    Pamela Darlington, 19, Murdered in 1973, Kamloops; Unsolved

    Darlington, 19, was last seen alive Nov. 6, 1973, at the David Thompson Pub in the company of a man with messy blond hair.

    Her body was found the next day by Frank Almond Sr. and his son Frank, who spotted her body at the edge of their property where it bordered Pioneer Park.

    RCMP spokeswoman Cpl. Annie Linteau said investigators continue to believe someone knows something. They urge anyone who thinks they know anything at all - no matter how small - to come forward.

    At one time, Bodnaruk suspected U.S. serial killer Ted Bundy was responsible for Darlington’s murder.

    The nude body of the 19-year-old was found at the edge of the Thompson River in 1973 with bite marks on her body — a Bundy trademark in some U.S. killings. But investigators concluded that although Bundy had been known to visit Canada, there was no evidence he was in the area at the time.

    Bundy, a former Seattle resident, was caught and sentenced to death in Florida for three murders. Just before Bundy was executed in 1989, he confessed to committing more than 20 murders but investigators felt he was responsible for many more.

    “Bundy didn’t confess anything until the end,” Bodnaruk said. “I felt police here should have gone down to talk to Bundy.”

    A month after Weys' disappeared, Pamela Darlington, 19, of Kamloops, vanished. Pamela had told her roommates at about 9 p.m. on Nov. 6, 1973, that she planned to hitchhike to a local bar.

    The next day, her nude body was found face down, partially clothed in the water of the Thompson River at Pioneer Park. She had been badly beaten.

    The only clue officers had was from a passing train crew, who reported seeing a 1950s off-white or salmon-pink rusty Chrysler coming from the park and trying to cross the railway tracks.

    The train got there first, blocking the car's exit, so the driver backed up and raced to the next crossing.

    Again, the car was too late, so it tore off to a third crossing, which had been closed years before. The car turned off its lights as the train passed.

    The tip led nowhere.

    Mel Weisgerber, one of the original detectives who worked on Pamela's murder, said investigators looked at the possibility that a serial killer may have been responsible for the murders of Pamela and Gale, as well as the 1974 murder of Colleen MacMillen, 16, who was found near 100 Mile House.

    Police analyze DNA samples for Highway of Tears leads

    Police are appealing for the public's help in the case of Darlington, whose body was found partly clothed in the Thompson River at Pioneer Park in Kamloops on Nov. 7, 1973. She was severely beaten and the killer left bite marks on her skin.
    About 6:30 the night before, Darlington finished her shift at Gondola Pizza, where she had started working four days
    earlier, and later returned to her apartment with her two roommates.

    At 9:30 p.m. Darlington hitchhiked alone to a Kamloops bar, then called the David Thompson pub, and was last seen around 11 p.m. walking to the back of the pub with a man witnesses didn't recognize. He was five feet, 10 inches tall with scruffy blond hair to just above his shoulder
