I suspect that there is more than one serial killer who has been working this stretch of Highway.
And I believe one of them tried to pick me up, as I lived on the Highway of Tears for most of year at one point. And I mean that, I was about 2
blocks off of the Highway.
At the time I looked quite a bit more like Shelly-Ann Bascu, and the place the guy tried to pick me up was probably with a 1/4 of a kilometer of where
she disappeared. Maybe less. I'd bet it was quite a bit less.
Not information I knew until after this incident. I didn't know about the Highway of Tears murders when I lived there. I went and looked at the
website after reading about it in the paper about a year later, and when I saw the picture of Shelly-Ann she was the only picture I clicked on the
first time. Because, she looked so much like me. Then I saw the rest of the information, and the hair on my neck went up.
Older man - maybe 60s?, older blue-grey vehicle obviously not used too much, well kept, and a garaged vehicle. (this would make him closer in his 70s
When he drove up to me and he'd obviously stalked me to where I was - he'd had to backtrack from when I crossed the highway - I backed away from his
vehicle and told him I lived there. In that moment he froze for a fragment of a second while looking at me, got a haunted look in his eyes and
squealed off as fast as he could.
I've had all sorts of guys try to pick me up including bad men, but that guy.... he was something different.
Didn't report it - what's to report. Creepy Guy offered me a ride because I looked like I might be a hitchhiker, on a road full of hitchhiking
temporary workers. No one would take that seriously. What-ya-do?
As I said - I suspect that there is more than one person working this highway. And I suspect that it is possible that men of bad intent have used the
mystic to cover for their own crimes of opportunity.
(I was also stalked off and on by the guy I believed they eventually started calling the 7/11 stalker. I saw exactly one report in the paper about
him, later and was happy that'd he'd finally been tagged. I'd already figured out that that was were he kept picking me out from - when I went by
them. Mostly just liked to find a place ahead of you to get out, come up between two buildings and present himself partially naked and choking the
snake. Seemed to like my annoyance and disgust.
Did not like the time he went past me with the van door open though. Called in to the police that time AT the 7/11 and they didn't take me seriously.
Which was actually the second time I'd called them from a 7/11 about the guy following me. Tried to call family and friends to come get me, but no
one was answering and the one person who I did get was so drunk they couldn't stand up.
I walked home, and he went by me with the van door open. That was a LONG run home while trying not to make it obvious where I lived.
Just after this is when I moved to Hinton and I've not seen him since. Never have heard if they ever got him.)
