The property happens to have a significant tectonic fault line running beneath it. The Chase River Fault is a strike-slip tectonic fault which bisects Gabriola Island and passes below downtown Nanaimo, then along the path of the Chase River and the reservoirs that make up the Colliery Dam.[7][8][9]

On Canada Day long weekend 2002, tenants of the home organized a houseparty.[26] People were talking about the event, days in advance.[11] People were coming and going from the home, day and night, from Friday until Monday morning. A group who attended later said they had only stayed for a few minutes, due to the "rough vibe" at the event.[10]

This was the first location where Chris brought Lisa and Dallas.[26] An hour later, the three moved on to a second houseparty, in the Cathers Lake area.[27]

Several hours later, Lisa was brought back to 827 Nanaimo Lakes Road, where she was murdered, then buried in the backyard at 49.14502, -123.97504.[28]
