HORROR ON ALL HOLLOWS EVEPosted by Becky at November 1, 2003 06:14 AM
MAZINAW - Ontario Provincial Police responding to an anonymous break-in report found the murdered body of a young man last night. Only limited details have been released as the OPP and Royal Canadian Mounted Police begin investigation.
Charles Benson, age 31, was vacationing on Lake Mazinaw in a cabin near the one where his body was found. Cause of death has been listed as asphyxiation due to strangulation, though police have not been able to identify a murder weapon. Theft may have been a catalyst for the crime as Benson's own cabin had been ransacked with several items located at or near the murder scene.
Benson was found at the base of one of Bon Echo Park's famous ancient cedar trees, which are unusually plentiful in the area between the two cabins.
