"A Viable Suspect: The Story of Multiple Murders and How a Police Force's Reach Proved Too Short for Canada's Most Notorious Cold Case"  by Barry Ruhl refers to the case of Irene Gibbons and to others though out Ontario.    I attended one of the author's presentations and certainly many facts support his theory.  But since the suspect is now deceased, it is unlikely to be proven - unless there is DNA that could be used like in the case of the Golden State Killer.

As far as Noudga with her criminal record, how did she get back to Poland and other places like the Honduras?
 According to news reports, Noudga is studying medicine to be a doctor !  The Hippocratic oath vs her vow of love her "serial killer".

It is not likely that the young deaf man ever attended the Kathryn Harly School because most profoundly deaf students in London area at that time would have been at the Ontario School for the Deaf in Milton or possibly if he was hard of hearing, the class at the Lorne Avenue School.  Students were taught to lip read and to speak but because it is more difficult for deaf people to communicate orally, it would not be that unusual for an older boy to hang out with younger kids.  I used to work at Milton in those years, so maybe I knew him.

In his book, "A Viable Suspect" ,  Barry Ruhl wrote about a travelling salesman who lived in the Oakridge area at the time of these murders.  The book reveals a lot of facts that point towards that suspect.  I attended a presentation by Barry Ruhl about his book and he also answered questions.  Quite convincing.

The presentation by Barry Ruhl regarding "A Viable Suspect" was very interesting and informative.  The book is a good read.   "Uncharged is not necessarily unsolved"  is a very apt sayiing for to this suspect.  I would recommend attending presentations by Barry Ruhl also.

 A Viable Suspect by Barry Ruhl, which I borrowed from our library,has some very interesting material.  The focus is on other cases but there are a few references to Jackie's.  I plan to attend the book talk on Sept 24th and if anyone has suggestions for questions for the author , please P.M. me or list them online.

The seminar by Michael Arntfield last night was excellent.  If he has a presentation near you, it is worthwhile to attend.

The author of A Viable Suspect will make a presentation at the  Library in Alvinston on Thursday Sept 24th at 2:00 pm.
I live in the Alvinston -Glencoe area so I plan to attend. 
If people check, the author will probably be presenting in other locations also. 
Mike Arnsfeld is also making a presentation in the Strathroy Senior Citizens Building on Friday Aug. 28th at 6:30 pm.

When I searched to see if trial transcripts are available, the Ministry of the Attorney General website came up -

I copied this from the site ------
" On June 9, 2014, the Ministry of the Attorney General implemented a new model for producing court transcripts.

Where access is not restricted by a statutory provision, common law rule or court order, transcripts of in-court proceedings are available upon request and upon payment of a regulated fee (Ontario Regulation 94/14 Fees for Court Transcripts).

All parties interested in ordering a court transcript must select and contact an independent, authorized court transcriptionist from the List of Authorized Court Transcriptionists for Ontario and arrange for all aspects of the transcript order, including timeframe required, payment method and delivery options. The authorized court transcriptionist will advise whether there are any access restrictions on the transcript order you would like to place.
The List of Authorized Court Transcriptionists for Ontario is administered and maintained by an independent service provider, Arkley Professional Services, and is available online at:

But I did not see any information on what kind of transcripts are available.  There is also an email address to send questions to.

Occasionally, not often though, feed corn is not harvested until winter freeze-up or even as late as the next spring.

Is the building a private house or could it be a public building ?  Sometimes public buildings have lions as decoration or guardians.

I don't know much about boats and the pier.  so then what ports would have had a large pier and structure behind him ?  Port Stanley maybe?  I have only visited Grand Bend Sarnia or Port Stanley harbours in recent years so that time period is unfamiliar.  Would anyone else be familiar with different ports and harbours ?

After looking at the photo again of the unknown young man, I wondered if anyone can tell where it was taken .  The location might give some clues.  Someone somewhere will know who he is -the question is how to make the connection. 
The only public information about Elaine Crocker/B... is on a voters' list -it only gives the address from the '60s.
If she remarried then it is difficult to find information.
