Newfoundland police privately confirmed Mullin was in B.C., the source said. at this time. Apart from sketches of the suspect circulating at the time, little evidence was left to prove Mullin’s existence. The rapist’s sketch matched Mullin’s appearance at the time.
Disappearance of “Elizabeth” of Campbell River in March 1981: Several witnesses at the time knew Shannon Mullin and saw him leave with Elizabeth. She has not been seen since then. Soon after, Mullin disappeared from Kelowna.
December 1981 – Murders Dana Bradley in Newfoundland after Mullin’s abrupt departure from Kelowna in the fall of 1981. Mullin left Kelowna claiming to have returned to Newfoundland for Christmas in the late fall of 1980. Mullin claimed he would move to Edmonton after his sister Elizabeth disappeared in the fall of 1981. Did he also come home for Christmas that year? The description of Dana’s killer matches that of Murrin. A member of the Newfoundland Police Service allegedly identified Mullin as the prime suspect.
