Just wanted to stop by for a second and tell you all that the detective who is investigating the cases against my bio father just telephoned. She was looking for contact info for my mother and my brother in order to ask a few questions of them that the crown attorney was inquiring about and wanted done before they move forward. She then told me that the case has gone on to the Crown (which is why she's tying loose ends up, on the Crowns behest) and that she is hoping next week (!) to be "Dealing with X" (was how she put it). She said she'd be touching base immediately with me following which I was glad to hear. She then said that originally she thought they'd offer to have all of the cases together in HER community or he'd be doing cases in 5 separate cities and across 2 provinces. Well turns out the Crown was not having that, and has said that their office/town WILL be keeping ALL cases regardless of what the city the crime occurred in as they were keeping this case and seeing it all through to the end. That is the best sort of news, shame him in the community he lived longest where he committed most offenses against most people. So all, next week ?!?! She said if something changes from now until then she will let me know so I'm not thinking it is imminent. She also said she's still working to track down where he is living right now. That has me wondering if he's left the common law live in relationship he was in, but really, who cares. They'll find him, he has no money and can't stay floating around forever. It feels this has gone on forever and for the first time we're on the cusp of the first nail in his coffin. I'm processing as I type. It's quite surreal again today, you wait for this moment and then its in front of you and hard to comprehend. I suppose I'd given up years ago ever feeling in a position to help put an end to his abuses. And here we are. Lots to take in.
