MISSION, BC

In March 2013, young mother Rachel Pernosky was supposed to meet her friend to go shopping. When she didn’t arrive, her friend became worried and contacted Rachel’s sister Brittany. Brittany went to Rachel’s house, and found no sign of forced entry, and Rachel’s phone left at home, and her music still playing in the house. As the mystery unravelled, what happened to Rachel would shock the local community.
