimberly's parents and relatives sat in the front row of the courtroom as they heard that the boys both had sex with her after she was dead.

Her mother and father cried when they heard how Kimberly begged not to be hurt, and told her killers that she was sorry.

Crown prosecutors also revealed how the boys discussed using a funnel to pour Drano – a chemical drain cleaner – into Proctor's body.

Her body was placed in a freezer in the garage. The next day the teens carried her body in a duffel bag on a public bus to the Galloping Goose Trail, where they lit her on fire.

The teen's charred body was found near a bridge on the trail.

In online chats, the boys admitted to a friend that they had picked Proctor because she was an easy target.

The father of one of the teens is in jail for the brutal murder of a teen girl under similar circumstances.

Because the son is a young offender, neither he nor his father can be named, but the two killings were strikingly similar. Both girls were lured, beaten, bound, sexually assaulted, choked and killed.

In court last year, the boy said he had dreamed about killing someone since he was young, but offered no other reason for the murder.

Neither boys looked at the audience during Monday's proceedings – both stared straight ahead and only looked at the judge.

Punishment

The two-week sentencing hearing will determine if the young men will be sentenced as youth or adults.

A youth sentence for the teens would mean a minimum jail term of 10 years without parole. This jumps to life with 25 years without parole as an adult.

Crown prosecutor Peter Juk told the court that imposing adult sentences is the only way the pair would be held properly accountable for Proctor's brutal slaying.

In court, Crown lawyers played taped conversations between the boys as they were being taken to their first court appearance just three days after their arrest – and after two full days of police interrogation.

Juk said the casual banter between them proved they were "hardly affected" by the crime and "held their own."

Juk also contends the boys each changed their stories as the court date approached – accusing the other of the most horrific and disturbing acts.

A 40-person team from Vancouver Island RCMP clocked more than 20,000 hours during its investigation into Proctor's death, and conducted more than 250 formal interviews.

The details of Proctor's murder were so repulsive and appalling – some officers who worked the case have gone into counselling.
