Vancouver Police are looking for any information in two cold cases.
The body of 28-year-old Chantel Gillade was found in a downtown Vancouver alley in the early morning hours of Sept. 1, 1995.
She was wrapped in a blue tarp and a maroon-coloured blanket.
Investigators learned that she was last seen getting into a black pick-up truck with a canopy, believed to have been a 1989 Chevrolet. It had tinted windows and a distinctive red stripe painted on the sides of the canopy.
At the time of her death, Chantel was going through gender reassignment surgery. She was 5’11” and about 150 pounds, and was last seen wearing a black, double-breasted blazer, a black mini-skirt, black stockings and black heels.
In a separate case, Mary O’Donnell was heading home just after midnight on July 28, 1988, when she was robbed and beaten to death on the grounds of Templeton High School. The petite 53-year-old had lived alone since losing her husband of 14 years to a heart attack the year before. She also struggled with mental illness.
Both cases have now been added to the department’s cold case website, dedicated to generating tips to solve these crimes.
Since the site launched two years ago, investigators have received 72 tips, but none have led to solving one of the 15 cold cases currently featured on it.
“In most of these cases, there is at least one person out there who knows something,” said Cst. Brian Montague in a release. “They may not even realize they’re holding an important piece of information in their memory. Sometimes that little piece of information is all we need to crack open a case and solve it.”
Nova Scotia wants a federal panel reviewing the northern shrimp quota off Newfoundland and Labrador to maintain a policy that protects the interests of the fishery’s pioneers.
The panel, which is scheduled to hold a hearing Friday in Halifax, is examining whether the Last-In, First-Out policy should be continued, modified or scrapped as shrimp stocks decline.

Provincial Fisheries Minister Keith Colwell said the northern shrimp fishery was actually developed several years ago by Nova Scotia’s offshore fleet and accounts for a large part of the overall shrimp catch, which is worth $131 million to the province.
Under the current policy, the last entrants to a fishery are the first to leave when a quota is cut.
Colwell said any drastic change to the rules would be unfair and would have a major impact on a fleet with a heavy investment in the fishery.
“Some of these boats are $60 million to $80 million and some of them are relatively new, so it would be a pretty significant impact on the industry overall,” said Colwell.
He said he had also expressed concerns to federal fisheries officials about the composition of the panel, which has three members from Newfoundland and only one from Nova Scotia.
Colwell didn’t reject the notion when asked whether the deck was stacked against his province.
“It’s hard to say,” he said. “I would hope not. We believe that the (federal) minister has the final decision on whatever change, if any change is made.”
The fisheries union in Newfoundland and Labrador has said the policy could spell the end of the shrimp fishery in that province.
The Fish, Food and Allied Workers Union says smaller inshore trawlers in the province are bearing almost all of the burden of cuts in the shrimp quota, and is urging Ottawa to make changes.
Colwell said because the stocks are depleted it’s clear that something has to change, although he believes that can be done to everyone’s satisfaction within the existing agreement.
“Last-In, First-Out was a good approach – it has worked for a long time. Now that the stocks are reducing they want to review it again and hopefully it will be positive for Nova Scotia when they are done.”

Surveillance camera at a public pool in Titusville, Fla., captured a scary moment June 3 when a three-year-old girl fell into the water and nearly drowned.
Luckily, a quick-thinking teen was able to pull the unconscious girl from the water and deliver the CPR that saved her life.
“Never in my mind did I think I’d be in a situation like that where I need to perform CPR on a child,” Breanna Moseley, 18, told WESH-2 News.

Surveillance video from the Timber Trace apartments in Titusville shows the girl, whose name is being withheld, playing around the edges of the apartment complex’s pool.

It’s not clear whether she slips or jumps in, but once in the water the girl quickly becomes distressed, frantically flailing her arms and kicking as she tries to stay above water.
Amazingly, no one else in or nearby the pool notices for nearly two minutes, long enough for the child’s body to slip beneath the water.
“You can see in the pool people are around this young girl and she goes under and they don’t even notice,” Amy Matthews, a spokesperson for the Titusville Police Department, told CBS News 6 in Orlando.
But the child’s nine-year-old cousin did notice and pulled her unmoving body from the pool, whereupon Mosely immediately began to render first aid.
“I saw that she wasn’t breathing, so first instinct was to mouth-to-mouth and just give her air,” Moseley told WESH-2 News.
“She was able to cough up some water. Once I saw she was breathing, I was definitely relieved.”
Paramedics transported the child to a local hospital as a precautionary measure, and Titusville police credited Mosely for helping save the girl’s life.
“Breanna Moseley, 18, of Titusville, who was poolside and did not know the victim, began CPR on the child, who was lifeless and not breathing.” The department said in a press release.

Local media is reporting that the child’s aunt, Jasmine Johnson, is facing charges of child neglect for allowing the toddler to play by the pool with only Johnson’s 14-year-old daughter and her friend supervising.
The Florida Department of Children and Families is investigating the incident.
