She didn’t stay there for long. On April 27-, 2016 Ashley and her boyfriend had an argument over money. She wanted to go back to Ontario to work with her father but didn’t have enough money to travel.
After arguing, Simpson’s boyfriend apparently went back into the trailer and went to sleep. When he awoke the following morning,
Ashley was gone. Favell told a friend and landlord that Ashley had texted him twice that morning to say she was leaving him and would send for her things.
Favell thought Simpson was on her way back to Ontario for a summer job and for her sister’s baby shower. But when no contact was made- Ashley was declared missing on April 30.
