As a family we truly never thought this open wound would be resolved in any way; we had given up hope.  We are grateful for the ongoing work by the police over the years on Gale's behalf and this new development that offers some answers and relief. Unfortunately, as the police have stated this compelling evidence is not definitive proof. To that end we, Gale's family, are asking people to think back to that time in the early 70's.

If you have any memories of this man Fowler or recollections of these events please contact the police tip line or crime stoppers. Perhaps you found her clothing and didn't understand what you had found; perhaps you met or worked with this man. Perhaps he assaulted you in some way, made you feel uncomfortable or maybe he was involved in a bar fight. Anything could be hugely helpful, even if you are not 100% certain it's truly related, or you think it's just trivial. If fear has kept you silent, Fowler can no longer hurt you in any way, so please come forward. For our family and other families that are going through the loss of a loved one there is still that uncertainty of not knowing; questions and emotions left hanging. If you can help in any way please do so for Gale and all the other women.

This is all we wish to say at this time, we ask if you have further questions please direct them to the police and respect our family's privacy.

More information was provided to the RCMP in regard the murder of Gale Weys.  It is unknown whether any of that has ever made its way to the family or if they would even wish to know anything not vetted through the RCMP. BJ Fowler was rightly identified as the culprit but there is one last story that should be known of Gale imo; she may very well have saved the life or lives of others on that same day by way of her actions. Fate and coincidence always play a role in outcomes but what ifs seldom get spoken of. Her's was one heroic heart.
