Neighbours are relieved arrest made
Police find human remains 100 kilometres from where Alicia ROSS was last seen
By Unnati GANDHI and Timothy APPLEBY, With a report from Oliver MOORE, Thursday, September 22, 2005, Page A17
Sitting around the kitchen table, four Friends of Alicia ROSS's family tried to calm their nerves with a cup of tea yesterday afternoon. They couldn't bear to be outside where lines of police tape surrounded the neighbouring home of 31-year-old Daniel SYLVESTER, who surrendered to police and is charged with second-degree murder.
"Why didn't he do it earlier?" asked Benny ARONOWITZ, who lives on Green Lane. "The family had to suffer so much."
One of Mr. ARONOWITZ's Friends, Nina REZMOVITZ, said her son, David, and Ms. ROSS were good Friends.
"We're all parents, and this is the worst thing that could happen to any of us," she said. "David and his girlfriend scoured the ravine for hours. He was so distraught."
Ms. ROSS, 25, was last seen by her boyfriend, Sean HINE, just after midnight on August 17 at the home where she lived with her parents. Police described Mr. HINE as a person of interest, but yesterday her next-door neighbour turned himself in.
Hours later, police discovered human remains in two locations. They said they're confident the remains are those of Ms. ROSS.
Ontario's chief coroner confirmed the remains were found near the town of Manilla, about 50 kilometres northeast of Markham, and near the town of Coboconk, another 40 kilometres north.
Bronte Road, the tree-lined street where the victim lived, was quiet yesterday except for the forensic investigators who were scouring the house next door, a home listed as belonging to Grant SYLVESTER since 1997. The best-selling author died in 1999.
His widow, Olga Mary, and son Daniel continued to live in the family home. The couple's other son, Robert, had moved to Mississauga.
Although Daniel SYLVESTER lived in the neighbourhood, he seems to have left little impression. Shown his photo, numerous local residents said they had never seen him. Two women who lived within 100 metres of the SYLVESTER home said working suburbanites invariably go from their car to their house, barely saying hello to any but the closest neighbours.
"I don't know the name of the person across the street," said Angela TORTI, who moved to the area 22 years ago when it was a new subdivision.
None of the neighbours lingering around the cordoned-off area claimed to have seen any of the SYLVESTERs much.
"Everybody today kind of goes their own way. When you have small children, you go out walking with them and you get to know your neighbours," Ms. REZMOVITZ said. "But once your kids are grown, often you don't know who your neighbours are."
Calls to the SYLVESTER home and to Robert's home, office and cottage were not answered.
Next door to the SYLVESTER residence, two posters with Ms. ROSS's photo were still taped to the back windows of an sport utility vehicle. A couple arrived to visit Ms. ROSS's family during the afternoon, but declined to comment afterward.
Around dinnertime, a police officer prevented a teenage girl from entering blocked-off Bronte Road. She left a plastic-wrapped bouquet at the barricade and lit a small candle.
Although some residents said they were shocked to hear that a neighbour had been arrested, they said they were nevertheless relieved.
"It's devastating to hear. It shows some degree of a conscience, turning himself in, but it's like humanizing a monster. This can't redeem him," said Marc FINKELSTEIN, who was jogging with his wife, Simone. "This has paralyzed the neighbourhood. It used to be such an active neighbourhood. It's nice to know all this is finally over."
Ms. TORTI said she had been unable to stop worrying about her daughter, who is living at home while studying at the University of Toronto.
"I don't go to sleep until she's in," she said. "She's 23, but honest to God, I don't go to sleep."
About 100 kilometres northeast of the neighbourhood, human remains that York Regional Police say likely belong to Ms. ROSS, were discovered.
Helicopters whirled overhead, police and Ontario Provincial Police tracker dogs scoured the bush and thick bull rushes over a wide area north and south of Highway 7. But the focal point of the search appeared to be just south of the town of Manilla bisected by Highway 7.
Near the intersection of Simcoe Street and the Seventh Concession, police tape surrounded a rectangle of thick, damp brush less than three metres from the roadside. Under a broiling sun, police with weed whackers cut thick grass and carried it to a York Regional Police forensic truck.
An officer said his colleagues had been there since early morning.
The seven-hectare (28-acre) property has been for sale since the beginning of the month, with an asking price of $139,900 and nobody was more surprised to see the flurry of activity than listing agent Audrey GRIFFIOEN.
"This is terrible, I can't believe it," she said, explaining that the property -- partly farm land and partly environmentally protected -- had recently had a conditional purchase offer.
"He's got to be a real sicko, the guy who did this," she said. "Killing is bad enough, but hacking up and spreading body parts all over the countryside.... I'll bet you he just stopped in his car and chucked it."
Also dismayed was 23-year-old Melissa NEWBERRY, whose parents own an 11-hectare (43-acre) parcel of dense brush just north of Highway 7, where more searching was under way.
"It's kind of scary," she said, recounting a recent incident in which she was jogging along the road. She said "some creepo in a yellow car," whom she described as a blond-haired man about 30 years old, appeared to be watching her.
She was advised to report the encounter to one of the numerous police officers in the area.
