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

Wednesday, March 27, 2019

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 the findings made her hesitant to release the remains for burial. "I am concerned at the possibility of long bone fragments," Poelvoorde told Skinner. "I cannot in good faith just tell them (the family) what they want to hear just so they can bury what might not be their daughter," she said. Poelvoorde told Stephen Fonseca of the BC Coroners Service in October 2011 that Skinner's comments led to her to doubt the remains were Marnie Frey's. "While I think it is likely this is Marnie, I don't have a lot of trust in how the process occurred to say without doubt, this is Marnie," Poelvoorde told Skinner in October 2011. Five months later, in a note to Poelvoorde, Consumer Protection B.C. investigator Eileen Diersch wrote that "there is enough evidence to warrant that . . . Frey's remains, and the remains of the other cremated that night were not cremated in a respectful and dignified manner and ‘may have been exposed to conduct illegal under the criminal code.'" But the RCMP investigated later and declined to pursue charges. The fight frustrates the Freys to this day. Marnie's remains still sit on a Campbell River funeral home shelf. Let's block ads!

Trusted caregiver jailed for stealing $260K from elderly B.C. couple - CBC News

Saturday, March 02, 2019

A former caregiver who gradually stole $260,000 from an elderly Coquitlam, B.C., couple over a period of 16 months has been sentenced to a year in jail.Fifty-year-old Antonette Dizon of Burnaby pleaded guilty earlier this year to a single count of fraud over $5,000, admitting that she regularly withdrew $1,000 in cash a day from the couple's chequing and savings accounts.On Thursday, Provincial Court Judge Robin McQuillan sentenced Dizon to 12 months in jail, to be followed by 18 months of probation. The judge said Dizon is remorseful and has suffered serious consequences because of the media attention on her case, but that needed to be balanced with the fact that she took advantage of vulnerable people over a long period of time."She had unlimited opportunities to reflect on what she was doing and to correct or at least stop her conduct. She did not do so," McQuillan wrote.Dizon began caring for the couple, Henry and Helen Abfalter, in September 2014, when they were both 86 years old and living in a retirement home, according to the sentencing decision. Both were in deteriorating health and needed help with their daily activities.One of those activities was bank...

Police seeking video from Marrisa Shen vigil and funeral - CTV News

Thursday, December 14, 2017

Foster said. "This case has drawn attention nationwide and because of the attention it's drawn [the videos are] something we'd be remiss not to ask for." The vigil was held in Burnaby's Central Park on July 22 and the funeral was held at Mountain View Cemetery in Vancouver on July 28. Police have urged anyone with video or even pictures to share them. After weeks of investigation, IHIT has made some progress; Foster said the homicide team is in the process of following up on nearly 200 tips related to Shen’s murder, and has identified more than 90 persons of interest. Persons of interest are not suspects, Foster noted, only individuals who might have information relevant to the case. The 90 or so who have been identified know who they are. IHIT has also managed to narrow the timeline for Shen's killing; surveillance video has been obtained showing the teenager walking on the south side of Central Boulevard and crossing McKaye Avenue at 7:38 p.m. on July 18, around five hours before her body was discovered in Central Park. Previously, the last known sighting was at 6 p.m., when Shen was seen leaving her family's apartment in dark shorts and a dark T-shirt. On Wednesday, Foster also confirmed for the first time that Shen was likely killed in the park, and not slain elsewhere and transported. "It should be noted that this does not change our belief that Ms. Shen's homicide was random," Foster added. Anyone with information on the case is asked to call the IHIT tip line at 1-877-551-IHIT, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.

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...
