The Surrey House of Horrors Revisited
I've talked about the Surrey House of Horrors before yet I think it's important to follow up on these stories lest they be forgotten forever. The Surrey House of Horrors was a crack house in Surrey
Sex trade worker Annette Allan was found dead dumped in the Fraser River back in 2001. Police say she was murdered at the Surrey House of Horrors crack house. Sex trade worker Yvonne Boen's DNA was found in the same crack house as well as on the Pickton farm.
The crack house was at 13832-108th. It was built in the 1940's and has since been torn down and a new house stands in it's place. I wasn't familiar with the famed crack house at the time but I do remember a house fire a few doors up the street. I don't know if it was a meth lab or not but I do remember seeing graffiti on the house that said "Hells Angels Pimp Whalley Girls."
Joseph Francis Legassie, 38, of Surrey was originally charged with the murder of Annette Allan at the Surrey House of Horrors but that charge was dropped and replaced with the lesser charge of unlawful confinement.
McPherson told the court Legassie is not accused of actually locking her up, stabbing her or killing her, but having consented to the stabbing. Because of his "unique position" as the person running the shack, McPherson said, Legassie's actions and lack of actions made him a party to crime.
We know that the court was told the East Vancouver Hells Angels hired contract killer Mickie (Phil) Smith to kill Paul Percy Soluk at a crack house in Surrey. Smith said a man he called Yurik helped him chop up and dispose of the body. Smith said "Yurik's not an Angel but he works with the Angels. I know he's done a lot of hits." Paul Soluk was killed in 1999. Note that this connection documents the East Van Hells Angels involvement with Surrey crack houses.
Forum blogger Greg Carr claims at the time there was a vehicle with the plate number 2641-HA parked at a house without a posted address between 13710 and 13734 108 Ave in Surrey. That's awfully close to where the Surrey House of Horrors was. Carr seems to think Hells Angels lived there at one time. It's relatively close to Gus' shop and the Shadow club as well.
It seems as though Annette Allan was falsely accused of being a rat too. Either their paranoia is delusional or they have no creativity whatsoever in making up reasons for killing people.
In early summer 2001, Juel Stanton, his brother Norman and two other associates allegedly took control of a Whalley grow operation, forced the owner to work for them and then severely beat him. The men also allegedly forced the owner to reveal any other grow-ops he knew about. Somehow that act was twisted to become they beat up someone for stealing from a Hells Angels grow op. Taking over an existing grow op is very different that beating up someone for doing a grow rip.
In that case Juel got off but his brother was convicted. RCMP said the case was an offshoot from a separate investigation about several homicides at a notorious crack house on 108th Avenue called "The House of Horrors." Somehow they were related.
So are Juel Stanton's missing associates being hunted down for getting carried away and taking over other Hells Angels grow ops or because they know enough to implicate Giles as the ring leader of their plot? Please advise.
Kerry Ryan was connected to John Punko as well as Ron Lising and Randy Potts. Is Giles going to betray all of them like he betrayed Stanton? Is anyone going to fess up that Giles knew about it all along? Oh wait, someone already did. That's why heads have started to roll.
And let's not forget how Hells Angels associate Eric Sandberg told Agent 22 when he visited Vancouver that he could get the agent any kind of gun he wanted and that "they" were ready to wipe out all the competition in Surrey. They were both Hells Angels associates.
