The police protocol that could have saved Russell Williams’ victim still hasn’t been put in place, reports the Toronto Star.
When a suspicious truck was seen outside of the home of Jessica Lloyd, a Belleville officer didn’t make note of the license plate. That same night Williams raped, abducted, and killed her.
But neither the Belleville police nor the Ontario Provincial Province have implemented requirements that make officers document the plates of suspicious vehicles. And neither plan on enforcing it.
The RCMP, however, trains cadets to do computerized searches on suspicious vehicles, especially ones found unoccupied and parked in a field—Williams’ Pathfinder was the night he kidnapped Lloyd.
