Good for you December;  just what I like to see on here ... someone who takes the time to care and remember an unsolved. 


The animal won't be eligible for parole until he is 102 years old.  What a horrible piece of humanity! 

Police are a horrifying form of brotherhood;  Anybody cop who breaks the code of silence would surely disappear off the face of the earth.  .. and even if he had confessed to, or cleared his conscience to a relative, it's not likely any secret would ever be revealed.

It never ceases to amaze my how logical much of our research and years of observations actually are in this and many cases.  Suffice to say those suppose to be finding out the truth have much disgrace to face (for their incompetence and/or worse) over and over again in the past;  and the system holds all the power to deal or not deal with past mistakes and corrupt acts.  Top this with the fact that those left behind by victims are too old, too tired of fighting for justice, and too worn out with remorse and regret to take their heads out of the sand in many cases.  It is easier to condemn what is brought to light in such severe cases.

 :D  maybe he didn't dig as deep as we did D. .... or where we dug.  Sometimes we don't realize all we scratched up all these years;  as we devote leisurely and willing time to it all ... and also get to compare much more than what the authorities put in files.

good one D ..... great find... did you get the year it was taken?   guess I'll try the link  :-\

- the boy's father was a person with position in town;  this puts the family out in the open, so to speak.
- the family owned an apartment complex;  this also puts the family in an open position.
- seems there would only be two likely scenarios for killing this little boy:
  - the child saw something he shouldn't have. (or)
  - someone rotten enough saw an opportunity to hurt the boy's family? father? relative?
It seems to me that people in a small town always know something but say nothing.  There has to be a reason for taking that little boys life.   >:(

Thinking back to my growing up in a fishing community and being among avid boaters most of my adult life, I have to say that cinder blocks (concrete building blocks) are one of the most common items for anchoring a boat, that I've seen along lakes and waterways.  You could drive to water sources almost anywhere back in those days, and find cinder blocks left behind by people who were fishing previously ... poor man's anchor sort of thing ... convenient for the holes in them to tie rope to. 

Terry Arnold / Re: Terry Arnold.... Likely Serial Killer

too many dirty hands that are still collecting or awaiting "pensions" maybe  ;)  .. not to mention whatever "scared little people" who will always be "little" as long as they are scared!  That is what keeps the silence in tact.

... just throwing this in here ... from a post by wellwell.     
As soon as I read it, I could picture Arnold roaming from a trailer park location the night Joanne went missing;  I still think he could very likely have been the guy in the car who abducted that little girl from the store that rainy night in Chilliwack.  Arnold got away with so much.  He seemed to have extra carte-blanche and untouchable in many areas, due to his ability to mingle with those like him, make a mental list of their crimes, and use it to "walk" every time he killed another girl. imho!
I am wondering if the writer who did the article on Doreena Green, made a mistake about the date? 

I hate to go there wellwell, but gotta say:  that girl has "the look" that Terry Arnold was attracted to.  Although binding with just about anything and disposing in water (weighted down) is a typical practice for that kind of killer who has access to water and doesn't want the body found.   :-\  .... and it seems that her killer could have picked her out through the news articles about her.   :-\ :-\

That is a big subject of conversation here in Sydney, Cape Breton today.  Everybody feels new charges should be put in place;  after all, they did intend for her to die that night.

I pray this angel now watching over us, will protect the many young people who walk in her shoes today. :-X

SYDNEY, N.S. — The lone survivor of the most notorious crime in Cape Breton’s history has died.

Arleen MacNeil, who survived but was left permanently disabled when she was shot in the head during a robbery at the Sydney River McDonald’s, died Wednesday at the Halifax Infirmary.

On May 7, 1992, a botched robbery at the restaurant resulted in the murders of workers James Fagan, 27, Donna Warren, 22, and Neil Burroughs Jr., 29.

The brutality of the crime shook the community and discussion of it often enflames passions to this day, despite the passage of time.

MacNeil was only 20 years old when she was shot, and she lived for many years at a home in Bridgewater for people with acquired brain injuries. In her wheelchair, she attended some of the proceedings when those accused in the killing were on trial.

Derek Wood, 18, an employee of the restaurant, along with Freeman MacNeil, 23, and Darren Muise, 18, broke into the restaurant after closing, planning to rob it. They managed to steal only $2,017.

Now 44, Muise admitted to killing Burroughs, a married father and maintenance worker. He pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and was sentenced to life in prison with no possibility of parole for 20 years. Muise was granted full parole in November 2012. He is now living in lower mainland British Columbia with his girlfriend, living a “stable and financially secure” life, according to his most recent parole board decision.

Wood and MacNeil were convicted of first-degree murder and were able to begin applying for unescorted temporary absences and day parole beginning in 2014 and were eligible to apply for parole last year. In 2015, Wood lost his appeal of the decision to deny him day parole.

MacNeil was the daughter of Howard and Germaine MacNeil.

There will be a funeral mass at St. Joseph’s Church in Bras d’Or Tuesday. Memorial donations can be made to the Brain Injury Association of Nova Scotia, Canadian Cancer Society or a charity of one’s choice.

SYDNEY — Police have used DNA evidence to bring justice to a long-standing cold case.

Raymond (Glenn) Farrow, 51, of Glace Bay will be sentenced in August for the 2006 death of Harold (Buster) Slaunwhite.

Farrow was originally charged with first-degree murder in the Dominion veteran’s death and scheduled for trial later this year.

On Friday, Farrow pleaded guilty to the lesser included offence of manslaughter. The offender, who is now a double amputee, was wheeled into the Sydney justice centre by sheriff’s deputies.

It has been nearly 12 years since Slaunwhite was discovered slumped over next to his bed at his Brook Street home.

Police and paramedics discovered puncture wounds on Slaunwhite’s abdomen and slashes on his neck. What was believed to be a steak knife blade was located under the victim’s body.

“Other than the bedroom, the house appeared to be in order and undisturbed,” an agreed statement of facts reads.

An autopsy later confirmed that Slaunwhite died as a result of multiple injuries.

Slaunwhite’s residence was situated near an area that was a popular hangout for local youths. During the course of their investigation, Cape Breton Regional Police concluded that on the night prior to the discovery of Slaunwhite’s body, there were two house parties in his neighbourhood.

One party was next door to Slaunwhite’s residence and the second party was a few properties away. Police say both parties involved a large number of young people consuming alcohol and drugs, which created “a large pool of persons of interest near the victim’s residence around the time of his murder.”

According to the evidence, Slaunwhite lived alone following the death of his wife. He was known to keep large amounts of money in his home. Prior to his death, he had withdrawn $1,000 in $100 bills from a local bank. For this reason, police canvassed local businesses and inquired if any customers had offered to pay in large bills.

In an attempt to drum up leads, police held a news conference in relation to the senior’s death in July 2007. In the years that followed, very little new information surfaced. The crime left seniors living in the small seaside community feeling uneasy.

An active member of the Dominion legion, Slaunwhite had worked in the coal mines until his retirement. He was the father to six children and a former Second World War medic. He died two months before his 83rd birthday.

In 2014, a task force was set up to investigate Slaunwhite’s death, consisting of regional police and RCMP officers. They interviewed about 300 individuals and collected DNA from approximately 110 people either by cast-off method or by consent. Prior to the task force, DNA had only been collected from about 30 individuals and testing methods were limited.
