Some more Good news..

This is a story that has grabbed our attention

"Throughout the ordeal, I needed to stay with my family. It was an enormous stress. I needed to follow the trial. I wanted closure," Ms. Janelle-Gervais said.

Mr. Boisvenu won a major victory yesterday when the Quebec government tabled a bill that requires employers to grant a leave of absence of up to two years to employees whose child or spouse is slain. Employees or their children who suffer serious bodily injury as a result of a crime will also have the right to a two-year leave of absence.

Story behind the Story

While reading up on some cases on the internet I came across this one.

No secret files -- just taking dozens of calls from victim's families; following up any lead; and sometimes sitting quietly with a grieving mom. Cold cases get solved because officers still care.

It is Her!

It is Her!

by: Doreen Linda Prior

She helps me to remember
and begs me to forget
she's the star in the sky
that winks me goodnight

It's time to rest
and lets me not fear
she whispers I Love You
I feel her so near

she touches my shoulder
I know she is saying
"One Day at a Time"
continue praying

just follow your heart
and continue to sing
live life to the fullest
And accept what it brings

Take time to sit back
and enjoy the sun
re-group..and think
Gods will will be done

Conscience...

I think we all have a little voice inside us that will guide us. It may be God, I don't know. But I think that if we shut out all the noise and clutter from our lives and listen to that voice, it will tell us the right thing to do.

Place where Sharron was found




We took the photo of the place where sharron was found 32 years ago. Longueuil Quebec.


We just have to say that of course there were no buildings around no cars ,Just bush, trees forest...and then the Apairy. If you look at the bottom of the photo and go about 75 ft. in....that is where her body was found... But a gate with lock had to be opened, the gate would have been situated not too far from the road.

Sharron's Dog Sandy!..


We were going through some photos recently and came across this photo of Sharron's Dog "Sandy".Sharron posed her at the organ....and laughed so hard.

Sandy was our family dog..but Sharron took her and cared for her the most! Sharron and her girlfriends would dress Sandy up in baby clothes and take her for walks.... Sandy loved it!

Thursday, September 06, 2007

Some very moving words...

Our family had a private email sent to Sharron's site. It was a gentleman who is a manager of a Website www.debbiekey.org His friend was murdered Deborah Leigh Key. This gentleman Got me thinking how hard it is to say "I'm sorry about the loss of your sister.... daughter....or even if it is right to say anything at all.... I never want Sharron to be forgotton..Seems the years go by and she is forgotten about a little more each year. Her friends still get together I'm sure..and even maybe remember her...these memories are special memories. But memories that I would love to hear. Maybe Sharron's friends do not know how to start a conversation with her Family..afraid of what we will think! Afraid of saying something that would offend us...
I think some days..I would like to hear special moments that Sharron's friends had. Special silly things that they did together...Places that they hung out..country places....swimming holes.
I know that Sharron had many special friends but it's a shame that we do not hear from them.

Cedrika Provencher missing

Search continues for missing girl
The GazettePublished:

The search for a missing 9-year-old girl in Trois Rivieres resumed in full force this morning.
Cedrika Provencher went missing Tuesday evening. Yesterday, searchers found her bicycle behind a dumpster in the back of an apartment building more than a kilometre from where she was last seen.
Cedrika was last seen about 8 p.m. by two of her neighbours. Before she disappeared, she had been looking for a small black dog, police said.
The investigation has so far revealed the girl herself did not leave the bicycle behind the dumpster, Constable Michel Letarte said. Rather, it was placed there by a group of teens who found the bike abandoned on the street near where the girl was last seen about 8:30 Tuesday.
About 50 police officers with the Trois Rivieres municipal police, the Surete du Quebec and the RCMP, as well as nearly 200 volunteers are taking part in the search today. A canine unit and helicopter have also assisted in the effort.

Searchers keeping their eyes open for a red bicycle helmet, a black and pink watch, a Star Academie lanyard and a ladybug necklace the girl was wearing when she was last seen.

Police are also checking whether there are any registered sex offendors in the area.
Anyone with information is asked to call Trois Rivieres police immediately at: 819-691-2929.

Sex Offenders To Wear Monitors!!

Nevada’s most serious sex offenders will soon have to wear an ankle bracelet that monitors their whereabouts at all times.
Gov.
Jim Gibbons signed the bill on Tuesday, though it does not take effect until Oct. 1. Officials are touting the measure as a much-needed boost to overburdened law enforcers, who presently consist of only 15 officers who regularly monitor an estimated 750 tier three sex offenders. Under the state’s category system, tier three sex offenders are considered the worst and most likely to reoffend

“It’s impossible for us to monitor our subjects 24 hours a day, 7 days a week,” said Lt. Adam Page of the Nevada Department of Public Safety. “This will not tell us what a person is doing 24 hours a day, but it will tell us where they have been 24 hours a day.”
Convicted sex offenders who try to remove the bracelet will be greeted with an obnoxious alarm. Sex offenders can be fitted with the bracelets for a period of several years or even for the rest of their lives, officials said. Under the new law, playgrounds will be officially off-limits for such sex offenders. Tier-three offenders cannot live within 1,000 of a playground, school or community center.
Offenders will be asked to foot the bill for the bracelets, but if they are unable to afford it, taxpayers will bear the expense.

NEWS! isnt this just like Quebec

Quebec Prisoners Get A Gift

Some Quebec prisoners are set to get an extra gift as of today. La Presse reports a new rule comes into effect today allowing prisoners, even those denied parole, to get out of jail to visit their families. And it seems the Quebec Parole Board is still trying to figure out exactly how to apply the new rule. It has to be immediate family but it isn't clear whether the inmates are accompanied and handcuffed or whether they're completely free. Some victims rights groups say it's ridiculous, arguing that a prisoner too dangerous for parole should be too dangerous to be let out on a family visit.

victims right groups will be on this real soon!!!

BEWARE!...SEX OFFENDER

Bégin was sentenced to 11 years in prison after he attacked a 16-year-old girl at a Beauce hotel in 1994. He kidnapped her at knifepoint and locked her in the trunk of his car before he sexually assaulted her, punched her in the face and tried to strangle her.

Notes from Bégin's parole hearing in January 2007 concluded that he showed no remorse for his crime, failed to complete treatment and was a high risk to reoffend.



Prosecutors said they are concerned Bégin could reoffend...That's an understatement

something that was lost...

We are sitting at lunch one day when my daughter casually mentions that her and her husband are thinking of 'starting a family.''We're taking a survey,' she says half-joking... 'Do you think I should have a baby?

''It will change your life," I say, carefully keeping my tone neutral.

"I know,' she says, 'no more sleeping in on weekends, no more spontaneous vacations.'

But that is not what I meant at all. I look at my daughter, trying to decide what to tell her. I want her to know what she will never learn in childbirth classes. I want to tell her that the physical wounds of child bearing will heal, but becoming a mother will leave her with an emotional wound so raw that she will forever be vulnerable?

I consider warning her that she will never again read a newspaper without asking, 'What if that had been MY child?' That every plane crash, every house fire will haunt her. That when she sees pictures of starving children, she will wonder if anything could be worse than watching your child die. I look at her carefully manicured nails and stylish suit and think that no matter how sophisticated she is, becoming a mother will reduce her to the primitive level of a bear protecting her cub. That an urgent call of 'Mom!' will cause her to drop a soufflé or her best crystal without a moment's hesitation.

I feel that I should warn her that no matter how many years she has invested in her career, she will be professionally derailed by motherhood. She might arrange for child-care, but one day she will be going into an important business meeting and she will think of her baby's sweet smell. She will have to use every ounce discipline to keep from running home, just to make sure her baby is all right.

I want my daughter to know that every day decisions will no longer be routine. That a five year old boy's desire to go to the men's room rather than the women's at McDonald's will become a major dilemma. That right there, in the midst of clattering trays and screaming children, issues of independence and gender identity will be weighed against the prospect that a child molester may be lurking in that rest-room. However decisive she may be at the office, she will second-guess herself constantly as a mother.

Looking at my attractive daughter, I want to assure her that eventually she will shed the pounds of pregnancy, but she will never feel the same about herself. That her life, now so important, will be of less value to her once she has a child. That she would give herself up in a moment to save her offspring, but will also begin to hope for more years, not to accomplish her own dreams, but to watch her child accomplish theirs.

I want her to know that a Cesarean scar or shiny stretch marks will become badges of honor. My daughter's relationship with her husband will change, and not in the way she thinks. I wish she could understand how much more you can love a man who is careful to powder the baby or who never hesitates to play with his child. I think she should know that she will fall in love with him again for reasons she would now find very unromantic.

I wish my daughter could sense the bond she will feel with women throughout history who have tried to stop war, prejudice and drunk driving. I want to describe to my daughter the exhilaration of seeing your child learn to ride a bike. I want to capture for her the belly laugh of a baby who is touching the soft fur of a dog or cat for the first time. I want her to taste the joy that is so real it actually hurts.

My daughter's quizzical look makes me realize that tears have formed in my eyes.

'You'll never regret it,' I finally say. Then I reached across the table, squeezed my daughter's hand and offered a silent prayer for her, and for me, and for all the mere mortal women who stumble their way into this most wonderful of callings

Sharron had a doll in her bedroom, for show, a special doll.

After Sharron died that doll like most of Sharron's belongings stayed in her room untouched.


That doll now sits on my daughter's dresser...my daughter asks often about her auntie Sharron..what she was like? If Sharron was like her..looked like her. What she liked to do? I'm proud to sit with my daughter and laugh and smile and tell her all about Sharron and her smile.


That doll Sharron's friends would remember.

Jane Doe rapist free soon...


Jane Doe rapist free soon
After 20-year sentence attacker still violent, experts say


Serial rapist Paul Douglas Callow will be freed from prison in two weeks. (WONDERFUL!)


And there's not much anyone can do about it.


Callow, who became known as the Balcony Rapist during a serial rape spree in Toronto in the mid-1980s, will have completed a 20-year prison sentence Feb. 25 and will be freed in British Columbia.
It's believed Callow will live in the Vancouver area, where his family lives.
Callow had already sexually attacked two women in the 1970s before he raped five women at knifepoint during the Toronto attacks.
After stalking his victims, Callow climbed onto their second- or third-storey balconies and entered through broken windows or doors.
He then raped his victims for up to 90 minutes.


Callow, who came to Toronto from Vancouver in 1981 and then married and had a little girl, once told a psychiatrist that he was responsible for 26 rapes.
His string of rapes -- in the Wellesely and Sherbourne area -- included the brutalization of a woman who became known as Jane Doe.
Jane Doe launched a $1.2-million lawsuit against Toronto Police in which she alleged they were negligent for not warning women about the Balcony Rapist's attacks.
She was later awarded $220,000 by a judge who agreed she had been used as "bait."
Trial Judge John Kerr noted when he passed sentence that if any of the victims had resisted Callow "we might be sitting here on a charge of murder".
A National Parole Board (NPB) panel agreed with Justice Kerr in 2000 when they ordered Callow to stay in prison for the full 20-year duration of his sentence.
At the most recent NPB review of Callow's detention Jan. 15, it was noted that he was involved in the prison drug subculture.
Drug paraphernalia were found in his possession Dec. 27, the NPB said in parole documents obtained by the Toronto Sun, and he "admitted to getting high on three separate occasions."
Tests show that Callow poses a high risk to reoffend sexually, or with violence.
The NPB noted that Callow had difficulties "controlling inappropriate behaviour" and in one case attempted to rape a nurse who worked at a treatment program.
Steve Sullivan, executive director of the Ottawa-based Resource Centre for the Victims of Crime, said Callow's case "is another example of the problem we have in our system."
"He was too dangerous to release on parole; he was too dangerous to give five statutory release," Sullivan said.
But now that Callow's sentence is complete, the prison doors are swinging open.
"Now we have to sit

SHARRON'S BIRTHDAY TODAY FEBRUARY 9TH


SHARRON'S BIRTHDATE FEB,9TH 1959

Tid--bits from Sharron's diary:

Feb 4th ,1975. "My Mother told me that on Sat----I can have all my girl friends over --sort of like a birthday pajama party, she ask me if i wanted a party, but I said no."

(Moms notes) I called her girl friends anyway----she did not know that the boys would be coming over.

(Sharrons diary)

"FEB,8th evening we all met at J&A(Mareinas) and came over to my house 9:00 p.m. Brenda, Suzy, Debbie, Mary, Marianne, Donna & Judy. At about 11pm there was a knock at the door and in came the guys, John, Weippert, Wilding, Eddy, Tommy & Robert. I was shocked. Everything turned out good though. The guys left at 3:30 am and us girls only went to sleep at 6:30 am. It was a lot of fun. My Mother brought in my birthday cake & the girls all sang happy birthday to me."

Feb 9th 1975 Sunday. "I'm 16 now (continued from party) My mom got along with everyone. They played and sang Sweet Sixteen & put mine and John's name into it. I was so embarrassed & John was really Embarrassed. I think my Mothers' so good to me".

(Mrs. prior-----Every once in a while I read Sharron's diary, she had her ups & downs like all teenagers do, something's in her diary make me smile -----and other things make me feel sad. When she wrote this in her diary she did not know that this was her last birthday, and she only had 49 more days to live. ...We miss you Sharron.

PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION....COLD CASES


Justice Reform
This document is addressed to the Quebec Premiere, the Quebec Minister of Justice and the Quebec Minister for Public Security from victims of crime, surviving family members of murder victims, and supporters for justice reform in the province of Quebec. The complaints to which this document refers concern the 3 unsolved murders that took place in the Sherbrooke area between 1977 and 1978, and close to 20 documented cases of sexual attacks that also occurred in that region from 1977 through 1982. The complaint is against the Surete du Quebec and their investigations into these events from 2002 until the present.
We the undersigned call upon the Quebec government to take the following actions:
1. Commence a full inquiry into the actions of the Surete du Quebec and their negligence in attempting to solve these crimes, to ensure the public that these errors are never repeated, and may never be suffered by any citizen of Quebec again.
2. Reform the system of communication currently used by the Surete du Quebec. To protect the public interest, ensure citizens that information coming into police is captured and acted upon, and that information provided to victims and families of victims is initiated by police, and provided in a seamless and timely fashion. As well, ensure there is a timely and efficient method of communication employed by all police agencies in Quebec to communicate with each other.
3. Provide the Surete du Quebec with sufficient funding to allow them to dedicate resources to cold-cases; specifically we ask that a cold-case bureau be established in the Surete du Quebec, and we ask the Minister of Public Security to form a task force of special investigators for all unsolved murders in the province of Quebec.
We ask for your assistance in these matters with the greatest respect for the work you perform and the service you provide to the people of Quebec.

CRIME STOPPERS WANTS TO STACK THE DECK AGAINST MURDERES

Florida inmates may want to perfect their poker face.One day, they could be playing cards in prison and come across the faces of their own murder victims.That's the idea behind a series of "cold case" card decks spreading throughout Florida jails and prisons, where investigators hope inmates will see a familiar crime story and squeal on their fellow prisoners.Thousands of the decks have been handed out in jails in Southwest Florida, including in Charlotte County. And more are in the works for jails in Manatee, Miami-Dade and other counties. A statewide deck is set to hit prisons across Florida this spring.Each card in the decks features an unsolved murder or disappearance and shows the victim's picture with a description of the crime."Who knows more about who commits crimes than the criminals?" asked Jack Sullivan, president of the Florida Association of Crime Stoppers.No one expects the cards to spawn a wave of arrests. But they have already helped solve one case.And at about $1.60 per pack, crime fighters figure that alone justifies the cost."If it leads to a resolution in one case, it's completely worth it," said Trish Routte, spokeswoman for Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers.Tommy Ray, a special agent for the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, proposed Florida's first cold case deck after seeing fugitive cards similar to those used to track down terrorists in Iraq.About two years ago, Ray convinced Crime Stoppers to make a deck of Polk County's unsolved homicides.Within two months, an inmate offered up a tip that led to two men being charged for the 2004 murder of Thomas Wayne Grammar.In the past seven months, tips attributed to cold case cards have provided Polk County investigators with information in at least 10 unsolved homicides, Ray said.Decks used in county jails contain cases from that area. The Southwest Florida deck features about a dozen Charlotte County and North Port cases, including the 2001 murder of Victoria Arena, who flashes an open-mouthed grin from the four of spades.Victoria's mother, Marion Kovacs, 64, said inmates with information might turn someone in because they're forced to look at victims' faces again and again."It's a good idea," Kovacs said.Melanie Bonjour said she had a "bipolar reaction" when she learned that images of her parents, Paul and Rita Stasny, would be plastered to jailhouse game pieces.The Stasnys, ages 71 and 69, were shot to death in their Port Charlotte home in 1991.Bonjour, who collects every news article about her parents' deaths, decided she could not stand to have the cards in her house."It was a hit in the chest because it's your parents' faces on those cards," Bonjour said. "It's not a game. I don't want them remembered like that. But again, I don't want them forgotten either."Unlike regular decks, which they must buy, inmates can use the cold case cards for free. The decks are paid for by fees charged to criminals when they are sentenced.For their part, several Charlotte County jail inmates were skeptical that the cards would keep the victims on inmates' minds."I don't think the guys focus on the crimes," said Keith Willis, an inmate convicted of burglaries. "They just play with the cards."But Ray argues that not every inmate is a hardened criminal.Inmates have told him: "'We're not going to turn someone in for theft or dealing drugs. But murder, that's a different story,'" Ray said.Gregory Daniels, in Charlotte's jail on two robbery charges, said he was moved by at least one card."This is something that breaks my heart -- a little kid," he said as he examined a card showing 4-year-old Pilar Rodriguez. "A lot of people need to be off the streets."

Pierre-Hugues Boisvenu

QUEBEC ACTIVIST NAMED “HERO OF THE YEAR”


Pierre-Hugues Boisvenu’s 27-year-old daughter, Julie, was raped and murdered in Sherbrooke in 2002. In 2005, his youngest daughter Isabelle was killed in a car accident. Rather than let these tragedies destroy him, Boisvenu has used the experience to become a successful advocate for the families of murder victims. As a result of his tireless work, Boisvenu was nominated by 235,000 readers of Sélection magazine, the french version of Reader’s Digest Canada, and was designated “Hero of 2006.”
Boisvenu is responsible for founding L’Association des Familles de Personnes Assassinées ou Disparues (AFPAD), a non-profit organization that advocates for and provides support to families of missing or murdered children. AFPAD has lobbied the Quebec government regarding the treatment of victims, and has successfully brought about changes, such as the increase in aid for victims’ families from $600 to $3,000.
Boisvenu retired in order to devote more time to AFPAD. The Sherbrooke-based association has recently opened an office in Montreal, and continues to operate based on donations and fundraising.
"It’s wonderful news for me and the families involved with the Association," Boisvenu said. Last year he was given the Prix de la Justice du Quebec.

When our mortal eyes close on this world for the last time, our angels open our spiritual eyes and escort us personally before the face of God
