Police Identify Remains
Police have confirmed the two bodies found in a wooded area off Thorburn
Road more than a month ago are those of Dale Worthman and Kimberly Lockyer.
RNC Chief Joe Browne and the province's Chief Medical Examiner Dr. Simon Avis
also confirmed that they died of gun shot wounds. Avis says the area in
which they were buried allowed a certain amount of preservation of the remains.
He says other foreign material was also found at the site, but didn't say
what. Chief Browne is appealing to the public for more information on what
is now a double homicide. Browne says the Constabulary is still
offering a 50 thousand dollar reward. An investigative hotline has been
set up and the number of 729-8814. There is also an e-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org
The top cops from all over Canada descended upon Newfoundland for a
conference following this discovery. All of these cops are well aware of the
allegations against Murrin and his past as an RCMP informant . Among those
quote: One person who knows about this is in St. John's now attending the
Chiefs of Police conference. Superintendent E.K.McCall is the RCMP officer in
charge of the National Child Exploitation Co-ordination Centre in Ottawa.
Item # 4: As you just heard in the news, the Royal Newfoundland
Constabulary is holding a news conference now to tell more about the case.

From the 1999 Mindy Tran
RCMP investigation notes-
In Book 7 of Tidsbury's notes
Shepherd advised Tidsbury that Shannon was a bad character and that Shannon had
filed a complaint against the RCMP in Newfoundland.
Book 12 of the notes contains
the following notes concerning a conversation with Jason Shepherd:
advised he was phoning to
advise me he Murrin was prime suspect in double murder - Workman and female
Murrin also suspect in 4 or 5 children sexual assaults
Shannon Murrin's girlfriend Kathy MacDonald submitted the evidence
running on the injusticebusters.com
website which named Shannon Murrin as the prime suspect in the Worthman Lockyer
murders at a time prior to the discovery of their bodies. Kathy MacDonald later asked Sheila Steele the website administrator to remove
the story from the internet. Sheila refused.
Lockyer case updates
Sheila Steele was asked by this website to confirm the source of the story running on her
site. She did in an e-mail which was published here on Oct 15/06. An Affidavit
was to follow, it would never make it.
see- copy of e-mail confirmation
Sheila died suddenly and unexpectedly less than a month later.
A member of the Mindy Tran prosecution team claimed that Murrin had been
trying to have his charges dropped at the time by offering police information on
other murders including these. The prosecutor claimed that they were not told that Murrin
had a past history as a police informant/ agent.
Note : A lawyer was in attendance for conversation.
Just how far does Murrin's protected informant status go? Why is there no public mention of the prime suspect in
Newfoundland murders? Hopefully
this will not become a re-run of the Mindy Tran fiasco and hopefully there has been a
high level change in the informant
handling policy since then. This case, like all others involving Shannon
Murrin, will need to be watched
The Newfoundland Police at first claimed that they were awaiting the autopsy and forensic
results before naming the two victims. A strangely suggestive news headline
coincided with several delays while key personal were being selected to "
handle " the case.
A blanket of protection
The Police and media claim that few details are being
released, but tidbits are being leaked out and public perceptions are being
shaped. The impression that there is not quite enough evidence to arrest
Murrin is being fostered.
are releasing few details.
The longer this case drags on with no arrest, the less likely it is that
there will ever be an arrest. This is how most of the cases against Murrin
begin. There was enough evidence back in 1997 to name Murrin as the prime
suspect then, and there is likely a lot more evidence now with the discovery of
quote from story:
Since the discovery of the bones on July 16, tips have been pouring
in from the public, Layden said. A team of investigators is now
following up on all those leads.
See another strange connection, an RCMP drug informant, wire taps on witnesses,
Worthman and Lockyer named, what was going on here! Are these wire taps
being placed on all witnesses to Murrin's murders?

now removed from website
see- sound familiar Kelowna?
In Mindy Tran's case, evidence and witnesses disappeared while
delay's were ongoing. The undercovers from the Kelowna RCMP were
implicated in "blowing" that case. A major rift developed in the
Kelowna RCMP as a result. Those protecting Murrin won out! How does an
organization in which it's members must follow orders, stop this from occurring
when the orders to do so come from above? Can the rank and file arrest their
superiors for abuse of power or for obstructing justice?
Another suggestive news headline, "Publication ban sought in Newfoundland double
murder case". The article is supposedly speaking of another case,
however a real gag order would prohibit this article from being published in
this manner. This article names that which is supposedly prohibited and where to
find it. It is suspicious and may actually be a "veiled" reference to
another double murder case in Newfoundland. (Note- this would be highly unusual
but it is also the type of thing previously found in other cases involving
When a publication ban is placed In Canada, in some cases the media cannot
report the reasons why or even inform the public that there is such a ban.
In other words, in some cases the media are not allowed to report which case in
which place on which subject they are not allowed to report. Columnist Rick
Salutin referred to the "mini-epidemic" of publication bans as "banomania"
(G&M, 10 December 1993, A13).
Person involved in Worthman Lockyer investigation receives death threats! In
the message below, the procedure behind this is shown. Due to this being an open
investigation, details known only to witnesses are not to be made known. The
witness or persons knowing the information are instructed not to talk under
threat of charges- "interfering in a police investigation". This
is an understandable and valid reason except in these types of situations, the
witness in effect has informed on a protected police informant. No one then knows who the witness is
except the police. This is what happened in the Mindy Tran case where certain
key witness's who had also informed on this same guy were then found dead for no apparent
reason. (witness stories).
has changed dramatically, the witness receiving the threats is
now praising the investigating Police officer and
nominating him for the investigator of the year award.
Jan/12/07 The reason for why the cop was being
praised only became evident sometime later. Progress was being
have made an arrest in connection with the 1993 murders of
Kimberly Ann Lockyer and Dale Worthman. A 37 year old man from
Portugal Cove-St. Philips was arrested and will appear in court
tomorrow on two charges of second degree murder. Police
called a news conference this evening to make the announcement.
Worthman and Lockyer disappeared more than 13 years ago and
in August of last year after a ground search off Thorburn Road,
two sets of remains were found. An autopsy determined the
pair had been shot.
this qualify Shannon Murrin for the witness protection program?
Will this justify placing additional media gag orders on the other
cases like that of Dana Bradley? Stay tuned!
