Family told Pickton victim's remains not cremated, not fit for burial - Vancouver Is Awesome

Wednesday, March 27, 2019

The certificate lists the cremation date as Aug. 24, 2010, four months before Court gave the Freys the urn. It's signed by Lawrence Little of Aldergrove's Pacific Crematorium, but the date above Little's signature is Oct. 6, 2011, 10 months after coroner Owen Court gave the Freys the urn. Why the discrepancy in dates? There was no cremation. The certificate says the remains were "heated in cremation chamber to facilitate proper processing and patriation." Records show the remains were apparently heated, then broken up with a mallet to get them into the urn. "Wrapped in an envelope, rolled up in a towel and crushed with a mallet," Court confirmed. "This is exactly what was explained to the Freys’ lawyer, CPBC [funeral industry regulator Consumer Protection B.C.], the RCMP and anyone else who has asked." Little confirms this, saying correct protocols were followed. He said the use of the mallet was not taken lightly and after much discussion between he and Court. And, Court said, the family was told what they were being given. He said he signed the cremation certificate only to give the Freys an opportunity to bury their daughter. "Under no circumstances were the Freys misled," Court said. "Every aspect of the handling of the remains and reasons for their unusual consistency in the urn was explained to them in great detail. The conversation was held in my office in Burnaby, witnessed by a colleague and documented. "The Freys left happy and specifically asked me to thank Lawrence for all he did," he said. A week before Little signed the cremation certificate and 10 months after the remains' return to the Freys, B.C. chief coroner Lisa Lapointe had told Frey lawyer Neil Chantler in a September 2011 letter, "the remains were not suitable for cremation." Court says the remains were processed "in a way that did not expose them to the direct flame as it was explained to me that they would have essentially vaporized." Little confirmed that in an interview. He said laws were followed, all remains treated with reverence. But with this confusion over the remains and burial requirements, the Freys asked undertaker Sandra Poelvoorde to investigate. She asked Simon Fraser University forensic anthropologist Dr. Mark Skinner to examine the remains. He found them consistent with the finding of Marnie Frey's remains on Pickton's farm. However, Skinner added, "I can only say that the bone fragments could be human but need not be." Skinner confirms the email exchanges took place but will not release his full report. Poelvoorde said t...

Police intelligence on heightened alert as recent high profile murders are apparently causing paranoia and chaos in ... - Voiceonline.com

Wednesday, November 30, 2016

IHIT announced that Jason Francis Wallace, 27, had been charged with second-degree murder in Green’s death. Police sources confirmed that Wallace was a member of the 856 gang that originated in Aldergrove. What is baffling is that the 856 group and the Hells Angels were cooperating with one another. In fact, according to one media report, Leonard Pelletier, who had been charged with drug trafficking along with Wallace in 2015, is Green’s cousin. October 26 * Mohammad Rafiq, 44, associated to the Hells Angels’ White Rock Chapter, was shot shortly after 1 a.m. in the 6000-block of Broadway in Burnaby. He was located in a vehicle partially lodged inside a residence at the intersection of Broadway and Fell Avenue. He survived. CTV showed a high-powered rifle that was found at the scene. * Shortly after 7 a.m., dismembered parts of a body that had been scattered in the 24300-block of Robertson Crescent were found. On October 28, police announced he was 27-year-old Shaun Alan Clary and was believed to have gang associations. Staff-Sgt. Lindsey HoughtonPhoto by Chandra Bodalia THE investigations are still ongoing into the high profile murders and at least one attempted murder that have rocked the Lower Mainland in the past month and a half as police try to figure out any connections between them. At this stage, there is nothing that can be publicly disclosed, police say. However, there is one thing that they are sure of, and that is, as gang expert Staff-Sgt. Lindsey Houghton of the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit of B.C. put ...

Man affiliated with Hells Angels shot in Burnaby. Body parts found in Langley were of Shaun Alan Clary. Retaliation ... - Voiceonline.com

Hells Angel Robert (Bob) Keith Green, 56, of Burnaby. Police sources confirmed that Wallace was a member of the 856 gang that originated in Aldergrove.Green was murdered in Langley on October 16. Langley RCMP received a report of suspicious circumstances in the area of 23700 72nd Avenue and found Green suffering from injuries consistent with foul play and IHIT was called in.What is baffling is that the 856 group and the Hells Angels were cooperating with one another.In fact, according to one media report, Leonard Pelletier, who had been charged with drug trafficking along with Wallace in 2015, is Green’s cousin.The VOICE reported last week: “Police sources emphasize that it is too early to speculate, but there could be any number of reasons. In fact, it might not even be gang-related; after all, fights have taken place in the past over a female.“It could be internal fighting among 856 gang members, or it could have been a fight between Green and the 856 group.”Police sources told The VOICE this week that just because all these incidents have taken place recently that does not mean that they are connected. That is because these gang members live a lifestyle of “unbelievably high risk” and so at any time they can become victims. ON Wednesday (October 26), police received multiple calls of shots fired in the 6000-block of Broadway in Burnaby and located a vehicle partially lodged inside a residence at the intersection of Broadway and Fell Avenue. The lone occupant of the vehicle was transported to hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.Occupants of the home were not injured as a result of this incident, but were severely shaken.“We are satisfied with the progress we are making on this investigation thus far,” said Sgt. Annie Linteau, Media Relations Officer, Lower Mainland District. “A number of police resources will continue to look at a possible motive for this incident and look at who could potentially be involved.”CTV showed a high-powered rifle that was found at the scene.Burnaby RCMP are asking anyone who may have any information about this incident to contact the Burnaby RCMP at 604-294-7922.

Nanaimo remembers educator, activist and elder 'Auntie Ellen' - Nanaimo News Bulletin

Wednesday, March 27, 2019

Auntie Ellen.' Ellen White, Kwulasulwut, died Tuesday at age 95, and her funeral was held Saturday morning at the Beban Park Social Centre. White was a member of the Order of Canada and the Order of British Columbia and her obituary remembers her as an "educator, cultural knowledge keeper, author, linguist, herbalist, healer, traditional midwife, and political activist and advocate." She was one of the founders of the Tillicum Haus Aboriginal Friendship Centre and was an elder-in-residence in Vancouver Island University's First Nations studies program. "She possessed a pure, kind and radiant heart," said Les Malbon, who described himself as one of White's adopted grandchildren as he delivered her eulogy Saturday. White's name, Kwulasulwut, translates to ‘many stars' and Malbon alluded to that as he addressed the people gathered in the social centre. "I look out now and I see the many stars," he said. "I see how she impacted the community. I see how much she loved her family and I appreciated, personally, how much that love changed me and how it's changed all of us to be better people and behoove us to be kind to one another and to work towards a world of unity." Malbon said the White home was always filled with visitors, and Ellen White also travelled to meet people and sh...
