Man shot dead visiting sick Mom
Young man who had 'no enemies' fatally shot in stairwell
Relatives and Friends grieve a man whom 'everybody liked'
By Betsy POWELL, Crime Reporter
He worked two jobs, visited his sick mother daily and had never been in trouble with the law.
And now police and 26-year-old Selvakumar SELLAIAH's grieving relatives and Friends are struggling to figure out why he was shot to death in the 17th floor stairwell of the St. Jamestown highrise where his mother and sister lived.
Residents called police around 11: 50 p.m. Tuesday to report hearing what sounded like a struggle and the sound of gunfire, homicide Det. Joel KULMATYCKI told a news conference yesterday at police headquarters. Police officers from 51 Division and emergency crews arrived within minutes and discovered SELLAIAH's body. An autopsy is scheduled for this morning.
Police are investigating whether robbery was a motive.
SELLAIAH moved to Toronto from Sri Lanka eight years ago and was a Canadian citizen. For almost two years, he had travelled across the city to work in the kitchen of Tony Pistola's, an Italian restaurant on Bloor Street W. near Royal York Rd., and recently started working in the morning at a pub on Bay St.
He lived in a bachelor apartment on Gerrard St. but was a regular visitor at the Bleecker St. building, where he came to look after his ailing mother. "That says what kind of man this is," KULMATYCKI said.
By mid-afternoon yesterday, two storeys below where the slaying occurred, his mother's 15th floor apartment had turned into a place of mourning packed with family and Friends. Some sobbed quietly, including SELLAIAH's 23-year-old sister Jayanthini. She sat slumped over on the edge of a bed, hands over her head and tears spilling onto a framed picture of her brother.
In the living room, family members tried to console SELLAIAH's tiny mother, Vadivambigh SELLAIAH, as she pounded her chest, wailed and rocked back and forth. His two brothers, Pathmakumar, 28, and Santhakumar, 25, looked dazed and shaken as they moved from room to room speaking quietly to visitors in the crowded flat filled with religious icons.
First cousin Guna NARMALAR said SELLAIAH has been a "big help" to the family, particularly since his father died three years ago. "He was friendly and had no bad habits," he said. "He has no enemies."
Co-worker Wara THGARAJAH, kitchen manager at Tony Pistola's, said he last saw SELLAIAH around 5 p.m. Tuesday. As he was leaving from his day shift, SELLAIAH was arriving. Fellow employees have told him SELLAIAH finished work in the kitchen around 10: 30, had a quick beer and left, though he wasn't exactly sure when.
Police are trying to figure out how SELLAIAH came to be in the building and don't believe he had visited his family that night.
Thgarajah called him a reliable, hard-working employee who had been working at the restaurant for about two years. "Everybody liked him, they never complain about him," he said, pausing to take a deep breath.
SELLAIAH was also recently hired to work in the kitchen of a Bay St. pub on the recommendation of a distant relative.
"He did what he was told. He had a lot of knowledge and he was very punctual, all the time opening the stores because he was the main guy opening," said the owner, who asked not to be identified.
"This morning it was unlike him not to show up... at 11: 30 I called the pub and nobody was here so I had to come down myself and open." He tracked down the family. "I called to find out if he was there and sure enough somebody answered and told me he was shot last night."
SELLAIAH was the city's ninth homicide victim.
A year ago, KULMATYCKI said he and partner Gary GIROUX investigated another homicide at a building just north of the Bleecker St. building where SELLAIAH was slain. "There is gunfire in that area and it's an unfortunate thing because the residents are sick and tired of these mutts coming in with guns."
Police are working with the Toronto Housing Authority to see if video surveillance can help solve the crime, he said.
