In 2008, Jamrul Hussain visited a gas station in Detroit with his two-year-old step-daughter, Tangena Hussain, who was in his vehicle. He left the little girl in the locked car while he went to buy a few things at the gas station. When he returned to his car a few minutes later, Tangena was gone. Despite the station having camera surveillance, Jamrul’s car just happened to be parked out of camera range, so there was no way to verify what happened to Tangena.
Soon the police started suspecting Jamrul to be the one who actually kidnapped the girl, especially considering the fact that after she disappeared, instead of searching for her or calling the police, Jamrul went to pick up his girlfriend and the girl’s mother at her workplace. He acted strangely when she asked where her daughter was. Tangena’s disappearance was not reported to the authorities until after Jamrul drove Nilufa back to the gas station. The two-year-old has never been found.
In 1957, a teenager by the name of Leo Lamontagne was working the overnight shift alone at a service station in his home town in Winnipeg. Around four in the morning, a police officer stopped by the station and found the young boy slumped over the office desk in a pool of blood. He had been struck on the head three times with a blunt object, and was immediately transferred to a hospital, but unfortunately died a few days later.
The police found a pool of blood in the garage which showed that Leo was probably attacked there. He was able to get himself to the office but didn’t have enough strength to call for help. There was also money stolen from the cash register. What police found interesting is that two hours before the police officer found Leo’s body, two young men pulled into the station to get some gas, but nobody came out to serve them. In the end, they saw a man going into the station’s office. He informed the two men that he was washing cars in the garage and that they can’t currently use the pumps. From the camera footage, police were able to identify the man to be in his late thirties and definitely not Leo Lamontagne. The final conclusion was that he murdered Leo while attempting the robbery, but he was never found and the case was never closed.
