"Karen-Lee Taylor was a bubbly, carefree 19-year-old, and according to her mother, had a wonderful, magnificent smile. She grew up in Ontario, and moved to British Columbia with her mother in 1989. Karen would go on to spend a short period of time with a friend in Alberta, but she eventually returned to the Lower Mainland"


"At 8:00 a.m. the next morning, August 25, Karen’s nude body was discovered, dumped in the laneway of the 3600 block of Pine Crescent.

Karen’s friends and witnesses described the man she met that night as white, in his late 30s to early 40s, six feet tall, weighing over 200 lbs., with light brown, short hair. He was clean-shaven and wearing casual clothing".
