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 sentencin...

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

Saturday, March 2, 2019

Marnie Frey with daughter BrittneyPhotograph By LYNN FREY, FACEBOOK PAGE This is the second in a series of two articles examining what happened to the remains of some of 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...

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

Saturday, March 2, 2019

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!
