“Jackson's Cove, one of the most Spectacular Places on the Bruce Peninsula. You will be awestruck when you come down the hill, the water is like the Caribbean.”

Dr. Henry Janssen was found shot to death in his red Chevy pickup truck, on Scenic Caves Road, in Ontario’s idyllic Bruce Peninsula community of Jackson’s Cove, just after 9 PM on January 22, 2008. Only two days later his friend and neighbour, retired corporate executive Allan Wayne Powney, was charged with his murder.

Powney spent three months in jail before being granted bail in May last year. After several further delays, we have just now learned that his case has been adjourned to the December 4, 2009 Ontario Superior Court of Justice assignment court. It is currently expected that his first-degree murder trial will not begin until “next April or fall” — whatever that may finally mean.
