Kimberly Hallgarth has already been linked to a former B.C. Lions player. Now, as police work to determine how she died, there are indications she was working as an escort.


Kimberly Hallgarth's death is still a mystery. But it's clear the 33 year-old had an impact. On a Facebook memorial site, she's remembered as a good friend, and a great mom.


Her mother Wendy Hallgarth says she was a sweetheart.


"She went to Vegas when she was 18, worked in the clubs down there as a hostess,'' Hallgarth said.

"She came here when she was expecting because she didn't want her daughter born down there."


Hallgarth's three-year-old daughter is now in the care of the ministry. She was out with a babysitter when her mother's body was found on Sunday night.


"It's just so hard to fathom that it could happen to her you know that she's gone?" her mother said. "Your kids aren't supposed to go before you do."


Hallgarth is linked with an assault trial involving former B.C. Lion Josh Boden.


Boden was also charged with theft and mischief. That's then the team cut him.

Hallgarth was called to testify at the trial last summer. But the charges were dropped when she couldn't recall key details. Boden is no longer involved in professional football in Canada.


RCMP Cpl. Dale Carr said an investigation is under way.


"We're going to absolutely talk to everybody, everybody that's linked to her in a past relationship, that's linked to her at any level we're going to want to speak to those individuals,'' said Carr.


A friend told CTV News that Hallgarth once owned a tanning salon in Vancouver. There are indications she was working in the escort industry before she died.


Hallgarth's home is still under police guard.


"An autopsy has been carried out. But if it's still a little uncertain, there may have to be a period we have to wait for a toxicology and a complete and thorough pathology report that can take a great deal of time,'' said Carr.


That may mean a longer wait for family and friends, before the mystery surrounding Hallgarth is solved.

Ex-CFL player Josh Boden back in a Surrey court


A troubled former professional football player who played for teams in B.C. and Ontario is once again back in court.

Joshua Joseph Boden, 29, was charged last month with assault in connection with an incident that took place on March 13 in Surrey and involved a female complainant.

Boden was released on $1,500 bail on March 21, but was charged on March 30 with breaching an undertaking or recognizance.

His next appearance on those charges is April 11.


Boden is also scheduled to go to trial in provincial court in Vancouver in June for allegedly breaching his probation.


Boden was given a practice roster position as a receiver with the B.C. Lions before the 2006 season and did play some games, but he was cut in the spring of 2008, shortly after he was charged with assault, theft and mischief in connection with an incident involving his ex-girlfriend.

In August of that year, the Crown stayed the charges after the complainant faltered on the witness stand. Boden went on to briefly play for the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.

During the years that followed, Boden faced a number of serious charges that were eventually stayed. They included firearms offences, sexual assault, break-and-enter, assault, uttering threats, possessing a controlled substance, procuring, living on the avails of prostitution, aiding a person to engage in prostitution and criminal harassment.

He was also the subject of a rare public warning issued by Vancouver police, who believed he posed a safety risk to the community.

In 2011, Boden was convicted of two counts of sexual assault, one count of wilfully obstructing a police officer and one count of assaulting a police officer. He was acquitted of one count of sexual assault.

While under police surveillance in 2009, Boden had groped two women at SkyTrain stations in Vancouver and resisted arrest. In September 2012 he received a sentence of one year in jail followed by three years of probation.

His own mother was afraid of him and feared for safety after his release from jail. While committing crimes he used the name Mike Boden. He blamed his release from CFL on Hallgarth. This guy was a violent train wreck. I wonder if he was in jail at the time sports scouts found him during prison workouts?
Sad case that he also has the daughter and is raising her when he has such a criminal past!

I took it as Kim.
.
from Wiki:

Quote
2008[edit]
Joshua Boden (AKA Mike Boden) was charged with assault, theft, and mischief (court file number 197454) in April 2008 in connection with a complaint laid by former girlfriend Kimberly Lynn Hallgarth, age 33. Hallgarth changed her story on the witness stand in August 2008 and charges were dropped. The charges resulted in Boden's dismissal from the BC Lions.[6]

I had to wonder if that was a mistake or a memory lapse that caused her to change her story.

According to her sister, Kim was terrified of him.  So - she was not forthright on the stand.

This is all too common.  Some women do not even show up at trial.

She was murdered shortly after. 
In my opinion only - he murdered her.  I think he blamed her for being fired from his team.

He might have an "air tight" alibi.  Who knows!!

I do also believe he is the perp. Someone lied for him apparently if he has an alibi.

Former CFL player Josh Boden has been charged with second-degree murder in connection with the 2009 death of his ex-girlfriend.
He is accused of killing Kimberly Lynn Hallgarth, who was found dead in her Burnaby, B.C. home in 2009.

Boden has had run-ins with the law before including theft, domestic assault, sexual assault and assaulting a police officer. He played briefly for the B.C. Lions and the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. The 31-year-old former wide receiver was cut from the Lions in 2008.

Boden is expected to appear in court Monday.
