[Girl's] alleged murderer vanished 30 years ago now police may have found Dennis Melvyn Howe

For 30 years, a Saskatchewan drifter somehow eluded one of the largest manhunts in Canadian history despite his face becoming part of the urban landscape – on billboards, posters and newspapers. Named as the sole suspect after a missing nine-year-old girl tumbled dead from a refrigerator in his Toronto flophouse, Dennis Melvyn Howe became a figure of outrage and fear and then a man of mystery.

Now, an appliance repairman in Idaho says Canadian authorities think he may be Dennis Howe, and police confirm his claim.

At the risk of sounding like I'm slamming Canada (well,I guess I am on *this* subject) I say that the US should refuse to extradite him to Canada unless we're guaranteed that he gets no more than 6 months,is given a freshly plumped pillow every night,is served prime quality sirloin every night and is allowed day release Monday through Friday to attend sensitivity training classes at a local community college.

Canada places certain conditions on extraditing *our* murderers to the US,so we should be able to do the same with theirs.

That’s an odd name the girl had, may she rest in peace.

A very strange story, but I’d think his identity could be readily established, if they have fingerprints and/or DNA.

Weird story. ID guy’s face doesn’t look like the Canadian guy they’re looking for.

He’s a suspect. They haven’t even bothered to tell him not to leave town, let alone arrest him.

Perhaps the publicity will surface the real killer?

He doesn’t seem very worried about it.

It is very weird. The guy claims he caught the killer and turned him over to police, but police killed the killer. Should be simple enough. Did this guy exist in 1982? Does anyone from his high school remember him? Did he work anywhere before the murder? If not, he got some splainin.

Momma must have been either a hippie or a redskin.

I don’t think it’s the same guy. The nose is way different.

He brought the finger of suspicion upon himself. Apparently he is not able to establish where he was 30 years ago.

“Momma must have been either a hippie or a redskin.”

Or a member of ‘The Nations’, which is politically-correct-speak for native/eskimo Canadians.

Sounds like there is a good chance it is him. I mean, that is one cockamamie story. Most likely explanation is it is the guy.

We should refuse extradition UNLESS they promise to execute him if found guilty.

So does this guy have brothers and sisters? Cousins aunts uncles ?

Where did he go to high school?

A quick answer on those things should establish who he is.

Why does this man in Idaho today have such a deep and abiding interest in this crime committed 30 years ago in Canada?

You have a point. I remember how Canada handled that bastard Charles Ng.

There was a man using the name John Melvin Wipert went missing from
Ptarmigan Lake Lodge in Alaska in 2009 summer the image appears
With other images for Dennis Melvyn Howe ,I say. Wipert is actually Dennis
Howe read this very strange story look at the pic and see what you think
I did not post this image on the Internet ,it was posted by someone I shared this story with.
I think Wipert looks a lot more like Dennis Howe than the man in Idaho
I told the Authorities in Canada and U S A about this don’t know if they took it seriously or not
