Loren Donn Leslie was only 15-years-old when police discovered her remains on a lonely logging road off Highway 16 in British Columbia. Since the late 1960s, women and girls have gone missing from the communities that surround Highway 16, or been found murdered along the desolate 450-mile stretch of road known as the Highway of Tears.
