Triple-murder at exclusive Ottawa condo
By Alex HEBERT and Kenneth JACKSON, Sun Media, Sun., July 1, Ottawa -- A retired federal court judge was found dead, bound to a chair and severely beaten in his luxury condominium yesterday along with his wife and elderly neighbour, both of whom had also been bound.
Neighbours identified the victims as Alban GARON, 77, his wife, Raymonde, and Jean Marie (Claire) BENISKOS.
The murders are Ottawa's seventh, eighth and ninth homicides of the year, six of which have occurred in June.
Police responded to a call from a neighbour at 10: 30 a.m. yesterday and arrived at the 10-storey luxury condominium located at 1510 Riverside Dr. to find the bodies of the victims.
Initially, paramedics were called to the scene to deal with stab wounds.
sources said the bodies appeared to have been there for a couple days.
Staff Sgt. Monique PERRAS gave little information about the murders and said there were no details on a weapon, a motive for the killings, or possible suspects.
"Ottawa police are canvassing the neighbourhood and building to find any possible information," she said. "We have no further information at this time."
An autopsy on the bodies -- which were still at the scene yesterday evening -- will be conducted in the next couple days.
Robert DUFAULT, a 15-year resident of the building who knows the GARONs, said the couple lived by themselves. He said BENISKOS, who lived next door to the couple, might be Raymonde's sister.
DUFAULT didn't know anyone who would want to harm the GARONs and said the building has tight security.
"You don't get in there unless you know somebody," he said, adding there are surveillance cameras at the front gate, in the lobbies and in every hallway, as well as a security guard on duty 24 hours a day.
"Nothing ever happens here," he said.
Yesterday, it appeared police were checking the spiked fence in front of the building, which could have served as an entry-point for the killer or killers.
Other residents DUFAULT spoke with were scared to leave their condos, he said.
GARON spent the last 20 years of his career as a judge and eventually chief justice of the Tax Court of Canada before retiring in 2004.

Triple slaying at upscale condo baffles police
Bodies of retired Ottawa judge, wife and neighbour found bound and gagged on 10th floor
By Daniel LEBLANC with a report from Canadian Press, Page A5
Ottawa -- Ottawa Police were searching yesterday for suspects, and a motive, in the slayings of a retired judge, his wife and a female neighbour on the 10th floor of an exclusive condominium tower.
"At this time, we cannot say if this was a random act or a targeted act. We don't know," Staff Sergeant Monique PERRAS of the Ottawa police told reporters yesterday, a day after the three bodies were found in the high-security Riviera condo complex near the Rideau River.
The victims were identified as former chief justice of the Tax Court Alban GARON, 77, his 70-year-old wife, Raymonde, and their neighbour, Marie-Claire BENISKOS.
Police did not say how the three died. But according to one neighbour, their bodies were found bound and gagged, apparently stabbed to death, and there was no sign of a forced entry.
"It's appalling, it's just inconceivable," said neighbour Andrée LEMIEUX- MARQUIS, who spent part of the weekend with the man who discovered the bodies.
According to Ms. LEMIEUX- MARQUIS, they were found Saturday morning by Ms. GARON's brother, Jean-Pierre LURETTE, who had not heard from the GARONs for a few days. Mr. LURETTE also lives in one of the three Riviera towers, at 1510 Riverside Dr.
"They were discovered lying on the floor, their faces down, all bloodied," Ms. LEMIEUX- MARQUIS said.
The luxurious, quiet condo towers - home to diplomats, judges and hockey players - has several security features.
There is a security guard at the gate and the complex is studded with cameras. The towers are surrounded by a spiked fence that stands about 1½ metres high.
"You don't get in there unless you know somebody," said Robert DUFAULT, who has lived in the Riviera for 15 years.
Staff Sgt. PERRAS said the three bodies were sent to Toronto for autopsies.
"At this point, we have no additional information in regards to the triple homicide. We have no suspects," she said.
"The major crimes investigators have no information as to the motive of the crime."
However, police hoped that the building's security cameras captured information. "If there are such tapes, they will be seized to help in this investigation," Staff Sgt. PERRAS said.
Mr. GARON became a judge in 1988 and retired in November, 2004, after spending four years at the helm of the Tax Court, which enforces the Income Tax Act among other laws.
Before that, he taught at the University of Ottawa law school part time and worked at Justice Canada, where he rose to the rank of associate deputy minister in the 1980s.
"He was mentally agile and physically fit," Federal Court of Appeal Judge J. Edgar SEXTON told an Ottawa newspaper.
"He told me he was playing golf and enjoying his retirement."
A police officer was stationed all weekend at the Riviera's entrance, checking identification of drivers entering the grounds.
Police took over a condo unit in the building to conduct its investigation. Police officers were also active outside the condo yesterday, at one point supervising a tow truck removing a car from the parking lot.
Staff Sgt. PERRAS said police were working with few details and asked anyone with information to come forward.

While in Shawinigan, he met his beloved Tommy in nearby Trois Rivieres. They were married in 1952 and eventually settled in Beaconsfield, Québec, where they formed many lifelong Friendships. In 1971, intrigued at the potential of the oil sands and the prospect of taking his career in a new direction, Tom moved the family to Fort McMurray, where he managed engineering and maintenance for Great Canadian Oil Sands, now a division of Suncor. This was followed by a move to Edmonton in 1973 to handle the assembly and marketing of Great Canadian Oil Sands's oil sands technology. In 1976, he moved to Calgary to join recently formed Petro-Canada, serving on the Syncrude Management Committee and on the Alsands Executive Committee, managing the Canstar Oil Sands Project, and finally before retirement in 1985, serving as Vice-President, Heavy Oil.
