David Carmichael found to be NCR of murdering his son….runs as an independent candidate in Huntsville, Ont

A man determined to have been mentally ill who was subsequently found not guilty of murdering his son is running as an independent candidate in Huntsville, Ont. David Carmichael, 52, says he knows he probably he won’t win against Conservative incumbent and Industry Minister Tony Clement, but he hopes elected MPs and voters will listen to his campaign message, which highlights the potential dangers of anti-depressants and other medications.

On his website David Carmichael states that his hope is that some of the information posted may help prevent suicidal and homicidal tragedies.

In July 2003, at the age of 45, I experienced my first major depression. I started taking 40mg. of the antidepressant Paxil a day. By September, I was feeling mentally healthy again. After forgetting to take Paxil for a few days in February 2004, I weaned myself off the drug. I started to feel depressed again in July.

My symptoms included insomnia, increased anxiety, rapid weight loss, low concentration and a lack of energy. I put myself back on 40mg. of Paxil a day. A few days after I started taking Paxil again, I was having suicidal thoughts. I thought I could get rid of the thoughts and recover more quickly if I increased my dosage. On July 17, I started taking 60mg. of Paxil a day. Three days later, I planned my suicide. I went from planning my suicide to planning a murder-suicide to planning a murder. On July 31, 2004, I killed my 11-year-old son Ian. I was charged with first-degree murder.

In November 2004, I was diagnosed by one of the leading forensic psychiatrists in the world as being in a “major depression” with “psychotic episodes” when I killed Ian. In May 2005, his assessment was supported by another leading forensic psychiatrist, who was hired by the crown attorney. On September 30, 2005, I was judged to be “not criminally responsible on account of a mental disorder” for murdering Ian. I received an absolute discharge from the Ontario Review Board on December 4, 2009.

David’s message is a stark reminder of the complexities surrounding mental illness…. and one of the reasons why we need a discussion!

BC Attorney General needs to consider more than just the Allan Schoenborn decision.

British Columbia Attorney General Barry Penner is now saying that officials will reconsider the decision to allow child killer Allan Schoenborn escorted access to the community after Port Coquitlam member of the legislature Mike Farnworth spoke out that it was “outrageous” that the review board did not consider that Schoenborn’s ex-wife, Darcie Clarke, was living in Coquitlam, B.C., when the board decided to grant escorted access to the community surrounding the Forensic Psychiatric Hospital in nearby Port Coquitlam.

Schoenborn was found Not Criminally Responsible (NCR) of murdering his three children three years ago. The BC “justice” system has been criticized for the NCR ruling as Allan Schoenborn actions after the murder clearly indicate a person who was well aware of his actions to everyone but those responsible for seeing justice done. Allan Schoenborn was found NCR a year ago.

Several recent media reports have stated that Ms. Clarke lives in Coquitlam, close to the Forensic Psychiatric Hospital, where Mr. Schoenborn has been held since his trial last year.

But Dr. Johann Brink, who is clinical director of the psychiatric hospital and would had a role in approving any outings, appeared to learn of Ms. Clarke’s place of residence during an interview, when CKNW’s Bill Good asked Dr. Brink about the public-safety implications of releasing a mentally ill individual into the community where his wife is “living in fear.”

Dr. Brink responded he “certainly was not aware of his ex-wife’s whereabouts,” adding that the information could change his recommendations on supervised releases for Mr. Schoenborn.

A spokeswoman for B.C. Mental Health and Addiction Services, the agency that oversees the hospital where Mr. Schoenborn now resides, said the agency “made great efforts to learn the whereabouts of family members who would have an interest in Mr. Schoenborn going out on community visits.”

“This is standard protocol,” Laurie Dawkins said on Wednesday. “Unfortunately, some of the individuals connected with this case made great effort to remain anonymous – which is understandable – but it prevented us from knowing about their current residence.”

Review board chairman Bernd Walter said the board did not know about Ms. Clarke’s location, Mr. Penner said. A victim impact statement filed by Ms. Clarke included no information on where she was living, nor was such formation required.

It has only been a year since the trial… British Columbia Attorney General Barry Penner might want to consider reviewing more than just the decision.

“Many Voices, Many Paths”… and another Review Board that just doesn’t get it!

Layne Larose may have murdered David Kennedy and Hughie Sayers, but the brutal slaying had many other victims. So with April 10 – 16 being declared Victims of Crime Awareness Week in Saskatchewan, the week is an opportunity to raise awareness about the needs of victims of crime and tragedy in Saskatchewan. This year’s theme is “Many Voices, Many Paths”.

So it is fitting that many Saskatchewan voices went unheeded when nine years after David Kennedy and Hughie Sayers were brutally murdered with an axe, the man found not criminally responsible for their deaths will be free to live in the Battlefords.

Layne Larose will be allowed to live in an approved home in North Battleford or Battleford with an operator committed to monitoring Larose and reporting to his treatment team, according to a decision by the Sask. Review Board on Friday following an application for release at a hearing in October, 2010. At this hearing numerous victim impact statements were read while numerous others were rejected.

A board hearing will be scheduled when an appropriate home has been located and conditions of Larose’s release will be set at that time.

Larose, now 48, was initially detained in the Regional Psychiatric Centre and later Saskatchewan Hospital, where he was treated for mental illness.

Justice Peter Foley, chair of the Sask. Review Board, wrote in his decision that Larose represents a continuing risk to the community, but that risk is small. “He is now ready to participate in the community and take his place as one of its productive members”.

Many family members of the victims questioned the wisdom of releasing Layne Larose, but especially into their community where encounters with Larose would be hard to avoid. Despite Layne Larose appeal for forgiveness, anger and resentment towards both Layne Larose and the Saskatchewan justice system for their handling of the murders of David Kennedy and Hughie Sayers continues to be emotional charged. There are fears that encounters could quickly escalate into situations that bring further trauma and heartbreak to families that have already suffered enough.

A VOICE FOR ANG!!!!… Angela’s mother speaks out

Sigga Lynn Holm says:

Hi, I am the mother of the victim Angela Holm. Here is my story. 

My babygirl, did not deserve the tragedy she endured. Back in May of 2008 Angela underwent a cord blood transplant. Her brother Randall (whom passed away Jan.2008) and her suffered from an immune disorder, Hypogammaglobianiemia. After we lost Randall, the Dr’s. pushed for Angie’s transplant, Randall was to get one too, however we (Dr.’s & I) couldn’t get him strong enough to go through the procedure. Unfortunately Angie’s cord blood did not take, her body was rejecting the transplant…so now the next step was an actual bone marrow transplant. The Dr.’s gave Angie a month and a bit break. Then in Sept. 2008 we did it all over again for the bone marrow transplant…I must say my babygirl was a very strong willed person who never gave up. Our prayers were answered. The transplant was working….Angie was winning!!!! Our miracle!!!!

On the weekend prior to May 25, 2009 my babygirl went to spend it with her Uncle Rudolph and his family. She was really close with his children and step children and loved spending time with them. She would phone me before she went to bed at night to say “k mom I’m going to bed, good night, I love you and I’ll call you when I get up..” She never got to call me in the morning again….instead my morning 6AM call was from her dad telling me Angie had been stabbed, and was at the hospital. I make it down to the hospital only to be told, my babygirl didn’t make it, and when I said I wanted to see her, I was told no. Angela had 13 stab wounds and 6 defence wounds, which means the offender Daniel Jesse James Munroe made a total of 19 attempts on her, as she was laying asleep on the couch!!! Totally unprovoked…her future and life taken just like that, and now he’s NCR!!! I don’t understand!!!

I’m gonna continue now with my VIS (victim impact statement). I’ll post the original and that will be followed by the edited one, which was edited by the review board.

A VOICE FOR ANG!!!!
I’m writting this for Angela Rachelle Louise Gail Holm, Baby Ang, my beautiful babygirl. I finially get to voice a voice for Ang; this is what the offender(Munroe) hear’s….VOICES, and yet as he committed murder you can’t tell me NOR convince me, Munroe didn’t hear my babygirl’s screams, DON’T DAN, PLEASE DON’T, PLEASE STOP!!!! Now he’s gonna hear my voice.

I was taught by my mom not to use hate, to instead use dislike or don’t like; but as for you Munroe, you’ve taught me to literally hate you!!!! I HATE YOU DANIEL JESSE JAMES MUNROE!!!!!!(sorry mom)

Angie was the second and last child born to me. She suffered and immune deficency that required her to get monthly gamma injections. In the months prior to her tragedy she underwent a cord blood transplant which didn’t take, so the Dr.’s did a second attempt with a bone marrow transplant. This time it was working for her. As I mentioned earlier the monthly gamma injections came to an end, right on her 16th birthday, Feb.24/09. Our miracle, no more monthly needles. She was winning her battle. The fear of losing my babygirl to the medicle procedure (bone marrow transplant) was gone. Our journey was rough but she was a trooper and never gave up, even on her sickest day and nights, and believe me there were many.

As her body began to change, her life began to change. She was back at school part time, had a part time home tutor and was waitressing. Yes she had a job, something you NEVER had Munroe.

Angie was my rock, my survivor!! After we lost Randall (her brother, my son) in Jan.08 she was all I had left and you took that away from me!!!!

Throughout her struggles she would always seem to smile, sing and dance around. Always listening to music dancing around the house shaken her booty. I miss my babygirl so much. I miss her jumping into my bed on weekends, tickleing me and giving me butterfly kisses, which WAS us fluttering our eyelash’s together.

The Dr’s admired her strength, as so did I.

Because of you Munroe, Christmas will never be the same,I won’t see my baby graduate and I won’t be able to experience her wedding. When you too my daughter away you also took those away. Not to mention Angie would have been 18 on Feb.24. My life will never be the same because of you. I HATE you for this!!!

May my baby RIP!!!! And don’t worry Munroe, HER VOICES WILL HAUGHT YOU!!!!!!

(this was followed by a poem I wrote for my babygirl before she went into hospital, it will follow the edited vis)

And now the EDITED VERSION!!!!!

Judge found Schoenborn NCR as no reasonable or rationale person could do such a thing… Schoenborn is now free

Allan Dwayne Schoenborn committed a crime so horrendous the judge found he could not be held criminally responsible for his acts, because no reasonable or rationale person could do such a thing. “I find that Mr. Schoenborn did commit the first-degree murder for each of his children … but is not criminally responsible on account of mental disorder,” Justice Robert Powers of B.C. Supreme Court ruled.

A year later, the B.C. father found not criminally responsible for murdering his three children has been granted escorted leave from the psychiatric hospital where he is confined. The B.C. Review Board will allow Allan Schoenborn to take supervised day trips into the community, as the 42-year-old requested at a review hearing Tuesday.
Schoenborn was found not criminally responsible last winter in the murders of his children — aged five, eight and 10 — exactly three years ago today in Merritt, B.C. He has since been diagnosed with delusional disorder and has been receiving treatment at a psychiatric hospital.
In their decision, the review board says Schoenborn may have escorted access to the community, but must not use alcohol or drugs, must not possess a weapon, and can have no contact with his ex-wife.

The hospital director supported Schoenborn’s supervised visits into the community, but says the man still has “unresolved anger issues.”

Regardless of your position on Tim’s Law, no reasonable or rationale person could find this acceptable… Nobody anywhere!
