Facebook updates probed in B.C. teen murder case
Police are now looking into the online activities of 18-year-old Kimberly Proctor in the months leading up to the discovery of her burned body near Victoria, B.C., last week.
Proctor went missing last Thursday morning, shortly after stepping off a bus in suburban Langford.
Her body was found the next day on the Galloping Goose Trail, a popular walking route that runs through Langford.
Cpl. Darren Lagan told CTV News that RCMP are looking into a series of Facebook postings made by Proctor earlier this year.
"We're going to look at all communications Kimberly made up to her death. That helps us determine what happened -- what was going on with her life," Lagan said.
On January 22nd, she posted on Facebook that she was in love with a new friend.
"He's the most amazing guy I've met in my whole life," she wrote.
Three days later, she called him her boyfriend.
But in early February, she changed her relationship status to "single" and explained, "I had to leave the guy cause he was psycho."
A month later, on March 6, she wrote that she had never actually met the friend in person, because he lived too far away.
"I had to dump him cuz he turned out to be a psycho with really bad anger issues."
Proctor's friends and family are still struggling to come to terms with their loss.
Jon Hill told CTV News that he's grief-stricken by the murder of a girl he considered a close friend.
"Just the thought that I'll never see her walking around again or talking to me again is just really troubling. It's hard to deal with," he said.
Proctor's aunt, Jo-Anne Landolt, told CTV News that the family is appealing to the public to contact police with any relevant information.
"We have no idea where she was going and who she was hanging out with," she said. "Someone knows something, and we want this resolved as soon as possible."
A team of 40 RCMP officers have been assigned to the case.
