Family says farewell to slain couple
'You shouldn't have to defend your name,' niece says, reacting to Mexican allegations
By Jeff GRAY/GREY with a report from Timothy APPLEBY and Canadian PRESS, Page A9
Woodbridge, Ontario -- At a funeral in front of hundreds of mourners, the grieving niece of the suburban Toronto couple found slain in their Mexican hotel room said her uncle should not have to defend his name from beyond the grave.
"At this time, you shouldn't have to defend your name," Rosanna IANIERO said in a eulogy at St. Clare of Assisi Church in Woodbridge, addressing the late Domenico IANIERO. "… There is only goodness attached to it."
Her remarks, made in a brief, emotional speech about the IANIEROs, grandparents from Woodbridge whom she described as loving and caring, appeared meant to respond to reports that Mexican investigators have suggested the victims may have had links to "illicit activities."
On February 20, Mr. IANIERO, a 59-year-old real-estate agent, and his 55-year-old wife, Annunziata, were found with their throats slit at an upscale Mayan Riviera resort near Cancun where their daughter, Lily, was to have married on the beach.
While initially suspecting two Canadian women staying at the hotel, Mexican investigators have shifted their focus to the family and to people who knew the victims. York Regional Police have been asked by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, who are working with Mexican authorities, to assist in the investigation, and say they hope to start interviewing the 16-member wedding party today. Others may be questioned as well.
As recently as Friday, Mexican lead prosecutor Bello Melchor Rodriguez y Carrillo suggested that the Royal Canadian Mounted Police had said "the slain person had ties with illicit activities." The Mounties have said they have no evidence to link Mr. and Mrs. IANIERO to organized crime.
Yesterday began with a ceremony at a funeral home. Outside, as pallbearers prepared to lift the two wooden coffins into waiting hearses, two white doves were released from a wicker basket to symbolize the couple's souls ascending to heaven, followed by the release of two dozen more doves meant to symbolize their Friends and family.
Later, outside the large, recently constructed church, more than a dozen television cameras and newspaper photographers with stepstools and telephoto lenses captured mourners as they arrived.
More than 300 people filed into the church for the hour-long service. The immediate family sat up front. son Anthony IANIERO, who spoke to the media after the killings, and his wife were the first to take communion.
The couple's niece, a slender blond woman in a black dress and the only direct member of the family to speak at the ceremony, said that the IANIEROs "dedicated their lives to the well-being of their children" and touched many lives with their kindness.
"They loved nothing more than to be in a room filled with music, laughter and the people they cared about," she said.
She described her aunt as an angel, her voice cracking: "I will never forget how you loved my son… as though he was your own."
The slain couple, married for 37 years, had been "graceful" when they danced. They both had been born in Italy but met in Canada in 1964 after their families immigrated. They were married in 1968, and had one son and three daughters.
During the service, Reverend John BOREAN alluded to the tragic nature of the couple's deaths, and urged mourners to remember the Christian ideal of forgiveness.
"I think we need to put forgiveness in our hearts for those people who would have committed such a crime," he said, adding that the criminals must be prevented from killing again.
Outside the church, however, many said the path to reconciliation would be difficult to forge.
"We really celebrate the lives of two people today, but hopefully one day we'll also celebrate justice," Liberal member of Parliament Maurizio BEVILACQUA, who represents the riding of Vaughan, where Woodbridge is located, said after the service.
There has been intense scrutiny of the Mexican authorities' handling of the case. Witnesses: at the Barcelo Maya Beach Resort at the time of the killing have raised concerns about the professionalism of the Mexican police, some alleging that the crime scene was contaminated. Mexican authorities had suggested two Thunder Bay women were the killers, but no longer see them as suspects, sources say.
Peter Van Loan, parliamentary secretary to Foreign Affairs Minister Peter MacKay, attended the funeral and told reporters he was satisfied with the investigation's progress.
York Police Inspector Les YOUNG, who attended the funeral in uniform, said the family is anxious to speak with police about the case. "They're very concerned about the rumours and innuendoes," he said.

600 mourn Woodbridge couple
Four employees of resort are now considered suspects
By Linda DIEBEL in Toronto with files from Gail SWAINSON and Jim WILKES
The victims can't speak for themselves and so, yesterday, the most poignant moment at the funeral of Dominic and Nancy IANIERO came when their niece spoke for them.
"At this time, you should not have to defend your name because you can rest proud behind (the name of) IANIERO," said Rosana IANIERO, standing before their coffins and struggling to hold back tears.
Her meaning was clear. There was an audible sigh among more than 600 mourners, packed into St. Clare of Assisi Catholic church in Woodbridge and spilling over from pews to standing room only.
Since the couple was murdered at a deluxe resort on the Mayan Riviera two weeks ago, the case has been mired in speculation in Mexico about ties to organized crime. The top prosecutor in the state of Quintana Roo leapt to the early conclusion that the double murder was a "professional hit" by Canadian women, his investigation has seemed disorganized and leaks have flowed almost daily from his office.
But maybe Bello Melchor Rodriguez, attorney-general of Quintana Roo, has changed his mind. Although he told a state legislative committee Friday that two Thunder Bay women remain his prime suspects, other leads appear to be surfacing.
Yesterday, a Quintana Roo newspaper reported that police now consider four hotel employees as suspects because they haven't shown up for work at the Barcelo Maya Beach Resort since February 20, the day the IANIEROs were found in their room, their throats slashed.
Rodriguez had quickly ruled out robbery as a motive, saying their room was in disarray but nothing was stolen. Over the past week, however, several tourists and a travel agent have contacted the Toronto Star to cite problems with security at the Barcelo Maya and to ask why Rodriguez was so sure that Mexicans, including hotel employees, were not involved.
Reports posted on a travellers' website described a broken lock on terrace doors at the hotel, problems with safes and one room key that turned out to be a master key for the entire resort. Wrote one reader: "Has it occurred to anybody that this was a robbery gone wrong?"
Whatever the outcome of the shifting police investigation, the damage has been done to the grieving family and its name.
And there is more stress to come.
The IANIEROs had travelled to Mexico, along with 16 family members and Friends, for the planned beachside nuptials of their daughter, Lily. While York Region police officers allowed breathing space for the funeral, Insp. Les YOUNG said police will begin today to talk with members of the wedding party who, by all accounts, were not questioned before leaving Mexico by Quintana Roo state police.
YOUNG declined to say what police are looking for in wedding party interviews, saying "it's a little soon for that. But we will deal with the facts and reality, not rumours and speculation, as we do in any investigation."
He attended the funeral, while 12 York police officers made up a security detail and honour guard. He added that the family has information it wants to share with Canadian police but he didn't elaborate.
York police had been asked to join the investigation by Interpol, acting at the request of Mexican authorities. York Police Chief Armand LA BARGE said two detectives were in Ottawa yesterday, gathering information to help focus their probe.
But yesterday at St. Clare's church, it was a time to remember Nancy, 55, and her husband, Dominic, 59. Born in Italy, they met and courted in Canada and would have celebrated their 38th wedding anniversary on July 13 with their four adult children Rosina, Anthony and twins Lily and Nancy -- and their grandchildren.
At the funeral, with the couple lying in dark and gleaming caskets, Rosana IANIERO talked about "how special they were, how very loved by so many." She added that "we can all cherish the way Dominic and Nancy touched our lives."
She described her aunt and uncle as a "wonderful, kind couple" who "dedicated their lives" to their children.
The four IANIERO children sat with heads bowed. Before the service, they had followed the long, slow wheeling of the caskets down an aisle, Anthony carrying a single photograph. One friend described him as "completely destroyed" by his parents' murder.
"Everybody says we lost an angel," said Rosana about her aunt. She said of her uncle: "I will never forget how you loved us all."
In his sermon, Father John BOREAN sought to offer peace. Death always brings sorrow, he said, and then referring to the couple by their Italian names, he added, "and especially death as tragic as this one for Dominico and Annunziata."
However, he stressed that they had been baptized in their faith and would, on the Day of Resurrection, be restored to eternal life. He urged the family not to think that God had forsaken them. "Over and over again, God has told us, 'You are my creation. You are special.'"
Although "we are all crying," he urged people to "have forgiveness for the people who have committed such a crime." And he told the IANIERO family to "take care of each other and love each other."
As the funeral procession made its way to the cemetery, politicians in Vaughan (which includes Woodbridge) passed a motion yesterday, calling on Ottawa and Queen's Park to "play an active role" in the investigation in Mexico.
Quintana Roo authorities passed on a request for assistance in the investigation to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police last week, through Interpol. However, it's still unclear how involved Canadian police officers will be on the ground.
LA BARGE said it hasn't been decided if any of his detectives will go to Mexico. And the Royal Canadian Mounted Police hasn't determined whether more Mounties will be dispatched to help the single liaison officer already in Mexico.
"It's an active investigation in Canada right now but I can't say more than that," said Royal Canadian Mounted Police Sgt. Martin BLAIS.
In Quintana Roo, Gov. Felex Gonzalez Canto told reporters the case must be resolved "quickly, efficiently and with transparency." Denying there has been a cover-up to protect tourism, he added: "Our tourist image is important but, above all, we have to signal to the world that, in Quintana Roo, no crime against tourists will go unpunished."
That's the hope of Vaughan Region Councillor Joyce FRUSTAGLIO, who sees it as a "moral obligation" to push the federal and provincial governments to get involved. "We need to let the IANIERO family know we are here to support them."
