Muskoka constable killed, partner injured as cruiser hits moose
By Rob SHAW, Thursday, July 21, 2005, Page A10
The town of Bracebridge is known as the "heart of Muskoka," but for many in the small community, yesterday was simply a heartbreaking day.
A well-known local Ontario Provincial Police constable was killed, and his partner injured, when their cruiser collided with a moose at around 2: 30 a.m. while the two were en route to a domestic dispute call.
Twenty-nine-year-old Andrew POTTS, known to Friends as Andy, was pronounced dead at the scene.
His partner, 39-year-old Matt HANES, was airlifted to St. Michael's Hospital in Toronto where he was in serious but stable condition, police said yesterday afternoon.
Constable POTTS, a Harley-Davidson motorcycle enthusiast, was born and raised in the Muskoka-Bracebridge area. He was, said his colleague and friend Constable Ted SMITH, a nice guy to talk to. He was a good listener, and had a good sense of humour."
He leaves his parents, a sister and his girlfriend.
The accident shocked and saddened the 65-officer Bracebridge Muskoka police detachment and the surrounding community, said Ontario Provincial Police Commissioner Gwen BONIFACE, who was on scene by 5 a.m. in an area that is at least two hours north of Toronto.
"It's a terrible collision, an odd set of circumstances, and a tremendous loss for us," Ms. BONIFACE said. "Andy POTTS was from this area, he grew up in this community, and you can feel, not just in this detachment but from the response we've had in the community today, that this is being really felt right across the Muskoka area.
"Obviously, a collision with a moose is rare, but that's what we do -- every day we're out there driving. I know there are officers who will step back today and say, 'There but for the grace of God go I.' "
Constable POTTS is the first on-duty Ontario Provincial Police officer to be killed this year, and the 90th in the organization's history. The last time an officer was killed in an accident involving a moose was in 1963 near North Bay. The last five Ontario Provincial Police deaths have been as a result of motor vehicle accidents.
Bracebridge was where Constable POTTS most wanted to be, Constable SMITH said. The seven-year Ontario Provincial Police veteran spent two years at the Pickle Lake detachment in Northwestern Ontario before returning to his hometown detachment.
"This is the type of guy, who is a solid officer, who you wanted to go to calls with because you knew he was there to back you up if you had any problems," Constable SMITH said.
His on-duty partner, Constable HANES, is a 14-year Ontario Provincial Police veteran who is married with three young children.
The exact cause of the accident is still unknown, police said, although the night was foggy and the moose was standing on Highway 169 as the officers travelled west to the domestic dispute near Bala.
Fall is usually the peak season for moose accidents, but because the animals are heat-sensitive, they are likely travelling during the cool nighttime hours to cope with the recent heat wave, Howard SMITH, senior biologist at the Ministry of Natural Resources, said.
Moose can be naturally attracted to highways because they represent the edge of a forest, and they often choose not to move as a vehicle approaches, he said.
An investigation into the crash is under way. Constable SMITH would not say if the cruiser was travelling quickly, or if it had its emergency lights on.
"A moose is probably one of the most dangerous of all animals to run into," said Bruce LEESON, senior environmental assessment scientist with Parks Canada.
"It has such tall legs, you don't actually hit the body, you hit the legs and it comes across the hood and then takes off the roof of the car," Dr. LEESON said.
It is the equivalent of running head-on into the back of a tractor-trailer, said Ontario Provincial Police Sergeant Jerry BLACE, who has seen the results of such accidents.
You have a 1-in-200 chance of being killed if you hit a moose with your car, compared to a 1-in-3,500 chance if you hit a deer, according to data from the U.S. National Co-Operative Highway Research Program.
Canadian member of Parliament Steven FLETCHER hit a moose and survived north of Winnipeg in 1996, but he now uses a wheelchair due to injuries he suffered in the collision. He became the first quadriplegic elected to Parliament in the last federal election.
The most recent Transport Canada report, from March of 2003, said that four to eight collisions of large animals and vehicles happen every hour in Canada.
Ontario has an estimated 115,000 moose, most of them in the northern part of the province.

She had two brothers, Allister and George, and one sister Eileen (Johnson), all predeceased. Winnie lived in the Flesherton area and attended public school at Springhill and then Flesherton high school (on the Macphail site). She worked as a helper at Duncan's farm north of Corbetton, and in the original Munshaw House in Flesherton. She married Jack OLDFIELD in 1940, and they were to share more than 50 years together until his death in Winnie and Jack farmed on the Oldfield farm on Highway 10 near Corbetton. They had four daughters: Pat, Marie, Margaret and Janice. In 1969-70, the family moved to a new house on Victoria Street in Dundalk. They became well-known business people in the area, operating Shell Oil and a coal business until 1979.
In retirement, Winnie and Jack travelled extensively and did comparisons on farming all over the world, South America, Cuba, Australia, Scandinavia, and Great Britain, along with travels throughout Canada and the United States.
Their daughter Marie married David HENRY in 1978 and granddaughters Cara and Blaire were born. Daughter Janice married Wayne CROFT in 1984 and gave Winnie and Jack a grand_son, Ryne. The grandchildren spent many happy hours with their grandmother, sharing news from their days at school.

MORRISSEY, Hon. Martin Thomas Joseph
Of London, Ontario, passed away peacefully on October 16, 2005, with his family at his side at the age of 84. Martin is survived by his loving wife of 54 years, Mary Kathleen MORRISSEY (nee CROCKER,) daughter Theresa and husband Stephen JARRETT, daughter Elizabeth and husband David BLACK, son Paul and wife Mary Jo, and daughter Deidre and husband Malcolm RUDDOCK. He is survived by two sisters, Josephine BRESNAHAN (Barry's Bay) and Bernadette BELANGER (Hamilton.) Martin is predeceased by his parents, Elizabeth Agnes (née O'CONNOR) and Martin Lawrence, and siblings, Leonard, Irene, Jimmy, and Rose. Grandpa will be sadly missed by grandchildren Adam, Michael, and Peter JARRETT; Jennifer and John BLACK; Patrick, Joseph, Brendan, James, John, Peter, and Luke MORRISSEY; and Callum and Emma RUDDOCK. He will also be missed by his large extended family who were always in his thoughts and prayers. Born August 29, 1921, in Madawaska, Ontario, Martin was the youngest of seven. Because his father died before his birth, Martin and his siblings looked to eldest brother Leonard to help their mother manage the farm. Martin's childhood was filled with hard work and laughter, and the simple pleasures of the Madawaska Valley. Martin enlisted in the Royal Canadian Air Force in 1941; upon discharge in 1945, he enrolled at Osgoode Hall Law School and was called to the Ontario Bar in 1949. Martin was employed at the Toronto firm of Slaght, Ferguson, Boland and Slaght, then in 1950 moved to London, joining the firm of Little Calder, which became Little, Morrissey, Gillespie and Reeves. There his practice was focused primarily on municipal and education law, as well as civil litigation and solicitors' work. Martin was appointed Queen's Counsel in 1974 and served as President of the Middlesex Bar Association (1975). In 1980 Martin was appointed to the Bench, serving the Peel Region in the County and District Court of Ontario and subsequently the Ontario Court (General Division) until 1994. Martin served his community through many organizations, including Clarkson Community Volunteers (1993-01), Credit Valley Hospital (Board of Directors, 1981-84), St. Leonard's House (Board of Directors, 1972-74), St. Leonard's Society of Canada (1972-75), House of Providence for Senior Citizens (Marian Villa) (Board Chair, 1960-62), Irish Benevolent Society (President, 1959-60), Canadian Federation of Newman Clubs (Vice President 1949-50), Knights of Columbus (Member, Fourth Degree), and the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Ontario (London Chapter) and Ontario Credit Union League (Honorary Solicitor). In 2001 Martin and Mary returned to London to be closer to family and Cedar Shadows, the Port Franks cottage that is a cherished legacy for his family. Martin was singularly proud of his family, from his wife's artistic talents and his children's professional accomplishments, to his grandchildren's educational and sports achievements, and his family is so proud of what Martin accomplished through hard work and determination. Visitation will be held at James A. Harris Funeral Home, 220 St. James St. at Richmond, London, on Thursday, October 20 from 2-4 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. The funeral Mass will be celebrated at St. Michael's Church, 515 Cheapside St. at Maitland, London, on Friday, October 21 at 11 a.m. (private interment). Parish Prayers will be held in the funeral home on Thursday at 3 p.m. Thanks to all who have supported Martin and his family over the last three years, particularly Dr. SWIFT and the staff in the Palliative Care Unit at London Health Sciences Centre, the staff at the Adam Linton Dialysis Unit, the staff at the London Regional Cancer Centre, and the Cancer Society volunteer drivers; also, we want to thank all of the caring St. Elizabeth nurses and personal support workers (particularly Sam, Bob, Nick, and Mike), and the staff of Sir Adam Beck Condominium. As an expression of sympathy, memorial donations may be made to Sisters of Saint Joseph Hospitality Centre, 707 Dundas Street, London, Ontario N5W 2Z5, or the Canadian Cancer Society.

BAIRD, John Peter
At Toronto, on Tuesday, January 25, 2005, at 4: 00 p.m., John, at age 91, peacefully slipped away to his eternal rest surrounded by his family and secure in his faith, both of which were so very important to him. Loving and cherished husband of Margaret (Peggy) for 64 years. Dear father of Jennifer and her husband Randy REESE, Janet CALLAGHAN and her partner Jeff BUTLER. He is remembered lovingly and proudly by his grandchildren Vanessa and her husband Boaz AXELRAD, Lindsey and her husband Jordan BLACK, Brendan CALLAGHAN, Courtenay WISE, Miranda CALLAGHAN, Darcy CALLAGHAN and his fiancée Taissa PRYCHODKO, and by his great-grandchildren Neeve and Kai AXELRAD and Zoe BLACK. John led a full and remarkable life that began in Newcastle upon Tyne on November 23, 1913. He joined the British Army as a very young man and rose to the rank of Major on a journey that took him to India with the Royal Horse Artillery, Singapore and Europe as well as North Africa, Iraq, Egypt and Italy during World War 2. One of John's joys later in life was the time he spent as a retiree working as a court clerk for the family court of Ontario. John learned a lot about the fine work and difficult decisions that must be wrestled with on a daily basis by the lawyers and judges in their efforts to protect a fair and just society. John never stopped learning and was always deeply interested in public affairs and international politics. Though he spent many years as a soldier, he was deeply saddened by the expansion of violence and wars throughout the world, especially the involvement of foreign troops that escalate these circumstances and expose the soldiers to unnecessary danger. A mass will be held at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church, 78 Clifton Road (at St. Clair Avenue East), on Saturday, January 29th, at 1: 30 p.m.

Pilots dead in wreckage of light plane
By Jeremy HAINSWORTH, Canadian Press, Monday, August 1, 2005, Page S2
Vancouver -- Two pilots were confirmed dead after a light aircraft missing since Thursday was spotted on the weekend on a steep hill near Squamish.
A Canadian Forces Cormorant helicopter crew found the wreckage of the King Air 200 turbo prop Saturday afternoon.
Canadian Forces Base Comox said in a statement that both occupants had died. They were Michael BLACK, 29, of Kelowna, and Michael BRACHT, 34, of Toronto.
"This is never the way to end [a search]," said Air Force 442 Squadron Captain Scott MURPHY in a release. "There were so many people working very hard and hoping to bring back good news for the families.
"Our deepest sympathy and heartfelt prayers go out to their families in their time of grief."
More than 20 aircraft had joined the search when it resumed for a third day on Saturday.
That number included Canadian Forces planes and helicopters, aircraft from Prince George-based Northern Thunderbird Air -- which operated the missing plane -- and aircraft from the volunteer Civil Air Search and Rescue Association.
Thunderbird general manager Bill HESSE offered his "deepest condolences" to the men's families.
"Our hearts and our thoughts go out to the family members that are affected by this," he said. "It's tough to imagine what they're going through right now."
Mr. HESSE said Mr. BRACHT and Mr. BLACK were single. The latter had a son.
"They were great guys and they loved to fly," Mr. HESSE added. "At each of our bases, we're gathering around and leaning on each other for support.
"It's a tough day for us here."
The plane was carrying no passengers or freight when it left Vancouver on Thursday morning. It was to arrive in Smithers at 10 a.m. and was reported missing when it did not arrive by 11: 30 a.m.
The terrain below the flight path was described as rugged and sparsely populated.
The search was hampered from the start as neither the search aircraft nor the search-and-rescue satellite detected a signal from the plane's emergency-locator transmitter, a Victoria Joint Rescue Co-ordination Centre spokesman said earlier.
The King Air 200 is used as a short-haul passenger aircraft throughout the province. The plane, which Thunderbird said was about 30 years old, normally seats six to eight people.
The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating.
Mr. HESSE said there had been no indication from the plane of any problems after takeoff.
"It had just come out of a refurbishment here over the winter. It was in very good shape.
"Anything we might say at this point is just pure speculation. That's not something we want to do."

MORRISSEY, Hon. Martin Thomas
Honourable Martin Thomas Joseph MORRISSEY, of London, Ontario, passed away peacefully on October 16, 2005, with his family at his side at the age of 84. Martin is survived by his loving wife of 54 years, Mary Kathleen MORRISSEY (née CROCKER,) daughter Theresa and husband Stephen JARRETT, daughter Elizabeth and husband David BLACK, son Paul and wife Mary Jo, and daughter Deidre and husband Malcolm RUDDOCK. He is survived by two sisters, Josephine BRESNAHAN (Barry's Bay) and Bernadette BELANGER (Hamilton.) Martin is predeceased by his parents, Elizabeth Agnes (née O'CONNOR) and Martin Lawrence, and siblings, Leonard, Irene, Jimmy, and Rose. Grandpa will be sadly missed by grandchildren Adam, Michael, and Peter JARRETT; Jennifer and John BLACK; Patrick, Joseph, Brendan, James, John, Peter, and Luke MORRISSEY; and Callum and Emma RUDDOCK. He will also be missed by his large extended family who were always in his thoughts and prayers. Born August 29, 1921, in Madawaska, Ontario, Martin was the youngest of seven. Because his father died before his birth, Martin and his siblings looked to eldest brother Leonard to help their mother manage the farm. Martin's childhood was filled with hard work and laughter, and the simple pleasures of the Madawaska Valley. Martin enlisted in the Royal Canadian Air Force in 1941; upon discharge in 1945, he enrolled at Osgoode Hall Law School and was called to the Ontario Bar in 1949. Martin was employed at the Toronto firm of Slaght, Ferguson, Boland and Slaght, then in 1950 moved to London, joining the firm of Little Calder, which became Little, Morrissey, Gillespie and Reeves. There his practice was focussed primarily on municipal and education law, as well as civil litigation and solicitors' work. Martin was appointed Queen's Counsel in 1974 and served as President of the Middlesex Bar Association (1975). In 1980 Martin was appointed to the bench serving in County Court and District Court of Ontario (Peel Region) until 1994. Martin served his community through many organizations, including Clarkson Community Volunteers (1993-01), Credit Valley Hospital (Board of Directors, 1981-84), St. Leonard's House (Board of Directors, 1972-74), St. Leonard's Society of Canada (1972-75), House of Providence for Senior Citizens (Marian Villa) (Board Chair, 1960-62), Irish Benevolent Society (President, 1959-60), Canadian Federation of Newman Clubs (Vice President 1949-50), Knights of Columbus (Member, Fourth Degree), and the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Ontario (London Chapter) and Ontario Credit Union League (Honorary Solicitor). In 2001 Martin and Mary returned to London to be closer to family and Cedar Shadows, the Port Franks cottage that is a cherished legacy for his family. Martin was singularly proud of his family, from his wife's artistic talents and his children's professional accomplishments, to his grandchildren's educational and sports achievements, and his family is so proud of what Martin accomplished through hard work and determination. Visitation will be held at James A. Harris Funeral Home, 220 St. James St. at Richmond, London, on Thursday, October 20 from 2-4 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. The funeral Mass will be celebrated at St. Michael's Church, 515 Cheapside St. at Maitland, London, on Friday, October 21 at 11 a.m. (private interment). Thanks to all who have supported Martin and his family over the last three years, particularly Dr. SWIFT and the staff in the Palliative Care Unit at London Health Sciences Centre, the staff at the Adam Linton Dialysis Unit, the staff at the London Regional Cancer Centre, and the Cancer Society volunteer drivers; also, we want to thank all of the caring St. Elizabeth nurses and personal support workers (particularly Sam, Bob, Nick, and Mike), and the staff of Sir Adam Beck Condominium. As an expression of sympathy, memorial donations may be made to Sisters of St. Joseph Hospitality Centre, 707 Dundas Street, London, Ontario N5W 2Z5, or the Canadian Cancer Society.

LAWLER, John H.
It is with deep sadness that the family of John LAWLER announce his sudden passing on November 28, 2005. John will be greatly missed by his father Herb, brother David (June) and nephews John and Andrew, sisters Ann (Fred VATNSDAL,) Elizabeth (Robert) and nephews Fraser, Gordon and Robbie BRUCE, and Jane (Jamie) and nephew Riley BLACK. John was predeceased by his mother Betty in October 2004. John was born in Winnipeg on July 22, 1952. He had a happy childhood in London, Ontario, a wonderful high school year spent in Sweden and countless summers at Heming Lake in Northern Manitoba. Before embarking on his teaching career, John worked for many years with Canadian Pacific Rail as a crane operator on the steel gang. John was a born teacher. He came to the profession later in life and embraced it with an incredible passion. John was the head of the English Department at Daniel McIntyre Collegiate Institute in Winnipeg. John's own accomplishments were many (Gold medalist at the University of Winnipeg, near completion of a Masters in English), but he preferred to focus on those of his students. He always said that he learned as much from his students as they did from him. John put his heart and soul into his work and was involved in every aspect of school life photographer, fundraiser, archivist, grad organizer, year book advisor, cricket coach, dance chaperone and sports team supporter. In the words of a former student he was 'the school's biggest fan'. John somehow managed to find time beyond school for his many and varied interests. He had a lifelong interest in books (John even outfitted his Canadian Pacific rail car with books to share with his co-workers), antiques, cooking, art and history, cars, the railway and finance, to name just a few. Flowers are gratefully declined. In honour of John's memory and to benefit those students he loved so much, donations may be made to the Alumni, Athletic, Cultural and Education Fund Inc. c/o Daniel McIntyre Collegiate Institute, 720 Alverstone Street, Winnipeg, Manitoba, R3E 2H1. A memorial service will be held on Friday, December 2, 2005 at 2: 00 p.m. in the Thomson Funeral Home 669 Broadway, in Winnipeg. Thomson Funeral Home 204-783-7211

Murray COOPER lived 'to be a star'
Acted as female impersonator
He was also a nightclub owner
By Debra BLACK, Staff Reporter
It's rare that your first and only acquaintance with someone is when he is dying. But that's how I met Murray COOPER.
He was dying at Toronto's Grace Health Centre's palliative care unit. And I was there to write a story about dying. And yet when I think about COOPER, I don't think so much of his weak and fragile body, but more about his spirit and exuberance for living.
I will always have this image of COOPER strutting down the halls of the palliative care unit on the sixth floor getting ready for his 55th birthday party. It was a Friday night late last year. On another occasion, he might have been holding court at a club. But on this night, his Friends were coming to celebrate at the hospital and balloons hung from the ceiling of the lounge. He wore a blue embroidered caftan and woolly socks, and he refused to use his walker.
"Darling," he said as I approached him on the night of his party. "You look fabulous."
"So do you," I said.
COOPER was a truly unusual man: a well-known Toronto stylist, a female impersonator and a nightclub owner. He died last Thursday at the palliative care unit at Toronto's Grace Health Centre.
Everything about him was larger than life. "I always wanted to be a star," he said when interviewed late last year.
For the past two weeks, he hovered close to death as the ravages of liver disease, hepatitis C and diabetes continued to take their toll, said friend, singer and actress Dinah CHRISTIE.
One night, he turned blue, had only a weak pulse and was hardly breathing. Staff at the Grace thought it was the beginning of the end. They called CHRISTIE. She came immediately and watched over him, held his hand and spent the night and the morning serenading him with a little song she had written him to help ease the pain.
Then she switched gears and sang every Judy Garland song she had ever known, including "Meet Me In St. Louis."
The music revived COOPER. He suddenly sat up and began talking to CHRISTIE and another friend. He lived miraculously for another week, CHRISTIE said in an interview Sunday as she packed up his apartment.
When he finally died last Thursday, he lay wrapped in a blue-green pashmina and was surrounded by pictures of angels. The staff at the Grace sat with him until he took his last breath.
He had hoped to winter one more time in his former home of Eleuthera in the Bahamas but had come to grips with the fact he was dying.
"The grand thing is I have no regrets," he said when interviewed about his impending death. "I have cirrhosis of the liver, diabetes and hepatitis C. Any one of those could kill me. Now it's finally caught up to me and I've resigned myself to it. You can't really fight it. You can medicate it. You can slow it down. You can just be very nice to it. But that's about it."
For CHRISTIE, life without her friend won't be the same.
She recalls one of her favourite moments with him back in the mid-1980s. They were in Calgary shopping. Some of the locals were shocked by COOPER's attire. He was dressed in an off-white muumuu and had short dyed blond hair with rhinestone blue studded eyeglasses. As CHRISTIE retells it: two very tall cowboys walked by and looked COOPER up and down. CHRISTIE expected a scene. But instead the cowboys broke out into a fit of giggles, obviously enjoying COOPER's flamboyant clothing.
"They let go of their façade and I could see two very gay cowboys," said CHRISTIE. "I loved that."
Another favourite memory of hers involves another shopping trip, this time on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills. COOPER was mistaken for Elton John, CHRISTIE said. A flock of very chic kids came up to him and asked for his autograph. Later, when CHRISTIE asked him what he'd written, he told her he'd signed his name as Amelia Earhart. It was perfect Murray, she said. Perfect.
COOPER leaves behind his elderly parents, his brother and his devoted dog, which has been adopted by one of the Grace staff.
No service is to be held. But COOPER was cremated and his ashes will be spread in Eleuthera at the end of January.

Special Investigations Unit names man killed by police following chase
Police say man, 21, fled van on foot
Shot at least twice behind warehouse
By Jim WILKES, Staff Reporter
The province's Special Investigations Unit has identified the man shot dead by York Region police as Jeffery BLACK, 21, of Toronto.
BLACK was one of three men who police say ran from officers who answered a break-in alarm in a Markham industrial area shortly before midnight on Monday.
The trio had fled the scene on Esna Park Dr. in a stolen minivan, which crashed into another van just a block away.
The three suspects jumped from the minivan and fled on foot. One man was captured immediately and another arrested an hour later.
BLACK ran north on Alden Rd., near Woodbine Ave. and Steeles Ave. E., where he became involved in a struggle with an officer behind a warehouse and was shot at least twice. He was dead on arrival at Scarborough Grace Hospital.
The Special Investigations Unit announced yesterday it has added five witness officers to its list of those to be interviewed by investigators. It had already named one subject officer and one witness officer in the case.
The unit is also withholding the results of Tuesday's autopsy on BLACK.
"There's some information from there, specifically the number of shots fired and where Mr. BLACK suffered these wounds, that are all part of the investigation," Special Investigations Unit spokeswoman Rose BLISS said.
"We won't disclose that publicly until we've had a chance to conduct some officer interviews."
BLISS said an Special Investigations Unit team of seven investigators, including three forensic identification technicians, is attempting to secure video from surveillance cameras mounted on industrial buildings in the area.
The Special Investigations Unit probes all cases where contact between civilians and police results in serious injury or death.
Anyone with information can contact the Special Investigations Unit at 416-622-2150 or 1-800-787-8529.

Boy's home drew noise complaints
East-end home where body was found drew noise complaints
By Debra BLACK, Staff Reporter With files from Dale Anne FREED
Neighbours of 12-year-old Jamie CHAVEZ, whose body was discovered in the basement by his brother, had lodged a number of complaints with the city's housing agency about noise, rowdiness and lack of adult supervision at his east-end home.
Complaints had been made to Cityhome, Toronto's non-profit housing agency, in May and June, said a complainant who asked not to be identified.
"I called many times," he said, adding three households complained.
They were told nothing could be done. "We were concerned about the noise, the carrying on, kids not going to school, the lack of respect for the standards of the neighbourhood, those standards simply being quiet.
"Nobody gets upset with kids playing, but basketball in the street at midnight is ridiculous. And a gang of 10 kids on the porch being loud. If my door is shut and my television is on and I can still hear them across the street, it's too loud."
And now, he said with a quaver in his voice, one of the street's children is dead. It's too awful to contemplate, he said. "It's one of our kids. One of our children on our street. Dead."
Jamie CHAVEZ was found dead early Friday morning in a bin or barrel in the basement of his family's Coady Ave. home. Cause of death has not yet been determined. An autopsy was inconclusive.
"We're still in the process of pursuing further testing," said coroner Dr. Trevor GILLMORE.
Neighbour Louise COLE said Jamie had been reported missing to police at about 1: 30 a.m. by his mother Karen CHAVEZ after she found him missing when she got home from work. CHAVEZ had first called COLE and asked if Jamie was there. COLE said he wasn't.
When police arrived the first time they searched the house and found no sign of the boy.
After they left, COLE told Jamie's brother, Abel, 18, to check the shed in the backyard. He went to the basement for a screwdriver to break the lock on the shed and found his brother's body, COLE said.
CHAVEZ then called the police again, she said.
Yesterday, the family home appeared virtually abandoned except for a couple of bicycles locked to the porch railing and a pumpkin propped on a white plastic chair.
Neighbours say CHAVEZ lived there with her eldest son Abel, Jamie, two sisters -- Vanessa, 16, and Veronica, 14 -- and two teenage cousins. An 18-year-old friend of Abel's had also been living there for six months. CHAVEZ had recently separated from her husband, Alex, and was working nights at a packaging and labelling factory, said COLE's husband, Ronald.
But not everyone on the street had complaints about the family or noise. Other neighbours described the family as "nice" and weren't concerned about the loud music or late-night gatherings on the front porch.
"The kids were not bad," said Helen CULLEN, a pensioner who lives down the street. Often she would see the children playing road hockey, she said.
"They're just like other kids... they were a bunch of teenagers. What do you expect? (Jamie) was polite. He was not a bad kid. He never sassed you or anything. The mother did a good job with them."
Elise PARENT, who also lives nearby, didn't know the family well, but said she wasn't bothered by the teens hanging out.
"You could see a family, a single mother and a lot of kids, not flowing in money," said PARENT. "It was a hangout for kids in the neighbourhood. They would hang out until 1 in the morning. They were good people. They never made any trouble."
Throughout the day, police officers came and went from the house, continuing their probe.
Flowers and cards of condolences were placed lovingly behind the police tape at the foot of the lawn.
One card read: "Sorry for your loss. But he will still live on in our hearts. From Matthew, Daniel and Sarah."
A mother and son brought red roses and a cross with the Lord's Prayer written on it.
They placed it on the lawn and then stopped to look at the other bouquets, cards and candles. The boy had attended school with Jamie -- they were in some classes together, his mother said.
Later, a former employer of Jamie's father, Alex, came by to pay his respects.
He placed a bouquet of flowers on the lawn and shook his head in dismay.
"I didn't know the kids or the family," said Cam YOUNG, adding Alex worked for him as a mechanic for a number of years. They haven't been in touch recently, but he felt moved to do something.
"Alex is a nice, nice man. Very soft-spoken.... I just read about it in the paper. It's a tragedy."
