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.

Youth killed hitching ride on car
Teen horsing around' on rollerblades
Dies in the arms of his older brother
By Stan JOSEY, Staff Reporter
A Pickering youth died in his brother's arms after being run over by a car he had been hitching a ride on while rollerblading.
Derek CAMERON, 15, was "horsing around" on the street outside his family home on Rawlings Dr. about 4: 30 p.m. Wednesday when the accident happened, police said. Derek's father, Scott CAMERON, learned about his son's death while on holiday in Myrtle Beach and rushed home to be with his family last night.
He said his son was an avid hockey player since the age of 6 and wore number 17 on a Pickering house league minor midget team.
"He was a terrific kid and an excellent hockey player," his father said in an interview. "He was full of energy and lived on the edge."
His 17-year-old brother Danny helped set up a memorial to his brother on a street-side hydro transformer outside the family home yesterday.
Derek's blue, white and red hockey jersey was draped over the front of the green box, with several pictures of the boy growing up and in his hockey jersey lovingly placed on top.
In front were some flowers and the words "Love Mom Dad and Danny."
Family friend Shelagh NICHOLS called Derek "a wonderful kid who grew up with one of my sons. We lived just across the back fence. He was just a very athletic kid who loved his brother and people in general.
"He was a real firecracker," she said.
Durham Region police said they are still trying to fit the pieces together to find out exactly what happened on the quiet residential street in the Kingston Rd. and Dixie Rd. area of Pickering. Investigators will say only that the youth was wearing rollerblades while he was hitching a ride from a 1997 Dodge Neon being driven by a 20-year-old woman whom he knew. It is not clear if the youth was beside or behind the vehicle, Sgt. Paul McCURBIN said.
Somehow he fell under the wheels of the car and suffered severe head injuries. He was comforted by his brother, Friends and neighbours until an ambulance arrived. He was transported to Rouge Valley Ajax and Pickering hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
"It is no fun having your brother die in your arms," an emotional Danny CAMERON said outside his house, as he was comforted by Friends.
Family and Friends are planning a memorial service for Derek today.

Pilot dies at Oshawa air show
Close friend was flying nearby before ultralight plane crashed
By Scott SIMMIE and Naomi CARNIOL, Staff Reporters
A highly experienced pilot -- and a well-liked man in the aviation community -- died in a crash yesterday at the Canadian Aviation Expo in Oshawa, the country's largest aviation show.
Doug ROGERSON was in the cockpit of his beloved SeaRey, a plane that had brought him endless joy since he purchased it in October 2002. The Air Canada pilot, who lived near Shelburne, was 58.
"I'm just devastated," said his close friend and fellow SeaRey owner, John DUNLOP. " Doug has been my friend and my buddy for 15 years. He's lived flying like I have and we shared our dream together. And it's ended in such a tragedy today."
The accident occurred at about 1: 40 p.m., as ROGERSON and DUNLOP were preparing for a fly-by at the air show. DUNLOP, a retired Air Canada pilot who has logged hundreds of flights with his own SeaRey, had no indication anything was amiss.
"He was flying on my wing when it happened. I wasn't even aware that he'd left my side until I learned of the accident," DUNLOP said last night while heading back to Shelburne to see ROGERSON's widow and children.
"My family is with me and they're devastated, too."
Few details about the cause of the accident were available yesterday. witnesses: said the two ultralights took off together and were heading west when ROGERSON's aircraft appeared to have trouble. It banked to the left, then the right, before going nose-down into a large pile of gravel next to the foundation of a housing complex.
A crowd quickly gathered.
"I had my hands on that plane two hours before it crashed," said Sandra FREER of Whitby. "The plane was on the tarmac and you could go look at it."
At this early stage of the investigation, police had little information they were able to share.
"Witnesses: reported the plane narrowly missed some homes in the area as it went down and came to rest on the dugout area of the home under construction," said Sgt. Paul McCURBIN of Durham Region police.
Anyone with information on the crash is asked to call investigators from the Transportation Safety Board of Canada at 905-771-7690. Organizers of the Canadian Aviation Expo could not be reached for comment.
Just two days earlier, ROGERSON spoke with the Toronto Star about his love for the aircraft, known by many as "The Orca Rey" because it was painted like a killer whale. He purchased the ultralight, which many build as a kit, as a used aircraft in Seattle.
With an infectious, friendly smile, he described the wonders the plane had brought him, especially on a trip earlier this year with DUNLOP and ROGERSON's son, who is also a pilot.
"We were down in Florida this spring. We flew right down the coast of Florida at 50 to 100 feet up," he said. "We saw wild pigs, even wild horses in northern Florida. My son is also a pilot... so it was kind of fun flying with him."
As a career pilot, ROGERSON was a stickler for details and safety. His craft was gleaming and the cockpit spotless. A pre-flight checklist, which he went over every time he took the aircraft up, was mounted on the instrument panel.
Though ultralight aircraft have grown safer over the years -- and the SeaRey has an excellent reputation and a wide following accidents still happen. A scan of Transport Canada's accident reports indicates that most ultralight crashes occur when the pilot is either not licensed to fly, has modified the aircraft, or is attempting manoeuvres for which the craft was not designed.
Given ROGERSON's background and reputation, it would be surprising if the investigation determines that pilot error was a factor.
On calm summer evenings, ROGERSON was particularly fond of taking his 80-horsepower SeaRey to Bellwood Lake. He was also looking forward to an annual "gaggle" of SeaRey enthusiasts that gathers each year on Georgian Bay. If that gathering goes ahead this summer, you can bet there will be some wonderful stories about ROGERSON -- and more than a few tears.
"Doug was a genuine guy and the best friend a guy could ever have," said DUNLOP, who distributes SeaRey kits in Canada.
You can find pictures of Doug ROGERSON, flying his distinctive and well-travelled Orca Rey, on the photo gallery at http: //www.seareycanada.com.

Methanol mistake leaves man dead
By Jordan PRESS, Tuesday, March 1, 2005 - Page A12
Oshawa -- An Oshawa man who died Sunday of methanol poisoning thought he had been drinking homemade alcohol he had gotten from Friends, his mother said yesterday.
A vodka bottle filled with methanol was passed to Jeff HUSTINS, 24, through a series of Friends, Deborah HUSTINS said in a telephone phone interview.
The friend who gave the bottle to Mr. HUSTINS thought it contained homemade alcohol. It was not clear where the mix-up occurred.
When police recovered the bottle, there was still methanol in it, Ms. HUSTINS said.
"It tasted like alcohol, it smelled like alcohol.... That's what everyone assumed it was."
Methanol -- also known as methyl alcohol -- is clear, colourless and has a slight odour. It is an ingredient in products such as antifreeze, glass cleaner, paints and varnishes. Methyl hydrate, a more potent version of methyl alcohol, is sold in hardware stores.
Mr. HUSTINS drank the methanol for three straight nights, his mother said. On the third night -- Thursday -- he went to a house party where he had no more than one glass of the methanol, she said.
The party was at the apartment of Rich DESROCHES and started after 11 p.m. Mr. HUSTINS, Mr. DESROCHES, 36, and another friend, Dave GOODCHILD, 33, each had the methyl alcohol mixed with orange juice, Mr. DESROCHES said.
"Nobody knew it was methanol," said another man at the party, Kim WRIGHT, 38.
Ms. HUSTINS said she checked on her son Saturday morning and he looked hung over. When she heard that Mr. DESROCHES had similar symptoms, she called an ambulance.
Once at the hospital, Mr. HUSTINS, who had epilepsy, began having seizures. He fell into a coma Saturday night and died Sunday morning.
"I'm hanging in; I'm still in shock, but the full thing hasn't hit me yet," his mother said. "This was my only child."
Mr. DESROCHES and Mr. GOODCHILD also went to hospital but recovered.
Durham Police Sergeant Paul McCURDIN said the death was accidental and police were not planning to lay charges.
Mr. HUSTINS had just moved into an apartment on Normandy Street, near his mother. Yesterday, residents were signing sympathy cards for Ms. HUSTINS.
Mr. HUSTINS's funeral is scheduled for Friday.
