Psychopath and sex predator Don Gazley – who is profiled in Episode 4 of the podcast – is back behind bars, weeks after he was released from a federal institution in British Columbia, Cancrime learned. “Don Gazley is currently in custody at a federal institution,” Jean-Paul Lorieau, a B.C.-based spokesman for Correctional Service of Canada told me today (March 10). Lorieau won’t say why Gazley’s release was revoked. Gazley was deemed a high risk to commit new sex crimes against children so he was kept locked up until he had served every day of his last sentence, an eight-year term for sex crimes committed in Ontario.
UPDATED JAN. 14 Kingston Police announced early this morning that Davidson-Brown had left Kingston. They didn’t say where he was headed.
The case of child sex predator Eric William Davidson-Brown (inset) drew a torrent of attention on my social media channels. Since I posted his photo and the details announced by police of his release to Kingston, Ontario, the post has been shared more than 3,000 times and, by late on January 13, had drawn nearly 200 comments. I was surprised since Davidson-Brown isn’t really an unusual case. There are hundreds similar ex-convicts living on the street in Canadian communities every day.
A federal convict who escaped from minimum-security Beaver Creek penitentiary, near Gravenhurst, Ontario, and then led police in the Toronto area on a wild chase, is a savage domestic abuser who appears to aspire to kill women, Cancrime research shows. Robert John Saunders, 57, was recaptured today after a 200-kilometre chase that ended in a crash.
The National Parole Board’s file on rapist Rene Bourdon (inset) is a growing inventory of lies. Fuelled by pornography, Bourdon uses the Internet to troll for women he can drug and assault. Cancrime introduced him recently, with this post about his latest violation of release conditions. The 31-page record of National Parole Board decisions (available after the jump) catalogues his repeated refusals to follow rules meant to curb his sexual deviancy.
Rapist Rene Bourdon (inset) was considered so dangerous when he was sentenced in North Bay in 2003 for attacks on three women that a judge imposed one of the most restrictive legal leashes available to rein in a sex offender’s deviancy – short of a life sentence in prison. But as Bourdon’s case has progressed, it’s clear there’s a significant loophole in the law that he’s exploiting.
