    Canada - St Catharines, Ont, Female skeletal, Apr'12 - Felicia Floriani


    http://storage.canoe.ca/v1/dynamic_r...y=80&size=650x

    Her disappearance was investigated as part of Project Advocate, a police probe into a suspected serial predator attacking sex trade workers in the Hamilton and Halton areas more than 10 years ago.

    Police believed eight attacks going back to 2001 were linked to the same man, who killed 19-year-old prostitute Kimlyn Tolgyes and left her body in a Burlington, Ont., park in 2002. Her killer was never found.

    The task force disbanded after a year, when all leads were exhausted.

    (Noting here so if anyone is sleuthing this multiple murder case, they can find this information)

    Rest in Peace, Felicia

    The girl was last seen in September of 2002.

    Police believe her unburied body had been in the West Lincoln field for the past decade.
    ...
    It is believed she was last seen by friends and relatives in September of 2002 and had not been heard from since, the website states.
    According to previous reports, the man’s last confirmed attack was Sept. 4, 2002, but he may have tried to abduct a 31-year-old woman on March 5, who was not a sex-trade worker.

    The attacks began Jan. 9, 2001, when a 40-year-old prostitute was robbed at gunpoint in Hamilton.
    Wow! This serial attacker sounds like a dangerous man. It is strange that he stopped. I wonder if they have double checked any deaths around that time frame. I also wonder if they had a suspect in mind?

    Here is another article dated 4 June 2012, Hamilton Spec.

    http://www.thespec.com/news/local/ar...-troubled-life

    Felicia Floriani, 15 yrs-old, was to meet a friend on 10 June 2002 at the corner of Upper Paradise Road and Hadeland in Hamilton, but did not show up.

    More than one article states she was seen in September of 2002 - unsure how accurate that is or where it originates. According to the friend Felicia was to meet up with, the police contacted her one week after 10 June 2002 to say she was missing.

    How sad she was discarded in a farmers field, unnoticed for 10 years.

    Brantford Expositor 5 June 2012.

    http://www.brantfordexpositor.ca/201...-from-hamilton

    Felicia's skeletal remains were found in a farmers field that was prone to flooding off Church Road between S Chippewa Road and Concession Road 2, West Lincoln on 19 April 2012.

    An aerial view on Google maps shows a pretty remote area and may explain why the smell of decomposition did not alert anyone.

    The distance from the group home she was staying at in Hamilton (King Street East) is about 50 kms. There are a number of ways to get there - via the QEW and turning off at Grimsby or various secondary roads from Hamilton but none are direct. Makes me wonder why that direction and that area?

    Here is an article dated 1 May 2012 using archives of the Hamilton Spec.

    http://www.thespec.com/news/local/ar...sh-with-killer

    The suspect in the vicious attacks, disappearances and murder in 2001 - 2002 is described as a white male, about 26, 5' 10" tall, slim build, clean shaven - some survivors said he was blond with blue eyes although the most recent said he had red hair and green eyes. In 3 cases he was driving a white sports car.

    Hamilton police had been warning women on the streets about this guy and showing them a composite drawing - kudos to HPS for that.

    Have not had any luck finding a picture of the 2 men arrested as part of Project Advocate. The attacks stopped after these arrests.

    Peter Conka was convicted on charges laid against him and later deported to the Czech Republic.

    John Crouse plead guilty to SA and was incarcerated.

    Want to see how much they may or may not resemble descriptions given by survivors of the assaults and the composite sketch HPD passed around. Can't find that either.

    Bringing over this link matou posted today, on the Cedrika Provencher thread.

    http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/cedrik...dren-1.3364711

    For 10 years, Angela and John Floriani held on to the hope that their daughter Felicia would come home after she went missing. The troubled 15-year-old girl ran away from home in 2002.
    Felicia Floriani.

    "You keep hoping that one day … the phone's going to ring or someone's going to knock on the door and it's going to be her," Angela Floriani, Felicia's stepmother, said.

    "Every time you hear on the TV or the news that they found somebody's remains, your heart stops," she said.

    Floriani vividly remembers the day in 2012 when police came to their Hamilton-area home and confirmed their worst fears.

    "[They said] 'there's no easy way to say this,'" Floriani recalled. "I just remember both of us … howling and holding on to each other and crying."

    Police had found Felicia's remains in a field and said she had likely been dead for most of the decade she was missing.

    But to the Florianis, she died the day the police told them the news, Angela said, and many people didn't understand the extent of their grief.

    "Everybody's kind of like, 'Well at least you know and you can move on.' But everybody forgets that [to us] our daughter just died," she said. "Up until then there was always hope."
