    I thought this case sounded obstructive from the get go.

    I think it is possible that it could be an Airline Pilot. But I don't think too many limo drivers would take their Limo's down Highway 16, just too rough a road. Pilot's on the other hand have lay overs after a flight and I think that is not only highly possible, but it's a great notion to put into the think tank.


    There have been serial killers identified on Highway 16. In 2012 DNA testing proved that Bobby Jack Fowler had been he killer of Colleen MacMillen, after an extensive search of International Data Bases Interpol came up with him. Microscopic DNA Samples were found on her clothes that weren't capable of being obtained at the time. He is also suspected, and perhaps proven to be (by this time) the killer of Pamela Darlington and Gale Weys.

    After taking a fresh look at Fowler he is suspected to have killed 20 up to 20 people across the US and Canada. On January 8, 1996, Fowler was convicted of Kidnapping in the 1st Degree, Attempted Rape in the 1st Degree, Sexual Abuse in the 1st Degree, Coercion, Assault in the Fourth Degree, and Menacing. Afer a woman he was assauling jumped from a first floor window naked and tied and managed to get help. Fowler was getting his car ready to leave when police arrived. A minute later and he would have been gone. He was sentenced to 195 months (16 years, 3 months) with the possibility of parole. In May 2006, Fowler died at the age of 66 in Oregon State Penitentiary from lung cancer.

    (Source 48 Hours and background research)

    If this is true (and not just a way of closing cold cases) I could explain a lot in the timeline of Highway 16.

    Then there was the other Serial Killer caught on Highway 16 Cody Legebokoff.

    The police allege Legebokoff is responsible for the murders of:
    • Jill Stacey Stuchenko, 35-year-old mother of five, last seen on October 9, 2009. She was found dead four days later in a gravel pit on the outskirts of Prince George, British Columbia.[11]
    • Natasha Lynn Montgomery, 23, last seen August 31 or early September 1, 2010. Her body has never been found, but her DNA was later found in samples taken in Legebokoff's apartment.[11]
    • Cynthia Frances Maas, 35, last seen September 10, 2010. Her body was found in a Prince George park the following month. Maas died of blunt-force trauma to the head and penetrating wounds. She had a hole in her shoulder blade, a broken jaw and cheekbone, and injuries to her neck consistent with someone's stomping on it.[11]

    The Crown has said Stuchenko, Montgomery and Maas had worked in the sex trade, and that Legebokoff was addicted to cocaine and used sex workers to get him the drug.[9]

    • Loren Leslie, 15, murdered on November 27, 2010.[12] Leslie is something of an outlier, as she was far younger than the other victims and allegedly met Mr. Legebokoff online at the website Nexopia. Leslie was legally blind, having one completely blind eye and only 50% vision in the other.[13] She is considered one of the victims in the infamous Highway of Tears murders.[14]

    • Source Wikipedia. (I can't garauntee he legitimacy of it)


    There is more than one Serial Killer on Highway 16, try not to think singular. I would think seasonally.
    If it's the colder
    , and the more moderately warm months it's probably a local doing it. Like Legebokoff.
    During the warm months it's probably an intransient like Fowler.

    Do may people work at, travel to the Smithers airport?
    http://www.cbc.ca/radio/thecurrent/f...ingandmurdered


    ‘They are not just a statistic. They are people. They are little girls.’

    On a warm Saturday night, 16-year-old Ramona Wilson said goodbye to her mother, left her home in Smithers, B.C., and headed out to meet her friends.
    It would be the last time Matilda Wilson would see her youngest child.
    'It just felt like I couldn't go on anymore...[she] was the baby of our family'
    Ramona disappeared on June 11, 1994. Her murder remains unsolved.
    Ten months later, Ramona’s remains would be found in a wooded area near the Smithers airport.

    I think she was hitching a ride from a stranger and had no idea how dangerous it was because at that time there was zero information being circulated by the police or media about missing woman and dead woman turning up on the sides of the hwy the only reason she made it into the media is because she was a child , It is abhorrent to me that devastated family members have to scream and yell do marches and all that to get traction in finding bodies. Her body could have been found much much earlier they chose not to look in a way that was serious . The hwy is just as dangerous today in 2016 as it was in 1969 and still no transportation other than hitching rides .

    Women have been assaulted, gone missing, and been murdered along British Columbia's Highway 16 for decades. Alberta Williams and Ramona Wilson are two women whose only mistake was getting into the wrong vehicle on the Highway of Tears.

    Highway of Tears case began with three teens
    It began with three teenage girls who were killed in the span of six months in 1994: Ramona Wilson, Roxanne Thiara and Alisha (Leah) Germaine. In the fall of 2005, B.C.'s Unsolved Homicide Unit, which also falls under Hulan's command, was asked to examine the three cold cases because RCMP behaviour-science experts -- also known as profilers -- had looked at those files and found some similarities.
    "We reviewed the files with the view of whether we could identify or say the homicides had been committed by the same person, or whether there was a reason to believe there were three separate killers," Hulan said during an interview last week.
    "There was rumour, speculation and media reports in the north suggesting that a serial killer was responsible for these and other files," he explained.
    "So part of our mandate was to determine if there was a serial killer responsible and also trying to identify investigative strategies to move those three files forward."
    Ramona was 16 years old when she vanished June 11, 1994 in Smithers, after telling her mother she was going to meet some friends and attend a dance in a nearby community. The Grade 10 high school student never made it to her friend's house and her body was found near the Smithers airport, within a short distance of Highway 16, in April 1995.
    Roxanne, 15, supported a drug addiction by selling sex in Prince George. She was last seen working the streets on the July long weekend in 1994. Her body was found the following month near Burns Lake along Highway 16.
    Leah Germaine was also 15 and working the streets of Prince George when she disappeared on Dec. 9, 1994. Her body was found a few hours later near an elementary school on the outskirts of Prince George, close to Highway 16.
    Those three cases marked the birth of Project E-Pana, which was named by one of the investigators after the mythological Inuit god Pana, who cared for souls in the afterlife until they were reincarnated. The operation is now an integrated one, including members of the RCMP and Vancouver police.
    But, Hulan said, the officers soon realized that if they were looking for evidence of a possible serial killer, they would have to broaden the scope of their probe beyond three files.

    The Lonely Road of Matty Wilson
    http://www.ucobserver.org/justice/20..._matty_wilson/
    *snippet The first five victims were Aboriginal. Fifteen-year-old Delphine Nikal disappeared in June 1990 as she hitchhiked east from her hometown of Smithers. Four more Native women in their teens -- Ramona Wilson, 15, Roxanne Thiara, 15, Alishia Germaine, 15 and Lana Derrick, 19 -- met with grief during a 16-month stretch starting in June 1994. While police say there's nothing to link the cases, many in northern B.C. believe a serial killer is at large. (Privately some say they hope it's a serial killer: better one killer than six.) Like the missing women of Vancouver's Downtown East Side before the arrest of Robert Pickton, the stories of the missing and murdered Aboriginal women of Highway 16 barely register on the public radar. A national campaign launched last spring by the Native Women's Association of Canada (NWAC) and supported by the United Church hopes to change that. It's called Sisters in Spirit, and it urges the federal government to set up a multi-million-dollar fund to research and document hundreds of missing or murdered Native women. Highway 16 is a prime focus, not only for the cases that are known, but also for suggestions that many more have gone unreported because families don't trust the justice system.
    The best-known missing-woman case on Highway 16 is the most recent. On a June afternoon two years ago, friends drove 25-year-old Nicole Hoar to a popular hitchhiking jump-off on the outskirts of Prince George. A summer tree-planter, Nicole told co-workers she was heading 370 km west to Smithers to pay a surprise visit to her sister and attend a music festival during a week off. She spoke to at least one prospective ride -- a man with children who wasn't driving as far as she wanted to go -- before vanishing. She is the lone white woman among the missing women of Highway 16.
    Nicole's employer reported her missing six days after she was supposed to have returned to work. Police and volunteers mounted a huge search effort believed to be the largest ever in northern B.C. A dozen RCMP officers and 170 volunteers scoured a 24,000-square-km area between Prince George and Smithers, knocking on doors and covering 8,000 km of roadway, ditches, logging roads, hiking trails and campsites. Helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft searched from above.
    After four days the official search was called off. But the huge outpouring of support for the young woman and her family back in Red Deer, Alta., continued for weeks afterwards. Police sifted through more than 1,400 tips. A reward fund grew to $25,000, then $35,000. Art exhibitions and concerts -- even an attempt to set a speedskating world record by friend and 2002 Olympian Steven Elm -- were held in Nicole's benefit. A Web site, www.findnicolehoar.com, still operates.

    So this leads to an assumption that the murderer might be hiring cars at one Airport, and dropping them off at another.

    The chances are that he probably grew up in the area, but doesn't live there any more. Because 30 years is a long time for this to be ongoing. I would also summise that the murderer is not the original killer, but perhaps a sibling that was introduced to it by a Parent and very much so possibly abused themselves. The sad thing about people abused in their youth is that they quite often become the abuser themselves later on in life. I would look back 30 years at people with abusive behavioural offenders all over the past 30 years.

    Also people requesting freedom of information to be released about Highway had their requests denied and information was deleted.

    Q&A: Tim Duncan explains why Highway of Tears emails were allegedly deleted


    The Information and Privacy Commissioner is conducting an investigation

    http://www.cbc.ca/player/play/2668316707/

    Flying in and out, hiring and driving the Highway to an alternate Airport, sounds like the sort of thing a Government Official might do a lot.
    But that's just suposition.

    It seems that the Government has done a lot to cover this up and the murder timeline occurrs every 3 months - occassionly six and in the beginning once a year in October.

    VANCOUVER - A list of the 18 women and girls whose deaths and disappearances are part of the RCMP's investigation of the Highway of Tears in British Columbia. They were either found or last seen near Highway 16 or near Highways 97 and 5:
    Aielah Saric Auger, 14, of Prince George was last seen by her family on Feb. 2, 2006, and her body was found eight days later in a ditch along Highway 16, east of Prince George.
    Tamara Chipman, 22, of Prince Rupert was last seen on Sept. 21, 2006, hitchhiking along Highway 16 near Prince Rupert.
    Nicole Hoar, 25, was from Alberta and was working in the Prince George area as a tree planter. She was last seen hitchhiking to Smithers on Highway 16 on June 21, 2002.
    Lana Derrick, 19, was last seen in October 1995 at a gas station near Terrace. She was a student at Northwest Community College in Terrace.
    Alishia Germaine, 15, of Prince George was found murdered on Dec. 9, 1994.
    Roxanne Thiara, 15, of Quesnel was found dead in August 1994 just off Highway 16 near Burns Lake.
    Ramona Wilson, 16, of Smithers was last seen alive in June 1994 when she was believed be hitchhiking. Her body was found 10 months later.
    Delphine Nikal, 16, of Smithers was last seen in June 1990, when she was hitchhiking from Smithers to her home in Telkwa.
    Alberta Williams, 24, disappeared in August 1989 and her body was found several weeks later near Prince Rupert.
    Shelley-Anne Bascu of Hinton, Alta., was last seen in 1983.
    Maureen Mosie of Kamloops was found dead in May 1981.
    Monica Jack, 12, is the youngest victim. She disappeared in May 1978 while riding her bike near Merritt. Her remains were found in 1996.
    Monica Ignas, 15, was last seen alive in December 1974 and her remains were found five months later.
    Colleen MacMillen, 16 was last seen alive in August 1974, when she left her family home in Lac La Hache, B.C., with a plan to hitchhike to visit a friend. Her remains were found the following month. In October 2012, the RCMP announced DNA evidence led them to believe Bobby Jack Fowler, who died in an Oregon jail in 2006, killed MacMillen.
    Pamela Darlington, 19, of Kamloops was found murdered in a park November of 1973. The RCMP say they suspect Bobby Jack Fowler was responsible for Darlington's disappearance, but they don't have conclusive proof.
    Gale Weys of Clearwater was last seen hitchhiking in October 1973 and her remains were found in April of the following year. The RCMP say Bobby Jack Fowler is also suspected in her death.
    Micheline Pare of Hudson Hope was found dead in 1970.
    Gloria Moody of Williams Lake area was found dead in October 1969.

    Could the Murderer be in a position of power to delete relevant information?

    B.C. government destroyed records on Highway of Tears after request to access them, former staffer says

    http://news.nationalpost.com/news/b-...r-staffer-says

    http://www.slideshare.net/YoussoufHosh/highway-of-tears

    This may might take a full Independent Inquiry that excludes Law services, Transport and Freedom of Inforation Services from being involved. As they are amongst the most outstanding areas where the murderer might be hiding. If you notice in the interview with Tim Duncan, he never named the Supervisor that deleted the files. I can understand that as there is probably an Investigation underway and revealing such information would preventing him from getting a fair trial, or for that matter being able to be charged. Bu the problem here is definitely within the Governmental Departments themselves so should under no circumstances be investigated by their own internal Investigations team.

    I still don't believe that Ramona Wilson was a Victim of this killer. I think she died from tragic misadventure with quite possibly her friends from the Resturaunt she worked at during the Stanley Cup Riot. She might have died at one of her friends place, then taken out to Highway 16 and placed there because of it's reputation. She probably died as a result from injuries obtained from the 3,000 people strong riot. Either sustained by the rioters, or the police themselves.

    I would be interested to know how many of her ex friends are now suffering from a Mental illness. Such as Manic depression, Drug abuse, Alcoholism and delusions.


    VANCOUVER - The RCMP's highest ranking member in British Columbia warned the provincial government last year that cutting the force's budget would hamper its ability to investigate missing and murdered women along the so-called Highway of Tears.
    The Mounties launched their E-PANA task force in 2006 to determine whether a serial killer was operating along the Highway 16 corridor in the province's north. It was eventually assigned 18 cases involving women or girls who vanished or were found dead in the region.

    Thank you for this post Tombo. I also think that he grew up in the area, was abused and has abusive behaviour patterns.i also am of the understanding that other members of his family have abusive behaviour patterns that are documented on the Internet. Possibly cyberstalking, harassment and accusations of being a predator. I believe that he has family ties to Pennsylvania, New Jersey and New York. I see the same family member name connected to these place and Smithers and the warnings about them online.

    I notice that some MSM articles state that Ramona Wilson was hitchhiking and some say that she wasn't actually seen hitchhiking at all. Apparently her family wonder if she was taken right in town somewhere. I wonder if since she was not seen after leaving her home on Railway Avenue that maybe she got into a vehicle at the end of her driveway by someone she knew. Maybe someone from her neighbourhood. Maybe even a neighbour or someone who was once a neighbour?

    I don't know if this article has been posted here yet.
    http://hazlitt.net/feature/death-and...-ramona-wilson
    Railway Avenue just after 9 p.m. It was a hot summer Saturday night in Smithers, a small town in northern British Columbia, and the hazy orange sunset promised another scorcher of a day to follow. Ramona, 16, had spent the evening at home, with her mother and brother, eating takeout lasagna and watching TV. Now she was headed out, wearing pink and white high-tops, to meet some friends at a dance a couple of towns away.
    Two major arteries run through Smithers. The first, the line that was once known as the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway, was pounded into the ground right behind the Wilson home, bearing freight trains from Memphis and Chicago and Detroit across the prairies and over the Rocky Mountains, through the thinly populated B.C. interior, to the port town of Prince Rupert on the coast. The second, shadowing it, is Highway 16, a northern leg of the Trans-Canada officially known as the Yellowhead. It diverges from the main route in southern Manitoba and angles slowly north through Saskatoon, Edmonton, and Jasper before crossing the mountains into B.C. There, it zigzags through the area’s industrial hub, Prince George, and then travels more than 700 kilometres through farmland into deepening forests and rising peaks before dead-ending at the Prince Rupert ferry terminal.
    Winding west from Prince George, Highway 16 links a series of small communities—logging and sawmill towns, mostly, and First Nations villages: Vanderhoof, Fraser Lake, Burns Lake, Houston, Telkwa, Smithers, Moricetown, Hazelton, Terrace and, finally, Prince Rupert. Short hops up and down the highway from town to town are built into the local social calendar—on this night, there were dances and barbecues drawing Smithers residents to Hazelton and Moricetown —and young people without a ride of their own often stick out a thumb to get where they’re going. Odds are, the driver who picks them up and drives them deeper into the evergreen-dense hills won’t even be a stranger.

    Published on Oct 17, 2016 The story of one young woman, Ramona Wilson, who went missing along the highway in 1994 as told by her mother Matilda Wilson. The immersive documentary transports the viewer to Matilda’s home and then on to the notorious highway. More on The Current:
