A couple of weeks after her murder there was a violent robbery in the house right next to the building where AT was murdered, police are not saying if there was a connection

The article says it was third slaying of an elderly woman but does not say they were all unsolved.

There was an arrest for the Crediton murder, I have not been able find any follow up as to whether there was a conviction .  I have attached clipping from the Ottawa Journal from Dec 1 1970

Also there apparently was a tv show documentary produced about Irene Gibbons, the clipping is from the ottawa tv guide in Dec 1978
(Code 10-78
Global Television Network
Broadcast Run:
1976 to 1978
Broadcast Medium:
Code 10-78 was a half-hour Global crime series that ran from 1976 to 1978, and dealt with unsolved OPP cases.  The series was hosted and written by Peter Guy Silverman, and directed by Milad Bessada, with cameraman Don McMillan. The OPP liaison was Const. Rick Morrison.)


Christian Magee was active in Strathroy at the same time although his targets were teenage girls, and the MO was very different but in a small town like that he must have been looked at for this murder too.

From the description in George Fayne's post it seems very likely that the murderer was in the in the house when the grocery boy knocked and that might have panicked the attacker and maybe why there was no sign of a sexual assault.

The police have released new sketches of the man suspected.  The sketches are based upon the DNA taken from the broken tooth reported last year, the faces in the sketches are not exact but use markers in the DNA to predict features, colour etc, there is one of what the suspect is predicted to look like 1971 and another as he might look today

Make of this what ever?????
My mother had my son attend Central Baptist private school & Ruth Fryer often drove him one way or the other for my mother. Ruth Fryer was a constant guest of my mother, at my home before she passed away.
When my brother, his wife & I were at my mothers deathbed in the hospital....Ruth Fryer was already present & stayed until my mother drew her last breath.
No need to ask.....I was offended & shocked but made no fuss due to the circumstances.
My brother says Ruth was at the wake at my home, but I don't remember.
I never saw the woman again until her invitation to their 50th wedding anniversary.
Ruth & Glen Fryer had NO relationship with any point & never will.
I choose my own friends.

Also....I never got the impression that my mother particularly liked Ruth or Glen....not sure what my mom was doing???

Since GF was a teacher in the GTA during the 70's does this mean that Ruth stayed in London for some period, ie were they separated and then reconciled?

Bucky I am very sure that the young man on the porch is not GF and the house on dundas you mention is likely Buchan House.

I have wondered about this too Declan, given Clarke getting out of dodge after the murder.

One other scenario is might that we don't really know when JD left that night except based on Clarke's word.  It seems possible that reports of seeing her at the bus stop are not trustworthy.  Could something  have happened in the store and Joe made up the story of her leaving work, is there a report of a person other than Joe seeing her at work and when.

It is possible that she got in habit of using the beaconsfield bus stop to lessen the chance of running into some of the creepier clientele of the Stanley Variety.

I think the claim in Murder City of the witnesses to JD being at the bus stop is at least partly based on information from this site , see reply #179 in this thread, from that post it sounds like it took someone a while to talk JD into the the car.

Gypsygirl, my understanding was that GF was employed as principal at the CPRI which was next door to the Katherine Harley school for the mentally retarded, I'm not sure if they were officially connected. 

The London District Association for the Mentally Retarded is the precursor to  Community Living London which I believe is a community based organization not a government organization, i.e. I don't think it would have owned or directly run school, although it certainly would have had connections to it.  The connection is interesting though.

 It seems that more than one tragic event happened at the property in thorndale,2141294&hl=en

I agree that absence of DNA is not proof of innocence though it makes proof of guilt much more difficult at this point, the fact that some of the cases seem likely to  have had 2 people involved in the abduction it may be possible that one person performed the acts  that would leave DNA and other may have just liked to watch.
