From the RCMP Cold Case Files
Location : Medicine Hat, Alberta
Details : Michael MASSON, a 27 year old male, lived with his girlfriend in Medicine Hat, Alberta. Michael was known to have been employed as a labourer in Medicine Hat, Southern Alberta and in Saskatchewan.
On June 5, 1989, Michael checked into the “Hat Motel” in Medicine Hat, left within two hours of checking in, and from all appearances, never returned to his hotel room. Michael was not seen again by family or friends. On July 31, 1989, his decomposed body was located in a shallow grave south of Medicine Hat, Alberta.
It is believed that the motivation for this crime may be connected to an argument that Michael allegedly had with some associates on the night he disappeared.
