Vigil sparks stories of loss

Killed in front of their children. Killed while pregnant. Women killed with axes, screwdrivers, guns and hammers. Shot and stabbed multiple times. Stuffed in pillowcases. Killed by those who were supposed to love them.

The painful emotions linked to a vigil held Feb. 3 Coalition Against Violence, to remember women and girls either murdered or missing in Newfoundland and Labrador, inspired a series of stories in The Telegram, leading up to and immediately following the vigil.

At a vigil for murdered and missing women and girls at the Holiday Inn in St. John’s Monday night, names were read from a card, the card was placed on a table and a candle was taken by the person reading it.

I am the aunt of Pamela Asprey. Missing from St. Johns NFL, Nov 12, 1984. I found a page on Facebook put up by a Tracy Bishop today. She said Pam lived with her family. When I went back to the Pamela Asprey page put up by Tracy Bishop it was taken down???????????? I would like to know more about what your organization does. I also found a posting from a Poole lady asking for identifying marks on Pam. She is suppose to be a private investigator. .I checked her Facebook page and she looks about 20 yrs of age. I am growing more curious by the second!. Alice Asprey Lefurgey
