  • Notes 
    • He was arrested in Jun 1969 of attempted murder of his younger brother, David. He kept police at bay outside his home at Langley, BC for nearly 5 hours when the police were finally able to enter the house and capture him using teargas.

      He was found not guilty by reason of insanity and committed to the Riverview Mental Hospital. He escaped the hospital when his parents came to visit and they took him to nearby café. He stole their car, but was recaptured two days later in Penticton, BC.
