Ken Barker, 51, a retired Colonel of the RCMP had struggled with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) ever since he arrived first at the scene of the gruesome July 30, 2008, decapitation of Tim McLean on a Greyhound Bus in Canada by Vincent Li. Despite 20 years of experience with violent crimes, this scene haunted Barker to the end.
