Body found in parking lot
34-year-old Owen Sound man charged with manslaughter
By Jonathon JACKSON with files from Michael DEN TANDT and Bill HENRY, Page A1
An Owen Sound man has been charged with manslaughter after the death of an Owen Sound businessman died after what police believe may have been an "altercation" Monday night.
James MORELLI, 34, has been remanded in custody pending a bail hearing today. He was charged after William "Larry" HILSDEN was found unconsciious in a downtown parking lot Monday night.
Two people were originally taken into custody Tuesday, but one was later released.
Chief Tom KAYE of the Owen Sound Police Services said earlier Tuesday, before any charges had been laid, that police were " investigating it as though there were foul play involved, but to what extent that is, we don't know."
Yellow crime scene tape cordoned off a large section of the municipal parking lot behind the Golden Sand restaurant, formerly the Ritz Cafe, on Tuesday.
Const. Chantelle BEIRNES of the Mount Forest-based Ontario Provincial Police Forensic Identification Unit and acting Capt. Greg SCOTT of Owen Sound Fire and Emergency Services filmed the lot from an aerial fire truck.
James MORTON lives in an apartment above the restaurant. He said in an interview he was returning from a walk Monday night when he saw two men in the parking lot. One was lying on the ground next to the open driver's door of a truck, his legs under the vehicle.
"I thought the other guy had beat him up or something," MORTON said, "but he said, 'I found him like this and I can't get a pulse.' I tried and I couldn't get one either."
MORTON said the first man called 911. Emergency services worked on the unconscious man for some time before moving him to the Owen Sound hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
The cause of death was not released by police and hospital staff declined to provide that information. Police said in a news release Tuesday night an autopsy will be performed in London on Thursday.
Darlene NELSON, a server at the Golden Sand restaurant, said HILSDEN was a regular customer at the restaurant, eating there between five and seven days a week.
"He was my landlord for six years and I love him dearly," NELSON said.
She said HILSDEN, 61, ate a late meal Monday and left through the rear entrance at about 10 p.m. According to a news release from the city police, he was found unconscious approximately 30 minutes later in the parking lot.
Few other details have been released but acting Staff Sgt. Vince WURFEL said in the news release police would like to speak to anyone who "may have witnessed an altercation in the municipal parking lot in the 900 block of 3rd Avenue East."
People are asked to call the police at 519-376-1234 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
HILSDEN owned a number of residential properties and businesses in and near Owen Sound over the years. They included a restaurant along the East Bayshore Road, a downtown home electronics store called Hilsden Sight and Sound and the Ted and Grace's snack bar at the corner of 2nd Avenue and 14th Street West. He was in the process of rebuilding Ted and Grace's after a 2004 fire gutted the landmark.
"He was always a good employer to work for," said Jamie JOHNSTON, who worked for several years at Hilsden Sight and Sound. "He always treated us good… even when times were tough, he always made sure I got paid."
HILSDEN's brother, Ronald HILSDEN, said Tuesday the family did not wish to comment.
