KILLERS ON THE LOOSE
From the book Killers On The Loose,

29 Sex-Trade Workers Missing in Vancouver
Though they have no corpses or hard evidence to back their claims, prostitutes and social workers in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside suspect a serial killer is responsible for the disappearance of more than 29 local sex-trade workers. Police are less certain. "We have no crime scenes, we have no bodies... It's very frustrating." Vancouver police spokeswoman Constable Anne Drennan told the press. "It's one of the most difficult files we've ever worked because of the lack of clear evidence."
Patricia Gay Perkins was the first to disappear in 1978, but she was not reported missing until 1996. Six more women vanished between 1978 and 1995. The pace picked up in 1995 with three new disappearances; three more in 1996; six in 1998; and eight more in 1997. As of this writing, two prostitutes have been reported missing in 1999. The victims range in age from 19 to 46. Most are described on missing-persons posters as known drug users and prostitutes frequenting Vancouver's ravished Downtown Eastside.
The missing women reportedly sold sex to feed their intravenous cocaine and/or heroin habits. Some had HIV, hepatitis or both. They all left behind their belongings, bank accounts, children in foster care, welfare checks. "You're talking about women on welfare who didn't pick up their last welfare check, who left their belongings in a dingy hotel room." said Constable Drennan. "It's not as though they could just jump on a plane and fly to Toronto."
One missing woman, Angela Jardine, disappeared in her bright pink formal gown, leaving in her dingy hotel room an eerie reminder of her possible untimely death -- an unmailed Easter card addressed to her parents saying: "Know how much I love you, Mother and Dad? A whole bunch!" Stephanie Lane disappeared leaving behind a child with her mother and an uncashed welfare check. Though having into a life of prostitution and drugs, Lane kept in contact with her mom, always calling her for birthdays and holidays. It's been three years since she last heard from her.
The issue of the missing women was brought to national prominence in March, 1999 when Jamie Lee Hamilton, a transsexual and former prostitute now director of a drop-in center for sex-trade workers, called a news conference to bring the disappearances to public attention. At the news conference Hamilton and others were highly critical of the police's lackadaisical attitude towards the missing prostitutes.
At first, friends and relatives of the missing blamed authorities for ignoring the situation. Some families, disenchanted by the police investigation, have hired detective agencies to look into the situation. Six months after repeated protest marches and memorial services for the missing women, local authorities have changed their tune and stepped up their investigative efforts. "You can always say somebody is not doing enough," Drennan said. "We are doing everything literally we can think of that we can do. We're not afraid to acknowledge there could be a serial killer or multiple killers."
Though during a phone conversation on December 8, 1999 Constable Drennan said emphatically that nothing pointed towards a serial killer being involved: "Nothing at all suggest the existence of a serial killer." When asked for an interview for this book, Constable Drennan said the situation in Vancouver was "not suited for a book on serial killers considering there is no evidence or bodies."
The women on the streets and those closest to them disagree with the Constable's opinion. "The women here don't talk about it very much because they're so scared," said Elaine Allan, executive director of the Women's Information Safe House, a drop-in center for sex trade workers. Surprised by the Constable's position, Allan remarked on the fact that no missing women have been reported since the case was featured on America's Most Wanted. Some women believe its a border-hopper, perhaps even infamous Green River Killer, coming from the United States to satisfy his murderous fantasies. Some think it is a snuff film ring, or a lethal merchant marine crew kidnapping the women and murdering them at sea. Others, according to Allan, try not to think. The alternatives are to grim.
Using the mass publicity of prime time television on both sides of the border, investigators featured the case in the crime-busting TV program America's Most Wanted. The show aired July 31, 1999, fanfaring the $100,000 reward. It prompted over 100 calls to the program's Washington headquarters. "Only 20 were thought to be useful; the task force is investigating them," said Drennan. Reaching investigative overdrive, the Ministry of the Attorney General and the Vancouver Police Board Authorized a $100,000 reward for information leading to the resolution of the case. Adding
I'm supposed to be working on the prep for the book and the one bit of good news is that I actually spoke to someone (publisher) who was interested in the concept and asked to see what I had done after the first trip.
So I went to Oxford to get some training done and my instructor (Ben, really sweet young guy ... when did all the qualified people get younger than me?!) ends up stuck in Copenhagen with a broken jet. I got someone else (who was scared of the plane ... joy, like I'm not scared enough for two already!) to fly with me but then there were problems with the plane which lost me another few days. I did get some flying in and I'm competent again, but I got a minimum of hours having blocked out a full week.
Somewhere in the middle of this Cliff notices that the house is no longer connected to the Internet. We assumed someone had unplugged something silly and went on the basis that there's nothing to be done until we get home.
I couldn't really see how to write up that week though with all the various problems: lots of time sitting in hotel rooms and airfields and doing nothing. I filled up half a notebook with notes and hoped desperately that when I got home I could do something with it.
So, we get home and find no internet connection. A long story short (and bear in mind this is all hearsay): basically our ISP had a falling out with the telephone company and threatened to sue them at which point the phone company turned off all the leased lines. The ISP said sod it and gave up (they have other business ventures and are not really an ISP anymore) so there we are with no connectivity and no way forward. Add to that that by the time we get home, it's Easter week and nothing-at-all is happening in Spain at any level except celebrating.
Okay, a crash course in talking to each other and coping with lack of the internet is in order, and it's fine or even fun, like camping is fun as long as you know you don't have to live that way. And Cliff says "you should transcribe that notebook because if you lose it you lose all record" and I say "I've never lost a notebook yet." Hah.
Let me say right now before carrying on: Connor was in the village on his bike and not anywhere near the house. I am fine. Cliff is fine. The house is fine. No one got hurt.
I'm sat at the computer, going through files or whatever it is one does when you can't load web pages. Cliff is upstairs in the bedroom reading a book. I see something on the balcony, a person walking up, I'm thinking Fernando has popped by and actually have half a mind to tell him off for not knocking or ringing to let me know. The person walks into the house.
I get up and walk into the living room to meet him and there is a man.
He's dressed in sports clothes and a full ski mask and has a large metal rod in his hand.
I spend a moment not believing what I am seeing and then come to. This is now, this is happening.
"What the fuck are you doing," I say in English, followed by "Ve te!" (Go away!) in Spanish. Loudly.
He waves the rod at me and points back, up. Get out of the way, somehow he makes that clear. I back up a bit and shout for Cliff. I know he can't hear me from the lounge (he did hear my loud voice, it turns out, but he assumed Connor had come home and done something horrible and that's why I was shouting). "Call the police," I shout, thinking that it's a word that will be understood by the intruder regardless of the language.
I honestly believed that realising there was another person in the house, he'd give it up and leave. I was wrong. He rushed me, the metal rod held high. I turned and ran as fast as I could.
I fell in the hallway trying to make it to the stairs, trying to make it into range of Cliff who at this point still doesn't know there is an issue. I scramble up and look back. I see the man go into the office, rod still raised high.
"He's going in there to smash the computers," I thought. I couldn't think why. I had a pang of pain for the carnage I believed was going to happen.
I screamed again, now by the stairwell, gaining Cliff's attention and trying to make it clear that there is real danger, right now. Cliff took no more than a millisecond to grasp what I was saying and then dialed 112 (911 equivalent for Europe) as I run up the stairs.
Clearly, the man only had the weapon raised because he didn't think to drop it. What he was after was my purse/handbag. Somewhat bizarrely, my small wallet with all credit cards and passport got dropped to the floor, I had it out that afternoon and apparently didn't tuck it in as carefully as I should have.
Go, me. Disorganisation has its benefits.
Cliff and I carefully go back down the stairs (while the emergency people asked a ton of irrelevant questions, although to be fair the police did show very quickly) and the man was gone.
As was my handbag, my briefcase, and Cliff's flightbag with his computer in it.
