Police identify murder-suicide victims
Kathryn KNUDSEN and Douglas James BROWNE had a tempestuous 18-month relationship.
By Jennifer O'BRIEN, Sun Media, Fri., September 14, 2007
The man and woman killed in a murder-suicide in a Sarnia park this week had a rocky relationship for about 18 months, police said yesterday.
They were identified as Kathryn KNUDSEN, 41, of Sarnia and Douglas James BROWNE, 60, of St. Clair Shores, Michigan., but originally from Simcoe.
Autopsies showed both KNUDSEN and BROWNE died of gunshots, police said.
The shootings took place in daylight Tuesday in a busy parking lot at Centennial Park on Front Street, just hours before a scheduled concert.
Police released few details about either person, but Const. Bill BAINES said they had "an on again, off again relationship."
Police have wrapped up the investigation, he said, but are trying to figure out more about the weapon that was used and where it came from.
He said police don't have much information on the family life of either BROWNE or KNUDSEN, who moved to Sarnia two or three years ago. BROWN had lived in the U.S. since 1981.
KNUDSEN lived in a Front Street apartment building and didn't work, police said.

Sandy BAIRD 82
Ontario Publisher Began As A Paperboy
By Canadian Press, Page S8
Kitchener, Ontario -- Sandy BAIRD, a former publisher of the Waterloo Region Record, died at Freeport Health Centre in Kitchener, Ontario, on September 3. He was 82.
Colleagues at what is now The Record, a daily newspaper that serves both Kitchener and neighbouring Waterloo, described a man who was noted for his thoroughness - even going so far as to sleep with a police scanner on his bedside table to ensure no story fell through the cracks. "He listened to it all," said Don McCurdy, a retired executive editor. "If we missed something, he was all over it."
Born and raised in Kitchener, Mr. BAIRD delivered papers as a boy, then worked throwing bundles off a truck for other carriers, as an evening switchboard operator and as an office boy in the summers.
He joined the Royal Canadian Navy while still underage, serving on ships protecting Newfoundland-to-Ireland convoys and in the Normandy landings during the Second World War.
After the war, he studied journalism at the University of Western Ontario in London, graduating at the top of his class before joining The Record as a reporter.
Mr. BAIRD covered a variety of beats, worked as a copy editor and wrote a column that ran for more than 20 years. He climbed through executive positions before being named publisher in 1975.
He retired at 65 and continued writing a weekly column, but soon cut his ties to the paper in a dispute over how it was being edited. Known for his wit and folksy writing style, he displayed both in his final piece in The Record -- a letter to the editor in which he complained that "just about everyone but the weekend security man had been tinkering" with his copy.
He was predeceased by his wife, Connie, and by their only child, daughter Judith YORMAK. He is survived by grand_son, Ben YORMAK.
