Linda Louise Grant is my birth mother. I never knew her as I was adopted as a baby. I found my birth family 6 years ago, and found out about the missing women. So far they have not found anything on my mother. I still have hopes of finding her, though I know that will probably not happen. My heart goes out to all the family's of the women who have been found on the farm. As well as to those who still don't know where their loved ones are. Keep hope in your hearts. If anyone has any information about my birth mother, or even knew her at some point, please email me as I would love to know her through others...not just the family. I will keep praying for all the women who are missing. My email addy is Briana

My thoughts are with those who have lost family members. I feel the police never did their jobs, this went on for far too long, and perhaps some lives could have been saved! as Far as Willy Pickton goes, I hope he never has a moments piece, I also wish they would put him in the general public and let the inmates take care of him. He is not worth protecting. God Bless all of you out there! And to those who hitchhike STOP IT. YOU NEVER KNOW WHO IS GOING TO PICK YOU UP!!!!!

My Michelle, my dear Michelle, where are you? Do you remember when I would take you to Stanley Park in your pretty pink dress and feed the Squirrels? Remember how we would sit at a coffee shop sipping chocolate milk from fancy glasses and seeing who could make the most bubbles? To me you are my beautiful little niece, so full of smiles after a full day falling asleep as we watched a silly movie. I would brush your blonde hair away from your forward as you were always so warm when you slept, sometimes you would pat my hand, others times you would whisper something . I never could hear what you would whisper and now I would give my life to have you whisper it. How I wish I could protect you and brush the hair away from your forehead, just to watch you sleep - God , what would that take? What can I give to bring my Michelle back to me? I have given you buckets of tears, screams of anguish, a million prayers, please take me to where she is , I need to hear her whisper. I love you Michelle Caroline Choiniere, I miss you.

Willy Pickton knows what he has done. There has been DNA found on the farm of some missing women and no charges laid for whatever the reasons. WHY doesn't this guy just fess up? WHEN and i mean WHEN he is convicted of the grisly crimes he won't see the light of day anyway. Why not just fess up to all he knows and let these families put their loved ones to rest. Let them have closure.

My heart goes out to all the families of the missing all over B.C. and Canada for that matter. It's strange how so much of this has been close to me . I lived in Revelstoke most of my life and knew Dwayne Johnston (convicted of murdering Helen Betty Osbourne in La Pas Manitoba) who would have known? Then now knowing that someone else that was in my life is now missing. From what I understand DNA was found on the Pickton Farm that matched the girl that I once called my niece's far as I know no charges have been laid. I'm out of touch with that family now ,but still shed tears. It truly is a small world but in such a terrible way.

I read Maggie de Vries' book "Missing Sarah" over a year ago for a class at the University. I was extremely happy to find that there is an ongoing awareness about all of the missing women in Vancouver's lower-east side. There are many cases of missing women being reported in Edmonton, as well, and it just enrages me when people believe that all of these women are subhuman. We are all children; we are all connected. This site is proof of that to whomever would believe otherwise. I hope this site remains updated whenever possible, and also I hope it continues to spread awareness through not only British Columbia, but nation-wide.

I've posted here before, but signed on to read the latest messages and see if anything was posted about new developments on the missing women from Vancouver's downtown Eastside. I hope that Pickton tells all he knows about those still missing and unaccounted for. I can well imagine how hard it is for the families. All of you have tremendous grace and dignity and I admire you all tremendously and think of you often, though I don't know you and I have never been to Vancouver. For some people, life is so unfair and it is very sad to read about what happened to those who had their whole lives ahead of them. For Maggie DeVries, I am so sorry about your lovely sister Sarah. She was obviously a very special person. I am going to purchase your book. It is a wonderful tribute to your sister.

I have been following the story, it has made me very sad, angry. Willy Pickton, who has been preying upon these women is a mean ugly, murdering dog, where does he come from anyways, I know two of these women, I am not ashamed of them, at one time or another, I probably spoke or went to school with, namely, Michelle Gurney and Rebecca Guno, I will say a prayer for all the women on this site. The Nisga a Nation has lost these members and more, time to speak up and be strong. I would also like to remember my auntie Mary Hill, who was found on the side of Highway 16,just outside of Prince Rupert, B.C. Without our mothers and aunties our nations become weak. We must all stand up and be counted, we will not be wiped out, we are striving to live our lives. Mankind has to learn how to get along with each others. All we have is our hopes and prayers for all the families who have lost their loved ones. Take care one and all.

I live in Australia and am appalled that so many women can be missing and linked to that hellhole and nothing is being done about it. Where is the uproar? These are women, not lost animals, they may have lost there way at times but who hasn't? Nobody deserves that fate and the families deserve to know what happened to their loved ones. I pray they are at peace now and are being treated better now then when they were alive. The lesson here is not to forget but to look out for the women that are in the same position and try to stop this from ever happing again.

Well I would just like to say that last night I just found out that a girl I went to school with was killed by Robert (willy) Pickton. I think this man and whoever else is involved is a very sick man. These people have friends and family that care so much about them. I knew Diana Melnick in School. Went to school with her for years till she moved to Vancouver and I heard from her a couple times then never heard anything about her or from her till I looked up the pics of the missing women and they found her DNA on the Pickton farm. I think this man is very sick and does not deserve to live....

I wondered how you were over the years, until one day my shock and sadness upon seeing your face on that poster still wrenches my heart.

In 1983 at a local hangout for teens, I watched a young blonde girl as she was walking with her friends. I was jealous. She was so pretty. They were meeting up with guys my friend and I had hoped to hook up with. She dated one who started beating her and got her hooked on drugs. She was with him for 5 years with the abuse taking its toll. The last I heard she dated another guy for a bit then disappeared. Unbeknownst to me, she ended up in downtown Vancouverís East Side. She was 19 or 20. Last year, I read an article in the Timmins Times that said she may have been one of the victims of Robert & Dave Pickton. She's been missing since March 1995. Itís safe to say she lived the life of a prostitute to maintain her drug addiction. I still envision her walking down the street that day. Young, carefree, not a care in the world. It saddens me that she ended up in the clutches of madmen because of the circumstances of her life. What if she never met the guy who beat her and got her addicted to drugs? Where would she be now if she hadnít gotten involved with him? I canít get this young woman out of my mind. This could have been me. I was told she had an abusive childhood which will sometimes dictate decisions you make. Deep in my gut I know she has befallen the same fate as the other ladies pictured on this site. When I saw her picture it was like looking at a totally different person. Her eyes showed the sadness and pain life meted out to her, a sad acceptance of her circumstances. Gone was the beautiful, blonde hair and in its place a shell of her former self; a picture of someone there in body, not in mind, spirit broken. It still haunts me when I look at it. The public forgets there are people on the street fighting, scraping and doing whatever it takes to survive; regardless of drug addiction, mental disorder, abuse at home or whatever it is that lands them on the streets, these people need our help, not be ostracized from society. We all make choices in life and unfortunately these were the choices left remaining for these women. I write this because I donít want anyone to forget her. Her name was Cathy Gonzales and she would have been 37 today. Even though we werenít close friends, Iíll never forget this beautiful woman. Cathy, may you have finally found peace with your place in heaven. Life has forsaken you but I havenít and hopefully others havenít either.

Dear Sheila E., I am writing this letter with the hopes that you may still be alive, and that you will get a chance to read it one day. In some ways, it seems as though the days we spent together in Britannia Beach occurred just yesterday. We were young and naive, but I really thought that I was going to marry you for you were the first one that I had consented to. Remember how your mom wanted me to marry your sister, and how we used to pick on "Oh Henry"? What about when I used to sing those New Kids on the Block songs outside of your bedroom window? Seems silly when I look back, but in actual fact, those were some of the best days because it diverted my attention from the chaos we both experienced elsewhere. It wasn't long after that night in the basement that I wound up in the concrete jungle whackin smack, trickin, and shit. I wander whatever happened to people like Jose, Surferboy, Styx, Batman, Denise, Crystal, Ester and others. It's amazing how I still remember their names. You were all family to me and I felt guilty when I got out, but I had to. Remember how we used to say that once you ended up here you'd never leave? It's ten years later and I finally know what that means. Physically I left, but mentally I can't. Still having the nightmares and flashbacks - even without dope for eight and half years. The last time I saw you was in Maple Ridge in '97. Remember, I was walking from treatment and passed you at the arcade. We hugged, you said there was shit going down, and we'd hook-up later sometime. I wish I had done something. The guys I was with gave me a lot of flack because I wasn't supposed to talk to anyone from outside, but I didn't care. Time went on and I didn't hear from you. The next time I saw your face was in a police station on a poster. They didn't listen to me, and didn't seem to care much then. I hope things have since changed. I got three kids now - who aren't afraid of me - doing alright, getting educated - I can read now - but somehow I feel like I gotta do something about that shit hole that took us all. Seems like the same thing going on, just a lot of different people now. If your alive then we gotta hook-up. I don't like goodbyes... Love Josh

I could easily have been one of these woman. Dead and wasted. They all had so much to offer the world. They had a chance to get well, to be part of the solution, to dream, to love, to be loved. That choice was so brutally taken from them. Who knows what beauty has been lost to us all now. As Sarah said, lost angels. I have 13 years clean now. I have friends, family, a home. I am loved and I love back. I can give to others what I have learned. I can save lives with what I know. All of these beautiful lost angels could have had, should have had, the chance to do the same. So many lives touched so horribly. It could have all been so different, had they been given the chance to live. People forget that these woman are loved by someone, grieved by someone, missed by someone, valued by someone, just as deeply as you love yours. They were all someone's beautiful child, mother, sister, wife....angel. They deserved so much more than to be left so alone on a monsters farm. They will always be in my prayerful thoughts, as will their loved ones. Go well, beautiful angels. We have lost you, but, we will not forget you.

I was a street urchin in California 30 years ago. And all the 'fun' that come with it. I was a junkie for a few years and know how hard it is to hide, and even more hard to get off. That's been about 25 years ago. I way 'successful' now. My passion is to help others. It' seems like Vancouver is the town that should be the start. Free needle exchanges. Safe sex areas. Free heroin - if needed. Free mental health treatment. Same houses for everyone to go if they need it. The only way to get off that merry go round, is to have someone/something there when YOU decide to do it. No many give up on there friends and family. Can't blame them for that. We tended to burn our bridges, eh? There is so much that can be done. So much hurting and pain. I have ideas, I want to work it. I want to help. Jana

The lyrics I posted "I'll remember you" are from the Linda Eder CD, "Broadway My Way." I was listening to the song "I'll remember you," and it moved me greatly, and I thought of it and decided to post the lyrics in memory of the missing women from Vancouver when I signed the guestbook. The CD is in no way connected with the missing women--Mrs..

In memory of Vancouver's Missing Women: Lyrics from the Linda Eder CD, "Broadway My Way": Cathedral bells were tolling and our hearts sang on Was it the spell of Paris or the April dawn? Who knows if we shall meet again? But when the morning chimes ring sweet again I'll be seeing you In all the old familiar places That this heart of mine embraces all day through In that small cafe, the park across the way, The children's carousel, the chestnut trees The wishing well, I'll be seeing you In every lovely summer's day In everything that's light and gay, I'll always think of you that way. I'll find you in the morning sun, and when the night is new I'll be looking at the moon but I'll be seeing you.

Just wanted to say that I agree whole heartedly with kim, not enough has been done to find danielle. The day I found out that she was missing, I contacted Vancouver RCMP and had them fax me a poster of danny to my office, then within minutes, I had her picture circulated world wide through internet via some connections that I have through my work. Plus, I contacted CTV news and ripped them a new a**hole for only allowing a few mere seconds of air time devoted to finding her. I was absolutely disgusted that they did not find her worthy enough to give the same amount of airtime that they do for every other missing female in this province. The next week, that is all you saw, morn, noon,& night on the news. Danielle, If you can read this, we are not giving up the search for you baby, we love you very much, and want you home, safe and sound. Kimmy, If you read this, contact me, e-mail me soon.

She may be gone from this place but in all honesty, Sarah's beauty will remain everlasting to all who were privy to it. I named my daughter after her many years before she disappeared, I will always keep the times I shared with her close to my heart, I love you Sarah I'll see you again

When I found out Patty was taken from us I felt absolutely sick. I think about our grade three class picture and how beautiful and innocent she was. She and I were attached pretty much @ the hip. It's crazy how drastically our lives went in different directions. I miss her like mad. I often wonder what happened to Kathy-Joe and Michael? Patty I guess is in heaven with her dad, Glen who I guess took his own life shortly after losing Patty.

Hi there, I am one of the "normal's" that some of you refer to. Just so that you all know, not every one of us look down our nose at those of us who chose to live their lives on the street. Believe me, I have my own set of problems. Everyone's issues and problems are relevant to themselves. This is it though, we only get one chance at life. For those of you who live on the streets or are addicted to drugs, whether you choose to or not, there is so much out there. You are all better than letting drugs control your life. My thoughts and prayers to the victims and their families.

First of all, my condolences to the friends and families that have lost their members....I truly feel for you, I have known some and miss them terribly....My two cents worth....I have just finished reading most of the posts on this site. I have seen life on both sides. Some of my best friends, as well as myself, have lived on the edge and on the streets, as prostitutes, drug users and dealers. All of us have very 'colorful' personalities. By colorful I mean..well, flamboyant, silly, crazy. or just plain nuts. I find that attractive, I love interesting, true people. Now, I don't believe that anyone should loose there life over ANYTHING, but when the 'normal' people are looking down their noses at 'us', it is with true knowledge that most of us would betray our best friend for a 'hit', or rob, steal and lie for one as well. We are a Motley Crue, nothing is sacred. 'They' don't live that why judge them???? We are as guilty as they for being judgmental, if that is the case. I have known many women that have given up their own children for life on the streets, and for drugs. And for that, there has to be some justice, even if it is having the 'normals' writing emails that we think are unfitting. Think about it before everyone gets to bent out of shape. And I am referring to the pages of 53 to 56 specifically, when some poor woman wrote that she saw street people from her office window. Come on women! We all know how we live on the streets! We CHOSE TO BE THERE! WE EMBRACED OUR DRUG ADDICTION....otherwise we wouldn't have been on Vancouver's East Side.....there were other options!!! There was/is a friendship, but nothing is sacred....nothing. Put that in your pipe and smoke it.

She is approx. 5'7", White, born May 09,1978, usually blonde, blue eyed, tatoo's (arm) incl names Johnny& Michael. Has a friend nicknamed Skoob (black. Last known to be in the lower mainland of BC, mainly Vancouver area since 2001. I contacted the Ministry of Social to explain my situation (wanting to let my dau know I love her and would like her to call me). They put a flag on her financial assist file (in April) to let her know I wish her to call me but there has been no response yet. I would be the only person she can gain any info re her sons as I have an open adoption agreement the parents. Thus I felt she would want to keep in contact. We'd always had reasonably regular contact prior to May 2004.Anyone who can give me info on how to search for my daughter in a city as vast as Vancouver please contact me at 1 250 755 3023 God bless those who give their time & attention to the missing women lest others forget.

Elsie Sebastian: Beloved mother of four children...grandmother of two grandsons and a granddaughter. I get a lump in my throat every time I think of how loving and caring she was. This lady could make you laugh and feel zest for life. She loved her children dearly even though she was not always with them. Now that I am a mother of my first son all I can think of is how beautiful life is and how precious the gift of life is. This is what she may have felt as a mother when she was with us kids...I feel that same way for my son...the grandson she will not know in this life time. I know she is here in spirit...but I still mourn for her and my heart feels heavy for her loss. What happened to her? And when will the Higher Power bring her home to us? Elsie was and is loved by many family and friends. She was a great friend, cousin, sister, mother, daughter, granddaughter and grandmother - her memory will be honored and loved forever. This is but a small tribute to a wonderful woman who will never be forgotten. And may this be lesson to our young First Nations women to value their lives because there are many sick people who prey on the weak for power and control. There is but one Higher Power and may you find Him now. And he will judge those who have hurt others - especially OUR MISSING WOMEN. All my relations!

14TH ANNUAL WOMENíS MEMORIAL MARCH FEBRUARY 14, 2005 A DAY OF ROSES AND REMEMBRANCE FOR THE WOMEN WHO HAVE TRAGICALLY DIED AND HOPE FOR THE WOMEN WHO ARE STILL UNACCOUNTED FOR IN THE DOWNTOWN EASTSIDE OF VANCOUVER. ~Their Spirits Live Within Us~ The Womenís Memorial March is held on Valentineís Day, February 14th to commemorate the women in the Downtown Eastside who die each year due to violence, not just physical violence but the violence of HIV/AIDS, homelessness, poverty, addictions, and lack of medical care. The womenís lives and deaths are swept aside because of where these women lived, what they do for money, or who they were. These women are not nameless, they are not faceless, they are human beings deserving more than what they got. It is important that the SEVENTY TWO WOMEN of this community are not forgotten but remembered, honored and loved for who they were: Mothers, daughters, sisters, aunties, grandmothers, and friends. It is important that public pressure continue on the authorities that are investigating the disappearances and the connection of alleged murderer William Pickton of these women, so that they do not remain a hidden and ignored segment of society. The Womenís Memorial March begins at Carnegie Centre at Main & Hastings at 1PM. A community of friends and family members led by women will move together through the streets of the Downtown Eastside, stopping at the sites where women have died, to leave a rose in remembrance, an offering of tobacco, prayers and do a cleansing ceremony for healing. ITINERARY 14TH ANNUAL WOMENíS MEMORIAL MARCH Monday February 14, 2005 12 PM Speakers, Carnegie Centre Theatre 1 PM March begins with a circle at Main & Hastings 2 PM Speakers outside the Police Station 2:30 PM Healing Circle at Oppenheimer Park, Candles of Remembrance 3 PM Feast at the Japanese Language School 475 Alexander St. For more information please contact: Marlene at (604) 665-3005

It's becoming more and more difficult to even glance at a member of the Vancouver police department without feeling a certain amount of both fear and disgust. It's a shame that those who live in better communities without a large police presence will probably never know just what a disgrace the system that's meant to serve and protect has become and may never see the absurdity of a civilian calling the police to report a problem within the police force. Reform is necessary. I can't stomach the thought of viewing the police involved in this particular holocaust along with countless other incidents as "heroes".

I look at the pictures of all the missing women and my heart is filled with sadness. they all have put up with some pretty hard times. when i look at Sarah's picture and think of her life I am so glad for all the love that she had, and all the good times in her life. The hardships she encountered throughout are heartbreaking. I really wish there were more structures in place so that women who are struggling have a place to go. I like the idea of safe injection sites. I've never really thought about withdrawal before until i read the book did i learn about the pain and suffering and what being addicted does to you. I want all the affected families, friends and others to know that I am sorry for what has happened and that I pray for them.

I am printing the photos for the 14th Annual February 14th Women's Memorial March in the dtes. I am still after all of these years shocked and dismayed that this could be real. I see the photos of the 72 women and it is unbelievable that no investigation happened any sooner than it did. I can't help but think that for sure some of these women could have been saved had investigation begun sooner. I do not believe that Pickton acted alone in this abhorrent act. This is five times the number of women who were murdered in the Montreal Massacre in 1989. It would be nice for the women to be recognized as WOMEN FIRST and sex trade workers and addicted women second.

Allan Legere killed five people.

One in 1986 and four in 1989.

He killed one man in 1986 and, in 1989, while serving a life sentence for the 1986 murder, he escaped and killed three women and a priest. All of these murders took place in Miramichi, New Brunswick, not Quebec.

Wow, this is quite some website!!! Those poor women could have been many of my friends if it this horror story would have happened in my city. We in Saskatoon also face POLICE CORRUPTION AND RACISM, but it is against native men here. I wonder if you have ever heard of Saskatoon's 'Star Lite Tours' courtesy of our fine SPD. Many native men have been given this tour and have been dropped off on the outskirt of the city in
-40 weather. Many did not make it back to town, except for one very lucky individual, Darrel Night. For an Interesting read, you should check out the website ( I think thats the address, if not, a search engine will help you)We in Canada have to stand up and stop these corrupt police departments from letting such atrocities towards our friends, lovers, family members, ever happen again. I plan on visiting this site regularly to keep watch for any of these women.I guess it's another example of the public doing a civic workers job.

Staff-Sgt. Murray Lund of the RCMP-Vancouver police missing women task force has told the families of several missing women that police will issue a new poster today with names and faces of women who have not previously been on the official list.

Port Coquitlam pig farmer Robert Pickton, 53, faces 22 counts of first-degree murder in connection with the missing women.

Dear Maggie,
I just finished reading your book about your sister and I can't tell you how much it moved me. My husband is a police officer in the city of Calgary and works in the "hard core" area of forest lawn where our notorious "stroll" is located. My husband is actively involved in "cleaning up" the residential area and is currently working with prostitutes in the area and is familiar with all of them on how to improve their lives as well as the residents of the neighborhood. He is all too familiar with their situations which parallel your sisters. Both of us would like to extend our deepest sympathies to you and your family for your tragic loss. Both my husband and I agree with your statement that these women are not just prostitutes, they are peoples daughters, mothers and sisters. I will be suggesting to the Calgary Police Services Learning centre that they should be incorporating your book in their recruit teachings as an educational tool to look upon these women as people and not simply just "working girls" that they need to move along. Please let me know if this will be ok with you as I feel your book is not only inspiring but educational as well. I find that the new recruits will most likely develop a novel sensitivity to these women's situations and lifestyle complexities.
You truly are an inspiration and I can't tell you how horrible I feel that you, your family, and most importantly sarah, had to go through this ordeal. She sounds like she was an amazing person who was deeply loved by all who came into her life. I look forward to hearing from you.

My sister disappeared in Canada in 1983. She previously traveled through California and through Canada. The last place we heard from her was Moose Jaw, Sask.
It took me over 18 years to have her finally declared as missing. The United States said she disappeared in Canada, so they wouldn't take the report and Canada said she was a US citizen (Though we know she was in Canada at least 2 years before her disappearance) and wouldn't take the report.
Finally after years(17) of trying and retrying, the Moose Jaw police finally listed her as missing. The Hometown address I have here is a link to my sister missing person page. I know she had a drug problem and was mentally ill, perfect victim. I also know she kept in contact, no matter where she was or how long she was gone, she never ever forgot a birthday or just a card to say hello and that she missed and loved us, and always telling us she was doing fine, as she did not want our mother to worry. That all stopped, all the cards, the phone calls, stopped, in 1983. I believe my sister is dead, I believe her remains are in Canada...In fact, she may be one of the victims in Vancouver...I just never seem to get anyone who really can help..

Thanks for this site..Thanks for listening..

It is 21 years now and still our family will never be whole again, we have buried our mother, she died never knowing what happened to her daughter, for me Mary was my big sister, she taught me to dance, fix my hair, showed me how to put make up on, protected me from bullies, yelled at me when I was wrong, talked to me to inspire me to reach for greater things in life, and most of all she had a wonderful sense of humor and she showed me how to love and appreciate so many things that life has to offer, when Mary walked into a room everything seemed brighter...until we know where our Mary is...there is just this dead eternal empty space where she should be...

Well here we are. Change is finally slowly happening in the downtown east side. Interesting that I just looked through some of the postings and the one below here has Roger posting about the Brandiz hotel. I lived there for some years. What a hell hole!

Remember folks. That change happens within and when we participate in the communities we live in.

For myself that is the whole world. As the internet brings us all closer together.

I also created a new website for B.C women who are seeking recovery. I know a there are many women on this site who are in 12step recovery and I believe it is important for us to create a greater sense of community for us women.

That is what many of the missing women were looking for. I am a strong believer in the harm reduction movement that is finally being implemented here and have a high regard for those doing the work.

The site I created is not just for 12step recovery. The front page explains that.
Thank you for those who care about others in their communities and work to better understand the issues we women face in our everyday lives.

Blessed be.
All our relations.

I lived in the Brandiz Hotel on Hastings for a period of time. I knew some of the missing girls, one in particular was Jackie McDonell. I still miss you Jackie, my prayers are with your Aunt who made me so welcome when we met and also your Daughter who has lost a mother that really cared for her. Life is such a struggle for all the girls involved in the sex trade, lots of people pass them on their way in and out of the city, struggling to feed their habits in the only way they know possible. Robert Pickton may you 'Rot in Hell' for what you have done to these poor innocents, their families and friends. Shame on you VPD for not reacting earlier, shame on the BC government for not providing these lost souls with more recovery services. I now live in the UK, but keep up with the news via this important web site,

My mother is Elsie Sebastian. She is a Pacheedaht First Nations woman from the West Coast of Vancouver Island and she has been missing since the early 90s from the Lower east side. I also have a sister named Donalee and a brother Neil and Robert Jr. who miss and love Elsie dearly. Because Elsie was taken from us so suddenly, she hasn't even seen or met my 6 year old son Connor or my sister Donalee's new born baby Dylan. As a result, Elsie may not even know she has 2 beautiful grandsons. Our hearts grieve for our mother and I often cry for her and wish she was still with me everyday. I feel guilty and remorseful that I did not treat her better and cherish the last moment that I spent with her, yet at the same time I was angry at her because she was in the throws of her addiction. Nevertheless, I love and miss my mother dearly and would give anything to hear my mom's laugh again and see her smile! She had a great sense of humor and was a friendly and talkative person. It feels as though my short time with my mother was a dream.........slowly fading my memory. Please remember these women were mothers and sisters and friends, and they had children, husbands and grandchildren who love them dearly and miss them with all our hearts. I pray daily that god will send me a message and let me know when the time is right what happened to my mother. She was not a throw away junkie and hooker, she was a respected and loving mother and joyous spirit who i will fight for until the day i die. I work in treaty negotiations and this person stake in my work helps me to fight on.

After having a few years to take all this still hurts just as much!!
Cynthia (Cindy) Louise Beck was my dear friend. She was the adopted daughter of a mennonite couple in Ontario. She had an older brother, who was also adopted and became a minister. Her younger sister, who came along after her parents gave up believing they would ever have a child 'of their own', became a missionary. Ironic in a way because no one could save Cindy from herself. While Cindy was a young teenager she became pregnant and had a son, who was eventually adopted by another family...oh how I would love to see him. I went to the hospital and brought her flowers when he was born. Would he have her eyes, her smile, her sense of humour??? I know that her family traveled from Ontario to British Columbia and searched for her in 1996 but never found her. Her mother said that when she stopped calling home, which she failed to do on her birthday, they knew that something was wrong.
P.S. The picture you have that says this is Cindy in her happier days is an absolutely awful picture and I know she would not like it either.
To my friend...I love you. The description prostitute, drug user does not describe who you are...just something you did for reasons unknown.

Since the police failed to respond correctly to reports from women, (i.e. Holli Innes & Mrs. Frey), it leaves the impression that police in Vancouver are HELPING the snuff movie industry, by ignoring the reports about the suspects.

last September 25, 2003, I witnessed a woman being snatched off the corner of Powell & Columbia and police treated my report as if it were a joke. One month later another woman screamed for her life on the opposite corner.

Ruth Thompson was missing soon afterward. Soon the police found Ruth's body floating in the Fraser River. the police quickly jumped to the conclusion that Ruth KILLED HERSELF! No one down here who knew Ruth believes that for one minute. I strongly doubt Ruth's family agrees with police response.

On December 27, 2003, another woman screamed for her life n the middle of her life. Again I tried to report it, but was only laughed at by police who insisted I run around the neighbourhood, looking for a working public phone in order to report the abductions, right after they occur. Nonsense, I won't do it! to do what the officer insisted upon would put me in the path of the man who is abducting women from the DTES streets. a very suspicious response.

Again a woman was missing. Again when her body was found police jumped quickly to the conclusion it was suicide, even though she was a small woman and I reported a small woman as having been snatched on the 27th of December. It wasn't even investigated.

Now almost every week a woman's body is found either floating in the Fraser River or chopped to bits in a dumpster. I bet police think the women chopped themselves to bits.

Frankly, since I have reported what I saw and since women tried to come forward with information about Piggy's Palace years sooner than police acted and since police are treating me the same way they treated the women who told them about Piggy's Palace, even though I am not a drug user or a prostitute, it leads me to the conclusion that police are involved in the snuff movie industry. It must mean good money for them. Has anyone investigated that possibility? It is growing more obvious day by day, year by year, decade by decade, ignored abduction by ignored abduction.

I just bet Vancouver is the Snuff Movie capital of the Olympic World!

Nanaimo students perform true-to-life story off streets

Times Colonist (Victoria)
Adrian Chamberlain

Thursday May 13, 2004

A Nanaimo high-school play -- inspired partly by the Pickton pig-farm murder case -- accurately portrays the brutal lives of prostitutes, says a former sex trade worker.

Special to Times Colonist

Life among the sex-trade workers is the subject of a play written and performed by students at Nanaimo's Dover Bay high school. Here Whitney Rodgers tries to haul Coleen Weaver upright.

Brenda Omichinski, 43, was favorably impressed after seeing i have a name, a new drama created by students at Nanaimo's Dover Bay secondary school.

"It did seem real, a lot of the parts did," said Nanaimo's Omichinski, who for 28 years was a prostitute and drug addict in Vancouver and Nanaimo. "I thought it was amazing. I cried from the beginning to the end."

She is among a handful of former sex trade workers interviewed for the school project, which was researched, written and acted by Dover Bay students. i have a name, slated for a Friday night public performance at Esquimalt secondary school, takes an unblinkered look at the underground lives of prostitutes -- even portraying real-life tragedies.

Performed by female students aged 15 to 18 from Nanaimo's middle-class Hammond Bay district, i have a name depicts sex trade workers as regular folk with ordinary goals and aspirations. At the same time, the 45-minute work doesn't flinch from the squalor of drug addiction or the plight of women whose remains were unearthed at the Pickton farm in Port Coquitlam.

i have a name concludes with a monologue taken from the journals of Sarah de Vries, whose DNA was founded on the farm following her 1998 disappearance from Vancouver's East Side.

"(The play) does address the disappearances, the beatings and the murders," said Hugh Anderson, a 51-year-old drama teacher who directed and helped create the play. "It examines the progress into the pit of drug use."

The students created i have a name after deciding to explore the theme of sexual exploitation. It was first performed in February at a Parksville drama festival. Since then, the play has been staged in Nanaimo to mostly positive reactions, despite disturbing subject matter and profane language, said Anderson. i have a name has been performed at Dover Bay school (outside school hours because of its language) and at Malaspina University-College.

Anderson was relieved when, following the first public show, former sex trade workers said i have a name has the ring of truth.

"We were a little worried someone was going to walk up and say, 'This is bullshit.' And they didn't."

Cast member Amber Bonner, 18, said she initially viewed the play's subject matter with distaste.

"You have the stereotype of a hooker with her hooker boots and her miniskirt. All that has changed for every one of us," she said.

"All of my friends (now) know they are not to say the word 'whore' around me, because I will go off."

Bonner plays a prostitute in i have a name. Her parents were supportive as "they know it's just a role." She said i have a name is a bold departure from Departure Bay school's usual theatrical fare. Recent productions include Footloose, about teens who love to dance, and Crazy for You, a George Gershwin revue.

The play portrays a horrific incident that happened to Omichinski when she worked the streets. The former sex trade worker -- now a volunteer at women's transition houses -- found herself taking care of a friend suffering the effects of drug withdrawal. Omichinski was poised to step into the car of a prospective client when her companion took her place, insisting she felt better.

"She took the car that actually stopped for me. They found her dead in a trunk of that car later on that night," said the native of Fort Saskatchewan, Alta. "I realize how close it had come. Because you risk death every time you walk into that, every time you go into a car."

i have a name depicts another real-life event -- the time Omichinski waited in vain for nine days to get a space at a crowded detox centre. She spent much of the time withdrawing on the floor of a friend's apartment.

Omichinski particularly likes the fact i have a name shows prostitutes as human beings.

"We do have feelings. It's not that we're trying to hurt anybody. We hurt ourselves more."

After the Esquimalt performance, i have a name will be performed May 27 at Vancouver's East Cultural Centre. There will be a question-and-answer period following Friday's show. Proceeds go to Victoria's Prostitute Empowerment Education and Resource Society (PEERS).

I am a doctoral student in Ontario who is studying the cases of the missing women. As such I frequently access these sites, and every time I do, I am deeply disturbed at the disregard for the lives of these and many other women, for whom life is one challenge after another.
Violence against women in any form is abhorrent. These women, so damaged by victimization, managed to 'survive' for so long in a world where most of us would perish. the fact that these women could be snuffed out is bad enough, but it seems at least in the beginning of the media coverage of these disappearances, the objectification of them continued. I can recall feeling so saddened and angered about the stories in the media and how they referred to the missing women as 'vancouver prostitutes' or as 'missing sex trade workers' As is usually the case the women's community has responded by giving the women back their names, faces, and the human dignity that all people are rightfully entitled. The further marginalization of women already disadvantaged, living in poverty, struggling with issues of addiction and abuse by reducing them to what they do instead of who they are or where is a sad commentary about how easily we accept the objectification of women. As well, given that most of the missing women are Aboriginal and, that there are a further some 500 missing Aboriginal women across Canada, we need to be looking seriously at the racism in the commission of these crimes. As well, we need to be asking questions, (as many are) about the (seemingly) indifferent attitudes that may have pervaded the initial interest in these cases, by the public, the media, and the police. We all bare some responsibility for how these women were cared for, how they became so marginalized, and, how their disappearances were allowed to remain unprobed, even in the face of desperate cries from family members, friends, women's groups, and communities.

To me and many others the name Yvonne Boen means laughter, kindness, daughter, aunt, mother, sister, and friend those who met Yvonne always walked away knowing they had one more friend. Although yvonne didn't have custody of her children most of there lives she remained in contact with them always, and was so proud of them. They are what made her sparkle. When I met Yvonne we were both 18 and she had been married separated and had 3 boys under 3yrs of age that is a lot of responsibility for anyone yet alone a 18 yr old. I couldn't imagine stepping in her shoes for a day at 35 yet alone 18. Letting family members raise her children was out of love for her children not because they were a burden to her. She cried many nights over her children, no one will ever know what she went through. The only reason she never took them back is because they were stable and happy where they were and she didn't want to take that away from them. Yvonne never even did drugs or drink when I met her it was a couple of years before she went missing that she started using. I know it was a short lived experience and it can happen to anyone all it took for her was meeting the wrong person who had money and it was always there. I really don't think she thought of where she would be when the cash was gone, and by the time that happened she was hooked but it wasn't there for her anymore and that scared her it was then she new she was way in over her head thats when she turned to some friends who were on the streets, and when she did that she was so embarrassed that she wouldn't call her old friends because she wouldn't be able to look us in the eye and tell us how her life so drastically changed. When she left my house I don't know if she knew where her path was taking her, but when she left that was the last time I seen or talked to her all she left with were the clothes on her back, she didn't even take her wallet or phonebook nor any clothes she was so disappointed in herself that she wouldn't come back to get them, it was easier for her that way she didn't have to face me. This sicko has destroyed and taken so many lives, I cannot understand how he can even tolerate himself.) not only those of the missing women but everyone around the missing women as well as his own family & friends, I wonder if he ever once thought about them having to live the rest of there lives with his shadow following them everywhere they go. There lives will never be the same either. He is the perfect example as to why we should have the death penalty in Canada, It would save us a lot of time and money, something this creep is not worth. My heart goes out to everyone who has been affected by these unbelievable crimes. Willy I hope you rot in hell for all the evil you have created for yourself and I also hope for once in your pathetic life you will do the right thing and take all those involved down with you as everyone knows you were to stupid to have accomplished this all on your own. Yvonne I miss you more than words can say not a day goes by that I don't think of what you went through till we meet again my friend so long for now.

Years ago when I was a passenger in my brother's car we saw this dark haired guy in Stanley Park putting a shovel into the back trunk of his car. He had dark hair and looked as if he might be an Italian. He was not white but not a black person either. The car was a fancy white cadillac type of car. This was after 12 midnight and it seemed rather strange that someone would be using a shovel in the park at that time of night. My brother switched off the lights on his car because he had also thought that it was rather strange too. I have sat on this info for quite a long time now, so I thought that I should at least mention it to someone....

I have just finished reading the book Bad Date. I feel that the book was well written and paid tribute to a lot of the great people that he describes as missing.

Recently losing one of my friends to a tragic incident I can only imagine the way some of the families feel about their great loss.

Even though I have read the book with great interest, I am choosing not to follow the situation in the Canadian news. I find that the news has a way taking a story and turning it up side down. I donít feel that the missing people are given the respect that they deserve.

It is funny how are Canadian Society is so interested in this topic, but ignores the "Subculture" lifestyle that so many people are involved in.

Bring your drums. Feast afterward. I too am still shocked to hear the names of the women in the media, even after all of the time that has passed. My condolences and heartfelt sympathies to the families of the murdered women and my prayers for the families of the women who are still unaccounted for. This is a tragedy of gigantic proportions and is unfathomable to the minds of most people. It doesn't make sense.

Missing woman belonged to a loving family

Vancouver Sun

February 9, 2004
Re: Nine more women linked to Pickton case, total 31, Jan. 28

Before my sister, Wendy Crawford, became a prostitute and drug user, as The Sun keeps calling her, she was a mother of two beautiful children. She was a sister and an aunt, as well as a great aunt and a friend. She was not on the streets every day selling her body and she did not take drugs all the time.

My sister did not have a history of disappearing. She had a family to raise, but as the kids grew and Wendy was more free to roam, she would go off and do her thing. But someone, be it her children or other family members, would usually have a basic idea of her whereabouts. Yes, she did travel the streets of Vancouver. She did suffer from diabetes and Crohn's disease as well as other health issues that required daily medication.

It was wrong to report that she lived in a rented trailer in Chilliwack. She owned a mobile home and paid pad rental.

The most important issue in this case is the two beautiful children she did her best to raise with what cards life dealt her. Reporters never walked a mile in the shoes of any of these women who suffered tragic deaths, but you quickly label them prostitutes and drug addicts.

My sister raised her children on a welfare budget and anyone who has experienced that can understand that such a minimal amount of money does not always pay the bills and put enough food into their mouths every mouth.

Yes, my sister sold her body on the streets. However, something is drastically wrong when you can call my sister a prostitute for trying to feed her children
while other participants in this act are men who keep their good standing in society. Are they not prostitutes as well?

In 1982, I lost a brother. In 1985, a grandfather died; in 1990, another brother; and, in 1994, my grandmother and my father plus the grandmother of my

In 1999, my sister went missing. Four months later, my mother passed away and, later that year, another grandmother. The year 2002 brought the death of a
cousin and December 2003 my last remaining grandparent.

One month later, the RCMP arrived at my door with the news that my sister's DNA had been found at Robert Pickton's farm.

There are four nieces and nephews in this family who do not have their mother or father or both, plus five of my own children. Over the past few years, I have been a mother, a father, an auntie and a grandmother (Bubba) to all these children. I have one sibling left and the road often feels long and lonely. But I pray to the Lord and ask for His strength, not only for this family, but also for the families of all the missing women who were much more than prostitutes and drug addicts.

We can't lose hope for people or discount their worth as human beings because we find that their actions or way of life are opposed to what we consider the correct way to live. It frightens me to think that such a large number of women disappeared, seemingly, without a trace, and no one, especially the police did anything to solve this until years after the first woman went missing. I know first hand that a person on the margins of society can recover and live a productive life, if help is there when it is wanted and needed. I had struggled with drug addiction, have been on the methadone program and lived on the streets, and worked the streets to live and support my habit. I found that it was a real trap to be in as most people stopped treating me as if I counted, therefore, trying to find resources that could help me in the direction of recovery was very hard. I did eventually get the help that I needed, and I have been clean for over three years and have a good job and now people respect me. I was told by my brother that you couldn't tell by looking at me that I had the past that I did. I know that people are responsible for what they choose to do in life, but I think that we can't make the fatal mistake of considering drug addicts not worthy of rights that we all as citizens are supposed to have. Life is precious. I hope that this terrible tragedy opens the eyes of people. No one and no situation is hopeless. Lets keep an open mind. God bless the families of the missing, I wish that they find some comfort. God bless and protect the people that are still out there and are wanting to find a way back from the edge.

I don't believe Pickton acted alone. Consider the biker connection? Do they not deal in porn and snuff films? Look into the similarities with the Fred and Rose West Case. Might a satanic cult be involved?
My research into "cult" aspect, leads me to conclude that a local satanic coven, has probably used the services of Pickton and friends. Fred West apparently committed suicide before he could be brought to trial.

The Wests had a bar built in their home in Cromwell Street to cater for Rose's clients. With the encouragement from her husband she worked as a prostitute in her home. Fred would video her various sexual encounters. The bar was called "The Black Magic Bar."
According to Rosemary West, it was given this name because several of her clients were black skinned. I really do think she believed that. Maybe it is correct? However, I suspect that Fred gave the bar its name as an in-joke that related to his activities as a caterer for a black magic coven that was (and almost certainly still is) meeting in the Gloucestershire area.
Fred West confessed to several killings, including that of his daughter Heather whose remains were found beneath the patio. I feel that there is something wrong with some of these confessions. He is always rather vague about the actual murder, e.g.,
' long I held her for I don't know, I can't remember because for that few minutes I can't even remember what happened to that extent..'
Yet when he comes to the dismembering and disposal of the corpses, his recall is remarkable. While it is not at all unusual for serial killers to suffer blackouts after their killings, there was no evidence that West was a psychopath. In the case of Dennis Neilson, he lived alone, was a homosexual who couldn't bear to see his partners leaving the next day, and he was always in a drunken stupor when he killed - hence the blackouts!
During his interviews with the police, as outlined in Masters' book, Fred West told them that they now had a "vast amount of the truth." He further commented,
'And what I'm saying is, for God's sake put it together... My life means nothing to you, but it means a lot to me... and if the police sorts it out then I haven't said anything.'
So despite his dire predicament he was frightened of the consequences if he named names. He told a journalist that he was covering for others. When asked who these others were, he said that it would all come out eventually.
My contention is that Fred West was silenced before he could get into a courtroom for the simple reason that "the others" could not allow him to be questioned in open court.
Fred West was assisted by his brother and at least two other friends in various sexual assaults on, and rapes of many of the victims. However, this was not murder. His brother John West was arrested and charged with multiple rape and was due to appear in court when, well would you believe it...he was found hanged!! His "suicide" happened only ten months after Fred's.
It is unlikely that Fred West was a member of the coven. According to Dr. Murray, commenting on another witchcraft killing, the famous Pitch-Fork Murder of farm laborer Charles Walton at Lower Quinton (only 40 miles from Hagley Wood),
'It was even suggested that Charles Walton was the member of a coven and that he was sentenced to death for revealing its secrets. That is nonsense ... I assure you the modern practitioners of witchcraft, inside or outside of covens, are not to be found among hedgers and farm laborers. They come mainly from the professional classes...'
Professional classes ..... like, for example, a senior police officer? Did Fred West supply the sacrificial victims for a local coven and then dispose of them after the rituals were over, minus their finger bones? He swore that he did not remove any bones from the bodies. He also, eventually, swore that he never killed the women found under the grounds of his house. Maybe, in the end, he was really telling the truth....but nobody was allowed to listen.

As a result of the dateline documentary in canada i am feeling now feeling that the United States have more empathy regarding this case than Canada. Perhaps its because of the people That are' involved that the States are not afraid to speak of this case , and the people in question are not afraid to speak?????????????

Spending a Sunday with my family, thanking god for what I have.... then realize what I've been through and who I've come across in my life. I grew up on the streets in Victoria and I made it out alive and with the experince that you can't learn in any school. I met Cathy Knight in my travels, knew her in school and knew her on the street as well, I know her older brother from Esquimalt and had know idea that there life was as rough as it was, reading the article on the internet (Times). I was lucky I had help getting it together one person imperticular a Victoria police officer I grew up with in middle school, basketball team mates and then later he showed up in my life picked me up took me for a drive and showed me there was people who care , it wasn't just his job it was that he was a human who cared for another, I got straight, I got married, got 2 great kids. As life has it I move over to Vancouver get work ,few years goes by then through work I meet Willy Pickton, working at Children's Hospital doing demolition for Dave his brother. I'm sickened by all the things that has happened to the people who have it so rough when growing up, to the point of a terrible end. What can we do as human beings to better this? ,I don't know, I'm happy I had someone help me ( thank you Darren you made a differce) So i guess what I'm tryin to say there is things we can do and we should.........

You will never be forgotten
Or erased from my mind
You didn't have the best life
But to me you were one of a kind

Your picture reminds me everyday
With memories of the good times we had
The love you felt for our family
Even though your life was so very sad

The happy way about you
The kindness that you would share
To all that were around you
Even when you were in despair

Your eyes showed the sadness
Of the many years of pain
You stayed away from your family
So they wouldn't feel the strain

Your lifestyle was not sought after
And most looked down upon you
But you made do with what you had
Where most would not continue

All of a sudden you went missing
We desperately looked around
We knew something was terribly wrong
We wouldn't stop until you were found

The most important thing to us
Was that you were alive
When you stopped calling us
Something just didn't jive

Hopefully people realize their acts of judgement
Were so carelessly misplaced
And now they will see the daily horror
With which you were faced

Although we couldn't protect you
You were always in our heart
And that is all we are left with
For now we are apart

The saddest thing to have to fathom
Is the brutality of your demise
How someone could just take your life
And watch as your soul dies

Instead of saying goodbye
I will have to say so long
Till we meet again my beautiful sister
This will be your song

I visited Vancouver, B.C., for the first time last year, what a beautiful city/province. The first thing I was told when I arrived, was to STAY AWAY from the lower East side, because of the drug addicts and prostitutes. And out of fear I did exactly that, I dismissed the lower East side. And I believe in this case the VPD DISMISSED the inhabitants of the lower East side....... because the ENTIRE Vancouver society on a consistent and daily basis is guilty of DISMISSING these people (and after reading many of the life stories of these ladies, MOST were DISMISSED longgg before they arrived on the corners of Hastings, turned their first trick or injected that heroine filled syringe, as children society/family/communities often dismissed them and let them down). Almost every Vancouver citizen and the police obviously feel that these prostitutes lives were not as signifcant as the lives of their own daughters, sisters, mothers, wives, girlfriends,etc. and therefore could so easily dismiss them and their lives and thier stories.
My favourite quote is: THE OPPOSITE OF LOVE IS 'NOT' HATE BUT.... "INDIFFERENCE"!!!!!!!!!!!!
When are we ALL going to wake up and realize that we are all interconnected. That what happens in the lower east side (any fringe society) affects us all, eventually. Just as we learned from Sept 11/2001 that YES what happens in some far away poor little country (Afganhistan) is OUR business and yes will and can affect us. These predators like Picton, may start off killing drug addicted, diseased, prostitutes (easy targets, because society is so indifferent towards them and didnt give a damn) because they have so much hate/contempt/rage towards women....but dont be so naive as to think that in time they wont turn to YOUR/OUR/MY drug free, non prostitutes, sisters, wives, daughters, mothers.
Let this be a lesson that INDIFFERENCE towards anyone in our society can never be tolerated ever again. Dont let these women die in VAIN! Let us never DISMISS one another ever again. We are our brothers keeper!
May the souls of these ladies RIP.

I am reading each and every bit of information on each of the woman posted on this site and the sadness just keeps getting larger. I wish I would have grown up with a lot of these woman or met them later and become friends or at least met them. Some have little background posted unfortunately and fortunately there is a lot of pictures and information on others. I really wish I had been brought up in Point Grey and of the same age as Sarah Devrie. I know we would have connected. I had a painful youth and became addicted to alcohol and drugs at the same time as her. Maybe she would have been wilder than me, maybe not but I know I would have been in there as a loyal friend as I was to some girls I did 'do teens' with who were ostracized from the cliques as I was. I had friends similar to Sarah but was sheltered from places like the DTE. I grew up in a small town on the pairies and often say that saved my life. I would have been drawn to the eastside like these women were. Although, I wasn't as creative as Sarah I was/am as spunky and funloving BUT hated superficial people and those who thought they were better than others. I wish I had met these girls in recovery. I have met so many like them - kind, generous coming from places of pain etc. etc. Some have made it and others not. I will never stop speaking my truth to women whether they are in recovery or still in hell. I will never forget Sarah, Jacqueline, Marnie, Inga, Heather Bottomley, Diana, Cindy, Andrea/Angela, Tiffany, Georgina, Tanya, Sherry, Jennie, Helen, Sereena, Mona, Dianne, Brenda, Patricia, Angela, Heather Chinnock and all the other woman who disappeared while I have lived in Vancouver these last 16 years.

My sister is Catherine Maureen Knight, she is one of Vancouver's missing women. She was the baby in our family of nine children, and I still see her in my mind as this bright bubbly child. Who knew what path she would take in life. She disappeared 8 years ago now, and still we hang on to hope that some link to her whereabouts will be discovered. Even though they have Robert Picton up on charges, the real sad thing I think will be that we will never really know what went on at that Pig Farm. Will her DNA show up somewhere so we can lay her to rest in our hearts? I don't think so. Like the rest of my family we now live with the idea that she is in a better place, but this reality of human cruelty does make one look at life more carefully. My heart goes out to all the other family members as they too go through this.

I think Mr. Leng is doing a great job of showing these ladies as HUMANS AND LOVED ONES, not just hookers and drug addicts. God bless you, Mr. Leng, and the families of the victims.

Hi Wayne, I would like to thank you for this site once again. When I first started looking for my little cousin, two yrs ago. I thought I would find some help on the internet and low and behold I found this site. I couldn't believe the amount of women that had disappeared. It scared me to death. I thought Patty was in another town, swinging on a porch swing thinking of her children and family and soon would return healthy and happy. Instead her dna was found at the farm where many other women had lost their lives. I will never understand why the police had waited for so long. My little cousin deserved to have a second chance at life. To repair the pain inside and find peace within herself Patty would have had a beautiful life. Patty may have been nothing but a prostitute/drug user to some but Patty didnt have to put on a different face. Her beauty was inside and out. Was I there for my cousin, no. I let her down I know I did. I thought she would get her act together, grow up and maybe one day, our children would play and we could put this behind us. By the time I wanted to help, it was to late. I have realized there are so many resources out there that can help family members through the process of getting them well. Just supporting there loved ones when it is needed.
Our thoughts and prays are with the Bryce family we hope you are doing well. Patty, I love you and miss you very much...
Love you forever and always, Jeanette

I am absolutely disgusted by this entire case. How could a police department allow the number of women missing from a single city area grow to such an immense number? It's disgusting because the root of this case is simple: these were women and prosititutes, making them among the most worthless people in the eyes of our society. If this were rich white kids, there would've been only one allowed to go missing before the police will all over the case. But instead, these poor undervalued and ignored women were allowed to become prey for a serial killer. It's about time that our society recognized that all people are valuable and that these women deserved every right to protection that anyone else did. I am ashamed to be a citizen of this community and ask for forgiveness from the loved ones of these women for our society's ignorance and cruelty. I pray that all of you get the answers you need and hope you know that your loved ones will not be forgotten..

I first became familiar with this site 24 months ago. I find it commendable that you have put together a contral site that contains most media stories and vast amounts of personal info on these women. I think this site has been a major impetus in getting things moving on this case.
The entire story of all the women who have disappeared on the downtown eastside is overwhelming in it's scope and tragedy. I live in Vancouver, so I am greatly disturbed by the inaction of local police and civic government. The truly horrid factor in all this is that the case could have been solved several years ago, had there been even a minimum humanity here. But there isn't so it wasn't so Vancouver gains a new found and much deserved reputation as "the heart of darkness".

I would like to start off my sending my sincerest thoughts and prayers to those whom have a loved one on the missing person list. I cannot imagine the pain that you go through everyday.
I am constantly drawn to this site over and over. I review each and every victims' picture and profile with the saddest feeling in my heart.
My boyfriend (at the time) visited Vancouver in 1994. It was a test to see if we could tolerate each other on a one month, constant basis. (married and still together) But, the wake up call here is, when we arrived in vancouver, the Social Services was the first place to visit. They immediately set us up at the Hotel Washington on Hastings Street. Just across from the Carnegie Library. Anyhow, both my husband and I saw this lifestyle as a real shock and surprise. We had never expereienced anything like it. Back in 1994 the street was hopping with lots of activity and the bustle of commotion. We used to go down the street(towards downtown) where we used to eat Donairs at this little restaurant on Hastings. It is truly hard to imagine that we had been in the same district as these two menances to society, scum of the earth, filthy pigs. Although we were there as tourists (30 day pass on Greyhound Bus) it was still an expereince wot witness this form of lifestyle. I could never explain some of the things that I saw. In Chinatown we actually saw one girl screaming and fighting for her life, gettin gout of a white van. Could it have been?? Who's to say. maybe I was confronted by one of these pigs as I went outside so innocently to get water from the fountain in front of the library. During our 3 week stay at the Hotel Washington, I befriended a sex trade worker, her name was Shelly. i think she had a baby in the small living quaters that was provided. She used to borrow my curling iron before going out. I often wonder what ever happened to her. I hope things turned out good for her, she was intelligent and had a future in front of her.
Now, in April 2002. Married and more grown up. We headed out on a road trip to Tofino, BC. It was a must that we went down that lost and forgotten street. Althoug it was daytime as we passed, not much has seemed to change. There was fewer people on the street and many of the stores etc have been boarded up. I also wanted to go to the farm. but, we also wanted to see the eagles at Squamish, the opposite direction (little did we know that there are no eagles in April) OR else we could have seen this Penticton Farm. Again, my condolenses to all the familes of each missing woman on the list.
May the creator guide you and give you strenght to carry on.

The Justice System has failed these womens families, providing them the right to the information through,
Freedom of the Press and Charter of Rights in the media/press in Canada. I find it difficult to see the Womens' families degraded and shamed in such a disgraceful and disgusting manner of ill-repute, respect and consideration for those of the families of their lost ones!

I am so sorry to hear the news that Marnie has been found, yet at the same time relieved that your wait is over. I was in CR the weekend the news broke and I really wanted to pay my respects to you in person, but I did not want to intrude in your hour of grief. Had I known there was to be a memorial for her yesterday, please know that I would have come home to see Marnie at peace at last. Every day my heart breaks for you all, and for the carefree girl I once knew. I am so sorry for your loss and I hope that monster will soon be charged with Marnieís Murder, and we can finally see justice done. There have been 2 murders near my home in Maple Ridge in the past few weeks, and an attempted break in into my condo, while I was in bed for the night. The terror of the streets seems to be everywhere these days and I often wonder what has become of us all? I will never, ever understand what could drive someone to take another personís life without a second thought. Although I know we only met once years ago, when Marnie and I were still just little girls really, my thoughts and prayers are with you and Marnie every day.

I hope you can find peace.

I just want to say that I worked in Vancouver BC in the years that these ladies went missing and I new a lot of them as I worked in the hotel buisness and worked right there where the girls went missing,I feel
very bad that Robert Pickton was sick to the point of going to the point of killing all thes girls.I also owned a house in Port Moody and road my motor bike out in PoCo where Robert's farm was.
I served him and spoke to him at different times while being on duty at the Ballmoral Hotel at Main and Hastings Street in Vancouver.
What drives a man to go this far? I think that this is a case where when this man dies ,his brain should be taken apart and studied to see what causes a man/women to go to this point.
In this day and age there are more than enough women ther that will go with you for free sex and any kind of kinky sex that you could think of, then each go there ownway.Why would you have to kill anyone after having a good time with them.This can only be caused by being very SICK and should be studied befor and after this man dies.I am no expert on any kind of crime ,but i do think that anyone that does this kind of thing should be studied to the fullest.
My hart goes out to all and any person to do with any of this sad case.

After the poor Chinese student was tragically found dead, why hasn't she been added yet to the list of murdered Vancouver women?

Her disappearance and murder has been generating headlines in greater Vancouver over the last two months. So I'm disappointed that this web page hasn't made any mention of that incident.

My heart goes out to these victims and their families. Glad to see that someone cares enough to make a web site so they didn't die in vane with out any rememberance. I thank god for being so fortunate to have been spared such a life style and will probably never quite understand their pain and agony they must have felt each day. I can only pray for them all and hope some day justice served and they find peace where ever they may be. May god keep them safe in a better place and give their families all the strength that they need to move on in life

Hi, Approx sixteen years ago I knew Helen Hallmark. I was going through a very confusing, tough time in my life. It would have been very easy for me to turn to drugs and prostitution. It was because of several people, Helen being one of them that I did not. When I met her I did not do drugs and she and her friends took me under their wing and basicaly sheltered me, preventing me from entering the lifestyle. I remember going to her place for dinner one night and we had pork chops and brussel sprouts and after she laughed and said we should have ordered pizza. When I saw her picture in the paper I was so sadenned. She did not look like the Helen I remembered. She was beautiful. I have gone on to nursing school and I plan to work in the downtown eastside when I graduate. I want to help people like Helen and others like her as much as I can. It is my way of paying them back because I could have so easily gone down the same path. To Helen's family I would like to offer my deepest sympathy as well as send my condolences to all the other families. Rest in peace Helen

I went to high school in Port Coquitlam and it was a common rumour, that men and women were being fed to the pigs. That was back in the early 70's. I had been to Pickton's once with a boyfriend, but never got out of the truck. I know in my heart his brother has everything to do with this and it was rumoured that the hells angeles would feed their hits to the pigs. Also a friend of mine has just been added to the this list, my heart just broke, this is sooo painful. Tanya Emorey, she was not a sex trade worker, but did hang around downtown and known to hitch hike to town from Surrey. I guess the last ride she took, she made it to heaven..

I am terribly saddened by the dissappearance of Diane Rock. I had met her in the spring of last year, during a 6mo. course we were taking at a private college in Surrey. Diane was sweet, quiet and troubled by her past and quest into the future. She tried very hard to put on a big smile every day and made a great effort to become a close friend with myself and one of my other class mates. We did our best to comfort her and hoped that she would get past all of her troubles. She was frequently away from school and we had spent many days wondering if this was the day she wouldn't return to class. This woman was sincerely caring and gentle, and did not deserve the fate which met her. I hope that pickton pays for this, I will forever carry a heavy heart and a memory of a friend I once had for a very short time. I give her family my best regards and wish that they could have shared more time with her.
Diane rock, this is for you.
You are an angel, a sweet being who despite all of your fallbacks and trials, made a difference and continue to make a difference for me and all who were touched by your presence. We will miss you and hope that your days in heaven are brighter.

My cousin Mike Reed, came to visit family members here in Vancouver, back in the 90's. No one has seen him since. How would I go about reporting him missing and how could I get a dna sample to the police without them getting all ignorant or something? They never listen when they should. In fact, the Vancouver police seem to have a prejudgement about ANYONE who is infortunate enough to end up living in the DTES. It seems, to them we are all garbage they would like to send over a cliff or something. When we try to make a report they get extremely ignorant with us. In the past they have refused to act on bonified tips and (it seems)anyone who tries to tell them anything useful, winds up missing next. Why doesn't someone do something about the Palace of pigs on the corner of Cordova and Main? Don't we in this community count as human?

With the police in this neighborhood making claims about the lifestyles of the missing women, before their bodies have even been found, it leads one to believe that they MUST have inside infromation from quite a while back.

My sister was picked up by Willy. She was even at the farm once while a detacthment of DTES police, partied on BBQ with Willy at Piggy's Palace. Maybe that is how they know so many facts about women whose bodies have not been found.

That leaves me to worry about the women who are now going missing off sides of mountains. i can't help but wonder, will I be next.

I know the Premier, Shamble Campbell, doesn't like the poeple in my neighborhood, especially if they are on welfare. I don't want to be on welfare, but I am afraid if I take a job which I already know I cannot keep for long due to my health concerns, I will not be able to recieve any sort of help when I have to quit. I am afraid that that will make me a target for whomever is throwing these women off cliffs.

If you know of a job opening for a web/graphic designer please let me know before I either starve to death or "accidentally" fall off some cliff around here with a little help from those who "CLean up" the neighborhood. "Police FORCE"?

PS. the number of missing is sure to rise to a staggering amount.

I just wanted to congratulate you on an excellent site, and your tireless efforts in regards to looking for Sarah and many of the other women. I was crushed to read that her DNA was located on the Pickton farm.

I live in Calgary, Alberta, and don't know any of the people involved, but I've been keeping track of this horrific situation for some time, and am not the slightest bit surprised at the current count of murder charges filed on Pickton. It's far from over. Personally, I do not feel that he acted alone, and I have no doubt that there were other individuals privy to this disgusting situation.

If anything good comes out of this, I honestly hope that the general public will develop a more constructive level of compassion for people in the sex trade as human beings - with family, friends, feelings, dreams, and disappointments. Christ understood this.

Prostitution doesn't just happen. It's created through a series of events. People are threatened by what they see, because it represents something (sinister) in their perception. Well, the lifestyle is sinister, but that label shouldn't automatically be placed on the woman/man involved. Each personal story is complex - some make it out, some don't. Some stay out, some don't. The world (and all of us in it) can't fix these women's lives, but we can continue to give them the tools and support necessary to keep trying.

Thank you for painting the picture of Sarah for the world to read.

About eight months ago or a bit longer I was in a fast food place waiting for an order with my daughter and I started looking at the paper. I came across a huge spread with pictures of all the missing women. I thought that one of the missing women looked like someone I had met once or twice. To my shock as I read the names( by the way the original women I thoughtI Knew, I did not.)I read a familar name. I looked at the picture and almost couldn't reconize my old friend. I started to cry and my daughter asked what was wrong. I showed her the picture and told her my story. My story was about Helen Hallmark. Her and I had grown up together in Maple Ridge. I would sometimes make the trip to Vancouver with her. Even though Helen was younger then me, it seemed she knew a whole world out there, that I didn't even know existed. What I remember the most is Helen always made me laugh. Her eyes would sparkle and her smile was contagious. Over the years we sort of lost contact as I went on with my life and she with hers. I do remember her coming to my house and asking me to hold onto her new Back In Black AC/DC album when we were quite young. Which I did and still have. When I got home from my outing with my daughter I went straight to my photo albums and found a picture of Helen and another friend from when I think she was about 14 or 15. This now sits on my mantle. I explained many things to my teenage daughters(who by the way think they know it all)about my relationship with Helen and some of our times togther. I hope some how that I've reached them. Also I like the new picture of Helen that is now in the papers. That is how I remember her, very pretty. If a memorial or service is held for Helen I would love to go and pay my respects to an old friend. I miss you old friend

This is my third entry in the guest book , I hope there is alot of room in here , cause I feel alot better after writing in here , rather than just keeping my feelings inside. Thank you Angela for replying to my 2 nd entry , I really feel for your whole family . It bring tears to my eyes every time I read your entrys , but I am glad some one took the time to write about who Patty was , rather than knock her for being where she ended up . In my first entry I wrote of how I remembered her and all and I read your entrys over and over and alot of similarities in what you remember of Patty , and what I remember of her ( except she wasn't my flower girl or niece ) . You are right when you say , people think back about highschool chums and wonder , Patty often popped into my mind , everytime I went through my photo album and saw her picture , the one of her in a red mock neck top , hair down and she is wearing a chain on top of the shirt , I pulled it out and read the back " To Lana , hi I hope you like this picture cause I don't . Friends forever Patti" . I don't know if i will ever write " friends forever" again , cause forever is WAY TO SHORT .....
When people pass on people have a way of only remembering only the good or only the bad , and with Patty it is true , she wasn't only a great family member , she was also a great friend , never changed to impress her friends " her real friends " . It is just unfortunate that SOCIETY didn't get to see the Patty we knew , cause then she would have been Patricia Rose Johnson , not Patricia Rose Johnson from the seedy downtown eastside. I hope people read this and know that was a girl that had all the potential in the world and a heart that was solid gold .
As for Patty talking about a Lana from school that would have been me , I was the only Lana from grade 8-12 in Templeton & Van Tech ( except for one oriental girl ) . Marion & my Dad have mutal friends ( Terry Ryan ) and my Dad knew Marion , at one time in life , he can't pin point exactly where , cause he says that , that time of his life was a little blurry . You could ask Marion though , and I am sure her and Terry Ryan could figure that out . On that note my dad also knew Patty as well , my birthday partys , sleepovers , and having to pick me up from Marions Apt. etc ,etc. and he is just as stunned when ever he reads and see's her on t.v , and I told him about this page and he wanted to give his deepest sympathy to you and your family and he said to say he has said prayers for you all and will continue to . He used to call Patty " Shaky " , he remembers her so clearly , he started calling her shaky after a time he picked her up to come to one of my birthday partys and she was vibrating she was soooo excited , he thought she was going to go through the roof , do you remember how she would get sooo excited ? It was funny . He thought she too was a great kid and feels sick to his stomach as well , that something soooo horrific could happen to her .
Well I think I have taken enough space up today so I will end this entry for now , and I will write back . Angela , maybe we could exchange e mail addresses or phone numbers , just to keep in contact and maybe just talk about Patty and remember her ( if you are ok with that ) , I don't know how the private entry works but , I could leave my phone # or e mail address in there if you have access.
I would also like to know , if there will be a memorial or type of service for Patty , as I would like to go and pay my respects.
Thanks for your time and reply ....

This is in response to Lana W's article. I am Patty's Aunt. I was touched that you think about Patty so much. I think about her no matter where I am as well. I will never stop loving her, thinking about her or praying for her ( and that old Willy gets what is coming to him). It does make you stop and think though doesn't it. Why her, why any of them. It is like wondering what happened to old school chums, I do that. You certainly don't expect to see them all over the news and on the internet saying "Missing" and then " Robert Pickton will be charged with 1st degree murder in the cases of four more today" and then Patricia Johnson's name pops up. It just does not seem real. I know that it is. But, I don't know. I am sure all of us got into some trouble when we were younger, like in our younger teens, when you knew Patty. You just don't expect it to turn out like this, do you know what I mean? Like I said before, it is really hard for me to wrap my mind around, especially when it comes time for the actual trial. I want to remember Patty as goofy, loving, full of life all the time, loving her kids so much, loving her family and us loving her forever. Thanks for the message in the guestbook. I kind of remember her mentioning many years ago a Lana that she used to hang around with. Take care and god bless.

I can't help but come to these pages on the missing women , evey time turn on my computer . I automatically go to Patricia Johnson ' s picture and sit for hours in awe , it is like looking at her picture for the first time every time . I guess when I come to these pages I am looking for answers who , what , where , when & ESPECIALLY WHY !? You look back and see when the first women to be reported missing was actually reported , and you think if some thing would have been done then , maybe , just maybe these other women would've have had a chance , especially Patty ( reported missing March /2001).
I have so many questions , that I would love to have answered , and I am just an old buddy who knew Patty in our early teens . I can't imagine the questions that rage through the minds of her family , ( or the minds of other family members who have a missing loved one ) . I just feel sooo deeply for you all who have a loved one missing. It just breaks me aprat when I think of all this , and you can't stop thinking of it , I can be doing the dishes , driving in my car , grocery shopping , watching t.v etc , and it always has a way of popping up in my mind. I really hope that everyone gets the answers and closure that they need . My heart & prayers go out to you all . GOD BLESS YOU ALL.

This message concerns one whom I had the True pleasure to meet with, a man of absolute courage, his name is Bill Hiscox. What a guy! He is right up against what may be one of the most crude and terrible crimes. May the Lord Jesus protect you, no one else is. This is a man of true courage. Hurry up Police and all to finish this appalling crime. Bill we respect you completely Roger.

I went to school with Diana Melnick, I work in the down town east side, the back side alley of hell, I remembered she loved horses, and would never wear her skirt for our uniform, allways in jodhpers, very happy, didnt like mornings, and allways talking about boys, I contacted our school about her, they are praying and sending condolences as well, I dont remember the last time I saw her, but I knew her once I did, we used to hang out in our mutual friends bedroom and listen to heavy metal, and gossip about boys, the dance coming up next, and her boyfriend in Vancouver, I hope someone finds her and brings her home, it is not a nice place to be lost.

With all due respect to the dead. A police officer dies and we change laws and retain the accused without bail. 100 lost souls 'disappear' and the same police forces seemingly do nothing...for decades!!! Where is the JUSTICE I ask! Are not ALL humans equal? We are indeed a sad society. I pray things will become better. In my heart I doubt it. History shows our inhumanity towards humankind. Abuse, addiction greed and corruption at all levels of society. When will the evil stop? When will we learn to respect and stop the abuse? I have much respect for those who have become clean. I hope they find the strength to remain clean and sober forever! God help this sick world...It is good to see a grass roots organization coming forth with such a webpage dedicated to the lost women. We all share in their family and friends sorrow. I am not alone in my feelings of helplessness. What can the average man do to help put a stop to this sort of evil? After all it seems predominately the males who perpetrate these crimes against humanity.We must help stop this cycle of abuse. Keep up the good work. Live the GOOD life!Respect all! Speak truths! Expose cover ups! Change the laws that protect the guilty and isolate/alienate the innocent victims...

I Just wanted to express my heartfelt sorrow for Marnie's family. In my early teens I counted Marnie as one of my friends. We used to hang out, and walk home from school together, as we lived right around the corner from eachother. The Marnie I remember was always full of laughter, and quick to smile, she was a good friend.I remember hearing a rumor years ago that Marnie was working the streets in Vancouver, and not being willing believe it, but feeling so sad for her if it was the truth. I was devistated when I first saw Marnie's picture among the missing women's list, and I am so sorry that your family has had to endure the pain of having her missing all these years. I pray that you will soon find out what has become of Marnie, and that you can finally find some peace. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

I will never forget the first time I read the paper and saw the list of missing women , I was in total misbelief and shock when I came across the name Patricia Rose Johnson.

We were just starting our grade 8 year at Templeton High School , and we hit it off , we became good buddies . If you knew Patty , you would know how silly & fun to be around she was , she could make you laugh with out even trying. We had a great time together hanging out and talking about eveything under the sun , ( especially boys and who our crush of the week was ) . I remember Patty being so full of life , and her energy drew you to her , it made you want to be apart of her excitement .

We got older , I switched schools and moved out of the area , and we slowly lost contact. So I haven't had talked to her in years . I bumped into her cousin ( Billy ) years ago , and obviously asked about my old buddie Patty , he told me of her 2 kids , and how she was and all . That was the last time I had heard anything about Patty , until this Missing Womens Investigation started .

I look back in my photo album , and stare at her wallet size pictures we had traded in school, and think of how innocent we were then , and how someone could take her innocence away . Regardless of her lifestyle , she was a good hearted person , a daughter , a mother , a big sister , a niece , a grandaughter , a cousin , a friend , and a good soul . It angers me that such a thing as this could happen to Patty , to any of the missing women , to anybody.
I could go on forever about how tradgic this really is , but I would rather think of how lucky I was to have my old bud Patty in my life , as short as it may have been , we had nothing but good times and I thank her for them , and I will forever cherish the memories.

My heart and prayers go out to Patty's family and friends , I can't imagine the pain & heartbreak you are feeling at this time , but I do feel for you all .


Love an old friend ;
Lana W xoxoxooxoxoxo

P.S: If anyone knows if there will be a service for Patty , could you please leave the information on this site , I will check every day at least 3 times . Thank You .

my message today is of mixed emotion. I was waiting for the day that they would lay charges against Pickton for what he did to my niece and it finally happened. Patricia Rose Johnson, and as everybody puts it, from the seedy downtown eastside. Well I knew a different Patty, loving, caring, probably a bit naive to a fault. But that girl had everything going for her and yes she did end up on the streets. My heart breaks when I think about her. She was my flower girl at our wedding 13 years ago and all she wanted was to be loved. She was a good kid and yes she ended up in a not very nice place but I will always remember her as full of spirit and vitality and a very very decent human being. I see these pictures on the web site and it is like "that can't be her", but I know it is. Patty, I just wanted you to know that Uncle and I will always and forever love you sweetie!

We all feel for the family and friends of the missing women of Vancouver. It must be extremely frustrating to see the current police investigation to finally get to where it is today, however all we can do is await the final result of that investigation. We have to have faith in the Criminal Justice System and hope that the system holds the persons responsible to be accountable for their actions. There is nothing that we can do to bring these women back, but we need to keep their memories alive and strong. The website for the missing women is just one of the ways that we can do this and bring everyone together to talk about their feelings and express their concerns.

It is surprising to see the increasing number of individuals who have gone missing in recent months around the province and have not yet been found.

Regards to friends and families of the missing women of Vancouver.

As a former Scotland Yard Detective I am appalled at the lack of Professional poice work attributed to the local and Federal police in this case. This man was a suspect right off the bat. Does this not demonstrate how far we have come?. No one gives a damn anymore. They are all too concerned about their careers and less about the public. Forget the rules!!!! go after these SOB's. PROTECT THE PUBLIC.Nail this guys ass. What a world we live in. This is the year 2002 and we have gone nowhere fast. It is easier to locate a stolen vehicle than a child or a woman.

Cindy Louise Beck was my best friend in elementary school. I was informed today (July 2, 2002) that she was one of the women found at the 'pig farm'. During the past 6 hours I have cried, pulled out old year books and photos. She would have been 37 on April 17, 2002. I remember this from playing skipping as a child and have never forgotten it. The last time I saw her was at my wedding on March 22, 1985. She had cut her hand on a broken mirror.
Personally I think that she had a hard time accepting the fact that she was adopted, although her parents loved her. She was such a beautiful girl...I often envied her. When she was in grade 5 or 6 I pierced her ears. Years later she wanted me to cut off her long hair, which I did. We thought she looked stunning.

I still can't believe it is real.

Since the moment that I started reading everything in your website, I haven't been able to dry my eyes. I had no idea that this existed and over the past few weeks have been getting quite angry that nothing had been done to tell people of the personal lives of these women..who they really are...This site is truly amazing and I had to write something to you, so my voice of gratitude and sincerity could be heard. On a personal note, my mother was a prostitute and drug user...but I never saw her that way. She was my MOM...a feeling, caring, warm, compassionate, loving woman with a heart of gold. She had a drug addiction..but she was still a person. I would also like to say that I am happy to hear that these women's families are starting to take action against the Van.P.D. I am totally disgusted with them, and have been right from the start. If these women were what society calls "normal well-adjusted" individuals, the police would have taken action years ago...should I say 'more' action, 'more' effort. Thank you for listening, and all the best in regards to the detox center you are trying to start up. I think it is a wonderful and smart idea. Sincere and heartfelt wishes to each family member. God Bless.

Wayne, I was just wondering:
Sarah DeVries, who I feel I have a connection with in my heart somehow, I was wondering why if she lived in such a nice area of Vancouver was she going to the Downtown Eastside. What was she like as a teenager?
Can you tell me what her personality was like? Was she the really popular girl in school?

Next question: Why did they go take drugs? Especially heroin, ect, people here have no respect for them because they sold their bodies and took hard drugs. Why did they do that? Also, are prositutes scary to talk to? Do they seem, regular or normal at all? Because I would want to go to Vancouver and hear their stories. I just finsished "Bad Date" I ordered it a couple weeks ago, and haven't put it down. I want to be like Trevor Greene when I grow up.

My own take on things is based on experience and I believe experience to be our grandest teacher. With that, I honour it - no matter how horrendous some of my own experience has been. I share my conspiracy theories here because I simply can not talk about it anywhere else. It's the first time I've been able to release some of what I know.

I haven't seen any interviews or anything, but I will take your word that they incriminated themselves. The only thing i have really heard was my friend talking about heather on the news; i didn't even see that as they didn't air it (so far as i know) where i live, i only heard it while she held the phone close to her tv as we were talking when it came on.

you aren't being judgemental, you are 'being angry'. You sound as though you are extremely informed - and intelligent. i wouldn't worry about offending people at this point. i look forward to your posts as i really don't know much - as i've said - except for what is on the net.

Thanks for your response Kelly - the people I also find particularly disgusting are the women used to lure the girls to Pickton. Gina Houston talks like a women desperate for attention and Dinah Taylor finds humour in it all. It's too bad these women had to buy into the idea they were important and powerful. I will be happy to see them both arrested as accomplices as I believe them to be. The very first interview Gina Houston did on 2/5 I was shocked at how often she incriminated herself. The same was true for Dave Pickton. They both fell for the limelight and spoke like the total illiterates they are.

Several families have been in contact with the law firm that handled the OJ Simpson case. At first I couldn't relate to their choice then I remembered how they successfully prove the LAPD was riddled with racists and he actually won the case because they proved he had been set up.

I saw the womens sister interviewed by, I think, CBC or our Victoria station here. She said the task force contacted her about DNA not matching the others (as I've wrote). She and her Dad will be travelling to Van to provide their DNA. The best news I've heard yet is the families are pursuing legal action with a high profile US lawfirm. This is the action that will produce faster results than even the investigation I think because it's a win/win in the sence this firm can pore tons of $$ into investigating the VPD and the publicity will put the law firm in a humanitarian position that should be the mission statement for all law firms. I am very happy about this. We need action NOW. The forensic part of this investigation could go on and on, as will the court case. We need to send a message worldwide that women can no longer be marginalized by this mans world. We desperately need a voice even if it is from a male dominated law firm. Thank God for Americas Most Wanted and their dedication to this case. Thank God for all the people who can rise about mainstream racism, sexism and corruption and cohesion.

The 6th person is a women whose family now lives in the US but she was raised in Port Alberni. The task force told her they have DNA that does not match any of the fifty women. Truth is supremely uncomfortable, I agree, however it assists in living a more enlightened life and if you have a daughter as I do I do not teach her to trust cops or anyone else for that matter. I teach her self-respect and love first and that no one deserves admiration beyond what she has for herself. Of course we were raised to believe cops, doctors, teachers and priests are worthy of the utmost respect. Not so - greed is the mandate of this society so love and admiration for the environment is the only thing left truly worthy of my respect. I can tell you I probably still live with symptoms of post traumatic stress disorder from my experience with a corrupt cop. I now trust no one. I've waited 6 years for some answers to what happened to me since I was an escort for Jet Set and had virgin veins. I met the profile of being an alcoholic and sex trade worker and I knew it was that that caused me to almost lose my life. I will not back down now that the truth is beginning to be exposed. When I tried - I had to hide out for a year and a half on Saltspring Island. I knew Rick Burgess who was in witness protection over there and is a missing biker. The puzzle is starting to be pieced together, slowly but surely.

With all due respect Mrs. Bashi, anger is part of the healing process and there really is no other place where people can vent their frustration about the Missing Women case as well as the larger issues that have caused this event to occur. Without expresses anger and all the legitimate emotions surrounding this situation - nothing will change. Having a place to express one's beliefs, as I has very bluntly, is really important for people such as myself who truly believe a major conspiracy is unfolding. My experience tells me without a doubt this is the case. I realize sadness is part and parcel but there comes a time when the sadness turns to anger. I'm sorry I don't view the world as cheerfully as you do - I wish I could but nothing I see tells me this is world you can be cheerful in. That would be a lie. I can look at our local, national and global world conditions and be satisfied that all is well - it is not. It is a particularly dangerous world for women. I'm not sure what era you are from but something tells me you are an elder with strong religious beliefs - that's great but we need change NOW and anger will drive that change.

I got an e-mail from Ms. Kucheran saying someone else wrote the messages under her name. It would seem plausible judging from the responses here and why would anyone sign their real name after writing a message like that. Whether it true or not I gave her the benefit of the doubt and told her she needs to post here again telling everyone what she told me. Since she has not done that - it's difficult to say if she is being truthful or not. Either way... people can we not focus on what this one person thinks and realize that there are many that think this way. If they did not it would not have taken this long to find these girls. Society in general and particularly in Canada is riddled with double standards, judgement, disdain and a general silent war is going on between taxpayers and benefit recipients. Our government promotes it and our corporations supports it. If only Canada were not influenced by the Brits and US and we stood up for what we know is the better way - this would not happen. Legalize prostitution, legalize marijuana, eliminate the causes of abuse and poverty that drives drug abuse. Find whose bringing it into the country and killing our women. Give women what they deserve. A century ago this would not have happened. Women and children were respected and protected. Today women and children are in constant danger from everything, particularly men - who are the exact ones who are supposed to protect us. Today we need to be protected from them. We have not progressed or evolved. Our society and world is more backward and primitive than it ever has been. Corruption, cohesion and conspiracy are the basis for that and the wanting for more more more. We have come full circle and are starting to imitate our neighbors in the South. Material goods do not represent success and greed is the cause of the conditions we live in today.

I do not believe for a second that "Willy" is the only one involved here - in fact I would even say members of the earlier police force knew about it, Mayor Philip Owen's behaviour regarding this suggests to me he knew something about it and low and behold who was the mayor of Vancouver then - our very popular Campbell. I will venture to say - in this forum - this is a large conspiracy with many peoples blood on their hands. Definately that ignorant & disgusting Gina Houston was involved, her husband was involved. The girlfriend, Dinah Taylor, was involved. The brother and his Angel buddies were definately privvy if not fully involved. Am I worried about writing this - NO! I would do anything to bring these truths to light. I used to work as an escort and had some tangles with a very corrupt cop who 6 years later turns out to be one the original investigators assigned to the missing womens case...I also find the cops that filmed the movie about the girls quite suspect since most of them went missing after that movie was filmed and all the girls in it are now missing or dead. Looking at the promo picture of those cops gave me chills down my spine - especially one in particular. I hope someone who knows something about this angle e-mails me - The idea that snuff movies were made makes sence and the actions of the task force tells me they know some very dismall/confidential information, that it does involve corruption and cohesion on the part of VPD. Snuff movies are Hells Angels style and everyone would have gotten a big payout. As well it would clean up the streets and perhaps the plan of the operation was to instill enough fear they would remain that way. Either way there is much much more to this story and I sit patiently waiting because Pickton is going to crack - he's the fall guy now but wait until he starts talking. Nothing is what it appears to be but truth, love and joy will prevail - it always has and it always will.

I was just in awe of this web page. You can see the passion in every line. Not only is it a tribute but a place to vent, discuss and learn. I was stunned by how it encompasses all. I don't feel like I need to go anywhere else to find the information I need. You really get to know the missing women as human beings not as a news story.

Soap Box

I beleive that if people were to learn more about what makes a person do something as unbeleiveable as this they could stop this from happening again. Somebody like pickton does not just wake up one morning and decide to start killing. Not only killing but also to dehumanize them as well. If you've ever ready any of former FBI agent John Douglas's work or FBI agent Ressler's work you would see that not only could the police have been on to him 5, 10 or more years ago there could have been signs as far back into the teen years.

Sandy, you have some nerve. You are one of the most messed up, cold hearted people I know and I highly doubt that anyone with any heart on here wants to hear your shallow, selfish opinion. I am disgusted that you would even comment about what it's like for the women working on the streets and addicted to drugs, you have no idea what these people go through. If you've finally found a job doing something other than slinging burgers, good for you, focus on your job, your comments aren't needed. I will pray for you though, you need it.

I have answered you in between the message you wrote.

I work in the Downtown Eastside for a very well known Vancouver firm.

=Very early in the morning(5:30am) the downtown eastside core is already jumping with drug dealers and their clientele. You can see the drugged up prostitutes digging in the cracks of the sidewalk looking for a rock of crack that just isn't there.

So they told you this did they??? You are the person they would confide this information to??

=This makes me sick to my stomache, If any of my family members would be living down there I would do just about anything to get them away from it.... ANYTHING!!

And, you think THEIR families didn't?? Who the hell are you to make this assumption? And...learn to spell will ya??duh

=I cant believe it took some 2-3 YEARS to find out they were missing! Obviously they (the missing) were missing from their lives a long before they were actually missing!

Did it now?? I seem to remember that these families and friends of these families reported these women missing and were put off...sheese woman...where the hell are you getting these ideas?

= My heart does go out to the families of these missing women, BUT if they really did care about their loved ones, WHY did it take 2-3 YEARS to actually report them?

Answered lunatic!!!!!!!! What heart?? You have a stone in there...

=What I cant understand is this: How do they get a welfare check if they are homeless?
This I guess has to be addressed before we can actually get a straight answer from our over spending bancrupt government!

Who said they were getting welfare??? And, so what if they were...what has that got to do with their missing idiot statement

=My heartfelt sympathies for the missing,their families and to US the taxpayers!

Buggar you lady...I bet I have paid more taxes in past years then you have your entire life of working.
Give us a break you goof...I would much rather the money be spent solving cases then the high minded politicians who travel,eat and sleep first class taking it from MY taxes. And, if this message is evident of your "heartfelt symapthies" shove them where the sun don't shine.

I read a book called Bad Date, The missing girls of Vancouver's low track. It was very interesting and I know for sure that reading this book make my skin crawl knowing that they would actually give up their own flesh and blood for a DRUG!!! anyhow Just a little note to express my condolences! are an idiot!!!!! I have two words for you but I can't put them here...however, I will leave you with these two words "SEEK HELP" you need it.

Please know that there are a lo of us 0ut here that really care - never mind those idiots that think that because they were street workers that they didn't matter - people just don't realize thaat they ARE PEOPLE - when they see the homeless on the streets THEY DON'T UNDERSTAND! tHEY don't realize that this person was someone's baby once, they see a dirty, drugged or drunk person and they ARE AFRAID OR SOMETIMES EVEN REPULSED! I have to admit, I have felt that way myself sometimes - but i'm only human and afraid too!!!! Sometimes i wish i could help all the homeless - i have a real passion for this cause - we can all do our part - join a church group or something - our church makes about 2000 sandwiches or more every month and i have started to make a huge pot of soup to take to the downtown eastside when they go there - it's only a very small part - but if EVERY one did something to know that these homeless people are loved maybe we can make this world a better place!

I would like to thank you for making this site. It makes me happy to see that there are still people in this world that are willing to do so much.
In regards to Sandra Kucheran's ignorant remarks: Ruby Hardy is my mother and was recently added to the list of missing women. She has been out of my life for years, and believe me, I've tried to find her. I have been forced to wait and hope to hear some word from her. A day doesn't go by that I don't think of my mother. I just pray that she is okay and that she will call the police and say that she's fine. Shame on you for being so callous. You have no idea what it's like. I find it rude and distasteful for you to even try to express your "heartfelt sympathies". I almost feel sorry for you because you obviously have no class whatsoever. If you did, you would never have said the comments that you did. I would never wish any of the pain that my family and the families of the other missing women have experienced. Although, that would be the only way that you could ever understand what we go through, and possibly change your close-minded views. Sadly, I'm sure that you never will.

Wonderful site. Wish more people would get involved with missing people cases "before" it becomes one of their own family members. This seems to be primarily the case here in the U.S. anyway. I keep thinking that if people only could recognize the warning signs of a serial killer then it would be possible to stop them real early in their careers instead of after they murdered a dozen or more. Thanks for all you are doing to educate the public and help stop these murders.

Ms. Kucheran. You are very lucky indeed. Might I suggest a reality check? I see you've had the wherewithall to read Bad Date, but did you really get it? When your skin crawls you have the luxury of closing the book, putting it away, and taking a nice hot shower in your home which is relatively safe, and you can continue your life, work, play. And if something should, god forbid, happen to you or if you need some support for whatever reason you will have people who will help, people who would know that you are not there. Many of these women come from circumstances beyond their control. They don't need any more judgment from any more well-meaning, self righteous, know-it-alls. And we, their families, don't need it either. You, like so many others (so many it numbs my mind and my heart) DON'T GET IT - and maybe you never will. Your condolences and your "heart" needs to go somewhere else, not here -- it's contrived and it makes the big hurts hurt even more. MY heart goes out to you and others like you.... with the hope that you will eventually move from misplaced sympathy to genuine empathy.

Did you grow up in foster care because you had so many behavioural problems which later turned out to be fetal alcohol syndrome? Have you ever had the living shit kicked out of you by the persons who are supposed to love the most? Have you ever had to sleep without a bed or blankets or wait to go to school for a hot meal you are so poor and yet you know you live in the richest country in the world?

I thought not.

It's assholes like you that contribute to the problem. Shame on you for judging these people. Shame on you for not having enough empathy and compassion to realize it is the government and men who have done this and made this mess. Do you know anything about the genecide of our Native people.

It's very obvious; I will now play Nancy Drew;
Hypothetically speaking -

Pickton & associates were Paid by the VPD higher & highest to deal with the rat problem down on's costing us huge doe - problem solved...millions saved in transfer payments, medical. The perfect crime and hey it would improve tourism and imagery right.
The question, at this stage is - Who's involved? How many knew it was occurring and which corrupt cops at VPD surpressed the investigation. This would include the gay looking actors in the movie made about the girls...most of whom are dead. An unknowing rendering company? Distribution of the remains turned into make-up & soap.

Fuck you all you pigs who are involved in this - this message is for the 50 bravest souls in this world and on this planet and for every female that is going to tear this grotesque male dominated society with all your double standards and disgusting ethics.

Dearest creators of this wonderful site, friends and family. My name is Tami Starlight and I am a transsexual woman living in the downtown eastside. I personaly knew about 10 of the women missing(murdered) and I am quite saddened at the lack of humanity in humans on this planet. Yet with this grief, anger and remorse comes a community that will hopefuly come together and get stronger for the rights of women of all walks of life.

Number one....The society is responsible in part for this. As I read about the lack of concern about these women I am appauled at the way the city(vpd) is reacting. I will not be marginalised, minimised and told to go away buy a society that has bigotry, hate, sexism as "THEIR" so called moral agenda.

It seems like the old addage is that dog eat dog rules such as GOd takes care of those who take care of themselves..NOT!!!

GOD(dess) helps those who help each other. In this mad obsessively driven society we live in, has a who gives a s*it attitude and motto will be no longer, as the light always triumphs over darkness.

A society where as the term "the haves and the have nots" will not exsist. There will be peace, and we will take care of our neighbors regardless of age, race, sexual identity and spirituality.

Like the U2 song of their new CD "All That You cant Leave Behind" is about using what we have to make the world a safer and happier place. You cant take it with u, the only thing u will take with u will be peace of mind and a serene heart. It is about what WE can do to make this world a better place to live with each compassionate and understanding and loving moment that we take positive healthy action.

I am getting a little tired of hearing about the haves and the have nots do not have a voice...They do in my life....As I am involved not to help them prostitute better but to show them a way out of a vicious cycle of lifestyles. There are options in name one that is about prostitution is the fact that people can be about an educational fund for street(prostitutes) paying directly to their school. To better themselves in stead of helping then to use more drugs and do more prostitution. For me being a drug addict in recovery I am well aware of the way addiction runs a life. That is how I knew some of these women. They like me either get locked up(jail) Go crazy, or die.

The way to help is to have GOV run safe places for them to go to for help.

This is not a moral issue, like addiction it is a health issue. To help people in a healthy way will save lives and show people a new way to live life a healthy way, providing lots of options to live life differently.

I am very concerned about both civic and provincial governments as their cuts and continued miss treating of those who do need support soo badly...I am basicaly ashamed of the Liberals and Vancouver society as a whole in which I have to say is real sick.

I do however hold great regard to those who have helped(in a healthy way) those who were and are in need. Those are my heros and family. To give a street person a few moments of time and dignity, to give a homeless person a meal and an ear. To pass on information to help them help themselves.

I have done and do all of these things..I care a great deal about people who dont have much..Look around people and get involved in your community.

Many blessings and peace in their hearts as they are out of the pain and suffering of their captors and uncaring society.

Lots of people like myself come from broken homes and disfunctional families. To change our lives we had to believe that whear we were was not healthy and wanted a change.

Lets break the sick cirle and build a new and healthy one.

Love and understanding
Tami Starlight-

I saw a movie on television a couple of weeks ago. It was about drug addicted prostitutes on the east side of vancouver. I can't recall the name of the movie but I think it was filmed quite awhile ago. I noticed one of the girls shoes in the movie were the same shoes I had seen on the news in the back of a old car on the Picton property. The police I'm sure already know this. It's just an observation.

To the families of all the missing women my heart breaks for you. I am really angry. None of this had to happen but it did. The reason it did is because our society is still running around with victorian attitudes about sex and drugs. And women. I wonder what would have happened if these were 50+ missing men? Until our society grows up, and quits treating drug addiction as a sin and flogging programs like "Just Say No or DARE"(both American!) the murders, beatings of these poor addicted women will continue. We, as a society, must treat drug addiction as a treatable illness. Although I think the drug addiction should be treated by your family doctor we have health units all over this province virtually empty. Stigma must be removed and a safe place for these poor sick addicted people to receive their drugs. And to people that say this is legalized drug dealing..I really can't feature someone saying well I'm going to make an appointment with my doctor and get started on crack or heroin. Come on?! I wonder, does anybody think these women LIKE what they have to do to get money for drugs?! While we're at it, since the sex industry is just that, a huge industry, legalize it and tax it. This would provide a safe place for people who CHOOSE to make their living this way. There doesn't have to be any mean streets.
What really infuriates me is the various volunteer-then-paid 'helping groups' that are feeding off the drug/sex problems of B.C. Money spent on real good luncheons but any "client" will tell you these offices close at 4:30 P.M. so much for caring. And, as usual, government feels real good about throwing money at them, whether their mission statement actually does what it says is another thing totally. All these women missing yearly, regularly and all these 'helping agencies' can come up with is that they're pretty sure the missing people did not pick up their welfare cheques!!? Let's call a spade a spade. They do not really care, that stops at 4:30 P.M. about the same time the stroll heats up. Canada must say as a nation we don't care what the americans think, or the british think. These are our Canadians that are being slaughtered and we should be ashamed of ourselves. In my opinion for far too long we have let the prevaling american religious right direct how we deal with our citizens. My daughter has a few friends that are addicted to crack. This just infuriates her because she knows them as friends from school years and now they are beaten down, some involved in break and enters or the sex trade and cracking out. These are her friends and she stands beside them, she says mom they aren't really like that, it's the drugs that make them that way. I am fortunate, so is my daughter and by the grace of God go we. I cannot begin to imagine the shock, horror, rage of the families. All these missing women, be they single mom, welfare, white, First Nations, black, are gone and no one seems to care. Let's not let this horror go to court, feed the press, and then fade away with nothing done, nothing learned, nothing avenged, and the status quo remains. Never mind the soft wood lumber, let's look at our other greatest renewable resource, our people. Take care everyone.

My heart aches for the families of these lost women. Although I had heard of the missing women for so long, it seemed so far removed from my world, that I felt that it would never affect me. Until I heard that Dawn Crey was missing - then it stabbed me right in my heart. She was a good friend of mine when we were kids. Her foster parents are my aunt and uncle, and we would spend so much time together. She had the most wonderful laugh, cute dimples when she smiled, and the most beautiful thick, long, shiny black hair. (I was envious of that hair, because mine was always short, blonde, and messy). When we got older, I would see her on the street in Chilliwack or Abbotsford, and wave and smile, or say hi. When I heard that she was missing I always wondered what took her to the east side - I've now heard her story, and it breaks my heart even more, because of the sad life that she had. She has people that love her, and are missing her - as well as all the other women that are missing. My hope and prayer is that something will be found to be able to bring some closure, for the sake of their families and friends. My prayers are with you all at this time.

What a backward country Canada is at times!! Once again, a very informative site. My prayers to the families and best wishes to the people involved with this site, Sincerely NILA RADWANSKI
