Four homicides, one long night
Police chase leads in garage slaying of man, woman
Other victims are man who was shot, Brampton mother
By Thulasi SRIKANTHAN, Meghan HURLEY and Betsy POWELL, Staff Reporters with files from Jim WILKES
Virgilo CUEVAS often used the garage of his home for refuge, and to smoke -- and that's where he and a female "acquaintance" were shot dead, leaving Toronto police searching for a motive and the killers.
"We're still working on a couple of theories, but there's nothing concrete that I can say yet," homicide Det. Wayne FOWLER said yesterday.
CUEVAS, 31, and a 56-year-old woman were found lying on the concrete floor of the attached garage of a house near Steeles Ave. E. and Markham Rd. on Wednesday night. Police were waiting to notify next of kin yesterday before releasing the woman's identity.
Meanwhile, police on the other side of Toronto were investigating the Wednesday evening slaying of a man in his 40s, and Peel Region police were probing the death of a 31-year-old mother of two whose body was found early yesterday.
A man identified by Friends as Gerald McDONALD may have been killed over the cash he was carrying when he was shot in an apartment building on Weston Rd. near Eglinton Ave. W., a friend speculated.
"He had $1,700 in his pocket. Maybe someone knew that he cashed his cheque and that he had this money," said Nancy IANNRELLA, owner of Nancy's Bar and Grill, next to the apartment.
McDONALD had been released from jail just two hours before he was killed, she said, and had dropped into the bar before going to cash the cheque.
Police were called to the building at about 7: 23 p.m. Wednesday after someone reported hearing gunshots.
The victim died in hospital yesterday.
About 90 minutes later, in Scarborough, CUEVAS' wife, Maria, found her husband and his friend after she drove up to the house around 8: 45 p.m. Wednesday.
The garage door was partly open, and when she drove in she could see one of the bodies, FOWLER said.
She then went inside, where the couples' three young children were with their grandparents.
FOWLER said no one in the house is a suspect.
CUEVAS was home all day and had gone on his own into the garage, where he was joined by the woman.
"The purpose of her visit, I don't know," FOWLER said. She doesn't live nearby and was driven to the address. The wife knows "her husband's friend" by sight.
There was no romantic relationship, he added.
witnesses: described two men, of Asian or Filipino descent -- as were the victims -- wearing light-coloured jackets or jerseys running away from the scene.
No firearms were located.
The wife's father, who asked not to be identified, said he saw his distraught daughter early yesterday morning.
The only thing she would say was that her husband was gone. "That's all," her father said. "She was crying really hard."
The children do not really know what is going on, he said. Two of them are staying with him. "They are sad, they cannot sleep."
Neighbours say they often saw the children running around the red-brick home, cycling and spending time with their father in the backyard, where they often barbecued.
Yesterday, a shiny blue bicycle with training wheels sat on the freshly cut lawn.
"Nothing like this ever happened on this street before," said Darrell RUBIO, who has lived there for three years. He said the family held a lot of parties, and there were always people coming in and out.
Rayne DOOKIE was in her home relaxing when she thought she heard a loud noise.
"I heard a shot. I thought it was a car backfiring." She said she quickly dismissed it because she couldn't imagine anything like a murder happening in their quiet neighbourhood.
Councillor Raymond CHO was going door-to-door in his ward to reassure citizens.
"I was totally frustrated, shocked and angry, because this is a good community," he said.
Meanwhile, Peel Region saw its fourth homicide this year with the death of Malena MORALES, whose body was found in a 12th-floor Brampton apartment early yesterday.
Police found MORALES's body showing "obvious signs of trauma" when they responded to a call at about 2 a.m., said Const. Jennifer BRYER.
Homicide detectives sealed off the building, on Steeles Ave. W. near Hurontario Street, and officers canvassed other residents throughout the day.
Residents said the woman lived with a man and two children, but it was not known whether she was married.
Two boys, a 10-year-old and his younger brother, were being cared for by relatives as police searched for a male suspect.
"This used to be a good building," said a woman who has lived there 16 years.
"But it's been going downhill for the last year or so. There have been a lot of drugs and dealers and the police have been here many times."
An autopsy is planned today at the Centre of Forensic Sciences in Toronto.
The gunning-down of the man Friends called McDONALD, whom police have not officially identified, makes him the fifth homicide victim killed somewhere along Weston Rd. in just a few months.
On July 2, a 25-year-old man was gunned down outside a bar on Weston south of Rogers Rd.
Three men tried to steal the money being collected at the club's front door, police said. A second victim caught in the crossfire was taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
On June 13, police found Clive McNABB, 39, stabbed to death in his Weston Rd. and Eglinton Ave. W. apartment, just steps from the scene of Wednesday's shooting.
A week before McNABB's death, 22-year-old Gabriel JARAMILLO was shot dead in the area around Weston Rd. and Lawrence Ave. E. Peyton BADIRU, 26, has been charged with second-degree murder in that case.
And at the end of March, Romaine LAWRENCE, 18, was killed when bullets tore through the window of a pizza parlour at Weston Rd. and Eglinton Ave. W.
"We've been directing our resources along that stretch of Weston Rd.," Staff Sgt. Gary MULHOLLAND, of 12 Division, said in response to a question about the cluster of homicides.
"Over the past few years we've had initiatives to lower violence and we will continue to do so."
MULHOLLAND said that while it is "unsettling for the neighbourhood," the violence mostly seems related to activities of criminals in the area. "It's not just the average citizen walking down the street."
That's little comfort to McDONALD's bar-owner friend, since he was shot steps away from where she works.
Someone came running into the bar screaming to call the police after the shooting, IANNRELLA said.
She was working when it happened and saw the victim in the hallway when she went upstairs.
"I can't sleep because I'm in such shock because it happened in my neighbourhood," IANNRELLA said.
"I know when I go home in the night I get scared."

Scarborough's first policewoman'feisty'
A widow at 38, she worked to support her children as part of Toronto's so-called 'Powder Puff Patrol'
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
Some smart aleck once thought Evelyn Morden JOHNSTON was driving too slowly. He was right on her tail as she proceeded sedately at precisely the speed limit along a Scarborough side street, before he floored it, crossed the centre line and cut in front of her. Then he slowed right down. He no doubt thought he was giving the little old lady a well-deserved taste of her own medicine and he couldn't have been more wrong.
Deftly and swiftly she overtook him and blocked his way with her car, forcing him to stop. Then she coolly got out and arrested him.
He had just met his match -- and Scarborough's first policewoman.
JOHNSTON had worked stakeouts, undercover, in the youth and women's bureaus. She'd taken the sharpshooting medal at police college. A trim five-foot-one, she was unarmed when she single-handledly arrested a young man for flashing in a public park.
Her granddaughter, Karen BOUCHER, grew up admiring her unconventional Nana. "She was very much a trailblazer, feisty, almost unstoppable."
She'd been a traditional wife and mother until 1950, when her husband, Howard MORDEN, was killed in a car crash on Sammon Ave. in Toronto's east end. A young man with a car full of girls had run a stop sign and smashed into their car. MORDEN put his arm out to hold back his wife and was thrown out of the car, which rolled on him.
At 38, she was left with two children -- Shirley, 21, and Fraser, 19. Friends urged her to find work. She applied for the job of secretary to Scarborough's police chief, got it and was soon conscripted to frisk and escort women prisoners.
Finally her chief told her she was doing the work of a policewoman so why not become one.
"I'm too old," she told her daughter.
"I'll help you study," Shirley replied. "We'd sit at the kitchen table and I would ask her questions from her books." In 1960 MORDEN graduated at the top of her class. She was 50 years old and went back to work at Scarborough's 41 Division in what was then the Metro Toronto Police force.
"I was always worried about her," said her daughter. "Once she phoned and was whispering. She said she was at a stakeout down by the waterfront. I think it was a drug bust. I was scared to death." Usually though, her workday was more routine, even deskbound.
Women officers were still a rarity. The first two had joined Toronto's force in 1913, and their numbers had yet to top 50 when MORDEN joined. When she retired in 1974, there were 63 policewomen and 3,504 male constables. It wasn't until 1975 that women joined the rank and file. Their rank was changed to police constable and they were allowed to carry a gun, where before they'd carried a leather baton in their purse and wore a navy serge jacket, skirt, lisle stockings, white gloves and perky hat.
"In those days women were in very few beats," said Gina BELLAMY, who joined about a decade after MORDEN. " They directed traffic between Eaton's and Simpsons and patrolled Union Station ticketing illegally parked cars."
The policewomen's bureau was located in the old 13 Division station at Markham and London Sts., the only division that housed women overnight. The division had one car, known as WB1, and the policewomen were responsible for handling wayward members of their sex.
But on March 5, 1962, an American documentary was televised across North America. It was called the Powder Puff Patrol and it was all about Toronto's policewomen. The logo was a gun, lipstick and compact. There were shots of policewomen powdering their noses and hovering over typewriters.
MORDEN was featured going undercover as a bag lady, wiping her nose on the sleeve of her ill-fitting coat, with stockings furled at her ankles, shopping bags and a kerchief over a wig. Bureau chief Sgt. Fern ALEXANDER told the cameras MORDEN was "always efficient and always proper" but "just ham enough to be loving" going undercover.
The show's enthusiastic announcer hailed every policewoman's patience and pronounced them "here to stay," while the police chief of the time, James MacKEY, declared they were "excellent public relations officers for our city."
For years the Toronto force used the film for recruiting. "[The film] is an absolute howl," said BELLAMY, who hails the women as true pioneers. Her former husband worked with MORDEN. " Bernie always said that if Ev did a (police) check then it would be done perfectly."
MORDEN worked in the complaints bureau in her final years on the force. She retired in 1974 at 64, having married Insp. Walter JOHNSTON. They met while both worked at 41 Division; JOHNSTON moved to Oshawa to become police chief, later returning to Toronto when he was nominated for the Police Commission. They moved to Mississauga. Eight years later when JOHNSTON died of cancer, she moved to Beaverton near her daughter and her family.
At 90, she was still out shovelling snow. "You could never tell Nana not to do something," said BOUCHER with a laugh.
She died August 15 at age 95.
She had requested a police chaplain at her funeral, and there were also two uniformed police officers as honour guard and a Toronto Police piper. Later, when Shirley was going through her mother's personal effects, she discovered that Toronto Policewoman #5518 was still an active member of the police revolver club.
