Kill them. For the Lord knows those that are His own.
« on: June 07, 2018, 02:40:33 PM »
On August 27, 2007, All About Receiving Cash "graduate" and former Peer Counsellor Andrew Evans murdered Nicole Parisien in an apartment in Kitsilano, BC.  Evans beat and stomped the woman to death.  Evans rolled her body up in a sheet and dumped in some bushes outside the building.  He then telephoned AARC sect leader Dean Vause.  Evans told Vause that he believed that he had killed somebody.  Neither man bothered to call emergency services.  Vause instead advised Evans to head for Calgary.  Evans was able to manage evidence from the crime for hours, and then was provided with AARC's then go-to lawyer, Mark Tyndale.  Evans eventually surrendered to police in Calgary on the night of August 29, 2007. 

Now one has to ask, given that Evan claims to have been not responsible for his actions due to the effects of ecstasy, marijuana and alcohol, why Dean Vause didn't immediately call an ambulance and police for Nicole Parisien.  This is a "man" who claims to save lives, and yet the simplest effort to help Nicole Parisien seemed not to have occurred to the Great Healer.

As with all crimes committed by AARC graduates, and boy, there are a lot of them, the spin was immediately put out that the "disease" was to blame.  Evans' fellow sect members piled onto Facebook gushing praise for the frenzy-killer.  The story was immediately planted in the Vancouver press that Parisien was a sex-trade worker and that Evans had killed her in an incoherent rage after failing to get an erection.  Not much of this story matches the available evidence.  Evans was clearly in control of his actions.  He stole a hooded sweatshirt from the apartment to obscure his face, and attempted to expunge evidence from the scene.  He managed to contact the Wiz in his alleged deranged state, and he made out for cowtown like a scalded ape.

According to the records I have seen, Evans did not complete any of his work programs while incarcerated, until he began using the good ol' Stepcraft to minister to fellow inmates.  There is no evidence that Evans underwent any psychological treatment in prison, although he apparently spoke to the Wiz on the phone once a week.  At his parole hearing Evans expressed disdain for Parisien's "lifestyle", quite rich coming from a guy who claims to have been buying hookers and who then nearly decapitated a woman in a violent murder. 

The Wiz attended Evans' parole hearing, and vouched for him being just a super guy but one who suffers from that awful disease.  And with that, Evans was released, returned to Calgary, and went back into All About Receiving Cash.  I have not confirmed whether he went back to the adolescent program as a thirty-two-year-old client, or if he was just one more super-qualified staff member.

Here is an excerpt from the hearing regarding admission of evidence in Evans's trial.  The statements about Evans' demeanor with police are quite apalling.  He has just finished stomping and pulverizing a woman almost to decapitation, and he is joking with police and engaging in banal chat.  Does that seem like a man overwhelmed with remorse and facing the gravity of a heinous crime?

"Again, Mr. Evans’ response was, “No comment at this point.”  There followed quite an animated discussion about Mr. Evans’ involvement in soccer as a member of the UBC Thunderbirds, facilities at the UBC campus, and other matters completely unrelated to the index offence"

Now keep in mind that Tyndale apparently advised Evans and the police that a manslaughter charge could be in order.  This apparently because Evans was too deranged to form intent.  Does Evans capacity to recount the circumstances of the murder jive with Tyndale's proposed tactic:

"On Sunday, August 26, Mr. Evans picked up a case of beer and took it to his apartment. He drank a few. He also consumed some hash. He was invited over to the apartment of acquaintances where he had a small amount of the drug “Ecstasy” and two stiff drinks of hard liquor. The group of friends then went to the Roxy Nightclub. Mr. Evans said he was by then quite drunk. At the Roxy, he drank approximately seven more beer. Sometime after midnight, he decided he had to go home because he was too drunk to remain there. He hailed a cab. On his way home, he decided to stop at a confectionary near his apartment to buy cigarettes. When he went into the confectionary, he saw there was Internet access. He went onto Craigslist to the erotic services pages and obtained some numbers of women in the sex trade. He phoned a couple of the numbers and made arrangements to see two different women.
[37]           He then went to his apartment building just a few blocks away. He could not remember whether he actually entered his apartment. Another cab picked him up and took him to an apartment building at 1450 Chestnut Street, which was only a few minutes’ drive away. He recalled ringing a bell to an apartment and eventually being let into the building. He proceeded to apartment 517, Nicole Parisien’s apartment.
[38]           Ms. Parisien greeted Mr. Evans at the door. He gave her $200. The apartment was a one-bedroom apartment. Ms. Parisien was partly clothed. She invited Mr. Evans to undress. They both went into the bedroom located down a short hallway off the living room area. Mr. Evans described the bedroom, the bed, and the bedding. He recalled Ms. Parisien putting a condom on him."

I was in contact many years ago with a reporter who put out one of the first stories that sold the Evans version of events.  I asked her if someone had provided her with these details and whether or not she was told how to formulate the story.  She replied, without question, in the affirmative.

This is important, because apparently Evans defence felt that it was necessary to paint Parisien as somehow not necessarily worthy of the same consideration as any other human being:

"[107]      Although this evidence is not being tendered for a hearsay purpose, defence counsel objects to its admission on the basis that its prejudicial effect outweighs its probative value. The tendency, he argued, will be for the jury to take from the evidence that Ms. Parisien was a good person who had turned her life around only to be killed by the accused."

What reasonable person would accept the idea of putting Evans back in AARC with kids as young as thirteen?  And what reasonable person would look at the Wiz's willingness to simply ignore the plight of Nicole Parisien while managing the terms of surrender of the AARC accountant's son?
