Crash claims energetic A student
Phillip MacLACHLAN was a University of Western Ontario engineering student, water polo player and loyal friend.
By Patrick MALONEY, Free Press Reporter, Tues., January 17, 2006
An intern at Links Coatings, he died a day after a two-vehicle crash at Airport Road and Dundas Street.
The funeral of a top-notch University of Western Ontario student and promising engineer killed in a two-vehicle crash will be held tomorrow.
Phillip Nakahara MacLACHLAN, 22, a University of Western Ontario chemical engineering student and varsity water polo player, was badly hurt in the rush-hour collision at Airport Road and Dundas Street about 5 p.m. Thursday. He died of his injuries a day later.
A former professor recalled MacLACHLAN -- who had been interning full time with an Airport Road-area firm since May -- as a dedicated student with loads of professional potential.
"He is a good student, every professor knows that," said Jesse ZHU of University of Western Ontario's engineering department, who helped MacLACHLAN land the year-long internship at Links Coatings.
"He's an A student... and he's very quiet, but he's actually fairly active."
To his loved ones, MacLACHLAN, a graduate of Lucas secondary school, was an energetic person who worked nights at the Ceeps pub and always made time for his girlfriend, Friends and family.
"He just liked to keep himself active," said Jim MacLACHLAN, his older brother.
"He was always here for the family," Jim MacLACHLAN added. "He was an all-around great guy."
In addition to his studies and work schedule, MacLACHLAN was also president of a University of Western Ontario intramural sports club.
An endowment likely will be established in his honour to benefit future chemical engineering students, ZHU said.
MacLACHLAN's obituary notice painted him as a promising young man from a big London family -- he was one of Emmy and Fred MacLACHLAN's four children.
"He lived intensely in all that he did and will greatly miss his wonderful Friends at school and work," it read.
Visitation is scheduled for today, 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., at the Harris Funeral Home on James Street. The funeral is set for 1 p.m. tomorrow, followed by a private cremation.
MacLACHLAN was driving north along Airport Road, London police said, and about to turn left on Dundas Street when he collided with a southbound driver.
Investigators were probing the crash yesterday and details were sketchy, Const. Amanda PFEFFER said.
The second driver suffered minor injuries.
The Airport-Dundas intersection wasn't named on a list of London's top 20 crash-prone zones, released last week by Sgt. Tom O'BRIEN of the traffic management unit. But crashes there can easily result in serious injuries, O'BRIEN said.
"When I hear there's been a collision with injuries at Dundas and Airport, high speed and big vehicles come to mind. That's the problem," he said.

Man, 60, dies in early morning collision
By Patrick MALONEY, Free Press Reporter, Tues., January 17, 2006
A Londoner was killed and a veteran trucker badly shaken yesterday in an early-morning crash in Thames Centre that police are investigating.
Joe ANTONIO, 60, was heading to work in Dorchester shortly before 6 a.m. yesterday when his van broadsided a tractor-trailer reversing into a driveway along Westchester Bourne, Middlesex Ontario Provincial Police said. ANTONIO, whose vehicle was trapped under the rig, died at the scene.
"He's a very good brother and a very good father," Adelina ANTONIO said of her brother, who had a 21-year-old stepson and two other children, ages 13 and 10. "We are trying to cope with the loss because it was so sudden."
Skip LACHARITY, the veteran trucker who was backing his tractor-trailer onto his Dorchester-area property, was unhurt in the crash but obviously upset by the tragedy in the pre-dawn darkness.
"I'm not so sure it's sunk in yet," said LACHARITY, 54, who had been delivering flowers to grocers in London and Sarnia. "It was over in a heartbeat. It was a tragic thing."
The 16-metre-long trailer was outfitted with reflective stripes and marker lights, Const. Doug GRAHAM said. It was dark at the time of the collision and investigators were still piecing together how it happened, he added.
ANTONIO had worked at the same Dorchester factory for about 25 years, his sister said, and often pledged to retire within four years.
He moved to Canada from the Philippines in the mid-1970s, she said.

Chris DOTY had passion for London
By Patrick MALONEY, Free Press Reporter, Sun., February 5, 2006
Chris DOTY, the historian whose plays and documentary films chronicled London's past, was found dead in his home after taking his own life. He was 39. A staple on the local cultural scene, DOTY's death comes just before the latest play he wrote and produced, about London-bred pot activist Marc Emery, was to end its week-long downtown debut run last night.
"No one knows what he was battling… Forget about the ending and remember all the great things that led up to that," said Grant DOTY, Chris's younger brother.
It was his love of his hometown that defined Chris DOTY, those who knew him best said.
"Because he loved London so much, he wanted to find things that were interesting about it and promote it," Grant said.
Once called an "incisive, opinionated dynamo" by The Free Press, DOTY started his own production company, Doty Docs, in 1995 and found a niche in telling London's all-but-forgotten stories.
His work included award-winning documentaries on the Grand Theatre, London's disastrous 1937 flood and the 1939 royal visit.
He also focused on more commercial fare, including a film Chronicling the London Knights. In the past year, he wrote The Donnelly Trial, about the famed local slaying of the Donnellys, and Citizen Marc, about Emery's formative years in London.
Reached in Vancouver yesterday, Emery -- who first met DOTY decades ago and saw him last week at the play's premiere -- was stunned by the news.
"He had many movies left in him to make and many, many more plays," said Emery, who remembers DOTY as an intelligent, young customer at his City Lights bookshop.
"He was a wonderful person and a great credit to the London community. I'm honoured that his last work was the play about me."
John GERRY, who directed Citizen Marc, heard of DOTY's death Friday night from Jason RIP, the play's co-writer. A pre-arranged cast and crew party let all involved talk about DOTY hours later, Gerry said.
"It was pretty tough," he said. He expressed enormous respect for DOTY's work, calling him -- in reference to a famed U.S. documentary film maker -- "the Ken Burns of London. He presented (stories) the best way possible, and the most honest way possible."
The cast and crew "talked… about the incredible amount of spirit he gave (London)."
The final show of Citizen Marc's week-long run went ahead last night, Gerry said. "I just think, you know, out of respect for Chris -- this was his show. The actors, they wanted to do it."
Another DOTY project was the annual Brickenden Awards recognizing achievement in London's arts community. The latest ceremony was held Monday.
"Chris was a perfectionist. He always had high standards and expectations for every work," brother Grant said. "Myself and my mom were so proud of him. All the accolades he got, he deserved every bit."
Visitation is tomorrow at the John T. Donohue Funeral Home, 2 to 4 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m. The funeral is Tuesday at Metropolitan United Church, 11 a.m.

Chris DOTY revealed London
The historian and filmmaker was branching out into theatre when he died.
By Patrick MALONEY, Free Press Reporter, Mon., February 6, 2006
Chris DOTY's last work was also his best, say Friends left reeling by the sudden death of the noted historian, writer and London "treasure."
Though DOTY, 39, had spent little more than a year focused on stage productions, his latest script -- about London-bred marijuana activist Marc EMERY -- pointed to a future full of theatrical promise.
"We really did see him as having the Midas touch in theatre," said Jason RIP, who with DOTY co-wrote Citizen Marc, which ended its debut downtown run Saturday.
"He was really savvy. That's why he was such a success."
Another of DOTY's recent stage productions, The Donnelly Trial, was a rousing success and DOTY planned to reprise it this summer.
Citizen Marc was met with much praise, including by Emery himself.
But DOTY will likely be best remembered for his documentary films, an impressive body of commercially-friendly work that chronicled London's often unappreciated, and nearly forgotten, stories.
"He said, 'There's no point in doing something that people don't want to see," RIP said. "His real skill was his ability to promote."
As a friend and valued source to news reporters, DOTY was always available for a short London history lesson or a sharp, funny quote.
His sense of humour and appreciation for quirky, fascinating facts is also clear on his website, dotydocs.com.
Its content includes a list of the city's ghost legends, a catalogue of local Unidentified Flying Object sightings and stories of criminals in London executed for their crimes. It also details the storied history of such London hotspots as Wonderland Gardens and the Seven Dwarfs restaurant.
It's clear the man who brought London history to life won't be soon forgotten, said RIP, who is eager to see a "fitting tribute" to DOTY's work.
A remarkable attention to detail earned DOTY the respect of fellow historians.
He was cutting a similar swath in the city's theatre community, said Patsy MORGAN, who formerly lived with and dated DOTY.
"He touched so many of their lives," she said yesterday. "They all really, really respected him. There was so much for him yet to do and I just miss my friend."
Above all, however, DOTY had the admiration of his family, including brother Grant and mother Gwyneth.
"I was very proud of him," Grant said Saturday. "His work was just so superior to anything I could think of doing.
"He gave so much of himself. He truly loved London."
Visitation is today at the John T. Donohue Funeral Home from 2 to 4 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m. The funeral is tomorrow at Metropolitan United Church at 11 a.m.
Definitive DOTY
Among the work of London historian, documentary filmmaker and playwright Chris DOTY, 39, who died Friday:
Stage
- His scripts included The Donnelly Trial, about the unsolved 1880 massacre of the Lucan-area Donnelly clan, and Citizen Marc, about pot activist Marc EMERY.
- Established the Brickenden Awards, honouring the city's best theatrical work.
Film
- In 1995, established Doty Docs, a production company to "create and foster audio-visual projects about London's history."
- His documentaries chronicled local events, including the 1939 royal visit and the disastrous 1937 flood. They also spotlighted city institutions, including the Grand Theatre, London Knights and Storybook Gardens
Online
- His website, dotydocs.com, is full of quirky items about London, from Unidentified Flying Object sightings to a biography of big-band leader Guy LOMBARDO.
- Two long-lost sisters separated after the 1951 London execution of their father, Walter George ROWE, reunited after reading DOTY's online story about ROWE. " Give DOTY all the credit," an emotional Georgina ROWE said.

Dead farmer was 'real family man'
By Patrick MALONEY, Free Press Reporter, Tues., March 7, 2006
It had been a great few months for Wilfred KUIPERS: A surprise 50th birthday party, a well-established business and a planned family vacation down south.
But just before the Kuipers clan -- Wilfred's wife and kids, his brothers, sisters and mother -- was to leave yesterday for Florida, the Ingersoll man was killed in a weekend explosion that ripped through his Thamesford mushroom farm.
"We have just been full of shock," said sister-in-law Tracy KUIPERS, who called him a dedicated dad and well-liked boss. "He was a real family man and he loved his children -- he was very proud of them. He's going to be sorely missed."
Wilfred, who just turned 50, was one of five children raised by Tjeerd and Alice KUIPERS of Aylmer. He lived in Ingersoll with his wife, Dianna, and their four kids -- the youngest is in Grade 6 -- and ran the family mushroom farm.
For a second straight year, the whole extended family was travelling together, Tracy KUIPERS said. They were set to spend nearly two weeks in Florida and the Caribbean.
"The house has just been a constant flow of Friends and family" since Saturday, she said.
Wilfred loved golf and singing in a Christian choir, his sister-in-law said, and had an easy rapport with his employees.
"He loved to hear a good joke," said close friend Herb PIPPEL, who laughed while recalling Wilfred's 50th birthday party. "Everybody who was there wrote a poem for him. He had a wonderful time&hellip he couldn't get enough.
"He was a good friend to me."
Yesterday, Oxford Ontario Provincial Police investigators were picking through the rubble of the cement and metal building destroyed at Kuipers' Mushrooms Inc. near Thamesford. It could be Friday before they're done, said Const. Dennis Harwood.
A new heating system may have led to the blast, investigators said.
Because farm workers aren't included under Ontario's Occupational Health and Safety Act -- though they will be as of June -- the Labour Ministry isn't probing this explosion.
Instead, the investigation is being led by the Ontario Provincial Police with the help of the Farm Safety Association, the organization's president said yesterday.
"It's not like nobody will be investigating," said Dean ANDERSON of the Guelph-based Farm Safety Association. "(Ontario's) fire marshal hopefully will find the cause."

Teen driver killed
By Patrick MALONEY, Free Press Reporter, Fri., March 31, 2006
A single-car rollover killed a teenage driver and sent four passengers, including a five-year-old boy, to hospital last night, Lambton Ontario Provincial Police said.
Speed led to the crash, which happened about 8 p.m. in Lambton Shores, police said. The youngster was the only person wearing a seat belt, which police said explains the injuries suffered by the adults.
Rebecca PARSONS, 18, of Lambton Shores, was the driver. She died of her injuries.
The adult passengers -- Jenny PARKER, 28, Laura PARKER, 25, and Paul MADON, 28 -- remain in hospital today, Const. Luke GEORGE said. The young boy, Mason HODGKIN, has already been released.
“Speed is a factor in this collision,” GEORGE said. “A lack of seat-belt use is another factor in relation to the injuries.&rdquo

Woman injured in fire dies
Debbie ROBERTS, 50, is remembered as a caring mother and friend and a tireless worker.
By Patrick MALONEY, Free Press Reporter, Fri., May 26, 2006
The woman rescued by London firefighters from a townhouse blaze has died, her family said yesterday.
Debbie ROBERTS, 50, who was rescued without vital signs from the fire Wednesday in her Arbour Glen Crescent home, but then resuscitated, died in hospital yesterday, her daughter said.
"She was a mother of three, she was kind to animals, she loved her family and her Friends," Shelley WULF, 27, said emotionally from her Virginia home.
ROBERTS lived with her common-law husband, identified by Friends and family as Paul MOOD, in the townhouse at 99 Arbour Glen Cres.
Police at first said he suffered minor injuries, then listed him in critical condition. But his condition wasn't known last night.
Sparkles, the London cleaning service where ROBERTS had worked the last six or seven years, has established a bank account to collect donations. The money is for expenses related to ROBERTS, not her husband, said manager Tammy FERGUSON.
"(Our boss) just wants to be able to do something for them," FERGUSON said. "We just don't want (WULF) to have to worry financially."
ROBERTS' family is facing financial struggles that may keep the three children from travelling to London, she said.
FERGUSON recalled ROBERTS as a tireless worker and friendly colleague.
"Every day, whether she felt good or not, she was here," FERGUSON said. "She was a back-breaker, seriously. She didn't take any time off, she couldn't afford to."
The cause of the fire was still unknown as the Ontario Fire Marshal continued investigating yesterday.
Police offered no new details.
It was about 2 a.m. Wednesday when tenants in the townhouse complex which has about 18 units -- awoke to the rumbling of fire trucks. The fire gutted two townhouses, including ROBERTS'.
A report in yesterday's Free Press indicating units 99 and 100 were gutted was incorrect, one tenant said yesterday, noting they were 99 and 98.
Beyond some smoke damage, the fire was kept from spreading throughout the complex, owned by London radio personality Steve GARRISON.

Road worker electrocuted
The proud dad of three boys was spreading gravel when a truck touched a power wire.
By Patrick MALONEY, Free Press Reporter, Sat., July 22, 2006
A summer like any other for Pete SZABO -- sports with his three boys, a little boating, doing odd jobs for relatives -- ended tragically yesterday with a workplace electrocution.
SZABO, who worked for Lambton County's public works department, was killed after a dump truck's metal box, raised on hydraulics, touched an electrical wire, shocking him while he worked with a road crew near Alvinston.
"We just can't comprehend it all," said Trudy LADANCHUK, whose sister, Jo-Anne, was married to SZABO.
"He's a great dad… and a great husband.
"You can't imagine something like this happening."
Ontario Labour Ministry officials were investigating with the Ontario Provincial Police following the incident along Petrolia Line, between Nauvoo and Inwood roads, shortly before 8 a.m. yesterday. The road was closed for about five hours.
The dump truck was emptying gravel that SZABO, operating a machine that may have been touching the truck, was spreading along the shoulder of a newly paved road.
When the truck's box, or bucket, was raised to a 45-degree angle, it touched the line, police said. Though the shock killed SZABO, who was pronounced dead at the Petrolia hospital, the truck driver wasn't hurt, police said.
There were lingering safety concerns at the site for hours after. "There's the potential for the (dump truck's) tires to explode in the next 24 hours because of the charge they could be carrying," Const. Aaron McPHAIL said.
Lambton County officials expressed their sympathies in a statement. SZABO's death saddened everyone in the 35-person public works department, it said.
"We strive to ensure our employees are working in safe conditions. The (Labour) Ministry's report will be reviewed closely so that we can prevent tragic losses like this."
For SZABO, who loved his job, life mainly revolved around the activities of his three boys, ages 15, 18 and 21, who are heavily into sports.
"They (play) hockey, soccer, football. He liked taking the kids to that," Ladanchuk said. "He loved his three boys."
A native of Petrolia, SZABO was one of three children, including a twin brother, born to immigrants from the former Czechoslovakia. Helping them out, his sister-in-law said, was always a priority.
Just a day before his death, he visited his mother's home to hang a picture and fix a tap.
"He liked to fix things," LADANCHUK said. "Everybody's just basically in severe (disbelief)."

Dream dies with car crash
Jeffrey DAWDRY was working toward becoming a cop.
By Patrick MALONEY, Free Press Reporter, Wed., September 13, An Ingersoll man working toward his dream of becoming a police officer was killed in a car crash this week.
Jeffrey DAWDRY, who had volunteered since 2004 as an auxiliary officer with Waterloo Regional police, graduated only two weeks ago from the police foundations program at London's Westervelt College.
"About the last three or four years (his focus) was strictly to become a police officer," Garry DAWDRY said of his son yesterday. "He would have made a damn good one, too."
The 37-year-old DAWDRY was in Sarnia on Monday, working for a lawn care company, when his vehicle left the road and crashed, killing him.
His family was told he had a heart attack while driving.
A Huron Park high school graduate, DAWDRY grew up largely in Woodstock, but had moved to Ingersoll in recent years.
He's survived by his wife, Jennifer, and eight-year-old son, Ryan.
Family described DAWDRY as a smooth talker with a great sense of humour whose hobbies included playing horseshoes.
At Westervelt, where he had just completed the year-long police program, DAWDRY's death blindsided officials.
"We're extremely shocked and saddened," said Linda KALMIKOV, who oversees the police course and knew DAWDRY well.
"He was extremely well-liked by all the staff, all the officers who teach here and all his classmates without exception. Just a really dynamic individual."
The school's flag was at half-mast yesterday, KALMIKOV noted.
Auxiliary officers work alongside full-time police, but are unarmed and unpaid.
Waterloo police remembered DAWDRY, who worked mainly in the Cambridge unit, as a dedicated worker whose death has rattled the force.
"Jeffrey… committed a fair bit of his spare time (to making) Waterloo a better place to live," Insp. Bryan LARKIN said.
"He far exceeded the expectations of our organization."

Missing London boater's body pulled from lake near Erieau
By Patrick MALONEY, Free Press Reporter, Wed., September 20, A body found in Lake Erie has been identified as a missing Londoner who disappeared while boating with a friend last month.
Bill HENDERSON, 61, who owned his own renovations company, cast off from the Port Glasgow Yacht Club with longtime friend Joe MAJER on August 20 in HENDERSON's five-metre fibreglass boat. Soon afterward, marina owner Carol WOLF received a distress call, which triggered a huge police search.
But after four days -- during which the body of MAJER, 73, was found 13 kilometres offshore -- police called off the search for HENDERSON. Last weekend, a boater found a body floating near the small Chatham-Kent town of Erieau.
Police recovered the body Saturday about three nautical miles from shore and later identified it as HENDERSON, Ontario Provincial Police Const. Michelle SCOTT said yesterday.
That investigators, who scoured along the coast near Erieau on August 24, didn't find HENDERSON sooner underscores the difficulties of marine searches, she added.
"We have no control over the water and weather," SCOTT said, adding the original search grid didn't cover the eventual discovery spot. "That's what takes over the investigation."
HENDERSON, who had been Friends with MAJER since they were neighbours in the 1970s, was an experienced boater and hunter.
One day after the disappearance, HENDERSON was described by family as a "very, very experienced boater, fisher (and) hunter," who saw leisurely boat trips as "his escape."
"It was what he did when he could when he wasn't working," daughter Kara HENDERSON said. "His life was working, fishing and hunting."
The disappearances of HENDERSON and MAJER came almost exactly seven years after a 1999 boating mishap off Port Glasgow that killed five people. In that case, it was more than three months before all the bodies were recovered.
While this week's discovery was disappointing, police expressed some relief for HENDERSON's relatives.
"Obviously we always want to keep our hopes high (for) a positive ending," SCOTT said.
"It's unfortunate that it wasn't a positive conclusion, but at least it wasn't as long a wait for the family."

Arrested man dies in hospital
The Special Investigations Unit is probing the arrest of martial artist Mitchell KOH.
By Patrick MALONEY, Free Press Reporter, Fri., September 22, An accomplished martial artist and aspiring actor who was hospitalized after he was arrested by London police has died.
Mitchell KOH, 34, died Wednesday, the Special Investigations Unit, Ontario's police watchdog agency, announced yesterday.
The London man was taken to Victoria Hospital with critical injuries after being arrested September 12.
"The focus remains the same," said Rose BLISS, a spokesperson with the Special Investigations Unit, which launched its probe into the incident last week. "And that is to gather the facts and come to an understanding… of what is now a death."
A post-mortem is scheduled for today.
London police were called about 6 a.m. September 12 to a 7-Eleven store on Southdale Road where a man was "acting strangely," the Special Investigations Unit said. He was reportedly carrying two knives.
Three officers were involved in an "altercation" with the man, who then showed signs of what the Special Investigations Unit termed medical distress. He was taken to hospital, where he remained in critical condition for more than a week.
London police declined comment on the case last week, citing the Special Investigations Unit investigation.
The owner of a London martial arts studio yesterday recalled KOH, who often trained there, as a friendly, quiet person with a black belt in taekwondo.
"He was very friendly, very respectful," said Issam THABIT, who owns Integrity Taekwondo and learned of the death from KOH's family yesterday. "Everybody liked him, (but) at the same time he was very quiet. He just comes in, trains."
Though his sister declined comment yesterday, according to an online biography, KOH attained his black belt five years ago. He listed "information technology" as his occupation.
He also worked in films, playing the role of an assassin in the 1996 movie Expect No Mercy, starring well-known martial artist Billy Blanks. He also had an uncredited part in the film Serendipity.
The online profile also included a personal quote: "Learning to love yourself is the greatest love of all," it read.
The Special Investigations Unit is a provincial agency that investigates whenever police are involved in incidents that cause serious injury or death to civilians.
Two other incidents sparked Special Investigations Unit probes in London this year: the arrest of a man on July 1 and a van crash May 6 in which four people were hurt.
In both cases, London police were cleared of any wrongdoing.

Murder charge laid in Chatham shooting
By Patrick MALONEY, Free Press Reporter, Tues., October 31, 2006
A first-degree murder charge was laid yesterday in the weekend stabbing death of an expectant father described by kin as "a super guy."
Ryan STEELE, who would have been 27 next month, was stabbed outside a Park Street house in Chatham's east end early Sunday.
He leaves behind a girlfriend three months pregnant.
"Ryan was a very, very nice guy," Dennis STEELE said of his son, who worked at the International truck assembly plant. "He's going to be missed."
Though they rarely spoke of the excitement of impending fatherhood, Dennis STEELE says it was obvious the young couple was thrilled to be having a child.
"Just seeing their faces -- he was very excited about it, with this new baby coming on," he said.
People were at the Park Street home after the bars closed Sunday morning, police said.
STEELE was stabbed several times about 4: 30 a.m., police said.
Chatham-Kent police were still interviewing witnesses: yesterday, Const. Doug GUTTERIDGE said. Official autopsy results weren't known.
STEELE, who lived in Oakville in his high school years, grew up dreaming of playing professional baseball and the sport remained a passion, Dennis STEELE said.
The funeral is tentatively scheduled for Friday.
Mark LIST, 23, of Chatham has been charged with first-degree murder. He made his first court appearance yesterday.

Homicide ruling worries neighbours

The death of an elderly Saint Thomas man found in his apartment building elevator has been ruled a homicide, shocking other tenants.
Marcel LACHANCE, 77, was found dead Saturday in the Grand Central apartments at 294 Talbot St. Saint Thomas police originally said he may have died of natural causes.
But last night, investigators said the well-liked man -- known for riding on his trademark scooter -- died as a result of foul play.
"It's left the building in a state of shock," said Kay BAKER, 68, who knew LACHANCE to say hello.
"I quiver. I keep my door locked (and) I never used to. I just stay inside here."
LACHANCE lived on the seventh floor of the 12-storey complex attached to another apartment highrise.
Saint Thomas police were called to the building last Saturday after LACHANCE's body was found in the elevator.
One officer at the scene that day told reporters he believed the man died of natural causes. But it was ruled a homicide after a post-mortem at London's University Hospital yesterday.
LACHANCE moved out of the building a few years ago until his wife died, then returned, said Doreen CAIRNS, who also lives on the seventh floor.
She said he was friendly and had no problems with anyone.
"He was a very nice guy," said CAIRNS, 76, who lives with her husband.
"I used to tease him -- I told him he should get a trailer to go behind his scooter so he could give us women a ride.
"(This) is a scary thought, until they find out who did it."
Police are still investigating and issued a statement last night. A spokesperson declined comment.
"Police are reminding citizens… to be mindful of personal security strategies, such as looking doors…" it read.

Don't swerve for animals, police say after fatal crash
By Patrick MALONEY, Free Press Reporter, Wed. November 8, 2006
The death of a 20-year-old driver whose car crashed while swerving to avoid a deer has sparked another police warning about the increasingly common highway hazard.
There were six such collisions on local roads over 24 hours ending yesterday morning, including one that led to the death of Bradley SLOETJES of Lucknow.
"It can happen in any area," said Lambton Ontario Provincial Police Const. John Reurink. "It's a hazard we have to put up with. Be very careful and be watchful of the road ahead of you."
Lambton County roads have been littered with more than 100 deer-vehicle collisions this fall, including 25 last month. There were five more crashes there Monday and yesterday, police said.
No one was hurt in any of those collisions.
But a similar crash in Huron County proved fatal Monday night, police said.
It was shortly before 9 p.m. when a car driving along Lucan Line in Ashfield-Colborne-Wawanosh Township swerved trying to avoid a deer, police said.
The car went into a ditch, striking a utility pole and rolling several times. SLOETJES, 20, was taken to Wingham hospital, where he died.
Reurink urged drivers to avoid swerving when faced with a deer, or any other animal, on the road.
"The actual swerving (could) cause you to put yourself in a far more dangerous situation," he said. "You're changing the direction of your vehicle and you will lose control."
The period from September to November is considered deer-rutting season, when the animals mate and migrate.
The provincial transportation ministry says 24 people were killed in 22 collisions with wildlife over a four-year period ending in 2003.

Dead man recently lost son
Gary KAUFMAN, killed in an armed standoff, was mourning the death of his baby boy.
By Patrick MALONEY, Free Press Reporter, Wed., November 29, 2006
The Oxford County man killed during an armed standoff with police endured several recent stressful events, including the death of his newborn son, his family said yesterday.
Gary KAUFMAN, 36, was found dead in his Innerkip trailer late Monday, eight hours after police converged on his rural neighbourhood northeast of Woodstock amid "threatening complaints" involving an armed man.
"(Gary) really loved that little boy," KAUFMAN's stepmother, Lona KAUFMAN, said of young Elijah, who was born in April but died a month later.
The past few months, she added, had been "very stressful" for KAUFMAN.
A welder employed in Woodstock, KAUFMAN also split from his common-law wife -- Elijah's mother -- within the last month.
Ontario's police watchdog agency, the Special Investigations Unit, is investigating the extent of officer involvement in the death.
Oxford Community police and Ontario Provincial Police officers were called about 3: 30 p.m. Monday to the trailer KAUFMAN had been renting for the past year along Township Road 6 in Innerkip. They found him "barricaded" inside, the Special Investigations Unit said.
Police closed surrounding roads and evacuated residents of nearby homes before they started negotiating, the Special Investigations Unit said. It was just past 11 p.m. when officers entered the trailer to find KAUFMAN dead.
He died of a gunshot wound, the Special Investigations Unit said.
"There was no indication police discharged any firearms," said Rose Bliss, an Special Investigations Unit spokesperson.
An autopsy was scheduled for yesterday.
KAUFMAN moved into the trailer, which is only about two kilometres from his childhood home, to be closer to family, his stepmother said.
"He was down in St. Catharines for a few years, but he always loved to be home," Lona KAUFMAN said. "He loved it when he got this trailer… because he was home.
"He would either call or he would be up here (every day)."
Elio MADURA, who lives on the property and rented the trailer to KAUFMAN, yesterday described a stressful standoff during which he and his wife were forced out of their home overnight.
"He lived there but when this all happened, nobody actually knew who was there," MADURA said. "We had to leave (and) we didn't know what was going on.
"He kept to himself. I have nothing to say against him."

Owner killed in pursuit of truck
The London hit-and-run victim was determined to get his stolen pickup back.
By Patrick MALONEY, Free Press Reporter, Wed., December 13, 2006
A London police officer keeps watch at the home of Phil BOISMIER. (Derek RUTTAN, The London Free Press)
Phil BOISMIER said he knew who took his truck and he wanted to get it back.
But in a bizarre twist of fate that took his life, BOISMIER, 52, was struck while trying to flag down his white GMC pickup Monday night in what police yesterday called a hit-and-run.
"I saw him out there, waving his hands and that's the last thing I knew," said neighbour Tom HARTLEY, who was driving the retired General Motors worker along Rectory Street when they saw his truck nearby.
"Hit by his own vehicle… I wish I wasn't there."
HARTLEY got a call Monday from BOISMIER, his neighbour in a north-end subdivision, asking for a ride to help recover the truck he said was taken. Though HARTLEY didn't know their destination, he said he agreed to drive.
The two were driving north on Rectory Street, HARTLEY said, when BOISMIER spotted his truck ahead of them.
But with a train crossing Rectory and stopping traffic, the truck turned around into the south lanes, HARTLEY said. His passenger jumped out to flag it down and was struck near Little Simcoe Street.
A cabbie drove by soon after and called 911, he added.
"I'm pretty shaken," HARTLEY said, visibly upset by the incident. "(Police) told me on the way home (Monday) night that he had passed away."
Yesterday, police released a description of the truck.
The 2006 pickup police said was involved in the hit-and-run about 9 p.m. Monday was registered to BOISMIER.
The truck was later found and two people arrested, police said. No charges were announced yesterday.
Police yesterday were stationed outside BOISMIER's home on Idylwood Road, a short street just northeast of the intersection of Highbury Avenue and Huron Street.
Several nearby residents called BOISMIER, who retired from General Motors about three years ago, friendly and well-known throughout the neighbourhood.
"He came and met us when we moved in -- nice guy," Andy JAMES said. "A nice guy, but a little different."
Added another neighbour, identifying herself only as April: "He was definitely a person that went around the neighbourhood saying 'Hi' to everyone."
The probe continues, police said. Anyone who saw the collision is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 519-661-8477.

Rash of fatals plagues area
A woman killed in Oxford County is the latest victim.
By Patrick MALONEY, Free Press Reporter, Wed., December 13, 2006
Another driver was killed yesterday on an Oxford County road, one of several deaths in the region over the past week.
It's unlikely weather played a role in the collision between a car and minivan on Highway 19, near Tillsonburg, about 10: 30 a.m. yesterday, police said.
"It was clear and dry at the time," Oxford Ontario Provincial Police Const. Dennis Harwood said.
Both drivers were removed from their vehicles by firefighters, police said, and the woman driving the car died at the scene.
Her name wasn't released, pending family notification, police said.
The minivan's driver, Marilyn CLARKSON, 43, of Tillsonburg was flown to Victoria Hospital in London with undisclosed injuries.
Her two passengers, Stephanie CLARKSON, the driver's 18-year-old daughter, and Jason SCOTT, 21, of Tillsonburg, were treated and released.
Oxford County's rash of bad crashes started last Thursday when two 20-vehicle pileups occurred -- almost simultaneously -- on separate sides of the Highway 401 near Woodstock. Eight people were hospitalized, including one with critical injuries.
A 49-year-old Aylmer man died the next day while a 15-year-old girl was killed in a rollover Saturday near Norwich.
There was also a pair of crashes Sunday: Stanley PONTING, 81, was killed in a collision near Norwich that sent four others to Tillsonburg hospital.
Hours later, a 73-year-old woman suffered critical injuries in a crash at Norwich and Base Line roads. The woman, who hasn't been identified, remained in critical condition yesterday, police said.
While he didn't comment on the causes of those crashes, Harwood offered a warning to others hitting the road this winter.
"Driving is a full-time responsibility," he said. "People need to concentrate on their driving whether it's good weather or bad weather."

Woman dies, child spared
An autopsy will determine whether medical factors may have led to the death of Barbara WICKERSON, 73.
By Patrick MALONEY, Free Press Reporter, Wed., December 20, 2006
A two-vehicle crash claimed the life of a woman yesterday morning at Thirteen Mile and Wonderland roads. (Mike HENSEN, London Free Press)
Birr -- A London-area woman is dead after a two-vehicle crash near here yesterday that also affected a three-year-old girl.
Barbara WICKERSON, 73, was driving east along Thirteen Mile Road at 10 a.m. when her eastbound sport utility vehicle collided at Wonderland Road with a minivan heading south, Middlesex Ontario Provincial Police said.
An autopsy today will examine if medical factors may have contributed to the death of the Middlesex Centre woman, officers said at the scene, about seven kilometres north of London.
Her injuries, they noted, didn't appear severe enough to have been fatal.
Three generations of the same family were in the minivan, including Nikaia SIRE- RODRIGUES, 3, of Toronto. Her mother, Marcie SIRE, 30, and grandmother, Harolyn SIRE, 59, of Lucan, were hurt.
The toddler was properly strapped into a car seat and that likely saved her from injury, Ontario Provincial Police Const. Chris HUNTER said. "It's just great to see the compliance from parents" to the provincial car seat laws."
Long stretches of road around the rural intersection were closed for hours yesterday as Ontario Provincial Police investigators examined the scene.
The minivan, which had been heading south toward London, came to rest several metres from the road in an open field. The sport utility vehicle, with major front-left damage, ended up nearby.
No charges will be laid, Const. Doug GRAHAM said.
