    Police give up search for missing nuclear scientist

    Cranswick's family declined to comment when contacted in Australia by the Star, but said the scientist's brother had been in Canada for over a week looking for him.


    Well, I am glad his brother is here . The police statement was not very tactful.

    An expert in x-ray crystallography computing could be a useful resource in locating sources of radiation. Failing that, perhaps the military could make use of this book:

    Now, a month after he was last seen, police say they have done everything they can to find him, but they still have no idea where he is.

    “We're at the end of all the possible information we have received,” said Const. Darin Faris, the Deep River Police officer leading the investigation. “There has been no information from the public that has helped.”

    Very strange, isn't it? I hope they come to WS. Seems like their conclusions are somewhat superficial.

    It seems kind of odd to me that this case has been left in the hands of the local police. No OPP? No RCMP? Due to the nature of LC's work, I'd expect his disappearance to be a higher priority.

    I don't expect that a local police department would have the time, manpower or expertise to do a forensic computer analysis on LC's home computer and the one at the office. I expect the one at the office is high security and they'd be denied access.

    It's a very sad state of affairs when a scientist of this caliber goes missing and the local police handle the case. Surely a higher power is investigating this and are just keeping it to themselves? Very sad case, he seems like a very interesting man.

    Perhaps we should be sending them some of the links we have found, although I suspect LE does check in here at WS.

    Police dismissed any connection to the case of Col. Russell Williams, the CFB Trenton commander charged with murder. Although he grew up in the area and both his father and stepfather worked at the same nuclear facility as Cranswick, Faris said Cranswick, a middle-aged man, doesn't fit the profile of Williams' alleged victims, both younger women.

    If Cranswick had been murdered or accidentally killed, Faris said there would be some physical evidence left behind. Police have found none.
    Have they been reading WS or did they also think there could have been a connection. It might not fit Williams' alleged victims, but the disappearing in the middle of the night, leaving everything behind, car in driveway, etc, sure fits IMHO.

    CFB Petawawa is 16 miles from Deep River

    Did you notice this from the Toronto Star article quoted above:

    "'I spent my career doing things right and avoiding things that were wrong. But here, I canít figure out what went wrong,' Sovka told the Globe and Mail in an interview from France, where he is now project manager for ITER, a $14.3 billion nuclear fusion project."

    And how about this:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ITER

    http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/...rticle1462408/
    Just wanted to point out that there is a CFB very close to Deep River. Sometimes soldiers rent accomodation and reside in Deep River even though they are based in Petawawa. Could RW have been in Petawawa on business and then decide to take a midnight drive to Deep River (to go down memory lane to his childhood home) and kill a scientist while he was at it???

    Do they really know the full scope of R.W.'s MO,?Who truly does ,considering the amount of time he was completely under the radar,advancing in his career like an unstoppable rocket ?Just ' cause he admitted to the alleged crimes( caught !)does not mean that he is now a forthright man who's MO(and sexuality) is completely revealed and understood.

    Another commonality: it was a weeknight. As we know, RW's wife spent weekends at the cottage in Tweed, or he went to their home in Ottawa.

    And another: gone without a trace, no evidence left at the scene. But we all know what Snowball says about that, right? "Look for cat hair. Each cat's DNA is unique." Thank you, Snowball.

    I am a firm believer that a serial killer can have more than one MO and more than one type of victim. MO depends on the circumstances. Circumstances change. Selecting a victim depends on the perp's motivation. Anger at nuclear scientists could be a motivation.

    Earlier on in this thread, a WSer posted a map showing Petawawa and Deep River. I posted some info about Petawawa, and its relationship to Joint Task Force 2. JTF-2, the military's anti-terrorist unit, has been redomiciled to CFB Trenton. It is interesting to note that the Airborne Regiment, whose reprehensible conduct in Somalia resulted in the regiment's disbandment, was based at Petawawa. It was reorganized, names changed, and some of the operations left at CFB Petawawa. Chief of Defence Rick Hillier later promoted the man in charge of that fiasco, and gave him a retroactive raise of $148,000, all of which gives the impression that the man and his unit had done nothing wrong in the eyes of the military's head honcho. Among their many transgressions, they took trophy photos of those they abused.

    ETA: Some information is overlapping with another case.

    Don't understand why The Star article (dated Jan. 19, 2010) has been re-written. Different title, but contents are the same, except for a few paragraphs that have been deleted. Also deleted are the direct links to:
    - Chalk River Chalk River
    - Deep River (Google map)
    - Neutro Beam Centre Neutron Beam Centre


    Original article Published On Fri Feb 19 2010
    Police give up search for missing nuclear scientist
    Vanished without a trace


    New article Published On Sat Feb 20 2010
    Scientist vanishes without trace


    Here are the small change and paragraphs that have been deleted:

    - Chalk River nuclear reactor to Chalk River nuclear facility
    - Deleted in Quebec:
    Police checked across the Ottawa River, in Quebec and searched all the nearby hospitals to
    Police checked across the Ottawa River, and searched nearby hospitals.

    Police dismissed any connection to the case of Col. Russell Williams, the CFB Trenton commander charged with murder. Although he grew up in the area and both his father and stepfather worked at the same nuclear facility as Cranswick, Faris said Cranswick, a middle-aged man, doesn't fit the profile of Williams' alleged victims, both younger women.
    He described Cranswick as a quiet man, but said he enjoyed social events like curling and boating on the river.

    “His brother ... described him as a ‘stereotypical geek.’ He was smart, he liked computers, he spent lots of time on the Internet,” he said.

    Cranswick himself maintained an extensive personal website, packed with journal entries, his family geneology and his own photographs.

    “We certainly all hope that he comes back,” Banks said. “A lot of our people are single-area experts, and without him, it will be a blow to us.”
    With trails searched, neighbours canvassed and every lead run down, the investigation has stalled.

    “There's not much we can do, unless someone gives us something or we find something new,” Lachlan Cranswick Faris said.

    If most people in Deep River share the same sentiment as the poster on this CBC article comment secion, then most people are probably just waiting for spring to arrive

    I think TOS doesn't allow to copy Comments from other sites, so will just post the CBC article, look for last comment (#57) by bornlucky wrote:Posted 2010/02/07 at 9:36 PM ET

    The guy's a nuclear scientist. Earth to Canada - come in please - reality check.

    http://toronto.en.craigslist.ca/tor/rnr/1593696147.html

    I just read the comment , if that did happen it is unfortunate. However, if it didn't not much is happening in the news. Did you see this article, this guy is not too happy with us. Apparently his brother has arrived to look into him missing.Lachian Cranswick is a very intelligent man, from everything I have read. Such a shame really.
