      The RCMP is continuing a grisly search for evidence on a rural property in the North Okanagan where human remains have been found.

      This comes in the wake of five women going missing in the Vernon and Sicamous areas in less than two years.

      A resident of the home on Salmon River Road, Curtis Wayne Sagmoen, has been taken into custody in connection with firearms offences, disguising his face with intent to commit an offence, and uttering threats. Sagmoen was born in 1980.

      These events have some in the media seeking comments from Lorimer Shenher, who was the first detective in the Vancouver Police Department assigned to the investigation into missing and murdered women in the Downtown Eastside.

      Shenher later wrote a critically acclaimed book,That Lonely Section of Hell: The Botched Investigation of a Serial Killer Who Almost Got Away, which highlighted shortcomings in the investigation into serial killer Robert Pickton.

      Today, Shenher issued a lengthy tweetstorm explaining why he's declining to speak about what's taking place in the current investigation of the Salmon River Road property.
