Racism or Deflection? Stephan: Former Alberta Medical Examiner's gross incompetence cost us 7 yrs of our lives.
Crown prosecution was repeatedly warned of issues with star witnesses credibility and disruptive tendencies
Supreme Court of Canada Case law addresses the issues surrounding the value of evidence that can not be understood by the litigants and the trier of facts. In this case the former Alberta Medical Examiner offered contradictory facts, went off on tangents unrelated to questions, refused to answer questions and even exploded in emotional rants.
Crown prosecutor Britta Kristensen made numerous statements regarding the struggle the Court was having in understanding the Doctor's testimony. At times the court reporter would appear to be on the verge of tears and would even interrupt testimony in an effort to clarify what had been said.

Former Alberta Medical Examiner misrepresented facts repeatedly during Stephan Trial over death of toddler
Dr Adeagbo testified to having access to 133 pages of medical records supplied by Alberta Health Services. 26 different times over his 7 days of testimony, he testified that he had reviewed and considered all the medical evidence when coming to a conclusion as to how Ezekiel Stephan died. He testified that the medical examiners file contained everything he was given.
It was then brought to his attention that the defence was aware that long after the autopsy was completed, he was on record ordering further medical documents of Ezekiel Stephan. This showed that he was aware of other records that he had not considered. In total, Ezekiel's medical records exceeded 800 pages, of which, Dr. Adeagbo only had 133 to rely on.
The requirement to re-question the witness repeatedly was a long winded theme that resulted in three months of trial. The crowns original estimation was 2 weeks. The cost to tax payers and the defense is unrecoverable.
At one point during the trial when the topic of Ezekiel dying from hypoxic injury due to going over 8 minutes without oxygen in an ill equipped AHS ambulance, Dr. Adeagbo admitted to making a practice of excluding pertinent negatives from his autopsy reports which resulted in chatter from the gallery as they were left wondering what other AHS condemning information Dr. Adeagbo had excluded from Ezekiel's autopsy report.
The fact that Dr. Adeagbo left out pertinent medical facts from his report was compounded by the fact that he refused to answer questions repeatedly during trial. At one point Justice Clackson had to scold Dr. Adeagbo and compel an answer from him. This was a theme throughout the trial.
Competence in question: Dr. Bamidele Adeagbo believed medical evidence showed that Ezekiel was dead anywhere from 4 to 9 hours prior to the 911 call operator listened to him breathing.
Dr. Adeagbo repeatedly claimed Ezekiel was dead well before arriving at the hospital. This claim was shattered by a recorded 911 call where Ezekiel was recorded breathing while his parents discussed whether they should rush him into the hospital or wait for an ambulance.
The assessment of Dr. Adeagbo left a court room full of bewildered onlookers. He later indicated that the saline had watered down the blood that was tested. This would further increase the time he claimed Ezekiel had been deceased before the 911 call.
It was further discovered that Dr. Adeagbo struggled to read basic medical charts. In one instance Dr. Adeagbo based his findings off of a belief that medical staff were unable to resuscitate Ezekiel and that his state was much worse than it was. It was clear to everyone present that his assessment was miles away from reality.

So happy to find this article and that you have been exonerated! I can't even begin to imagine what your family has been through. I pray you find strength and guidance in the coming days.

This story has hit home for me. My father caught a staff infection after a below need amputation while still in the hospital. The an above knee amputation was required. Sepsis caused kidney failure. Why and how did this happen? I took dads medical chart and I photocopied it and got it back into the hospital before they knew it was gone. Coordinated with a eye exam where he was to take the chart with him. In there where horrible lies about his family. You see once I started to ask why was my dad going thru all this. I found out the Dr unwrapped his stump while dad sat in a toilet cubicle because dr had no time to wait!

Your story is horrifying. It's incredible that you've been able to retain your sanity throughout this ordeal. What the medical establishment perpetrated on you and your family I think is criminal. I'm looking forward to hearing more on High Wire. You could make a documentary about this exposing every last one of these perpetrators including CBC state news service. A line from the movie Argo comes to mind when it's said "If you want to sell a lie, you get the press to sell it for you" May God bless you and your family for what you've been through and may the Lord keep you safe.

I’m very glad to see an appeal will be heard and your and your wife’s acquittal. I’m hoping to see your convictions re-instated. You both deserve to be in jail for not only ignoring your dying suffering child but to use him as a pawn in your conspiracy theories. You and your wife are disgusting human beings.

It appears that either you are simply not intelligent enough to process facts and evidence, OR, you are being paid to write that comment, because no decent human being could possibly do this to a family who have suffered so much already.

Not a bot, just an observer of this case. I’ve followed this case closely and i understand that facts very well. You can insult me if you want and wish ill will on my children if it makes you feel better, but facts are facts and I definitely know them.

I agree with you Jon. It’s shocking that Dave and Colette are free, living their lives like nothing happened after MURDERING their own child! What is going on in the world, this is absurd! Just the fact that they refused to vaccinate Ezekiel which resulted in him getting a very preventable disease should be enough already for them to be considered GUILTY. Seeing them smiling and laughing on TV and trying to scam people to make money makes me sick. I feel very sorry for Ezekiel who never had a chance with his arrogant parents. And for his poor siblings too who will be exposed to the same ignorance their whole lives. I hope justice finally happens in this very sad case.

There is no doubt, if we use the standards set by the U of Calgary, that it was the black doctor who was wholly racist against this white family.

How is it possible that the first face we clearly see on your page is your own? Is this an ego boosting exercise for you? Get some attention to your family's herbs brand?

You should be absolutely ashamed of yourselves as parents and human beings. Your beliefs have cost the life of your own child and you refuse to accept any responsibility for your actions. I hope you're found guilty at your retrial.

Glory to God!!! I am so happy to see that the crown has dropped their charges.
