    One reason for posting this one, is because victim was on cell phone just as she was attacked.

    http://www.rcmp-grc.gc.ca/wanted-rec...-sa-as-eng.htm


    " On July 12, 2009, at approximately 3:00 a.m., a woman in her mid 20's was walking alone and talking on her cellular phone on Squirrel Street in Banff, Alberta. She was approached from behind by a male who tapped her on the shoulder. The male smashed her cell phone and suddenly threw her to the ground and sexually assaulted her. She screamed and fought back, scratching at the male’s face and gouging his eyes. He punched her four times in the face and head before running away"




    "The suspect is described as follows in 2009;
    •A white, stocky to “dumpy” build man, with possible facial injuries because the woman managed to poke her attacker in the eyes and scratch his face during the struggle.
    •About 23 to 28 years old;
    •Measuring approximately 5' 7";
    •Short crew-cut style hair with a receding hairline"
    Don't apologize dotr ... never too many posts, and just glad to see you are interested and contributing.

    Thanks for the above info on the above case. Hope they can catch this creep, and good for the victim that she managed to do some damage to the slimeball.

    KARE map of body recovery sites:

    Although there are many, many more missing/murdered women in the Edmonton area, the following 8 victims are those that have been linked by RCMP Project KARE in their search for the Edmonton serial killer. Amber Tuccaro's body was found roughly in the same area east of Leduc, where Edna Bernard and Katie Ballantyne are indicated on the following map.

    Tomorrow I will upload the infomation I have available on the following 8 victims:

    Would the women be more inclined to get into a vehicle with a certain type/looking man than another, or to anyone who stopped?

    All 8 victims were street workers and addicted to cocaine/crack. IMO, they would not likely be deterred by physical appearance, whether the perp was a john, a stranger, or a drug dealer.

    I find it interesting that the first 3 vics are noted to have been addicted to cocaine, and the last 5 victims are noted to have been addicted to crack (the cheaper form of cocaine due to fillers).

    Bernadette Lynda Ahenakew, September 27, 1989

    Bernadette was last seen September 27 1989, and her naked body was found October 25 1989 in a ditch on North Clover Bar Rd, north of Hwy 16 near Sherwood Park, Alberta. No cause of death was determined (although subsequent reports indicate she was strangled), and police think she may have been killed the day before her body was found. Bernadette was 22 years old, Metis, and a mother of three. She was a street worker who worked the area of 104 Avenue and 96 St in Edmonton. She lived with her common-law husband Simon Staddon and had gone out to turn a trick and score them a fix. Another street worker, Crystal Bernard, said she and Bernadette bought cocaine and divided it in the washroom at Tony’s Place restaurant at 111 Avenue and 96 Street. She said Bernadette was taking some of the coke back home, and Crystal last saw her get into a van with a man she described as Italian.

    Debbie Darlene Lake, November 4, 2002

    Debbie was last seen November 4 2002 in Edmonton. Her skull was found April 12 2003 by a man hunting for deer antlers near Miquelon Lake (70 kms southeast of Edmonton near Camrose, Alberta). Bone fragments and hair discovered at the scene were also identified as belonging to Lake, but her body has not been found, and cause of death not determined. Her mother thought Debbie had "gone into hiding". She had left home at 3:00 am to use pay phone; had 4 kids and had reconciled with her husband; they were living in a converted bus behind a house at 105 Av and 78 St, a house known for loud parties.

    Police and her husband Al Brooks said she was involved in the sex trade, but relatives deny it. Brooks said he last saw her at about 2:30 a.m. on Nov. 4, 2002, when she had received a call on her cell phone but her cell went dead for lack of paid minutes. She left their 78 Street home to use a nearby pay phone to return the call. Brooks said he’d expected Lake to return right away since she left both her 10-month-old baby and cigarettes behind; Brooks reported his wife missing the next day. But he also said that Lake, who police reported was a cocaine user, would sometimes take off to party and not return for hours. Her relatives in Saskatchewan admitted she had once been involved with the “wrong crowd” but denied she ever worked as a prostitute. They remembered her as a generous person and loving mother, and her father Myles, 49, said he was haunted by the thoughts that his daughter was likely murdered. “How bad did the poor girl suffer,” he said. “I will probably never know, but it will always be in the back of my mind”. Lake and Brooks broke up several years before her death, her parents took care of the couple’s three children. Then Lake met and had a baby with another man before reuniting with Brooks a few months before she disappeared.

    Monique Pitre, November 24, 2002

    Monique was last seen in late 2002 or possibly January 1 2003 (last confirmed sighting was November 24 2002) . Her frozen body was found January 8, 2003 in a grainfield northeast of Edmonton (south of Twp Rd 540 and Range Rd 222 … 5 kms from where Melissa Munch’s body would be found 4 days later). There was trauma to Monique’s entire body but cause of death has not been released.

    Monique was 30 years old, a street worker and addicted to crack. Her boyfriend Stuart Dittrick said he had last seen her around Nov. 25 when their roommate Dwaine Alberding gave her a ride to the Transit Hotel, 12720 Fort Rd NW in NE Edmonton (127 Av NW and 66 St). Others recall seeing her in Dec 2002. Monique was also known to work near the Cecil Hotel on Jasper Av, and a security guard at the Cecil thought he saw her just after New Year's Day (police were less certain about the reports of the sightings in December and January including the security guard one). Monique was born in Bathurst, NB, then at 5 y.o. lived in Petawawa, Ontario. She was a friend of victim Rachel Quinney.

    Charlene Marie Gauld, April 10, 2005

    Charlene was last seen April 10 2005 in Edmonton. Her burned body was found around 9:00 am April 16 2005 by an oil field worker in a site belonging to Apache Oil at Twp Rd 490 and RR 220 (Hwy 623 and 617). She was 20 years old, born April 20 1984 and was a street worker who was addicted to crack, morphine and dilaudid. Her street name was Roxanne, and she was known to turn tricks primarily around 95 St and 105 Av; last seen between April 8 and 10 near a home she frequented on 107A Av.

    Charlene was reported missing April 13. There were several reported sightings, including by a friend and staff at AADAC (detox/rehab .. Alcohol & Drug Addiction Centre) on 102A Av, and a woman, who later recognized Charlene’s photograph in the newspaper. The woman said she saw her getting into a black pickup truck on the evening of April 10. Due to the fact that Charlene's body was burned, the perp may have had burns to upper body, eyebrows, hair, etc. Charlene was a friend to other victims Samantha Tayleen Berg and Rachel Quinney. Charlene had a daughter in 2002. She had a brother who was 18 years old at the time, and the family had cabin at Okanagan Lake

    Does LE think all these women are victims of the same perp? I wonder if Rachael Quinney was mutilated because she "was known to ripoff johns"?
    Also wondering why poi "allowed" Amber T. to receive a phonecall,could he have changed his voice for the benefit of caller, any chance he is panicking now that his voice was recorded?

    I think the title should be corrected. The article says 20 women since 1983.

    Where is the 83 women coming from?
