Cops eye personal items

By PETER SMITH -- Calgary Sun

The mom of one of 50 missing Vancouver women believes cops searching a Port Coquitlam pig farm for remains have found women's jewelry, clothing and shoes.

But Kathleen Hallmark MacLellan, whose daughter Helen Hallmark disappeared in 1997, foresees difficulties for the missing-women task force in its efforts to match the items to the missing women.

Kathleen is one of numerous relatives of the missing women slated to meet with the task-force members in Surrey, B.C., later today.

She has been asked to describe or bring personal items connected to her daughter with her to assist the task force.

"They want to know what clothes she was wearing, what size clothes she wore, what size shoes she wore and what jewelry she owned," said Kathleen. "If they are asking us for those things, it's obvious they must have found items like that to compare them with."

But she believes the desperate lifestyle her daughter and the other missing prostitutes led could foil the best efforts of the task force.

"It's a sad fact, but whatever clothes or possessions Helen had the night she disappeared she probably stole from someone else," said Kathleen. "These women don't own anything."

Investigators have charged one of the pig-farm owners, Robert (Willie) Pickton, 52, with first-degree murder in relation to two of the 50 missing women.
