Man killed lying on train tracks
Police suspect alcohol may have been a factor in the death of William Hubert MATER, 23.
By Amanda ROBINSON, Sun Media, Tues., July 31, 2007
The city and Canadian Pacific don't have any plans to improve pedestrian safety at a downtown railway crossing near where a 23-year-old man was struck and killed by a train on the weekend.
"We have no reason to think that this level crossing is any different than any other crossing, Dave LECKIE, the city's director of roads and transportation, said yesterday.
"Unless we hear differently from the police report, we have no plans for pedestrian improvement," said LECKIE.
Police identified the man killed as William Hubert MATER from Ridgeway, near Fort Erie.
MATER was a recent graduate in kinesiology from the University of Western Ontario, said Ann Hutchinson, a spokesperson for University of Western Ontario.
MATER was lying on the tracks about 2: 30 a.m. Sunday when he was struck and killed by the train, said CP spokesperson Breanne Feigel.
He wasn't at a pedestrian crossing, but on the tracks in between St. George and the Talbot underpass, said Feigel.
"They (train crew) put on their emergency brakes and used their whistle… but it's not easy to stop a train from moving," she said.
She says accidents such as Sunday's highlight the need for greater awareness about the dangers of trains.
LECKIE said there haven't been problems with pedestrians at the St. George and Piccadilly Street crossing, but there have been with vehicles.
In the last three years, there've been four collisions there.
Those tracks are the only train crossing in the city without gates, so drivers often try to run the crossing to avoid stopping for trains.
In March the city, with Transport Canada and CP, decided to install gates at the track next year.
Brad SCRINKO, co-chair of the Richmond Row Business Association, called the accident "tragic."
"We would be happier if the train tracks were routed around the city," said SCRINKO.
At the train crossing on Richmond Street east of St. George, a bar hotspot, the city plans to install pedestrian gates -- that may look like mini-road gates -- because of the large number of people that hang around that area.
The city is in discussion with CP to finalize the design, said LECKIE.
Police suspect alcohol may have been a factor in MATER's death.
"When people drink, there is already a responsibility that the bar has to take. But what people do outside of the bars they have to take responsibility for," SCRINKO said.
Often, pedestrians put themselves at risk when they jump between the cars of stopped trains, he said.
On his page on Facebook, a social-networking site on the Internet, MATER was listed as working at The Beer Store in London.
He planned to go back to school in September to take a few courses, he wrote on a friend's Facebook page.

In loving memory of Ken on the 25th anniversary of his passing, September 19, 1982.
Loved ones die but love lives on
And memories then remain.
Just like a lovely rainbow
That follows after rain.
These golden treasured memories
Help comfort us today
And bring our lives a warmful glow
That never fades away.
We think of you as living
In the hearts of those you touched
For nothing loved is ever lost
And you were loved so much.
- Loved and missed by all of your family.

SMITH, Rev. Robert "Robin" Bell, B.A., M.Ed., Ed.D., D.D.
Peacefully on September 25, 2007. Predeceased by his beloved wife and best friend, Marie SMITH, Robin was the cherished father of Janet and her husband Flemming MATHIASEN; proud grandfather of Karen O'MEARA and her husband Michael and of Lisa MATHIASEN and her husband Michael MASSA; and beloved great-grandfather of Madeline O'MEARA and Chloe MASSA. Robin was born in Belfast, Northern Ireland in 1924. In 1944 he began the process of offering for the Ministry for the Methodist Church of Ireland. In 1951 he and Marie McMICHAEL were married and began more than 54 years of committed love. In 1953 he applied for admission to The United Church of Canada and was invited to be assistant to the minister at Eglinton United Church, Toronto. A year later, he became minister of Barton Stone United Church in Hamilton and went on to become one of the editors of the New Curriculum of The United Church in 1960. Robin was awarded the Canadian Silver Jubilee Medal in 1977 in appreciation of his devoted service rendered at Rideau Hall. He earned two doctorates, 1976 from Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (U of T) in Adult Education and 1980 from Queen's University at Kingston, recognizing his contributions to family life work for the United Church of Canada and the World Council of Churches in Geneva. After retiring in 1988, his ministry continued in his contributions to his community. He wrote a brief for the United Church of Canada to the Royal Commission on New Reproductive Technologies. He was awarded the McGeachy Senior Scholarship for a survey and analysis of the attitudes of men towards the United Church, and he channeled his passion for family into the construction of The Ewart Angus Home for patients with Alzheimers and Dementia. Robin and Marie enriched their lives with travel, time at the cottage and they relished the special moments they spent with family and Friends. Robin will be dearly missed by many.

Murder charge expected in slaying
Police won't say if they found the body of a missing Sarnia woman
By Amanda ROBINSON, Sun Media, Wed., August 8, 2007
A Sarnia man and a Wyoming woman face charges in the slaying of a missing Sarnia woman.
Sarnia police would not say yesterday if they found the body of 45-year-old Shelley MATHIEU- READ, reported missing by a family member on July 29.
The family member hadn't seen her since May.
MATHIEU- READ was a drug addict who was living at 64 Finch Doctor in Sarnia, police said.
Police said foul play was involved in MATHIEU- READ's death but they did not release details about the cause.
A 36-year-old Sarnia man was arrested yesterday morning in downtown London and will be charged with murder, police said.
A 54-year-old Wyoming woman was arrested at a Wyoming home and will be charged with being an accessory after the fact of murder.
More details about about the case will be released at a news conference today, police said.

Help sought to find body
Sarnia police have charged the slaying victim's common-law husband and his sister.
By Jennifer O'BRIEN, Sun Media, Fri., August 10, 2007
Sarnia -- Police are urging rural landowners to search properties between Watford and Wyoming for a slain woman believed dumped in the area in the spring.
But even without the body of Shelley MATHIEU- READ, 45, Sarnia police said yesterday they had enough evidence to charge her common-law husband, Thomas MOFFIT, with second-degree murder.
MOFFIT, 36, is in custody on the charge. His sister, Kathy LONG, 54, of Wyoming, is charged with being an accessory after the fact.
"I can't get into the evidence, but there is certainly evidence&hellip to determine Shelley MATHIEU- READ has met a violent death," Sgt. Scott MacLEAN said at a news conference yesterday.
MATHIEU- READ, formerly of London, and MOFFIT, her partner of about six months, have a "history of domestic violence," he said.
MacLEAN said police believe there was a "domestic disturbance" in mid-May and MATHIEU- READ was killed.
Police have a daunting task in the search for MATHIEU- READ's body. They think she was dumped in mid-May, when the terrain, now blanketed by tall cornfields and overgrowing bush, was sparse.
More than 20 officers from Sarnia police searched a 39-hectare woodlot in the area yesterday.
"That's just one small sample of the area we're searching," MacLEAN said. Earlier in the week, Lambton Ontario Provincial Police assisted Sarnia police in a search on Churchill Line between Wyoming and Watford.
"It really is overwhelming. The landowners know their properties better than anyone, so we are asking for their assistance," MacLEAN said.
"We are looking for any signs of disturbances on their property tire tracks or areas that may have been disturbed as a possible gravesite."
MATHIEU- READ, a mother and grandmother known as a heavy drug user, was last seen by a neighbour on May 10, police said.
"Shelley was a sibling, a mother and a grandmother," said MacLEAN. "She struggled her whole life with drug addiction, but she kept in contact with her family. She was a very loved person."
MATHIEU- READ's daughter, Robin HARDMAN of Saint Thomas, reported her missing on July 29. HARDMAN hadn't seen her mother since May.
MATHIEU- READ moved to Sarnia from London in March. She and MOFFIT moved into a Finch Street apartment building in a well-kept complex.
Though MATHIEU- READ's daughter has said her mom moved to Sarnia to get "clean," neighbours in the 10-storey apartment building said yesterday both she and MOFFIT were known drinkers and drug users.
"We would hear them fighting all the time," said a woman who lives next to MOFFIT's apartment on the building's fourth floor.
The neighbour said MATHIEU- READ had been there only a short time when the two women shared an elevator.
"She was holding a PlayStation, and she had a book bag on her back, and she was bawling," the neighbour said.
In the elevator, MATHIEU- READ said she was sick of her boyfriend's drinking.
"She was crying and she said, 'I'm so lonely, I'm from London and I don't know anybody around here,' " said the neighbour, who asked not to be named.
After that, the woman said, another woman seemed to be living with MOFFIT, who remained in his apartment until last week.
Police said MOFFIT had once been charged with assaulting MATHIEU- READ but she didn't appear in court and the charge was dropped.
MOFFIT is known to Lambton Ontario Provincial Police, said spokesperson Const. John REURINK.
"We did investigate a sudden death where he was involved in the relationship with the deceased, but it was deemed that no foul play was suspected," REURINK said.
He said that case could be reopened if there were enough similarities to the MATHIEU- READ slaying.
How To Help Police
- Police believe a black 4X4 Ford F250 was used to to dump Shelley MATHIEU- READ's body somewhere off Churchill Line between Wyoming and Watford. They ask Churchill Line landowners in southeast Lambton County and western Middlesex County between Wyoming and Watford to check their properties.
- They also ask anyone who saw the truck to call Sarnia police at 519-344-8861 ext. 6077 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
