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

Saturday, March 2, 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...

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

Saturday, March 2, 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!

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.

Thursday, December 14, 2017

When Marrisa Shen left her Burnaby, B.C., home on July 18, it was nothing out of the ordinary.According to her family, on sunny days the 13-year-old liked to go for walks in Burnaby's Central Park and listen to music."She was one of those people who has earphones in, loud music while she's walking," said her older brother, who asked not to be named as the investigation into Marrisa's death continues."Usually, we don't think much of it because she does go out around five or six [p.m.] and then she comes back every time around seven or eight-ish.""This time, she didn't come back."Dozens of people attended Marrisa's funeral on Friday. (Cliff Shim/CBC)'I feel numb'Marrisa's family reported her missing that night. Hours later, the RCMP found her body in the park. Police have released few details about her death since, including whether she was killed in the park, but the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team considers her death to have been from a random attack."I feel numb.
