CFN– Stories like this don’t hit Cornwall very often.
Frankly they don’t come about that often here in Canada. It has intrigue, suffering, and many questions with few answers.
It started out as a simple police blotter item.
It turns into a story of intrigue and possible harm, kidnapping, fleeing justice and warrants.
It takes it’s protaganists from Texas to Montreal, and ends up with the victim in the Cornwall Ontario Community Hospital fighting for her life.
(South Glengarry, ON) – On June 07, 2012, members of the Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry Crime Unit of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP), responded to a call in the Township of South Glengarry and as a result, an 81 year old female was taken to hospital.
An investigation resulted in the arrest of Sheridan DIAZ, 60 of South Glengarry Township on June 13, 2012. She is charged with Failing to Provide the Necessities of Life and was held in custody for a bail hearing which is to be held on June 25, 2012 at the Ontario Court of Justice, Cornwall.
So we started digging into this story. Dr. Diaz was living and working in the Houston Texas area. She and Ms XXXXXXXXX lived together and shared several properties. They have been a couple for over 40 years and met while Dr. Diaz was attending McGill University to become a Doctor.
Something happened though. Sources told CFN that Ms XXXXXX had not had contact with her family in nearly two years. Finally a missing person complaint was issued.
There was a police blotter mention in Texas. LINK

That led all the way to Cornwall. Allegedly Ms Diaz smuggled XXXXXXXX back into Canada in the trunk of her car in March 2012. They allegedly settled into a home in Dorval, Quebec where Ms XXXXXXX was kept captive with two large dogs. Somehow she escaped and ended up in a hospital where Dr. Diaz is alleged to have somehow got “her mother” out of the hospital and fled to a residence in South Glengarry Ontario.
Neighbors hearing cries for help resulted in the OPP investigating and most likely saving Ms XXXXXXX who had wasted away to about 75 pounds and had bite wounds from the dogs.
The family is flying and driving in from different locales to be reunited, but so many questions remain unanswered. One person speaking anonymously stated they just want to make sure that Dr. Diaz is not released on bail as they fear that somehow she will get a hold of Ms XXXXX again.
