A female co-worker passed by the Subway store where Nick Kunselman worked at 12:40am on February 14, 2000. His girlfriend of two years, Stephanie Grizzell, had dropped by to pick him up. The lights were still on after the 10pm closing time. The woman decided to check in on the store because this was highly unusual. She saw a young man walking away from the store, dressed in a red jacket and flared pants.

Hi, I’m Christine. I’m a true crime researcher, writer, and editor. I run a true crime site called The True Crime Files. My site is dedicated to all things true crime: investigations, reviews, updates, etc. I focus on unsolved murders and disappearances in hopes to reinvigorate interest in the cases. Needless to say, I’m thrilled to write this guest post for Considering Cold Cases. Thanks for reading, and happy holidays!
In July 1983, Susan Tice had moved to the neighbourhood known in Toronto, Canada as Little Italy. Susan and her husband had been living in Calgary, Alberta. They were separating, and Susan and her husband both moved to Toronto from Calgary, but lived in separate homes.
Susann was 45 years old and a mother of four children. She worked with disadvantaged children and had obtained a nursing degree from McMaster University and a master’s degree in social work from the University of Toronto. She lived alone in her home at 341 Grace Street.
In Canada, dozens of women have been murdered or disappeared along Highway 16 in British Columbia. Most are still unsolved. Many of the women are of Indigenous descent. Indigenous women in Canada are four times as likely to be murdered than non-native Canadian women. Indigenous groups have long claimed that police do not properly investigate these cases because of racial prejudice, however, it should be noted that the solution rate for homicides of Indigenous women is nearly identical for the solution rate for homicides involving non-native women. The Highway of Tears has a particularly high murder and disappearance rate because of poverty and a lack of public transportation in the area, which has lead to increased hitchhiking, where many women have met their death.

On 23 March 1988 Debbie Linsley boarded the 2:16pm train at Orpington to London Victoria. It was a 35 minute train journey.
Debbie boarded an old-fashioned train carriage with room for six people and doors at each side of the carriage. Unlike modern trains, there is no corridor between the carriages. Debbie sat in her carriage and smoked two cigarettes and ate part of her sandwich. A passenger stated that screaming was heard from Debbie’s carriage after it left Brixton in south London, the final, and longest leg of the train journey. The witness heard noises for two minutes and feared a woman was being raped. But it was even worse.
