    Filmmaker focuses on Highway of Tears

    When filmmaker Matt Smiley first heard about the Highway of Tears, he knew it was a story that had to be told.

    Now he's in Prince George with a camera crew and will be touring the 700 kilometre stretch of Highway 16, between here and Prince Rupert, examining the route where at least 18 young women have been murdered or have gone missing.

    It all began when the name of Nicole Hoar - the treeplanter from Red Deer who was last seen June 21, 2002 at a gas station west of Prince George - came up in a conversation with Smiley and his sister and brother-in-law, who live in Prince George.

    Smiley, who grew up in Montreal and lives in Los Angeles, had never heard of the Highway of Tears until then.

    VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- Canadian police have linked a dead U.S. convict to the killing of a teenage girl nearly 40 years ago, one of 18 young women who were killed or vanished along three highways in British Columbia over several decades. Oregon authorities are also investigating the man for possible links to four murders in the U.S. state.

    Highway of Tears: Victim's family makes emotional plea for tips ...

    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.

    AT the end of this you will find an overweight man who lives with Mum. Has a small penis and is extremely unattractive. He feels that "women" just are not that into him when, in fact, he is repulsive, but has tried at 'relationshionships.' Fact is: he cannot maintain a penile erection unless compulsive. That IS his goal. It is all the womens' faults as he kills them. HE is not worthy of them, and knows it. So he kills as he has no means, or money to satisfy.

    Just sayin'

    Judge reveals humanity in serial killer's trial



    Officially, the RCMP in British Columbia are probing 18 such murders or disappearances. But nationally, as the RCMP revealed last May, police across Canada recorded 1,181 incidents of aboriginal female murders and unresolved disappearances between 1980 and 2012.

    Prince George is where B.C. Supreme Court Justice Glen Parrett lives; it's also where he practised law with a famous firm and where he has long served as the resident judge.

    [...]

    He's a formidable character who runs a tight ship and has a delightfully low tolerance for BS. I thought he was smart and humane. His judgment offers evidence of both.

    He treated the murdered women, and their many relatives who were in court, with respect but not delicacy.

    About each he included humanizing details in "a process that can sometimes lose perspective through the use of labels which sometimes mask and obscure the people behind those labels."

    [...]

    He concluded that all four murders were committed during the course of a sexual assault or attempted sexual assault. Thus, he found Legebokoff was a sex offender and would be registered as such for life.
