Re: Mounties Launch Belated Hunt For Missing Couple (July 14, 2010)

Photos of the McCanns’ motor home show that it was an impressively large vehicle, certainly worth a lot of money. When the Mounties arrived on the scene, it was said to be on fire, without any occupants nearby. This, apparently, aroused no suspicions on the part of the officers of foul play and no alarm bells went off. Who pointlessly sets a fine-looking motor home alight and then abandons it? Why did it take five wasted days and a missing-persons’ report to finally move members of the force to return to the scene?
