Murder in Renfrew County

The predator who left three women dead — and the justice system that failed to stop him

by Dean Beeby

The murder of three women in Ontario’s Renfrew County, and the inquest into violence against women that followed.

The story of the murder of three women in Ontario’s Renfrew county by their ex-partner and the full-scale investigation that followed.

Dean Beeby, a skilled reporter and author, chronicles the day of violence, exploring the circumstances that led up to three tragic confrontations. Their deaths triggered an inquiry that addressed the larger issues of femicide and the systems that fail victims of intimate partner violence.

Describing the months-long inquest that followed and its findings, Dean Beeby explores how the justice system does not adequately address the needs of victims and how perpetrators of intimate partner violence are given ample opportunity to re-offend and escalate their actions.
