Since the late eighties until the early 2000’s numerous young women have disappeared along a 725 Kilometer section of Highway 16 west, from Prince George BC to Prince Rupert BC. In 2007 the RCMP established the E-PANA investigative unit to investigate the missing and murdered women. The RCMP then expanded the area into a 1500 Kilometer range of Highway 16 east & west and Highways 97 North and South and the timeline was extended to the early 70’s. The victims were predominately made up of indigenous women with some exceptions. None of these cases have been solved. Since 2007 there have been no new cases attributed to the “Highway of Tears” however the investigation continues.

The Highway of Tears is a stretch of highway in northern British Columbia, Canada, that has gained national attention due to the disproportionately high number of women and girls who have gone missing or been murdered along the highway. The route runs for approximately 720 km (450 mi) between Prince George and Prince Rupert, and is the only major highway through the sparsely populated area.

According to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP), since the 1970s, at least 18 women and girls, most of whom were Indigenous, have been murdered or gone missing along the highway. However, Indigenous activists and community members believe that the actual number is much higher and could be closer to 50. Despite the alarming rate of disappearances and murders, the Canadian government has been criticized for not taking the issue seriously and not doing enough to address the crisis.

One of the reasons why the Highway of Tears has become such a dangerous area is due to the lack of public transportation in the region. The highway is the only way to access many of the rural communities along the route, and many people, especially women and girls, have no choice but to hitchhike to get to work, school, or other destinations. This puts them at risk of being picked up by dangerous individuals who have been known to prey on vulnerable women and girls.

Another contributing factor to the high number of murders and disappearances is the issue of systemic racism and violence against Indigenous women and girls. Many of the victims were Indigenous, and the RCMP has been criticized for not taking their disappearances seriously and not investigating them properly. In addition, Indigenous women and girls are more likely to experience poverty, homelessness, and addiction, which make them more vulnerable to violence and exploitation.

In recent years, there have been efforts to address the issue of violence against Indigenous women and girls along the Highway of Tears. In 2016, the Canadian government launched a National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls, which produced a report that called for sweeping changes to address the crisis. The report recommended measures such as increasing the number of Indigenous police officers, providing more support for families of victims, and implementing an action plan to address the root causes of violence against Indigenous women and girls.

In conclusion, the Highway of Tears has become a symbol of the ongoing crisis of violence against Indigenous women and girls in Canada. The high number of murders and disappearances is a tragic reminder of the systemic racism and violence that Indigenous people have faced in Canada for centuries. It is important for the Canadian government to take concrete actions to address the issue, including implementing the recommendations from the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls. Only by taking decisive action can we hope to end the violence and create a safer future for all Indigenous women and girls in Canada.

Here is a list of women who have been murdered and/or disappeared along the Highway of Tears.

E-PANA Highway of Tears Timeline of Victims

The timeline of victims are only those considered by the RCMP. A more extensive list appears after the timeline. A number of these victim are along the highway 16 corridor, but not all.

A day later her body was found by hunters on a cattle trail approximately 10 km west of Williams Lake. Local media reports say she bled to death after being beaten and sexually assaulted. Project E-Pana, a task force investigating disappearances and deaths along Highways 16, 97, and 5 in northern BC, is investigating the homicide case. Moody’s is the oldest case on Project E-Pana.

Left her home in downtown Prince George on the evening of 13 October 1970 and was never seen again.
 She was living with her sister, Sandy, at the time in an apartment on the 1600 block of Queensway. Helen worked a number of jobs around this time, including a bus person at the Prince George HBC cafeteria and for a painting company, painting gas stations between Prince George and Terrace. Sandy did not report her sister missing until 15 October, thinking at first she might have stayed at a friend’s house. Police took a missing persons report, but Sandy said she got the impression that “nothing was done.”
Jean Virginia “Ginny” Sampare
18 Gitsegukla 1971 (October)
Ginny Sampare went missing on 14 October 1971. Her cousin Alvin was the last person to see her near a bridge on Highway 16 in Gitsegukla. He left Ginny to bike home and get his jacket. As he pedaled back to meet her, he heard a pickup door slam. But when he reached the road, there was no pickup, and his cousin was gone.
 There was some speculation that Ginny ran away or committed suicide after her boyfriend disappeared, but her family disputes these theories. Her boyfriend’s body was found drowned in the Skeena river after she disappeared.
Monica Ignas
14 Thornhill 1974 (December)
She was believed to be going home from school when she was last seen at 11 pm on 13 December 1974 in Thornhill. She was walking home alone. Her body was found in a gravel pit or a densely forested area on 6 April 1975, east of Terrace, near Celgar Forest Service Road. Two witnesses reported seeing a car pulled over to the side of the road the night Ignas vanished. The pair saw a man and a passenger who looked like a girl inside the vehicle.
 Monica had been strangled.
Mary Jane Hill
31 Prince Rupert 1978 (March)
Mary Jane Hill was found nude along Highway 16, on 26 March 1978, 34 km (21 mi) from Prince Rupert. Cause of death was determined to be from bronchitis and bronchopneumonia as a result of manslaughter.

26 Prince George 1989 (August)
The Jack family left their home on Strathcona Avenue in Prince George, heading to a logging camp, where they had been offered jobs and daycare for the children. Ronald and Doreen Jack and their two children Russell, 9, and Ryan, 4, were last heard from during the early hours of 2 August 1989, when Ronald called his mother in the Burns Lake area.
Alberta Gail Williams
24 Prince Rupert 1989 (August)
Alberta Williams went missing in the early morning hours of 26 August 1989. She was last seen at Popeye’s, a since closed pub in downtown Prince Rupert. She was seen near closing time by her sister Claudia.
 Alberta said she was going to a house party. Claudia turned around and Alberta had gone. Alberta was last seen wearing a blue sweatshirt and black stretch pants with slip-on shoes. Alberta’s naked body was found on 25 Sept. 1989, about 37 km (23 mi) east of Prince Rupert, BC, near the Tyee Overpass. She had been strangled and sexually assaulted.
 According to the field notes of RCMP officer, Gerry Kerr, on September 12, shortly before Alberta’s body was found, bloody clothes resembling the ones she wore the night that she went missing were found near the ferry terminal in Prince Rupert. Among the items, a blue sweater, slipper-type shoe, a jumpsuit, a pillow case, two pillow covers, a sock, a shoelace and a crumpled up piece of paper were found as well. The clothes appeared to be tossed in the bush. These clothes were seized but likely destroyed by the RCMP, as Gary said that RCMP indicated it wasn’t related to Alberta Williams’s disappearance. There is a strong possibility that the RCMP didn’t take the evidence seriously because Williams’ body had not yet been found.
 A 2006 article indicated that the family wanted Alberta to remain off the “RCMP Highway of Tears list”.
 Alberta was placed on the RCMP’s E-Pana list, possibly against the family’s wishes.
