No Justice for Jacqueline English?

Maybe it is because my oldest daughter is very close to being the same age as Jacqueline English?  Maybe it is because I couldn't imagine the horror of your child going missing and later found dead, and maybe it is because I don't think I would remain sane over the years knowing that the person or people responsible for her death were never brought to justice.  Or, maybe because I was once a teenage girl working a part time job and remember being stalked at my job.....

I just don't know.

But after reading an article in today's edition of The London Free Press, I felt I needed to try to help spread the word and keep her name alive.

Forty three years ago today, fifteen year old Jacqueline English started her walk to catch the bus, after working a shift at her job.  She was last seen walking over the Wellington Road bridge over the 401 in London, Ontario.  Five days later she was found in Otter Creek near Tillsonburg, Ontario.. 

Jacqueline English was part of a string of killings in the London area in the late 1960's and early 1970's.  According to The London Free Press article Jacqueline's murder is not listed by the OPP's unsolved murders.  Why?  Following The London Free Press article, I found a forum called UnsolvedCanada.com.   It's chilling to read through, but it is full of tips and other information. 

Tonight, Jacqueline's sister and other supporters, committed to bringing closure for Jacqueline, will walk over the bridge - retracing Jacqueline's final steps.  They want to keep Jacqueline's memory alive and not give up hope that we can never say never.


I firmly believe that someone, somewhere knows who took Jacqueline that night.  It is not too late, to reach out and share what they know.

Pam as a mom with two teen girls, this is a chilling story. My prayers are with this family to find the answers that they seek.

Not knowing what happened would be the hardest part.
Thank you for sharing and keeping her memory alive. I do hope the family is able to find justice and closure.

This is something no family should EVER have to go through. It's bad enough when something horrible happens, but when the bad guy gets away...

How tragic. My cousin was murdered and it is still unsolved. That kind of thing doesn't go away and even if it does get solved, you may get a little closure but, it's still there. My heart goes out to all the victims.

This is so sad! I think the worst thing would be not knowing what happened in the last hours of your childs life. I don't think I could live with that.

How sad. One day something will come to light. On the other hand, sometimes I think I'd rather not know.

This is so sad :( What I hate most is how common it actually is.

I feel deeply for all parents who lose a child, especially in circumstances such as this. It's great that her memory is being kept alive still.
