    Mary Jane Hill, 31, Found Dead, 1978

    And last year, thanks to news reports from Prince Rupert, a name surfaced that isn’t on the list – Mary Jane Hill from Kincolith. She was 31 when her body was found in 1978 20 miles east of Prince Rupert on Hwy16. “At this time, police suspect foul play but the incident is still under investigation,” a newspaper story at the time stated. Hill’s daughter, Vicki Hill, now 29, was six months old when her mom was found. She wants police to go back and look at the case in light of the other disappearances and deaths. “We’re aware of that and we’re going to wait until the review is completed to see if it fits in,” said police spokesman of the Hill death.

    The five jurors ruled the cause of death for Mary Jane, whose body was found 21 km east of Prince Rupert, was bronchitis and bronchopneumonia.

    But the one-page document eerily adds: "We then find that the death of Mary Jane Hill as a result of manslaughter."

    There are no further details. Vicki believes that someone left her mother on the highway to die.

    Another similar Alberta case police looked at during the 1981 homicide conference was the murder of Pauline Brazeau, 16, who had moved to Calgary from Yorkton, Sask., in search of a new life for her nine-month-old daughter.

    A month after her move, she and a friend visited a nearby pizza restaurant, departing about 2:30 a.m. But Brazeau returned alone to the restaurant 15 minutes later to retrieve a pair of gloves she left behind.

    Her partially clothed body was found about five hours later on a forestry road near the Jumping Pound Airstrip, about 40 kilometres southwest of Cochrane. She had been stabbed to death.

    Police believed she had either hitchhiked or was picked up by someone after leaving the restaurant.

    Tara Jane White, 18 (deceased), missing from Banff and found in Morley, Alta, 1976



    The other Alberta case probed as having possible links with B.C. cases was that of Tara Jane White, 18, who was last seen July 1, 1976 in Calgary. White was heading to Lake Louise, where she had a summer job as a dining room waitress. She was a second-year science student at the University of Calgary.

    Her skeletal remains were found almost five years later, on Mar. 24, 1981, in a shallow grave in a wooded area about 60 kilometres west of Calgary. Police believe White either accepted a ride to Banff/Lake Louise at the bus depot or she was picked up hitchhiking.
