    Her disappearance was investigated as part of Project Advocate, a police probe into a suspected serial predator attacking sex trade workers in the Hamilton and Halton areas more than 10 years ago.

    Police believed eight attacks going back to 2001 were linked to the same man, who killed 19-year-old prostitute Kimlyn Tolgyes and left her body in a Burlington, Ont., park in 2002. Her killer was never found.

    The task force disbanded after a year, when all leads were exhausted.

    Wow! This serial attacker sounds like a dangerous man. It is strange that he stopped. I wonder if they have double checked any deaths around that time frame. I also wonder if they had a suspect in mind?

    Here is another article dated 4 June 2012, Hamilton Spec.

    http://www.thespec.com/news/local/article/737662--felicia-floriani-a-short-and-troubled-life

    Felicia Floriani, 15 yrs-old, was to meet a friend on 10 June 2002 at the corner of Upper Paradise Road and Hadeland in Hamilton, but did not show up.

    More than one article states she was seen in September of 2002 - unsure how accurate that is or where it originates. According to the friend Felicia was to meet up with, the police contacted her one week after 10 June 2002 to say she was missing.

    How sad she was discarded in a farmers field, unnoticed for 10 years.

    Brantford Expositor 5 June 2012.

    http://www.brantfordexpositor.ca/2012/06/04/remains-missing-teen-from-hamilton

    Felicia's skeletal remains were found in a farmers field that was prone to flooding off Church Road between S Chippewa Road and Concession Road 2, West Lincoln on 19 April 2012.

    An aerial view on Google maps shows a pretty remote area and may explain why the smell of decomposition did not alert anyone.

    The distance from the group home she was staying at in Hamilton (King Street East) is about 50 kms. There are a number of ways to get there - via the QEW and turning off at Grimsby or various secondary roads from Hamilton but none are direct. Makes me wonder why that direction and that area?

    Here is an article dated 1 May 2012 using archives of the Hamilton Spec.

    http://www.thespec.com/news/local/article/737215--woman-survives-brush-with-killer

    The suspect in the vicious attacks, disappearances and murder in 2001 - 2002 is described as a white male, about 26, 5' 10" tall, slim build, clean shaven - some survivors said he was blond with blue eyes although the most recent said he had red hair and green eyes. In 3 cases he was driving a white sports car.

    Hamilton police had been warning women on the streets about this guy and showing them a composite drawing - kudos to HPS for that.

    Have not had any luck finding a picture of the 2 men arrested as part of Project Advocate. The attacks stopped after these arrests.

    Peter Conka was convicted on charges laid against him and later deported to the Czech Republic.

    John Crouse plead guilty to SA and was incarcerated.

    Want to see how much they may or may not resemble descriptions given by survivors of the assaults and the composite sketch HPD passed around. Can't find that either.
