    "Forensic investigators from the Ontario Provincial Police spent hours Thursday combing through the Ottawa home of an air force colonel charged in the murders of two women and the sexual assaults of two others.

    Six plainclothes officers carrying boxes arrived at the semi-detached house shared by Col. Russell Williams and his wife shortly after noon.

    They papered over windows at the home in Ottawa's tony Westboro neighbourhood. The couple's BMW remained parked in the driveway.

    Williams, the former commander of Canada's largest military airfield, Canadian Forces Base Trenton, was arrested Sunday in Ottawa. The body of one of the victims, Jessica Lloyd, was found Monday.

    Williams, 46, of Tweed, Ont., was charged with first-degree murder in the deaths of Lloyd, 27, and Cpl. Marie-France Comeau, 37.

    Comeau was based Trenton and served as a steward aboard the same military VIP flights Williams piloted for much of the 1990s, ferrying the Governor General, the prime minister and other dignitaries on domestic and overseas trips.

    Williams is also charged with two sexual assaults in the same Tweed neighbourhood where he and wife Mary Elizabeth Harriman had a cottage. Tweed is near CFB Trenton.

    Harriman is the associate executive director of the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada and was living in the couple's recently built Ottawa home.

    According to a search warrant issued before Williams emerged as the primary suspect in the cases, detectives entered the home of a prior suspect looking for lingerie, baby blankets and computer data storage devices.

    The warrant was related to attacks on two women who were bound and sexually assaulted in their homes last September. Both women lived within walking distance of the Williams cottage.

    Besides two first-degree murder charges, Williams faces two counts of forcible confinement and two counts of break and enter and sexual assault relating to the attacks. His cottage was cordoned off by police tape and an OPP trailer was parked outside earlier this week.

    Williams reportedly came to the attention of investigators at a roadside checkpoint last week when his SUV's unusual tires were linked to treadmarks at one of the crime scenes.

    Police are also looking into Williams' past postings to see if there are any links to similar cold-case files elsewhere. ..."

    Well, you know, people like to say nasty things about the US and Americans. It is kind of lke balancing the books once in a while and bringing some people/countries down off their high horses.

    Americans dont know enough about other people's news, so they cant defend themselves.

    Bet your old neighborhood is so glad to be rid of you.

    lol..Put...the...ambien..down...Caslon....

    But you're quite right. The US and Canada both have problems with criminals, like the ones that went after us. Seems you'd like to be friends with them, though, the way you usually paint them as the victims. Say, perhaps we can arrange a date for you via Corrections Canada with that commander next time you're up. icon_lol.gif
