I found these newspaper articles from the Edmonton Journal, May 27, 1981:

EDMONTON JOURNAL. Wednesday, May 27, 1981 C19 Affordable may mean $100,000 Bodies still missing LETHBRIDGE (CP) Police are still mystified by a case in which a man has confessed to murdering three people whose bodies have never been found. Jeffery Heath, 31, Kathy Heath, 33, both of East Wenatchee, and Kenneth Solmon, 25, of Yakima, have been missing from the Lethbridge area since February. Steven Lee Hauden-schild, 25, originally from California, has said he killed the three people who were linked to an American motorcycle club. But police have not uncovered any trace of the trio despite three months of investigation.

BIKER SENTENCED TO LIFE IN KILLING LETHBRIDGE, Alberta (AP)-Steven Lee Haudenschild, a motorcycle gang member who claims he killed three Washington state residents, has been sentenced to life imprisonment for the murder of a former Lethbridge motorcycle gang president Prosecutor Vaughan Hartigan told the court Hau-denschild revealed the details of the March 4 murder after being arrested March 19 by Vancouver police. Haudenschild pleaded guilty to first-degree murder in the March 4 shooting death of Charles Drager of the Ghost Riders motorcycle gang. Drager was killed in a north Lethbridge house. In his confession, Haudenschild also said he killed Jeffery and Kathy Heath of East Wenatchee, 31 and 33, respectively, and Kenneth Solmon, 25, of Yakima, between Feb.

5 and Feb. 20 after he had "fronted them $15,000 to come to Canada because the heat was on them." When they failed to repay the money, Haudenschild claims he ground their bodies into fertilizer pellets at the Lethbridge Rendering Plant, where he once worked. Hartigan said Haudenschild has not been indicted in those deaths because of the continuing investigation. Authorities in Canada and Port Angeles, have been trying to determine the veracity of Hauden-schild's confession to the supposed triple slaying. Police searched the Lethbridge Rendering Plant and the bottom of the Oldman River for remains of the bodies of the Heaths and Solmon but found nothing.

Ugh. Fertilizer pellets. That's pure evil. There is no excuse for murder. But they are the wrong kind people to owe money to from not paying it back. Playing with fire.
 
Discrepancies in the missing persons report-
She did not have aliases- she was married 3 times, those were her married names- Hinrichs her maiden name
Her name is spelled with a K, she had dark brown/black hair, tho she did wear wigs from time to time, she was 5’9”-5’10”, her eyes were not blue

Thank you for the clarification! Has anyone in the family submitted DNA to NamUs?
