Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
Details of Disappearance
Carmen Robinson was last seen exiting a bus at West Burnside Road and Holland Avenue in View Royal, two blocks from her View Royal home. She did not make it home.
Robinson worked as a dishwasher at the Ingraham Hotel on Douglas Street near Burnside Road East. After her shift on Saturday, December 8, 1973, she caught the bus home, intending to enjoy two days off. The Colwood girl was described as a quiet, well behaved student.
In 1982, serial killer Clifford Olson was living in Victoria. He confessed to killing 11 young men and women. He told police he knew where Robinson was buried. He led police to a rocky spot at Fort Rodd Hill, near Royal Roads University. Police used sonar machines to examine the ground but couldn't find any evidence of bodies.
During the original investigation in the 1970s, police identified a few suspects, but no charges were ever laid.
