The first map is a full view of the Tsawwassen
area. The second is a view of the scene of
the murder and the Tsawwassen Mall.
These maps illustrate some major holes in the police theory of the murders.
- The police say a taxi driver picked up two young men from the ferry
terminal on October 5, 1990. They say that the two young men were
Derik Lord and David Muir. The taxi driver's description did not
describe either boy.
- The taxi driver said he dropped these two young men off at the Tsawwassen
- Amanda Cousins said that the boys were to murder the two women on
September 21, 1990 but they couldn't find the house. If this were
true then why would they get taken to the Tsawwassen Mall, some 2.2 kilometres
from the murder scene on October 5. Amanda Cousins also said the
boys were to catch the 7:00 pm. ferry back to Swartz Bay. This would
have made expediency a necessity, but the police say they chose to walk
2.2 kilometres through unfamiliar streets. The obvious question is
why not get dropped off at 49 street and 8A avenue?
- The police say a second taxi driver picked up two young men from
the Tsawwassen Mall before 7:00 pm. and drove them to the ferry terminal.
This second taxi driver's description does not describe either boy again.
The taxi dispatcher said she received the call from the mall at 6:45 pm.
(Derik's trial transcript page 717)
- Mary Keighley who worked for Mrs. Leatherbarrow at the Surrey warehouse
said she left work at 5:15. (Derik's trial transcript page 488)
Mrs. Leatherbarrow and Mrs. Huenemann were still at work at this time.
- The police say the two young men the May boys saw were Derik and
- The May boys were outside and saw two men in their early twenties
at 6:30 pm, give or take fifteen minutes. (Derik's trial transcript
- (Derik's trial transcript page 742) Danny May was asked:
Q: Approximately how long did you watch them?
- Why didn't the prosecutor ask Danny May to identify
the two defendants at this time? I suggest that the prosecutor
knew that Danny May would say that the two defendants were not the ones
he saw at that time. This is where the defence counsel also screwed
up because he too did not ask if the defendants were the two males that
A: Around six to eight minutes.
Q: Did you see their faces?
A: Yes, I did.
Q: Did you see anybody else in the neighbourhood at the time
that you noticed these two males?
A: Ah, nobody besides my brother and I.
- This entire trial was conducted with innuendo,
without fact, without reasonable identification, and without reasonable
explanations for the need to walk a total of 4.4 kilometres from the Tsawwassen
Mall to the murder scene then back to the Tsawwassen Mall.
