Warren Zufelt d. 1975 Ottawa, Ontario

I came across an article reprinted on the internet, published in a column in an Ottawa newspaper in 1975. It talks about the hysteria surrounding a supposed "homo----l prost----n ring" involving many prominent figures in Ottawa. It states "The mounting crescendo of hysteria reached its peak on March 18 when one of the accused, Warren Zufelt, a 34-year old civil servant, committed suicide and had been talked out of it. He threatened to go through with it if his name were published. On the very day that occurred, he jumped to his death from his 13-storey apartment building."

"The effect of Warren Zufelt's death was to create an atmosphere of shock in both the gay and the straight communities in Ottawa."

Does anyone know where Warren Zufelt fits in? I suspect he belongs to one of my Canadian Zufelt branches.
