Missing Women Commission of Inquiry: Wally Oppal
The women on Vancouver's Downtown Eastside knew something terrible was behind the mysterious disappearances of the other women in the neighbourhood. But it took years for police to learn that terrible secret.
Ten years after the arrest of Robert Pickton, a report into the the investigation of his crimes is finally out. It includes 63 recommendations to the BC Government for ways to ensure something like this cannot happen again. And many of those recommendations concern police.
Wally Oppal is the inquiry commissioner. He was in Vancouver.
Marnie Frey was one of Robert Pickton's victims. Rick Frey is Marnie's father. And Brittney Frey is Marnie's daughter. They were both at home in Campbell River, British Columbia.
We did request an interview with the RCMP, but that request was declined. And the Vancouver Police Department said it was limiting its comments to a statement issued by the department.
