ARTICLE #146) Missing B.C. woman's name forwarded to US authorities

Missing B.C. woman's name forwarded to US authorities - Edmonton, AB Canada
March 8, 2009

The name of a British Columbia woman who disappeared in Las Vegas nearly 3 years ago has been forwarded to investigators in New Mexico, as they investigate the discovery of 13 bodies in what some are describing as a mass grave.

"I still need to know." says Glendene Grant - the Kamloops mother of Jessica Foster, who's disappearance in April 2006 is considered by some U.S. authorities to be a case of human trafficking. "I don't believe that Jessie is dead but I'm still...I'm not close-minded and there is a chance. If she is I want to find her just as desperately. So even though all this stuff is rather grim, I still need to know."

Grant says her daughter's file has been handed to officials in Albuquerque as they try to identify bones discovered by a work crew. "That's not very far away from Las Vegas and I just found out today that they found two other bodies in an area about 15 miles away. They haven't decided if it's something that is connected to the case or not but they just find it awful close."

"They've got Jessie's information now and Fox News is talking about a potential trucker serial killer."

Investigators believe most of the victims are female and worked as prostitutes - two of them disappeared in 2004.

It is also believed they were killed by one person.

North Las Vegas detectives believe Foster may have been working as a call girl at the time of her disappearance. (BM, CKNW, blb)
