SD&G, Ontario – Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) have charged a former South Dundas Township resident following investigation of a suspicious death more than two and a half years ago.

On Feb. 6, 2016, members of the Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry (SD&G) OPP Detachment and local Emergency Medical Services responded to a call for assistance at a private residence in the Township of South Dundas. A resident – 67-year-old Edward Robert Allen – was found in medical distress and shortly thereafter succumbed to his injuries.

Members of SD&G Crime Unit under the direction of Detective-Inspector Dan Nadeau of the Criminal Investigation Branch (CIB) commenced a lengthy investigation of the circumstances leading to the victim’s death. As a result of the investigation, 58-year-old Beverly Rose Thomas of Digby, NS has been charged with First Degree Murder contrary to Section 235 (1) of the Criminal Code of Canada.

The accused will be transported to Ontario and is scheduled to appear at the Ontario Court of Justice in Cornwall on Sept. 28, 2018.

The OPP gratefully acknowledges the Halifax Regional Police Service and RCMP in Digby, NS for their respective support and assistance with this investigation.
