    On the July long weekend in 1994, Roxanne Thiara, who was walking the streets as a sex-trade worker, told a friend she was going out with a customer. Roxanne walked around the corner of a building and was never seen alive again.

    Roxanne's body was found Aug. 17, 1994, dumped in the bush along Highway 16, six kilometres before the community of Burns Lake.

    Roxanne was raised by a loving foster family in Quesnel and did well in school until the rebellious teenager ran away at age 15 to Prince George, where she started selling sex to survive.

    Her biological father, Roland Twan, a friendly man with an honest air who works odd jobs and is trying to stay sober, reconnected with Roxanne when she was 12.

    "She was a happy kid. Happy, very outgoing, friendly. A very nice person," Twan recalls. "She was so good-looking. A beautiful girl."

    Roxanne Thiara



    15 years old, from N/A, murdered in 1994
    Roxanne Thiara,15, was last seen in Prince George, British Columbia in July 1994. She was found dead off Burns Lake along The Highway of Tears one month after she disappeared. "Roxanne had been missing for over a month before we were even notified that she was missing," her aunt, Carla Bruyere said. "I wasn't notified until they actually found her [body]." The case is being investigated by Project E-PANA, a task force dedicated to unsolved murders with links to Highway 16 between Prince George and Prince Rupert, otherwise known as The Highway of Tears, in British Columbia.
