    "On Tuesday, Sept. 26, the most wanted man in Canadian history, Dennis Melvyn Howe — if he’s still alive — will turn 72.

    The little girl he is accused of murdering, Sharin’ Morningstar Keenan, will never be more than 9. She would have turned 39 this past July 3.

    The Grade 4 pupil at Jesse Ketchum Public School was last seen alive playing in Jean Sibelius Park on Sunday, Jan. 23, 1983 at about 3 or 3:30 p.m. after having spent the day with her mother.

    She was told to be home by 4. She was wearing a watch.

    Nine days later, on Feb. 1, her body was found stuffed in the refrigerator of a nearby rooming house rented by Howe at 482 Brunswick Ave. in Toronto. The family lived several blocks away at 493 Dupont St.

    Retired homicide detective Wayne Oldham, in a secret he kept until 2010, revealed that a dollar bill was found in the girl’s clothing, leading to speculation that the convicted felon from Saskatchewan used money to lure her to his rooming house
    "
    I would love, just love to know what facts the Dad thinks the newspapers suppressed.

    So if correct this article the heads up on which many thanks gave me a new correct fact (hopefully) the witness by the park it seems DID report to the police promptly but they didn't follow up for three or four days. Equally strange is the way they handled things out west if correct not contacting one brother C. for 10 years - but the really strange thing is that they seem in essence to have scared brother E. from making visits to Washington and Montana - I mean he went 12 times and it never occurred to them to follow him down there? BEFORE you interview him?

    Southern Sask. and Manitoba are thinly populated one town in the CBC film where a garage is shown has a little more than a 100 houses, Morse. How much could the police possibly have to do down there (?) I am sure they would be happy to keep an eye and report when E.N. was making one of these trips.

    Not that I necessarily think the trips had anything to do with DMH but of course they might have.

    to add

    I will look up the Sharon Prior case that is interesting that DMH was being compared.

    I do have suspicions that the "Howe" case whoever that really is is linked other cases:- I have one in mind but the other case is too different for me to post on here - hopefully in future when I have more. The Dad's comments confirm my suspicions that there is something very very wrong with how the case appears in media - also I think the case is not so straightforward as the officer in the CBC film who says the case is "solved" suggests it is.

    In his criminal career Howe could barely stay out of trouble for 5 minutes he was in jail almost all the time so it is extremely strange he has never been picked up on anything else since. Something is wrong with some part of the story, the photos, the fingerprints, the DNA something, the "identity" of Howe I really don't know what it is though. Knowing Mr. Caron's thoughts would be ideal if he would be willing to let them be known somehow.

    Large sketch of H. in today's paper.Wondering if female clothing found in the attic at H rooming house would fit H? From the doc. where pic. of his mother is shown, H could look like her if he wanted to- and no one would ask questions, or look at him for too long either imo...

    That is a photo of DMH not a composite not sure why they said composite in the Star.. In fact it it the photo that many felt led everybody down the wrong path. I find it very hard to match up that photo to the only slightly younger photo on the RCMP site. The use of that photo was much criticized because it doesn't look like Howe. Also why use a photo that is so light that lacks so much detail. I would even go far as to question whether it is him in that photo but I don't know the source of the photo - I guess police were satisfied with it - I think I have read it is from PA pen - but then it doesn't look like an official photo to me.

    Does anyone know where the photo was taken? And I am still super interested to know where the photo of Sharin herself that graces the Ridgen CBC (now Vimeo) first page was taken = I had never seen it before that show and again, although it is obviously Sharin, she looks a lot older than the photo that was passed around during the time of the case which looks like a school photo? It is the one the Star used couple of days ago.

    I have never seen this info before, fantastic. I don't understand all of it at the moment. Didn't think there was anything else out there in media a great find. OK adding here is the sentence that is baffling me.

    "At the time fellow officers thought this shol trip was unorthodox but Oldham persisted Off he and Olie flew to Regina Calgary and with side trips to and Weyburn Olie studied hundreds of faces on microfiche He drew a blank and the two men came home empty-handed Unknown In all the wanted man's likeness had been In he Sharin Morningstar Keenan files but had been purged when he was incarcerated in the Saskatchewan Penitentiary at Prince Albert to serve a sentence"

    OK I am adding can someone please explain this. This makes no sense chronologically to state the obvious. Why would there be SMK files at all let alone files to be purged when DMH entered PA pen. He left the Pen jumped parole and came to Toronto for months before he attacked Sharin. Also Leskiew is not a super common name. Wouldn't it be possible to go to Regina find the parents whose name you have and figure out registered births? Also these trips: why not visit Prince Albert that is where the penitentiary is.

    OK sorry reread and the second part I understand what I suggested they do is what they did. But the photo part I still do not understand.

    WARNING LINK DISTURBING.
    This may explain why they may have thought DMH wasin Jamaica..

    http://www.newsamericasnow.com/jamai...hell-on-earth/


    "Equally appalling is the fact that young boys and girls are trafficked from rural Jamaica to work in the urban areas in particular tourist areas to work as prostitutes for the pedophile tourists who come to Jamaica to exploit these kids sexually. This is not exclusive to tourists, but some locals with an appetite for such deviant sexual behavior and the word is spreading in the pedophile underground world that Jamaica is the place to go for sex with minors without the risk of being caught and persecuted"

    Ok if you read the actual newspaper page it is different and makes sense I guess there was some old technology to generate text only from the newspaper but jumbles things up.

    So the files on Howe in Regina were purged when he went to serve his time 10 years in the PA pen. I have no idea why or if that is normal procedure. Can anyone comment?

    My question remains: why did WO take OH to places like Weyburn and Estevan instead of Prince Albert with its very well known pen. Where Howe's picture would have been. It didn't matter because they figured out his name another way but it was time lost and the "unorthodox" method is mysterious in its execution.

    If someone knows how to do a screen grab and link here to the composite of Howe that was shown on the CBC (now Vimeo) show that would be helpful - note it is the composite that allowed someone to recognize Howe.
