VANCOUVER — Convicted killer Francis McLaughlin was a free man for more than 25 years before the parole board noticed a change in his behaviour and sent him back to prison, where he died about 10 months later.  Read the story from the Vancouver Sun.

    It is very sad that the diagnosis of dementia was not made earlier in the case of Francis McLaughlin. He could

    have received help, such as, appropriate medication as well as support. Moreover, he might have been able to

    spend his last days in a centre for persons who suffer from this debilitating disease instead of in a prison cell.

    I do hope that CSC has learned from this case.
