Slain 20-year-old had promising future
By Hayley MICK, Page A10
Natalie NOVAK left her small Ontario town and found Friends, excitement and love in Toronto. But in the wee hours of Monday, after a night out with her roommates, the 20-year-old Ryerson University student was stabbed to death in her bedroom. Her former boyfriend is accused of second-degree murder.
Police say the Toronto man was under a court order to stay away from Ms. NOVAK. But the young woman, who earned straight A's and was looking forward to an exciting summer in the city, let him back into her life. Now, as police investigate the city's 22nd murder and Ms. NOVAK's parents grieve the loss of their daughter, known to Friends as Nat, the question remains: How could this have happened?
Ms. NOVAK arrived in Toronto three years ago and enrolled in the hotel management program at Ryerson. About a year later, police said, she began a relationship with a recently landed immigrant from Ethiopia whom she met at a store.
In September, after an assault that did not cause Ms. NOVAK serious harm, a court ordered the man to sever contact with her, police said. But the couple continued seeing each other "on and off," Detective Sergeant Gary GIROUX said yesterday.
On May 1, after completing her third year of studies and securing a summer job as a waitress, Ms. NOVAK moved to an old, split-level home at 28 Grange Ave., near the intersection of Spadina Avenue and Dundas Street, with three other students.
Her parents travelled to Toronto and helped her move into the bedroom with a window overlooking the tree-lined street. She cluttered her closet with more that a dozen pairs of shoes and hung a painting depicting a scene from her youth: Northern Ontario's lakes and trees, painted by a relative.
Sean KIRBY, a University of Toronto student who lived in the downstairs suite, said he spoke to Ms. NOVAK a few times and she "seemed like a nice, normal young girl." She and her roommates, two men and a woman, would often hang out on the rooftop patio outside her room.
According to police, on Sunday night Ms. NOVAK and her roommates went out for drinks. Her ex-boyfriend joined them and accompanied Ms. NOVAK back to her home at the end of the evening, police said
Just after 3 a.m., police said, an argument erupted in Ms. NOVAK's room. The shouting turned into screams, they said.
By the time her roommates forced open her door, Ms. NOVAK had suffered fatal stab wounds. Police say her killer crawled out her bedroom window, leaped eight metres from the balcony, and escaped. Police arrested a man 45 minutes later.
Arssei HINDESSA, 30, has been charged with second-degree murder. Police say he is unemployed and not a student. His next court appearance is set for May 23.
Behind the yellow police tape surrounding the home where Ms. NOVAK lived, a dozen white roses have been left along with a picture of a pretty, smiling brunette in a black dress and strappy shoes. A card from Ms. NOVAK's cousin, Alexandrea, reads: "Natalie, we miss you, remember you always."

Web clues in club shooting mystify police
By James RUSK, Page A10
Toronto police said yesterday that they have pictures of a man they suspect shot another man dead in an illegal after-hours club on Weston Road early Saturday morning.
They just don't know who he is, Detective Sergeant Gary GIROUX told a news conference at police headquarters.
He said that witnesses: in the community directed police to an Internet site on which the photographs of the suspect were posted.
The suspect, described by the police as a Hispanic in his late 20s or early 30s, is "extremely, extremely dangerous to the community. He is a high-risk to reoffend violently," Det. Sgt. GIROUX said.
The suspect is wanted in connection with the shooting of Gabriel JARAMILLO, 22, just before 6 a.m. Saturday in an after-hours club at the rear of 1806 Weston Rd., near Lawrence Avenue West.
"The deceased was involved in a physical fight within the premise of the after-hours club, not with the shooter, with another male, who had been in the company of the shooter throughout the evening. The shooter intervened in the fight, and shot the deceased a number of times at extremely close range," Det. Sgt. GIROUX said.
Mr. JARAMILLO was pronounced dead at the scene, and an autopsy performed yesterday morning concluded that he had died of a gunshot wound to the head, Det. Sgt. GIROUX said.
The shooter and his friend were last seen on Weston Road.
According to the police, the suspect who fired the shots has a dark complexion, is 5 feet 8 to 5 feet 9, weighs 180 pounds, and has a thin nose, thin face, slight goatee, dark curly hair and tattoos with the word "libertad" on his arms, chest and the back of his neck.
His friend is described as a Hispanic in his late 20s or early 30s, 5 feet 8 to 5 feet 9, 200 pounds, lighter complexion than the shooter, wider face, big build, muscular, with a long, dark-brown ponytail just below the collar and one earring.
Also yesterday, police said they have made an arrest in another homicide committed in the city on the weekend.
Detective Sergeant Steve RYAN of the homicide squad said that Patrick BRADLEY, 25, has been charged with second-degree murder after his mother, Colleen BRADLEY, 59, was stabbed to death in her North York apartment near Keele Street and Sheppard Avenue West.

Victim, 22, well-known to police
By Betsy POWELL, Crime Reporter
There will be more room on the walls of Toronto's 13 Division police station after officers removed photographs of the city's most-recent homicide victim.
Kemar Phatado BROWN's mugshot was displayed throughout the station on Eglinton Ave. W., at Allen Rd., as a "safety precaution" for officers concerning a man who did not keep his dislike of police a secret.
The 22-year-old was pronounced dead at Saint Michael's Hospital after being shot twice in the chest at about 9: 30 p.m. Tuesday in a tiny room above a vacant store on Church Street, south of Dundas St. E. He did not live at the address.
An autopsy is scheduled for this morning.
Several witnesses: called police after hearing gunshots and seeing two figures in dark hooded sweatshirts run from the back of the building.
Homicide investigators are continuing to interview people who have come forward and review surveillance videotape from the area, Det. Sgt. Gary GIROUX said yesterday.
Police sources say while BROWN threatened police, he did not individually name officers, thereby avoiding any charges.
He had "an active criminal record for a substantial number of years," GIROUX said, standing beside an easel with a police photo of BROWN taken three weeks ago.
At the time, he was charged with assault with intent to resist arrest, assaulting a peace officer, possessing property obtained by crime and failing to comply with his recognizance, court documents show.
"His family is more than aware that he had a number of brushes with police and that was no surprise to them," GIROUX said.
BROWN was also facing an outstanding charge of assault causing bodily harm, which was laid on January 27. In April, he was charged with one count of possessing marijuana. BROWN had scores of run-ins with police and a long list of convictions for drugs and violent offences.
Police canvassed the area where the two men were seen running. Surveillance video at the rear of the building, as well as from a co-op building and the Ryerson University campus, might have captured the pair.
