Sport utility vehicle driver shot in Woodbridge
By Morgan CAMPBELL, Staff Reporter
A man found shot to death in a car outside a Woodbridge optometrist's office Wednesday night has been identified as 58-year-old Vincenzo RACO of Brampton.
RACO was in the driver's seat of a Ford Freestyle sport utility vehicle at about 8 p.m. Wednesday, stopped in the parking lot of a medical professionals' building on Islington Ave., just north of Highway 7.
According to police, witnesses: saw a man approach RACO's car just before hearing gunshots.
The man then ran through the parking lot to a waiting car, a small dark Honda or Acura, which then sped north on Islington, said Det. Sgt. Bill SADLER of the York Region police.
Police wouldn't say whether the shooter was inside the car with RACO, but the car's windows didn't appear to have been damaged.
An autopsy was scheduled for yesterday afternoon.
Police planned to take RACO's car to their Newmarket headquarters for more examination.
RACO's slaying is York Region's first homicide of 2005. Although he lived in Brampton, RACO was known to York Region police, SADLER said, although he wouldn't elaborate.
A woman who answered the door at RACO's home said the family would not speak to the media.
Many of the building's businesses were still open when the shooting occurred.
Yesterday morning at least 15 vehicles still sat in the building's parking lot, stranded there overnight and sealed in with police crime scene tape.
Police had also blocked the parking lot of the church next door to the building.
Most offices in the building were closed yesterday morning. As patients arrived, building manager Natalie ERAMO greeted them and asked them to reschedule their appointments.
She has dropped by the building at least twice a day for the last five years and has never seen an incident like this one.
"Are you serious? This is a medical building," she said. "I've had someone slip before, but that's about it."
While ERAMO was speaking, investigators sifted through the snow for clues, shuffling along Willis Rd., and along the banks of the nearby East Humber River.
Minutes later Rosie SATILLE- MINELLI emerged from behind police lines. She knew nothing of the shooting until she arrived for her 8: 30 a.m. shift as a secretary at a physiotherapist's office.
Although the building was closed she said police let her in so she could phone patients and reschedule appointments.
"I didn't figure (a shooting) would happen here," said SATILLE- MINELLI, pointing out that the office building is just metres away from an apartment building for seniors. "It's a little too close to home."
Police are looking for a "person of interest" described as male, 5-foot-11 and clean-shaven. That night he wore a hooded winter coat and a dark toque.
They would also like to speak with anyone who had contact with RACO between 7: 15 and 8 p.m. Wednesday.
Police ask anyone with information to call the York Region Homicide Bureau at 1-866-287-5025 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

Hospice protester succumbs to Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome
By John MINER, Free Press Health Reporter
Ten days after his treatment sparked a protest against management of a London A.I.D.S. hospice, Dennis COSTELLO has died.
"I knew myself that this would be really hard on him, but it made him feel like somebody loved him and the world wasn't such a bad place," said COSTELLO's younger brother, Larry.
Dennis COSTELLO, 53, was a longtime resident of the John Gordon Home in London, but ran into conflict with the home's management earlier this year.
At one point, the home cut off air conditioning and banned family visits.
He took his case to the Ontario Rental Housing Tribunal, the province's rental watchdog, which ordered the John Gordon Home to immediately install air conditioning for COSTELLO and remove all barriers to his visitors.
Breathing with the help of an oxygen tube, COSTELLO participated in a protest July 13 when about 20 people marched silently in front of the Pall Mall Street home, carrying placards calling for the firing of senior management.
Larry COSTELLO said the root of the problem between his brother and management of the home was a personality conflict.
"Dennis was a strong personality. If you gave him any respect at all, he would do the world for you," he said.
"He was the guy who sent everyone birthday cards, every niece, every nephew. That's the kind of person he was."
Dennis worked for Canada Post in London in his twenties and was later transferred to Vancouver, where he did well until the death of his father. Larry COSTELLO believes the death triggered his brother's schizophrenia.
"He took life on his own terms and ended up on the streets at one point in Vancouver. That is when the family stepped in and we went out to Vancouver and found him and took him to the hospital. He was really sick with Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome at that point and almost died."
The family brought him back to London and the John Gordon Home. There he bounced back, but still faced challenges, Larry COSTELLO said.
"He had to struggle his whole life. Living with Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome and being a homosexual, you are not as accepted as anybody else. He had a hard road."
COSTELLO was taken to University Hospital on July 17, suffering from pneumonia. On Friday, he took a turn for the worse and died the following day surrounded by family.
He is to be buried today following a 10 a.m. funeral mass at St. Peter's Basilica.
Larry COSTELLO said he would like his brother to be remembered for trying to make a difference.

HAWKINS, George S.
Born at Lake Egmont, Nova Scotia, July 16, 1924, died on September 24, 2005, in Halifax. son of Charles and Nellie HAWKINS, sister of Edith (William MINGO,) husband of Nancy (née MOIR, d. 1978,) father of George (Anne, d.), Robert (Margaret), Sean, Michael (Kathryn), and Nancy, grandfather of Stephanie, Amy, Christie, Nicholas, Matthew, Alexandra, and Hannah. He died of cancer that was only detected after a series of small strokes at the end of August. He will be missed by his family, all of whom were able to be with him in his last days. He was, among many other things in his life, a lawyer, businessman and political activist. He experienced success in these fields, but his greatest enthusiasm was for life itself. He had a fine appreciation of food and a highly developed sense of style, which ranged from his personal dress to his love of art, architecture (especially English and French cathedrals) and furnishings. A vibrant man, in his early years he loved sailing (a taste he acquired during his service in the Royal Canadian Navy where he served in the Volunteer Reserve as a Sub-Lieutenant during the Second World War) but in later decades preferred running (especially around Point Pleasant Park well into his seventies) and swimming (along the beaches of the Atlantic Ocean up until the end of this past summer). He had a tremendous fascination with both words and the world they are used to describe, which drew him to read a wide range of dictionaries (especially the Oxford English Dictionary), international newspapers, and non-fiction throughout his life. In later years he learned to read a foreign language and followed the media in France closely, consuming everything from the tabloid press to the serious weeklies. A resident of Halifax for over half a century, he was a strong supporter of many of its public institutions, including Neptune Theatre (of which he was a Life Director) and the Halifax Infirmary. In later years he took a particular interest in tracing the ancestry of his father's family back to Lawrencetown, and at the end of his life he chose to be buried not far from where his father had begun his life, ever close to the ocean he so enjoyed yet not far from the city that was his home. The visitation will take place at J.A. Snow Funeral Home, 2666 Windsor Street, Halifax from 2 to 4 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m. on Wednesday September 28. The funeral service will be held at the same venue at 11 a.m. on Thursday September 29 with a reception to follow. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Cole Harbour Heritage Society for the preservation of the Meeting House atop of the hill overlooking the harbour. A private family interment will follow at a later date.

MINGO, J. William E., C.M., Q.C., LL.M., LL.D.
Died at Halifax on Friday, November 25, 2005. Bill was born at Halifax on November 25, 1926. He was the son of Lt. Col. Edgar W. and Lila Theresa (McMANUS) MINGO. At the time of his death, Bill was preparing for a family dinner that evening to celebrate his 79th birthday. During his remarkable life, Bill received a wealth of personal and professional recognition for his dedicated and distinguished service to his profession, to business, to education and to his community, province and country. He received his early education at Saint Thomas Aquinas and at Saint Mary's Boys School. Bill graduated from Dalhousie University with a Bachelor of Arts in 1947 and a Bachelor of Laws in 1949. He was the Gold Medallist of his graduating law class. Following completion of a Master's degree at Columbia University, he returned to Nova Scotia and was admitted to the Bar in 1950. At the time of his death, Bill was a partner in Stewart McKelvey Stirling Scales. He practised law with that firm and its predecessors during his whole career. In the early years of his practice, Bill was known as one of the ablest civil litigators in the province. Early in his career his practice changed to corporate and commercial law, for which he is best known. Quite apart from a career as an outstanding corporate lawyer, Bill was a leader within his firm. He served as managing partner for many years and was the driving force behind the merger that lead to the formation of Atlantic Canada's first regional and largest law firm. He also applied his considerable talent to promoting legal education and research and advocating on behalf of low income Nova Scotians. He was instrumental in establishing the Law Foundation of Nova Scotia, which supports legal education, research and law reform, as well as court services for women and shelters for women and children who have been the victims of domestic violence. In addition, he is nationally recognized as one of the founders of legal aid in Nova Scotia. Bill's professional career included significant contributions to local and national law associations and committees. He served as president of the Nova Scotia Barristers' Society and as a member on the Executive of the Canadian Bar Association. Bill did not restrict his activities to law and was recognized as a significant and influential force in both the local and national business communities. He helped to put Halifax on the map as one of the world's leading ports as a long time member and chair of the Halifax-Dartmouth Port Commission. He was, for many years, counsel to the Provincial Government's industrial development program which attracted many businesses to Nova Scotia, including Michelin Tire. Bill also served as a trusted business advisor to many companies in Nova Scotia including Canning Investment Corporation, Crossley Carpet Mills Limited, The Maritime Life Assurance Company, Minas Basin Pulp and Power Company Limited, Oxford Frozen Foods Limited, The Great Eastern Corporation, Maritime Tel and Tel, Maritime Steel and Foundries Limited, National Sea Products Limited and Bowater Mersey Paper Company Limited, to name a few. Peter Newman is his book, Titans, described Bill MINGO as '...the lawyer with the wonderful white mutton-chop whiskers who is the Halifax establishment's unofficial gatekeeper (while holding down directorships in nearly every important Nova Scotia company...)'. Bill's reputation as wise business counsel was not restricted to Nova Scotia but was recognized throughout the Canadian business community where his list of directorships reads like a who's who of Canadian business and includes companies such as Royal Bank of Canada, Bank of Canada, Onex Corporation, Sun Life Assurance Company of Canada and Petrofina Canada Inc., again to name but a few. Bill was an active supporter of numerous educational institutions, particularly Saint Mary's and Dalhousie Universities from which he received honorary Doctors of Laws in 1981 and 1998 respectively. He served for many years as a member of the Advisory Board of Dalhousie University Business School as well as a trustee for the Forum for Young Canadians. He served as Atlantic Chair of the Dalhousie Capital Ideas Campaign and played a critical role in raising funds for the Purdy Crawford Chair in Business Law at Dalhousie Law School. He gave untold time and energy to Dalhousie Law School and provided tremendous support through its Legal Aid Clinic and to its fundraising initiatives. In addition, he found time to chair the Saint Mary's University Capital Campaign. Bill maintained a keen interest in politics and was an active member of the National Treasury Committee and the National Executive Committee of the Liberal Party of Canada. During his exceptional career, Bill has received was particularly proud that within the last year Canada, was inducted into the Nova Scotia designated Northwood Foundation Senior of the many honours and awards but he he was appointed to the Order of Business Hall of Fame and was Year. In most recent years when his life afforded Bill more leisure time, he developed a keen interest in sports, becoming an avid skier and golfer, and also had time to savour his passion for fine wine and fine dining. In those years, Bill also savoured the ability to spend more time with Edith, his children and grandchildren. He enjoyed nothing more than their family gatherings at Grey Rocks for skiing, White Point Beach Lodge for golf and travelling the world for golf, music and dining experiences with his son, Charlie. Bill is survived by his wife of 52 years, Edith Peppard (HAWKINS) and his children: Sarah Margaret (Jean Pierre CAMUS), Halifax, James Archibald (Jill JEFFERY), Kingston, Johanna Elizabeth, Toronto, Nancy Sabina (Spencer OVERGAARD THOMSEN), Toronto, and Charles Hawkins, New York, and grandchildren Tristan and Sébastien CAMUS, Alexa and Iain MINGO, and Anne, Simon and Claire OVERGARARD THOMSEN.
