    Canada - Eve Ho, 17; Jackie Li, 18; Kevin Lim, 18; Toronto, 14 Aug 2006

    Puzzling case... I don't think much new information has appeared since the article below was published.


    "Police are investigating a possible connection between the murder of Toronto teenager Philip Sit and the disappearance of three of his classmates. Mr. Sit's skeletal remains were discovered in a King Township field on Aug. 9 after he had been missing for about 11 months. Five days later, 17-year-old Eve Ho, also known as Yee Wah Ho, went missing with her boyfriend, Jackie Li, 18, and another friend Kevin Lim, 18. "

    Just came across this video, with quite a bit more information provided by Det. Corsi of the York Regional Police:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I_VxmWtEfSE

    So to summarize, based on these links...

    Summer and Sept. 2005 - Eve Ho and her friend Phillip Sit, students at Harbord Collegiate in downtown Toronto, spend a lot of time together with Eve's boyfriend Jackie Li, who lives in Scarborough (approximately 20 km east of downtown Toronto).

    Sept. 24, 2005 - Phillip Sit disappears, after telling family members at home, in the early morning hours, that he is going out to meet friends.

    Aug. 9, 2006 - Phillip Sit's skeletal remains are found near the side of a rural highway, in York Region, approximately 40 km north of Toronto.

    Evening of Aug. 14, 2006 - Eve Ho, Jackie Li, and their friend Kevin Lim (also from Scarborough) disappear.

    -Eve and Jackie are believed to have taken their cell phones with them, but there has been no activity on the phones since their disappearance. Jackie is also said to have taken some cash with him. Kevin did not take his cell phone or his wallet. He borrowed some cash from his grandmother before he left, saying that he was going to the store to buy a drink and would be back soon. None of the three teenagers were employed, and there has been no activity on any of their bank accounts since they disappeared.

    -Eva did not own a passport. Jackie and Kevin did not take their passports with them. None of the three owned or had access to a car.

    -The three have made no known contact with anyone since disappearing. Eve's best friend said she was not aware of Eve having any problems that could be related to her disappearance.

    FindMarissa, as you suggested, Det. Corsi said she believes the three have information that could help the investigation into Phillip Sit's death. So they might have known something about it, and when Phillip's body was discovered, they might have feared that they would get in trouble with the police... Or perhaps, when the body was discovered, they might have become a target of someone who was responsible for Phillip's death... In that case, they might have known they were a target and run away. Although it does seem that it would be difficult for three 17-year-olds to intentionally run away together without leaving any trace, with hardly any money.

    I, too, have wondered about this case. At first I thought they were involved in this man's death and on the run but the fact they didn't have passports makes it unbelievable to believe they've left the country (to go to Asia, probably). Kids that age just aren't smart enough, in my opinion, to carry out this type of crime and have a secret bank account and counterfeit passport and escape the country. So, maybe, organized crime? Have their parents been investigated thoroughly? Hmmm... I don't know.

    I always have thought someone is hiding \ protecting them . I don't think they went to far away like hong kong. Do you think they planned to meet up and run ? But where would they run ( that's what has always got me ) I wonder why Kevin left his wallet and cell phone maybe he was making it look like he was coming back

    Yes, strange that he wouldn't take either of those things, unless he planned on not being identifiable... If they really did plan to run away together without being identified, this would definitely be hard without someone else's help. I wonder if investigators were able to go through their cell phone and Internet activity that occurred beofre their disappearance, to see if they had contact with anyone unexpected.

    An old read...

    Solving and preventing crime through online relationships
    Sept 4, 2009

    snipped...'You've got to go face to face with the kids in the community," says Mills, "and continue that relationship with the online social networking. And when we have something to say to help solve a crime, we have a ready-made audience there."

    Mills's own epiphany about the cyber world began after the disappearance of those three teens Eve Ho, 17, her boyfriend Jackie Li, also 17, and Kevin Lim, 18. They vanished five days after the remains of their 17-year-old friend, Phillip Sit, was found in King Township, just north of Toronto in early August, 2006.

    Mills was a truant officer at the time, monitoring some of the popular online chat groups to see what kids were up to. When Eve Ho's friends told her school principal at Harbord Collegiate Institute that Ho was missing, it was Mills who took their statement.

    Just found this thread,I had been posting about this very peculiar case in the WS Toronto crimes thread.
    Where on earth are these teenagers, I am surprised not to hear it discussed anywhere which is surprising given that these kids attended a trendy downtown highschool.
    The parents (especially of the young girl, 16!) must be frantic after these years with no answers whatsoever!

    Bumping this case, what happened to these downtown Toronto teenagers?
    Wonder if it is ever spoken about in either the high school community or Asian one?

    Are the kids alive or dead, where could they be?

    "Eva Ho, missing since 2006

    Eight days after her 17th birthday, Yee Wah (Eva) Ho made arrangements with her best friend to meet up at the Eaton Centre in Toronto. Eva didn't show up and hasn't been heard from or seen since, according to Toronto police.

    Her boyfriend, Jackie Li, 17, and their mutual friend, Kevin Lim, 18, went missing the same day, Aug. 14, 2006, and they also have not been seen or heard from since.

    What makes this case even more extraordinary is that 11 months earlier, a high school friend of the three, Phillip Ho Sing Sit, 17, also went missing and a week before the three went missing, Sit's skeletal remains were found north of Toronto. York Regional Police say Sit was a homicide victim.

    In 2007 Toronto police unveiled a life-sized statue of Eva Ho they had commissioned by local sculptor A.D. Milne. They made Ho the subject of their "first Toronto Crime Stoppers YouTube appeal for information" but their efforts have so far been unsuccessful".
