Police treating death of boy as 'suspicious'
By Jered STUFFCO With a report from Oliver MOORE, Saturday, October 29, 2005, Page A22
Screams echoed through a quiet east-end neighbourhood early yesterday after the body of a 12-year-old boy was discovered in the basement of his family home.
An autopsy failed to reveal the cause of death. Although homicide officers were leading the investigation last night, the death is being treated officially as "suspicious."
Family Friends identified the boy as Jaimie CHAVEZ, a Grade 7 pupil at St. Joseph Elementary School.
While neighbours close to the family said Jaimie was found inside a large bin with foam on his mouth, coroner Trevor GILLMORE would not speculate on what killed the boy.
When asked why the death was being treated as suspicious, Dr. GILLMORE said, "Any death of this nature, involving a young person, we will treat it as a suspicious death."
Around 1: 40 a.m. yesterday, police at 55 Division received a call about a missing boy, police spokeswoman Isabelle COTTON said.
Less than two hours later, officers found Jaimie's body in the basement of the Coady Avenue house he lived in with his mother, Karen, and three siblings: Veronica, 14, Vanessa, 16, and Abel, who neighbours said turned 18 yesterday.
"We were wakened by screams and shouts," said Mark HENRY, who lives across the street and saw the boy's family gathering outside his window. "It was terrible. They were out in the street, screaming and crying. It was like nothing else I've ever heard."
Neighbour Louise COLE said she received a frantic phone call from the boy's mother late Thursday. "She says, 'Louise, have you seen Jaimie?' "
Later that night, Ms. COLE told Abel CHAVEZ to check his family's back shed and see whether the boy was hiding inside.
The shed was locked, and when Abel CHAVEZ went to his basement to get a screwdriver so he could crack open the latch on the shed's door, he made the grisly discovery, Ms. COLE said.
That's when Abel spotted the bin.
"He gave it a kick, opened the bin, and there was his brother."
Then, Ms. COLE heard what she described as an "ungodly scream."
"He was a sweet little boy with dark hair," she said, speaking to reporters on her front porch near Queen Street East and Carlaw Avenue yesterday.
Neighbours said the family had been living on the street for about five years.
Ms. COLE said that the boy's father, who drives a souped-up white Cadillac, runs a mechanic's shop on Sinnott Road in Scarborough and does not live with the rest of the family.
Yesterday afternoon, teachers and students from Jaimie's school gathered at St. Joseph's Church to mourn his death at a one-hour ceremony.
Father Frank WAGNER led the service and said, "It was a real shock. We're trying to help the students and staff cope with this loss."

Body of boy, 12, found in basement
Family engulfed in pre-dawn horror
By Scott SIMMIE and Dale Anne FREED, Staff Reporters, Page A1
It was shortly before 3 a.m. yesterday when residents at the north end of Coady Ave. in Leslieville awoke to a horrifying sound: Guttural, almost feral, screams of shock and grief.
"Mommy, Mommy, Mommeeee," wailed a distraught girl in her teens, lying collapsed on the sidewalk. "No, Mommy, nooo!" she cried, lit both by the streetlight and the flashing red from the first police cruiser on the scene.
Inside 96 Coady Ave., the body of a 12-year-old boy had just been discovered in the basement, the body of her brother, Jamie CHAVEZ.
The cause of his death has not yet been determined. An autopsy yesterday was inconclusive.
"Information collected at this point has not given us a conclusive cause of death," coroner Dr. Trevor GILLMORE said last night.
"Further testing and investigation will be required."
Homicide detectives were monitoring the case pending definitive autopsy results, police spokesperson George CHRISTOPOULOS said last night.
Neighbour Louise COLE, who lives several houses down the block, said she heard the dead boy's older brother, Abel, 18, yell to his mother, Karen CHAVEZ, from the basement of 96 Coady: "Mom, I found him."
COLE said Abel told her he noticed a "bin" in the basement. "He gave it a kick and opened the lid and there was his brother."
The mother called police as soon as Abel found the body, COLE said. It was the second time she called police in the early-morning hours, COLE said. CHAVEZ had called police about 1: 30 a.m. when she found Jamie missing after she got home from work, COLE said. Police searched the house but found no trace of the boy, the neighbour said.
CHAVEZ had phoned COLE before she called police the first time, hoping he might be at her home, where he often visited. But she hadn't seen him.
When police left after finding nothing on the first call, COLE said, she told Abel to "go look in the (backyard) shed."
The shed was locked, and Abel went to the basement to find a screwdriver to break the lock. That's when he found his brother.
In addition to Abel, Jamie's sisters, Vanessa, 16, and Veronica, 14, two teenage cousins and an 18-year-old friend of Abel who has been living in the house for six months were also in the house Thursday night.
Another friend of Abel said he knew Jamie made it home from school. "I saw him at about 7 p.m. He was washing dishes in the kitchen," said the friend, Jermaine, who wouldn't give his last name. "He was by himself. They were in the living room. It was all cool.
"I left at about 7: 30 p.m. They were just eating chocolate cake."
CHAVEZ had separated from her husband, Alex, about two months ago and was working nights at a packaging and labelling factory to support her family, said COLE's husband, Ronald.
A mass for Jamie, a Grade 7 student at St. Joseph's Catholic school, was held yesterday at the neighbouring Catholic church. His classmates presented poems and memories, principal Anthony TACOMA said after the mass as grieving students walked by, some holding a remembrance poster about Jamie, one holding a candle. Grief counsellors, a social worker and a school psychologist were called in to help students and staff deal with the death, he said.
"He was a very well-liked boy (and) a hard-working student," said TACOMA, who had tossed a football with Jamie and his Friends the day before he died.
It was a long and difficult day on Coady Ave. yesterday.
The screams of the sister who had collapsed on the sidewalk became part of a disturbing chorus as at least two teenage boys and the mother, in utter panic, ran shrieking up and down the sidewalk.
Helter-skelter they ran, bolting frantically back and forth in any direction except toward the house from which they'd come. Within minutes, five police cars and two ambulances had arrived, along with a paramedic supervisor vehicle.
"My baby, my baby," screamed the mother with such anguish that one neighbour who heard her said she got goosebumps.
Officers quickly began cordoning off the area with yellow police tape, asking a freelance television cameraman who was videotaping on a porch across from the home to move to the far end of the one-way street.
One of the teen boys who'd been running finally stopped, exhausted and numb, and buried his head against an officer's shoulder. The policeman wrapped his arm around the boy, gently patting his back.
Another teen emerged from the neighbouring half of the semi-detached home.
"How are you doing tonight?" asked another officer, placing a hand on the boy's shoulder.
As night began to fall, police took out more yellow tape and began marking off the front yard of the home.
Asked if it was now a crime scene, an officer replied: "It always was."
Across the street, three teenage girls stood silently holding a photocopy of what appeared to be a school photo of Jamie.
"When I first heard the news I started bursting out crying," said Shaneika BECKFORD, 15. "It's really sad. I don't know why it had to happen.
"I need to know why he died. I just saw him yesterday."

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."

CURTIS, George F., O.C., O.B.C., Q.C.
Suddenly on Sunday, October 23, 2005, at his much-loved home in Vancouver, where he lived for almost 60 years. He was predeceased by his wife, Doris MARGESON, and his son Robert. Survived by his sons, John and Peter, his daughter, Joanne DUCHASTEL, and Robert's widow, Cushla, grandchildren, Catherine, Devon, and Matthew CURTIS, Jean-Pierre and Nicole DUCHASTEL and great-grandchildren, Saskia and George GILMER, and Marguerite HANNAN. He will also be remembered by Anne M.K. CURTIS, George BONNAUD, Judy ANGELSTAD, Hudson GILMER and Andrew HANNAN. Special thanks go to Deborah HAMILTON who for so long has been a reliable and constant presence in his life. Also thanks to the "Merry Wives of Allison Road" who brought much fun and caring to his final years.
Born in Stogumber, Somerset, on September 4, 1906, he was raised as a "prairie boy" in Saskatchewan and, after having studied law at the University of Saskatchewan, went to Oxford University as a Rhodes Scholar. Returning to Canada, he practised law in Regina, before becoming a professor of law at Dalhousie University from 1934-1945. Responding to the wish of the Bar of British Columbia that a law school be established in the province, the University of British Columbia appointed him the founding dean of the new law school.
Remaining active at the law school right up to his death, he has influenced the lives and careers of some of Canada's top judges, many of its distinguished teachers and thousands of its practising lawyers. At the international level, he was a delegate to four Commonwealth Education Conferences resulting in the creation of the Commonwealth Scholarships, served as a special advisor to the Government of Canada at the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea and represented the country at two United Nations Law of the Sea conferences.
Some of his other accomplishments, of which he was particularly proud, were having initiated the first program of public health insurance as a student at the University of Saskatchewan, having drafted the Farmers' Creditors Arrangement Act which saved the family farms of Dirty Thirties from rogue creditors, having been a part of the first post-war committee to revise Canadian competition policy, having encouraged and actively overseen the graduation of the first aboriginal Canadian from a law school in Canada, having been a member of the first federal electoral boundaries commission, having been the labour arbitrator who kept the Empress Hotel open in 1958, having been the one in 1953 to suggest naming the Queen Elizabeth Islands in order to reinforce Canada's Arctic claims, having been the one in 1963 to name Simon Fraser University, having helped to establish and draft the constitution of the Association of Universities and Colleagues of Canada (A.U.C.C.) and the Council of Canadian Law Deans. On a personal level, he spoke passionately of his love for the contemplative art of fly fishing.
He received many awards over his lifetime, from the Governor-General's Bronze Medal at the age of 18, to honorary degrees from several Canadian universities, to being the first recipient of the Law Society of British Columbia Award in 1986, to being named to the Order of British Columbia in 1995, and to the Order of Canada in 2004.
A funeral service will be held at St. Anselm's Anglican Church, 5210 University Boulevard, Vancouver, at 2: 00 p.m. on Wednesday, November 2, 2005. For those who wish, in lieu of flowers, donations may be made to either the Doris Curtis Memorial Scholarship or the George F. Curtis Student Endowment Fund, University of British Columbia Faculty of Law, 1822 East Mall, Vancouver, British Columbia V6T 1Z1.

STEEVES, David -- Dispatch
By Katie ROOK, Saturday, February 12, 2005 - Page M4
David STEEVES, known as the Cat Doctor, was esteemed by clients and colleagues for his knack with the animals. Even the most skittish kitties seemed to calm in his presence.
Dr. STEEVES, 36, would often take a seriously ill cat home so he could provide around-the-clock care.
If he had to leave an ailing animal at his Davenport Road feline veterinary clinic, he was known to return at 3 a.m. to check up on it.
It was Dr. STEEVES's childhood cat, Tippy, that inspired him to get into animal medicine.
Dr. STEEVES and his partner of 16 years, Malcolm GILMOUR, had three cats, including a hairless named Rogaine after the hair-loss remedy, or Rogue for short.
Dr. STEEVES worked with Annex Cat Rescue to find homes for stray cats. He offered a discount on fees for less well-to-do clients and would sometimes help to relocate cats when owners could no longer care for them.
A graduate of the Ontario Veterinary College in Guelph, Dr. STEEVES was just 25 when he took over the Cat Doctor, a pre-existing practice. Later, he returned to school part-time and earned his M.B.A. from the Rotman School of Management at the University of Toronto.
Diabetic felines were of particular interest to Dr. STEEVES. He advocated proper diet for cats with diabetes. Healthy eating for both animals and humans was important to Dr. STEEVES, who was an excellent cook, Mr. GILMOUR said.
Dr. STEEVES's cancer -- non-Hodgkin's lymphoma -- came on quickly and he expected to recover, going so far as to move the Cat Doctor to a new location on Belmont Street three months ago.
When it became apparent that he would no longer be able to practise, he closed the clinic permanently on December 31, but continued to work on files until two days before his death on January 8.

Don leaves behind his sons John, Ross, and Thomas, daughters-in-law Suzanne and Sandy, grandchildren Katie, James, Daniel, Alex, Donald, Evelyn, Christina and Sean, his sister Carol, brother-in-law Doug GOWAN and his sister-in-law Violet. Don was pre-deceased by his wife Joan, his brother Ross and his brother-in-law Michael HALICKI. Don was married to Joan Elizabeth GILMOUR in 1957. They remained married for 46 years until Joan's death in July of 2003. Don began his 48 year career in the television commercial industry in 1957. In January 1978, Don and the six other original partners incorporated as The Partners' Film Company Limited, Canada's oldest and largest production company. During his career in the film industry, he nurtured many burgeoning new talents. He also funded and helped create numerous other production, post-production and production service companies all dedicated to creating quality products. Don remained at the helm until the day before his surgery. Don always took great pride in his family. He celebrated his children's, and grandchildren's participation in sports, successes at school and in life. Don's personality and strong will lead to his success in life. He could be generous, stubborn, caring, dedicated, intense, funny, demanding, supportive, inflexible, loyal, and competitive. But mostly, he was a loving individual who sincerely cared about those around him. He was a great salesman, father, grandfather, brother, friend, mentor, employer and colleague. In other words, he was 'The Don'. No one was bigger. We will all miss him. A Memorial Service will be held at Harbourside Studios, 14 K, 915 Lakeshore Blvd. East, Toronto on Wednesday July 20th at 2: 00 pm. A private service will be announced at a later date.

GILMOUR, Clyde, 1997 -- Died This Day
Tuesday, November 8, 2005, Page S9
Writer and broadcaster born in Calgary on June 8, 1912.
After growing up in Medicine Hat, he planned to go to the University of Alberta to study law but the Depression wiped out his father's savings. He found a job with the Calgary Herald and then the Medicine Hat News, earning $20 a week. In lieu of a raise, he was offered the chance to write an entertainment column. During a summer holiday, he tried out for a reporting job at the Edmonton Journal, working without pay. He was taken on staff, where he remained until 1942, when he enlisted in the Royal Canadian Navy and served as a press officer. After the war, he went to Vancouver to work as an entertainment writer and columnist. In 1954, he moved to the Toronto Telegram, and then to the Toronto Star in 1971. In the days before film reviews were a standard part of a newspaper package, Clyde GILMOUR was Canada's only movie critic. His tastes were middle-of-the-road but suited a time when movies were still family entertainment. He continued to review films until 1983, when he finally decided that he and Hollywood were no longer meant for each other. By that time, he had long been a fixture on radio and it was through Gilmour's Albums, launched in 1956, that he found his greatest satisfaction. He broadcast 52 weeks of the year and boasted that everything he played came from his own collection of about 15,000 records and Compact Disks.

Father to three, friend to all
Bill McGILL spent career at the Star
'He was just a delight': co-worker
By Hilda HOY, Staff Reporter
Bill McGILL loved people. A family man and a community man, he took great delight in forming relationships with other people, no matter what the context.
His son, Jamie McGILL, fondly recalls a father who loved people so much, he avoided using bank machines so he could go inside and chat with the teller.
"He loved to chat people up, he was very, very well loved by so many people. He had a wonderful ability to make people feel like they were truly special."
Said daughter Patti SMITH: "He was a capital 'G' good guy. He'd do anything for anybody. He really loved doing things for other people. That's a dying breed."
In a cruel irony, the heart that gave so freely to others would trouble him for much of his later life. On Thursday, it quietly gave out. He was 83.
McGILL loved his work, and spent his entire 41-year career working in various departments at the Toronto Star.
His affiliation with the newspaper began with a boyhood paper route, followed by a part-time office boy job during high school, Jamie said. Upon graduation, he joined the Air Force and fought in World War 2.
After the war, he rejoined the Star, working in payroll before moving into display advertising.
He cherished the close-knit office and his relationships with co-workers and clients, Jamie said. "He was very proud (that) the work he did was about relationships with other people."
His father was also proud to say he worked at the Star because the paper's ethics were in line with his strong social conscience, he added.
Bill CLARK, a long-time co-worker in advertising, recalls a hardworking, congenial friend who would good-humouredly shoot a steely glare before "just giving you this huge smile. He was just a delight to work with."
"Everyone that came in touch with him liked him very much," said Jim GILMOUR, another Star veteran, who worked with McGILL for more than 30 years. "He was a wonderful friend."
McGILL was dedicated to his community -- involving himself in his church, volunteering for Meals on Wheels and as a Boy Scout leader -- but was especially devoted to his family.
He adored his wife of 59 years, Margaret, and children David, Jamie and Patti, and doted on his nine grandchildren and one great-grand_son.
Other than his war service, McGILL stayed close to home, until he surprised his wife with two tickets to Bermuda on their 25th wedding anniversary. That trip sparked a passion for travel.
In addition to yearly trips to England, the couple visited every country in the Caribbean and fell in love with Barbados, visiting more than 30 times.
"Travelling was another opportunity to meet people," said Jamie, adding his father would strike up conversations in airport lounges, hotels or taxicabs. "He established quite a large network of Friends that way."
GILMOUR spoke yesterday for many: "Those of us who are left will miss him very much."
The funeral is today at 11 a.m., Humbervale United Church, 1447 Royal York Rd., Etobicoke.
