This Week in Policing – Thursday, April 9, 2009

This weeks post is coming a day early due to the holiday weekend. 

For most of this past week, the attention has been on the tragic loss of 53 year old Wendy Ladner-Beaudry.  My most heartfelt condolences go to the family and loved ones of Ladner-Beaudry, who was found dead in Pacific Spirit Park last Friday afternoon after she was killed while jogging on a trail.  Ladner-Beaudry leaves behind a grieving husband and two daughters, as well as a legacy of good will and volunteer work.  What a loss.

What really strikes me about this case is that it happened to a woman who, by all appearances, was alert, aware of her surrounding and very fit.  I think the basis of this woman’s death makes everyone uneasy, as there are so many questions surrounding the ‘who and why’.  I know I’ve thought twice about going for a run since last Friday, and I always run with my four-legged partner. 

There’s not much else I can say.  Again, my thoughts are with Ladner-Beaudry’s family and all those who knew and loved her.
