VICARY o@ca.on.middlesex_county.london.london_free_press 2007-12-26 published
Widow found slain
Her son is charged with murder in the death in the complex in Westmount.
By Katherina DEHAAS, Patrick MALONEY and Daniela SIMUNAC, Sun Media, Wed., December 26, 2007
Cranbrook Trace is a caring little community, a clutch of high-end London condos where residents greet their neighbours by name and keep an eye out for one another.
Some in the Westmount complex would dutifully check in on Helen VICARY, calling every few days to say hello and see how the kind, elderly widow was getting along.
Then, a few weeks ago, she stopped answering the phone.
She was no longer seen picking up her mail, either.
Now, a 48-year-old man, identified by neighbours as VICARY's son, is charged with second-degree murder in the death of a woman whose body was found at his mother's home on Christmas Eve.
Police haven't publicly identified the woman.
"We did notice that we hadn't seen (VICARY) in awhile," Eric JOHNSON, who lives a few doors away, said yesterday. "In the last month, we hadn't seen her at all."
Monday, London police swooped down on the VICARY home, unit 23 at 505 Cranbrook Rd., while searching for someone reported missing that morning.
A woman was found dead inside.
That night, neighbours say police went door-to-door asking about Helen VICARY.
Craig James VICARY, 48, whom, neighbours identified as Helen's son, is charged with second-degree murder. He had been living at the condo, police said yesterday.
With investigators still scouring the home for evidence, neighbours who would be otherwise occupied with the holiday were shaking their heads over the city's sixth homicide of the year.
"Obviously, we're all shocked by it," said one man. "It's really not hit home yet. We really haven't had a whole lot of time to reflect on it."
One neighbour said VICARY moved into the condo about three years ago but had lived alone since her husband died Christmas Day two years ago. Her grown children live in the area.
Investigators were first called to the condo Monday after a report of a missing person. Police haven't said who notified them of the disappearance.
Police then searched for a brown, four-door Pontiac Grand Am, which was registered to Helen VICARY.
JOHNSON, who described the elderly VICARY as kind and friendly, said the homicide is "unnerving… a close community. A lot of elderly people and we watch out for each other."
The Christmas Eve discovery marked the third serious incident in London this month. Early December 8, 24-year-old Anthony BRUN was found injured outside an Old South home and later died in hospital. Gordon Tyler McCURDY, 33, is charged with second-degree murder. Later that day, teacher Ed DICKSON/DIXON was seriously hurt in a south-end parking lot shooting. Angela SEDORE, who taught with DICKSON/DIXON, was killed in a murder-suicide, apparently at the hands of Ray KOVACS, whose body was found in her sport utility vehicle after a police chase.

VICHERT, Gordon Stewart (1934-2007)
Gordon VICHERT was born to missionary parents, Clarence VICHERT and Constance WELCH, in Ibin, West China, and was raised in Ya-an speaking Mandarin and English. In the nineteen thirties, this remote part of China was frontier country: before the age of one, Gordon had survived a riverboat sinking and a bandit attack that killed his nurse as he lay in her arms. His schooling was handled by his parents until he returned from China to attend King Edward High School in Vancouver and Lewis and Clark High School in Spokane, Washington, where he received both the Bausch and Lomb Science Award and the Good Citizenship Award for his thorough knowledge of the U.S. constitution. As editor of the school newspaper, Gordon interviewed Senator Joe McCarthy who, he felt, was embarrassed by questions much more challenging than expected. The subsequent article in the school paper led to calls to have Gordon expelled.
After high school, Gordon worked in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Despite the offer of a scholarship to Reed University, he chose to attend McMaster in Hamilton, the university of many of his forebears, and where his great uncle, Harold Stanley STEWARD/STEWART/STUART, was Dean of Theology. At McMaster, he proceeded to a degree in Honours English, winning a number of prizes and medals, including the Alexander Scholarship. During several summers, Gordon taught English and worked as a labourer for Frontier College at Niagara, Wawa, and Kitimat, British Columbia. Winning an Honour "M" for editing the student newspaper, debating and other activities, he graduated with high honours from McMaster in 1957.
He completed his M.A. at Saint Michaels College at the University of Toronto before he and his wife, Nancy NABLO, traveled to Enugu, Nigeria, where he taught English Literature for 2 years at the Nigerian College of Arts, Science, and Technology and where their daughter Nicola Constance was born.
A second daughter, Rebecca Suzanne, was born during a short period teaching at McMaster, before Gordon completed his Ph.D. at Birkbeck College, University of London, England on a Commonwealth Scholarship. Research for his Ph.D at the British Museum included certain ancient volumes which could be viewed only under the supervision of the Archbishop of Canterbury.
Returning to Ontario, he became a member of the McMaster Faculty of English for several years and loved hiking on the Bruce Trail with Nicola, Rebecca, and young son Marcus Gregory.
Gordon left academic life to become both a candidate and an administrator for the Ontario New Democratic Party, first in Hamilton and later in Toronto, holding the positions of General Secretary and Ontario President. As a candidate for the New Democratic Party in the riding of Hamilton-Wentworth, Gordon was among the first in the long fight to clean up pollution in Hamilton and preserve Coot's Paradise and other wilderness areas. Gordon enjoyed telling the story of giving an impassioned anti-pollution speech at an all-candidates meeting; after what he thought was an especially well-reasoned plea for new environmental policies, he turned the microphone over to one of his opponents, the front runner in the election, who cleared his throat and intoned gravely, "I too, am for pollution."
Gordon and his second wife, Janice McARTHUR, moved to Saskatchewan where he worked with Premier Allan Blakeney as a special assistant and speech writer, and where he organized the Cultural Policy Secretariat. A son, Keir John, was born in Regina.
Seconded to Roy Romanow in November of 1981, Gordon was among the advisors assisting in the "Kitchen Accord" which many believe helped enshrine the Charter of Rights and Freedoms in the Constitution.
Those who encountered Gordon in the political world knew his principles, historical expertise, and passion for debate made him a great ally and formidable opponent.
In Saskatchewan, as he was enjoying a new career and new family, Gordon was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease. Relocating to West China, he taught English for two years in Xining, near his boyhood home, and where virtually no Westerners had been seen since before the Cultural Revolution. When he passed through his childhood town, local people could be heard calling his father's name. During this period, Gordon and Janice's daughter Hilary Jane (Ning Ning) was born, within view of the Tibetan Himalayas.
Gordon and his family settled in Vancouver, British Columbia where he lectured in English Literature for the University of British Columbia and the Open Learning University as much as his health would allow. For a two-year term, he was appointed by the British Columbia Lieutenant Governor to the Medical and Health Care Services Appeal Board.
It was Gordon's belief that higher education should be available to anyone who wanted it, not just those who could afford it. He particularly enjoyed his work at Frontier College and at the Open Learning University. Doctor VICHERT will be remembered by his students as a vibrant and accomplished lecturer whose particular interest was Eighteenth Century Satire.
Eldest of three boys, Gordon was brother to Bruce and to Alan, both of British Columbia.
Gordon's Friends and family are grateful that he so easily shared his love of conversation, travel, political observation, literature, hiking and film. Everyone who knew him continues to benefit from this generosity.
Donations in Gordon's memory to the Pacific Parkinson's Research Centre or the Bruce Trail Society are gratefully requested in lieu of flowers.
Please write to gordonvichertmemorial@gmail.com for information about a memorial service to be held in early 2008.
