Cold case mystery: can you help solve the case of Ernest Meyn?


Ernest Meyn was killed in an accident in Northern B.C. seven years ago when he was transporting a heavy load from Edmonton to Fort St John, and now Crime Stoppers is asking for the public’s help to identify the person responsible for his death.

The 69-year-old pulled over at the South Taylor Hill brake check to perform a safety inspection. When he was out of his vehicle clearing off snow on a cold March day,  another commercial vehicle drove up, and according to witnesses crushed Meyn against his own trailer. The 17-tonne vehicle moved four feet at impact.

The suspect’s vehicle fled the scene and continued north bound on the Alaska highway.

Surveillance photo captured truck at the top of the screen.


Surveillance photo from a nearby gas station captured the truck, and investigators hope these clues will help crack the cold case.

Photos show a similar vehicle, a white tractor day cab, possibly a Kenworth T-800 series with texas rigging and an orange or red knuckle picker.
