Anything is possible, even sometimes the unthinkable. Look at what happened in Calgary recently ... the mass murder. Who would have thought that someone with everything going for him, bright fututre and well rounded person ... would do something as he did. Spring is a troublesome time of year for many people.

GREAT find Elsie!

This line was a scary one....
"If the accused denies the abuse happened, the charge is dropped unless another witness can corroborate the story.

That rule is based on the Biblical book of Deuteronomy: "No single witness should rise up against a man respecting any error or any sin."

In effect, the child's accusation is dismissed unless another person saw the abuse or another child comes forward with an allegation against the same church member. "

For more information on sex crimes in the Aylmer area, a web search    of "  Father's Touch , Donald D'Haene"        with yahoo or google provides too many links to list .
www.fatherstouch.com/About.htm   - takes you to Donald's site with more links and information about his book

http://watchtower.org.pl/forum/topic/6276-donald-d%26-8217%3Bhaene-%26-8220%3Bfather%26-8217%3Bs-touch%26-8221%3B/  -  an article in the JW  Watchtower in a different language but this quote is in  English -     "Cytat: Papa is worried Ronny will tell. “Don’t you dare to tell Mama about this. I gave you life and I can take it away.”

There are interesting links from the author's blog, including a letter from his father, the convicted abuser who was living with his fifth wife and more children in the Philippines.

Hello:

This is my first post on this board. Firstly, I want to extend my sympathies to Jesa and Jeb and all the family members on this board who have lost a loved one.

I became a reader of this board about a year ago. After extensively reading through the many Ontario threads I consequently became aware that TCAK was doing a show investigating some of Ontario's cold cases.  I have watched all of the episodes so far and I think that the TCAK team is doing a good job of shining a light back on these cases.


In regards to Jackie's episode I thought the segment about where Jackie was found in Otterville to be very informative and well done by Renee. The fact that a drop from the bridge was improbable was interesting.  The fact that the location was really not that isolated certainly does seem to suggest that the killer, or killers wanted Jackie to be found and I think that they knew that location very well and it was not a random pick.

Welcome to UC judebegin.  I agree with your observations, and I also think that the TCAK team is doing a great service on behalf of these unsolved cases.  I'm glad to see that you got your feet wet with your first post, and hope that you continue to be involved and add your comments on the forum.   :)

Thinking of you Jackie on your 60th birthday.  I wish I could give you a big hug.  I hugged your sister instead and it was meant for both of you.  Thinking of Jeb and Jackie's family and close friends.

A few things highlighted by JB in the above article can also be viewed in different ways. Anina was familiar with the area where her car was found and thought it a beautiful part of the country. She had apparently gone into work and left her wallet behind. Not too long ago there was an internet site with a list of things people should think about before committing suicide. One important point when disappearing was not to do it in such a way that suspicion would be cast on an innocent party. Such as a spouse or room mate. Leaving id wallet etc behind was suggested but not where it would make it appear anyone there was involved in some sort of malicious event. A suicide note was also strongly recommended.

Both the chosen location of the vehicle and leaving personal items at work instead of home could be viewed as the actions of a responsible person intent on the unthinkable. If there was a suicide note found would we be told? Does the public have any Right to know? This would also explain the manner the Police are treating the disappearance.

Quote
Hundsdoerfer’s roommate, Caroline Hendley, is the driving force behind the Help Us Find Anina campaign. Hendley, who has known Hundsdoerfer for six years and lived with her for two, reported her missing.

It would be the proper thing to do not to implicate the roomate if this was Anina's chosen course of action.

To Jacqueline on your 60th; eternal peace
To jeb and jesa; condolences but also congratulations on your ongoing efforts and successes this past year
To the rest of us; keep digging, researching, trying, spreadsheeting and basically doing whatever else it takes to uncover the truth.

General Discussion / Re: MALAYSIAN FLIGHT 370 LOST MARCH, 2014 IN INDIAN OCEAN

I watched a special on the Discovery channel this afternoon related to Flt 370.  I listened to their explanations and did not see this program before. They mentioned the time the terrorists hijacked the 911 planes. They stated that the hijackers turned off the responders and the other detector that would be able to tell where the plane was, the same exactly things were turned off on Flt 370. They indicated that the pilot would know where these buttons were. Now if terrorists took over planes previously in NY and flew them into the towers, what is to say these two men that had stolen passports did not get into the cockpit and do this. They would only have to know the information of where to shut off the responders. They could have read up on what the hijackers did in 911 and they could have studied the cockpit of an aircraft. I am not totally convinced it was the pilot and co-pilot that did this.   They are still not hopeful in this documentary, that all the information they want will be on the black boxes. And this is because of the time the plane was in the air, six or seven hours after they were last heard from and that some of the information would be taped over. Hopefully they find the black boxes, but they may never know what happened to Flt 370. And they can't accuse anybody, because they don't know who was responsible for this tragedy. This doc will be coming on the Discovery Channel on another day, watch for it, it will be advertised. :o :o :o :o :o
