The Canada goose is a protected species and punishable by law for killing one. Also imo, when do animal killers become human killers? Do they switch back and forth ... if there's no human available, will they strike an animal? Why kill a defenseless goose and then crush her eggs? It wasn't an act of self defense so it was an act of violence. Next step could be a human. In my humble opinion.

Thank you. The one link with the video had no article and this article is the same as from the link I posted so I guess I didn't miss anything.

All we know is that the last person to see Jessica was her boss whom she told she had a ride home and she let him/her know when her ride arrived. Whomever the ride was is unknown to the general audience. Room mate did not see her after he dropped her off at work earlier.

Police are examining or re-examining for evidence/clues. They are working hard.

While I can appreciate wild life just like everyone else.......

Looks like the police have their hands full on this one.

UPDATE: Police search for goose killer
Orangeville Banner
By Bill Tremblay   


Police are asking for the public's assistance in solving the murder of a Canadian Goose in Erin.

On May 12, police received a call about the goose that was deliberately killed at the community centre known as Centre 2000. A resident discovered the goose, as well as three crushed eggs, between the baseball diamond and the skateboard park.  The Upper Credit Humane Society attended to assist with the investigation. The goose died of blunt trauma to the head.

“(The humane society) indicated there were no bite marks on the goose,” said Wellington OPP Const. Bob Bortolato. “If it were another animal the goose would have been ripped apart and the eggs would have been eaten.”

Anyone with information about the bird's death is asked to call Const. Kirk MacDonald at 1-888-310-1122.

Don't know which police force this would be under.
Possibly Peel Regional of the OPP.??  Where is the wild life constables?  Why the cops?? ::)

If under the OPP, I hope they still can find some time on their hands in solving the murder of Sonia Varaschin!  .

‘Her boys have no mother’: Jessica Newman’s mom waits for answers

 NANCY HIXT     By Nancy Hixt      
Crime Reporter  Global News

CALGARY – The mother of Jessica Newman, whose body was found in a ditch in a rural area northeast of the city last week, is preparing to say goodbye to her daughter as police work to make an arrest in the case.

“There’s nothing we can do to fix it, we just have to now learn to accept this new reality,” said Rhonda Stewart.

The 24-year-old was missing for eight weeks before her body was found and was last seen alive at her workplace, the Water Grill. She leaves behind three young boys.

“Through counsellors we know this isn’t over for them…they will get to an age when they’re older and they’re going to know what happened,” said Stewart through tears. “Who…and why… they’re going to need further counseling.”

Police haven’t named any suspects or laid charges in her murder, but confirm persons of interest in the case include those who were the last to see her before she disappeared.

The homicide unit has searched the home Newman’s ex-boyfriend—the father of her child—and extended family lived in at the time of her disappearance March 10. Newman was scheduled to attend a custody hearing the next day.

“I believe if there’s somebody out there that’s done this and they are sorry, they’ll come clean,” said Stewart. “If they don’t come clean now, I believe they’re not sorry, then I think they should get the maximum sentence.”

Jessica’s mother has many questions about what happened to her daughter, but in the meantime, can only hope those responsible will be brought to justice soon.

“It’s really, really hard,” she said. “Yeah, they’re still eating dinner, having fun going to movies, doing whatever they want and they’ve taken that away from my daughter forever. But also, her boys have no mother forever.”

A celebration of life for Jessica will be held June 5 at the Pineridge Community Centre. A GoFundMe page has also been set up to help support Newman’s family.

(Note: The ex is only one person of interest, sounds like there may be a few more.

However, he has not moved up to the Suspect Category.)

SAP - March 10 is the date she disappeared.  The home was recently searched.

Thank you for the update JB. Video doesn't work for me. Is that all that was said? If they are searching the Ex's home, they would need a warrant and they need a certain amount of evidence or reasons to obtain a warrant, correct?

Seems like the ex's home was already searched March 10th according to the above link.

I do not believe sexual violence has anything to do with mental illness  , it seems every single person who is suspected of a crime in the city of Vancouver the story must include mental illness as the reason the crime took place and so we should just shake our head and be good sheep and feel sorry for the criminal .
  I absolutely do not believe his schizophrenia had anything to do with his actions. He is an experienced thief who has 40 reasons for every single person on a jury to convict him as a dangerous offender and leave him to live indefinitely as an inmate .
people with Schizophrenia   are not criminal schizophrenia does not cause this behaviour . I do think it might be nore of a question of being able to roam around with a crack pipe (smoking it out in the open which is apparently legal in vancouver) and a tire iron . HMMMMM interesting .


Jessica, I totally agree. Whenever these creeps get caught sexually assaulting someone, oh, the poor man has a mental disorder. And many women have lived with the trauma for a life time of sexual assault from these criminals. It has nothing to do with mental illness, it has to do with violence and nothing to do with sex. It is control over women. It is making someone feel fear and these bastards enjoy what they do. Women have to start arming themselves with bear spray, pepper spray, something in your pocket that you can take out and spray in their eyes. I wouldn't give a damn if it blinded the person, if it was me. There are many women out there who have been raped and traumatized and have never come forward. For every one that has come forward, there is about five that haven't or more. Violence against women is on the rise, as far as I'm concerned. Domestic violence is also very high and this is very alarming that there is no way to know how really violent some men are. I pray that if anyone is out there that does know of someone that is violent and suspect them of a violent crime, whether it is your son, brother, husband or whatever, to report them and have them investigated. That is my voice on domestic violence.

Yeah, they supposedly have DNA from those droplets but if they are not in the DNA database then they it could mean it was one a time murder for the perpetrator(s).  Perhaps a crime of passion...

Interesting....about the pics jobo? The one pic of a mans face is dated 2013.  The other image of a gate with an old barn in the background is kinda useless because there is nothing that stands out.  That is what most homes look like out in the country in that area...you could look for 3 silos, but again probably many farms in that area have 3 silos bunched together.  that picture seems to be drawn in either 2008 or 2010....can't read it that well.  There are many windmills in the area now too, so you could interpret the trees as windmills.  But again, too general of an image with too many interpretations.

But it makes sense that someone followed her home from the reunion dance.  Perhaps it was a ex who just happen to be in town for the dance?  I have this feeling it may be someone who still lives in the area and always had a thing for her and just chose that night to try and make a move on her and was rejected and the situation got out of hand...

I have family and friends in that area so I am going to have to ask what they have heard about it when I go and visit in a few weeks.
