Tot dead, man charged
"I can't believe someone could hurt an innocent little boy,' grieving dad says.
By Patrick MALONEY, Free Press Reporter
Little Donnie CLUBB was going to play hockey.
Just hours after learning the provincewide search for the blue-eyed toddler ended with the grisly discovery of a child's body, Donnie's grieving dad reflected on that simple dream and wept yesterday morning.
"I can't believe someone could hurt an innocent little boy," CLUBB said.
"I wanted to watch him grow up, go to school. I wanted him to play hockey, too, because I played hockey."
Shawn Tyler PALMER, who had dated Donnie's mother since about April, was charged yesterday with first-degree murder in the youngster's death and disappearance.
Investigators found a child's remains in a wooded area of Cambridge yesterday morning after interviewing PALMER, 36.
The murder charge was announced by Waterloo Regional police hours later.
Those brutal developments ended a massive search that began Thursday morning, when Courtney CATTON, 21, reported her only son missing from their Chatham home.
An Amber Alert was issued for Donnie and PALMER was arrested Friday night in Kitchener.
Though officers didn't confirm whether the remains were those of Donnie CLUBB, his father said he was told early yesterday the boy had been found dead in the Kitchener area.
"All they told me is my son's gone forever," said CLUBB, who hadn't seen his son since February due to a court order involved Catton.
"He's not even two years old. How could you hurt an innocent little boy?"
The timeline of the days leading up to the body's discovery has been confusing. But yesterday, the following details surfaced:
- PALMER and the toddler were travelling in Simcoe County, north of Toronto, from Monday to Wednesday, with CATTON's consent, Chatham Insp. George FLIKWEERT told Canadian Press.
- CATTON went to bed Wednesday night thinking her son had been brought home by PALMER, police said.
- Investigators were called to her Edgar Street home Thursday morning and later issued an Amber Alert.
- PALMER was arrested in a friend's Kitchener home late Friday without incident -- and without the toddler.
- About 1: 30 a.m. yesterday, Chatham-Kent police told Matt CLUBB his 22-month-old son had been killed, but the body not yet found.
- Yesterday afternoon, Waterloo Regional police -- who have taken over the investigation -- announced the discovery of a body and the murder charge against PALMER.
"He was just the most beautiful little boy," said Pamela CLUBB, Donnie's grandmother.
CATTON, a Ridgetown native, and her family couldn't be reached for comment yesterday.
The provincewide search for Donnie that started Thursday -- and included hundreds of volunteers scouring Chatham -- took on a troubling tone as it stretched into the weekend. Fewer than 10 per cent of children in non-parental abductions survive beyond 24 hours, one expert said.
Even Matt CLUBB, who lives near Chatham and has never met PALMER, was expecting the worst on Saturday. Despite that, he was levelled by news of his son's death hours later.
"I still can't believe it's happening," he said yesterday. "This is my first kid, my only kid. You never think this stuff would happen to you."

Boyfriend charged in toddler's death
Toddler found dead in wooded lot near Cambridge
Mother's boyfriend charged with first-degree murder
By Nicolaas VAN RIJN, Staff Reporter
The desperate search for a little boy just shy of his second birthday has ended with the discovery of his body in a wooded lot on the outskirts of Cambridge and the arrest of a man on a charge of first-degree murder.
Police found the body of 22-month-old Donny CLUBB in a wooded area between the Grand River and the Whistle Bear Golf Club early yesterday, but would not say what or who led them there.
"Those human remains we believe to be that of Donovan CLUBB," Waterloo regional police Insp. Bryan LARKIN told a news conference, adding an autopsy must still be done. "We're in the early hours of investigation at the crime scene."
The discovery left the little boy's parents devastated.
His mother, 21-year-old Courtney CATTON of Chatham, was in disbelief, her sister Britney said.
"It isn't real," Britney CATTON said. "It's one thing to lose your baby, but to lose him to murder is another thing. It's unexplainable. The only break that my sister had in so long was her kid. He's never gone from her side, ever."
Matt CLUBB, the boy's father, was in shock. "I can't believe this is happening," said CLUBB, 21. "It's like a bad dream and I'm waiting to wake up. But I can't.
"I don't want to believe that this has really happened, I just miss him so much."
CLUBB said police "won't tell us much... if he was buried or not... because they don't want it to interfere with their investigation."
Pam CLUBB, the boy's grandmother, was overcome with grief. "I have a picture of him in a bathtub, he looks so beautiful.... I've been looking at it and all I want to do is hold him, but I can't."
Donny, who had been the subject of a seldom-used province-wide Amber Alert after his mother reported him missing Thursday, was last seen a week ago, when his mother's 35-year-old boyfriend took him on what police believe was a fishing trip in Simcoe, where he has connections.
"Donny's mother was well aware that Donny was going to go away for a period of time," said Chatham-Kent Insp. George FLIKWEERT.
"What they did there, we're not 100 per cent sure, but they were there for several days."
Casey PETERS, who lives next door to the Kitchener house sometimes used by the boyfriend, said she saw a little boy she believes was Donny in a car with the man Monday.
"The kid looked content," PETERS said.
The fishing trip was to have ended Wednesday, and the boy's mother went to bed that night thinking he was back home.
When she found Donny missing Thursday morning, FLIKWEERT said, she called police, who began a missing person investigation at 10: 48 a.m.
Donny's mother told police her boyfriend returned home to their Chatham residence late Wednesday night, and told her that her son was sleeping in the basement of their home.
The man left at about 5: 30 a.m. Thursday, but when CATTON went to look for Donny later that morning she couldn't find him, and called police.
After the boyfriend was arrested in Kitchener on Canada Day, he was interviewed by detectives with the assistance of members of the Ontario Provincial Police's behavioural sciences unit.
"The investigation revealed the circumstances surrounding the death of Donny," Deputy Chief Jack CHAMBERS of Chatham-Kent police said.
Neighbours of CATTON said she had been living with Donny and her boyfriend on Edgar Ave., a quiet street on Chatham's south side.
Rosaire STERLING and his wife Ruth, who have lived on Edgar for 37 years, recalled seeing the energetic child playing in front of their home.
"He used to play right on the road, but my three granddaughters played in the back," Sterling said. "I used to holler at the mum to pull him in. It's a calm street, but there's still a bit of traffic.
"These people didn't cause any rumpus," STERLING added. "They were good people."
Neighbours and other well-wishers began placing flowers in front of CATTON's house, roped off with yellow police crime scene tape, shortly after the news of Donny's death broke yesterday.
Among those paying their respects were Brenda McKINLAY, her young son Zack and boyfriend Bob.
After she placed a single red rose and a small stuffed teddy bear in front of the house, her boyfriend paused and considered the little boy standing beside them.
"Zack's the same age as little Donovan," said Bob.
"It kind of hits home."
Donny's father, meanwhile, was struggling to cope with his loss.
"He was an energetic little boy, always moving, always smiling, always full of life," CLUBB said. "I'll never have the chance to see him grow up and be with him."
Donny's grandmother, too, thought of the good time that will never come again.
"When he would cry, I would take him to the kitchen window and he would look outside, and he would laugh, but that will never happen again," Pam CLUBB said.
Charged with first-degree murder is Shawn Tyler PALMER, who was arrested Canada Day on a warrant charging him with abduction.
He is to make an audio court appearance in Chatham on Wednesday.

Norman LEVINE, Novelist And Poet: 1923-2005
Known as a writer's writer, his short stories have been compared with work by Alice Munro and Mavis Gallant
By Rebecca CALDWELL, Thursday, June 16, 2005, Page S11
Canada made writer Norman LEVINE; a cool reception in Canadian publishing made him leave the country. Now, the next generation's writers are rediscovering his work.
A gifted novelist and a poet, Mr. LEVINE was best known in writing circles for his short stories. His 10 collections are often referred to with the same reverence as work by Alice Munro or Mavis Gallant.
"He was a writer's writer," said Toronto-based Newfoundlander Michael WINTER, the author of The Big Why, who met him in 1993 when Mr. LEVINE was in Saint John's for a reading. The two kept up a regular correspondence. On Monday, Mr. WINTER received a letter from Mr. LEVINE thanking him for an article about his passion for Mr. LEVINE's work that appeared in Brick magazine, the Canadian literary journal. Mr. WINTER counts Mr. LEVINE's sophisticated, sparse modernism in collections such as Thin Ice (1979) as a direct influence on his writing.
"He had a strange relationship with [his] Canadian audience," said Mr. WINTER. " His style is not one that appeals to a lot of people, but a lot of writers marvel at his talent.... His economy of so little saying so much -- when you try to write like that, you realize how hard it is to capture things accurately and truthfully with very few words."
Mr. LEVINE is, however, best known to the public for his controversial 1958 travelogue-social critique Canada Made Me, based on research from a three-month cross-country journey in 1956. The work was not complimentary to a country then stumbling awkwardly toward its cultural and national adolescence.
"I wondered why I felt so bitter about Canada," he wrote in Canada Made Me. "It was foolish to believe that you can take the throwouts, the rejects, the human kickabouts from Europe and tell them: Here is your second chance. Here you can start a new life. But no one ever mentioned the price you had to pay, and how much of yourself you have to betray."
Although it had been commissioned by Putnam and Sons in Britain and by McClelland and Stewart in Canada, M&S publisher Jack McClelland was so aghast at the manuscript that he would print only 500 copies to honour the contract. Canada Made Me would not have a major Canadian release until 1979.
"It was a very unboosterish book that did him in with all the powers that were in Canada," said John METCALF, a friend of Mr. LEVINE as well as his later editor at the Porcupine's Quill, which republished several volumes by Mr. LEVINE, including Canada Made Me in 1993.
"Norman realized that Canadian publishing was closed to him, so he went to England." He lived there for the next 30 years, "where he wrote amazingly inventive short stories and he was heralded as a genius all over England and Europe." In Canada, however, nobody took any notice whatsoever, said Mr. METCALF.
"In part, it was because of the very fact that he had chosen to go away, but also [because of] the rise of Canadian nationalism as a sort of all-consuming force in intellectual and cultural matters in the country. It basically declared both Norman and Mavis GALLANT as traitors to the country. Norman paid the price."
Born to Orthodox Jewish parents in Ottawa in 1923, Mr. LEVINE was raised in the city's predominantly Jewish neighbourhood of Lower Town. He served in the Royal Canadian Air Force as a tail gunner during the Second World War, returning to Canada to study English literature at McGill University. After earning his B.A. and M.A., he won a scholarship to King's College, London, to pursue his PhD on the works of Proust and T.S. Eliot.
Mr. LEVINE had married Englishwoman Margaret PAYNE in 1952, and the two settled in St. Ives, where they would raise three daughters and befriend the burgeoning artistic community -- including abstract expressionist painters such as Francis Bacon, Terry Frost and Patrick Heron. The new intellectual circle would have a profound impact on his work.
"He was around a great deal of technical talk all the time about technique, which he transferred from visual terms into terms of rhetoric, so he was absorbing the lessons of painters and ways of looking and forging his own style," said Mr. METCALF. "He was forging a style that was quite new, fragmentary and imagistic. He was stripping ruthlessly down to the bone, the language got cleaner and cleaner. He denied all the conventional expectations of rhythms."
Living in St. Ives, and not in London or Paris, also gave him a chance to cultivate his outsider's perspective, said Mr. METCALF another of his motivations for leaving Canada. "He'd made the decision to leave on cultural grounds, but also on the grounds that he was an outsider in every aspect of his personality: as a Jew, as a writer, he liked to be on the margins of things, looking in."
Regardless of his reputation within Canada, Mr. LEVINE's writing was treasured outside of the country, particularly in Germany, where Nobel laureate Heinrich Boll worked on translations of Mr. LEVINE's stories for German editions.
Apart from a brief return to Toronto in the early eighties, and some time in France with his second wife Anne SARGINSON, from whom he later separated (Margaret PAYNE died of cancer in 1978,) Mr. LEVINE he made his life in Britain. However, he never forgot the country of his birth, and the country was apparently beginning to remember him. In 2002, he was named the winner of the Writers Trust of Canada Matt Cohen Award, only the second recipient of the prestigious lifetime achievement award. His last book, The Ability to Forget, was published in 2003.
"It was odd that having lived in Britain for 50 years, he still considered himself very much a Canadian. Canada was his world. I think he found it very difficult that he wasn't accepted, but he understood why," said his daughter Cassie FLINT, a high-school English teacher who lived near her father in Barnard Castle, Country Durham.
"He was thrilled by talk from Canadian publishers interested in reissuing his books," she said.
His death came as a shock, said Ms. FLINT. Although he had been seeing a consultant for some heart problems and suffered from blackouts for the past 18 months, he was quite fit and active, and was even at work on another short story.
Norman LEVINE was born in Ottawa on October 22, 1923. He died in County Durham, England, on Tuesday of a suspected heart attack following a fall. He was 81.
