Victim thought stalker jailed
Man on bail shot woman, husband
'She asked for help many, many times'
By Tracy HUFFMAN, Crime Reporter
Szilvia VERES thought she was safe.
The man who had stalked her, broken into her workplace and threatened to kill her husband was in jail. If released from custody, she would be notified.
That's what the 35-year-old native of Hungary told her mother in a telephone conversation just 30 minutes before that man -- John KOVACS -- ambushed VERES and her husband in an underground parking garage in North York on February 11.
VERES was fatally shot. Her husband, Miklos KEMENCZY, survived a bullet to the head. After undergoing emergency surgery, KEMENCZY is recuperating at home and mourning the loss of his wife. Miraculously his brain is fully functioning.
KOVACS was later found dead in a Quebec hotel room of a single gunshot wound. Police believe he killed himself.
"She told me not to worry. He was in jail," VERES's mother, Janosne VERES, said while clutching a keychain with her daughter's photograph.
At the time, KOVACS, 52, was free on $1,500 bail on charges of criminal harassment and uttering death threats to KEMENCZY.
According to her mother, Szilvia VERES was told she would be called about any upcoming court dates for KOVACS or if he was applying for bail. Janosne VERES said that never happened.
"I can't understand why a judge let John KOVACS go.... Why didn't they tell Szilvia?" VERES said in Hungarian as KEMENCZY's niece, Gina GÖNCZI, translated during an interview with the Star.
Those are issues that VERES's mother said she can't understand. KEMENCZY's sister and niece, who live just outside Toronto, said they hope further investigation of the homicide will provide some answers. The coroner's office is investigating the case.
Szilvia VERES and KEMENCZY had reported KOVACS's behaviour to police several times and KOVACS was arrested three times.
Even so, "we don't think the police took her complaints seriously," said Katalin BISHOP, KEMENCZY's sister.
"Szilvia was very afraid of him."
Since she was a teenager, Szilvia VERES dreamed about moving from her small Hungarian village to Canada.
"I don't know why, but that was her dream. She couldn't explain it either," Janosne VERES said, wiping tears from her eyes.
As a little girl, VERES was very sweet, her mother said. She was a happy child who liked "pretty things and pretty clothes." She loved her family and even after she moved to Canada, VERES called her mother every day.
She enjoyed reading and would often write poems. She loved to cook, especially exotic foods, her mother said. She loved her husband -- they married in a private ceremony in November -- and they were a very happy couple, family members said.
"She was very good-hearted, good-natured. She never caused anyone any harm," Janosne VERES said.
In December 2001, Szilvia VERES realized her life-long dream and moved to Toronto.
Her mother didn't want her to go, but she left her family behind, for a country where she knew no one.
"She wanted to become a citizen and then bring me here to visit, to see all the sites," Janosne VERES said.
Szilvia VERES worked several jobs to support herself, eventually finding enjoyment caring for an elderly woman, whose family treated her like one of their own, Janosne VERES said.
"She was happy here."
Szilvia VERES's dream of a happy life changed when she met KOVACS over coffee. The meeting turned into a very brief relationship. She moved in with him, her mother said, but moved out two days later. That was about a year ago.
"She couldn't even stand to touch his hand. She did not like him," Janosne VERES said.
After she moved out, VERES told family members she was afraid of KOVACS.
KOVACS began to stalk VERES. He threatened to kill her. After he was arrested, VERES and KEMENCZY thought they were safe.
"I can't understand why she wasn't protected. She asked for help many, many, times," Janosne VERES said. The system failed her daughter and son-in-law, VERES said.
"Fifteen hundred dollars (bail)? Is that all she was worth?" BISHOP asked.
Janosne VERES has limited means, so she borrowed the money for an airplane ticket and made the journey to Canada from Hungary to attend her daughter's funeral and to try to find some answers.
Her husband and son could not join her because of the financial burden it would put on the family.
"They are very hurt they couldn't be here," VERES said. She was to return to Hungary yesterday with half her daughter's ashes KEMENCZY has the other half.
Dr. Barry McLELLAN, Ontario's chief coroner, said several issues must be examined in VERES's death. One of them would be whether she was told of KOVACS's bail.
"We will look at all the issues," he said, adding the review is standard when a case involves domestic violence. "An inquest is being considered."
The coroner has called inquests into deaths relating to domestic violence in the past, but McLELLAN said that doesn't eliminate the possibility of an inquest in this case.
During the review, McLELLAN said the committee will collect all relevant information, including KOVACS's criminal background, any previous history of violence and any direction given by courts.
At the end of the process, the coroner will decide whether or not to call an inquest. "We take these issues very seriously. And there's a combination of issues here," McLELLAN said.
On February 11, VERES spoke to her mother for the last time.
She told her mother she wanted to return to Hungary to visit her family as soon as she became a Canadian citizen.
Janosne VERES asked her daughter about KOVACS.
"She hadn't talked about John for a long time. She said, 'Don't mention him. He is a nightmare.'"
She told her mother not to worry.
"She thought he was in jail. She thought she was safe."
Thirty minutes later, Szilvia VERES was dead.

'Mac' led heady days at CHUM
Disk Jockey Bob McADOREY as popular as music
'Bon vivant' later a Global television fixture
By Jim BAWDEN, Television COLUMNIST
Bob McADOREY helped usher in radio's rock 'n' roll era and set the musical agenda for a generation of Toronto teens.
Few today realize the power that Disk Jockeys like McADOREY exerted over Toronto popular culture 40 years ago, when radio ruled. It was a cozy time for music -- and then CHUM entered the fray, blew the cobwebs away and ushered in the crazy days of rock broadcasting.
McADOREY, 69, died Saturday at St. Catharines' Hotel Dieu hospital after a long illness.
McADOREY grew up in Niagara Falls and attended Stamford Collegiate, also the alma mater of Titanic director James CAMERON. He was in the same graduating class as Barbara FRUM, the legendary Canadian Broadcasting Corporation-television interviewer.
As a teen, McADOREY won a province-wide public speaking contest and was the popular president of his high school fraternity.
He also played ragtime piano.
"Crowds would go around him," said his older brother, Terry McADOREY.
McADOREY's radio career started in 1953 when the Niagara Falls native first signed on with CHVC near the Falls, introducing listeners to his unique style of easy-going patter.
"I looked like Buddy Holly back then," McADOREY told the Toronto Star in a 1981 interview. "I weighed about 95 pounds and we played songs like 'Que Sera Sera.' Everything was a lot softer, smoother then."
After additional stops in London, Guelph, Hamilton and Dawson Creek, McADOREY wound up at Toronto's CHUM, coaxed to climb aboard by resident star Disk Jockey Al BOLISKA.
"I'd lived with Al above a variety store in London and he kept telling me to come to CHUM. I asked for $600 a month, after all Gordie TAPP was making $100 a week, and to my surprise I got the job."
Starting in 1960, McADOREY began a stint that many people consider rock programming at its finest: brash, spontaneous and pretty wild. And the Disk Jockeys were the stars.
CHUM became the rock station to listen to and McADOREY was the man who told you if a song was going places. The guy who hung out with The Beatles and The Stones when they were in town (and introduced them from the stage) was known simply as "Mac."
For years, he hosted the all-important 4 to 7 p.m. slot. CHUM's chart of the week's top records was posted everywhere: in record stores and high school lockers. Eaton's and Simpson's would only stock those 45s that were on the CHUM list. When a new record called "The Unicorn" came in, McADOREY liked it so much he immediately put it on the air and it sold 140,000 copies in Canada in two weeks and made The Irish Rovers.
Thinking back on those heady days, McADOREY said, "We kept it all clean up here. There was no payola as in the U.S. and we deliberately helped a lot of Canadians. It was personality radio. We were promoted like crazy back then. And the pressures were unbelievable. We dictated what records were going to go. And what kids would eat, drink.
"I could have written five books about what happened at CHUM. There'd be one book if I saved my memos. The most frightening thing was the British invasion. There weren't enough cops to handle the crowds -- it was out of control."
Off the air, he was a bon vivant, said 72-year-old Terry McADOREY.
"We did a lot of drinking. He was a good friend of Ronnie HAWKINS."
In 1968, the CHUM deal fizzled. When owner Al WATERS brought in American consultants, McADOREY felt the business was becoming too heavily formatted and left.
McADOREY headed to CFGM in Richmond Hill, which was trying to invade Toronto with a country music format. As morning man, he energized the station. He moved to CFTR in 1970 and after a few years returned to CFGM.
A constant listener was Bill CUNNINGHAM, head of Global television news, and he asked McADOREY to contribute satirical bits, which eventually became a full-time job.
Sample segment: during an airline strike McADOREY headed out to Terminal 2 with bowling equipment and pins to demonstrate the building was only of use as a bowling alley. Royal Canadian Mounted Police officers saw nothing funny in this and whisked him out as the piece was being filmed.
Another time during a city campaign to get dog owners to scoop up deposits, McADOREY and a cameraman went out to do field tests, which consisted of chasing terrified dogs whose owners had failed the test.
By 1980, he was entertainment editor. In 1983, Global tried to fire him when he disagreed over assignments. Global's Three Guys at noon telecast was a big hit (the others: Mike Anscombe and John Dawe) and hundreds of daily phone calls forced management to reconsider. For a time, Global even outperformed Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's Midday.
McADOREY later got his own afternoon entertainment show where he'd report from movie junkets and comment on the entertainment scene.
I last chatted with him in 2000 when he was railing against Global's retirement-at-65 rule. But he looked frail and had been off for months after a fainting attack.
McADOREY had a farm at Gormley and a place in Niagara-on-the-Lake. Despite his television success he still yearned for the golden days of radio: "I'd walk into the booth in pyjama tops and jeans and talk one-on-one to people. At least that's the way I always imagined it."
McADOREY leaves daughter Colleen, her husband Jim TATTI, a Global sports broadcaster, and four grandchildren.
He was predeceased by his wife Willa, daughter Robin and son Terry.
A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. Thursday at St. Patrick's Church in Niagara Falls.

Lynn KING: Protector of youths' rights
Justice Lynn KING became known for the human touch
As a lawyer, was an advocate for women during divorce
By Gabe GONDA, Staff Reporter, Page B5
Justice Lynn KING was a forceful and humane ally of young people caught up in the chaos of the legal system.
From her bench in the courts of 311 Jarvis Street, KING delivered sometimes tough, often compassionate justice in family matters and to a generation of young offenders, once challenging the provincial government on their behalf.
KING was appointed a judge in 1986 after a distinguished career in family law that led her to write What Every Woman Should Know About Marriage, Separation And Divorce. The book was published in 1980 and solidified its author's reputation as a leading advocate of women's rights during a time of rising divorce rates.
She died of breast cancer on Friday at the age of 60.
Born in Sudbury on April 19, 1944, to Harry WAISBERG, a lawyer and alderman, and his wife Madelaine, KING left home before her final year of high school to attend Toronto's Branksome Hall. She was one of two Jewish girls in her class.
KING studied economics at the University of Toronto and returned to her alma mater for a law degree after getting an M.A. at the Fletcher School for Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University in Boston.
After graduating, KING went into practice with then-husband Greg KING and Paul COPELAND. In 1976, she formed a partnership with Harriet SACHS, later a colleague in family court.
When KING was appointed to the bench, she quickly made an impact in the area that would define her career as a judge: the rights of young people who found themselves on the wrong side of the law.
In July 1988, KING ruled that a 15-year-old Toronto boy's Charter rights had been violated because he wasn't offered a chance to write an essay or do other forms of community work to pay for his crime. KING was challenging the province to offer teens alternative sentencing options, which were being provided by other provinces under the Young Offenders Act. That ruling was overturned on appeal.
When KING wasn't occupied with high-profile constitutional cases, she was developing the human touch that made her a role model to her judicial colleagues and the lawyers who argued before her.
Justice Brian WEAGANT ran a youth legal clinic before serving beside KING as a judge. He remembers a case in the late 1980s in which a teen he was representing had been charged with assault after defending his sister during a scuffle in a store.
The teen, who'd recently moved with his family from South America, wanted to plead guilty, so WEAGANT advised him to put on his best clothes before going to court to see KING.
"He and his family went to the Salvation Army and got him a tuxedo, which he wore to court. Judge KING was just totally disarmed by this and she ended up discharging him. Sure enough, he was never in trouble again," WEAGANT said.
Justice SACHS described the young man in the tuxedo as "one of thousands" touched by KING's interventions.
On the side, KING wrote book reviews for the Toronto Star.
Her husband, novelist M.T. KELLY, said her interests remained varied to the end. During her final weeks, she entertained herself by watching the Gomery inquiry and listening to rapper Eminem, a habit that amused her sons, Jonah and Max.
"She was beautiful," KELLY said.
A service will be held today at the Mount Pleasant Cemetery Chapel at 3 p.m.

City records 59th homicide of '05
41 gun killings this year surpass number in any other year
Latest victim, part of triple fatal shooting, dies yesterday
By Betsy POWELL and Tracy HUFFMAN, Crime Reporters with files from Gabe GONDA
The summer of the gun has become the year of the gun.
Even though it is only September, Toronto has already recorded more fatal shootings in 2005 than in any other year. That number includes a rare triple fatal shooting after one of three people hit by a barrage of bullets on Friday died yesterday.
Of the 59 homicides so far this year, 41 have involved a firearm. That easily surpasses the previous high of gun killings set in 1991, when 35 of the city's 88 slayings were gun-related. Perhaps encouragingly, the number of firearm slayings plummeted the following year to five out of 60 homicides.
Last year, 27 of the 64 homicides were shootings.
Police believe gang violence is behind much of the unprecedented amount of bloodshed tied to guns.
Just last Friday, four people were gunned down in two separate attacks that police say appeared to be related to drug dealing, not gangs. A survivor from Friday night's shooting on Tandridge Cres., Shane JAMES, 26, died yesterday afternoon at Sunnybrook hospital. He had been fighting for his life since the incident outside an apartment building near Albion and Weston Rds., at about 9: 20 p.m.
Joseph SANTOS, 25, and Donald RAWLUCK, 24, were pronounced dead at the scene. Early Friday morning, Rondell CALLISTE, 20, was shot to death in a parkette in Parkdale. Police think he had been lured there for a drug deal.
There have been no arrests in the cases -- and many of this year's firearm slayings remain unsolved. There have also been scores of non-fatal shootings this year where criminal charges have not been laid.
With so many gunmen walking the streets, Staff Insp. Jeff McGUIRE, head of the homicide squad, said the obvious implication is there is a greater availability of handguns -- the preferred firearm of choice for Toronto killers. He also pointed to lenient bail and sentencing by the courts for people accused and convicted of gun crimes.
"There doesn't seem to be a strong deterrent factor that's making these people afraid to carry guns," he said yesterday. "They're not afraid to carry guns and when they make bail, they go out and get another gun."
Police say revenge, mixed with drug trafficking, is at the root of most of the shootings by gang members.
Toronto police are hoping they can reverse the tide of deadly gunfire by redeploying officers into troubled neighbourhoods and by targeting individual gangs. They did that last week with Project Flicker, a law-enforcement crackdown that rounded up several dozen suspects police say belong to a Rexdale gang.
At city hall yesterday, Mayor David MILLER said he wants to expand to seven the number of low-income, high-crime neighbourhoods covered under the city's community safety plan.
MILLER will today ask the policy and finance committee to add Lawrence Heights, Eglinton East and Steeles to a list of neighbourhoods that includes Malvern, Jamestown, Jane-Finch and Kingston Galloway.
