Vancouver Police are
looking for the killer or killers of 31 or more prostitutes missing from
a four block corridor of Vancouver's downtown east side.
It all began 1995‹ one by one prostitutes began disappearing from the
downtown east side. In total, more than 31 prostitutes have disappeared
and police aren't sure who is responsible. Police have no crime scenes
and no bodies. Of the original 31 missing women, four were recovered:
two alive and two died under normal circumstances. Currently, 27 women
are still missing from the poster.
Vancouver Police claim an additional 3 missing women's disappearances
from the east side are being investigated: Sherry Leigh Irving, Brenda
Wolfe and Jennifer Furminger they're not recent disappearances, but
rather their disappearances as late as early 1999 were just brought to
the attention of police.
Since the July 1999 broadcast, Vancouver Police have recovered four of
the missing women. Two were found alive and two died in hospitals due to
Police say the anonymous caller who left a message on a 1-800 number set
up by a friend of one of the victims last year was a hoax. Also, police
are no longer interested in a brown van that prowled the east side area
on weekends. The van's presence is unrelated to this case.
