Pamela Cameron's parents

Remembering Pamela

Friends and family to gather Oct. 4 to remember murdered South Surrey teen

Friends of a former Semiahmoo Peninsula family whose daughter was murdered two decades ago in South Surrey will gather Saturday (Oct. 4) at the garden created in the wake of the teen’s death.

Bonnie Moy said she and others who knew Pamela Cameron will place flowers at the Forever Garden (located on the east side of the South Surrey arena) at 10 a.m., and anyone who wants to join them in remembrance – of Cameron or any young person who has died before their time – is welcome.

Cameron was 16 when she was grabbed off of 152 Street in broad daylight and killed in a vacant lot, by a man who had been released from prison less than a year prior after serving two concurrent 10-year sentences for rape and robbery.

Last month’s killing of Surrey teen Serena Vermeersch brought the memories sharply back into focus.

The body of Vermeersch, 17, was found Sept. 16 near train tracks in the 14600-block of 66 Avenue, and a high-risk sex offender who was released from jail to live in Surrey last year has been charged in connection with her death.

Moy said there are no formal plans for Saturday’s tribute; it is simply to remember.
