    (wow, of the 2 cases I've linked on so far, Evan and Richard, it seems both coincidentally were killed by intervening / trying to help in an external altercation and shots were fired.)

    Interesting approach. Curious to see if it gets results. Also, tagging for websleuth links to see what we dig up.

    I'm wondering if anyone at WS has reached out to the VPD and invited them to participate in the discussions here? As they may be able to answer some of our questions and whatnot. I've seen other professionals/ex-professionals posting in other threads and it's always so tremendously helpful.

    Lengthy, detailed article about many other cold cases in Vancouver.



    "Part 1: The worst crime - 290 unsolved Lower Mainland murders in the past 12 years (with video)

    In a five-day series, reporters Kim Bolan and Mike Hager look at the victims of these murders, why their cases remain officially open and how family members must cope with lack of closure

    By Kim Bolan and Mike Hager, Vancouver Sun May 10, 2014 8:52 AM"

    "If murder is the worst crime, then solving cases where someone’s life has ended violently and prematurely should be a top priority for law enforcement agencies in Metro Vancouver.

    But a Vancouver Sun investigation has found that over a 12-year period, 290 murders remain unsolved across the Lower Mainland.

    The Sun compiled information for a comprehensive database from 2002 to the end of 2013 from police releases, news archives and court files.

    Canada’s largest murder squad — the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team — worked with The Sun to verify the 178 murders on our list for which IHIT has sole responsibility.

    The Vancouver Police Department has conduct of another 90 unsolved homicide cases in the same time period, including files from West Vancouver and Port Moody that the VPD was contracted to investigate.

    Not surprisingly, most of the unsolved murders took place in Vancouver or Surrey — the two largest cities in the region. Vancouver had 86 cases over the 12-year period, while Surrey had 76.

    But smaller cities in the region also have many unsolved murders. Burnaby has 22. Abbotsford — twice declared the murder capital of Canada at the height of the gang war — has 24.

    The victims in a startling 86 per cent of the unsolved cases were men".

    There is an email contact on the cold case page, perhaps dotr would like to send them a link to the forum??
