Chapter Three: The Preventable Crime


From: Murder in Renfrew County


This chapter follows the murders of Arlene May, Theresa Davies, and Gillian Hadley in the Renfrew County Area and the two separate inquests that followed their deaths 17 and 13 years before the violent murders on September 22 2015. Each inquest produced dozens of recommendations on how to protect victims of intimate partner violence many of which were never implemented. This chapter also discusses the creation of the Domestic Violence Death Review Committee.
