    Please discuss possible suspects and official POIs here.

    However, PLEASE NOTE, do not accuse anyone of things without proof or reason. You may bring up possible suspects based on convictions and official suspect/POI status, but you must back this up with links to MSM or LE documents.

    We do not sleuth non-suspects, victims or their families here at WS. We do not attack, call people names, or seek to ruin anyone's lives.

    This thread is to be a calm, non-abusive place to discuss theories. It is not a witch hunt.

    Please remember that an accusation of crimes like these can last forever in the public mind and memory.

    Cindy Burk, an Aboriginal woman, went missing on the Highway in 1990 while hitch hiking. She was found beaten and nude, with her throat slit.

    IMO, this is a convicted killer worth looking at twice.

    I thought this might help for us 'Mericuns who are unfamiliar with the area. I kept thinking this could be an actual building. Obviously from references in the article, it is not, but I still wanted to know about the area. But then I live in a place with a town called *Ninety six* and a Road 13....

    "Leibel says he still has his notebooks from those days, which he keeps in his basement, hoping one day to get a phone call, asking him to to testify about the cold case if it gets solved and goes to trial.

    “One day, you hope for the call,” he said."

    Please don't ever let his basement flood. He could have all kinds of information that would be "AHA! Moments" later on.

    "Michalko, 62, a former North Vancouver Mountie, said there is no shortage of theories and rumours about who is behind the murders and disappearances.

    Some say it’s a cop or a long-haul trucker preying on young girls walking along the highway alone, he said.

    “I have seen no evidence of that,” Michalko said of the rumours. “There’s a million places to pull off and go undetected, but not in a tractor-trailer.”


    Yeah, but if it so remote and lightly traveled, this could still be a theory?

    While Willie Pickton seems to have selected his victims from Vancouver's Downtown Eastside, I would not be surprised at all to learn he was responsible for murders on Highway 16 at some point.

    Vancouver Police have issued an “extraordinary” appeal for witnesses in an effort to keep a man suspected in multiple sexual assaults behind bars.

    Martin Daniel Tremblay, 45, was arrested recently on drug charges along with 11 other men in a police operation targeting violent drug gangs in and around the Downtown Eastside.

    Inspector Dean Robinson said that the RCMP also suspects Mr. Tremblay in connection with an investigation of sexual assaults involving teenage Aboriginal girls, including the deaths of Kayla LaLonde, 16, and Martha Jackson Hernandez, 17, in March, 2010. Mr. Tremblay spent 14 months in jail after he pleaded guilty in 2003 to sexual assault cases.


    “We don’t usually tell you about a person’s extensive criminal record or that we suspect their involvement in many unsolved crimes, but this time is different,” said Inspector Robinson. “The only way we can guarantee that he won’t harm more women is if he stays in jail.”

    At least 14 Aboriginal girls have come forward as witnesses, but some are still waiting to speak to investigators, said Mona Woodward, executive director of Aboriginal Front Door Society, a resource centre for aboriginal people downtown. Women’s groups unsuccessfully tried to persuade the courts to classify Mr. Tremblay as a dangerous offender in 2003. Ms. Woodward criticized the police and justice system for releasing Mr. Tremblay without conditions eight years ago.

    Mr. Tremblay was charged with drugging girls, ages 13 to 15, and shooting videos of himself assaulting them while they were unconscious. Some of the girls learned of the assaults during the trial when they were shown still photos from the videos.

    I put Gary Ridgeway on the wrong thread...WhyA was kind enough to comment that LE in Canada have been or are in touch with LE where Ridgeway is being held. I think.

    Hi Just
    Googling the Hwy of Tears I read of a Mountie who was accused of killing several girls of this age. Could it be that is why there has been no resolution, that a member of LE killed these people?

    I'll go find a link.

    I had never heard of this Hwy. But I have a fav TV show from BC, Da Vinci's Inquest which shows the crime world there in a real down to earth way.

    Be back with link after dinner. xox

    scandi, i think what you suggest could be a huge issue in the lack of interest by the rcmp.
    they could be "protecting" one of their own, or even someone with a high profile political background and money (or relative)

    here is a link i found, scandi; not sure if its the one you were thinking of. here is an exert from it:

    "Mr. Landrud states that he witnessed an RCMP officer murder a 16 year old girl in Quesnel B.C., in 1999. He claims the same officer is responsible for 8 other murders. All of these murders remain unsolved. Mr. Landrud additionally states that the RCMP have attempted to murder him. Mr. Landrud continues his quest to have his information investigated by agencies other than the RCMP......"
