    Missing man’s wife files complaint

    January 17, 2011

    It has been almost two years since Wesley Foulds went missing, and last week his wife filed a formal complaint against the Abbotsford Police, who she claims have “dropped the ball” on the investigation.

    Shelby Bernard is upset that her husband’s truck, found well off the route he should have been taking, and with his blood on the seats, has been repossessed. She thinks the police should have held it as evidence.

    Notes on Wesley's character:

    He was the kind of guy who never missed a day of work.
    He was the kind of uncle who would drop everything for his niece.
    http://www.bclocalnews.com/news/247675471.html

    She said interviews with friends would have discounted the possibility that Foulds committed suicide, or purposely dropped out of his life.
    Bernard said her common-law husband was a dedicated family man, with no drinking or drug problems. She read his journal, and said even when he went through a divorce and lost his family, which was his most emotional time, there was no reference to suicide.
    Silcox could find no sign that Foulds had a private life that his family and friends did not know about.
    http://www.abbynews.com/news/1139820...46965925417366

    Wesley was a very loving, nurturing and caring man. He was a home care worker. He worked with a handicapped gentleman for 10 years. They were almost like brothers, the way they treated each other.
    http://globalnews.ca/news/1181337/vi...s-for-answers/

    While he didn’t mind being near a lake to watch friends and family frolicking, he was apparently “petrified” of large bodies of water and not one to voluntarily visit such sites...
    ...he was far from an outdoors enthusiast, he was not fit, and he suffered from severe asthma and allergies – Weinberger said her brother wasn’t one to even consider hiking on a mountainside trail like the one where his truck was found.
    http://www.mrtimes.com/news/vigil-ju...alive-1.868686

    Bernard believes the person seen in her husband's truck must have been an acquaintance, and could be the person responsible for his disappearance. "Wes wasn't the type that would pick up people, hitchhikers and that. He was very safety-savvy," she said.

    After reviewing everything, here is what I am thinking (all just my opinion/speculation of course):

    I don't believe that there is any evidence strong enough to support a suicide or runaway theory.
    I don't believe that Wesley was with an acquaintance.
    I do believe that Wesley was carjacked with a dangerous weapon, possibly a gun, and forced to drive to or near Mission (the opposite direction of Burnaby, where he was supposed to have his doctor's appointment but never arrived).
    I do believe that the small amount of his blood found in his truck could be consistent with a smaller head wound, I am thinking from an "intimidation" hit to the head - enough to scare but not disable him.
    I do believe that Wesley was still driving the truck with the carjacker as the passenger when the truck was spotted driving too slowly along the highway, and that from there the truck headed North to Hayward lake.
    I do believe (I feel sick typing this) that Wesley was "disposed of" somewhere near where his truck was found, and dumped in the water.
    I don't believe that any calls were erased from Wesley's phone. I think the calls from work were not showing due to the phone being in a remote area with likely poor reception.

    I would be much interested to hear what other sleuths have to say about all this. I know this isn't exactly a hot case, but Wesley's family still very much deserves answers. It is evident that he is very, very loved.
