While the term Highway of Tears once applied specifically to Highway 16 in BC, the swath of missing women, the majority of them from First Nations communities, extends from Vancouver to Saskatchewan - maybe even to Manitoba and beyond. This thread is for tracing the Tears beyond Highway 16, and for trying to piece together how many victims we are really looking at here - how many different killers, and how many crimes. With so many missing women, we can't afford to ignore unidentified remains further east, etc. As seen in this older thread (link below), some observers have estimated that hundreds of women have disappeared or been killed through this area in the past couple of decades: [ame="http://www.websleuths.com/forums/showthread.php?t=26708"]500 native women who have disappeared or been murdered in the last 20 years - Websleuths Crime Sleuthing Community[/ame] Please discuss information from the rest of Canada's western provinces that might be useful for researching the Highway of Tears here, as well as missing women from the border of BC to Manitoba. Also, collect estimates from various sources as you find them.
