Two years ago a couple from Alberta Canada went missing enroute to B.C. The police found their burned-out motorhome, then the toad (at another location). There was a suspect, but charges were not laid until today. I have been following this case, since I plan on taking the same route eastbound this summer - with some degree of admitted nervousness.
Police have finally charged the suspect with charges of first-degree (capital) murder.
I think it's important to watch this clip; another RVer took note of the still-intact motorhome because the driver did not practice the usual campsite set-up protocol. I think this is something we can relate to - is something we would observe. Even though I am relatively new to RV'g, I have noticed that other RVers are vigilent - look out for one another.

Quite a sad story. I suppose the family have gleaned some "closure" -
although I think that tends to be an over-used noun. It does not dismiss the grief. And now the family still has to endure the trial and its outcome.
I feel really bad for the couple's grandchild. The couple were enroute to B.C. to take their daughter and granddaughter camping.
Here is today's update.

Happy, safe camping, and let's continue to be vigilent - look out for one another.
