Police tape in Prince George a reminder of unanswered questions

Yellow police tape marks a crime scene in a Prince George park, as police investigate the discovery of human remains found on Friday in the northern city.

The file which has been listed as a suspicious death in Prince George,  which has once again provided a sad reminder that there are still many unsolved cases of missing or murdered women along the Highway 16 corridor.

RCMP are hopeful that an autopsy this week will provide an identification of the female discovered in the park and allow the investigation to move further ahead.

The preservation of what could be a crime scene in Prince George's LC Gunn Park was made as that city's RCMP detachment issued a call for assistance in locating two other women currently listed as missing in the region.

The latest suspicious case has resonated beyond Prince George, with the family of Prince Rupert resident Tamara Chipman speaking out once again to try and find some answers on the disappearance of Ms. Chipman who went missing from the outskirts of Prince Rupert five years ago.

Thanksgiving would have marked her 27th birthday and Gladys Radek, Ms. Chipman's mother was interviewed by CTV British Columbia, expressing the frustration of many parents and family members of the 18 known files stemming from the Highway of Tears.

The CTV BC report reviews some of the details of her case, which like many on the Highway of Tears list has yet to produce many clues, or answers for the families.
