Basketball: Former Windsor player dies during pickup game

Terrible story out of Windsor: Mark Landry, a senior constable with the city police department and former Lancers basketball player, died of a presumed heart attack during a pickup game. A woman, Nancy Theoret was killed when the car she was riding in was struck by officers racing to set up a police escort for the ambulance taking Sr. Const. Landry to hospital.

I wouldn't wish having to report such a story on a mortal enemy, let alone suffering such a fate. Landry was 49. This is more of a Windsor story than a sports story, but condolences are due to his family, friends and the people whom Mark Landry was connected to through basketball.
