Dead cyclist 'came a long way in life'
Clarence BRIGHAM, 44, of Windsor died of hypothermia.
By Kelly PEDRO, Free Press Reporter
A cyclist who died of hypothermia in a farm field near Wheatley was remembered yesterday as a kind man generous with his time. Clarence BRIGHAM of Windsor had been a maintenance worker at Brentwood Recovery House, a drug and alcohol rehabilitation centre, for about five years, said friend and co-worker Ken DURETTE.
"He was a bit of a loner, but he came a long way in his life," he said yesterday.
BRIGHAM, who loved to ride his bicycle, was quick to help when needed, DURETTE said.
He often helped kids learn to overcome reading problems and when DURETTE needed someone to help put up drywall in his house, BRIGHAM was there for three days.
"He was a good little guy," he said. "Life just sort of gave him a bad deal."
DURETTE said BRIGHAM, who suffered from schizophrenia, didn't seem well recently and some co-workers took him to the hospital about a week before his death.
But BRIGHAM, a private person, got tired of waiting and left, he said.
The 44-year-old man lived alone in an apartment in Windsor but had family on Walpole Island.
Chatham-Kent police say they believe BRIGHAM was depressed and had stopped taking his medication. They are awaiting toxicology tests.
BRIGHAM's body was found Friday in a field on the Fourth Concession Line of the former Romney Township northeast of Wheatley.
Det. Ed GIBSON said he believes BRIGHAM was riding his bike and became confused.
"It was just really bad timing for him," GIBSON said. "It was just a tragic accident."
Foul play is not suspected, but police are still looking for BRIGHAM's bicycle and why he was in Wheatley.
Anyone with information is asked to call GIBSON at 436-6622 or Det. Const. Kirk EARLEY at 436-6623.
Meanwhile, Chatham-Kent police said a body found face down in a creek near the 18 Wheeler Truck Stop in Tilbury Monday was that of a 77-year-old Tilbury woman.
The woman had been reported missing by family shortly after the body was found.
The woman had been seen within 24 hours of going missing, police said.
Her name was not released. An autopsy to determine cause of death begins today in London.
