On Thursday friends and family of a teenaged murder victim from Hazelton will gather for her funeral. 16 year old C.J. Fowler's body was discovered earlier this month in Kamloops. Her funeral is taking place as the family grapples with yet another blow. Her brother suffered a brain injury last week after being hit by a car. Meantime the Kamloops RCMP are still asking for the publics help in finding the person who killed C.J. Fowler. On Wednesday the RCMP released a surveillance photo taken of her just before she left Royal Inland Hospital at 2:54 AM on December 5th. Her body was found in a ravine near the end of Grandview Terrace around 11:30 AM that same day. If you saw her that morning you are asked to call the police.

Cypress Mountain is demanding he pay 10 thousand dollars toward rescue costs. Boucher says he had already planned to donate money to search crews and says he will deal with the ski hill's demand for cash.
