Thumbs up Man facing charges in 10 month old deadly hit-and-run (Porsche Cayenne)

Some closure for the families of the two victims.

Quote:
Vancouver -
After a 10-month investigation, Vancouver Police have finally made an arrest in a fatal hit-and-run involving a Porsche Cayenne SUV last November. The man in custody is 37 years old and reportedly well known to police. More information is expected to be released at a morning media briefing. Hours before the arrest, Crown lawyers had approved charges against the suspect in connection to the deaths of 35-year-old Stanley Wong and 31-year-old John Paul Larkin. Wong, Larkin, and their friend Ron Chan had been exiting a cab outside Club Aqua on Hastings last Remembrance Day when Chan says a silver Porsche Cayenne came at them at 100 kilometres an hour. Five minutes before the crash, the vehicle had blown through a roadblock on Pacific Boulevard and was later found near Bute and Cordova Streets. Police note the SUV had never been reported stolen.

So the guy's name hasn't been released yet? I guess this will put to rest the rumours of the suspect being Cloutier.

Did it really require 10 months for them to arrest someone?

It took CSI:Vancouver approximately 1 season to solve this case.

Depending on the evidence they had going for 'em, quite possibly.

Do you have any idea how long it often takes to make an arrest in some cases?

yes. unlike tv, you need evidence to be bulletproof for a conviction. not to mention all those fancy tests that they run on CSI aren't done that fast and they usually cost like a few grand each time they run a DNA test.... so no, they're not doing it slow. they're doing right so that the criminals don't have a chance to appeal or even get the case overturned on bad evidence.

^ LOL!

Guy is a drug dealer running away from the cops. Cops haulted the chase because it was too dangerous, but the guy kept speeding like a maniac anyways.

Porsche SUV double hit and run driver jailed

By David Carrigg, The ProvinceDecember 2, 2010 7:30 PM

A man who sped through downtown Vancouver in a luxury SUV before he struck and killed two men and fled the scene has been jailed for five and a half years.

Provincial court judge Gregory Rideout said in his ruling Thursday that Paul George Antunes, 35, was criminally negligent when he sped through the streets of Vancouver early in the morning of Nov. 11, 2005, and killed lifelong friends Stanley Wong and John Larkin.

Wong, Larkin and another friend, Ronnie Chan, were attempting to cross the 1,000-block of West Hastings Street at 1:10 a.m. when they were struck by Antunes.

Wong died instantly, Larkin died 10-days later in hospital and Chan suffered leg injuries.

According to court records, several minutes before the deadly incident Antunes was involved in a police chase that was called off due to the risk that someone might get hurt.

The court found that after Antunes struck the trio he drove the damaged Porsche Cayenne SUV a few blocks away to the intersection of Bute and Cordova Streets and fled the scene, along with his passenger Miljan Barjaktarovic, who has since died.

From that point on, an intense and complex investigation ensued involving DNA and crash-scene experts.

The work started with the recovery of the vehicle and the discovery of an Impark ticket and business card with fingerprints on them.

The vehicle was found to be leased to a Catherine Yen on behalf of Shana Yong. Antunes was found to have been in a longtime relationship with Yong. The pair have a five-year-old child together.

A covert police operation was then conducted to gather DNA from Antunes and Barjaktarovic.

Police linked Antunes’ DNA to blood found on the Porsche driver’s-side airbag and a warrant was issued for his arrest in Oct. 2006.

Antunes was charged with two counts of criminal negligence causing death, one of criminal negligence causing bodily harm and of failing to remain at the scene of an accident.

The court heard from several witnesses who saw the accident and it’s tragic aftermath.

The vehicle blew a red light just prior to the accident and was travelling at least 80 kilometres per hour at the time the trio were struck.

Antunes defence claimed their client may have been in the passenger seat of the SUV. This was rejected by Rideout.

Antunes, who did not testify at the trial, is currently being sued by the Wong family for damages.
