Information Reported

March 24th, 1956

On Saturday morning March 24, 1956, Cecelia Pupkowski had just returned from work. Their little boy was playing at a friend’s house, and Robina was taking a walk in Beacon Hill Park. At 2:45 p.m. George Warwick was standing outside his home when he heard a woman's scream coming from the Pupkowski house. Warwick rushed inside and called police. When he came outside he saw Chester, her husband, covered in blood, half walking, half running towards Holland Point. Shocked onlookers watched as Chester waded up to his neck in the freezing ocean and started beating his head against a floating log. Police arrived and dragged Chester from the water as he pleaded with them: “Shoot me, shoot me, I want to die.” At the same time, a second squad found Cecelia’s body sprawled on the kitchen floor, her throat slashed and her head battered in. Chester never stood trial. He was sent to Essondale (Riverview Hospital) where he stayed until his death. Their son was placed in a foster home and likely had his name changed to distance himself from the tragedy. Evidently, he grew up, married and had a least one child.

I was a resident of this property for over a year, just before it had a massive fire. The basement suite had clear evidence of the sale of narcotics, from blood on the walls to paraphernalia left all around the property. The house itself had a serious black mold problem, was not insulated properly in the basement suite which allowed water to build up in the walls and floor. It had a fire that was damaging enough to make the house uninhabitable from summer of 2019 onward. View Listing »
