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.
