Police ask for help on a murder file

The body of Frederick “John” Hatch was found near the Town of Erin last December, but the OPP think that maybe someone in the Ottawa or Five Counties regions may have information that could help close the case.

He was carrying a red duffel bag. The provincial government authorized a $50,000 reward on June 2, this year, for in- formation to help solve themurder. Anyone with information, or who may have seen Hatch somewhere between Ottawa and Erin during the time from the afternoon of De- cember 16 to the evening of Dec. 17, 2015, can call the OPP toll-free at 1-888-310-1122 or the CrimeStoppers toll-free confidential tips line at 1-800-222-8477. Det-Insp. Andy Raffay of the OPP Criminal Investigation Branch is the lead officer for the case.

Tagged for car theft

It wasn’t just the vehicle they were driv- ing around in. The licence plate was also stolen. Five youths face several charges after leading police on a chase, onMonday of the long August weekend. The Hawkes- bury OPP detachment received a call on Aug. 1 st , from a patrol officer, about a possible stolen vehicle which also had a set of stolen licence plates. Const. Stéphanie Fortin-Provost first noticed the erratic driving pattern of the suspect vehicle, which suggested that the driver might be impaired. When she turned on her patrol car’s flashing roof lights, the vehicle sped off, clocking speeds up to 130 km/h in a posted 80 km/h zone. Police broke off pursuit under the cir- cumstances as the suspect vehicle’s speed

and driving pattern created a risk for any passengers inside and also a public safety hazard for anyone else encountering it on the road. Later that night, the vehicle was spotted turning on to a dead-end street. The five occupants, all youths ranging in age from 14 to 17, abandoned the ve- hicle and fled on foot. They were caught later on, still in the vicinity, and charged. Their names are withheld under the terms of the Youth Criminal Justice Act. They all face charges of possession of stolen property, under a value of $5000. Two are also charged with failure to com- ply with previous release conditions. One is also charged with attempting to es- cape police pursuit and with dangerous driving. They are scheduled to attend provincial youth court in L’Orignal, later in August.

Who you gonna call? 211! There’s a new number in town and United Way of Prescott Russell’s executive director, Jodie Densmore, really wants the community to remember. By calling 211, citizens will get to talk to a real person that can direct them towards the right organizations or people, to help them deal with whatever situation they are in. Vulnerable people in our community now have allies that are just a phone call away. Also, 211 can act as a crisis hotline, meaning that in the event of a catastrophe or tragedy, citizens can call that number to report or get information on the situation at hand. In other words, if someone is trying to break into someone’s house, they need to call 911, but if they feel alone, deprived or vulnerable, they can call 211. Help is just a phone call away. – Maxime Myre
