Police hunt doctor's killer
Woodstock native Henry Janssen was found shot dead in his truck near Lion's Head.
By Patrick MALONEY, Sun Media, Fri., January 25, 2008
A longtime Woodstock doctor whose body was found in his truck along an isolated road in Bruce County was shot to death, police confirmed last night, sparking the hunt for a killer.
Dr. Henry JANSSEN, a Woodstock native who practised family medicine in Ingersoll and in his hometown for years before moving to Bruce County, was found in the parked truck Tuesday night, not far from the small Lion's head hospital he helped run.
"I don't know why anybody would want to do this," said Herman JANSSEN, his brother.
"It's like we're… living in a movie."
Police describe the site where the 57-year-old family doctor was found -- Scenic Caves Road in Northern Bruce Peninsula -- as a "quiet, isolated rural area."
An autopsy in London yesterday confirmed a gunshot wound as the cause of death, Bruce Ontario Provincial Police said.
Investigators were saying little, but had been handing out notices to drivers passing through, asking to speak with anyone who saw parked cars or pedestrians in the area between noon and 9 p.m. Tuesday.
Last night, police said they believe "community safety is not an associated concern," suggesting that JANSSEN may not have been a random victim.
One of 10 children, JANSSEN was a star football player at Woodstock Collegiate Institute and played tight end for the University of Western Ontario Mustangs in 1972 and '73. In 1974, he was drafted third overall in the Canadian Football League draft, by Calgary.
In a Free Press interview shortly after the draft, JANSSEN said he was interested in going to medical school.
A brother, Hans, spent 26 years as the London Catholic school board's recreation supervisor. He died of cancer in 2004 and the board's track championship was named in his honour.
For the last five years, JANSSEN treated patients on the Bruce Peninsula and most recently served as site chief for small hospitals in Lion's head and Tobermory, both part of Grey Bruce Health Services.
His colleagues expressed shock at his death and support for his wife, Lynn, and children, Rebecca and David.
"To say it will be difficult to move forward without him is an understatement," Doctor Ken PRITCHARD said in a statement. "We will carry on his good work as he would want us to do, but our world will never be quite the same without him."
Members of the small community were stunned by the death.
"It's a tragedy," said Helen WESTOVER, a teacher. "He was a wonderful guy."
Former patients from around Oxford County were stunned at the news of JANSSEN's death.
Coyla Jean REEVES and her family were longtime patients of JANSSEN.
"He was an altogether likable fellow," she said. "If you wanted to joke with him, you could. He had a sense of humour."
Anyone with information is asked to contact Bruce Ontario Provincial Police at 519-534-1323 or through the Ontario Provincial Police communications centre, 1-888-310-1122.
