Wife kills abusive husband in self-defense only to discover 'he' was actually a woman wearing prosthetic penis - Daily MailFriday, September 30, 2016
The whole time you were talking to her, she'd have her hands in her
pockets, playing with herself like she was a guy.'
The couple met while Angela was living at a Glencoe-area farm while recuperating from a back injury and Elizabeth was traveling to farms to sell dog tags. It wasn't long before Angela started beating Elizabeth, who said during the investigation that she genuinely loved her husband.Over seven months, Angela continued to hit Elizabeth, threatening her with guns and violating her with a metal pipe. In the early stages, at the couple's wedding announcement, Elizabeth recalls: 'I had to explain to everyone how I could
be so happy, getting married, when I had a black eye.
Danger lurking: Angelo Heddington (left) and Elizabeth (right) had a whirlwind romance, which was followed by a shotgun wedding after four months of dating, and then escalating domestic violence
'But I knew how to
pull the wool over people's eyes. It was one thing Ang taught me how to
do.'As a result of an investigation, a second-degree murder charge against Elizabeth was dropped when it was determined that she had been acting in self-defense when she killed Angela.
Information from Angela's family
painted a picture of a violent person who left her home near Chatham and
had been pretending to be male since she was 14 years old.Police and medical investigations brought forward overwhelming evidence Angela had a history ofsimilar types of abuse in at least three past relationships, in which she also acted as a man.Angela had both male and female lovers, however, and was apparently controlling and abusive with both. While pretending to be a man, Angela starved a male lover until he lost 99lbs.As Angelo, Angela had threatened to kill Elizabeth's family and
also once beat her so badly that her lung collapsed. Her own weight fell from 200lbs to 130lbs.Angela exercised 'food control'
on Elizabeth, who was whipped with a horse crop, and beaten for 'not
answering questions quickly enough, not cooking supper fast enough, not
sitting upstraight and not acting like a lady,' Crown Attorney Paul Bailey said during the investigation.
Fighting back: But when a battered Elizabeth stabbed Angelo (born Angela), after she had been attacked, it was the paramedics who discovered a prosthetic penis under Angelo's clothes on the way to the hospital
Spiraling lies: Angelo, who continued to hit Elizabeth, had actually told his wife that a previous girlfriend had gotten angry and burned his genitals
The night Angela died, Elizabeth broke free from her abusive grip and and ran toward the door, grabbing a 12-inch butcher knife along the way.She stabbed Angela in the abdomen after being c...
'They lost their goalie': Don Mills Flyers pay tribute to murder victim Roy Pejcinovski in emotional return to the ice - Toronto StarThursday, April 12, 2018
Flyers and Marlboros. (Vince Talotta / Toronto Star)Pejcinovski was a promising prospect in next year’s Ontario Hockey League draft. “We remember him as a teammate and friend,” West said, urging the boys to “sit together, support each other, and keep playing the game.” And they did, but with a twist. The two teams tossed their sticks into pile at centre ice — with no discernible divide between Flyers and Marlboros. Players picked sticks at random, shuffling them like a deck of cards into two new teams.They then peeled their rival jerseys and put on new ones, black or white with a capital “R,” for Roy, in burgundy. The colour in the boys’ socks — orange and black for the Flye...

— City of Brockville (@BrockvilleON) April 9, 2018Organizations across Ontario were paying tribute to the victims of last week’s fatal bus crash.The bus carrying the junior hockey team to a playoff game collided with a semi truck in northeast Saskatchewan on Friday, killing 15 people and leaving 14 others injured.The fatalities included 10 young teammates, ranging in age from 15 to 21, and five team personnel. Like many people across the country, the Wilsons placed a hockey stick on their porch in what has become a universal tribute to the lost players.The book of condolences is the product of city staff’s collaboration with Brockville’s Irvine Funeral Home.The tragedy also hit close to home for Mike Galbraith, a funeral director at Irvine who helped coordinate the book of condolences.“As a hockey dad, as a parent, as a funeral director, I can appreciate the chaos that’s going on,” he said.“Sometimes, people need an outlet.”Signing a book of condolences is a small way of confronting the powerlessness one feels in the wake of such a tragedy, said Galbraith.“This one’s kind of near and dear to the heart,” he added.“If I had the means and the time, I would fly out there today on a plane and help them out.”The Brockville Braves plan on contributing one dollar from every ticket sold to Tuesday’s Game at the Memorial Centre to a crowdsourcing fund for the victims. Galbraith said another version of the book of condolences will be set up at the arena ahead of that game.“It will all be added to one and sent off at the end of the week,” he added.Some 30 people had signed the city hall book as of mid-afternoon Monday, as word of the tribute began slowly to spread.Some of the people signing came from out of town, including Prescott, Mallorytown, Delta and Kingston.All of the local signatures and messages will be conveyed to Humboldt city hall.Elsewhere locally, organizers of the Brockville Winter Classic Weekend used their Facebook account to post tributes to the Broncos and a link to the crowdsourcing page.Brockville Mayor David Henderson said the scope of the tragedy extends beyond the world of hockey.“I think it wa...

By Sunday afternoon, the tally grew to $5,980 from 136 donors. In an update, Chapman thanked donors and said the appeal was finished. “As per request by the family, I will be closing donations and taking the funds to them,” she said. “They decided that this is an overwhelming, but very appreciated amount of support, and that they would like me to close the fund as we have reached nearly $6,000.”Many donors offered their condolences about the trio's death. “My heart goes out to anyone impacted by this tragedy,” said Danielle Heatley. “I can't imagine the pain of losing a child and grandchild,” said MaryClaire Wood in a post. “I pray you find the strength to deal with this terrible loss.“Thanks to everyone for their generosity,” said Jonathan White...
