Alleged killer of Armstrong teen writes to police

On Wednesday, police department received an anonymous letter in which the writer came clean about killing the 18-year-old Taylor Van Diest. The writer hints that Diest was perhaps brutally tortured before she was killed.

RCMP Cpl. Dan Moskaluk said: “At this point in time we will not speculate whether the letter is authentic, though we are working to determine who may have sent it. Our primary concern remains the safety of the public. We would hope that the person or persons responsible share our concern.”

It seems like the police has only shared this detail on the case as a precautionary measure. Moskaluk warned the residents of central and North Okanagan to stay alert.

Teenagers are particularly being directed to travel in groups, stay in well lighted areas and inform their friends or family about where they are headed and when they expect to arrive.

Moskaluk said: “We recommend traveling in a group, or asking parents or friends for a ride. Travel areas of the community that have good visibility. Let family or friends know where you are going and when you expect to arrive. If you have a cell phone carry it. Report any suspicious activity right away.”
