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

Wednesday, March 27, 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...

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

Saturday, March 02, 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!

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

Saturday, March 02, 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...

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...
