Condition: VANISHED
Location: Boise, Idaho, USA, United States
File Name: Marital Turmoil
Author/Contributor: Joshua S.

Jeramy Burt

USA: Burt was having some serious marital issues at the time of his disappearance in US.

Burt was in the process of divorcing his wife and mother of his only child, after he was caught cheating on her with his attorney, Jeannie Braun. However, close family members, his ex-wife included, do not believe he ran away from his problems.

Every friend and family member stated Burt simply loved and cherished his young daughter too much to simply abandon her and never make contact with her ever again. It was also believed that he was dealing with his marital turmoil in an appropriate and mature manner.

However, on the night of his disappearance, Burt's wife received a text message from her husband's phone that stated he would be starting a fresh new life and was going to disappear. It was shortly after receiving the message, that the wife realized her husband had taken her car rather than his own.

The car was found burned in the middle of the desert miles and miles away from the residents he shared with his wife. No further clues were discovered when searching the car.

Burt's mistress, Jeannie Braun is considered a person of interest. Apparently, during some of the meetings the two had, Burt recorded her admitting to committing illegal acts under her practice.

The family believes Burt's disappearance is a matter of foul play, but there are still several people that believe Burt did indeed abandon his old life.

Missing Since: February 11, 2007 - Boise, Idaho, United States.

Later, two truckers reported having seen Asha on the night of her disappearance. They both recounted having seen Asha walking down a highway a mile north of her apartment

Her backpack (with her name and number scratched off) was found buried and inside two garbage bags; it was found 26-miles in the opposite direction where she had last been seen walking.

No one knows what prompted Asha to leave her house on her own accord, if in fact that was even the case, or who may have taken her.

File Name: The Case of Jacob Wetterling

Jacob Wetterling

USA: The case of Jacob Wetterling is as frustrating as it is important. Missing since October 22, 1989 in St. Joseph, Minnesota, US

It was an average autumn night in middle United States when 11 year-old Jacob Wetterling, his brother, and friend rode their bikes home after renting a video-tape from a local convenience store.

On their way home an unidentified man wearing a mask emerged from the woods, without any apparent vehicle of transportation. Holding a shotgun he ordered the three boys to lie down, once he told them not to look back he took Jacob into the woods with him, and directed the other two boys to continue home.

With the lack of any identifying features on the abductor, the search for Jacob Wetterling has been extremely difficult.

Investigators have been looking at a string of child molestation and kidnappings that had been reported around the time and area of Wetterling'snmother began the Jacob Wetterling foundation and it has been monumental in bringing a larger focus to child abduction cases.



UPDATE:

A major breakthrough, and the only substantive breakthough for the last 25 years, happened November of 2015 in which detectives on the case named a 'person of interest' in the Jacob Wetterling case. Apparently, Danny Heinrich was questioned as early as 1990 in relation to Wetterling's disappearance.On the case's 25th anniversery police gave Heinrich's property another look and discovered a very large amount of child pornography within his home. While police have stated that Wetterling was not one of the boys in any of Heinrich's 40+ binders of photographs, they did not confirm or deny Wetterling's appearance in any of Heinrich's videotapes.

While being held on the child pornography charges, Heinrich still maintains his innocence in Wetterling's disappearance, and police stress that Heinrich is simply a person of interest, and not necessarily a suspect.

Still Heinrich's appearance strongly resembles that of a police sketch of a man who had kidnapped another boy in the late 1980s, relatively close to the location of Wetterling's disappearance; that abduction has always been strongly linked to that of Wetterling's.

File Name: The Murder of Pamela Werner
Author/Contributor: Xiang J.J.

Pamela Werner

File Number: 104200016

Asia: This is a case that, even after over 80 years, is still attracting much (online) attention both in China or (Hong Kong) and abroad. Pamela Werner was a 19-year-old British girl who was brutally murdered on her way home from a skating rink in Beijing in January 1937.

Pamela Werner was the adopted daughter of author and former United Kingdom or UK or England or British consul of Fuzhou, Edward Werner; her adoptive mother had previously died. She was raised in Beijing, and in the winter of 1937, she had returned from her Grammar School in Tianjin.

On January 7th, Pamela was going out to have tea with a friend and afterward cycled to the French skating rink. She left the rink around 7.30 at night, when it was already very dark, and did not return home.

The following day, her body was found in a ditch at what was then called the Fox Tower.

Pamela Werner and her father Edward Werner. Pamela was not just found murdered. She was also found to have been sexually violated and was left seriously disfigured and mutilated.

Shockingly, her body was found without the heart, which had been taken from the severed body.

Besides the brutality of the murder, there are many other reasons why Werner's case has become so well-known. Such a horrific murder of a British girl in China was unheard of, and the setting of a pre-communist Beijing in a China that was on the verge of the outbreak of the Second Sino-Japanese War made her case all the more intriguing to many, specially because investigations of the case offer a glimpse into the 1930s foreign community of old Peking.

Although Pamela's father was obsessed with the investigation into his daughter's murder, the case was never solved. Among the rumored suspects were some eccentric expats, vengeful Japanese soldiers, and even senior diplomats from the British embassy.

In 2011, Paul French published the book Midnight in Peking: How the Murder of a Young Englishwoman Haunted the Last Days of Old China, which sparked a new wave of interest in the case. The newest work on the Pamela Werner mystery is that of retired police officer G.D. Sheppard, Life & Death In Old Peking: The Murder of Pamela Werner, which contains new research material (will appear under new publisher somewhere this year).

File Name: Nida Blanca's Shocking Death
Author/Contributor: Fernandez D.

Nida Blanca

Philippines: Dorothy Jones, more commonly known as Nida Blanca, dreamt of becoming a movie star. Early on in her life, she was able to fulfill that dream when, at 14 years old, she starred in numerous motion pictures by LVN Productions. She was paired up with the hottest male actors that time, including Nestor de Villa and Comedy King Dolphy.

Blanca made over than 200 films during her lifetime, a career that extended all the way to her golden years.

On November 7, 2001, Blanca's body was found in her car, which was at a parking lot in San Juan. Her body bore 13 stab wounds. An alleged gun-for-hire named Philip Medel came forward days after, confessing he was hired by a middleman named Mike Martinez to kill the screen icon. Medel later broke down and recanted his statement, saying that he was tortured into a false confession.

Blanca's second husband was an American actor named Rod Lauren Strunk. The pair looked happy at face value, but family and friends were shocked when Strunk was eventually implicated for his wife's murder. A popular but still unproven theory was that Blanca was a battered wife who disinherited Strunk from her will. This was contested by several friends who said they would have known if she was being domestically abused. Strunk returned to the United States to avoid facing trial. He jumped off a building in 2007.

More theories about Blanca's death surfaced. According to one, the actress was reportedly involved with a politician who entrusted her money. Another theory was that Blanca had knowledge of an illegal money-lending business at a casino.

Aarushi-Hemraj

The 2008 double murder of a teenage Noida girl and a house help is one of India's murkiest murder mysteries.

The case grabbed headlines as a whodunit story. Aarushi's parents -- Dr Rajesh and Nupur Talwar -- both dentists -- were then looked at as prime suspects and were arrested. Rumour mills have been abuzz with theories of honour killing, the Talwars having extra-martial affairs, wife swapping and more.

According to the Central Bureau of Investigation SP AGL Kaul, who led the second probe team in the case, Rajesh Talwar found his daughter in a compromising position with Hemraj. Aarushi's parents, both currently in jail, however, plead innocence till date.

Flying Tiger Flight 739


Manila: In March 1962, the advent of the Vietnam War, a US fighter plane mysteriously vanished over the Marianas Trench in the Pacific Ocean. United States Army Flying Tiger Flight 739 was on its way to the Philippines from Guam when, without any distress call to air traffic control, it dropped from the radar and was never found again.

A search covering some 144,000 square miles was conducted, involving a search party made up of 1,300 people, 48 aircrafts, and 8 surface vessels. Despite exhaustive efforts using the most sophisticated instruments available, no trace of the plane could be found.

Investigators received reports from an oil tanker that was in the area at the time, about an explosion in the sky that occurred an hour after after the plane's last recorded communication to air traffic control.

This witness account was linked to the missing plane and may have sparked rumors about the plane being accidentally shot down by the U.S. government. However the rumors were never substantiated and the book on what happened to US Army Flying Tiger Flight 739 remains open.

Manila Film Center Tragedy

How many of the 4,000 laborers who worked on the The Manila Film Center died when a scaffolding collapsed in the wee hours of November 17, 1981?

The building was built to host the 1982 Manila International Film Festival. It was an event that would be graced by Hollywood actors and directors and envisioned to make Manila the new Cannes.

Inspired by the Parthenon, the building was designed to house state-of-the-art theaters, archives, and laboratories. Thousands of construction workers labored in three shifts daily in order to meet the three-month deadline given to complete the structure.Then fatal tragedy struck and claimed the workers lives.

The Philippines government tally was seven deaths, although witnesses and other workers claimed that at least 28 were pulled dead from the rubble. Some media reports estimated 169 dead, but a news blackout instituted after the accident prevented a definite count. Until now, the number of deaths from the tragic accident is debated.

File Name: Lucila Lalu
Author/Contributor: Emmy D.

Chop-chop Lady

Lalu had the grisly distinction of being the original (chop-chop lady).

The year was 1967 and Lalu, an enterprising lady from Pampanga, Philippines was at the top of her game. She had two thriving businesses in Sta. Cruz, Manila that she built from wages as a waitress.

She was 29, an established entrepreneur, the mother of a child she had with her common law partner of seven years, and a lover to a string of boyfriends, according to witnesses. Then one day in May, she disappeared. Days after, chopped off women body parts started appearing in various places in the city.

>A garbage collector found in the trash a pair of legs, cleanly cut in four pieces and wrapped with newspaper sheets dated May 14. A headless torso was also found in a vacant lot along EDSA. Her head was ever found, but her identity was ascertained when her fingerprints matched those of the corpses.

Her lovers were rounded up as possible suspects, but all had alibis on the estimated time of the crime. One boyfriend, a 28-year old dentistry student, confessed to strangling Lalu to death. He retracted his confession a few days later and was eventually released. No other suspect was officially pursued after that and Lalu case remains open to this day.

Andres Bonifacio

Andres Bonifacio and his brother Procopio were sentenced to death after being adjudged guilty of treason by the revolutionary court. Many historians believe that Bonifacio remains have never been found.

A set of bones exhumed in Maragodon, Cavite, Philippines in 1918 were famously proposed as his. Many doubt this, because only one set of bones was found and Bonifacio was supposed to have been buried with his brother.

The same bones were supposedly deposited in the National Library, where they were either lost or destroyed during the Battle for Manila in 1945.

Bubbles Schroeder


The murder of Jacoba "Bubbles" Schroeder, the "good-time-girl" as she was called by the papers, was a murder that caused a sensation in South Africa for years and remains unsolved.

The 18-year-old girl was found strangled in a plantation adjoining the Wanderers Club in Johannesburg.

On August 15 1949, Schroeder was drinking with friends including David Polliack and Hyman Liebman at Polliack’s mansion in Illovo.

According to the Sunday Times an intoxicated Schroeder asked to be taken home and Liebman agreed to take her.

According to evidence presented in court Schroeder became unruly, she had allegedly wanted to drive but Liebman refused because it was a new car.

Thirty hours later she was found dead. After two months, the police arrested Liebman and Polliack.

When the police could not show the Johannesburg Magistrate Court on what charges Polliack was arrested, he was released.

The states case against Liebman also fell apart after it became clear that there was insufficient evidence against him and he was released.

Marielle-Franco

Brazil: In March 2018, Marielle Franco, a prominent Brazilian human rights activist and politician, was murdered in mysterious circumstances.

A champion of the favelas, Rio's slum neighbourhoods, Marielle was also a vocal critic of the city's security forces - both official and unofficial - and the high cost in civilian casualties of their war against Rio's drug gangs.

So who killed her and why? And what does the investigation into her death reveal about the state of Brazil today?

An early theory was that Marielle had been murdered by the security forces themselves. She was a frequent and fearless critic of the police's military-style operations in Rio's favelas that left a trail of death and she even took the risk of naming specific police battalions.

Many feel that Marielle is wielding as much power in death as she did in life. The investigation into her killing by Rio's Public Prosecutor has resulted in the indictment and arrest of some of Rio's most notorious militia leaders and the investigation seems far from over. After an era of impunity, some justice seems to be coming.

Marielle's killers may have been caught but until those who ordered the killing have been identified, questions and suspicions will remain.

Location: United States
File Name: DNA Busts The Bigfoot Myth
Author/Contributor: Alvin D.

Bigfoot

USA: Genetic analysis of hair attributed to Bigfoot found no support for that claim, but hairs linked to the Yeti were determined to belong to a mysterious bear species that may not yet be known to science.

The research, published in the Proceedings of the Royal Society B, marks a rare intersection of peer-reviewed science and cryptozoology, which is the search for, and study of, animals whose existence or survival is disputed or unsubstantiated.

The study solely focused on hair samples, and did not address the footprints, photographs, recorded sounds and other "evidence" purportedly linked to Bigfoot, the Yeti and similar supposedly human-like creatures.

"The whole thrust of the project and this paper is that the 'other evidence' may convince believers, but has not convinced anyone else," lead author Bryan Sykes, professor of human genetics at the University of Oxford, told Discovery News. "It is evidence of a sort, but very poor."

A total of 57 hair samples obtained from museum and individual collections underwent examination, with 36 of the samples selected for genetic analysis based on their provenance or historic interest.

The supposed Bigfoot hairs were found to belong to the following: a raccoon, sheep, American black bear, North American porcupine, wolf, coyote, dog, white-tailed deer, mule deer, horse, cow and human.

Hairs attributed to Russian Almas (aka "wild men") belonged to a brown bear, horse, cow, American black bear, brown bear and a raccoon.

Hairs attributed to an Orang Pendek (aka "short person") belonged to a Malaysian tapir.

Hairs linked to the Yeti belonged to a serow, (a goat antelope), and to the mysterious bear.

"The paper refers to two Himalayan samples attributed to yetis and which turned out to be related to an ancient polar bear," Sykes explained. "This may be the source of the legend in the Himalayas."

He continued, "Since I found two of these bears at either end of the Himalayas, it is reasonable to imagine there are others. We are planning an expedition to find one in the wild and study its behavior."

Based on the Himalayan accounts, the mysterious bear could behave more aggressively toward humans than known indigenous bear species. The hairs were golden-brown and reddish-brown in color.

Rhianna

One of the Strangest Unsolved Mysteries - In October of 1992, 12-year-old Rhianna Barreau was walking to her local mall in South Australia to buy a card for a pen pal in America (USA). She couldn't catch the bus because the drivers were on strike, so her mum agreed she could walk, saying goodbye to her as she went off to work. Witnesses saw Rhianna walking along Highway Drive just before noon. It would be the last time anyone would have seen her.

When Rhianna's mum arrived home in the afternoon, she found the card on the dining room table, a record on the floor, and the TV playing loud in an empty room. She called for her daughter, but nobody replied. She searched, but there was nothing. Frantic, she called police.

Now, almost 29 years later, there are still no answers for Rhianna's mum as to what happened to her daughter. In 2015, a $1 million reward was offered for any credible information, but nobody came forward. Rhianna's mum still lives in the same house, hoping that one day, her daughter might return, or she'll get some answers as to what happened.

Mark Peterson

Australia: Fisherman Mark Peterson was out on the Hawkesbury River in August of 1994 when he felt a strong tug on his fishing net. It was a lovely day, and Mark was convinced he had snagged a decent haul. Unfortunately, what he pulled up from the water was not fish at all, but a heavy piece of steel in the shape of a crucifix. Attached to it were the remains of a person.

Peterson rang the police in shock and they took possession of the remains and the crucifix. Forensic pathologists found that the remains were of a human male, aged between 21 and 41, and that the body had been intentionally arranged on the crucifix. The entirety of the body was wrapped in plastic, including the head, and there was wire wrapped around the head and torso of the victim.

Unfortunately, due to the erosion of fingerprints the man couldn't be identified. Called the Rack Man by the media, he remains a mystery to this day, although the case hasn't been closed by police. Some believe he might be a drug dealer who went missing in 1993, but that is yet to be proven.

Hayat Boumeddiene


The 26-year-old is suspected of helping plan the deadly attacks in Paris between Jan. 7 and 9 2015 that targeted the offices of Charlie Hebdo, a kosher market and a police officer. She was the common-law wife of Amedy Coulibaly, one of the three attackers, but the level of her involvement remains unclear.

What we do know is that the three attackers were killed, and Hayat Boumeddiene escaped. Authorities believe she left Paris just before the attacks, traveled to Turkey and then crossed over into Syria. A month later, ISIS propaganda magazine Dabiq published an alleged interview with Boumeddiene, saying she is now with the group in Syria.

Today, Boumeddiene is one of the most wanted criminals on the planet.

butterfly sanctuary worker found dead in Mexico

A second worker at Mexico's famed monarch butterfly sanctuary has been found murdered, sparking concerns that the defenders of one of Mexico's most emblematic species are being slain with impunity.

The body of Raul Hernandez Romero, a part-time tour guide, was found on Saturday, showing injuries possibly inflicted by a sharp object, according to prosecutors in the western state of Michoacan.

Hernandez had been reported missing on 27 January in the town of Angangueo, in the heart of the federally protected Monarch Butterfly Biosphere Reserve, a Unesco world heritage site some 180km west of Mexico City.

His death came just days after the body of Homero Gomez Gonzalez, who managed the El Rosario monarch butterfly reserve, was discovered floating in a well with a head wound. Gomez Gonzalez had been reported missing two weeks earlier.

Officials in the state of Michoacan said they were unsure if the two deaths were linked or related to the men's work in the butterfly reserve. The state has seen a rising tide of violence in recent years, and the region around the monarch butterfly reserve has been rife with illegal logging, despite a ban imposed to protect the monarchs, which winter in the pine- and fir-covered hills.

Some illegal clearcutting is also carried out to allow for the planting of avocado orchards, one of Mexico's most lucrative crops and an important part of Michoacan's economy.

The deaths again called attention to the disturbing trend in Mexico of environmental defenders being killed as they come into conflict with developers or local crime groups, who often have political and police protection.

Gomez himself was once a logger, but helped lead his community toward a more sustainable economic path, in which they would protect the monarch butterflies and attract tourists instead.

Millions of the butterflies make a 2,000-mile (3,220km) journey each year from Canada to pass the winter in central Mexico's warmer weather, but the population has been declining over recent years.

Toronto, Ontario, Canada: They found Victoria "Tori" Marsbergen's body in a dusty cemetery near the airport in the lawless Mexican city of Ciudad Juarez.

It was reportedly her first visit to the tough border town across the Rio Grande.

Overwhelmed local cops claimed she was battered to death with a rock and died from head trauma.

Tori was last seen in this car bearing New Mexico plates. Tori Marsbergen had not been heard from since April 29, 2019 and her mom, Tammy Daniels, took to social media looking for help. She also filed a missing person report with the El Paso Police.

Daniels wrote on Facebook: "Her phone is off. Her phone is her life and she will never let it just die or turn it off, especially this long. Tori as everyone knows her, has not shown up for work either." Read more »

Italy: In the 1940s, the bandit Salvatore Giuliano styled himself as a Sicilian Robin Hood, stealing from rich landlords and redistributing the spoils to the peasants. He was also a Sicilian nationalist, longing to end Italian rule and give the island its independence. He even wrote President Harry Truman, suggesting that Sicily be made an American state. But by the time World War II was over, Giuliano had shifted his support from the peasants to the Mafia and landowners, who could provide the funds he needed for his guerrilla army. He fought communists and the government alike until his death in 1950, when he was shot by the police while resisting arrest.

Or was he? An investigation by the journalist Tommaso Besozzi eventually revealed that the official version of Giuliano's death was false, as the bandit's cousin and trusted friend Gaspare Pisciotta confessed to betraying Giuliano in exchange for a pardon from the authorities. In this version of events, it was not the police who shot Giuliano, but Pisciotta himself. Curiously, Pisciotta also ended up perishing in mysterious circumstances, dying four years later in a Palermo prison after drinking a poisoned cup of coffee.

Inspired by these strange events, many conspiracy theorists insist that Giuliano faked his own death and fled to the United States. The body in Giuliano's grave, they contend, is much too short. Moreover, Giuliano's mother and sister both fainted when they heard of his death, so his family never actually identified the body. After a decade-long investigation, Giuliano's supposed remains were exhumed in 2012 and DNA tests found a 90 percent chance that the body was his. Still, others are certain that Giuliano still lives, which would make him an impressive 100 years old.

Gary Mathias

USA: Gary Mathias, 25, of Yuba City, California, is the only one of a group of five men who disappeared after buying junk food and snacks at a Chico market on the night of 24 February 1978, but who has not been found.

Their car was found several days later on a winding dirt road high in the Sierra Nevada; why they were there, well off their route home, and why they abandoned a car that was apparently in good working order, is not known.

In June of that year, the remains of three were found in the woods where they had died of exposure; a fourth was found in a trailer 20 miles (32 km) from the car, where he had starved to death after suffering severe frostbite, despite the availability of food, heat, and warmer clothing.

Mathias, too, is believed to have made it to that trailer, but left it at some point.

On May 28th 2011, Madison (Maddy) Scott went missing after a birthday party at Hogsback Lake, 25 miles (40 km) southeast of Vanderhoof, British Columbia.

Jean Virginia Sampare

File Number: 104200049

Gitsegukla, British Columbia, Canada: 18-year-old Jean Virginia Sampare was last seen by her cousin on Highway 16 outside Gitsegukla on 14 October 1971.

He left her alone as he cycled home to get a jacket, and she was gone when he returned.

Her siblings are Anne, Winnie, Sandra, Virginia and Rod, with Sandra being the youngest. She attended high school in Hazelton, British Columbia. When she was older, she worked in a cannery and as a caretaker for her siblings.

She lived with her parents in Gitsegukla. Rod described their parents as very strict and watchful; the children were not allowed to play after 9 and their parents made them work hard.

Sampare was planning to move to Terrace with Rod later in the month that she went missing. Despite the police and local community searching nearby areas for her for the 8 days following her disappearance, their efforts proved unsuccessful.

She has not been seen since.

Shockingly, Sampare's boyfriend also had gone missing shortly before she disappeared. His remains were found after Sampare disappeared. He had drowned in the Skeena River.

Helen Claire Frost

File Number: 104200050

Prince George, BC, Canada: Helen Claire Frost was reported missing by her sister on 15 October 1970, having failed to return home from a walk two days earlier.

Helen Frost was born in Reigate, England on October 17, 1952 to parents Dennis and Daphne Frost. She had an older sister named Sandy. Her father was a green beret in the British Commando Brigade for 12 years, and worked on the docks in London during World War II. In 1956, the family moved to Nanaimo, British Columbia, Canada. After the move, Dennis worked for the city of Nanaimo as a sweeper operator.

Helen's family was stable and her mother and father were married for 67 years, until Dennis died on July 20, 2014. Sandy described them as "good parents despite the head-strong actions of their two rebellious teenage girls."

Helen moved to Prince George, British Columbia in 1969, and Sandy joined her in November of that year. They shared an apartment on the 1600 block of Queensway, along with a woman named Darlene and her infant child. In the spring of 1970, Helen went to a home for unwed mothers in Kamloops where she gave birth to a daughter, Sandra Jeanette, on May 13th of that year. Shortly afterwards, she returned to Prince George and her baby was taken into government custody.

She unsuccessfully tried to regain custody of the baby in the summer of 1970. Sandy recalled that Helen came out of the social worker's office, "just bawling her eyes out, and we never talked about it again."

Sometime between the birth of her child and her disappearance, her relationship with the father of the child, Stefan Grumpner, dissolved. She worked a number of odd jobs while she was in Prince George, including a busser at the Hudson's Bay Company cafeteria, and a gas station painter for a company that operated between Prince George and Prince Rupert.

Helen was single at the time of her disappearance. She had given birth to her daughter, Sandra Jeanette, on May 13, 1970 in Kamloops and moved to Prince George shortly afterwards. Her whereabouts remain unknown.

Adrien McNaughton

File Number: 104200051

Arnprior, Ontario: On June 12, 1972, while on a family fishing trip at Holmes Lake near Calabogie, Ontario, Adrien McNaughton was fishing for about an hour with his father, Murray McNaughton.

Adrien became tired and stopped fishing because his line was tangled. He sat down on a nearby rock, then left the lakeshore to play a short distance away.

He then wandered away from his father, his two older brothers, and a friend of his father into a wooded area. The father after noticing that Adrien was missing, sent Adrien's eldest brother Lee McNaughton to the car to search for him.

When Lee didn't find Adrien a search was sent out to find him. Hours later when Adrien was not found, the police were contacted.

At the time of his disappearance he was wearing a blue nylon parka jacket, an orange striped shirt, brown shorts, and boots with rubber soles.

A massive search was conducted to find McNaughton as thousands of volunteers led by the armed forces searched the area where Adrien had gone missing.

While extensive searching was conducted, no clue to his whereabouts was found.

In 2009 with the use of new digital technology, his parents hoped to find him as an adult. Also in 2009 when Adrien's parents were contacted by the Toronto Sun, his mother declined to be interviewed and referred questions to the police.

A CBC original podcast called Someone Knows Something investigated Adrien McNaughton's disappearance, beginning in 2015. The show is hosted, written and produced by award-winning Canadian filmmaker David Ridgen, and its first episodes were released in March 2016.

On April 23, 2016, as part of the investigation for SKS, five highly trained volunteers conducted a search dive of Holmes Lake, looking for the remains of McNaughton, after four separate cadaver dogs indicated that they were detecting human remains in the area.

A tooth-like object and small piece of rubber that may have belonged to a shoe were uncovered under eight feet of water. The tooth-like object when examined by the police was found not to be human.

Charles Horvath-Allan

File Number: 104200052

Kelowna, British Columbia: Charles Horvath-Allan, 20, disappeared in May 1989 from a campsite. A Canadian-born British national, was hiking across Canada and had plans to meet up with his mother and stepfather in Hong Kong by August 1989, but never made it.

He had been staying at a local hostel, the homes of friends and the Tiny Tent Town Campsite + RV Pk, 3316 Lakeshore Road, V1W 3T1, (near to route 97 in the city) and registered at various student employment agencies during May 1989.

He was last positively identified on the 26 May 1989 cashing a cheque at a bank in Orchard Pk. He was due to meet up with his mother and step-father in Hong Kong for his 21st birthday (and his mother's 40th) in August of that year.

He last contacted his parents by fax on 11 May 1989 but failed to contact them again to enable his mother to purchase his ticket to travel to Hong Kong.

A missing persons listing for Horvath-Allan noted that he left behind his tent and personal belongings and that foul play is suspected.

One source claims that they met Horvath-Allan in May 1989 and allowed him to stay at their home in Kelowna. The same source claims they saw him alive in the Live Wire nightclub in August 1989, but this claim is unverified.

Denise Horvath-Allan telephoned the Kelowna Detachment of the RCMP asking for their help in locating her son as she was anxious as she had not received an expected call from him in May 1989. After several more calls to the RCMP, Denise Horvath-Allan reported Charles missing on the 10 August 1989.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police launched a search of the area inside the campsite in July 1990, after his mother Denise Horvath-Allan advised them that Charles had been camping at Tiny Tent Town. The RCMP retrieved some of Charles' clothing and a shaving bag from a 1989 Tiny Town resident.

In September 1995, the police found a decomposed body in the logging country around Kelowna. Horvath-Allan's family waited for six weeks to be told that the body found was not of their son. At that time, the police hadn't contacted Mrs. Allan or any family member about the find of the dead body; the family were informed via friends and relatives who had seen reports in the local press.

By 2010, the Serious Crime Unit of the RCMP at Kelowna listed Horvath-Allan as deceased. According to the Police, the case is still an open investigation.

Michael Dunahee

File Number: 104200056

Victoria, British Columbia: 29 years ago, on March 24, 1991 Michael Wayne Dunahee, 4, disappeared from a school playground at Blanshard Park Elementary School. His parents were just metres away from him, but no witnesses to his presumed abduction have been identified and no subsequent confirmed sightings of him have been made.

The family arrived at the school around 12:30 pm, and when they got there, Michael asked his mom if he could visit the playground, which was near the field where the football practice was taking place.

Despite having a gut feeling that "something wasn't quite right", his mother allowed him to walk over to the playground by himself, but told him that once he got there, he had to "stay there and wait for Daddy to come". However, when Michael's dad Bruce came to the playground, Michael was not there. Around fifty people began to look for Michael, and his parents immediately notified the police.

Michael's disappearance became one of the largest police investigations in Canadian history, and to this day, over 11,000 tips have been received by the police. The case was a major story for many years, and was reported across Canada and the United States. However, despite a large number of tips and a CAD$100,000 reward, the police still do not have any solid leads in the case.

DEVELOPMENTS

In 2006, reports of a young man who physically resembled Michael and had been living in the Interior of British Columbia since 1991 breathed new life into the case. However, this young man was confirmed by DNA testing not to be Michael.

In early 2009, police in Milwaukee, Wisconsin found a missing person poster of Michael at the home of Vernon Seitz, 62, who had confessed to his psychiatrist that he had murdered a child in 1959 when he was 12 and knew of another child killing. Seitz was later found dead by Milwaukee police, apparently from natural causes.

In 2011, with the 20th anniversary of Michael's disappearance approaching, the police were notified of a man living in Chase, British Columbia who looked like Michael, but DNA testing later confirmed that he was not Michael.

In 2013, a man with the username Canuckels posted on the message boards of the Vancouver Canucks' official website claiming that the police were coming for a DNA test. They had requested a blood sample from a man in Surrey, British Columbia who they believed could possibly be Michael. However, on September 9, the Victoria Police Department stated that the Surrey man was not Michael after DNA testing was done.

This case remains open.

File Name: Is Marilyn Still Alive Somewhere in Canada?
Author/Contributor: Paul E.

Marilyn Bergeron

File Number: 104200058

Saint-Romuald, Quebec: Marilyn Bergeron, 24, left her parents' home around 11 am on 17 February 2008 ostensibly to go for a walk, leaving all her identification at home besides a credit card. She attempted to withdraw money from a nearby ATM, where security camera footage released later showed her looking nervously over her shoulder. Her attempt to withdraw CAD$60 was declined. Five hours later, she used her credit card to buy a cup of coffee in Saint-Romuald, 20 kilometres (12 mi) from her parents' house.

Quebec City police (SPVQ), who continue to investigate, have theorized that Bergeron committed suicide. Her family, who has put up a reward for information leading to the resolution of the case, believes she may have instead met with foul play. Shortly before her disappearance she had moved back to Quebec City from Montreal, where she told her parents, without being specific, that something had happened there and she no longer felt safe living on her own.

Due to this, and the jurisdictional limitations of the SPVQ, the family has repeatedly petitioned the provincial Ministry of Public Security to order the case file transferred to either the Montreal police or the Surete du Quebec, both of whom they feel could make more progress; the request has been refused.

In 2017, a friend who knew Bergeron in Montreal confirmed that she had grown increasingly fearful and reclusive there in the two months before her disappearance. He said he had asked her if she had been raped or witnessed a crime. She said what had happened to her was "worse" than that, but refused to elaborate.

Her family said it was obvious something was deeply troubling her. "Is there light at the end of this tunnel?" she asked her sister, Nathalie, over the phone. She said she did not want to return to Montreal again. But she would not say why. "We tried to get her to talk but she wouldn't talk, she would only cry", Nathalie told the Montreal Gazette a year later.

Her mother Andree Bechard confronted her about what had happened in Montreal that so perturbed her that she had to return home so quickly and leave behind her life there, apparently for good. Marilyn specifically denied that her problems involved drugs, debts, or a relationship. When Andree then asked Marilyn if she had been "assaulted", Marilyn said nothing.

Many sightings of her have been reported since her disappearance, especially in areas of Ontario just outside Quebec, but none have been confirmed.

Condition: BODY FOUND BESIDE HER CAB

File Name: Who Did This?
Author/Contributor: Amanda W.


Mellissa Ivy Chaboyer

File Number: 104200059

Thompson, Manitoba: Mellissa Ivy Chaboyer, 35, the mother of a 17-year-old son, drove for North Star Taxi in Thompson. She had worked part-time as a cab driver for about 20 years and worked full time with developmentally challenged adults.

Shortly before 1 a.m. on Saturday, November 26, 2005 another taxi driver found Ms. Chaboyer's body beside her cab in the City Centre Mall parking lot. An autopsy revealed that she had been stabbed to death.

Hundreds of Thompson residents attended a memorial ceremony in the in the parking lot that afternoon and a vigil was held in the evening.

Thompson's three taxi companies (North Star, Driftwood Nickel and Cliff's) shut down from 3 p.m. until 7 the next morning as drivers attended the vigil. Cabs were parked bumper to bumper around the lot so that attendees could warm up after standing in subzero temperatures. Several restaurants donated coffee.

"She was one of the gentlest drivers in the whole industry," said Jas Gills, manager of North Star Taxi. "If someone didn't have the money, she'd smile and say, 'pay later.' She never would have gotten into a dispute with someone."

Cab driving is riskier than police work. In fact, taxi drivers and police have the highest on-the-job risk of murder, according to a Statistics Canada study of occupation-related homicides from 2000 to 2010.

Of the two, the study says, taxi drivers were twice as likely as police officers to be a victim of homicide while working, which drivers say reflects the fact that they are seen as vulnerable targets.

"It's not a good feeling to have a gun to your head," said Santanu, 41, a cab driver who lives in Rogers Park. He said he's been robbed twice while working the night shift since becoming a licensed cab driver in 2000. "It did shake me up quite a lot for a few weeks."

A 2008 University of Illinois at Chicago survey found that 58.7 percent of Chicago cab drivers said they have been threatened, attacked and subjected to hostile racial comments. During physical attacks inside the cabs, guns were the weapons most used against drivers, followed by knives, according to survey results.

The combination of isolation, picking up strangers and carrying cash makes taxi drivers a target for criminals, crime experts said, particularly during the busy hours of 1 a.m., 2 a.m., and 3 a.m.

No charges have been laid in Mellissa's murder, and the case remains unsolved.

File Name: Body Found In Septic Tank

Unsolved Case Files

File Number: 104200061

Tofield, Alberta, Canada: In 1977, an unidentified murder victim was found in a septic tank thirteen kilometers west of Tofield, Alberta. Authorities suspect he was not from Alberta, but most likely worked as a migrant worker.

The victim was found wearing a blue Levi shirt with snap buttons, a gray t-shirt, blue jeans, and imitation Wallabee shoes. His decomposed body was wrapped in a yellow bed sheet and tied up with a nylon rope. He was found by a local couple scavenging their abandoned property for a septic tank pump.

After seeing his leg bobbing in their old septic tank, they alerted the Tofield Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) detachment. Two officers came to the scene to recover his body, where they spent an hour emptying the 1.8 meter deep septic tank with empty ice cream pails.

A medical examiner in Edmonton determined the victim to be of European Canadian descent. His bones and teeth suggested he suffered from an unspecified illness at five years old. Cause of death was two gunshots to the head and chest, although it was possible there could have been more if any of the bullets did not reach his skeleton.

Before his death, he had been tortured; he'd been beaten, tied up, burned with a small butane torch and cigarettes, and sexually mutilated with farm shears. The sexual mutilation was so severe that the medical examiner took several months to positively identify him as a male. Based on the burn marks on his shirt sleeves, he could have been tied to a bed while tortured. After his death, he had been covered in quicklime, most likely in an attempt to quicken decomposition.

Due to a lack of evidence in the septic tank, the victim was most likely murdered elsewhere and the septic tank was only a dumpsite. His murderers are believed to have known him, due to how viciously he had been killed. It is also suspected they were Tofield locals or were familiar with the area, due to the location of the victim's dumpsite being on a rural property.

The victim's body has been exhumed from his unmarked grave in an Edmonton cemetery twice. In 1979, his remains were flown out to Clyde Snow and Betty Gatliff, Forensic anthropologist and medical illustrator at the Federal Aviation Administration in Oklahoma who had been creating 3D facial composites from skulls since 1967.

Along with creating a facial composite for him, the two could tell by measuring his hands that he was right-handed. Snow believed the victim to be of Indigenous origin and around 35 years old, contradicting the RCMP's belief of him being a European Canadian and between 26 and 32.

The body was exhumed and reconstructed for the second time in 2000 by Cyril Chan, who was with the Edmonton medical examiner's office at the time.

The 1,200 residents of Tofield at the time were horrified to hear of his murder. Farmers checked their own septic tanks for bodies and business owners worried that the victim's murderers could have been regular customers. Many speculated he had been sexually mutilated due to committing a sex crime or being unfaithful in a relationship.

Ed Lammerts, one of the officers who helped recover the body, has since retired. He believes the victim will never be identified, despite sending X-rays of his teeth to 800 Albertan dentists coupled with publishing them in dental magazines, and spending $1,000,000 CAD on the case.

Lisa Marie Young

File Number: 104200062

Nanaimo, British Columbia: Lisa Marie Young, 21-year-old indigenous Canadian, disappeared on June 30, 2002. She had spent the night at a local nightclub and several house parties, before accepting a ride to a fast food restaurant from a man she had just met. Although Young has never been found, her disappearance is being investigated as a homicide.

On the night of June 29, 2002, Young left her parents residence at 11:00 P.M. to go to a nightclub with several friends. Her parents found it strange, as Young had a busy schedule for the week. Young spent the night at a nightclub in Downtown Nanaimo called Jungle (now known as Club 241) where she and several friends celebrated the birthday of their friend, Hulley. After the nightclub closed at 2:30 A.M. on June 30, 2002, one of Young's friends began a conversation with Christopher Adair, who offered them a ride to a house party in southern Nanaimo in his red Jaguar. Despite just meeting him, Young and friends accepted the offer.

The group spent an hour at the first house party before moving onto a second house party. At the second house party, Young became hungry, but could not find anything to eat that party because she was a vegetarian. Adair offered to take her to a nearby sandwich shop, which Young accepted. The last time Young was seen was around 3:00 A.M., where she was leaving the house party with Adair.

Not long after Young left the party, Hulley received a phone call from her. She told him Adair did not take her to a fast food restaurant nor drop her off at home, but instead she was sitting in his car in a driveway and Adair would not let her leave. The final time Young contacted Hulley was at 4:30 A.M., when she sent him a text message reading: "come get me, they won't let me leave."

Young's final phone signals were from the Departure Bay area of Nanaimo. Family members of Young have never heard anything about her cellphone being traced down and do not know what happened to it.

Adair was interviewed two months after Young's disappearance. Young's mother spoke with Adair in a police interrogation room. Prior to the meeting, she was asked to bring pictures of Young as a child, with the hopes of guilt tripping him into confessing.

She asked him of Young's whereabouts, where he responded with: "I can't. I'm sorry, I don't mean to disrespect your family." Authorities refuse to confirm the validity of this conversation. Adair's car belonged to his grandmother, Geraldine "Gerry" Adair, who was a prominent member of the business community in Qualicum Beach, British Columbia. She sold the car during the investigation and threatened to take legal actions if her grandson continued to be implicated in Young's disappearance. She died in 2011.

Hulley, the last person to hear from Young, died on March 25, 2018. While walking along British Columbia Highway 19A with a 27-year-old female friend at 1:00 A.M., he stepped into the northbound lane to retrieve something he had dropped, only to be struck by a car.

In May 2020, 'Where is Lisa?' a new in-depth podcast about Lisa Marie Young's case was published. Lisa's story was the first season of Islandcrime.ca The podcast reached the top 10 True Crime podcasts in Canada on the Apple charts.

Grant Hadwin

File Number: 104200063

Thomas Grant Hadwin (1948 - February 1997) was a Canadian forest engineer. In January 1997, he cut down the Golden Spruce, a landmark tree in British Columbia's Queen Charlotte Islands, as a protest against the logging industry. While facing criminal charges, he disappeared en route to his trial.

Hadwin was born in West Vancouver, British Columbia. His family was active in the logging industry. Hadwin himself became a logger and later became a logging engineer. However, he became increasingly upset with the logging industry's methods and exhibited signs of mental instability. In January 1997, Hadwin went to the Queen Charlotte Islands and purchased a chainsaw. Early on the morning of January 20, 1997, Hadwin made a series of deep cuts in the Golden Spruce. The tree fell two days later.

After cutting down the tree, Hadwin left the islands. He sent a fax to the media and the Haida nation claiming responsibility for the act, saying that he was motivated by "rage and hatred towards university trained professionals and their extremist supporters...." The act outraged people throughout Canada and received extensive media coverage. Hadwin was arrested, ordered to return to the islands to stand trial, and released on bail.

Hadwin's court appearance was scheduled for February 18, 1997, in Masset, British Columbia. Numerous people speculated that Hadwin would be killed before he could stand trial. Hadwin said that he feared for his safety if he were to travel by ferry or plane; he decided to make the trip across Hecate Strait by kayak. On February 11, Hadwin set out from Prince Rupert, British Columbia, but turned back a day later after being caught in a storm. On February 13, Hadwin set out again. The next day, he was spotted north of Prince Rupert, but he failed to appear in court as scheduled. There have been no confirmed sightings of Hadwin since then.

In June 1997, Hadwin's empty kayak and most of his gear were found on an uninhabited island northwest of Prince Rupert. Because Hadwin was known to be an expert in wilderness survival, many believe that he faked his own death and vanished into the wilderness. However, because the winter weather was rough and Hadwin had made many enemies, he may have drowned or been murdered. Hadwin's ultimate fate is unknown.

File Name: Murder of Lindsay Buziak
Author/Contributor: Nicklis J.

Lindsay Elizabeth Buziak

File Number: 104200064

Lindsay Elizabeth Buziak was a Canadian real estate agent who was murdered on a property viewing in Saanich, a suburb of Victoria, British Columbia, on February 2, 2008.

She was born on November 2, 1983 to Jeff Buziak and Evelyn Buziak . She had one sister, Sara. In 2008, Lindsay, 24, was an ambitious Victoria estate agent who had made a promising start to her career and was described by her family, friends and colleagues as being popular and caring. Her boyfriend, Jason Zailo, is part of a prominent and wealthy family that owns a successful real estate business.


In late January 2008, Lindsay Buziak received a call from a woman who told Lindsay that she and her husband were looking urgently for a home to buy, with a budget of $1 million. According to Lindsay, the caller had a foreign accent that she could not place, sounding "a bit Spanish but not really." Lindsay believed that the caller could have been faking an accent in order to conceal her identity. Unnerved by the nature of the call, Lindsay asked the caller how she had got her personal cell phone number, as she was a relatively junior employee. The caller said that a previous client of Lindsay's had passed it on to her.

Lindsay told her boyfriend, Jason Zailo, and her father, Jeff Buziak, about the call and revealed her concerns. Jason encouraged Lindsay to take on the client because of the high commission she would get from the sale, and to reassure her, Jason offered to be outside the property in his car in case anything went wrong. Lindsay found a suitable property and made an appointment with the client to view it at 5:30 p.m. on Saturday, February 2, 2008.

That day, Lindsay and Jason ate a late lunch at a restaurant, paying the bill at 4:24 p.m. They left separately in their own vehicles. It is believed that Lindsay went home to change clothes before the viewing.

She was found lying in a pool of blood in the master bedroom. She was pronounced dead when the paramedics arrived. She had been stabbed multiple times. There were no defensive wounds, indicating that she had probably been initially stabbed from behind and had no inkling of what was about to happen. None of Lindsay's possessions had been stolen and she had not been sexually assaulted.

The identities of the purported clients to whom she was showing the property and who are the prime suspects in her murder remain unknown. As of 2020, her murder remains unsolved.

Anyone with information on the case is asked to call Saanich police at 250-475-4321 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).

Kimberly McAndrew

File Number: 104200065

Halifax, Nova Scotia: On August 12, 1989, 19-year-old Kimberly McAndrew punched the clock at 4:21 p.m., walked out the back door of the Canadian Tire store on Quinpool Road in Halifax and vanished, never to be seen or heard from again.

The events of August 12th, 1989

[The Reader's Digest] 2002:

A happy, well-adjusted Dalhousie University undergrad, Kimberly was working for the summer as a cashier at the store. Her sister, her sister's boyfriend and Kimberly's boyfriend were to pick her up when she finished work at five.

But it was a quiet day at the store, and Kimberly's supervisor told her that she could punch out early. It wouldn't have been unusual for Kimberly to walk home on such a beautiful afternoon. The store was about a 15-minute walk from the apartment where she lived with her two sisters.

When they left to pick her up, Kimberly's sister and friends drove the same route to the store that she would have taken had she walked home. There was no sign of her.

Intelligent, outgoing, well liked at work, Kimberly was her usual upbeat self the day she went missing. Her father, Cyril, a retired RCMP officer, says that she longed to get the silver braces removed from her teeth. She would never have missed the appointment with her dentist that was to have taken place three days after she disappeared.

Possible Sightings (shortly after her shift ended)

[Halifax Regional Police]:

She was last seen at the Gardenia Flower Shop in Penhorn Mall in Dartmouth. She was identified by an employee at the flower shop as having bought a balloon and a rose. At the time of her disappearance, she was wearing pleated, ankle-length navy cotton slacks with slash pockets in front and one pocket in the back, a white, short-sleeved "Esprit" t-shirt with red and green squares, a navy cotton oversize cardigan, and jade green flat-heeled slip-on loafers.

The police have conducted hundreds of interviews, several polygraph tests, and have even followed tips from psychics who contacted the department.

More on this case: Crimestoppers | 2017 CBC news article

Anyone with information on Kimberly's disappearance is asked to contact police at 902-490-5016. Anonymous tips can be sent to Crime Stoppers by calling toll-free 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).

The Rewards for Major Unsolved Crimes Program is offering a cash reward of up to $150,000 for information in Kimberly's disappearance. They can be contacted at 1-888-710-9090.

Susan Tice had recently made the move from Calgary to Toronto, Ontario before she went missing.

Highway of Tears

File Number: 104200074

British Columbia: This highway is one of the most infamous due to the string of murders that occurred between the years of 1969 all the way up until 2011. Occurring between Prince George and Prince Rupert in British Columbia on Highway 16. The police have released a list disclosing that the victims count is currently at nineteen but many speculate that it goes as high as into the forties due to undocumented first nations women being abducted from the highway.

As of now only one of the many murders/ kidnappings has been solved, with Cody Legebokoff was found guilty. Though many speculate that serial killer Bobby Jack Fowler is the man behind most of the killings, police have never been able to prove it.

File Number: 104200075

Vancouver, British Columbia: Three murder victims were discovered in East Vancouver in 1995, Tammy Pipe, Tracy Olajide and Victoria Younker. The women were all prostitutes that had worked in the same area of Vancouver, BC. As well, they had all been murdered the same way and left in the same area. Quickly the police realized they were looking for one serial killer and believed it was Ronald Richard McCauley.

The suspect had a history of assaulting and attacking prostitutes and had previously served time in jail for rape and attempted murder. While he was indefinitely jailed, police still couldn't fully prove it was McCauley.

By 2001, police tested DNA samples that had been collected in 1995 and discovered that they did not match Ronald McCauley. Since then there have been no other suspects.

Gastonia, North Carolina, U.S.: Jamie Fraley told a friend over the phone at 1:30 am 8 April 2008 that a male friend, whom she did not identify, was taking her to the hospital for the third time in 24 hours to seek treatment for a stomach flu. She never arrived to the hospital and was never seen again.

Two days later, her discarded cell phone was found at a nearby intersection, but it did not yield any useful evidence. Two months later, her fiance's father, who lived nearby and had given her one of her rides to the hospital that day, was revealed to have been a person of interest in her disappearance.

This followed his death from heatstroke after he locked himself in the trunk of an ex-girlfriend's car, in what police believe was an attempt to ambush her. In 2015, a prison inmate serving time for murder wrote a letter to a local newspaper confessing to her murder; authorities do not believe it is truthful.

File Name: Help Find Emma Fillipoff
Author/Contributor: Andrew L.

Emma Fillipoff

File Number: 104200080

Victoria, British Columbia: Emma Fillipoff (born January 6, 1986) is a Canadian woman who has been missing since November 28, 2012, vanishing from in front of the Empress Hotel in Victoria, British Columbia, at the age of 26.

Emma Fillipoff was last seen in the immediate vicinity of the Empress Hotel in Victoria between 7:15 pm and 8:00 pm on November 28, 2012. She was observed being interviewed by Victoria police. Her red 1993 Mazda MPV was found in the Chateau Victoria parking lot with almost all her belongings in it, including her passport, library card, digital camera, clothes, a pillow, assorted ornaments, laptop, and recently borrowed library books. It is believed she used the van as storage. She spoke with Chateau Victoria staff at 7:00 am on the morning of her disappearance.

In the days preceding her disappearance, Fillipoff had phoned her mother in Ontario, asking if she could come home. Each time her tone would quickly change and Emma would then ask her mother not to come. On the final call, her mother became aware that Emma had been staying at the Sandy Merriman House, and even though Emma had asked her not to come, she made plans to fly out immediately. Emma's last words to her mom were, "I don't know how I can face you." Emma's mother arrived at Sandy Merriman House at about 11:00 pm on the 28th, three hours after Emma had been last seen by police at the Empress Hotel.

Early on the day of November 28, Fillipoff had been captured on a 7-Eleven store video on Government Street purchasing a pre-paid cell phone. The video showed her hesitating in departing the store, seemingly checking the street outside. She returned to the 7-Eleven to buy a pre-paid credit card for $200. Reportedly, she left the Sandy Merriman House at about 6:00 p.m. that day. Soon after, she hailed a taxi and asked to be taken to the Victoria International Airport; however, she soon exited the taxi for lack of adequate fare, even though she had the $200 prepaid card.

Minutes later, Fillipoff was seen walking barefoot in front of the Empress Hotel. An acquaintance of hers, Dennis Quay, called 9-1-1 to say a woman was in severe distress outside the hotel. Victoria police arrived, took Fillipoff's name, and spent 45 minutes speaking with her. Deciding that she was not a threat to herself or anyone else, they released her. Until a report surfaced in June 2018, no one reported seeing Emma since 8:00 pm that night. Later that evening, police met Fillipoff's mother at Sandy Merriman House; by midnight Emma was classified as a missing person.

Post-disappearance:

Initially the police stated that Fillipoff had last been seen "with friends several blocks away on Burdett Avenue between Blanshard and Quadra streets." Investigators explored more than 200 leads, turning up minimal information. Most evidence indicates she was planning to return home to Ottawa, but there was no proof that she ever left Victoria. The cell phone she bought had never been activated.

Author/Contributor: Charles J.

Andrea Scherpf and Bernd Goricke

File Number: 104200082

Chetwynd, British Columbia: Andrea Scherpf, 23, and Bernd Goricke, 26, were German tourists hitchhiking through Chetwynd. It is believed that the couple met their demise when they took a ride from a man in a 1960's Chevrolet Pickup truck in early October of 1983.

The unidentified driver of the vehicle shot both victims and dumped the bodies 32 kilometers west of Chetwynd. The killer stole the victims' property and dumped a pair of blood-spattered jeans in a nearby trashcan.

Andrea and Bernd's bodies were found approximately 20 miles from where they were picked up in Chetwynd, close to British Columbia Highway 97 and the Pine river. They had each been shot. Their estimated time of death occurred on or near October 3rd, considering Andrea's travelers checks had been used to purchase fuel on October 4th and 5th in Prince George, Quesnel, McLeese Lake, Lac La Hache and 100 Mile House.

A man named Andy Rose was falsely accused of the crimes by a coworker and subsequently served nearly ten years in prison for murders he did not commit. He was exonerated thanks to DNA testing in 1996.

Vance Hill, originally from California, was another suspect who wound up getting arrested for separate charges on October 21st, 1983. After his short prison stay, he moved back to California to be near his estranged wife and children. His wife, Willadeen Hill, told her nephew that Vance confessed to the murders before committing suicide in 1985. The nephew later turned the information into the police. Vance Hill was later exonerated as well, thanks to DNA evidence.

Andrea and Bernd's murders remain unsolved. If you have any information regarding the murders of Andrea Scherpf and Bernd Goricke, please contact the Royal Canadian Mountain Police at +1(250)-788-9221.

Joan

File Number: 104200085

Huntsville, Ontario: Last known to be living on the property of the Laan family touted as a retirement home, Joan Lawrence, 77. was paying over $700 in rent for an uninsulated shack without running water, heat, or electricity. It is believed that Lawrence, a "cat lady," selected this accommodation to keep over 30 cats as pets.

After being reported missing on 25 November 1998, the resulting Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) investigation did not locate Lawrence's body but identified three other residents - John Semple (90), John Crofts (71), and Ralph Grant (70) - as missing. Their pension cheques, however, were still being cashed.

No bodies have been recovered and no one has faced charges in Lawrence's presumed homicide. Read full story »

John Brisker

Uganda, Africa: A 6'5" forward/guard who played for the Toledo Rockets basketball team of the University of Toledo, John Brisker played six seasons in the ABA and NBA as a member of the Pittsburgh Pipers (1969 to 1970), Pittsburgh Condors (1970 to 1972) and Seattle SuperSonics (1972 to 1975). He averaged 20.7 points per game over the course of his ABA/NBA career (26.1 points per game in the ABA, and 11.9 points per game in the NBA).

In 1978, Brisker went missing after he traveled to Uganda. Some rumors claim he went to Uganda as a mercenary; others say he was invited as a guest by Idi Amin. The last confirmed communication from Brisker was in April 1978, after which it has been speculated that he was executed by a firing squad when Amin was removed from power in 1979. He was declared legally dead in 1985 by the King County, Washington (USA) medical examiner.

Surrey, British Columbia: On January 6, 1995, Melanie Carpenter, a 23-year-old woman from Surrey, had received suspicious phone calls from a man feigning interest in a business deal. Later that day, Carpenter was abducted from where she was working alone at a tanning salon in the Fleetwood town centre of Surrey. Carpenter's corpse was found shortly afterwards along an isolated road in a First Nations reserve near Hope, a rural town in British Columbia's Fraser Canyon, 45 kilometers (28 mi) northeast of Chilliwack. Her body had been abandoned in a crevice and concealed by a white blanket.

According to her father, Carpenter was afraid of being abducted. He said he advised her not to put up a struggle if attacked by a man with a weapon, that it was better not to resist and to stay alive. Since her abduction, though, he has had cause to reconsider. "I wish," he said, "I had told her to fight with everything she's got."

The afternoon that Carpenter went missing, a bank security camera recorded a 37-year-old man, Fernand Auger, making a $300 withdrawal using Carpenter's debit card, and the footage was shown on national TV the next day. Auger was a drifter from Ontario, frequently working as a waiter in restaurants, and had been a resident of Calgary, Alberta, until moving to British Columbia days before the murder. In August 1994, Auger had been released from prison in Bowden, Alberta, where he had served a 16-month sentence for armed robbery, and was on parole at the time. Auger quickly became the number one suspect in the abduction, and a warrant was issued for his arrest.

On January 15, 1995 Auger was found dead at a vacant home in High River, Alberta, 55 kilometers (34 mi) south of Calgary, by a real estate agent during a viewing with a client. Auger had committed suicide in a garage on the property by inhaling carbon monoxide fumes from the engine of his car, a Hyundai Excel rented from Calgary.

Condition: FIRST NATIONS TEENAGE MURDERED
Location: Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada
File Name: Murder of Tina Michelle Fontaine
Author/Contributor: Ruth D.

Tina Michelle Fontaine

File Number: 104200095

Winnipeg, Manitoba: Tina Michelle Fontaine, 15, was a First Nations teenage youth who initially went missing multiple times throughout the early month of August 2014, but later found deceased. She was last seen alive accompanying an individual that was solicitating a sex act from her. Fontaine's body was later found at the bottom of the Red River on August 17. Police believe she had died on or around August 10. An autopsy was unable to conclusively determine a cause of death.

The teenager's 2014 death sent shockwaves through the city of Winnipeg and galvanised support for the better protection for indigenous women and girls.

In 2011, when Tina Fontaine was 12, her father was beaten to death; his two assailants were convicted of manslaughter. Fontaine's aunt recalled that her father's violent death deeply affected the girl. "She was very hurt, very lost. That's when she drifted away." Despite being eligible, she did not receive grief counseling following her father's death.

Reports found that she was often unable to access services despite clear indications she needed support.

Manitoba child and youth advocate Daphne Penrose released a long-awaited report into Ms Fontaine's life and how her case had been handled by various provincial agencies.

"Throughout her life, Tina needed an array of services from child and family, education, victim support, law enforcement, health, and mental health systems," Ms Penrose wrote in her 115-page report.

"At times, particularly in the final months of her life, some of these services were unavailable, not easily accessible, or ill-coordinated, which did not provide the supports and interventions she desperately needed."

Ms Penrose's report indicates that Ms Fontaine grew up in stable and loving home on the Sagkeeng First Nation, north-east of Winnipeg, from the age of five, living with her great-aunt.

But following the violent death of her father when she was 12, she began to struggle.

The report found the sadness caused by his sudden death "grew and expanded until it began to manifest in difficulty at school, experimentation with drugs and alcohol, running away, increasing violence, and being sexually exploited by adult men who preyed on her".

But the schoolgirl was never provided with a single counselling session or cultural healing services in the wake of his death, "despite ongoing assessments and recommendations that this was a critical need in her life".

Ms Penrose issued five recommendations to address "a number of gaps across these public systems" highlighted in her report.

Identified early as a suspect, Raymond Joseph Cormier was charged, but in February 2018, a jury acquitted Raymond, who had been charged with second-degree murder in her death.

Under new Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in 2015, the government committed to creating an independent national inquiry into the issue of murders and violence against Indigenous women, which was started in 2017.

Cindy James

File Number: 104200125

Richmond, British Columbia: With the exception of the Pickton case, very few Vancouver-area murders have caught international attention like this one. It was covered by Unsolved Mysteries, a Current Affair and other media publications. Why? Well...

In June 1989, the body of Cindy James, a 44-year-old nurse, was found in the yard of an abandoned house in Richmond. She had been drugged and strangled while her hands and feet had been tied behind her back. The autopsy report indicated she'd died of an overdose of morphine and other drugs, and despite being hogtied, her death was ruled a suicide by the RCMP.

But her family never believed this was a suicide. For more than six years leading up to her murder, James had reported hundreds of harassment incidents to the police and to her family. The specifics of the case are too lengthy to go into detail here, but it's worth reading in full.

The short of it is, soon after leaving her husband in 1981, James started receiving threatening phone calls. The police started to investigate but over the next several months, the harassment increased. She reported prowlers outside her house at night. Windows were smashed and phone cords cut. According to a friend, James claimed bizarre notes were being left on her doorstep, and that she had been attacked several times.

James tried to hide her identity, changing her last name, moving houses, painting her car, etc. But the harassment continued, including the violent attacks. But because there were never any witnesses, the police became suspicious that James was lying about the case, or was withholding important information.

Months before her death, James was found hypothermic in a ditch six miles from her home. She was wearing a man's work boot and glove and had a nylon stocking tied around her neck. She was cut and bruised, yet could not recall how she'd gotten to the ditch. Again, police were suspicious about her story.

Shortly after, a fire was started in her basement; an arson, according to police, that only could only have been started by someone in the house, since there was no evidence of a break-in, James was suspected and she was checked into a psychiatric facility. She checked out 10 weeks later.

On May 25, 1989, she disappeared. Her car was discovered not far from her house, with groceries and a wrapped gift in the backseat. There was blood in the car. Her body was discovered two weeks later in an abandoned house.

James' ex-husband, a psychiatrist, was considered a suspect. So was her boyfriend at the time, who worked as a policeman. Neither were charged. Even after a public inquest where 84 people testified, no arrests were made.

The case remains unsolved.

File Name: Murder of Mary Ann Birmingham
Author/Contributor: Seagal B.

Mary Ann Birmingham

File Number: 104200116

Iqaluit, Nunavut: On May 26, 1986, Mary Ann Birmingham, 15, died at the hands of an unknown assailant who stabbed and mutilated her inside her family's housing unit near the beach.

She's one of the nearly 1,200 missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls whose deaths and unexplained disappearances have provoked a Canada-wide demand for the national MMIW inquiry that the federal government is now preparing for.

Sevigny had flown back that day from Montreal, where her mother, Sarah Birmingham, had taken her little brother, the late Lyta Birmingham, to be treated for leukemia.

"I know now that I was in shock. But the RCMP officer I talked to at the station was very good at helping me out of it and getting me to talk," said Barbara Sevigny, who later became a trauma and grief counselor.

Police, however, were not able to solve the crime. Through the spring and summer of 1986, many Iqaluit residents were haunted by the knowledge that a brutal killer was likely still at large.

The late Fred Coman and the late Lionel Jones, along with other benefactors, put a up a $10,000 reward for information that could solve Mary Ann's murder.

For many months, Nunatsiaq News donated space every week to advertise the reward, but police could not find enough evidence to identify the killer and lay a charge.

In the fall of 1986, an Iqaluit man named Jopie Atsiqtaq murdered Pootoogoo Eyesiak, 21, and his mother, Oolayou Eyesiak, 51, using a kitchen knife.

Police arrested and charged him the next morning. Because the apparent facts were so similar, many Iqaluit residents believed Atsiqtaq was responsible also for the death of Mary Ann Birmingham.

It was Mary Ann's sister, Barbara Sevigny, now a counsellor with the Tungasuvvingat Inuit organization in Ottawa, who found Mary Ann Birmingham's body, some days after the teens's death.

For that reason, Justice David Marshall of the Supreme Court of the Northwest Territories decided that, to give Atsiqtaq a fair trial, a 12-person jury be chosen in Rankin Inlet and flown to Iqaluit.

In early 1988, that jury found Atsiqtaq guilty on two counts of second degree murder.

Marshall sentenced him to life in prison, with no eligibility for parole for 10 years. Atsiqtaq has never received parole and still serves out his sentence at a federal penitentiary.

In a letter to Nunatsiaq News that was never published, but shared with the court and admitted as evidence at trial, Atsiqtaq apologized for killing the mother and son, but emphatically denied any responsibility for Mary Ann's death.

Police later charged him with that crime, but after a preliminary inquiry, a territorial court judge found insufficient evidence to send him to trial.

No other arrests have occurred or suspects named in Mary's murder. Her older sister is active in the MMIW community and assists other families going through a similar process with their own missing or murdered family members. May Mary rest in presence and may her family and community receive justice.

Anyone with information about Birmingham's death can call the RCMP's tip line toll free at 1-844-370-7729, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

At about 10:45 p.m. on May 13, 2009, Mr. Wright (aka Rutu) arrived at a residence on 16 Clarence St., North Preston.

File Name: Murder of Byron Carr

Byron Carr

File No.: 104200120

Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island: Byron Carr was last seen alive at approximately 3:00 am,Friday November 11th. 1988, which was the beginning of a long Remembrance Day week- end. He was found dead in the bedroom of his home, 24 Lapthorn Avenue, Charlottetown, 31 hours later. Time of death was determined to be between 3:00 and 9:00 am, November 11th. Evidence at the scene indicated his death followed a sexual encounter with another male. Carr was strangled, stabbed and the killer left a note saying; "I WILL KILL AGAIN!"

A witness reportedly saw Carr parked talking to a man on a bicycle at Prince and Richmond Streets. Carr pulls away, driving north up Prince Street in the direction of his house. The man on the bike appears to follow. This is the last known sighting of Carr alive. Police believe the cyclist may be his killer.

Carr, a 36-year-old gay teacher who tried to keep his sexuality a secret, was known to cruise the Queen Square area of Charlottetown, a place where other gay men commonly frequented. In the early hours of Friday, Nov. 11, 1988, Carr dropped off a friend in the city's downtown area. He was last seen Friday between 3:30 a.m. and 4 a.m. driving a white Ford Tempo west on Sydney Street approaching Great George Street. Next day Saturday, at 2:30 a.m., residents in his area reported hearing Carr's dog barking, which wasn't common, and a vehicle leaving the area at a high rate of speed.

Police believe the murderer and a second man returned to the house, and this is what the dog was barking at. It was at this time, they believe, the message "I will Kill Again" was written on the wall and Carr was stabbed with a long-handled kitchen knife. Police believe the two men were looking to retrieve items from the house that might identify the killer. A pair of socks was left behind in the kitchen garbage.

Concerned that Carr has not appeared at a family function, relatives went to the house. They find the kitchen door ajar and the dog in his kennel. Carr's body is discovered in his bedroom at 11a.m.

Investigators are interested in speaking to anyone who may have been on city streets at that time. Anyone with any information regarding this crime, no matter how insignificant it may seem, is asked to call the CCPD Hot Line 1 877 566-3952 or PEI Crime Stoppers 1 800 222 TIPS.

You will remain anonymous and Crime Stoppers will pay an award of $2000 to anyone who provides information that will lead to the arrest of the person(s) responsible for the murder of Byron Carr. If anyone has information they are asked to Call the Charlottetown Police, Crime Stoppers or the Byron Carr Hotline 1-887-566-3952.

Mary Emma Hammond

File Number: 104200121

Brantford, Ontario: Mary Emma Hammond (nee Bisenthal) left her townhome unit on Elgin St., around 3:30 a.m. on September 8, 1983. She had the early morning shift at the former Buns Master Bakery, 110 Morton Ave., where she had worked for approximately one year.

Mary declined her husband's offer to drive her to work and left the home alone on the approximately 1.5 km walk.

Walking north on Park Road North (now Wayne Gretzky Parkway) she passed the Massey-Ferguson factory and cut across the field towards the rear of the bakery. Approximately 4:00 a.m. a co-worker called Mary's husband asking why she hadn't arrived at work. Her footprints were followed to the property line at the rear of the bakery and to a point where Mary cut across a field. They then disappeared.

Police were notified. Evidence at the scene includes some items from her lunch, a cup, dish and a half-eaten apple, one of Mary's white sockettes and a small quantity of blood in an area of the field.

At the time of her disappearance Mary Hammond was 25 years old, 5'10", 140 lbs., with long straight reddish-brown hair, brown eyes and a fair complexion.

She was last seen wearing a blue, mauve and red lumber jacket, blue jeans, white Adidas running shoes with a silver stripe and a yellow T-shirt.

Investigators received information that a pickup truck left the rear of the bakery around the time Mary disappeared. The truck was seen parked at the back of the bakery parking lot and later driving through the rear lot. It is described as an older brown pick-up possibly a Ford, with painted bumpers and round headlights. Despite appealing to the public and an exhaustive police investigation, no truck matching that description has ever been found.

Anyone with information about Mary Hammond is to contact the Brantford Police Service at 519-756-7050 or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.

File Name: The Disappearance and Murder of Mindy Tran

Mindy Tran

File Number: 104200122

Kelowna, British Columbia: It's been 26 years since Mindy Tran rode her bike down a quiet Kelowna road and became the victim of one of this city's most infamous and ultimately unsolved crimes.

The eight-year-old had gone out to play just after dinner, Aug. 17, 1994. When she didn't return, a search was called and hundreds of area residents fanned out across the neighbourhood to find who was described by many as a studious and friendly child, according to Capital News archives.

Her body, which showed evidence of strangulation and sexual violation, was ultimately found six weeks later, Oct. 11, 1994, when a man with a divining rod led police to a shallow grave in Mission Creek Regional park.

Last year 2019, 25 years later, a small group of mourners met at the Mindy Tran Memorial, a tree with a sign next to it featuring her school photo and a dedication to the memory of the little girl.

The dedication reads, "See this tree that will grow instead of Mindy."

Roses were laid, kisses were blown and a prayer was said in Tran's memory.

"I want to remember the little girl. I want her to rest in peace," said Shui Lee, a friend of Tran family who helped search for Mindy.

Lee spoke on behalf of her parents who did not attend the ceremony because it was "too painful." However, Lee said that the couple is still grateful for the support of the community in the search for their daughter.

"Every night they are still so angry," said Lee.

For Sandi Giddings, her son lost a best friend all those years ago.

"There's not a day that goes by that we don't think of her," said Giddings, who also helped search for Tran.

Tran's memorial and her tree sits at the Springfield/ Ziprick Road parking lot, close to where she was found.

Shannon Murrin, a neighbour, was charged with her murder, but was acquitted and returned to Newfoundland, joined by one of his jurors, Kathy MacDonald, who later admitted they had fallen in love during the trial.

Since Murrin's acquittal, the murder remains unsolved.

What happened? Who is responsible? What do you think?

Location: Kamloops, British Columbia, Canada
File Name: Disappearance of Edna Bette-Jean Masters
Author/Contributor: Cameron N. P.

Edna Bette-Jean Masters

File Number: 104200126

Kamloops, British Columbia: The Mounties are re-examining a missing-person case in British Columbia that dates back half a century, hoping renewed publicity might spark an old memory that could explain what happened to a 21-month-old toddler who vanished without a trace -- or possibly prompt the missing girl herself, if she is still alive, to come forward.

Edna Bette-Jean Masters disappeared on July 3, 1960, as she was playing at a friend's house in the Red Lake area, west of Kamloops in B.C.'s Interior.

Her disappearance prompted a massive search, but police and search-and-rescue personnel were unable to turn up any sign of her.

Now, investigators plan to use new technology, such as DNA examination and software that digitally ages photographs, in an effort to generate new leads in the case.

In 2013, the case was re-opened by B.C. RCMP after 50 years. Cpl. Cheryl Bush pointed out there has never been any evidence to suggest the girl is dead, raising the possibility Masters, who today would be 62 years old, is out there somewhere.

"There is a possibility that this person is still alive. There was never any evidence found to the contrary," Bush said in 2013.

"If that's the case, then maybe this will spark somebody to ask some questions that they always wondered about their past."

Masters, who was referred to by her middle name, Bette-Jean, was last seen playing with family and friends at a friend's residence.

The young girl, who had curly blonde hair, blue eyes and a fair complexion, was wearing a green bonnet, a pink T-shirt and faded overalls at the time. She had an oval-shaped burn scar on her left arm, which investigators believe would still be there today.

When Masters was reported missing, the surrounding area was searched extensively. RCMP officers used an airplane and a police dog and enlisted the help of volunteers, but they were unable to turn up any trace of Masters.

One of the only leads was a sighting of an unfamiliar 1959 Chevrolet car with Alberta plates that was seen nearby with a man and woman in their late 20s. The car had either "cat eye" or "bat wing" tail lights, the RCMP said.

Investigators have never been able to determine the identities of the couple or whether they were connected to Masters' disappearance.

Masters' mother and two siblings are still alive and still wondering what happened to the young girl, said Bush.

Bush said police hope the attention to the case might prompt someone to remember a detail that could be related, no matter how seemingly insignificant, and contact police.

She said such reviews are routine in historic missing-person cases.

"It's part of our standard practice to review these files, just like any other RCMP detachment in the province, particularly for historical cases that were investigated prior to new technology or investigative techniques," she said.

Bush did not have any details about what specifically the review will involve or how long it might take.

Anyone with information on Bette-Jean's disappearance, no matter how minor the detail, is asked to come forward and contact the rural RCMP at 250-314-1800. To remain anonymous, contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

Bobbie Lynn Moose

File Number: 104200144

On Thursday, October 17th, 2019, at 5:10 pm, Thompson RCMP received a report of a deceased female found at a location near Nelson Road in Thompson, Manitoba. The deceased was identified as Bobbie Lynn Moose from Nisichawayasihk Cree Nation. Her death was determined to be as a result of homicide. Ms. Moose was last seen at Walmart in Thompson on October 1st, 2019. She is described as 29 years old, indigenous, approximately 5' tall, weighing 110lbs and was last seen wearing a plain black winter coat over a grey North Face jacket with red trim and hood, black tights, and black boots.

More than a hundred family, friends and concerned citizens of Thompson gathered on Nelson Road Oct. 23 to remember Bobbie Lynn Lee Moose of Nisichawayasihk Cree Nation (NCN)

"We want to extend our heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of Bobbie," said NCN vice-chief Cheryl Hunter-Moore at the vigil, attended by many friends Moose had come to know from the Thompson Homeless Shelter. "We all know that Bobby was a fearless and courageous woman." Thompson MLA (Member of Legislative Assembly) of Manitoba said that statistics show that Moose was more likely to have her life end in violence because she was Indigenous.

"Indigenous women and girls are four times more likely to experience violence in their lifetime and 2.5 times more likely to have their lives cut short due to violence than non-Indigenous women and girls," she said. "I am not prepared to shrug off Bobbie's loss as an unfortunate random event."

"Somebody knows who took Bobbie's life away," said NDP Churchill-Keewatinook Aski MP-elect Niki Ashton. "We must make sure that people know they must come forward. We know that silence kills. There must be justice for Bobbie and there must also be a call to end the violence against women, against Indigenous women. As a woman, as a member of this community, what happened to Bobby sent a chill down my spine. This makes people here in Thompson feel unsafe. It shouldn't be like that. I appreciate that there's an investigation going on and we must continue to keep the pressure and ensure that that investigation goes as it should but we know that sometimes these investigations might take too long. The pressure must go on. We demand answers and we demand justice for Bobbie Moose, for her family, for NCN and for Thompson, for all our north." via Thompson Citizen

Anyone with information related to her death or her activities between October 1st and October 17th is asked to contact the Thompson RCMP Detachment at 204-677-6909 or submit an anonymous tip at 1 (800) 222-8477 (TIPS).

John Horvath

File Number: 104200143

A property crime escalating into a cold-blooded homicide is a rarity, but the Niagara Regional Police Service believe this is exactly what transpired twenty years ago when victim John Horvath interrupted a break and enter inside his Welland home.

On Jan. 4, 1999, during the early stages of the investigation, police discovered a back door to the Norway Avenue home of Horvath had been physically forced open. Police were initially contacted by concerned neighbours after snow from a recent storm had yet to be shovelled by Horvath.

Upon entry, and what appeared to be a routine break and enter quickly morphed into a homicide investigation when the body of Horvath was located mere steps away, inside the unsecured home at the bottom of stairs that led to the basement of the home.

Police believe the forced entry and homicide occurred two days earlier, on Jan. 2, 1999. Horvath had been beaten to death.

Police believe the suspect(s) were anticipating the Norway Avenue home to be unoccupied. Instead, the person or persons responsible were unexpectedly confronted by the homeowner after forcefully entering the home by unknown means.

Horvath was a former shop teacher from E.L. Crossley Secondary School in Welland. At the time of the murder, Horvath was a retiree in his mid-seventies, living alone in his Norway Avenue home.

Niagara regional police are seeking the public's assistance for any information pertaining to the solvable cold case homicide of Horvath, 20 years after this horrific crime occurred.

"The investigation into the unsolved homicide of Mr. John Horvath remains open and the Niagara Regional Police Service is committed to continuing this investigation in order to identify the person or people responsible," says Staff Sgt. Luigi Greco from the Niagara Regional Police Service major crime unit.

Case Status: UNSOLVED
Condition: BIDY FOUND IN A ROOF WATER TANK
Location: Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
File Name: Creepy: What Happened To Elisa?

Elisa Lam

File Number: 104200146

In 2013, a Canadian student, a Canadian student at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, went missing while traveling in California. She was traveling alone and had scheduled to check out of her hotel on Jan. 31, but once the front desk didn't hear from her, they called the police.

After about a week of searching, the police released a disturbing video that showed Elisa's last known sighting. In the footage, Lam is seen exiting and re-entering the elevator, talking and gesturing in the hallway outside, and sometimes seeming to hide within the elevator, which itself appears to be malfunctioning. The elevator surveillance footage showed Elisa acting strangely, and as the video went viral, many people had several theories for her behavior, from mental illness to paranormal forces.

Maintenance workers at the hotel discovered the body from a water tank atop the Cecil Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles on February 19, 2013 when investigating guest complaints of problems with the water supply. Guests at the hotel also started complaining about "black" and foul-smelling water. Investigators said the cause of death was drowning.

The circumstances of Lam's death, once she was found, also raised questions, especially in light of the Cecil Hotel's history in relation to other notable deaths and murders. Her body was naked with most of her clothes and personal effects floating in the water near her. It took the Los Angeles County Coroner's office four months, after repeated delays, to release the autopsy report, which reports no evidence of physical trauma and states that the manner of death was accidental.

Guests at the Cecil, now re-branded as Stay on Main, sued the hotel over the incident, and Lam's parents filed a separate suit later that year; the latter was dismissed in 2015.

As for why or how Elisa got into the water tank remains a mystery.
