Family of slain Gatineau filmmaker devastated by not guilty verdict

  Family of slain Gatineau filmmaker devastated by not guilty verdict The family of a Gatineau, Que., filmmaker killed in Belize say they're devastated to learn the two men accused in his homicide have been found not guilty. Matthiew Klinck was found stabbed to death in January 2016 outside a home where he'd been staying in the village of Selena, in the western part of the Central American country. At the time, police told CBC News Klinck's home "appeared ransacked." Justice Antoinette Moore found the two suspects not guilty on Nov. 27, citing lack of evidence.'No justice'"There's no justice there," Klinck's mother, Louise Dallaire, told Radio-Canada in French.

The student was arrested Monday at the school after the Douglas County Sheriff's office received a tip that she had a weapon in her vehicle. She is facing charges of possessing a firearm on school grounds, juvenile in possession of a hand gun and possession of drug paraphernalia.

According to police, the teens were overheard discussing bringing guns to school and how they were too smart to get caught. Deputies investigated and said they learned one of the teens had access to numerous firearms and had made posts on social media that were a cause for concern.

“When we think about the timing of everything, (lockdown) wasn’t needed. Two school administrators immediately went out to see if the white car was there. Determining it was not, they came back into the school and had a quick discussion. By then, police had arrived.”

Like Windsor police, Pyke praised the students and staff of Vincent Massey Secondary School for their decisive action. “It was truly amazing. We have a protocol, and it was done to the T … There wasn’t a need, at that point, for any kind of further disruption to the school.”

However, Pyke agreed that “this was a concerning situation, no doubt about it,” and illegal firearms are an issue for all of Windsor — not just school communities.

“Our schools are safe,” Pyke emphasized. “We have a lot of protocols and a lot of training. We work super well with our law enforcement and other organizations. What was good (in this incident) is that our students saw it and reported it directly. That was a huge positive.”

Regarding the substance one of the suspects was found to be carrying, Pyke said she has no information about Xanax being abused by students — indeed, she wasn’t aware until now that it can be used as an illicit recreational drug.

“To be honest … that took me aback,” Pyke said. “It’s not something typical I’d hear.”
