Convicted wife-killer BUXBAUM dies in jail
By Joe BELANGER, Sun Media, Sat., November 3, 2007
Helmuth BUXBAUM, a church-going, millionaire nursing home operator whose double life of sex and drugs imploded with the contract killing of his wife, has died.
Focus of one of Canada's most sensational murder trials in the mid-1980s, he died in prison at age 67.
An official at Warkworth Institution near Peterborough said BUXBAUM died Thursday after being transferred to Kingston Penitentiary Regional hospital because of unspecified health concerns.
Free Press reporter Chip MARTIN, who covered BUXBAUM's trial that ended with a life sentence for the murder of his wife, Hanna, said he was struck by BUXBAUM's double life. "On the one hand, he was a very good family man, a very good businessman and, on the surface, a very religious man and a leader in his faith community," said MARTIN.
"That he had a dark side to his personality -- that he could hang around a bunch of low-lifes and let them exploit him for money in exchange for drugs and sex -- was a real revelation," said MARTIN, author of Buxbaum: A Murderous Affair.
During the trial, BUXBAUM, who had built a Komoka-based nursing home empire from scratch, was described as a cocaine addict who preferred the company of young prostitutes and was desperate to do away with his wife, whom he found dull and unattractive.
MARTIN offered another description of Hanna.
"His wife was a wonderful woman and mother who stood up to him and paid the price with her life."
BUXBAUM reportedly sold the business before his conviction for $23 million.
The Crown's case centred on money, saying nearly $2 million had disappeared from BUXBAUM's bank account and that he had recently taken out a $1-million life insurance policy on his wife.
Hanna BUXBAUM, 48, was shot in the head by a gunman at the side of a highway in July 1984 while a nephew, Roy BUXBAUM, sat in the car.
They had stopped, supposedly to help people having car troubles.
It was later learned BUXBAUM planned the killing earlier in the day, but it was foiled when a police cruiser pulled up after the cars had stopped on Highway 402.
They left and drove to Pearson International Airport to pick up a nephew. The shooting was staged when they returned later that day.
BUXBAUM denied he hired a drug dealer as the hit man.
But at trial, drug dealer Rob BARRETT testified BUXBAUM offered $25,000 plus expenses and a house for someone to kill his wife.
BARRETT said he offered the contract to Pat ALLEN, another London-area drug dealer. ALLEN, sentenced to eight years, testified he agreed to perform the killing, but backed out and let Gary FOSHAY take over.
FOSHAY was convicted of second-degree murder and sentenced to life in prison with no chance of parole for 25 years.
In a later appeal, rejected by the Ontario Court of Appeal, the defence argued BUXBAUM was insane at the time of the killing because of a stroke suffered two years earlier.
The nephew, Roy, who later sued BUXBAUM, could not be reached for comment.
Despite being behind prison walls, BUXBAUM never quite faded from the limelight, his name regularly resurfacing in the media as recently as January 2005 in a documentary about his lawyer, Eddie GREENSPAN, and in June 2000, when a reporter wrote about BUXBAUM advocating for the rights of seniors in prison.
In that story, BUXBAUM said he still dreamt about reconciliation with his six children and his grandchildren, but knew it wouldn't be easy.
"After so many years, it's like I don't exist," he said. "I'm an inconvenience. They've built their own lives and their own careers. They don't need me."
In the article, BUXBAUM complained about life in prison, especially for seniors.
"There is no mercy in Canada," BUXBAUM said.
"We've lost our mercy, and these old people must die a lonely death in prison."

Gunfire outbreak yields six casualties in 10 days
By Tim SHUFELT, Page A9
The shooting of Munit WALIA on Monday in the city's west end capped off a 10-day outbreak of fatal gunfire, pushing the number of gun-related homicides to levels not seen since the so-called "year of the gun" in 2005.
Police found Mr. WALIA, 27, around 9 p.m. in his car suffering from multiple gunshot wounds in the Martingrove Road and Finch Avenue West area. He was taken to Saint Michael's Hospital where he was pronounced dead. Police are now investigating whether he uttered the names of his attackers in the voice mail message he was leaving his pregnant girlfriend moments before he was shot.
Nobody has yet been charged in the death of Mr. WALIA, as is the case in four of the six shooting fatalities in the last 10 days.
The killing of Kimel FOSTER, 21, outside the Town Talk Restaurant and Bar near Vaughan Road and Oakwood Avenue, kicked off a bloody weekend in the early morning hours of July 21. Mr. FOSTER died from multiple gunshot wounds to the chest and abdomen, while a second victim survived.
The next morning, 11-year-old Ephraim BROWN died from a bullet to the neck, followed by the separate shootings of Shawn JAMES and Amin AAFI. First-degree murder charges were laid against two people last week in the death of Mr. JAMES, 31, who police say was killed by shots fired from the window of a Beck taxicab near Wellesley and Sherbourne Streets. Police are still searching for a third suspect.
Mr. AAFI, 24, arrived at hospital after shots rang out in Flirt Lounge in the nightclub district. He died from a single gunshot wound, while a second man was treated at hospital for a shot to the leg.
The next casualty was 25-year-old Michael GEORGE, described as a well-liked aspiring rapper, who was targeted as he exited his car in the Meadowvale Road and Finch Avenue West area on Sunday. Mr. GEORGE was not known to police.
In addition to the arrests stemming from the death of Mr. JAMES, police have also charged two people with first-degree murder in the Ephraim BROWN case. The other homicides are under investigation and police are searching for suspects.
