UCF #104200075 Location: Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada File: The Hemlock Valley Murders Status: UNSOLVED Contributor: Sandra M.
File Number: 104200075 Vancouver, British Columbia: The Hemlock Valley Murders - 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.
The best place we all come together around a common cause, issue or activity to talk about Canada's unsolved cases, mysteries, cold files, disappearances, and more.
Thank you for your help!
