Police make arrest in connection with 2002 murder
Jay McQueen

The killer remains on the loose, but, an arrest has been made in connection with a murder dating back nearly a decade.

Ronald Crawford -- who was 42 at the time -- was stabbed to death inside a sub shop on Concession Street in August 2002 after coming to the aid of the owner during a robbery.

Detective Sergeant Matt Kavanagh says the suspect fled in a waiting vehicle and the alleged driver of that vehicle is now in police custody.

40-year-old Jason Fraser of Hamilton has been charged with accessory after the fact to murder and robbery.

He was picked up yesterday afternoon at the City Motor Hotel -- where he's believed to have lived for about a year with his girlfriend, 41-year-old Kim Ruttan.

The two are also facing drug trafficking charges.

Two other men inside the motel room at the time of the arrests have also been charged with possession of cocaine.

Kavanagh wouldn't comment on the murder himself but says he believes someone out there knows something.

The suspect -- at the time of the crime in 2002 -- was white, 25-40 years old, 5'10"-6'0" and about 170 pounds.

The arrests are the result of a review of case files and new information from the public.

 If I can find more background for this crime I will post. If my search wasn't thorough enough and a link already exists for this case please let me know.

Thx Whistle

 Here is the text of the story link from the last post. From Hamilton's 900 CHML site.

Mark Staples ordered to stand trial

A Dundas man has been ordered to stand trial on two counts of first degree murder, more than 14 years after the slayings of his sister and millionaire father.

An Ontario court justice has ruled that there is enough evidence for Mark Staples to go to trial.

67 year old William Staples and 36 year old Rhonda Borelli went missing in January of 1998.  Their decomposing bodies were later found in the bed of the older victim's pick up truck in a parking lot near Pearson International Airport.

The accused, who was the chief beneficiary of his father's estate, was arrested in June of 2010.

His trial is expected to start early next year and it will likely take place over a couple of months.


Here is a link to some more news about this crime. I'm sorry but I can't copy and paste the article from my IPad.

Hello Jesa
Thank you for sharing. We used to visit my aunt and uncle in Oakridge in the late sixties and early seventies. I don't remember the the city that well from those days. I was only 9 when your sister passed.
 More recently we go antiquing in the London and southwest area. We seem to use the Wellington and Highbury tramples a lot so I become a wee bit familiar with them. I've always had a fondness for that area of Ontario.

 I was trying to find some older pictures of the area but, without any luck so far. I did read that there was a towers near by. According to Google Maps it would've been near where a Tony Romas is now. North of the 401.

Timmies was in an odd spot. You had to drive all the way around the back of the closed restaurant to get into their drive thru.
 I wonder what the treasure Island mall was like? The name makes me think of the Woodbine mall in T.O.

  Thanks chickapey.
 That helps with the perspective. The mall that is there now is kind of an odds and sodds place. I believe that Wellington street runs all of the way to or very close to Aylmer? I think that there is a Timmies on the south east side that I will sometimes stop at on the way back home.

 I am pleased to see that Jaqueline lives on the hearts and minds of her family and friends. I was impressed by the walk of rememberence that was taken, photographed and shared with the folks on this board. Well done.
 I am trying to remember my London geography. The Wellington street bridge is further west than the Highbury street bridge. Is Wellington st where the Flying J truck stop is now? And is that where the Treasure Island plaza was located?
