What happened to CJ Fowler?
The sixteen-year-old girl and a male companion travelled to Kamloops to visit friends a few days before her remains were found in Guerin Creek, Dec. 5. So far, police have been tight-lipped with information about the case, but this is what we know so far about her movements in her final hours that day.
A video surveillance photo released by RCMP shows Fowler leaving the Royal Inland Hospital in Kamloops at 2:54 a.m. on Dec. 5. She was due to return home that morning and she had a Greyhound bus ticket to leave sometime that morning. She had a lot of ground to cover to get there. Police haven't said if anyone was with her at the hospital or why she was there.
According to Google Maps, if she were to walk up Columbia Street to the bus station, it would have taken her 41 minutes to travel the 2.6 kilometres. It was 7°C that day and likely colder in the early hours of the morning when she left the hospital. The chilly weather and the large hills in the area are both obstacles Fowler faced to get from downtown to Sahali.
Police believe she was killed between 2:50 a.m. and 6 a.m. She was found by a hiker at about 11:30 a.m.
If you think you saw her that morning or have any information you are asked to call RCMP or Crimestoppers.
