Mounties link Texan to Highway of Tears murders

Bobby Jack Fowler

Bobby Jack Fowler, a roofer who roamed throughout North American, has been linked to two of the victims in a cluster of cases involving missing/murdered women in Canada, known as the Highway of Tears.

Fowler, a Texas native, died in an Oregon prison in 2006, but investigators are still exploring connections between him and the victims of Galveston’s killing fields.

In 1984, a young reporter at the Austin American Statesman received a letter detailing “irregular” actions taken during traffic stops along Highway 59 in San Jacinto County by Sheriff James Cecil “Humpy” Parker and his deputies. His reports led to state and federal investigations that landed Sheriff Parker, his son Gary Parker, and two other deputies in prison. The echoes still haunt this small community today.
