Police widening B.C. pig farm probe

The Vancouver Province

Monday, September 30, 2002

VANCOUVER -- The family of a missing man say police have told them the missing women's task force is widening its investigation to include all old missing persons cases in the Lower Mainland.

The family says officers have told them much DNA recovered at a Port Coquitlam pig farm does not match any of the more than 60 women who have disappeared from Vancouver's downtown east side. Jason O'Donaghey, a promising but troubled young carver who occasionally went drinking in the downtown east side, was 19 when he disappeared in 1991.

His aunt, Jennifer Hopkins, said a North Vancouver RCMP serious crime investigator told her last week: "Serious crime investigators throughout the Lower Mainland have been told to review all the missing person cases."

And Jason's brother, Sean O'Donaghey, said police have asked for a DNA sample from their parents. He said he can't think how his brother could have ended up at the pig farm at the centre of the missing women investigation unless it was "to drink."

The RCMP investigator involved in the case couldn't be reached for comment.

RCMP Const. Catherine Galliford, of the missing women's task force, would say only that the O'Donaghey investigation "is not part of the missing women's task force investigation."
