Brenda Lee Meyers

Although investigators initially suspected foul play, it wasn't until ten days later, that the autopsy confirmed it was murder

Calgary, Alberta - On the evening of March 19, 2006, Brenda Meyers was closing Madison's Cafe which was located at 3802 Brentwood Road NW.

At approximately 11:35 PM, the Calgary Fire Department received a call of a fire alarm at Madison's Cafe. During the incident, Emergency Services located the body of MEYERS and determined her death to be a homicide.

On the snowy evening of Sunday, March 19th, Meyer's was working the late shift at Madison's. She was closing up the restaurant, as she had done countless times before, but it would not be a normal night for Brenda Meyers. It would never be known as a normal night for anyone who knew her, ever again.

Fire fighters received an alarm around 11:35 pm after a smoke detector trigged an an automated call to the station. Responders raced to Madison's Cafe and Bar to find a small fire had broken out in lower level of the building near the office and storage area. Luckily, the installed sprinkler system had managed to quell the flames and had limited their spread, but as responders continued their search they discovered Brenda's charred body on the basement floor.

What had happened to Brenda? Was it possible this was a horrible accident? The fire team immediately notified Calgary Police so arson and homicide detectives were brought to the scene.

Although investigators initially suspected foul play, it wasn't until ten days later on March 26, that the autopsy confirmed it was murder. Someone had brutally attacked Meyers and left her to die in the same place she had spent so much of her life.

As of 2021, the case remains open and unsolved.

Anyone with information on Meyers death is urged to come forward to police.

Just a few murders in RCMP files for Thompson, MB...Jacob Stokman, 58, who was killed July 27, 2008 in a Cree Road trailer, and Chantel Rikhiem, who was slain on Feb. 2, 2005. Plz look it up.

Many unsolved here in BC. A lot of these crimes happened a long time ago... Most of the victims don't get found, some get found but not right away and evidence is completely lost. Sad!

- Tristan W. (Vancouver, B.C.)

What is really important for these families is to know that as Canadians, is that we remember these murdered or missing people and keep our eyes and ears open.

- Sarah M. (Kamloops, B.C.)

What really happend to Franklin Shoofey, shot and killed outside his Montreal law office on Cherrier St?

I am following up on a possible homicide investigation dating back to June 15, 2005. The body of Angus McLeod Stirling was found in a residence at 5456 Vedder Road. I lost touch with the conclusion of this incident. I was a previous neighbour when I lived in Chilliwack.

In 1982 a man claiming to be a professional race car driver talked his way into NASCAR's Winston 500 and then disappeared, leaving a trail of bounced checks and confused victims in his wake. This is the story of L. W. Wright: NASCAR's Mystery Driver. How about a non-violent sports mystery?

- Bacary T. (Windsor, ON)

Some unsolved crimes here in Thompson still have an investigation going on. We know that sometimes these investigations might take too long but the pressure must go on for justice!

Hi there, I've grown up and lived in south okanagan for many years, I also remember in the North okanagan a young man associated with a VW car ,maybe selling it? Went missing, north of Vernon. The okanagan is a nice place but it attracts many criminal types.

My kids father has gone missing for over a year. We have two children together. It isn't like him to not show up for the kids. His car was found abandoned. His car on and door open in Cheekeye. The police did not search for him then but took his car cause the keys were in it anx it was still running with him no where in sight. His name is Daniel Lee Reoch and he would be 30 now and turning 31 this year in March. He was declared missing January 7th I believe. I just want to put his story out there in hopes we can find some answers. SAR and RCMP and also family friends and the community did a ground search but it snowed so hard.

Another year comes and tina Fontaine case is still unsolved. Senseless murders and violence against indigenous women :(

So sad that still there is no updates on Mary Hammond!! Missing since 80s from Brantford, Ont.

Any information about Angie Hartmann? Angela a high school student has been missing since 1983 from Ottawa. There seems to be very little information available in this case. All I could find is an Ottawa Sun article from 2003, basically the only contact anyone has had with someone involved with Angela is a boyfriend she had briefly in early 1983 in Germany, who gave what information he had to the Doe Network.

- Nicole H. (Ottawa, ON)

It is unbelievable how many unsolved murders in Canada, especially in northern BC. May all R.I.P. They will never be forgotten.

- Lisa V. (Prince Rupert, B.C.)

I hope many of these cases will be solved. Families want justice or closure.

- Anna V. (Vancouver, B.C.)

My nephew has been missing for 12 years now but we have never given up. We are hoping and hoping!!

- Ernest H. (Winnipeg, MB)

I sometimes think that some unsolved cases are not really unsolved. They have been solved but no enough evidence to convict the perpetrator.

- Julie N. (Toronto, ON)

We lost our lovely daughter. Disappeared mysteriously 14 years ago in Calgary. She was 11 years old. This case is still unsolved today. Please keep the word out. We hope that she is somewhere... Alive!
