When Nancy Greenside arrived at the Camrose group home to relieve Val Wolski, she saw the body of her friend and co-worker and screamed.
Greenside threw her bag at Saddleback, ran out the door and locked herself in her car to dial 911.
Saddleback, a troubled 26-year-old man with a long history of violent behaviour that was documented in hundreds of incident reports dating back many years, strangled Wolski, 41, on Feb. When Saddleback's care was turned over to the Canadian Mental Health Association, workers like Wolski and Greenside were never told about the danger he posed, Greenside said.
Saddleback was nearly 6'5" and weighed close to 300 lbs.After the hearing concluded Friday, Wolski's family said the inquiry brings them little satisfaction."It's not really a relief because we still have no answers; everybody here is pointing fingers at someone else," said sister-in-law Katie Mc Gregor."Valerie was let down by all the parties involved," said Wolski's brother, Clifford Mc Gregor.He had a severe developmental disability and an unpredictable hair-trigger temper, the hearing heard.
