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.

HARTLEY, Strachan, B.Sc., M.Sc., M.D.
After a courageous 21 months, Strachan lost his battle against Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma July 5th, 2007 at the Royal Victoria Hospital in Montreal. Prior to his illness, he experienced short but unfettered joy as an M.D. pursuing his orthopedic surgery residency at McGill. Strachan is survived by his devoted wife Doctor Chloe ROUMAIN, proud parents Mary Ann and Michael, and loving siblings Aimee-Noel, Wyatt and Blythe. Sharing their daughter's loss are parents-in-law Pierre YVES and Françoise ROUMAIN of Haiti and sister Stephanie READ and family in Miami. While his Uncle Peter HARTLEY, Aunt Catherine LOUVET and cousins Camille and Lauren feel a particularly strong loss as they acted as his surrogate family during his 7.5 years in Montreal, their grief is shared equally with his Uncles and Aunts Ian and Mary-Louise and Susan HARTLEY, Glenn and Margaret MUNRO, Jim MUNRO and Margaret DRAGU and cousins Megan, Brian, Scott, Kim, Josh and Aretha. He was predeceased by his grandparents Herb and Simone HARTLEY and Ralph and Isabelle MUNRO of Toronto. During his 30 years, Strachan left a powerful legacy of Friendship, sport and scholarship in Edmonton, Vancouver and Montreal. His captaincy of the 1997 Vanier Cup Champion University of British Columbia Thunderbirds football team and subsequently of the McGill Redmen football team are testament to his leadership and commitment to others.

But most of all, Strachan will be remembered for his warm sense of humor, compassion and integrity. All who knew him cannot wonder what might have been. Why, when he had so much to give, was he taken from us? Sleep in peace wonderful Prince. We will carry you always in our hearts. The family wishes to acknowledge all the amazing Friends and community members who supported Strachan during his life and illness. Your overwhelming caring and compassion touched him and the family deeply and helped soothe his burden.
