    Canada - Lorraine McNab, 47 & Peter Sopow, 52, Pincher Creek AB, 13 December 1997

    A double homicide in 1997 remains unsolved nearly two decades later.

    18-year old Southern Alberta Double Homicide Case Remains Open

    On December 13th 1997, 52-year-old Peter Sopow and his 47-year-old girlfriend, Lorraine McNab, were shot to death on her acreage just south of Pincher Creek. The victims were ambushed and shot outside and their bodies were then dragged into a horse trailer on the property. The bodies were found in that locked horse trailer just before noon on December 15th.

    Sopow, a 32-year veteran of the RCMP at the time of his death, was the father of two grown children, and a Sergeant with the Fort Macleod detachment.

    McNab was a kindergarten teacher at Canyon School in Pincher Creek and was the mother of two teenaged children. She and Sopow were both divorced and had been dating for about six months. For both of their families, 18-years is a long time to wait and wonder about who took the lives of their loved ones.

    Whoever killed them used a .22-calibre weapon in what police believe was a well-orchestrated crime.

    “I think it was planned, a person lay in wait,” White says.

    “It would require premeditation, the scene examination seems to support that theory.

    “I don’t know if he was the main target or she was or if they were not targeted at all and just came across the crime and were victims.”
