He is considered Canada's most wanted fugitive to this day. And this past year was the 30-year anniversary of one of the most horrific murders ever shown on AMW.
9-year old Sharin' Morningstar Kennan was last seen alive on the afternoon of January 23rd, 1983. She was told to be home by 4 PM. She vanished, and after a massive 9-day search her body was found stuffed in the refrigerator of a house Dennis Melvin Howe was renting.
Here is a bit more from a news article about Howe himself vanishing for decades afterwards:
Howe was last seen in Sault Ste. Marie, Ont. the day after Sharin’ disappeared, getting a bus transfer to Winnipeg.
Through the years, as leads disappeared, Howe was like a ghost — sighted here and there but never really there in the flesh.
Police put out a bulletin, advising dentists to contact them if Howe, who had bad teeth and used Orajel frequently to dull the pain, came looking for help.
In 1999, a tip led to a Sudbury cemetery, where police believed that the name on the grave, Peter Sanderson, was really Howe. They dug up the grave to get samples for DNA testing, but results showed it wasn’t Howe.
Howe had family out west, and there are unanswered questions about what they knew.
Howe’s half brother, Eugene Nelson, was alleged to have given Howe money to come to Toronto when Howe fled three days after he was released on mandatory supervision from prison in Prince Albert, Sask., on Feb. 17, 1982.
And there are about a dozen mysterious trips that Eugene made to Montana and Washington State after the murder. When questioned about those trips by former Regina police detective Rod Buckingham, Eugene stopped going to the U.S. and took any answers he had to the grave in 2004.
So the question is, where is Howe now if he's still alive?
UPDATE: As of July 26th, 2018, Howe is still listed on the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) website as one of their most wanted fugitives: www.rcmp-grc.gc.ca/wanted/dennis-melvin-howe
