Second beating dealt fatal blow
Toronto's latest homicide victim was disabled in a baseball bat attack while living in Edmonton 10 years ago
By Josh WINGROVE, Staff Reporter, Page B2
A Toronto man who died Thursday from a beating in Cabbagetown was on long-term disability from another attack in Alberta a decade ago.
Abdiaziz MAHAMED, 37, had been living in Edmonton when he was attacked with a baseball bat, his brother said.
Police never caught his attacker and he moved back to Toronto to live with his brother for a year.
MAHAMED began living on disability benefits, taking medication for what had become a persistent string of seizures, and soon moved to his own public housing unit.
He was attacked early Thursday morning in the same unit, suffering a blunt-force blow that, this time, proved fatal.
"Maybe it was his lifestyle. It could have been bad luck, it could be maybe he was too generous and accepted everybody, and everybody took advantage of him," said his brother, Abdirizak MAHAMED, 46.
The victim has a daughter, 11, who lives in Edmonton with her mother. One of eight children, MAHAMED moved to Canada with his brother at 17.
His family, gathered to mourn in their west-end Toronto home this weekend, described him as friendly and outgoing.
"He was very, very kind, and a generous person," his brother said.
The Toronto police homicide squad is investigating MAHAMED's death, the city's 66th homicide of the year.
Police said they were called to his Oak St. residence, just east of River Street, after a security guard at the building called for an ambulance. After a search of the building, officers found MAHAMED with face and head injuries, later determined to be from a blow to the head. He was unconscious when an ambulance officials took him to Saint Michael's Hospital with life-threatening injuries just before 2: 30 a.m., police said. He succumbed to his injuries Thursday evening.
His brother said although Edmonton police failed to find the first attacker, he is "pretty much confident" in the five detectives working on this case.
"We're not angry. There's a destiny for everything. People can get killed unexpectedly. They can die in a car accident. We are gaining our strength by believing in that," he said. "We are concerned that another person has taken a life, an innocent life&hellip no one has the right to take somebody else's life."
A 26-year-old man, found injured near MAHAMED and who was taken into custody, remains a "person of interest," but investigators aren't jumping to conclusions, Det. Wayne BANKS said. "There was definitely some type of altercation, but whether or not it was with (the other man,)" remains to be seen, BANKS said.
Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 416-808-7125 or CrimeStoppers anonymously at 416-222-8477.

Driver faces charges in death of teen
By Hayley MICK, Page A10
With his capable hands and eagerness to please, Ravi MAHDAI could always be counted on to fix things.
On Monday afternoon, the 17-year-old headed to a friend's house in Mississauga to help her change the oil in her Ford Explorer.
Police say he was in the rear passenger seat of that sport utility vehicle later that night when he became Toronto's latest traffic fatality.
Mr. MAHDAI's six siblings and his parents, who are both unemployed because of poor health, struggled yesterday to come to terms with his death.
"[Our mother] is still thinking that he's going to walk through the door," a tearful Trisha MADHAI, 19, said yesterday in front of their modest red-brick home in Mississauga.
Dawn Marie COX, 37, is charged with impaired driving causing death and dangerous operation of a motor vehicle causing death.
She was released on bail yesterday. Her family members did not speak to the media.
According to his family, Mr. MAHDAI had gone into Toronto with Ms. COX and her boyfriend, David LATCHANA, 21, to shoot some pool on Monday evening.
They were driving home along the Gardiner Expressway at 10: 32 p.m. when, police say, Ms. COX lost control of the vehicle just east of Parklawn Road.
Police say she tried to pass another vehicle, then lost control and struck another westbound car, which sent her Explorer into a spin.
The sport utility vehicle spun across four lanes, bounced off the left side barrier and spun back, slamming into the right-side barrier, police said.
Mr. MAHDAI died instantly from massive head injuries when the back of the Explorer was crushed. Ms. COX and her boyfriend, who was in the front passenger seat, were not seriously injured.
Yesterday, Toronto police launched a new traffic safety program called Operation Safe Journey, which they hope will prevent similar tragedies.
The program involves an education campaign and heavier law enforcement. And when police explain why such a program is needed, they point to statistics like these:
Last year, 19 per cent of Toronto's traffic-related fatalities involved alcohol, and 31 per cent involved excessive speed. On average, three people die in Canada every day from drinking-and-driving-related traffic accidents.
"If we start to say this is a fact of life, we're in big trouble," said Detective Paul LOBSINGER of traffic services. "This is unacceptable."
Several grief counsellors spoke with students at Lincoln M. Alexander Secondary School in Mississauga yesterday, where Mr. MAHDAI formerly attended classes.
A memorial with his picture was set up outside the principal's office.
Academics were never Mr. MAHDAI's strong suit and he dropped out midway through Grade 12 in January. But he loved auto body class and dreamed of driving big-rig trucks across North America, said his uncle, Surindranath MAHARAJ.
His father's heart complications and mother's diabetes have kept the pair, immigrants from Trinidad and Tobago, out of work. Ravi often spent weekends unloading cake and bread from delivery trucks with his uncle to earn a bit of cash.
His siblings include a brother and five sisters ranging in age from 9 to 26. When one of them needed help, "everybody thought of Ravi," said his sister, Reshma, 22. "Ravi could fix it."

Alcohol suspected in crash
Teen spoke to his mother minutes before death
37-year-old driver now facing charges
By Curtis RUSH, Staff Reporter
Ravi MADHAI was on the cellphone to his mother just after 10 p.m. Monday. The 17-year-old Mississauga teen had been late getting home to help his uncle, who delivers baked goods. His family was worried.
His mom, Ragginni, finally got in touch with him, frantically asking where he was. "I said, 'When are you coming home?' And he said, 'Right now, Mommy,'" a distraught Ragginni said. "That was the last I heard."
Five minutes later, a crash ended his life.
MADHAI's mother didn't learn of her son's death until police arrived at the family home at 3 a.m. yesterday. They told her MADHAI was in the rear passenger seat of a Ford sport utility vehicle that had crashed on the westbound Gardiner Expressway just east of Park Lawn Rd. at 10: 22 p.m.
According to police, the sport utility vehicle was going too fast and swerved to avoid another vehicle, before overcorrecting, travelling across four lanes and smashing into the concrete barrier.
The impact drove MADHAI's head through the side window, and he was pinned between the barrier and the vehicle, suffering fatal head injuries.
The teenager didn't have a chance even though he was wearing a seatbelt, police say.
The driver and a 21-year-old man in the front seat, both Friends of the victim, were hurt only slightly. Alleging that alcohol was involved, police have charged the driver.
MADHAI, who had a brother and five sisters, had left home earlier to fix "someone's van," his mother said. Some in the family speculate that he wound up playing pool with the Friends.
The Grade 12 student at Lincoln M. Alexander Secondary School in Mississauga was "a go-getter" and a "jack of all trades," said his sister Reshma, 22.
Born in Montreal to parents originally from Trinidad, he moved to Toronto with his family in 1998.
"He wasn't a bad kid. He wasn't involved in any trouble. He was just stubborn, but he was turning his attitude around," said his aunt, Vashty MAHARAJ.
There was a sad twist the day after, as investigating detective Paul LOBSINGER appeared at a news conference after a sleepless night for the launch of a police road safety campaign, Operation Safe Journey, aimed at preventing such tragedies. One poster for for it advises: "Plan Ahead. Choose Your Ride."
Emergency personnel responded to 11,436 vehicle incidents in Toronto last year, up 8 per cent, Fire Chief William STEWARD/STEWART/STUART said at the news conference. "These numbers are alarming," he told reporters.
LOBSINGER agreed, expressing worry that drivers aren't taking the threat of an accident seriously enough. "These accidents take a toll on everyone," he said.
Also at the event was former member of provincial parliament David TSUBOUCHI, who lost his father in a still unsolved hit-and-run last year.
Carolyn SWINSON, co-president of the Toronto chapter of Mothers Against Drunk Driving, spoke of the accident that killed her son Rob in 1993.
The female driver who struck his Volvo was 2½ times over the legal alcohol limit and had held a driver's licence only 10 days.
She was acquitted because the judge refused to allow a breath test as evidence, SWINSON said.
And, just as it happened to the MADHAI family, a police officer came to deliver the news.
"My knees buckled and I fell to the floor," SWINSON recalled.
"My heart just goes out to this family. There's nothing more painful than the sudden death of a child."
In this week's case, Dawn Marie COX, 37, is charged with impaired driving causing death and dangerous operation of a motor vehicle causing death.
She appeared in court yesterday and was released on bail.

Police seek help in solving murder
By Tracy HUFFMAN, Crime Reporter, Page B3
Police are seeking the public's help to solve the murder of an 18-year-old man who was robbed and fatally shot when he went to an apartment building with a friend on April 30 to buy marijuana.
Although the two Friends co-operated with two masked robbers in the hallway of 35 St. Dennis Dr., near Don Mills Rd. and Eglinton Ave. E., gunfire erupted around 2 a.m.
Both suspects were armed with guns, but only one fired shots, said Det. Terry BROWNE of the homicide squad.
Haider MAHDI, of Mississauga, died later in hospital of a single gunshot wound to the abdomen.
"The motive of this homicide so far appears to be robbery," BROWNE said yesterday.
BROWNE said the stolen goods were minimal in value. MAHDI had no known gang affiliation and had no previous dealings with police, he said.
After the shot was fired, a struggle ensued between the two Friends and one suspect. The second suspect fled.
A construction worker, MAHDI came to Canada from the Middle East about four years ago.
BROWNE said police have seized video from security cameras throughout the area and are hopeful the suspects have been caught on tape.
The suspects are described as two men, between 17 and 20 years old. They are between 5 feet 9 inches and 6 feet. Both concealed their faces, but police believe they live in the area.
BROWNE urged the suspects to get a lawyer and surrender.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the homicide squad at 416-808-7400 or Crime Stoppers at 416-222-8477 or online at http://www.222tips.com.

Mom charged in kids' deaths
First-degree murder count laid after girls found in bathtub
Tamil community leader calls for more counselling programs
By Curtis RUSH and Nicholas KEUNG, Staff Reporters with files from Bob MITCHELL and the Star Library, Page A2
A 30-year-old Markham woman whose two young daughters were found dead in the family bathtub Thursday night has been charged with two counts of first-degree murder.
Sivananthi ELANGO remains in serious condition in Markham-Stouffville Hospital with self-inflicted slash wounds to her wrists and throat, York Regional police said yesterday.
Without giving specifics, Insp. Tony CUSIMANO said police have found evidence to support the first-degree charge, which implies an act committed with planning and deliberation.
Renu ELANGO, 2, and Movlika ELANGO, 3 months, died Thursday while their father was out on an errand. Their grandparents, who lived with the family, had come home, looked for the girls and heard only silence from the locked en suite bathroom, police sources said.
They summoned a basement tenant for help breaking in and discovered a horrific scene -- the mother bloodied, the children thought to be drowned. The tenant called 911.
CUSIMANO confirmed that paint thinner had been found in the room, but wouldn't comment on its significance.
He said it was too early to speculate on why the tragedy occurred, or whether the woman suffered from depression or post-partum psychosis. The latter, a serious mental health disorder that can appear after childbirth, has been linked to similar murder-suicide attempts.
Police say the family arrived from Sri Lanka around 1990. Neighbours said they had moved into the two-storey Sophia Rd. home, in the McCowan Rd. and 14th Ave. area, around Christmas.
The incident came less than a month after a Toronto man, Huc Minh CHAU, 40, was charged in the slaying of his wife, Shao-Feng LIANG, 38, and their two children. His sister has said she had tried to get CHAU committed to a psychiatric facility.
Since 1990, at least 22 children in Toronto alone have been killed by their mothers, with clinical depression implicated in many cases. Mental health professionals and community workers say the social isolation and lack of support felt by immigrant women may aggravate depression and economic stress that can lead mothers of any background to take such a terrible step.
"In any culture, there's always the social stigmatization associated with mental illness. But in some communities, people don't even have the language and translation (to speak about) mental illnesses," said Martha OCAMPO, of Across Boundaries, a Toronto ethno-racial mental health centre. "It is particularly difficult for the mothers, who are afraid that their kids would be taken away from them. The social expectation that a woman is the caretaker of the household just doesn't help."
David POOPALAPILLAI of the Canadian Tamil Congress said the community has been shocked by the tragedy, which follows an incident in July 2001 in which Jasotha MAHENDRIRAN was charged in the murders of her daughter Shyami, 5, and son Sajeev, 3.
"Even though our community is now more established than when we first came here 20-odd years ago, mental illness and things like post-partum depression are still very new to the community," POOPALAPILLAI said.
"We do need more counselling services. Some people still face the language barrier and have trouble accessing the mainstream services. Right now, we still don't have an expert in this health area in the (Tamil) community."

MAHER, William Verne Nelson
By Rudy PLATIEL, Page A16
Naturalist, volunteer, Scout leader. Born November 14, 1933. Died August 26, 2005, near Barrie, Ontario, of a heart attack, aged 71.
It's true that my friend, Nelson MAHER, "talked" to the ferns.
Hiking the rugged Bruce Peninsula on Ontario's Georgian Bay, the man known among his naturalist Friends as "The Fern Man" would often address these bashful little plants as though they were old Friends, calling them by their Latin names, talking about their particular characteristics and commenting on current habitat conditions.
This was not a case of eccentricity, but Nelson's method of memorizing all he could learn about the plethora of fern species that, along with wild orchids, have made "The Bruce" world-famous among naturalists and botanists.
Although Nelson never formally studied botany, his devotion to learning and love of these plants hiding in the bogs, fens, and rocky outcrops of the Niagara Escarpment of Grey and Bruce counties led university botanists to seek him out as a guide.
He and his wife, Jean, spent the last few decades guiding naturalist group hikes and sharing their knowledge, but Nelson remained protective of his beloved plants, revealing the location of rare or threatened species to only a trusted few.
In 2002, Nelson was contracted by the Ministry of Natural Resources to document the location of rare plant species in Grey and Bruce counties for the Natural Heritage Information Centre. Over the two-year project he found many valuable new sites unknown to the project staff. He also sparked a project to produce an atlas of heritage trees in his home city of Owen Sound, Ontario
The image of Nelson stooping gently to examine wild orchids and ferns symbolizes the man who spent his life caring not only for the area's natural heritage, but its human one as well.
Nelson's lifetime of volunteer work brought him an award early in 2004. Later that summer he received a Ministry of Citizen and Immigration Outstanding Achievement Award "for his exemplary achievement in volunteerism," including an estimated 1,000 hours refurbishing historic printing presses for a permanent exhibit at the Grey Roots heritage and visitor centre.
As a young boy he worked in his father's print shop and went on to become co-owner of a printing business, along the way publishing a valuable guide book on ferns and creating graphic illustrations of ferns that ended up on locally made T-shirts and even tourism banners hanging on Owen Sound's downtown streets.
As a young Boy Scout leader he initiated a winter camp-out for scouts in Owen Sound's Harrison Park that for 42 years became an annual event for at least two generations of father-and-son Scouts. Until he was 70, he took part himself in the overnight camping in January or February snow.
Nelson was a director of the Grey Sauble Conservation Foundation, an early member of the Sydenham section of the Bruce Trail, an active Rotarian for 20 years and a member of Saint John Ambulance. A husband for 49 years, Nelson had six children and 12 grandchildren. Predeceased by one grand_son, he is survived by his wife, Jean, and two sisters.
Each year most of the family joined Nelson in his other passion: making elderberry wine, a pastime that ultimately played a role in his death. Ill with cancer last August, he and Jean stopped in the country to pick elderberries for his next batch of wine. Separated in the berry patch, Jean heard the car horn sound and found Nelson inside the car struggling with a heart attack. She rushed him to the Grey Bruce Health Services centre where he died a few hours later.
Rudy PLATIEL is a friend of Nelson.

In loving memory of our Mom, Lorena M. WILSON.
Today recalls the memory,
Of a loved one gone to rest,
And those who think of her today,
Are those who loved her best.
The flowers we lay upon her grave,
May wither and decay,
But the love for her who lies beneath,
Will never fade away.
It's been 10 years Mom and we still remember and think of you always.
