Woman brutally raped for drug debt dies of injuries
Tragically, Janice Shore, the Surrey homeless woman who was brutally raped and beaten for a drug debt on December 2nd has succumbed to her injuries and passed away. Now the case becomes a homicide. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Janice and her family. I am told Janice was very soft spoken and very polite. This kind of tragedy diminishes all of us.
We all know who the drug debt was to and it wasn’t the UN. Bob Roth was decapitated for a drug debt to the Whiteboy Posse in Edmonton. The Whiteboy Posse work for the Hells Angels. We need to follow up on this case because this kind of deranged violence is not acceptable. It’s time to get rid of these drug dealing predators that bring so much violence into our communities.
[New Surrey Leader article] The Surrey Leader originally reported that the person who found her found her chained to a tree. The police claim she was not chained to a tree when they found her. Ya think maybe the guy untied her? That would make more sense then lying about her being chained to a tree.
The fact is she was brutally beaten to death and sexually assaulted. She had broken bones. Her forehead and jaw were literally caved in. Hitting a woman is bad enough but hitting her hard enough to cave in her forehead and her jaw is deranged. Her eye was scratched out. There was no need for that. We’re talking about a petite homeless woman. This kind of violence is unacceptable. Reporting the psychopath who did this to the police is not being a rat. Failing to do so is.

STATEMENT FROM THE FAMILY OF JANICE SHORE TO THE MEDIA
Read by Cpl. Bari Emam of IHIT on February 21, 2013
"We, the family of Janice Shore would like to issue a public statement in relation to her tragic death. We remember Janice’s childhood as normal as any of our childhoods. We never thought she would die under such horrible circumstances. Janice battled with mental health issues most of her life. However, she did not deserve to die in such a way.
Although distanced from most of her family for many years and living a life which may have ultimately led to her tragic death, Janice was still a member of our family whose death we are grieving. We believe that due to her unfortunate life circumstances, Janice did not have much of a voice while she was alive. After her death she no longer has any voice period.
We would appeal to anyone who may have information about Janice’s death to please contact the police. If you are able to provide any information which may assist the police in investigating the murder of Janice we would we would be grateful for any help you can offer.
We are making this appeal particularly to those who knew Janice and may have valuable information which can help the police solve her murder. Janice leaves three grown children, two brothers and one sister behind. At the present time we are grieving Janice’s loss and respectfully ask for our privacy to be honoured. Thank you."
This raises more concerns. Any drug dealer that gives a homeless person with a mental illness free drugs then beats the life out of them for payment is a predator. A homeless person with a mental illness. Where have we heard that before? Gordon Campbell closed Riverview and put all the mentally ill on the street while he gave himself two fat pay raises and a gold plated pension. If that isn’t evil, I don’t know what is.
In today’s age it is hard for many people with jobs to budget their money to last two weeks. It’s even worse for someone with a mental illness. Expecting them to budget their money in one payment for the whole month is unrealistic. Especially when that money isn’t enough to last the month and forces people to decide between food or housing.
