Grisly murder
Barrie woman stabbed more than 30 times in Ottawa home
By Tobi COHEN, Special to the Examiner, Saturday, December 10, Ottawa Stabbed more than 30 times in the face, neck, chest and back, Barrie native Kleigh CUNDALL had little chance for survival but that didnt stop neighbours, police and paramedics from trying.
One neighbour who lives across the road from the brown brick house on Queen Victoria St. where the former Eastview Secondary School student has lived for the last two years was returning home Thursday evening when he saw the tenants from the upper apartment pounding on the door to the 21-year-olds basement apartment.
I ran right over. They called for help. They were frantic, he said reluctantly, unwilling to give his name. I was there before the cops. We just couldnt get in to help her.
Police said one of the neighbours had managed to get inside the home and saw a man stabbing CUNDALL before fleeing the apartment to dial 911 around 5: 31 p.m.
When he returned, the door was locked and it wasnt until police arrived five minutes later and bashed down the cedar door with their own body weight that anyone could get inside.
The wooden door frame was still lying on the ground covered in snow yesterday. The jagged broken upper window of the door was left untouched for the forensic team to examine despite the landlords request to board it up. A blue Hyundai Accent remained parked in the driveway of the taped off New Edinburgh bungalow.
Ottawa police Sgt. Ron BOS said the woman had been on the phone with her boyfriend when a knife-wielding man arrived at her home.
She'd put down the phone to answer the door when, moments later, her piecing screams prompted her boyfriend to hang up and dial A police officer and paramedics attempted cardio-pulmonary resuscitation, but CUNDALL had lost enormous amounts of blood and was pronounced dead upon arriving at the Ottawa Hospitals Civic campus.
The man was arrested at gunpoint without incident and led to the front of the house.
They had him up against a car, said another neighbour, noting she couldnt make out his features.
The upstairs tenants were seen leaving their home late Thursday with packed bags.
Taken to the Elgin St. cell block, police said the man was later rushed to the Ottawa Hospitals General campus shortly after 1 a.m. after overdosing on pills. Its believed he took the pills prior to the incident.
Initially in the Intensive Care Unit in critical condition, the suspect is now expected to live and be released within three to five days.
Charges will likely be laid against 21-year-old Anthony ROACH, also of Barrie, once hes released from hospital.

Oro woman stabbed to death
University student attacked in Ottawa apartment
By Andrew SEYMOUR, Saturday, December 10, 2005
Ottawa A 21-year-old Oro Station woman studying at the University of Ottawa was stabbed to death after answering the door to her basement apartment around 5: 30 p.m. Thursday.
Kleigh CUNDALL, who was on the phone with her boyfriend at the time, put the phone down to go to the door and was attacked by a knife-wielding assailant.
Hearing her screams over the phone, CUNDALL's panicked boyfriend immediately hung up and called 911, said Ottawa police Sgt. Ron BOS.
CUNDALL's upstairs neighbour, hearing the screams, came down to see what was happening, only to discover the man still stabbing her. The neighbour retreated from the scene and dialled 911.
Police officers who raced to the house on Queen Victoria Street kicked down the front door, guns drawn. Inside the apartment, they found CUNDALL who had been stabbed 20 times in the neck, chest and back and her alleged attacker.
Police said they believed the two knew each other.
CUNDALL, who had no vital signs when paramedics arrived, was later pronounced dead at the Civic campus of the Ottawa Hospital.
Police arrested Anthony ROACH, 21, of Barrie at the scene. He was moved to the same hospital, where he remained yesterday under police guard.
Police said ROACH apparently overdosed on Aspirin, and possibly other drugs, after CUNDALL was stabbed and before officers arrived on the scene.
Major crime detectives have yet to lay any charges against ROACH, instead waiting until he is released from hospital. He is expected to recover from the overdose.
CUNDALL was a fourth-year biochemistry student who planned to attend medical school and become a general practitioner, her friend Lyndsay BUEHLER said Thursday night.
She had an amazing future ahead of her, she said.
BUEHLER, a member of the university-based Ottawa Christian Fellowship, said CUNDALL had been a member of the group for at least three years.
BUEHLER said CUNDALL loved curling, which she would teach to others in the school group of about 30 members.
I knew her as a very friendly person who was quiet, but willing to talk to whoever was there, she said, stunned by the news.
Neighbours also said they were shocked. A couple who lives across the street said they would often see CUNDALL coming and going to school.
They said she rented the apartment for the past two years.
We knew she was living alone, and we said to her one time, If you ever need anything, give us a call, said Rick FINDLAY.
She looked like a real sweetheart, added Ida FINDLAY. She was always quiet
Another neighbour, Miriam FARBIASZ, arrived home around 8: 30 p.m. and heard the news.
Im just horrified. Shes only been here for a few years now, and she certainly has been the nicest of neighbours. She was very quiet, and seemed like a sensible young lady.
CUNDALLs boyfriend, Joshua FLETCHER, was exiting Highway 417 in Ottawa and talking to her as he made his way through traffic en route to her apartment when all hell broke loose at the other end of the line.
He told his father CUNDALL heard someone at her door and asked her boyfriend to hang on just a minute while she went to see who it was.
The next thing he heard was his girlfriends shrieks as her attacker flailed at her with a knife.
And then he lost the connection.
Now frantic, the man repeatedly hit redial on his cellphone, hoping CUNDALL would pick up and tell him what was happening.
He called 911 and drove to the apartment, where he found several police cars.
The only thing that matters to me right now is that we help Joshua in the grieving process, said his father, Bob FLETCHER, yesterday.
Kleigh's parents are grieving, everyone is grieving, he said. Life will never be the same for anyone associated with this.
The Ottawa Citizen

ROACH, John, 1973 -- Died This Day
Saturday, June 11, 2005, Page S11
Hockey player born in Port Perry, Ontario, on June 23, 1900.
An energetic and acrobatic athlete, he was one of the smallest men ever to play in goal in the National Hockey League. Starting in the minors, he played for Toronto Aura Lee from 1919 to 1920, Toronto Granites from 1920 to 1921 and the Toronto St. Pats from 1921 to 1927 before joining the National Hockey League, where he stayed 14 years -- a long career by the standards of his day. He played for the Toronto Maple Leafs from 1926 to 1928, the New York Rangers from 1928 to 1932, the Springfield Indians from 1931 to 1932, and the Detroit Red Wings from 1932 to part way through 1935 before he was sent down to the Detroit Olympics. A few weeks in the minors was enough for him, and he retired at the end of the 1934-35 season. He was buried in Pine Grove Cemetery in Port Perry.

ROAZEN o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2005-12-08 published
Paul ROAZEN, Scholar And Writer: (1936-2005)
York University professor chronicled the development of psychoanalysis and explored Sigmund Freud's complex relationships with Friends, family and followers
By Stephen STRAUSS, Special to The Globe and Mail, Thursday, December 8, 2005, Page S9
Toronto -- Of the many accomplishments that could be attributed to York University professor Paul ROAZEN, perhaps the most lasting may be that he created a field of study that had never existed meta-psychotherapy.
Over the course of a long and extraordinarily productive career, the teacher of social and political science deconstructed the many different relationships that existed within the world of psychotherapy, particularly those that wove in and around its iconic founder, Sigmund Freud.
"He was not involved in psychotherapy itself, but he was involved in the analysis of psychoanalysis," says Cyril GREENLAND, a former professor of social work at McMaster University and a friend of Dr. ROAZEN.
The bedrock of his work were lengthy interviews that Dr. ROAZEN conducted in the early 1960s with 70 of Freud's patients and colleagues -- interviews that uncovered quirks and diversions in the techniques that eventually turned into psychoanalytic orthodoxy. Among the striking findings was the revelation that the classic position of a psychoanalyst and his patient -- patient verbalizing on couch, doctor sitting behind him silently taking notes -- wasn't how the process originally began.
Freud was initially quite chatty and spoke directly to his patients until surgery for mouth-and-throat cancer made him so self-conscious about his appearance that he preferred to interview without being seen.
Dr. ROAZEN also revealed that Freud had broken what might be thought of as the sacrosanct boundary between patient and parent by psychoanalyzing his daughter Anna. His deconstruction of Freud and his methods infuriated the psychoanalytic community in general and Anna FREUD in particular. So much so that she subsequently wrote in a letter: "Everything Paul ROAZEN writes is a menace." But illustrative of how much Dr. ROAZEN saw his duty to speak the truth as he saw it, the remark was something he quoted proudly.
Another classic among his other 22 books was Brother Animal, in which Dr. ROAZEN (pronounced Roe-zuhn) unravelled the relationship between Freud and Viktor TAUSK -- a student who became a brilliant but troubled colleague, was the lover of one early woman psychiatrist and the patient of another, and eventually committed suicide. A reviewer in The New York Times called the book "an altogether compelling excursion into psychoanalytic history that develops like an intellectual mystery story."
Following in the path of Freud, who co-wrote a psychoanalytic history of Woodrow Wilson, Dr. ROAZEN published in 1998 a study of Mackenzie KING, Canada's King: An Essay in Political Psychology. In 1916, after King fell into a deep depression, he went to Johns Hopkins University for treatment by a psychiatrist. Using notes and letters in the Johns Hopkins archives, Dr. ROAZEN produced a vivid picture of a man so mentally disturbed he believed other people were influencing him through electrical currents and, conversely, that he could influence them back with currents he generated himself.
In a review of the book, Paul ADAM/ADAMS, a former Globe and Mail Middle East correspondent, wrote that Dr. ROAZEN's "cautious, knowledgeable and sympathetic approach cuts quite a contrast to the half-baked psychologizing we read all the time about everyone from Saddam Hussein to Lucien Bouchard."
Part of what ensured Dr. ROAZEN's even-handedness was his phenomenal memory for detail -- particularly when it came to Freud.
"If you would ask him what Freud did on September 2, 1916, he would ask back, 'In the morning or afternoon?' -- that's how detailed his memory was," recounts Hans MOHR, a friend of 40 years and a former colleague of Dr. ROAZEN's at York.
But, like the subject matter he pursued, it was difficult to encapsulate Dr. ROAZEN in a single frame.
He was born in Massachusetts and attended Harvard University, where he received his doctorate in 1965. He soon joined the faculty and stayed until 1971, when he moved to Toronto's York University as part of a stream of new professors joining a quickly growing institution full of multi-disciplinary energy. "His persona was his work; his life was his work," his son Jules said about his father's central passion.
As a teacher, Dr. ROAZEN was, in equal parts, brilliant, daunting and acidulously dismissive. While open to students on many levels, "Paul often overwhelmed undergraduates with the breadth and diversity of his historical allusions and references, expecting a depth and sophistication... that many graduate students do not yet possess," recalls Daniel BURSTON, a former graduate student of Dr. ROAZEN who now teaches at Duquesne University in Pittsburgh.
As an individual, he also was -- the word is used repeatedly by people who knew him -- irascible. "He could be very bad tempered and very demanding," says Prof. GREENLAND. "On the other hand, he could be very wise and very generous and very helpful. On any given day, it was difficult to predict which Paul ROAZEN you would get."
Author John Robert COLOMBO, who was a friend, recounts attending a presentation by a graduate student to a small group of people where Dr. ROAZEN exploded because "it was not up to the master's level, and, oh, it was appalling. He later followed and phoned everyone and didn't apologize but gave reason for his attack, as though there was no moral culpability there."
Nonetheless, the energy that he put into analyzing psychoanalysis produced works so instructive both to the therapy community and to those wishing to understand the effect of the psychotherapy world view on the intellectual zeitgeist of the 20th century that any personal flaws were overlooked by those who came after.
"I think Paul's greatest contribution to psychotherapy was his willingness to confront legends and, in the process, to reveal truth," said Deirdre Bair, the British author of a much-praised biography of psychotherapist Carl Jung. "He did not hesitate to go where angels fear to tread and, in the process, he trampled... many iconic images.
"His gift to the discipline was to seek out the truth, no matter how unpleasant it might have been for the entrenched 'authorities' to read it," says Ms. Bair, who had been encouraged by Dr. ROAZEN to write the Jung book.
"Whether they know it or not, everyone working in this field today is directly or indirectly in his debt," says Prof. BURSTON.
After taking early retirement from York, Dr. ROAZEN moved to Cambridge, Massachusetts., and continued writing. He was elected a member of the Royal Society of Canada in 1993 and made an honorary member of the American Psychoanalytic Association in 2004.
Paul ROAZEN was born in Boston in 1936. He died of complications from Crohn's disease at his home in Cambridge on November 3. He was 69. He leaves his sons Daniel HELLER- ROAZEN, a professor of comparative literature at Princeton University, and Jules ROAZEN, a banker in New York; a brother, Dr. Bernard ROAZEN, of San Francisco; and a sister, Sheila WEISS, of Westport, Connecticut.
His marriage to Deborah HELLER, now a professor of English at York University, ended in divorce.
