  • Details of Disappearance
    On the morning of Aug 18, 1997, Wendy Ratte dropped her husband off for work and then she simply vanished. Her white Plymouth van was found in a parking lot at what is now Value Village. She has not been seen or heard from again. There was some speculation that as a dual citizen, she may have voluntarily left the country for the United Sates, but nothing borne out in that direction, nor have police ruled out entirely the possibility of foul play.
    On December 5, 2008 Denis Ratte, Wendy's husband was arrested for her murder. He was charged with one count of 2nd Degree Murder and was found guilty of the crim in 2010.
