The retired investigating officer for the missing and murdered women cases along highway 16 will be returning to the investigation
Wayne Clary, who was in charge of the highway of tears investigation for the last four years, spoke at the Ramona Wilson Music festival in Smithers on Saturday.
“Once again, this is going to come from the community. This is a tough case. and I ask you to bring us the information that we need, so at least, we can bring some kind of closure,” says Clary.
He retired a few months ago and was asked to come back.
“The officer in charged of major crimes in British Columbia asked me if I would come back and carry on the investigation for the highway of tears because of my knowledge and expertise in the area. I’d be more than happy to do that, and I’m going to do that.”
Ramona Wilson was found murdered over 22 years ago in Smithers. Her sister Brenda is continuing her walk of highway 16 from Prince Rupert to Prince George raising awareness and collecting stories.
