Jenique Dalcourt homicide: Suspect Walks

Family members of Jenique Dalcourt, arrive at a hearing for a suspect in the case at the Longueuil courthouse on Monday, Oct. 27, 2014.

Family members of Jenique Dalcourt, arrive at a hearing for a suspect in the case at the Longueuil courthouse on Monday, Oct. 27, 2014.

What a colossal screw-up by Longueuil lawn enforcement. I can’t say I am surprised. After holding a suspect in connection with the vicious beating death of Jenique Dalcourt for two days, a Crown prosecutor made the stunning announcement on Monday that the man would be released without being charged. Seems LE got a little ahead of themselves, at the appalling expense of the victim’s family.

More from Paul Cherry of The Gazette:

The prosecutor, Sylvie Villeneuve, made the announcement to Quebec Court Judge Ellen Paré after the family of the victim, Jenique Dalcourt spent the entire day at the courthouse, for nothing.

The 26-year-old man, a resident of Longueuil who has no criminal record in Quebec’s provincial court, was arrested Saturday afternoon, four days after Dalcourt, 23, was severely beaten, on Oct. 21, as she walked home from work along the dark section of a bike path in the Vieux Longueuil borough of the South Shore city before 10 p.m. Reportedly, he was one of a few men the Longueuil police questioned as potential witnesses minutes after Dalcourt was found injured by a passerby who called 911. Dalcourt died the following morning.

The Longueuil police spent days at the crime scene and went over the bike path, and an adjacent cemetery, thoroughly in an effort to find evidence among the leaf-covered ground on either side of the path. They also conducted a door-to-door campaign by visiting more than 200 residents in the surrounding area in the hopes of finding witnesses. Their efforts appeared to produce results when the man was arrested on Saturday, but Villeneuve’s surprise announcement on Monday came with a request that the man be released.

“No charge will be laid at this moment,” Villeneuve said with no further explanation to the judge. The Crown made no comment to reporters at the end of the day. A person arrested as a suspect in a crime in Canada can be detained for only a certain amount of time without being charged.

Before agreeing with the request, Paré made sure to point out that the man had been detained at the courthouse all day while the court and the man’s legal aid lawyer, Jean François Lambert, waited for an indictment to be produced by the Crown. Twelve of Dalcourt’s relatives, including her mother, father, stepfather and brother sat in the courtroom for almost the entire day while Paré handled dozens of other cases on Monday.

“This is difficult,” Dalcourt’s stepfather said before Villeneuve made the announcement. He asked that his name not be published. “Every time the door opens (to bring a detained suspect into the prisoner’s dock) we get nervous. We didn’t know what to expect in the courtroom today.”

“(Jenique) was a good girl. She kept to herself — wouldn’t have looked for trouble,” the stepfather said. “She always tried to set a good example for her sisters.”

The victim’s father and her brother, John and Nick Gandolfo, respectively, came to Longueuil from Long Island, New York, after learning that Jenique had been killed. John Gandolfo said that before last week he was looking forward to Christmas because his daughter had made plans to travel to New York for the holiday.

Shortly after 6 p.m. Monday, the suspect walked out of the Longueuil courthouse escorted by several special constables from the courthouse and what appeared to be a few relatives. The man shielded his face with a hood and a piece of paper and had no comment.

The Longueuil police had planned to hold a news conference after the 26-year-old man appeared in court. When that did not happen they instead released a short, written statement.

“Several elements of proof were submitted to the Directeur des poursuites criminelles et pénales (the prosecution), however the results of expert analysis (on some evidence) are still expected. At this stage, the investigation is ongoing,” the statement read. The Longueuil police also said they would continue increased patrols of the bike path.

 


#JianGhomeshi , Toronto, and the 20-Year Smirk

Justin-Trudeau-Clip2

Ghomeshi interviewing Justin Trudeau

Like most Americans I only know Jian Ghomeshi as the guy who replaced Terry Gross and Fresh Air on my local NPR station. Or so I thought…

Let me take you back to Toronto in the early 90s. The city was not lacking for self-absorption and arrogance:  The Barenaked Ladies were busking, The Jays were champs, and Due South was an export.

I was an actor fresh out of drama school. I landed with a pretty good agency whose roster included Sheila McCarthy, Dean Mcdermott, Maury Chakin, Paul Gross, Aidan Devine, Sandra Oh, and Amanda Tapping. There was no lack of swagger among this group.

We were young. We did many foolish things. I witnessed many acts of questionable behavior. One Christmas, I worked a holiday party with Dean Mcdermott (we parked the guests’ cars). I saw Martin Short so blind drunk on the front lawn I thought he’d never stand up. Years later I saw him in a Santa Monica Toys R Us on a Sunday morning. He didn’t appear much better. But somewhere along the way, Martin Short must have changed his behavior. He wouldn’t be alive otherwise.

I was once invited to a #CBC season launch party;  a Friday afternoon debauch at their King street studios that started with booze flowing at noon and went right on through until eight that evening. Eight hours of sodden Canadian actors and “celebrities” blind-drunk out of their minds behaving like the biggest narcissistic douche-bags south of the 401 (myself included).  Don Cherry was there, that’s where I met Mr. Dressup, Ernie Cooms (Somewhere I have a photo of the two of us, I’ll post it if I find it).  Scott Thompson from Kids in the Hall strutted around in a vampire cape, you would have thought he was Norma Desmond.

These days I hear Scott is pretty chill, really mellowed out, and a nice guy.

Moxy Fruvous

Moxy Fruvous

And then there was Jian Ghomeshi. I never knew his name, I just knew him as a member of the band, Moxy Fruvous. They used to hang around my agent’s office.  I don’t know who they were friends with, but they’d usually saunter in the door, grab a Diet-Coke from the mini-fridge in the foyer, and generally strut around the place like they owned it.  Ghomeshi was the worst. He generally acted like it was everyone’s great privilege to be in his company. The stories going around now about him having a narcissistic personality disorder? I don’t know anything about that now, but that was certainly Ghomeshi back then.  I thought the guy was a real arrogant piece of work.

And I say this because the Jian Ghomeshi I know today I bear no ill-will. I didn’t even realize the DJ I’ve been listening to on Q is the same arrogant asshole who crossed my path 20 years ago.  I’ve enjoyed his interviews, especially with Canadian subjects, it makes me a little homesick. He is informative, appears sensitive, has a very appealing radio manner. Hell, maybe it’s Q I just like. Piya Chattopadhyay works just fine for me too.

I believe in the rights of the individual. Pierre Trudeau said it years ago, and I am a big believer in what he said, “there’s no place for the state in the bedrooms of the nation”.  What Jian Ghomeshi does in his bedroom is none of my business.

I also believe in the rights of women. There are now allegations of sexual abuse against Mr. Ghomeshi. His attempt to shrug these off in his Facebook apology as harmless, consensual sex-games displays a lack of sensitivity and self-awareness that is disturbing. Wherever the truth may lead in this matter, what I can confirm is this: the guy who posted that Facebook message that seemed more like boasting of sexual proclivities than a heartfelt explanation? That’s the same egocentric braggart I observed 20 years ago.

 


#JeniqueDalcourt : Longueuil police make arrest in bike path attack

Update: October 27th: Paul Cherry of The Gazette is reporting that the suspect arrested is being relased without charge despite being detained for two days:

tommy-lacroix-longueuil-police

Longueuil police finally get one. Thanks to Guy for pointing this out:

Police have confirmed that a man in his mid-20s was arrested today by the Longueuil police in connection with the killing of 23-year-old Jenique Dalcourt Tuesday night, as first reported by CTV News.

The young woman was walking home after work when she was attacked as she took the popular but dimly lit bike path between Chambly Rd. and Normandy St. in Old Longueuil.

She was discovered by a passerby at 10 p.m. laying in a pool of blood.

The man had originally been met by investigators hours after the murder, but was only placed under arrest Saturday.

The brutality of the murder shocked everyone in the neighbourhood, as the autopsy revealed that Dalcourt was beaten to death with a blunt object.

Last night, a vigil was held for the young woman, attended by family and friends but also by other people who wanted to share their sorrow following the tragedy.

The city has taken steps to make the path safer, swapping the bulbs in several street lights to LED bulbs and removing trees to ensure the path is better lit.

 


Authorities confirm body is U-Va. student #HannahGraham

Law Enforcement should not / and will not rush this. Matthew has already been indicted on the Fairfax County rape:  Take the time and get it right.  

From the Washington Post:

harrington-matthew-graham_606

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — The body found on an abandoned property outside of this college town has been confirmed as the remains of University of Virginia sophomore Hannah Graham, a grim result that came nearly six weeks after the 18-year-old from Fairfax County went missing.

Graham was last seen in the early morning hours of Sept. 13, after she was wandering the Downtown Mall here, about a mile and half from her apartment near U-Va.’s idyllic campus. Police on Sept. 24 arrested Jesse L. Matthew Jr., 32, on charges related to Graham’s disappearance after witnesses identified him as the last person with her.

A graduate of West Potomac High School, Graham was known by friends for her vibrant smile, jovial personality and spontaneous sense of humor. She spent the last night before she went missing socializing with friends from U-Va.’s ski club.

“We are devastated by the loss of our beautiful daughter, Hannah,” her parents, John and Sue Graham, said in a statement Friday after authorities confirmed her death. “Put simply, Hannah lit up our lives, the lives of our family and the lives of her friends and others who knew her. Although we have lost our precious Hannah, the light she radiated can never be extinguished.”

Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D) expressed sympathy for the Graham family.

“Our hearts are broken by today’s news, but that will not diminish our resolve to get justice for Hannah and her family,” McAuliffe said.

Graham, who police say had been drinking, left her apartment at about midnight on Sept. 13 to meet up with friends, but she became disoriented on Charlottesville’s streets. She began walking east and soon became lost, turned around in a neighborhood where she’d only lived since classes began for the fall semester, about two weeks earlier. Realizing she was in the wrong place, she sent text messages to friends asking for someone to meet up with her.

She arrived by chance at the Downtown Mall, where she was seen walking with Matthew, who at one point had his arm around her, according to surveillance videos police have released. She disappeared shortly after 1 a.m., walking away from a downtown restaurant with Matthew, according to witnesses.

Jenna Van Dyck, 20, a senior who was close friends with Graham, said that the sophomore never meant to be in that area that night.

“What’s most frustrating is that she just got lost and crossed paths with a predator,” Van Dyck said.

A widespread search for Graham commenced in the days following, with authorities and volunteers spreading out across all corners of the city and the surrounding counties of Nelson and Albemarle.

Police on Oct. 18 announced that a Chesterfield County sheriff’s deputy had discovered human remains near a run-down house on Old Lynchburg Road, about 12 miles southwest of Charlottesville.

Hannah Graham’s parents issued a statement upon confirmation that remains found on an abandoned property last week are those of their 18-year-old daughter, who went missing Sept. 13. Read the Graham family’s statement.

“Since the discovery along Old Lynchburg Road, officers and detectives have been working around the clock to process the scene and preserve evidence,” Albemarle County police officials said in a statement Friday. “We remain committed to this investigation and will work to ensure that justice is served.”

Graham’s body was found about five miles from a hayfield where the remains of slain Virginia Tech student Morgan Harrington were discovered in 2010, 101 days after she went missing in October 2009. Two people close to the investigation have told The Washington Post that a “forensic link” between the Graham case and the Harrington investigation have been traced to Matthew’s DNA. No charges have been filed in the Harrington case.

Court records show that Matthew once lived at a home about five miles from where Graham’s body was found. Matthew has been charged with abducting Graham with the intent to sexually assault her.

Albemarle County commonwealth’s attorney Denise Lunsford said that she is exploring additional charges against Matthew. In Virginia, if a victim is killed in the course of an abduction, rape or an attempted rape, it can be charged as a capital offense, which can carry the death penalty or a mandatory life sentence upon conviction.

“We are working diligently with local law enforcement on the investigation to ensure that we make the best determination for our community and the Grahams in the pursuit of justice,” Lunsford said.

Matthew is being held without bond and is expected to be moved to Fairfax County soon to face charges related to a violent sexual assault and attempted slaying that occurred in Fairfax City in 2005. He was indicted in that case this week.

James L. Camblos III, a lawyer who is representing Matthew in the Graham case, said that Matthew’s family expressed sorrow for the Graham family.

“On behalf of the Carr family, and speaking for myself as well, the Graham family is in our thoughts and prayers in their time of bereavement,” Camblos said, referring to Matthew’s relatives. “The Carrs also asked me to say that they will continue to pray for the Grahams and the Harringtons throughout this ordeal.”

Graham’s death is casting a pall over the U-Va. campus in Charlottesville, where thousands of students, alumni and community members plan to gather for homecoming festivities this weekend.

“Hannah showed great promise as a student and as a young woman,” U-Va. president Teresa Sullivan said in a statement. “For Hannah’s young life to end so tragically, and for her destiny of promise to be left unfulfilled, is an affront to the sanctity of life and to the natural order of human events. This is a sorrowful day in the life of the University.”

Abraham Axler, 19, who serves as president of the Class of 2017, said that the ordeal has deeply affected the school. He is among a group of students preparing a memorial on campus to honor Graham.

“It’s very scary that something like this could happen in such a serene place,” said Axler, of New York. “Hannah’s disappearance represents a permanent change in consciousness about what it means to be safe in our community. The legacy of Hannah is how Virginia can be the safest campus in the country.”

Axler said that students and those in the community will be able to visit the memorial on Sunday morning. It will feature a chair constructed of skis, an homage to her passion for the winter pastime, covered with flowers.

The Grahams said that their daughter intended to pursue a career in global public health, where she could offer assistance to those in need.

“It is heartbreaking for us that she was robbed so tragically of the opportunity to fulfill her dream,” the Grahams said.

Since Graham went missing almost six weeks ago, the Grahams have lived what they described as “every parent’s worst nightmare.”

“When we started this journey together, we all hoped for a happier ending,” the Grahams said Friday. “Sadly that was not to be.”

The Grahams also noted that several young women remain missing in the greater Charlottesville area, and throughout the country, who deserve the nation’s attention.

“Although the waiting has ended for us, there are other families both in Virginia and beyond who have not been as fortunate in that their loved ones are still missing,” the Grahams said. “Please continue to hold these families in your thoughts and prayers.”

The soldier who was shot in Ottawa Wednesday morning is a reservist serving in Hamilton from the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders of Canada, a source has told CBC News.

Members of the Argylls were standing guard at the National War Memorial in Ottawa this week. “The call came in that one of the soldiers has been heard from and is OK,” the source said. No information has been released about the soldier who was shot, the source said. The soldier’s condition is not known at this time.

Police confirmed the shooting at the National War Memorial, and sealed off the area while the injured soldier was given emergency medical aid. He was later put into an ambulance.

The source asked not to be identified as members from the unit have all been ordered not to speak about the incident.

“They are now all on communication lockdown,” the source said. “They’ve been told to put their phones away and all bases are all locked down.”

Parliament Hill was attacked Wednesday after a man with a rifle shot a soldier standing guard at the memorial in downtown Ottawa before seizing a car and driving to the doors of Parliament Hill’s Centre Block nearby.

MPs and other witnesses reported several shots fired inside Parliament, and a gunman has been confirmed dead inside the building.

Police sources say there is more than one suspect, and shots have been reported at other locations surrounding Parliament Hill as the downtown area remains in police lockdown.

It was not immediately known if there are further injuries, but paramedics have been seen carrying a stretcher into the Chateau Laurier Hotel, just east of Parliament Hill. There were reports of shots fired there as well.

The Argylls are an infantry unit of the Canadian Forces primary reserves within 31 Canadian Brigade Group. It is one of the largest army reserve units in the country with over 250 soldiers.

#DarrenVann : Serial killer suspected as bodies of seven women found in Indiana

This Motel 6 in Hammond, Ind. is where police found one of seven women's bodies the weekend.

This Motel 6 in Hammond, Ind. is where police found one of seven women’s bodies the weekend.

Police investigating the slayings of seven women whose bodies were found over the weekend said Monday it could be the work of a serial killer, and that the suspect has told them his victims might go back 20 years.

Hammond Police Chief John Doughty said at a news conference that the suspect is 43-year-old Darren Vann of nearby Gary, Ind., who was convicted of a sex offence in Texas in 2009. His confession to the slaying of one woman in Indiana led police to the grisly discovery of six other bodies, including three on the same block, authorities said.

He said the Gary slayings appear to have happened recently, though Vann indicated there could be earlier victims. He said police are not actively looking for more bodies and have no indication that any murders have occurred in another state. He said Vann is co-operating with investigators in the hope of making a deal with prosecutors.

“It could go back as far as 20 years, based on some statements we have, but that has yet to be corroborated,” Doughty said.

Charges were expected to be filed later Monday in the death of 19-year-old Afrikka Hardy, whose body was found about 9:30 p.m. Friday at a motel, Doughty said. The Lake County coroner’s office said she was strangled.

Doughty said she was involved in prostitution and had arranged to meet Vann at the motel through a Chicago-area website. Police were called by someone who attempted to reach Hardy and “was provided suspicious text responses that she believed to be from the suspect while he was still inside the motel room.”

The discoveries began after Vann allegedly confessed to killing Hardy, then told investigators where more bodies could be found in abandoned homes in Gary, a deteriorating former steel town about 30 miles southeast of Chicago, police said.

A second body was found Saturday night in an abandoned home in Gary. The coroner said family members identified her as 35-year-old Anith Jones, who had been missing since Oct. 8.

Five other bodies were found on Sunday in various Gary homes, said Doughty, who identified two of the women as Gary residents Teairra Batey, 28, and Christine Williams, 36. Police have not determined the identities of the other three women, including two whose bodies were found on the same block where Jones’s body was found on Saturday.

Police said they took Vann into custody Saturday afternoon after obtaining a search warrant for a home and vehicle in Gary,

Hardy’s mother, Lori Townsend, said police told her that Vann asked that she perform a certain sex act, and “when she said ‘no’ and put up a fight, he snapped and strangled her,” she said, speaking from her home in Colorado. “This man is sick.”

Hardy graduated from high school in late 2013 and planned to go on to college to study music, Townsend said.

“She was full of life. She lit up a room with her smile and her beauty,” she said. “And she had a voice like a songbird.”

Gary, once a thriving steel town that’s known as the birthplace of Michael Jackson, has been struggling for decades. Its population has shrunk and its poverty rate hovers around 40 per cent. Thousands of homes are abandoned, many with weeds choking broken sidewalks — often on the same streets where other homes are tidy and well-kept.

One of the houses where police found a body was overgrown with trees in the front and there was trash strewn in the back of what looked like a falling down garage or shed.

Michael Tarm reported from Chicago. Associated Press writers Tom Davies in Indianapolis and Tammy Webber in Chicago contributed to this report.

From the Washington Post:

CHARLOTTESVILLE — Police on Sunday combed a narrow two-lane back road near an abandoned property in Albemarle County south of here, where searchers on Saturday found human remains thought to be those of missing University of Virginia student Hannah Graham.

Graham, an 18-year-old from Fairfax County, vanished in the early hours of Sept. 13. Jesse L. Matthew Jr., a 32-year-old Charlottesville man with whom Graham was last seen, was arrested and charged in her disappearance, but the young woman’s whereabouts were unknown.

branchThe remote location where the body was found was within three or four miles of the hayfield where the body of another missing college student was found in 2010. Both Graham and the second woman, Morgan Harrington, a 20-year-old Virginia Tech student, disappeared late at night in Charlottesville.
Police on Sunday blocked off a three-mile section of Old Lynchburg Road near where the body was found as investigators scoured the area. For much of its length the road is unmarked and without shoulders, surrounded by woods that are turning amber, gold and crimson, and with houses set back from the pavement, several with white country fences. A tiny brick church sits at one end of the barricaded stretch, across the road from a cemetery with several dozen weathered tombstones.

The northernmost police barricade on Old Lynchburg on Sunday was at its intersection with Red Hill Road. From that point, Red Hill winds a little more than three miles to the northwest before it borders the 742-acre Anchorage Farm. It was there that Harrington’s skeletal remains were found.
The grim discovery Saturday of human remains on a stretch of road in rual Virginia has put Charlottesville residents on edge. Officials have not determined the identity of the remains. 
Virginia State Police investigators said last month that the arrest of Matthew was a “significant break” in the Harrington case and provided an unspecified “new forensic link” in the quest for her killer.

The remains found Saturday were discovered by a sheriff’s deputy searching an abandoned property, Charlottesville Police Chief Timothy Longo Sr. said. A conclusive identification has not been made and the remains were sent to the Virginia medical examiner’s office for forensic testing.

Longo said Graham’s family members had been notified. They have not commented on the discovery of the remains. Authorities also called off a search for Graham planned for Sunday, saying they would focus on identifying the body.

Graham’s disappearance has shaken Virginia’s flagship public university, where students have held candlelight vigils and worn orange ribbons in the hope of Graham’s return.

Student council president Jalen Ross helped organize a vigil on the U-Va. campus that attracted hundreds of students. Ross and others at the event, which occurred five days after Graham was last seen, spoke about the missing sophomore in the present tense. Now Ross said that the student council was planning a memorial for Graham to provide a central place on campus for students to honor her.​

“Nobody wanted to hear there’s been a body found,” Ross, 21, said Sunday.

But it was the news many students were expecting, Ross said. In the five weeks since Graham disappeared, a dark mood has again descended over the school.

Hannah Graham timeline
“It revives the whole pool of sadness everyone went through originally,” Ross said.

Many students have donned orange ribbons to keep Graham in mind. Every day since Graham vanished, Ross has worn one pinned to his shirt.

“I told myself  I’d wear it until they found her,” Ross said.

Ross said many students recalled that it took investigators 101 days to find Harrington.

“A lot of us were worried that it would take a long time or infinite time to get closure” in Graham’s case, Ross said.

On Sunday afternoon, the Rev. Heather Warren crafted the words for her evening sermon at St. Paul’s Memorial Church, across from the Charlottesville campus.

“It’s just profoundly sad,” Warren said. “There was always this hope that she might be found alive. That’s not there now.”

In the weeks after Graham vanished, the church kept its doors open for students distressed by the sophomore’s disappearance. Warren said the church has helped students find solace in prayer and passages of Scripture. In recent days, Warren said, she has been drawn to Psalm 139, which explores the constant presence of God even in the worst of times.

“Whither can I go from your presence?” Warren said Sunday, quoting the psalm’s first verses. “You might not know what that presence feels like. But that does not mean you are abandoned.” She began Sunday evening’s service with a moment of silence for Graham.

Friends and teachers have described Graham, a 2013 graduate of West Potomac High School in the Alexandria area of Fairfax, as a good student with a sense of humor.

At U-Va., Graham participated in an alternative spring break as a freshman, volunteering to spend long hours rebuilding homes destroyed by tornadoes in Tuscaloosa, Ala. She was known as a central figure in the college’s ski club.

The investigation into Graham’s disappearance has produced leads in other unsolved cases.

Matthew, who had worked as an orderly at the U-Va. hospital, has been linked by DNA evidence to the investigations of two violent crimes: a sexual assault in Fairfax City in 2005 and the abduction and slaying of Harrington, police have said.

He has not been charged in either case.

In addition, two Virginia universities that Matthew attended between 2002 and 2003 said he was implicated in sexual assault cases. Both women declined to press charges against Matthew, and he was not convicted of any crime connected to the allegations.

Graham spent the evening of Sept. 12, a Friday, drinking and socializing with friends near campus before going out about midnight. By 1 a.m., she was seen wandering the Downtown Mall, about a mile and a half from her apartment. She sent messages to friends indicating that she was lost.

Shortly after 1 a.m., witnesses saw Graham with Matthew near the Tempo restaurant.

Brice Cunningham, the owner of Tempo, told The Washington Post that his employees later saw Graham and Matthew leaving the area together. She had not been seen since.

Police quickly focused on Matthew, searching his car and his Charlottesville apartment and eventually seeking a warrant for his arrest. Matthew was arrested Sept. 24 on a beach near Galveston, Tex., more than 1,300 miles from his apartment.

Matthew was charged with abduction with intent to defile, indicating that police think he planned to sexually assault Graham.

He is being held without bond in the Albemarle-Charlottesville Regional Jail.

James L. Camblos III, the lawyer representing Matthew, said he would await further information.

“The police have located human remains, and we will wait to see what the medical examiner says to see who it is,” Camblos said.
