Investigators probe death of Oshawa teenager
By Katie ROOK, Page A14
Toxicology tests have been ordered after what police descnbe as the suspicious death of an Oshawa teen.
Kyla HOLBURN, 16, was found face down in a laneway beside a seven storey apartment building in Whitby just after 6: 30 Monday evening.
Police said a resident of the building found the body and informed the superintendent, who called 911.
An autopsy performed yesterday found no signs of trauma to Ms. HOLBURN's body that wouid have caused her death but said that she was improperly dressed for the weather, a police spokesman said.
"It's pretty clear it's a homicide or some very serious accident that probably didn't happen at this location," Durham Regional Police Chief Kevin McALPINE told CFTO News outside Woodfarm Manor on Nichol Avenue, where Ms. HOLBURN's body was found.
Forensic investigators cordoned off a home at 323 Durham Court, less than two kilometres from where the body was found.
Police are treating the death as suspicious, and the residence is a place of interest, said Staff Sergeant Paul MARTIN of Durham Regional Police.
Students at R. S. McLaughlin Collegiate and Vocational Institute in Oshawa, where Ms. HOLBURN was in Grade 11, were told in an announcement that she died suddenly and counsellors were available at the school.
Ms. HOLBURN's Friends soon arrived at the Nichol Avenue apartment building with flowers in hand to pay their respects. They described her as caring and outgoing, and said they were surprised to hear she was in Whitby.
Sergeant Paul McCURBIN of Durham police said that when any young person dies it "is obviously a concern. You haven't even started your life yet."
The major-crimes unit in Durham Region continues to investigate and police ask that anyone with information contact them.

MERIFIELD, Arthur -- Dispatch:
By Katie ROOK, Saturday, January 29, 2005 - Page M4
Arthur Gordon MERIFIELD could often be found sitting in coffee shops scratching mathematical equations onto napkins -- scribblings that would eventually become textbooks for Seneca College, where he was a professor for 33 years.
But formulas were only one dimension of mathematics that fuelled his zeal for the subject. One of Prof. MERIFIELD's prize possessions was a collection of dice, ranging from the standard six-sided cube to one with 32 sides. His children also say he was as fascinated with the beauty of bubbles as with the mathematics behind them, and held seminars on the subject.
Commuting every day from the family home in Grimsby, Ontario, to Seneca College at Keele Street and Steeles Avenue, Prof. MERIFIELD felt he was wasting valuable time in stop-and-go traffic. So he took to getting up at 4: 45 a.m. to start his commute before everyone else, his 1991 Toyota Corolla often arriving first in Seneca's sprawling parking lot.
Born in Windsor, Ontario, in 1944, Prof. MERIFIELD moved to Toronto in 1957. He was married twice and leaves behind a large family, including his wife, Linda, whom he met in the math department at the University of Western Ontario in London.
He took to poetry later in life and wrote verses inspired by walks along Hamilton's Ridge Road atop the Niagara Escarpment, which he called his muse.
Prof. MERIFIELD died of cancer on January 9 at the age of 60. When his family asked if he was afraid, he told them that he did not fear death, but "regretted the imminent closure of life."
He was cremated and had asked that his family take his ashes out for a coffee.

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.

University football star killed in bar
Suspect turns himself in to Kingston police
By Katie ROOK, Staff Reporter
A man wanted in connection with the slaying of a Queen's University football star at a Kingston bar turned himself in early yesterday morning.
Justin SCHWIEG, a 23-year-old physical education student, died after he was stabbed at AJ's Hangar on Princess St. early Friday morning.
Police, who described the attack as unprovoked, said the suspect fled the scene when bar staff confronted him.
Around 2 a.m. Friday, Kingston police and ambulance were called to the dance bar, a popular destination frequented by youth from the Kingston area, Queen's University and the Royal Military College.
Earlier, chaos had erupted after the stabbing on the second floor as screaming patrons pushed and shoved each other to get their coats to quickly leave, witnesses: said.
"This is a tremendous loss to our community, all because of a vicious and cowardly act," said Kingston police Det. Sgt. Harley KELLAR, lead investigator.
SCHWIEG, who was a defensive back for the Queen's Golden Gaels, had worked as a doorman at the Brass Pub on Princess St. for just over a year.
"There are nothing but nice things I could say about him. Everyone looked up to him. He was someone I could really rely on, that's why I had him," said the pub's general manager Mike WIEBER.
"He was a hard-working kid, a great attitude not only at work, but life in general. He was an athlete. He was just on his way to finishing a university degree. He wanted to get into teaching and that's what he wanted to do after when he graduated. He would have been great at it."
In addition to going to school, playing football and holding a job, SCHWIEG coached youth football.
The Brass Pub bar staff, a tight-knit group, was in a state of shock and gathered yesterday to try to make sense of the tragedy, he said.
"I don't know if it has to do with we're getting a bigger population (in Kingston) or if the kids that are growing up these days are just getting more violent," he said.
A number of fundraisers are being planned and fellow employees say they would like to help the SCHWIEG family.
"I know in big cities like Toronto and Ottawa a lot of these incidents happen, but here in Kingston it doesn't happen," WIEBER said.
"It's really showing how much Kingston is changing. I just really think we should open our eyes here in Kingston and we're going to have to be more aware of things that are going on and maybe different security measures for getting into the bars."
This was Kingston's second homicide of the year.
Bruce Keno McKENZIE, 26, also known as Fuzzy or Fuzzy J, is charged with second-degree murder and possession of a weapon.
He is in custody and scheduled to appear in court today.
A 23-year-old Kingston man, Michael CRICTOBAL, was arrested by Toronto police and returned to Kingston where he was scheduled to appear in court today to face a charge of being an accessory after the fact to murder.
