    Canada - Glenn Kivell, 46, & Marion Bagshaw, 35, Queensville, Ont, 18 June 1960

    Double murder on 18 June 1960 of Marion Bagshaw age 35 and boyfriend Glenn Harris Kivell age 46.

    5th Concession, Queesnville, Ontario - home owned by Marion Bagshaw for two years prior.

    Glenn Kivell had rented a room on the farm next Marion's home for 21 months leading up to murder. He was separated from his wife and two children who lived in Willowdale, Ontario (suburb of Toronto).

    Both victims were shot in the kitchen by someone LE thinks had been admitted to the home. .303 rifle is thought to be the weapon used - it was never found. Marion was found sitting in a chair, her legs still crossed. Glenn was on the floor at her feet. They had been drinking a beer and making a meal.

    See Toronto Star archives - 21 June 1960 (page 1, 2 and 17), 22 June (page 1 and 2), 23 June page 8.

    Marion Bagshaw was born on her parents 200 acre farm on the 4th Concession, Sunderland in 1921. Also referred to as Pinedale. Pinedale consists of the corner of 4th Concession and Sideroad 18 in Brock Township - stretching a short distance in all directions. Brock Township is made up of many small towns - Sunderland, Pinedale among them. At the time of Marion's murder, her brother still lived on the farm.

    See Toronto Star archives 21 June 1960 page 2.


    The 4th Concession of Sunderland is also the location where murder victim Christine Marion Jessop, age 9 was found on 31 Dec 1984. Christine lived in Queensville at the time of her abduction and murder.

    Unusual coincidence, wonder if MB had any connection to CJ's birth family?

    That's very difficult to say dotr - it's not an area one can 'travel' through history on Ancestry etc. Far to recent.

    The York Regional Police now have the Marion Bagshaw & Glenn Kivell story on their cold case website. It's such an old case but someone out there may just have a clue no matter how insignificant they may consider it.

    Interesting that one of the photos and caption shows/states that MB was shot through a window - not reported earlier. Earlier reports say she was shot by someone standing in the home at the kitchen door and was likely invited into the home.

    Unfortunately this case is still unsolved. There are family members who would like closure but sadly it may be that too many years have passed. There is always a chance that someone knows something even though it's highly likely that the killer is dead.
