New Sagmoen allegations

CTV News in Vancouver has linked an alleged violent incident from January, 2013 to Curtis Wayne Sagmoen — the 36-year-old with family connections to the farm near Silver Creek where RCMP discovered the remains of Traci Genereaux.

RCMP documents — obtained by CTV News Vancouver — seem to back up witness reports that describe an altercation between a man and a women at a Maple Ridge townhouse, that at the time was owned by Sagmoen.

Neighbours recall hearing a woman yelling and calling for help while fighting with Sagmoen in a common area in the townhouse complex.

“We heard a bunch of screaming and there was a young lady there. She was lying on the ground, he was on top of her, and she was bleeding and screaming.

“He kept yelling that she had stolen something from him. He ran away, and she was left there bleeding,” recalled neighbour Kevin Robertson.

RCMP documents tell a similar story.

Police were called to the townhouse complex to a report that “there was a male chasing a female southbound on Gilker Hill Road and she was yelling for help. The female yelled the male hit her with a hammer.”

An officer searched the male’s residence but didn’t find a bloody hammer. And another officer tracked the woman down in a cab, but she refused to provide a statement or let the officer view her injuries.

“It appears (the male) was ripped off by a known Surrey prostitute,” the report says. “Neither want to pursue the matter.”

The event was marked “unfounded” and it wasn’t sent to crown counsel to consider the laying of any charges.

Sagmoen, who is currently in custody, has six counts against him in connection with an Aug. 28 incident near Falkland where a sex worker alleges she was threatened with a gun before escaping.

In October, RCMP found the remains of Vernon teenager Traci Genereaux buried at a Shuswap farm owned by Sagmoen's parents. No charges have been laid in connection to her death which is considered suspicious.
