Brittany Stalman

File Number: 104200212

North Delta, B.C. - Brittany Stalman was last seen by her family on November 13, 2006 as she walked out of the home they shared in North Delta, BC. After an argument on the phone with her boyfriend, Brittany told her father she was going on a walk to clear her head and left around 1:00 pm, and it would be the last time her family would see her.

Did Brittany kill herself after arguing with her boyfriend? This is possible, of course, but unlikely. Brittany's mother, Sandra Stalman, explained that her daughter "does suffer from bouts of depression." However, Sandra also added that Brittany's "got ups and downs no different than any other, but she's basically a happy kid." People can hide their depression from their friends and family. But I find it odd that if Brittany did kill herself her body has never been found.

PID: 420-09-2000-0059
Case Status: COLD CASE
BODY FOUND BESIDE HER CAB
Location: Thompson, Manitoba, Canada
File Name: Who Did This?

Mellissa Ivy Chaboyer

File Number: 104200059

Thompson, Manitoba - Mellissa Ivy Chaboyer, 35, the mother of a 17-year-old son, drove for North Star Taxi in Thompson. She had worked part-time as a cab driver for about 20 years and worked full time with developmentally challenged adults.

Shortly before 1 a.m. on Saturday, November 26, 2005 another taxi driver found Ms. Chaboyer's body beside her cab in the City Centre Mall parking lot. An autopsy revealed that she had been stabbed to death.

Hundreds of Thompson residents attended a memorial ceremony in the in the parking lot that afternoon and a vigil was held in the evening.

Thompson's three taxi companies (North Star, Driftwood Nickel and Cliff's) shut down from 3 p.m. until 7 the next morning as drivers attended the vigil. Cabs were parked bumper to bumper around the lot so that attendees could warm up after standing in subzero temperatures. Several restaurants donated coffee.

"She was one of the gentlest drivers in the whole industry," said Jas Gills, manager of North Star Taxi. "If someone didn't have the money, she'd smile and say, 'pay later.' She never would have gotten into a dispute with someone."

Cab driving is riskier than police work. In fact, taxi drivers and police have the highest on-the-job risk of murder, according to a Statistics Canada study of occupation-related homicides from 2000 to 2010.

Of the two, the study says, taxi drivers were twice as likely as police officers to be a victim of homicide while working, which drivers say reflects the fact that they are seen as vulnerable targets.

"It's not a good feeling to have a gun to your head," said Santanu, 41, a cab driver who lives in Rogers Park. He said he's been robbed twice while working the night shift since becoming a licensed cab driver in 2000. "It did shake me up quite a lot for a few weeks."

A 2008 University of Illinois at Chicago survey found that 58.7 percent of Chicago cab drivers said they have been threatened, attacked and subjected to hostile racial comments. During physical attacks inside the cabs, guns were the weapons most used against drivers, followed by knives, according to survey results.

The combination of isolation, picking up strangers and carrying cash makes taxi drivers a target for criminals, crime experts said, particularly during the busy hours of 1 a.m., 2 a.m., and 3 a.m.

No charges have been laid in Mellissa's murder, and the case remains unsolved.

RAPED, MURDERED

File Name: The Disappearance and Murder of Mindy Tran

Mindy Tran

File Number: 104200122

Kelowna, British Columbia - It's been 26 years since Mindy Tran rode her bike down a quiet Kelowna road and became the victim of one of this city's most infamous and ultimately unsolved crimes.

The eight-year-old had gone out to play just after dinner, Aug. 17, 1994. When she didn't return, a search was called and hundreds of area residents fanned out across the neighbourhood to find who was described by many as a studious and friendly child, according to Capital News archives.

Her body, which showed evidence of strangulation and sexual violation, was ultimately found six weeks later, Oct. 11, 1994, when a man with a divining rod led police to a shallow grave in Mission Creek Regional park.

Last year 2019, 25 years later, a small group of mourners met at the Mindy Tran Memorial, a tree with a sign next to it featuring her school photo and a dedication to the memory of the little girl.

The dedication reads, "See this tree that will grow instead of Mindy."

Roses were laid, kisses were blown and a prayer was said in Tran's memory.

"I want to remember the little girl. I want her to rest in peace," said Shui Lee, a friend of Tran family who helped search for Mindy.

Lee spoke on behalf of her parents who did not attend the ceremony because it was "too painful." However, Lee said that the couple is still grateful for the support of the community in the search for their daughter.

"Every night they are still so angry," said Lee.

For Sandi Giddings, her son lost a best friend all those years ago.

"There's not a day that goes by that we don't think of her," said Giddings, who also helped search for Tran.

Tran's memorial and her tree sits at the Springfield/ Ziprick Road parking lot, close to where she was found.

Shannon Murrin, a neighbour, was charged with her murder, but was acquitted and returned to Newfoundland, joined by one of his jurors, Kathy MacDonald, who later admitted they had fallen in love during the trial.

Since Murrin's acquittal, the murder remains unsolved.

What happened? Who is responsible? What do you think?

To mark the fourth anniversary of the disappearance and death of Hillary Angel Wilson, friends and family gathered for a walk and candle light service.

Her family hosted a Justice for Hillary Memorial Walk in 2013, Monday morning where they marched to the Manitoba Legislature. Later, mourners gathered again at the Legislature for a candle light vigil. About 20 people attended the vigil.

Wilson's mother says it's cultural tradition to stop after four memorials but she won't stop looking for justice, "I wish this and many other cases could get solved," she told Global News. "I'm patiently waiting and trying to do what I can."

If you have any information about this case, please contact Crime Stoppers 1-800-222-8477.

PID: 420-09-2000-0148
Case Status: UNSOLVED
DISAPPEARED AFTER CALLING STEPFATHER
Location: Chilliwack, British Columbia, Canada
File Name: Pedersen, 10, Vanished Without a Trace
Author/Contributor: Amanda W.

Joanne Marie Pedersen

File Number: 104200148

On the 19th of February, 1983, at approximately 8:15 pm, Joanne Marie Pedersen, 10, went missing from the Penny Pincher Store near the corner of Vedder Road and Watson Road in the Vedder Crossing area of Chilliwack, BC., after a trivial argument with her sister, who was then 11.

According to The Globe and Mail, the spat occurred while the girls were walking home from the mall with their 14-year-old cousin. Joanne's mother and stepfather were at a nearby Legion hall, Constable Lea-Anne Dunlop of the Upper Fraser Valley detachment said.

Her sister and cousin ran ahead and, as a prank, locked Joanne out of the house. Joanne tried for a few minutes to get in. But it was cold and raining, Constable Dunlop said, and she went to a corner store close to the house to phone her parents. By the time her sister opened the door, Joanne had already left.

Joanne reached the store, but the clerk was busy with other customers. Joanne went outside to use a pay phone. She called the operator for the number at the Legion and then phoned her stepfather, who arranged to pick her up. When he arrived at the store a half-hour later, she was gone.

In 2008, Joanne's mother made an impassioned plea for an unidentified man who was seen with her daughter shortly before she vanished to finally speak to police.

"As a mother, I have suffered very much through the years. I really miss Joanne," Angela Reilly says in an emotional videotaped message distributed by the RCMP.

"She was so happy. She sang a lot," Ms. Reilly says despondently, as she urges the man to contact police. "As a mother, I'm pleading with you to come forward. Please do that for me."

Police say Joanne was last seen with an adult man at a telephone booth. The man was described as Caucasian, approximately 20 to 30 years old, 5'6" to 5'7" in height, slim to medium build, with light to dark hair that was below the ears. He was clean shaven and wearing a dark jacket.

Initially, the unidentified man was painted in a negative light, Constable Dunlop said. But after consulting with a behavioural scientist, police now believe the man last seen with Jo-Anne was there to help her. "Our hope is that the individual will know we understand he was trying to help and will come forward to talk to police," she said.

In 2011, an anonymous letter was sent to the Chilliwack RCMP about Joanne's disappearance, but while it generated lots of tips, her case remains a mystery. They believe the man is still somewhere in the Fraser Valley and aware of the media coverage, Constable Dunlop said.

Joanne's family did not want to speak to the media about their ordeal, the constable added. A re-enactment of the incident, staged by the Chilliwack RCMP and Crime Stoppers, is on YouTube.

If you have any information regarding this case please contact the Chilliwack RCMP Community Policing Office, Serious Crime Unit, at 1-604-792-4611 or call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
