David Shearing/Ennis applying for parole!

David William Shearing
Crimes: Mass Murder, Child Rape, Kidnapping

OK, this is something that cannot be allowed to happen. David Shearing aka David Ennis has applied for day and full parole. His hearing is on September 18, 2012. Day parole would allow him to live in a halfway house, and full parole would allow him to live in the community. This monster of a hellbeast murdered six people! George and Edith Bentley and Bob and Jackie Johnson were shot at their campsite so that this murderous pedophile could kidnap the Johnson’s two girls Janet and Karen. He kept the girls captive and subject to rape and molestation for up to 2 weeks and finally murdered them too!

There is an online petition and I beg and plead all readers to please SIGN IT. Public pressure contributed to this hellbeast’s previous denial of parole, so let’s make it happen again! Thank you!

For those who do not know the story, the original post is below.

In Alberta’s Bowden Institution, about 100 kilometers north of Calgary, lives a very sorry individual. He cries in his cell and tells everyone how remorseful he is, how ashamed. He’s been in prison since 1984, and he wants everyone to believe he’s not the same person now — he’s new and improved! David William Shearing even changed his surname to Ennis, his mother’s maiden name, because he’s not the same person. He wants out on parole, he wants to start life anew, and he wants all of us to forget who and what he really is.

Nothing’s changed. It’s always been about what he wants. It’s especially true of the week of Aug. 2, 1982. That’s the week David William Shearing/Ennis destroyed an entire family. Six loved and loving people dead because he wanted them to be dead.

David William Shearing/Ennis, then 23, didn’t know George and Edith Bentley, a very nice retired couple who had decided to join their daughter Jackie Johnson and her family for a nice camping trip in British Columbia’s beautiful Wells Gray National Park. Wilderness, mountains and waterfalls — the perfect setting for camping out. Jackie and her husband Bob brought along their two lovely girls, Janet, 13 and Karen, 11 for what should have been a great holiday with the grandparents.

David William Shearing
David William Shearing/Ennis didn’t want to know George and Edith, or Jackie and Bob. Ever. He knew that as he stalked them for 24 hours. He knew that even as he crawled on his belly through the undergrowth in the darkness toward the campfire where they were sitting. He knew without meeting them that he wanted them dead. That’s why he had a .22 calibre weapon with him.

There were two reasons he wanted the four adults dead — the two young girls sleeping in the tent. When he’d spotted them earlier, he decided he particularly wanted Janet, the pretty blonde 13-year-old, for his monstrous and twisted sadistic sexual fantasies, and if he had to kill to get her, so be it. Little Karen, I guess, was a bonus.

I don’t know whom David William Shearing/Ennis shot first. I don’t know if the other three knew what was happening right away before the second victim was shot. But one by one he picked them off until he was the only adult standing. There was now nothing and nobody to come between him and the girls.

David William Shearing/Ennis has said he told the girls a biker gang had killed their family. But then he has said a lot of things that aren’t true. There was no mention of a silencer on that .22 — I kinda have my doubts the girls slept peacefully through all four murders. And I’m thinking they woke up to reality really fast when this six foot tall sick sadistic hell beast crawled into their tent, tied up Karen and ordered Janet to undress.

David William Shearing/Ennis said that Janet’s weeping made him lose the urge to be sadistic. Oh, yeah, a lot of sadistic hell beasts get turned off by the tears and screams of their victims. It makes them go all soft. So all he did was diddle with her a little (four times only) — no rape he says. Sure. And he didn’t touch Karen. Sure.

David William Shearing/Ennis, he’d just murdered four people so he could spend some quality time with the girls. I’m sure they sang songs and told stories around the campfire. Maybe he told them about his arrests for assault, drug possession, DWI. Hey, maybe he told them about that hit and run accident the year before where he killed a guy and beat the rap.

No matter what he did with the girls (and he’s the only one who truly knows), David William Shearing/Ennis took his time. He took several days in fact. Not that they hung around the dead people all that time. No, he took them to his parents’ ranch and then to a small fishing cabin beside Clearwater River, then back to the ranch.

And the time came when it was time to part. According to David William Shearing/Ennis, he thoughtfully took one of the sisters into the woods, asked her to turn around because he had to piss, then shot her in the head. No muss, no fuss. And then he went back for the other girl, and ditto, same thing. I personally don’t believe him but I hate to dwell on the more likely horrific scenarios.

So now David William Shearing/Ennis had six dead people on his hands. He piled the four adult corpses into the Johnson’s car, and tucked the two children’s bodies into the trunk, drove someplace more remote than the campsite, and set the whole thing ablaze. The next day he drove the Bentley’s camper to Trophy Mountain and set it on fire after looting it first of any valuables.

Bob Johnson had never missed a day’s work in 20 years, so when he didn’t return from his holiday, the search in Wells Gray Park began immediately. But unhappily David William Shearing chose his hiding places well because the burnt out vehicles remained undiscovered for ages.

It wasn’t until September 13th that a mushroom picker stumbled upon what was left of Bob Johnson’s incinerated car and the remains of the Johnsons and Bentleys. And 14 months later the camper was discovered, 20 km from the murder site and 30 km from the Johnson’s car.

Sgt. Michael Eastham of the RCMP led the investigation. They received 13,000 tips in all. And one of those tips told of David Shearing who had killed a guy in a hit-and-run. The Mounties uncovered Shearing’s troubled past, and since he lived in the area of the murders all his life, he was a person of interest. After all, it had to be someone local to hide those vehicles so well. The Mounties got really interested when they learned he’d asked a friend how to register a truck with a bullet hole in the door. The Bentley’s vehicle had had a bullet hole in the door.

There wasn’t much evidence to go on, but Sgt. Eastham had a bad feeling about David William Shearing. I don’t know what brilliant techniques he used, (being Canadian he probably asked politely) but the end result of the interrogation was a confession. Police later found items stolen from the camper at his parents’ ranch.

On April 16, 1984, Shearing/Ennis pleaded guilty to six counts of murder. He was sentenced to six concurrent terms of life imprisonment with no possibility of parole for 25 years.

David William Shearing/Ennis had told authorities that he murdered the Bentleys and Johnsons for the stuff he stole. Sgt. Eastham didn’t believe that robbery crap, and after the trial he managed to convince the killer to ‘fess up. It was only through Sgt. Eastham’s determined efforts that we know the true motivation behind this monster’s actions.

Now retired, Sgt. Eastham said, “If ever released, he could kill again.” He’s not the only one to believe it. When Shearing/Ennis applied for parole at the ripe age of 48, thousands of people signed petitions and family members forwarded victim impact statements to the National Parole Board to make sure he stayed put. It worked, and the David William Shearing/Ennis still cries in his cell.

“I still have bloody nightmares today,” said Sgt. Eastham. I can only pray that David William Shearing/Ennis is living a bloody nightmare every day.

UPDATE: Parole denied

    This piece of scum stalked a family and killed them so he could basically rape their daughters who were both under 14 if i remember rightly. And this scumbag has changed his name because he’s changed, so he say’s. If this guy can take out 6 people just so he can satisfy his pedo perversion’s then he’s capable of much worse. He needs to stay where he is, and die where he is. Its the only way to be sure that he can.t kill again, because he will. The parole board need to say to themselves .”Am i prepared to risk someone being murdered just on account that this person has served his sentence, and there’s always the risk he’ll kill again” Because this piece of shit will kill again without a doubt. Keep the fucker locked up till death.

  4. Trace says:

    Come on people! Sign the petition and deny this mass murderer any chance of getting out again! I signed it and it’s easy.

  5. Eve says:

    The petition is getting close to 700 signatures. Not a bad start but a long way to go still. Everyone should sign because I can’t believe anyone out there thinks this creature should be turned loose.

  6. Eve says:

    The petition to keep Shearing in prison has only 728 signatures. Sign it now and remember to verify! We gotta keep this mass murderer behind bars!

  7. bengalpuss29 says:

    I suppose your right eve, cos if they did check then they wouldn’t be seriously contemplating releasing a 6 times killer would they, no wonder your trying to get as many signatures as possible. If this piece of crap was going to be released in britain i’d be seriously worried. When i originally read this story i couldn’t believe how anybody could be so cruel. If all he wanted was the young girls which is bad enough, he could have tied the adults up done what a paedaphile does and then go, he didn.t need to kill them poor people who were having a family vacation. When i was commenting on pysih one of the relatives of the murdered family came on and said “This man killed my grandchildren’s family he cannot be allowed to be released” I felt so sorry for her i had to reply and tell her how sorry i was. She must be going though hell and back thinking that this cunt is going to be released. He should have been told that he will never be released and that he will die in prison. I better sign the petition then.

  8. Allyson says:

    Well, I can only hope and pray that the mass murderer does not get out. I know the family and know the toll that it has taken on them over the years. As these parole hearing come up (every 2 years) they have to relive this night mare over and over. You think the guy would figure it out that to do the right thing he should never apply again… ever. That would be the right thing to do if indeed he was truly sorry. But I guess he is only thinking of himself.

  9. Danielle says:

    Bullet in the head is a God’s gift for people like him (sick sick sick!). Sick mind line his can never heal!

    BTW: Why are we wasting our taxpayers money to keep him even alive?

    • awesomeblossom says:

      Danielle, he’s a waste of money, a waste of skin, a waste of space. The only space on this planet I think he deserves is in a small cardboard box in a dump, or better yet as ashes scattered to the wind.

  10. bengalpuss29 says:

    Awesomeblossom, your right this guy is a waste of everything. I wouldn’t even insult the wind with this bastards ashe’s. This piece of crap should stay where he is, he’s an absolute danger to society. This cunt killed four people, just so he could rape the young girls. He could of tied them up and left them to commit his heinous act, but he had to murder them. Imagine what those poor girls were going through, knowing their parents were dead, and pretty soon they were going to be dead. The fear those girls must of felt is beyond any words i can write. I seriously don.t think that the parole board will let this fucker out of jail, as he’s too dangerous. Just because he’s changed his surname doesn’t mean that his mind set has changed. This guys a fucking psychopath, the public need protecting from him. So im definately signing the petition.

  11. cleo says:

    Today is the day! David Shearing aka Ennis is appearing before the parole board in his latest effort to get out. I will keep readers posted. Meantime I shall be keeping fingers crossed that he is denied parole.

    • bengalpuss29 says:

      Cleo, if this cunt gets parole i’ll eat tyke’s cat food. Surely to god they can.t release a man that brutally killed 6 people in cold blood. Lets us know the outcome cleo.

      • cleo says:

        I will post the parole board’s ruling as soon as I learn of it. I feel bad for the friends and family whose loved ones were murdered by the bastard having to sit through the hearing, reliving those awful, awful times once again.

  12. bengalpuss29 says:

    Thankyou to the parole board for making the right decision, and putting the victims families first. Does it say cleo why they denied it? or do they Just say parole denied? I bet shearing, isn.t having a good day, and i hope that he never gets out. Anybody that can kill four people in cold blood, just so they can rape two young girls that are just barely teenagers. Those girls must have been terrified, they must have known that they were gonna die and this bastard murdered them. He should be left to rot in jail the fucking evil pig. Yes cleo i thank the parole board for making a sensible decision. When can this evil scumbag apply again?

    • cleo says:

      The National Parole Board ruled David Shearing still has violent sexual fantasies, hasn’t completed sex offender treatment and is not ready for freedom. He did apologize but that did not count for much with the Board. He can apply for parole every 2 years from now on.

  13. bengalpuss29 says:

    So every two years those poor relatives of the victims have to go through yet another ordeal. It must be a relief for them today, but in 24months its back again to stop this murderous bastard from getting out. They must be petrified thinking if he gets parole, someone else may have to go through what they have gone through. If this scumbag can wipe an entire family of 6 out, then what else is he capable of doing? No the evil pig needs to stay there until he drops dead, which i hope is very soon.

  14. bengalpuss29 says:

    So this ball of shite, hasn.t finished sex offender treatment, even though he’s had 30yrs to complete it in. And someone cleo, that can stalk and wipe a whole family out, just so they can rape the young girls, will always have violent sexual fantasies in my eyes. If he one day gets parole, then i feel like thats a Slap in the face to the victims families. And also saying that, the people who were murdered didn.t matter. David shearing should never be freed from jail. David shearing, will always be a danger to society and deserves nothing less than to rot in jail. Im more for the victims. Im sick to death of people sticking up for these bastards. And those people that are getting sentenced to death, the people that defend those fucker’s, saying that the state are gonna murder them. What about the people that these bastards have murdered, they didn.t get a last meal, or someone fighting for their rights. So why should those murdering cunts get any consideration. It sickening, get your priorities straight.

    The world needs good people like you spreading this news around.

  16. bengalpuss says:

    Cleo, is amazing, i don.t know how she does it, but she makes sure that the scumbag’s that are released, due to be released, or those that never got sentenced because of a stupid arse judge, that people need to know about them. She also has her unique way with wording the scumbag’s, which i love about her posts. Plus she like a lot of us on this site, is an animal lover, and names and shame’s evil bastards that get their kicks out of mistreating, abusing and killing animals. I too am glad that cleo exposes these shitheads for what they really are “Hellbeastly bastards”
