B.C. RCMP appeal for information in cold case involving murder of infant twins

October 05, 2017 - 11:42 AM

PRINCETON, B.C. - Police say the case of murdered newborn twin girls remains active more than 20 years after their bodies were found in a provincial park north of Princeton, B.C.

RCMP Cpl. Dan Moskaluk has made a new appeal for information that could solve the crime.

The girls' identities haven't been determined but Moskaluk says the search continues for their mother or whomever might have left them wrapped in black garbage bags at Allison Lake Provincial Park.

The bodies were found on Oct. 9, 1994.

Moskaluk says in a news release it was never determined if the newborns' mother was involved in their deaths or whether she may have been a victim herself.

Police determined both babies were breathing when they were born and would have survived if proper care had been provided after their birth.

Investigators have resubmitted exhibits to a lab, followed up on tips and obtained DNA samples in hopes of solving the murders.

Medical records for twin pregnancies in B.C. didn't produce any clues, which Moskaluk says may indicate the mother did not receive any medical care during her pregnancy or may have come from outside the province.

The girls were named the Princeton Angels and lie side by side in a single grave at the Princeton cemetery after people in the community came together to provide a memorial for them.
