So living in Canada I, like most people here is aware of a stretch of highway which has been named "The Highway of Tear"

Along this highway they believe over 40, possibly up to 100 women have gone missing or found dead. To date they have put two people in these murders. Neither off them sit well with me.

One of them pleaded not guilty
One admitted he was there but did not kill anyone.

However, since these convictions the killings have not stopped. In fact there was a murder in september a few weeks ago, after a 7 year hiatus of deaths. When there was 2 murders in 2011.

I dont think this has been given enough attention. If both of these men are telling the truth then it could be one person, who has got away with mass amount of murders who takes breaks.

I genuinely believe there is a highly dangerous, yet intelligent serial killer prowling the highway. Keeping in mind he would only be 49 years old.... an age more than capible of still killing.

Driving down the highway is very...odd...its not a nice feeling.

Anyway, have you heard of it? Anyone want to share ideas?


I am only aware of several serial killings in local areas...the Green River killer, and one who dumped bodies along the same coastal areas near or around Atlantic City, New Jersey...among others...sadly...

I am a "sensitive" and dont mention or discuss it casually....but reading your thread this a.m. I immediately (that's how it works with me) got a sense of Indian, Native N.American, Eskimo or Inuit...possibly 2... transient perhaps...but in and out of and back to reservation lands where it's safe...like a viper in a hole...striking then drawing back into it.

My intuition doesn't hit me this fast and fully unless there is something to it.

I pray for the victims, and hope I'm totally wrong...

Just because some of us can stick to our calling card instead of changing up every time doesn't mean you have to hate on us sir!


What is your calling card?

Mine is this :


Blummin heck this thread should be called 'HOW TO BE A SERIAL KILLER!)

Kindest respects... pass me the screwdriver...

It may or not be covering the subject in some reject samples from that 55 gallon drum I found outside the sperm donation center, really confuses the hell out of the crime lab folks. Oh and I randomly mixed dismembered body parts from other victims.

YGPM


Erm...

Concerning the drum of sperm : Best leaving DBcowboy to answer that one once he has recovered from having his nipples pierced.

I heard he had them pierced to keep his trousers up after his mega diet!

Kindest respects

I am all too familiar with this stretch of road, a woman I worked with years ago disappeared while hitch hiking on it. I hitched it myself a few times and worked/travelled throughout the area in the late 90s.
Highway 16 is a LONG highway through some very isolated countryside. Scattered along it's length are many logging roads that go hundreds of kilometers into the wilderness. For someone looking to dispose of bodies, they couldn't ask for better.
Having talked with many people over the years, the general consensus is that there is more than one killer.

My ex-girlfriend’s step father was questioned about it at one point. They found a girl’s body not far from his home. I guess he once beat up a prostitute back in the day. nice chap.

It’s a long stretch of road. One serial killer, Cody Legebeckoff had already worked along there, but was unrelated to the other missing women.

Send three or four cars with solo women in them down that road, but have someone under a blanket in the back with a submachine gun.

Do it until you get whoever is doing this.

If it's a remote highway.... How would that work, for a serial killer? Does he just drive back and forth on it, until he spots a car that has broken down, that is driven by a lone woman? I suppose that would explain the gaps in time. How often do lone women's cars break down on that highway precisely at the time the serial killer is there?

Fascinating, thanks for sharing! Did you get anything about motive or reason?

To answer my own question (2 posts up), and reading from a source not provided by you, OP, it seems that 10 of the 18 women who went missing lived in aboriginal communities and used hitchhiking to get around.

Mystery solved, if you ask me.

I've travelled this stretch my entire life. It is a haunting, desolate and creepy road. Mostly because as soon as you get near to Smithers, BC there are billboards lining the roads with photos of missing girls and their description. It's very constant and disturbing "smack in your face" reminder.

The problem with this stretch is there is no bus system linking one town to the other. The entire highway from Prince Rupert to beyond Smithers is made up of dots of small towns, villages and small cities. Many of the girls missing are Indigenous with limited means of travel, finances and their way of getting from one place to the next is by hitchhiking.

Keep in mind that there are few high equipped hospitals and if you need surgery but live in Prince Rupert, Terrace, Kitimat or any other small town you must travel to Prince George. Many people rely on a hospital feeder bus that if I recall correctly, travels one day out of the week to deliver patients. Even when the patient gets to the hospital their surgery may not be scheduled and you either sit in the hospital waiting for days for your time to be called or you stay with friends or have to put out money for a hotel. Many people simply cannot afford that time or money. So, you can imagine how tempting hitchhiking may be.

The next gas station from Jasper is 8 hours away in Prince George. You are surrounded by dense forest on either side. From Terrace to Prince Rupert it is 2 hours away and you are on a stretch of highway with nothing in between. Two examples of the isolations and opportunities for evil minded people to harm another, and to dispose of bodies/evidence.

I believe there are multiple serial killers. Also, the police do NOT take Indigenous claims of missing loved ones seriously. There are many videos one can find on YouTube. It is sickening at how the police turn a blind eye.

The forests in these parts are overgrown, with fallen trees, dense shrubs, variety of evergreens and deciduous trees, filled with swampy waters, lakes, mountains, side trails, old logging roads, old roads, the ocean. One could hide a body anywhere they wish and it will never see the light of day. But, it is absolutely gorgeous having said all that.

There are upwards to 1,000 women missing. Many are Indigenous and certainly because of the hitchhiking, I agree. However, there are a number of young white females that have gone missing and their cases tend to be looked into more seriously. I think it's more than one killer due to the span of time this has been occurring. The most recent killer was found, a young man, I believe 18 or 19. Caught red-handed. He is far too young to have been responsible for previous cases.

Theories are that it's one serial killer with an accomplice, and that perhaps the accomplice has now taken over. But, it is such a remote area and it is a trucking stretch haven and many of the people that live in these areas are transient and live there because of the isolation this region affords, and not wanting to associate with other people - so there are opportunities galore for any number of people to be the killer/s.

The sheer amount of Native American girls that go missing in my end of Canada has lead some to the same conclusion.

Some one is using highways around Winnipeg as a hunting ground for young vulnerable girls. The sheer amount that just go missing without a trace over here is staggering. There have even been some brutal mutilations.

This law just contains some numbers

So that solves the mystery for you? How so care to elaborate?
Yes hitch hiking is a stupid thing to do in my opinion but it shouldn’t carry a death sentence.

I lived in Pig's Gorge for a number of years. It was sickening to hear that Greyhound was pulling out of Northern B.C. Like literally: "There's a crazy serial killer out here, and you're just abandoning us?"
I kind of worry that copycat killers came to see that area as a "free for all zone."

The highway that's referred to by that term is the Yellowhead highway, #16. Eastern end is Portage la Prairie, it heads up through Edmonton, Prince George, and eventually to Prince Rupert on the coast.

For many in this area, hitchhiking is their only option. There is no such thing as public transit. The only bus service was the Greyhound, (until they pulled out because they weren't making enough money.) The nearest doctor or hospital, or even post-secondary school may be a 3 or maybe 5 hour drive down the highway.
So tell me. If you were in the middle of nowhere, and your only hope to access an education or medical treatment, and your choice is either hitchhike, or try and survive with nothing in isolation, what would you do?

Exactly, a serial killer's smorgasbord. I agree a 100%. I would move back to Northern BC in a moment but it really suffers for lack of services and things we take for granted in larger cities.

Many places (for those who don't know) have a specialist fly in once a month to look at those who have special needs, i.e.: psychiatrist, ENT, etc. Imagine needing mental health services and you can't shop around, or get the meds you need or have to wait a full month before your child can see a skin specialist.

Then remove a basic service like Greyhound and it really amounts to desperate people needing to resort to desperate measures.

This whole government concept of where money from taxes is spent is disgusting.

The ease of finding victims in long stretches of countryside . Motive? Power over something in their past. And I see more than 1. Maybe 2 together...or 2, 1 a copycat.

Long distance driving....either back and forth between locales or long distance driver/hauler. A loner or quiet person. Anger...won't stop..?

Disclaimer: I have traits of sensitivity from mother's side, grandfather, g-grandfather, both sides and Cherokee heritage. I hope I'm entirely wrong about things...but Ive always been sensitive to people, objects and places. Ill move in a restaurant if near something negative....Antiques stores are real hard on me...

Don't discussion this much...but your thread jumped at me...images and places. Ive learned control and it was very hard as a child to understand.

I hope everything isn't true....but .....I've not read about the crimes, and wont ...to keep any thoughts clear. Maybe keep us all posted.???

It's someone in authority of some kind...that's why they aren't caught...Official, supervisor, manage, security...

Best, M.S.
