Unsolved Case Files

File Number: 104200060

Calgary, Alberta, Canada: Banff Jane Doe was estimated to be between the ages of 24 and 25 when she died approximately a year prior to being found by hikers on April 8th, 1979. She was found in Banff National Park about 300 meters off of the Trans-Canada highway. It's possible that Jane is another victim of the Highway of Tears.

Jane is thought to have been between 5'2 and 5'3 tall. She had prominent, high cheek bones and perfect teeth in her upper jaw (her lower jaw was never recovered). Her hair was thick, long, and either brown or black in color. She also is thought to be Indigenous.

There is little information available in her case and Jane remains unidentified.

If you have any information regarding the death or identity of the Banff Jane Doe, you are encouraged to contact the Medical Examiner in charge of her case at 780-427-4987.

Barbara Jean Maclean and Melissa Rehorek

File Number: 104200071

Calgary, Alberta: February 25th 1977 was the last time Barbara Jean Maclean was seen after getting into an argument with her boyfriend at the Highlander bar after a night out. Witnesses stated that her boyfriend drove off at 2:30 AM leaving Barbara alone where she reportedly was planning to hitch hike to a different party but she never got here.

The next day her body was found by a man walking her dog. After further speculation the police believed that her murder was connected to Melissa Rehorek's who had been murdered the previous year on September 16th. She had last been seen leaving the YMCA where she was planning to hitchhike to the city for the weekend.

The only suspect was Gary McAstocker who was a known sex offender. He committed suicide after he found out that the police wanted to talk to him about the murder of another girl named Tina McPhee.

Loc Token: ucf9c1g0420900941
Case Status: UNSOLVED
Condition: BODY FOUND WRAPPED IN A BLANKET
Location: Calgary, Alberta, Canada
File Name: Murder of Erick Joseph Danis

Erick Joseph Danis

File Number: 104200094

Calgary, Alberta: Nine years after an Airdrie father's death, his family continues to search for the person or people responsible.

Someone on an ATV discovered 37-year-old Erick Joseph Danis' body wrapped in a blanket in a field northeast of Calgary on April 22, 2011.

"He was just fun to be around," said Erick's sister, Manon Danis to Global News. "He had a great sense of humour, he was the joker of the family.

Manon said her brother became addicted to opioids and there would be long periods when she wouldn't hear from him.

"The doctors gave him medication and he got addicted fast, really fast," she said. "He went from doctor to doctor until he got flagged." Manon said she last spoke with her brother in November 2010.

"He called me and he was not making any sense at all. And I said to him, 'Erick, something's wrong with you.'"

Manon wouldn't learn about her brother's death until several months later when his body was discovered.

Investigators said that since Danis' death, they have interviewed several people of interest but have not yet zeroed in on a suspect.

"The RCMP feel that it's a very small circle of people who know exactly what happened to Erick," said Sgt. Jason Zazulak with the RCMP K-Division's serious crimes branch. The cause of death has not been released to the public in order to protect the integrity of the investigation.

"The very specifics of what the cause of death were would possibly be only known to a small number of people, and that could be significant evidence in the case," Zazulak said.

Erick left behind a daughter who was only two years old when he died.

"We didn't even have a celebration of life for Erick, we didn't have a funeral," Manon said. "This little girl is not going to know her father."

Manon is now working to help other families who are battling addiction and hopes that one day soon, Erick's killer will be brought to justice.

"No one deserves to die like that, his family [members] are now the victims, over and over and over."

Anyone with information that might assist police in investigating the circumstances of Erick Danis' death is asked to call the Airdrie RCMP at 403-945-7200 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
