Man charged with murder in brother's death
Police release few details about 18-year-old's death
By Doug EDGAR, Thursday, August 02, 2007
One brother is dead and another is charged with his murder after Ontario Provincial Police officers were called to a home in the former Kincardine Township Tuesday night.
John Robert FORRESTER, 18, is dead and Asa John FORRESTER, 22, is charged with second degree murder, South Bruce Ontario Provincial Police said in a news release Wednesday.
Officers from the detachment and Bruce County paramedics were called to the FORRESTER home on Concession Road 5 of the former Kincardine Township, Const. Jeff MERCEY said Wednesday afternoon.
"It came through dispatch in London as a call for assistance just prior to midnight," he said.
They found John FORRESTER "with critical injuries," MERCEY said in a news release.
The teen was immediately taken to hospital in Kincardine, where he died of his injuries.
MERCEY said he could not comment on the nature of the younger FORRESTER's injuries, since the information could be evidence, nor could he comment on what happened before police were called.
"We're still investigating that," he said. "There isn't a lot of information we can release."
John FORRESTER attended Kincardine District Secondary School, where he took part in athletics including track and field and hockey.
"He had just successfully graduated in June," Kincardine District Secondary School principal Dan HOBLER said Wednesday evening.
The school cafeteria was to open at 9 a.m. today for students or others who might want help dealing with FORRESTER's death. The school board's tragic response team was to be there.
"We don't know much detail," HOBLER said. "We just want to be there for anyone who needs it."
The news came as a shock, said Tanya BYERS, who coached John FORRESTER in Grade 9, when he reached the Ontario Federation of School Athletic Associations regionals in midget hurdles, and again this spring, when he trained in shot put and discus.
While they were not close, BYERS said FORRESTER had said he wanted to be a helicopter pilot.
"He was a pleasure to coach," she said. "He was a very likeable guy.Asa" John FORRESTER was to make a court appearance in Walkerton Wednesday afternoon and would likely be back in court today, MERCEY said.
The investigation is being directed by Det.-Insp. Bill RENTON of the Ontario Provincial Police's criminal investigation branch, with help from South Bruce detachment officers. An Ontario Provincial Police forensic identification unit based in Mount Forest has also been called in.
"We still have police at the scene," MERCEY said late Wednesday afternoon.
The last homicide investigation in the Kincardine detachment area was in 1994, he said.
John FORRESTER was a student at Kincardine District Secondary school, where he competed in track and field events.
