Man who planned 1990 Tsawwassen murders of mother, grandmother has day parole extended
Darren Gowen — formerly known as Darren Huenemann — who arranged for his Mount Douglas Secondary School classmates to kill his mother and grandmother in 1990 in an effort to get a $4-million inheritance has been granted a six-month extension of day parole.
Now 50, he was first granted six months of day parole in August 2022.
Gowen, who was 18 at the time of the killings, orchestrated the murders of his 47-year-old mother, Sharon Huenemann, and 69-year-old grandmother, Doris Leatherbarrow, at Leatherbarrow’s home in Tsawwassen.
His classmates Derik Lord and David Muir carried out the murders with a knife and a crowbar while Gowen stayed in Victoria with his girlfriend.
The crime scene was made to look like a burglary had taken place.
