Lou Montgomery


Lou Montgomery worked in north central British Columbia through the ’90s. During that time, another five young women vanished or were found murdered along Highway 16, the “Highway of Tears.” While local speculation as to who could be responsible for these crimes tended to center on long-haul drivers, Lou felt it was more likely to be someone who knew the area well—a logger, a rancher, a hunter or someone else who was a member of the community and had a reason to be in the woods where the bodies of two of the young women were eventually discovered.


Haunted by the belief that their killer was a neighbor, perhaps even a friend, Lou tried to find some peace in writing The Dumping Ground, coming in 2016.


Due to the sensitive subject matter, Lou prefers to write under a pseudonym.
