BC Crimestoppers: The case of missing 16-year-old Ramona Wilson of Smithers


A teenage girl goes missing from a northern B.C. town and months later, police discover she’s been murdered.

16-year-old Ramona Wilson was known as a bright student who sometimes skipped school.

She lived with her mother and brother in a house in Smithers and had a part-time job at a local restaurant.

At 9:30 p.m. on June 1, 1994, Wilson left her home in Smithers saying she was going to sleepover at a friend’s place.

Ten months later, her body was found north of the airport.

Police photographs show the scene where Wilson’s remains were found.

It’s a wooded area just north of Yelich Road which is sometimes used by hunters, dog walkers or as a teen hangout.

The clothes Wilson wore the night she went missing were also discovered.

Several items were in a small organized pile a few feet away.

Other objects nearby included a half-buried small section of rope, three interlocking nylon ties and a small pink “brass knuckles” type water pistol.

Investigators are looking for information to solve the murder of Wilson.
