    FILE No.: 1995-39764
    For Wendy Rene Smith, April 13, 1995 marked her very first shift at Fantasia, a Richmond Hill adult night club. Sadly, it was also the last night anybody saw her alive.

    The 33-year-old exotic dancer started work at the club, located at 10097 Yonge St., at 10 p.m. Wendy was supposed to return to her Toronto home the next morning at 3 a.m., but she never arrived. Three days later, on April 16, 1995, her roommate reported her missing.

    Wendy had brown hair, green eyes and a nosering; she was 5'3" and weighed about 120 pounds. She was last seen at the night club wearing a black skirt, black sweater and black shoes.

    At times, Wendy also went by the last name Laughlin.

    'You never know. So you just keep looking'

    At the moment, for example, he is looking into the possibility that an exotic dancer named Wendy Smith, who went missing from the Richmond Hill area 10 years ago, may have ended up at the B.C. pig farm of Robert Pickton, where dozens of missing prostitutes were allegedly murdered. Although more than 25 women have been identified from DNA samples taken from the farm, some samples remain unidentified, and Det. Gore, for reasons he refuses to make public, believes Ms. Smith could be one of them.

    On the face of it, solving the mystery should be relatively simple. Det. Gore has learned that a hospital had processed a Pap smear taken from Ms. Smith shortly before her disappearance, and wants to match the DNA on it to the sample from the Pickton farm. But the hospital has refused to release the sample, citing patient confidentiality, even though Ms. Smith's family has authorized its release.

    "To get it, I need to prove she's dead," Det. Gore says. "But I can't prove she's dead without the sample."
