General Discussion / Vancouver murder in the late 50's/early 60's ~ HELP?
« on: November 11, 2010, 09:59:39 AM »
I am trying to get information on the following:
Sometime in the late 50's/early 60's, a professional football player named Doug {?} Brown and his wife were having marital problems and were seeing a priest for counseling.
When the wife decided to leave the marriage, Brown blamed the priest for this decision, and went to the church and killed the first priest there who answered the door.
I believe this murder occurred in New Westminster?
Brown was diagnosed as mentally unstable, and sentenced to Riverview {then Essondale}, and an aunt of mine, through marriage, was a hairdresser for the inmates there in the mid-70's, and recalled this story ~ but she has since passed away, and thus I know of no other details.
I'm wondering if anyone 'out there' recalls the details?

Victoria / Victoria Murder...George ?

I recall growing up in Victoria in the 60's/70's, and there was a murder in the mid-60's:
a young fellow was found beaten to death in the old Hudson Bay parking lot. I believe his name was George ??, or ???
Can anyone shed any light on this? And did they ever find the murderer?
