Canada - Daleen Bosse, 26, Saskatoon, Sask, 18 May 2004
Daleen, then 26, was last seen on May 18, 2004 in Saskatoon.
She was close to her daughter Faith, now four, a curly-haired youngster who walked amongst the marchers as they arrived from the Onion Lake First Nation, 350 kilometres north of Saskatoon.
Daleen had started a photography course just before she vanished after going out with some friends. She has not called home since.
She had also recently taken a teacher training course.
Her mother says there was no hint that her daughter would simply walk away from her life.
A $5,000 reward is offered for any information about the young mother, who is approximately five-foot-five and weighed 170 pounds when she disappeared. She wears glasses or contact lenses.
Daleen is just one of about 500 women who have disappeared or been murdered in the last 20 years, says Beverley Jacobs.
That figure is an estimate based on preliminary research and anecdotal evidence, said the president of the Native Women's Association of Canada. She suspects the total is higher.
Most Canadians don't realize the seriousness of the issue, Jacobs said.

Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

Parents Of Missing Woman Take Their Story To Ottawa
The parents of a missing aboriginal woman were in Ottawa on Wednesday, spreading a message of hope and vigilance to politicians and families of other missing aboriginal women.
Two and half years after Daleen Bosse went missing from Saskatoon, her parents, Pauline and Herb Muskego, are still following every tip about the location of their daughter.
"We need to do more for our missing children," Pauline Muskego said in an interview from her hotel near Parliament Hill.
"We're emphasizing that if this was your missing daughter, what would you do? You'd do anything to find your child."

"The trial of a man charged with a 2004 murder in Saskatoon begins this morning.
Douglas Hales is charged with killing Daleen Kay Bosse a decade ago. Bosse, who was married with a young daughter, went missing on the May long weekend.
She was last seen at a Saskatoon nightclub.
Bosse's family had a hard time getting the authorities to take her disappearance seriously.
They eventually hired a private investigator to look for her. Her mother, Pauline Muskego, organized an annual walk from her Onion Lake home to Saskatoon to draw attention to the case"

A couple of links to articles about the on-going trial. This must be so agonizing for the Muskego family and Daleen's husband. What a piece of work Doug Hales is.

Douglas Hales has taken the stand in his first-degree murder trial. Accused of killing 25-year-old Daleen Bosse in May 2004 and offering an indignity to human remains, Hales has pleaded not guilty to both charges.
On Monday, the 36-year old father of one, testified that he killed Bosse but by accident with alcohol after the two partied together the night she disappeared...
“I decided I didn’t want to be charged with murder,” Hales said. He laid Bosse down in a firepit and lit her on fire.

The defence for Douglas Hales spent Monday morning calling for a mistrial, followed by fresh proceedings in his trial on a charge of murdering Daleen Bosse in 2004.
In a situation that both the defence and the Crown have acknowledged is unheard of in Canadian law, Hales' trial happened to be in process right as the Supreme Court delivered a ruling that fundamentally changed rules of evidence that apply to his case...
Crown Prosecutor Matthew Miazga said a mistrial was an extreme remedy only meant for the most pressing of circumstances. He said that since no verdict was delivered, Albright had never actually made a ruling on the reliability of the Mr. Big evidence as presented at trial. As such, he said it was still possible to re-open the trial and simply allow both sides to argue the Hart test on the evidence, with an opportunity to call any new witnesses that might be relevant.

A recent decision by the Supreme Court of Canada regarding undercover police cover stings is not relevant when it comes to the Douglas Hales murder case, a Saskatoon judge ruled Monday.
As a result of his decision, which came after arguments Monday morning by the Crown and defence, there will be no mistrial in the case, as the defence had been seeking. The trial will essentially continue, Justice Gerald Allbright ruled, with the Crown and defence able to submit new evidence if relevant...
The Crown has no plans to call more evidence, court heard following Allbright's decision. The defence likely will, and it will probably be psychiatric evidence.

Douglas Hales, the prime suspect in the murder of Daleen Bosse, has been found guilty. Hales was convicted of second-degree murder Wednesday morning in front of a packed Saskatoon courtroom.
Hales, 36, was also found guilty of offering an indignity to human remains after Bosse’s burned remains were found in a wooded area north of Saskatoon in August 2008, over four years after she was last seen...
With the guilty verdict, Douglas Hales receives an automatic life sentence with no chance of parole for at least 10 years.
