    "Three files have been added to the Vancouver Police Department’s cold case website.

    The site, launched in April, has received 92,000 visitors and generated 36 tips.

    While the number of tips may not seem like a lot, police say one tip could be all it takes to lead to an arrest.

    Among the victims added to the website are Karen-Lee Taylor, Craig Abrahams, and Melanie Thomson."

    "'That’s not just a bone, it’s a person, we don’t lose track of that': B.C. team excels at giving names back to unidentified bodies


    By Dan Fumano, The Province January 26, 2015 "

    "In recent years, B.C.’s Identification and Disaster Response Unit (IDRU) has attracted attention from agencies outside the province looking to emulate its recent success with missing persons cases and unidentified bodies.

    Cases like Howe’s inspire the IDRU to toil away in the lab and in the field, working to close those files, both old and new.

    The unit’s manager, Bill Inkster, leads a team of investigators who examine and catalogue unidentified human remains in B.C., often matching them up with missing person files, such as Howe’s.

    When a coroner is crouched in the woods brushing dirt off a human femur, Inkster says: “That’s not just a bone, it’s a person, we don’t lose track of that".

    "Map shows unsolved homicides in Metro Vancouver and the Fraser Valley from 2002 to 2013. Do you have information about a case? Search a specific address to find unsolved cases in your area."
    Also on that same page, below the map on the left hand side, there's a scroll-down menu by victim name alphabetically with some info on each case.
