The Valentine’s Day Murders of a Teenage Couple: My Guest Post on CrimeBlogger 1983

 

Hey everyone, in case you missed my Twitter posts, last week I did a guest blog on crimeblogger1983.blogspot.co.uk/

In April 1999, two students, Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold murdered 12 of their Columbine High School students and a teacher. Ten months later, tragedy struck the school again when two students were murdered.

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.

Highway of Tears: Full and Detailed List. 27 cases, 22 unsolved.

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.
