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

Saturday, March 2, 2019

Port Coquitlam, B.C. serial killer Robert Pickton's victims. HERE is part one. A small urn sits on a shelf in a Campbell River funeral home. It supposedly contains the remains of Marnie Frey, one of Port Coquitlam serial killer Robert Pickton's many victims. Parents Lynn and Rick aren't sure. Neither are two undertakers. The urn is likely to stay there until the Freys get answers acceptable to them from police and government about the handling of the remains. Marnie Frey disappeared from Vancouver's Downtown Eastside in 1997, one of six women Pickton was convicted of killing. All that were found of her on Pickton's farm were a partial jawbone and some teeth. Her parents picked up the urn in December 2010 from regional coroner Owen Court. The Freys and Marnie's daughter Brittney hoped to lay Marnie to rest in Campbell River and end their ordeal. They brought the urn to Boyd's Funeral Home with that intention. Instead, the nightmare continued. With no cremation certificate or cremation disc with an identification number, they were told in Campbell River there could be no burial. A cremation certificate did eventually show up, but it has proven insufficient in getting Marnie Fre...

Personal approach brings comfort at life’s most difficult time - Campbell River Mirror

Saturday, March 2, 2019

When you call, even in the middle of the night, you're speaking with a funeral director," says Eric Toneff, manager of Campbell River's Boyd's Funeral. "Whether there's just been a death or you have questions several days later, we encourage people to phone us. The biggest comfort we can offer is simply providing peace of mind." Recently purchased by Lonsdale Funeral Group, an independently owned funeral provider with locations in Nanaimo and Ladysmith, Boyd's will remain local and be able to offer the community some new options, says Toneff, who also owns Toneff Funeral Home in the Comox Valley. Comfort and peace of mind Toneff, who has worked in almost every area of funeral service through his career, looks forward to working with Campbell River families. Coming to the North Island in 2010, Toneff envisioned a way for families to make arrangements from the comfort of their home while creating meaningful ceremonies unique to their loved one and community. "Losing a loved can be a confusing and emotional time, and we've found that families are more comfortable in familiar surroundings, free from stress and pressure, where they're more likely to make sound decisions based on their family's needs," he explains. Without the need for large formal offices, view...

Minister's response to Pickton victim family complaint against Coroner penned by service itself - Alaska Highway News

Saturday, March 2, 2019

The Coroners Service did not respond to requests for comment. Meanwhile, Frey's daughter's remains, a partially cremated jawbone smashed with a hammer to fit it into an urn, remains on a Campbell River funeral home shelf. Frey is afraid if he goes ahead and buries her, he will be breaking the law. Marnie vanished from Vancouver's squalid Downtown Eastside in 1997, leaving behind a baby daughter. Her remains were found on Pickton's Port Coquitlam farm, Canada's largest-ever crime scene. The pig farmer was convicted in Frey's death, along with those of five others in 2007. He remains in the Port-Cartier Institution prison in Quebec serving a life sentence without possibility of parole until 2032. He confessed to a cell plant to killing 49 women. The Freys received Marnie's remains from the Coroners Service in 2010. They were told they had been cremated. Two funeral directors later told them the remains had received minimal heat. Coroner Owen Court had handled the disposition of the remains, taking them to Abbotsford funeral director Lawrence Little, who maintains all remains were handled with reverence. Little said the remains were so small that he applied some heat in a cremator to make them brittle after which they were put in an envelope, wrapped in a towel and broken up with a mallet. The Freys rejected this, saying Marnie's remains were mutilated. They filed numerous complaints, including one to Consumer Protection BC, which investigated the case. Other investigations were also done, including one by the RCMP. Crown prosecutors approved no charges. Unsatisfied with the findings, the family reached out to Eby. That correspondence was passed to Farnworth's office. After saying the Freys could bury their child, Farnworth said, "there are no further actions available." @font-face { font-family: "MS 明朝"; }@font-face { font-family: Cambria; }p.MsoNormal, li.MsoNormal, div.MsoNormal { margin: 0cm 0cm 0.0001pt; font-size: 12pt; font-family: "Times New Roman"; }div.Section1 { } Let's block ads!

Cancer victim to die on his terms - Parksville Qualicum Beach News

Wednesday, July 5, 2017

You can’t tell me I’m committing suicide,” said Ness, who was born in Victoria and who worked as a logger before starting his own successful real estate business in Campbell River in 1976. “Suicide is for people who are really depressed and just can’t take it any more and want to end it all.“That’s not what this is. I’m damn dying now, and it’s moving very quickly.”The progression of his cancer has given his quest a particular urgency. Under Bill C-14, a patient must apply for the procedure, then be approved under its guidelines by two qualified physicians during a 10-day “period of reflection.” At the end of those 10 days, the patient must again sign a consent before the doctor can perform the procedure.Ness, citing the example of his brother’s deterioration, was concerned the cancer might spread to his brain and leave him unable to comprehend the consent form.“You have to have the capacity to consent and you have to sign a document on the date of the procedure,” said Dr. Tanja Daws of Courtenay Medical Clinic. “The patient can only receive the procedure if they know what it means. They can’t get it if they are in a coma or if they’re confused.”The process itself involves the injection of a sedative that puts the patient into a deep sleep. Then another drug is injected that will stop respiration and the heartbeat.Just two days before his scheduled procedure, Ness appeared outwardly healthy. He is not bed-ridden and is not connected to oxygen or an intravenous drip. The only outward sign of his illness is a persistent cough in the one lung he he was left with after undergoing a pneumonectomy last November.The removal of his left lung initially left him feeling much better, Ness said, and he and Gloria were even planning a “bucket list” trip to Machu Picchu this coming winter.But his cough returned earlier this year, and a CT scan showed the cancer had returned.“The doctors said if the cancer does come back (following surgery), it will come back as stage 4 cancer and it will be extremely aggressive,” Ness said. “That’s where I am now.“You look at me, and people say, ‘Ed, you look so healthy’, but this cancer is raging through my body right now. I can feel it. It feels like there’s something alive inside me and it’s moving really quickly.”In addition to taking charg...
