EnCana threat-letters likely written by the same person

Photo: Both RCMP and hand-writing experts believe that both threat-letters were written by the same author. Handwriting expert David Babb said the inverted saucer shape of the letter T crossings in the letters suggests the writer is keeping their anger in check.

An independent forensic document examiner and handwriting expert says the two EnCana threat-letters have the same author.

According to Vancouver-based newspaper The Province, Forensic Examiner David Babb says it’s highly probable both letters were written by the same person. He says the construction of the letters had tremors in them, which suggests neurological damage of some kind. He also notes the author appears to be focused and possess average intelligence.

On Wednesday the 15th, the Dawson Creek Daily News received a letter, which RCMP members believe to be from the same author as the previous note sent last year. The threat-letter came shortly after the sixth bombing to the area south of Dawson Creek.

The two page note stated EnCana Corp., has three months to beginning shutting down operations in the Tomslake area, ending the letter with a cryptic warning, "Don’t Delay."

The Province reports that University of Alberta sociologist Paul Joosse believes the latest letter was not written with the author’s dominant hand.

RCMP Sgt. Tim Shields said police have yet to conduct an official handwriting analysis.

Meanwhile, there have been ongoing reports that police are using excessive tactics with their investigations.

The Dawson Creek Daily News reports that Sgt. Shields says the role of the police is to do whatever is legal, moral and ethical to investigate, stop and prevent crime.

But, the newspaper says it and other media outlets has received complaints that the RCMP or INSET members are harassing and accusing members of the community.

Shields did not deny these incidents occurred, but he said that these tactics help eliminate people of interest.
