Des, a lot of libraries have great resoruces for reading old newspapers. If you ever make to your library, you can ask how to access those archives.

If I make it down to big city Library, I am going to see if I can access the news about this case.

P.S. Where are these archives you all are referring too?

If you go downtown to check their collection, please see if you can find out any information on the "chief suspect", a 32 year old who was released around April 11, 1992. A search of the Toronto Star Archives, linked to the newspaper's website, yields only the one article dated that April 11. He passed a lie detector test....
I could spend all day at the reference library looking through the microfiche but I never get a chance to go downtown these days....

Most do. When I was living in Ottawa, they had many newspapers available at there DT branch. Probably Edmonton is the same, if you go the main branch (ussually downtown) you should be able to access them there.

Are you guys using some online service too? I just searched to see if I can find what you all are using and cannot find it.

Thansk.

Google Toronto Star Archives and it's the third hit that comes up. Then you can search away for articles from 1985 to today....Try typing Michael Dunahee....
They have another site for older papers but I never tried it. I only used it for the Dunahee and Morin cases so far.

Oh neat, thanks y'all. Too bad there is not a more extensive newspaper archves setup for Canada, it would be neat to read articles from the past. Toronto probably just covers that area, otherwise I would try that service out. Maybe I will anyway.

Hello  Been hoping something would happen with this case  for ages. How can a 4 year old just vanish in broad daylight with hardly a clue to follow.  Does anyone know how many pedophiles were in the area at that time.  I`m thinking that the witness has been interviewed many times since the abduction, but haven`t heard a peep!

Hi Solvy,

I have no idea how many pedophiles live in the area, but probably a few. For a child to go missing like that, you can count on some sicko being involved. It is possible the police do have a couple of person of interest, and who knows, maybe one day they can solve this.

It is the worst thing to have a child go missing and not know what happened. The people who do that to kids are the worst amung us.

There is an age enhanced photo of Michael on the National Centre for Missing and Exploited Children.

  He is age progressed to 17 here.

You are welcome.  I have seen what the artists go through to get the pictures done.  They are the true experts.

following up on archived news, I found a bit more info on the "chief suspect" in the Hamilton Spectator dated Apr 15/92

Victoria police interviewed a 32 yr old one month after micheal dunahee disappeared. The man (not named) lived at a Gorge Road hotel, blocks from the school.  He saiid he was in a mental institution, and fighting a drunk driving charge when police first questioned him.  He was vague about his whereabouts at the time of the abduction, saying he was working as a cook at a Victoria hotel, or visiting Seattle.

Wonder if he was a known pedophile. Based on the fact he has never been located and there is no trace, I think some pedop got him. I pray that it turns out he is sitll alive. Maybe one day we will learn.

 I think somewhere I did read that he had a previous charge involving a minor male, can't remember where I read it though.  I wonder if he ever had a brown van?
