Police launch underwater search in teen murder case
Police on Vancouver Island launched an underwater search Wednesday as part of their investigation into the murder of 18-year-old Kimberly Proctor.
The RCMP's dive team was dispatched to search the area of Glen Lake bordered by the Galloping Goose Trail near Colwood, B.C.
Proctor's badly burned body was discovered on March 19 along the popular hiking trail.
Since then, Vancouver Island RCMP say they have received almost 100 tips from members of the public, and spoken to hundreds of people.
Police say they are unable to discuss what information led them to conduct an underwater search in Glen Lake.
On Saturday, members of the Juan de Fuca Search and Rescue Team also conducted a ground search of the area surrounding Glen Lake.
Police have previously said they are investigating comments that Proctor made online in the months before she was killed.
Days before her murder, she posted on Facebook about a "psycho" ex-boyfriend with "really bad anger issues."
She also posted messages on a website called Vampire Freaks, revealing that she had been bullied by other teenage girls.
Police are asking anyone with information about the case to call the West Shore RCMP detachment at 250-474-2264.
