Let Me Take You Down

Not that 4 generations of puke-inducing vegetarian recipes aren’t scintillating reportage (what I wouldn’t do for a sandwich), but there are some justice items of note to report:

1. Good news: a 1979 cold case is solved in Longueuil, Quebec.

2. Bad news: the headline reads as follows: Longueuil police crack cold case . “A-hem”… police did nothing of the sort. If it were not for the tip of a concerned citizen Diane Verret’s murder would still be as cold as a stone. It took police 29-years to get up off their asses and finally re-interview witnesses. Way to be thorough boys. Keep up the slack work.

3. Bad news: 33-years-ago today Sharron Prior disappeared from Point Saint Charles, and turned up dead in Longueuil. Still no justice. (though Longueuil police might want to take a hint from the story above).

4. Bad news: 30-years ago this week Manon Dube was found dead in stream near Magog, Quebec. Still no justice, though Manon’s sister, Chantel is still on the case (read here). Whether the police are managing to still pay attention is anyone’s guess.

5. Good news: Bill Wildman just taped a segment for Todd Matthews’ Missing Pieces on the disappearance of Deborah Key. (thanks to “you know who” for doing the transcript).

6. Bad news: (are you sensing the pattern here?) Deborah has been missing for 10+ years.

7. Good News: Doreen Drummond started a blog!

Doreen is the mother of Kelly-Anne Drummond, a star athlete and scholar whose life was cut short in 2004. Doreen is “lucky” in that Kelly-Anne’s offender was caught and is serving a sentence of 13 years…

13 years for what I will only say was a brutal murder. Doreen is “lucky” in that the processing of this offender is now over; Doreen’s price? Eternal vigilance. She can look forward to showing up at parole hearings 13-years hence and arguing that this awful human being shouldn’t be let out (if she can muster the zeal, I can tell you I wouldn’t be up to it).

KellyAnne and Doreen – nice photo

I digress. Doreen’s blog isn’t about that. Check it out for a celebration of Kelly-Anne’s life.
