Body found in parking lot
34-year-old Owen Sound man charged with manslaughter
By Jonathon JACKSON with files from Michael DEN TANDT and Bill HENRY, Page A1
An Owen Sound man has been charged with manslaughter after the death of an Owen Sound businessman died after what police believe may have been an "altercation" Monday night.
James MORELLI, 34, has been remanded in custody pending a bail hearing today. He was charged after William "Larry" HILSDEN was found unconsciious in a downtown parking lot Monday night.
Two people were originally taken into custody Tuesday, but one was later released.
Chief Tom KAYE of the Owen Sound Police Services said earlier Tuesday, before any charges had been laid, that police were " investigating it as though there were foul play involved, but to what extent that is, we don't know."
Yellow crime scene tape cordoned off a large section of the municipal parking lot behind the Golden Sand restaurant, formerly the Ritz Cafe, on Tuesday.
Const. Chantelle BEIRNES of the Mount Forest-based Ontario Provincial Police Forensic Identification Unit and acting Capt. Greg SCOTT of Owen Sound Fire and Emergency Services filmed the lot from an aerial fire truck.
James MORTON lives in an apartment above the restaurant. He said in an interview he was returning from a walk Monday night when he saw two men in the parking lot. One was lying on the ground next to the open driver's door of a truck, his legs under the vehicle.
"I thought the other guy had beat him up or something," MORTON said, "but he said, 'I found him like this and I can't get a pulse.' I tried and I couldn't get one either."
MORTON said the first man called 911. Emergency services worked on the unconscious man for some time before moving him to the Owen Sound hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
The cause of death was not released by police and hospital staff declined to provide that information. Police said in a news release Tuesday night an autopsy will be performed in London on Thursday.
Darlene NELSON, a server at the Golden Sand restaurant, said HILSDEN was a regular customer at the restaurant, eating there between five and seven days a week.
"He was my landlord for six years and I love him dearly," NELSON said.
She said HILSDEN, 61, ate a late meal Monday and left through the rear entrance at about 10 p.m. According to a news release from the city police, he was found unconscious approximately 30 minutes later in the parking lot.
Few other details have been released but acting Staff Sgt. Vince WURFEL said in the news release police would like to speak to anyone who "may have witnessed an altercation in the municipal parking lot in the 900 block of 3rd Avenue East."
People are asked to call the police at 519-376-1234 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
HILSDEN owned a number of residential properties and businesses in and near Owen Sound over the years. They included a restaurant along the East Bayshore Road, a downtown home electronics store called Hilsden Sight and Sound and the Ted and Grace's snack bar at the corner of 2nd Avenue and 14th Street West. He was in the process of rebuilding Ted and Grace's after a 2004 fire gutted the landmark.
"He was always a good employer to work for," said Jamie JOHNSTON, who worked for several years at Hilsden Sight and Sound. "He always treated us good… even when times were tough, he always made sure I got paid."
HILSDEN's brother, Ronald HILSDEN, said Tuesday the family did not wish to comment.

DENHOFF o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2006-04-05 published
DENHOFF, Patricia Witham (née STOCKTON)
Passed away on March 31, 2006, in Vancouver. Born in Calgary in 1925, Pat attended Branksome Hall private school in Toronto, where she made life-long Friends and became head Girl in her senior year. After high school, Pat returned to Calgary to start a remarkable journalism career that saw her become one of the first women to break through the newspaper world's glass ceiling. Always an excellent listener and ever eager for that elusive 'scoop', Pat started as a cub reporter at The Albertan, where in 1950 she was assigned to cover the visit of (then) Princess Elizabeth, being rewarded with many front-page articles about the royal tour. It was at The Albertan that she met and married fellow reporter Jack DENHOFF, who remained the love of her life through 58 years of marriage and with whom she had five children. At work or at play, whether editing each other's stories or enjoying bridge and cribbage, they remained each other's very best friend. As newlyweds, Pat and Jack bravely bought the weekly newspaper in Unity, Saskatchewan, where they encountered and wrote about many leading figures of the day. Then Saskatchewan Premier Tommy Douglas stopped by the paper during one election campaign and, when he showed prowess on the typesetting (linotype) machine, he was rewarded with a fine, home-cooked dinner. As the family started to grow, Pat and Jack moved to the bigger city of Saskatoon, where Pat soon proved she could handle the demands of five young children and being the editor of the Saskatchewan Teachers' Federation's magazine. Her work at the magazine brought her many awards and many more life-long Friends. Pat was always drawn to creative people, whether they were artists, musicians, business people or politicians. Her career in journalism brought her many Friends within the faculties of the University of Saskatchewan and she delighted in the social life of Saskatoon. After Pat and Jack moved out west to Vancouver, Pat became editor of the British Columbia Medical Journal and then the British Columbia Teachers' Federation Journal, both of which won numerous awards under her leadership. Pat's excellence in journalism was largely due to her love for people. She had a remarkable ability to encourage everyone she met to tell her their story, whether they were the local grocer or a prominent politician. As busy and fulfilled as her life was, Pat always found time to smell the lilacs and the roses and she loved to entertain. Always a genuinely gracious hostess, Pat had a knack of making everyone feel important and welcome. Pat loved having her family around her and some of her happiest times in later years with Jack were winters spent south in Palm Springs, where her children and grandchildren would often join them. Pat was also an active volunteer wherever she happened to live. She was president of the Victorian Order of Nurses in Saskatchewan and active in the Anglican Church for many years. Pat is survived her husband Jack, her five children, Stephanie (Ken) HARRISON, Marshall DENHOFF, Eric (Karin) DENHOFF, Kathryn DENHOFF and Amy DENHOFF, along with her 9 grandchildren, Graeme, Thomas, Cameron, Matthew, Andrew, Emma, Philip, David and Kathlyn. A private family memorial service will be held at a later date. Donations in lieu of flowers may be made to the M.S. Society of British Columbia.

Alcohol tied to Pennsylvania crash
Tragic Christmas: Wrong-way driver kills Pickering father, son and daughter
By Raveena AULAKH, Page A1
Pickering, Ontario -- It was the vacation the ST- DENIS family had been planning since September: Christmas with an aunt and uncle in Florida, and then a week-long cruise to the Bahamas and Mexico.
They left for Fort Lauderdale in the family van on Friday evening.
Seven hours later, Roger ST- DENIS, his son and one daughter were dead after a head-on collision with a pickup truck travelling the wrong direction on a Pennsylvania highway.
"This is not Christmas," said a teary-eyed Angela Paula ST- DENIS as she hugged daughter Thérèse ST- DENIS. Angela ST- DENIS has a fractured breast bone, her daughter scrapes and bruises.
Yesterday they were in their Pickering home, near Toronto, surrounded by Friends and family.
"My husband didn't let us do much shopping. He said we would do it all in Florida."
Mr. ST-DENIS, 52, his son Paul François, 21, and daughter Angela Michelle, 15, died at the scene. Ms. ST- DENIS, 52, and her oldest daughter Thérèse, 22, were treated in a Bedford, Pa., hospital before being released and returning home.
Jeremy GRIMES, 23, who was driving the pickup truck, was treated at hospital.
Pennsylvania State Police, Bedford Station, said alcohol was a factor in the crash. Charges are pending against Mr. GRIMES.
Yesterday, Ms. ST- DENIS said that she had been "sort of watching the traffic and dozing in the middle in the backseat."
"The next thing I heard was a big explosion. When I opened my eyes, I saw that my 15-year-old daughter, who had been sitting to my left, had been thrown out of the car."
Her husband and son were trapped inside. "I was later told they died on impact," Ms. ST- DENIS said. Her younger daughter, who had been ejected from the van, had a weak pulse. "A woman who was driving by came to help. She said she was a nurse and felt Angela's pulse. It was very weak."
Police said the pickup struck the left front of the family's van.
"It was like a big force pushing the car," said Thérèse, an engineering student at Queen's University in Kingston. "I remember hearing my mother screaming my sister's name."
A tractor-trailer driver who had been just ahead of their van called 911.
"He told me later that he flashed the truck's lights to tell the pickup driver that he was on the wrong side," Ms. ST- DENIS said. "But the pickup driver nicked into him before he slammed into our van."
Mr. ST-DENIS, who had been driving the van, was a computer networker with the Bank of Montreal.
Paul had been in the fourth year of a computer software development program at Seneca College, York, while Angela was in Grade 10 at Étienne Brûlé School.
"Angela was a gymnast with Pickering Athletic Centre," said Ms. ST- DENIS, a teacher at Sacred Heart Catholic School in Scarborough area. "She had just cut off her hair and donated it to the Cancer Society," her mother said, wiping away tears.
The family had not had a holiday together for a long time.
"We had a 92-year-old aunt who lived with us," Ms. ST- DENIS said. "We never left her alone. She passed away recently and so we were going away together.
"Next Saturday, we would've been on the cruise."
The atmosphere in the Pickering house was sombre. Roger and Angela ST-DENIS had been married for 23 years. Yesterday mother and daughter held onto on another.
Ms. ST-DENIS's brother, Frank CIRONE, tried to console his grieving sister and niece.
Mr. CIRONE described his niece Angela and nephew Paul as angels. "Roger volunteered for St. Vincent's Kitchen as a co-ordinator once a month. While Angela volunteered as the chef, the kids always joined to help for the day."
Despite a hectic schedule, Mr. CIRONE said, his brother-in-law was involved with many charities and did a lot of volunteer work. He was closely associated with Victim Crisis Assistance and Referral Services for Durham Police. He had been acknowledged and honoured for his work.
"He was a regular blood donor -- he told me once he first donated blood when he was a teenager," said Mr. CIRONE, who shared his brother-in-law's love for hockey and the Toronto Maple Leafs.
"He was so full of life, hated to sit idle for even a second."
He said his brother-in-law, who used to belong to the Pickering Sailing Club, recently donated his sailboat to Sea Scouts. "That's the kind of a person he was -- very giving."
Mr. CIRONE had been with the family Friday evening at their home, just before they left for Fort Lauderdale in their Toyota. He remembers they were all excited.
"I wanted to wish them a Merry Christmas and a safe journey."
The funeral will be held January 3 at St. Isaac Jogues Roman Catholic Church, on Finch Avenue in Pickering.
