Dad, 2 daughters killed in collision
By Debora VAN BRENK, Daniela SIMUNAC, April KEMICK and Kate DUBINSKI, Free Press Reporters, Wed. May 31, 2006
A London man and his two daughters were killed Monday in a head-on collision so violent police weren't sure at first how many people had died.
John DAUBS, 49, and daughters, Ashley, 15, and Stephanie, 12, died when their car was crushed beneath a flatbed towed by a dump truck on Clarke Road near Kilally Road in the city's northeast.
Police are investigating whether the collision was intentional, mechanical or accidental, London police Const. Amanda PFEFFER said.
"It really is indescribable."
As word of the deaths spread at Clarke Road secondary school, where Ashley was in Grade 9, students there were overwhelmed with grief, said friend Taylor WAREHAM.
"People who knew (Ashley) were really upset and confused," said WAREHAM, who was on the track and field team with the popular student.
"There were so many people crying in the hallways. (Ashley) was such a happy outgoing girl," said Jordan CLAYTON, 15, a friend who laid flowers at the crash scene last night.
Friends described the 15-year-old track star as funny, athletic and outgoing, well-liked by peers.
Her younger sister, Stephanie, who was in Grade 7 at Bonaventure Meadows elementary school, was remembered by those who knew her as a smart, friendly, athletic girl with lots of Friends.
"She was always happy," said Murtaza REZAZADA, in Stephanie's class last year.
Carolyn WEBB, a retired Bonaventure kindergarten teacher who taught both girls and stayed in touch with the family, said the pair were "wonderful, loveable girls."
WEBB said John and his wife Debbie had recently separated, but the family remained tight.
"The parents were so dedicated to those girls -- they did everything for them," WEBB said, wiping her eyes.
"This is so devastating."
John's sister, Diane HALES, said last night the family was shocked to hear of the triple fatality early yesterday.
HALES said John was a "doting" dad who was a regular at the girls' many athletic and musical events.
"(John) was a proud father," she said, adding the two girls were "inseparable."
Those who knew John at the trailer park where he had lived and worked as manager for the last 10 years agreed.
"As a dad, he was always there for them," said Jim ANDREW, owner of the London Terrace trailer park on Dundas Street.
"John was very involved."
Overnight and into yesterday, a blue tarp covered the Chevy Citation, flattened by the dump truck.
Yesterday, about 12 London police officers walked shoulder to shoulder examining the road for evidence.
Another 10 blue-gloved officers scoured the ditches and the road edge, searched for clues that might explain why the northbound car slammed into the southbound truck.
The vehicles -- car, dump truck and a backhoe still secured to the truck's flatbed -- were pulled from the scene, but the road wasn't re-opened until yesterday, allowing police to investigate.
Police have interviewed the truck driver, who suffered minor injuries in the crash.
A dog in the car died yesterday.
Police ask any witnesses: to the crash to call 661-5670.

Chatham man stabbed to death
By Debora VAN BRENK, Free Press Reporter, Mon., October 30, 2006
A Chatham man is dead of multiple stab wounds after an after-hours house party turned ugly yesterday.
Chatham-Kent police said 26-year-old Ryan Ervin STEELE of Chatham was stabbed in front of a home on Park Street in Chatham's east end at about 4: 30 a.m. yesterday.
STEELE was taken to hospital but died of his wounds.
A suspect was arrested about 10 a.m. and is expected to be in court this morning to face a first-degree murder charge, said Chatham Police Insp. George FLIKWEERT.
He would not identify the suspect.
sources identified a man in custody as Mark LIST, Jr.
FLIKWEERT said numerous people had gathered at the Park Street home, where neither the victim nor the suspect was a resident, after the bars had closed yesterday.
"There were indications that the individuals had been at one of the nightclubs in town and there was a gathering at this particular place on Park Street," FLIKWEERT said.
FLIKWEERT said STEELE was stabbed several times and someone made a 911 call.
Police have interviewed more than a dozen people, seized a vehicle and cordoned off the east Chatham house. They also seized a weapon.
An autopsy is to take place in London today. One media report said STEELE was a father-to-be, with his girlfriend three months pregnant.
The co-founder of a group that has strived to reduce crime in east Chatham said the stabbing is an anomaly. "This isn't the norm anymore," said Marjorie CREW of East Side Pride.
A candidate for municipal council, CREW said the reality and perception of east Chatham "are really improving. We're not looking at this as a setback.
"It doesn't matter where it happened geographically. It's still tragic."
She said so-called after-parties -- gatherings that take place after the bars close -- often end up at homes elsewhere in Chatham-Kent.
"The after-parties have always been a concern because of what usually goes on there -- drinking and so on.
"It's like an uncontrolled environment," she said.

SPANO, Doctor Linda Joan, M.D., M.H.Sc, B.Sc.N.
With deep sadness the family announces the passing of our beloved Linda. Linda Joan SPANO was born in Belleville, Ontario, September 30th, 1948 and died on September 10th, 2006 following a two and half year struggle with Ovarian cancer. Linda was a loved and respected Family Doctor, a talented artist and an excellent athlete. Her academic career was notable for her insatiable curiousity and superior research skills. Linda graduated with a Bachelor of Nursing Science at the University of Western Ontario, a Masters degree in Health Science and a degree in Medicine at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario. She completed her postgraduate work at the University Hospital in London, Ontario. Linda developed an approach to private Family Practice with an emphasis on the care of patients as whole persons, with integrated physical, social, spiritual and psychological lives. During her years of active practice she continued her academic interests through teaching and research. Linda was highly regarded by the senior medical faculty at the University and was invited to develop a new course in The Determinants of Health which she taught to senior professors in University of Western Ontario's Medical School. She was held in high esteem by her family medicine and specialist colleagues and much loved by her patients. Linda's strength, generosity, intelligence, kindness and courage, were all enlivened by a keen and intelligent sense of humour. She would not tolerate unkindness, dishonesty or injustice in herself or others. Left to mourn are her husband and loving companion, Dr. Michael BRENNAN, her mother Marjorie SPANO, her sister, Lorie CORRIE (John KASSIES,) her brother, Robert SPANO, her stepchildren, Dawn BRENNAN, Nonie BRENNAN (Michael PEIRCE), and Keith BRENNAN, her grandchildren Jocelyn and Andrea PEIRCE, her nieces Kristine, Robin and Erin, her nephews, Jeffrey and Michael and their families.

Slain officer remembered as 'true-blue cop's cop'
Veteran plain clothes detective may have broken up drug deal before being shot
By Hayley MICK with a report from Canadian Press, Page A6
Toronto -- His colleagues say Constable John ATKINSON was a "true-blue cop's cop" who was on the job "24 hours a day."
That dedication helped him infiltrate organized crime, charm hardened criminals and propel him to a spot on Ontario's elite anti-terrorism squad.
Now, as the Windsor police force mourns the loss of this 14-year veteran, the question is whether Constable ATKINSON's willingness to go the extra mile may have played a role in his death.
Police say Constable ATKINSON, 37, was on duty Friday afternoon when he was fatally shot after confronting two people outside a convenience store. The father of two died in the parking lot, only blocks from his east-end Windsor home. Two 18-year-olds have been charged with first-degree murder.
Police say Constable ATKINSON suspected a drug deal was going on, and Windsor Police Chief Glenn STANNARD said yesterday that the officer would have been "duty bound" to investigate.
Breaking up petty drug deals was not a part of the job description for an officer who worked in street clothes and sometimes undercover. He had been working for the past two years to unearth terrorists with a provincial joint task force.
Yesterday, the force's honour guard joined thousands of Ontario police in Toronto for a service honouring fallen officers.
As they ate lunch after the service at Queen's Park, his colleagues described Constable ATKINSON as a "true brother" who lived for his family and his profession.
"He was a policeman 24 hours a day," said one constable who did not want to be named.
"You say 'police,' you say 'John,' " added another.
Constable ATKINSON grew up in Windsor and married his high-school sweetheart, Shelly. They bought the house next door to his parents and had two children: Mitchell, now 9, and Nicole, who turned 7 on Saturday.
He joined his hometown police force as a cadet in 1991, and earned a reputation as a hard-working cop who was especially adept at recovering stolen vehicles.
"There's people who go 120 miles an hour and there's people who go 40 miles an hour," said Chief STANNARD. "He worked all the time."
About six years ago, Constable ATKINSON became an undercover officer. His easy-going manner had proven valuable in getting criminals to talk.
"He was really good at cultivating that information," said Sergeant Mike LAPORT, president of the Windsor Police Association. "He could pretty well talk to anybody."
He was also "strong like an ox," said another officer, who said he often worked out with Constable ATKINSON, who was about six feet tall and weighed over 200 pounds. "He was a true-blue cop's cop," he added. "If you're in [trouble], you want him there."
About two years ago, Constable ATKINSON was assigned to the province's anti-terrorism section, a unit that includes municipal, provincial and federal officers. The job meant he often worked alone.
He showed up to work most days wearing jeans.
On Friday afternoon, just after 2 p.m., police say Constable ATKINSON pulled up to a gas station and convenience store. He was in plainclothes and filling up his unmarked vehicle with gas.
Police say he noticed two men involved in what appeared to be a drug deal.
"He came across something that was potentially a criminal offence and was duty bound to take some action, and he did," Chief STANNARD said.
Constable ATKINSON flashed his police badge, police say, and shortly after he was struck by a bullet. He was able to return fire before falling to the pavement.
Chief STANNARD said he did not know whether Constable ATKINSON knew the two teens charged in his death.
"I'm not going to question or second-guess whether he should have done this, or should have done that," Chief STANNARD said.
"He took some action -- whatever that may be. We'll sort through the rest of that in the investigation."
He said the officer was comfortable working alone, as he often did.
Constable ATKINSON, the first Windsor police officer ever killed on duty, will be buried with full police honours on Thursday. A public memorial service will be held Tuesday.
Charged with first-degree murder are Nikkolas BRENNAN and Coty DEFAUSSES, both 18. Mr. BRENNAN was also charged with possession of a narcotic for the purpose of trafficking. He also faces a weapons charge.

Wary hiker killed in woods
Criminal negligence charge laid
Forest near Tottenham a favourite spot
By Jim WILKES, Staff Reporter files from Richard BRENNAN and Victoria KENT
Marianne SCHMID loved to walk the leafy paths of the lush public forest near her home west of Tottenham.
But the 67-year-old hiker never made the daily trek during hunting season, her family says, because she was wary of hunters shooting at deer or wild turkeys that amble through the pines a 45-minute drive north of Toronto.
SCHMID didn't know hunting season had begun on Monday, and, despite wearing a red sweater and jeans, was shot dead by a hunter who thought she was wild game wandering the woods that afternoon.
Her husband, Walter, who was worried when she didn't return home, took his 2-year-old grand_son for a ride to find her and ended up identifying her body in the back of an ambulance by the side of the road.
Police last night charged a Keswick man with criminal negligence causing death in the incident.
"She was my everything," SCHMID said yesterday in the stone and wood home he and Marianne built themselves in the late 1960s, even as she was pregnant with son Toby, now 36.
"It's stupidity," he said.
"We'll never -- never -- recover what was destroyed by that one shot."
SCHMID said his wife had phoned the Ontario Provincial Police just last week, "because she had a scare with someone shooting" in the forest.
He said she stopped walking in the forest when hunting season began each autumn. But because the dates of the season change from year to year, they didn't realize it began on Monday.
He said she had encountered bow hunters earlier this fall, when their hunting season was in full swing.
"But they shoot at closer range, so they can see their targets more clearly."
Officers from the Nottawasaga detachment of Ontario Provincial Police were called to the Simcoe Regional Forest late Monday afternoon to answer a call about a woman who was injured. They found SCHMID dead from a single gunshot wound to the abdomen, deep in the forest off the 2nd Concession of Adjala-Tosorontio Township, north of Highway 9, a few kilometres east of Mono Mills.
"I keep hearing that this was a tragic hunting accident," said SCHMID's son, Toby. "This wasn't an accident.
"A tree falling on her would be an accident. I thought the cardinal rule for responsible hunters was that you positively identify your target before you pull the trigger."
Walter agreed.
"We don't understand how anybody could confuse her with a deer," he said, standing on the second floor of the family home, at the end of a long driveway that winds through a woodlot of pine, cedar and fir on the 3rd Concession.
"We're not against hunting, but this is not a hunting accident."
Walter came to Canada from Germany in 1957 and Marianne followed the next year, even though she was too young to emigrate alone under German law.
"She snuck away to Canada to marry me," he said, summoning a small smile. "We built this house together. She cut the stone herself and carried it up a ladder when she was pregnant to build the chimney.
"We still had big plans, very big plans. Everything we did was because of her."
SCHMID said his wife drove to the forest each day for a hike along the path that loops through the trees. He took a video of her playing in the fallen leaves with 2-year-old grand_son Max just moments before she put the youngster down for a nap and headed off for her walk on Monday.
"She was wearing a red turtleneck sweater -- red of all colours," Toby said. "She left her coat behind because it was such a nice day.
"And they make it mandatory for hunters to wear orange vests."
Walter said his wife was "a real jock."
"I couldn't keep up with her," he said
Toby said his mother was an avid scuba diver, hiker, skier, kayaker and windsurfer.
"She could leave young punks behind on the water -- myself included," he said.
The last fatal hunting incident in Ontario was in December 2004, when a 62-year-old hunter shot two men as they set up decoys near Kohler, outside Hamilton.
The hunter apparently mistook them for ducks, despite the bright orange hat and coats they wore, required under Ontario law.
Hunting accidents in Ontario have dramatically declined over the years -- there were just two in the province last year and neither was deadly.
But Robert Pye, spokesperson for the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters, said the fatal shooting is "deeply disturbing… it's just a shocking incident."
"Hunters in Ontario are required to have a minimum of 20 hours of firearms and hunter education safety training and over a million people have gone through the training (in the past 50 years)," Pye said.
"That's why we are so shocked, because hunting has enjoyed an incredible safety track record, particularly the last 10 years or so. The safety record for hunters has been near flawless for the last three or four years."
A Ministry of Natural Resources official noted the deer hunt in the area where SCHMID was shot is designated a so-called "controlled hunt" where hunters can only use shotguns, firing slugs rather than pellets, or black powder weapons whose projectiles don't travel as far as a bullet fired from a high-power hunting rifle.
Frederick Paul THOMAS, 60, of Keswick, faces charges of criminal negligence causing death and careless use of a firearm. He is to appear in Bradford court December 21.
