Mur­der charge added in Panchyshyn case

Wiarton Echo - - NEWS -

A Chatsworth Town­ship man has been charged with sec­ond-de­gree mur­der in con­nec­tion with the case of Nolan Panchyshyn, po­lice said Wed­nes­day evening.

David Beat­tie, 22, was ini­tially charged with in­dig­nity to a dead body and fail­ing to com­ply with pro­ba­tion, the OPP said in a news re­lease. As a re­sult of an on­go­ing in­ves­ti­ga­tion, he was ar­rested Mon­day and charged with sec­ond-de­gree mur­der, po­lice said.

Panchyshyn, 20, of Southamp­ton, was re­ported miss­ing on Dec. 20, 2017. Of­fi­cers later lo­cated his body dur­ing a search of a prop­erty near Dornoch.

An­other man was also charged with sec­ond-de­gree mur­der and in­dig­nity to hu­man re­mains in con­nec­tion with the case, but the sta­tus of those charges was not ad­dressed in Wed­nes­day’s news re­lease.

Beat­tie is sched­uled to ap­pear by video in an Owen Sound court Nov. 6 on the lat­est charge.

The in­ves­ti­ga­tion con­tin­ues and South Bruce OPP asks any­one with in­for­ma­tion of any kind, no mat­ter how small, to call the OPP at 1-888310-1122, or con­tact Crime Stop­pers.
