Police lay murder charge
Slashed tires and a broken window were found at the home of a slain woman.
By John HERBERT, Free Press Reporter
A young London woman is dead and a London man she knew has been charged with murder in the city's first homicide of the year. Police did not reveal the identity of the woman, who was found dead at 4: 15 a.m. yesterday at her home at 875 Thistledown Way, Unit 5.
But neighbours say the body was that of Laura WILSON, a woman in her early 20s who had recently left her boyfriend.
James William VANDERSANDEN, 23, of 485 Castlegrove Blvd., is charged with first-degree murder, break and enter, criminal harassment, mischief under $5,000 and assault with a weapon.
Police would not say what their relationship was but did confirm they knew each other.
"They had an association," said Det. Sgt. John PARE.
Police would not identify the woman until after an autopsy was completed.
"We spoke to her family, but we can't release the name. It's got to be done the proper way," PARÉ said.
Police would not say what weapon was used.
A shocked neighbour said Wilson lived alone in her mother's condo in the quiet, mostly-seniors Rembrandt Heights condominium complex, just west of the intersection of Wonderland and Sarnia roads.
WILSON had been living with a boyfriend, but recently returned to her mother's place, the neighbour said.
The condo is for sale and WILSON's mother and a younger sister had already moved out, the neighbour said.
WILSON was planning to live in the condo until it was sold, then move in with her mother, she said.
Police confirmed the dead woman was living alone.
But another woman was in the condo at the time of the attack, PARÉ said.
She suffered knife wounds and bleeding, fled the condo and called police from a neighbour's place, police said.
VANDERSANDEN was arrested about 5 a.m. after a short foot chase that ended near the London Aquatic Centre, in the backyard of a home on Blue Forest Place.
Yesterday morning, a silver Chrysler Sebring was parked in front of the condo, with three of its tires slashed.
A large front window near the entrance to the condo was smashed.
"I'm very shocked. She was a very nice woman," said neighbour Dave ROBERTS.
"I heard ambulances about 4: 30 in the morning, but I never heard any noise until then. I looked out the window and all the police were here."
"Nothing like this happens around here," added shocked neighbour Michael GIBBONS.
There were five homicides in London last year.
The most recent victim was William Gordon (Bill) SMITH, who was found face down in gravel outside his apartment at 206 Clarence St. near Simcoe Street November 16.

BENK, Veronique, M.D., M.Sc., F.R.C.P.C.
Dr. Veronique BENK passed away on October 4, 2005 in Toronto with her loving and devoted husband by her side after a courageous fight against breast cancer and leukemia.
She leaves her husband of 13 years, Dr. Paul FORTIN and their two beautiful children Aude (age 6) and Hadrien (age 7). In France she leaves her parents Andree and Jean-Marie BENK and her brother Jerome, his wife (Celine) and their six children. She also leaves her mother-in-law (Pauline PAQUIN) and her husband (Andre COTE,) her sister-in-law (Lucie FORTIN) and partner (Pierre PARENT) and their three children.
Dr. BENK was a radiation oncologist at the Toronto Sunnybrook Regional Cancer Centre where she specialized in the treatment of breast cancer. She was also an Adjunct Scientist at I.C.E.S. where she studied this same condition. Her patients and colleagues will remember her as an extremely caring and committed physician.
Veronique was born in St.-Quentin (Aisne), France. She obtained her medical degree from the University of Lille in France, did her specialty training in oncology at the prestigious Institut Gustave-Roussy in Paris, and at the Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. During her training, she found time to volunteer for one year as a physician and teacher in Burma.
It was in Boston where she met Paul, the love of her life, at the first hockey game that she had ever attended. They were married in France and moved to Canada where they were on faculty at McGill University in Montreal before moving to Toronto.
After her initial diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer, she returned to work with a renewed interest in finding ways to improve the quality of life for persons living with cancer. As part of this work, and after her diagnosis of leukemia, she became involved in Wellspring, a centre that supports individuals and their families living with cancer.
Veronique's boundless curiosity spanned the history of ancient civilizations, to romanesque cathedrals, to baroque music, to the diversity of cultures in the modern world. Her healing journey was accompanied by a desire to grow in her spiritual journey and to train as a cancer guide.

BENK, Veronique, M.D., M.Sc., F.R.C.P.C.
Dr. Veronique BENK passed away on October 4, 2005 in Toronto with her loving and devoted husband by her side after a courageous fight against breast cancer and leukemia.
She leaves her husband of 13 years, Dr. Paul FORTIN and their two beautiful children Aude (age 6) and Hadrien (age 7). In France she leaves her parents Andree and Jean-Marie BENK and her brother Jerome, his wife (Celine) and their six children. She also leaves her mother-in-law (Pauline PAQUIN) and her husband (Andre COTE,) her sister-in-law (Lucie FORTIN) and partner (Pierre PARENT) and their three children.
Dr. BENK was a radiation oncologist at the Toronto Sunnybrook Regional Cancer Centre where she specialized in the treatment of breast cancer. She was also an Adjunct Scientist at I.C.E.S. where she studied this same condition. Her patients and colleagues will remember her as an extremely caring and committed physician.
Veronique was born in St.-Quentin (Aisne), France. She obtained her medical degree from the University of Lille in France, did her specialty training in oncology at the prestigious Institut Gustave-Roussy in Paris, and at the Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. During her training, she found time to volunteer for one year as a physician and teacher in Burma.
It was in Boston where she met Paul, the love of her life, at the first hockey game that she had ever attended. They were married in France and moved to Canada where they were on faculty at McGill University in Montreal before moving to Toronto.
After her initial diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer, she returned to work with a renewed interest in finding ways to improve the quality of life for persons living with cancer. As part of this work, and after her diagnosis of leukemia, she became involved in Wellspring, a centre that supports individuals and their families living with cancer.
Veronique's boundless curiosity spanned the history of ancient civilizations, to romanesque cathedrals, to baroque music, to the diversity of cultures in the modern world. Her healing journey was accompanied by a desire to grow in her spiritual journey and to train as a cancer guide.

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."
