Highway of Tears

Deceased U.S. convict linked to 3 B.C. cold cases

DNA of Bobby Jack Fowler linked to 1974 death of teen Colleen MacMillen

Colleen MacMillen went missing when I was not quite a month old. I can't imagine going 38 years wondering if justice was ever going to be served in the terrible death of a sister or daughter. Bobby Jack Fowler has also been linked by circumstance to two other women - Gale Weys and Pamela Darlington, both killed in 1973 — and remains a possible suspect in as many as 10 others.

The RCMP made these developments public yesterday (Tuesday) to solicit help from the public.

"We believe there are people out there who employed Fowler, worked with him, socialized with him or even waited on him while he was in British Columbia. We are asking you to think back to the 70s, 80s and 90s and your own memories of that that time period, then have a look at his photos, and please call us with any information you may have about him."
There are too many women who have been killed and far too many more who are missing. The fact that they have been able to close one of these cases, especially after so many years, is a testament to modern science's advances. I am also glad that the authorities haven't stopped working on these cases even when it has been 40 years.
