Homicide investigation at Joyceville Institution

The Joint Forces Penitentiary Squad, led by the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP), has now commenced a homicide investigation at Joyceville Institution near Kingston.

A previous press release from the OPP stated that on December 1, 2019 at approximately 4:30 p.m., officers from the Penitentiary Squad responded after the Correctional Service of Canada reported that an inmate had been located with life-threatening injuries and had been transported by ambulance to hospital.

The OPP has now confirmed that on Wednesday, Dec. 4, 2019 Glen Darrell Vandusen, 43 years old, died as a result of the injuries.

At the time of his death, Vandusen had been serving a sentence of four years, one month and 16 days for sexual assault, assault, and uttering threats to cause death/harm since August 22, 2019, according to Correctional Service Canada (CSC).

The investigation by members of the Penitentiary Squad is ongoing, with assistance from the Kingston Police Service and OPP East Region Crime Unit, under the direction of Detective Inspector Brad Collins of the OPP Criminal Investigation Branch (CIB).

    This is my cousin. He was deep down a good guy who had a hard life. He wasnt perfect and his life ended up in prison. He was a kind person. I spoke to his mom today, Glen was the kind of guy to help the homeless and take them to eat or even take them home and make them food. His organs are being donated so even in death he is saving lives. Please when you think of my cousin think of the good things.
