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

PRESTON, Sheila Delia K.
By Ann SILVERSIDES, Page A16
Executive medical secretary, mother, friend. Born June 29, 1922, in Howth, Ireland. Died September 18, 2005, in Toronto, of complications after a fall, aged 83.
Sheila never knew who her father was, but speculated that she was the illegitimate daughter of a murdered Irish patriot. This wasn't necessarily just the romantic daydream of a woman who was never told the identity of her father. After all, her mother Delia's close Friends included William O'BRIEN, the Irish member of Parliament, journalist and author (1852-1928), and his wife Sophie, also an author. William and Sophie were Sheila's godparents, and she and her mother spent holidays with the O'BRIEN's at their home in Mallow. After William died, and Delia married Joseph O'ROURKE, Sheila continued to spend most of her boarding school holidays with Sophie, who dedicated one of her books to Sheila.
While working at the War Office in London, Sheila fell in love with a Canadian, Royal Canadian Air Force pilot Lou H. PARKER, and made plans to return to Canada with him. PARKER was shot down and killed in the spring of 1945, but remained the love of her life. A black and white photo of the two of them in uniform, standing in a doorway, was on her bedside table after her death. An immaculate and stylish dresser all her life, Sheila rarely went out without her Royal Canadian Air Force wing pin on her lapel, in memory of her great love.
Sheila married another Canadian on the rebound, and came to Canada when she was pregnant with her first child, daughter Leueen. That union fell apart several years after their son, Kevin, was born with Down syndrome. Sheila never remarried.
She worked as a secretary in Chalk River, Ontario, and then, in the early 1960s, with my father at the Addiction Research Foundation in Toronto. That association let to her lifelong Friendship with our family, with many holiday visits to our log house near Perth, Ontario
Sheila was fiercely intelligent with an extraordinary memory that made lesser mortals (like me) feel woefully ignorant. She kept up to date about current affairs and was a student of history especially military, particularly aviation. She scribbled margin notes in her many books about the Second World War, commenting on (and often disputing) the facts.
She was fierce in her devotion to Kevin, who, as an adult, lived in a Toronto group-home until his death in 2001. It saddened and angered Sheila that some of Kevin's group-home peers were virtually abandoned by their families.
After working for physicians at several Toronto hospitals, Sheila ended her career at St. Michael's Hospital. Family practice residents of the late 1970s to late 1980s will no doubt remember her organizational skills and her insistence on good manners.
In retirement, Sheila made several trips home to Ireland and was interviewed by Irish radio about her memories of her famous godparents.
An early tenant of the St. Lawrence neighbourhood, Sheila spent the last 15 years of her life in subsidized housing for seniors in east-end Toronto. She was grateful for the housing and railed against the "sheer stupidity" of politicians who chose not to understand that adequate housing is the key prerequisite to health and well being. She wrote about these concerns to politicians and media figures, and gave a significant portion of her limited income to charities she approved.
Sheila didn't suffer fools, but was noted for her small courtesies and thank-you notes to those she appreciated.
Sheila was predeceased her son and is survived by many Friends as well as her sister Margaret, daughter Leueen, son-in-law Bill and grandchildren Michael, Kathleen and Patrick.
Ann is a friend of Sheila PRESTON.

LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY, Doctor Robert Neil
Dr. R. Neil LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY, noted consultant to the pool industry in Canada and the United States, passed suddenly Tuesday, March 28, 2006. The Newmarket, Ontario, resident had just returned home from a day-long session at a Toronto hotel teaching water chemistry to pool operators when he collapsed. He was 67. At the time of his death, Doctor LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY was serving as principal-in-charge of Lowry and Associates, a nationwide distributor of specialty chemicals which has exclusive representation of Taylor Technologies' water-testing products in Canada; owner and chief educator for the Lowry School of Pool and Spa Chemistry; and a contributing writer and commentator for numerous trade publications, most notably Pool and Spa Marketing magazine. He was an active member of the Pool and Hot Tub Council of Canada and the only Canadian voting member of the Association of Pool and Spa Professionals' Recreational Water Quality Committee whose water quality guidelines are followed by public pools and spas throughout North and South America. He also served as an advisor to the board of directors of the Professional Pool Operators of America. Doctor LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY's ability to make a complicated subject understandable for the average person was coupled with an enthusiasm for his subject matter that most people could not resist, and this made him a sought-after public speaker. Most recently he took part in a panel discussion on preventing recreational water illnesses at the 26th annual Canadian Pool and Spa Conference in Toronto. Said Richard HUBBARD, the Markham, Ontario-based publisher of Pool and Spa Marketing, 'Neil was one of the pool industry's finest and most respected educators, and one of its greatest Friends. He was passionately devoted to elevating the understanding of water chemistry among aquatic facility managers, public health inspectors, and pool builders, service companies, and pool supplies retailers. He always said, 'Over ninety percent of pool problems are caused by poor water chemistry.' Without him, the level of discourse in our industry will be diminished.' His influence on Canada's $1.2-billion-a-year pool and spa industry is pervasive. Dr. LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY contributed to the present regulations for public spas under the auspices of the Ontario Ministry of Health. He also designed the model labels for pool products regulated under the federal Pest Control Products Act. He was the original author of 'Pool and Spa Chemistry: A Testing and Treatment Guide,' widely regarded as the Bible of water quality management. Over the course of 26 years, thousands across Canada became certified pool water technicians by his pool school.
Robert Neil LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY was born in Windsor, Ontario, to Mac and Marjorie LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY and was a loving big brother to David Kent LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY and Lynda Jane PARKER. He earned a bachelor of science degree in chemistry from the University of Western Ontario in nearby London; a doctorate in inorganic chemistry from Cornell University in Ithaca, New York; and a master's in business administration from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. But Neil LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY was no ivory tower academic. He spent the early part of this career with three Canadian chemical companies: first in pool chemical sales at Kert Chemical Industries, Inc., then as pool chemical products manager at Swan Recreational Products Limited, and finally as technical services director for Mursatt Chemicals Limited. He established Lowry and Associates in 1985 with his wife Gabriele as his business partner. Lowry and Associates became the master distributor for Taylor Technologies in Canada in 1989, but the two firms' relationship goes back even further. 'Neil and I worked together for 26 years,' said a saddened Paul WOODEN, president of Taylor. 'He was more than a trusted business associate. He was a good friend to me, and to many others at Taylor. He was an incredibly smart man and so funny! We loved spending time with Neil at the end of a long day at a trade show; he kept us in stitches with his jokes and parlor tricks. His sudden passing has left us all numb with grief.' One of his Friends at Taylor was marketing Vice-President Patricia FITZGERALD. 'Dr. LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY had a fierce intellect and a blunt manner of speaking that took some getting used to. He was an avid reader, a student of history, and always up on current events. In a debate of any kind he took no prisoners. But if he had the roar of a lion, he also had the heart,' FITZGERALD reminisced. 'I will miss him greatly.' He met Gabriele ADELMANN in Boston, Masssachusetts, and the pair married shortly thereafter in July 1972. While growing their business together they also grew a family, producing sons Michael and Derek, now ages 30 and 28 respectively, and daughter Sarah, age 17. He was a devoted husband and father. When Mackenzie, 3, Andrew, 18 months, and Erik, 1 month, were born to Michael and his wife Jennifer, the grandchildren became his pride and joy.

PARKER, Peggy
Peacefully on April 20, 2006 in her 96th year in Cobourg, Ontario. Predeceased by her brothers John and Peter, and sister Barbara survived by sisters-in-law Claire and Marion. Much loved aunt to Nancy, Jay, Jane, Charles, George and Patricia, and great aunt to Kirsten, Anya, Laura, Joel, Timothy and Shacha. Peggy was born in Brentwood, England, and moved with her family to Montvale, New Jersey at the age of 10. Later, she attended Bishop Strachan School in Toronto, followed by nursing school at the Wellesley Hospital. For the most part, Peggy spent her nursing career at the Bridgewater Hospital in Lunenburg County, Nova Scotia. She eventually moved to nearby Petite Riviere, where Peggy cared for her mother, Madeline, for many years. The local Anglican Church of Saint Michael was also an important part of Peggy's life. She came to Cobourg late in her life, where her brother Peter was living, but we will always remember Peggy from our trips to "Petite", and she remains dear in our hearts.

BELL, Thomas Edward James (1941-2006)
After a valiant battle against cancer, our dad, husband, brother, and friend passed away Friday, June 30th at Sunnybrook Hospital. He was a loving husband and friend to Pam (née TAIT/TAITE/TATE,) a wonderful father and mentor to Catherine BELL (Kent BROWN,) Jennifer BELL (Jeff BURZYNSKI) and Kimberley BELL (Wes PARKER,) and a fabulous grandfather to John and Michael BROWN, Sidney and Grayson BURZYNSKI, and Keara PARKER. He was a cherished brother to Carolyn McLENNAN (Peter McLENNAN) and he loved and was loved by his nieces and nephews. Tom was predeceased by his parents, Tom and Lillian BELL. After completing his B.Sc. at McGill University, (fun filled years of fraternity and playing Redman hockey), Tom began his career in business. He was a seasoned marketing, sales, and operations executive who had a passion for entrepreneurial opportunities. Tom greatly enjoyed various challenging positions that took him across Canada and around the world. Tom had a sincere love of nature. His cottage at Big Gull Lake was particularly special to him. He was a keen observer and had a deep understanding of the natural world. He was happiest in the outdoors - at his lake or in the garden. Tom will be remembered by his daughters as the best dad ever - from hours spent teaching them how to water-ski to offering his wise counsel on life's more complex issues. He was patient, reassuring, and most definitely their greatest fan. For those who knew him well, he will be missed for his passion and fight for life, his genuine positive attitude, his twinkling eyes, and bright smile. We would like to thank Doctor BERRY and his team at Sunnybrook Hospital and Doctors KOCHA, REID, and LOGAN and their team at the London Health Sciences Centre for their exceptional efforts. Tom's care at both facilities was outstanding and we would like to express our gratitude and appreciation to all of the nurses involved in his care. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to the London (Ontario) Health Sciences Neuroendocrine Program, 800 Commissioners Road East, P.O. Box 5010 London, Ontario, Canada N6A 5W9. A memorial service will take place on Wednesday, July 5th at 1: 00 p.m. at Lawrence Park Community Church in Toronto.

MILES, James Edward
Dr. James Edward (Jim) MILES passed away peacefully on October 19, 2006 at Lions Gate Hospital, North Vancouver, British Columbia after a brief illness. Jim will be sadly missed by his wife, Gail; children Stephanie MILES (John SHERSTOBITOFF), Peter MILES and Hilary MILES; step-sons Brent (Tracy) PARKER and Michael (Tamara) PARKER. Jim was a devoted and loving grandfather to Laura, Kelly and Sara SHERSTOBITOFF, Rebecca and Jackson PARKER and Alaina PARKER. He will be much missed by his brother Garry (Barbara) MILES of West Vancouver and sister Marilyn MARTIN of North Vancouver and many nephews and nieces. Jim was born November 6th, 1928 in Victoria, British Columbia, the first child of Edgar and Winona MILES. He spent his early years in Victoria, Vancouver and Kamsack, Saskatchewan. Jim attended the University of Saskatchewan in pre-med, where he obtained his Bachelor of Science. He completed his medical degree at McGill University in Montreal. After a number of years as a successful family physician on the North Shore, he decided to pursue his interest in psychiatry, moving his young family to Kent, England for a year where he finished his training at Maudsley Hospital. Jim had a long and distinguished career in his new field. He became a full professor and head of the Department of Psychiatry at Shaughnessy Hospital in 1976 where he developed the Affective Disorders Clinic, now the Mood Disorders Association of British Columbia. Five years as the head of the Department of Psychiatry at University of British Columbia began in 1985 where he mentored many of Vancouver's currently practicing psychiatrists. During this period he held positions on many boards, committees, and panels contributing to his favorite occupation, his profession. He was instrumental in establishing a research Chair in Schizophrenia at University of British Columbia and psychiatric outreach programs in the interior of the province. Jim published many academic articles in various medical journals and of late, some very humorous pieces as well. After retiring from University of British Columbia as a Professor Emeritus, Jim established a private practice in North Vancouver. At the age of 76 he retired permanently, bringing to a close a career where he had given so much to so many. Jim had an abiding devotion to his family and had many interests including owning and training thoroughbred horses, sailing, reading, Bridge, history, art and doing cryptic crosswords. He had recently taken up oil painting and what he may have lacked in technique he more than made up for in speed, proudly dashing off one canvas after another. He was a man of great wit, intelligence, charm and presence. Jim will be lovingly remembered and greatly missed by his family and his wide circle of Friends. The family wishes to offer profound gratitude to the staff at Lions Gate intensive care unit for their kindness and support. A celebration of his wonderful life will be held on October 29 from 3 to 6 p.m. at Capilano Golf and Country Club, 420 Southborough Drive, West Vancouver, British Columbia. In lieu of flowers a donation to the Mood Disorders Association of British Columbia, #202 -- 2250 Commercial Drive, Vancouver, B.C., V5N 5P9, or the charity of your choice, would be appreciated.

Hilary KILBOURN, 53: Creative to the end
Adored daughter of rebel alderman Bill KILBOURN
Sensitive painter 'could capture people' in her art
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
She was born into Toronto royalty, certainly its establishment, a statement that would not have made her wince because it honours her father.
And Hilary KILBOURN worshipped her father.
When Bill KILBOURN died in 1995, "it was as if the history of our lives was passing in front of us," Rosedale member of Parliament Bill GRAHAM said at the time. It meant that and more to KILBOURN's second child, who was so grief-stricken she was hospitalized for two days.
Passionate about Toronto, Bill KILBOURN was a rebel alderman on city council in the '70s, David Crombie's time, when Toronto had an exciting future and its politicians the courage to fight developers to preserve its past.
Founding chair of York University's humanities department, author of 14 books, with Friends and admirers in the usually disparate worlds of the arts, politics, academia and media, he was often dishevelled as he rode his bike through Toronto winter traffic without an overcoat. But at the same time, he helped stop the Spadina Expressway and the planned Pickering Airport.
He lived with his wife, Elizabeth, an Anglican minister, and five children in a rambling three-storey house in south Rosedale with a dining room painted a shocking black for a while, modern art on all the walls, wolf skins on the living room floor, singsongs round the piano, political discussions around the table and hockey on the rink in the backyard.
"It was magical," said Francesca Mallin PARKER, whose family lived in the next block and who became fast Friends with the KILBOURN sisters, Hilary and Philippa. "We were a gang of three."
Though she was the youngest, Hilary was their leader because she had the verve, the artistic passion and talent. There was always a painting on an easel set up in the bedroom and playroom on the third floor that she shared with her sister.
"Often her zeal for artistic expression was unable to be contained and spilled over onto the walls and ceilings of her house," recalled George HATHAWAY, who moved in across the street in 1976.
It was always understood within her family, and by her Friends, that Hilary was -- and was going to be -- an artist. "Right from the beginning she was always drawing -- princesses and witches. Dad kept a lot of them," said Philippa or Pippa, her sister. (There were also three sons: Nicholas, Timothy and Michael.)
Their father adored Hilary, taking her along to official functions if his wife was unavailable. An intellectual descended from prominent Toronto industrialists, he was thrilled to have an artist in his family. "They were very much soulmates," said Pippa.
Tall, lively and lovely -- with dimples, fair hair and an entourage Hilary was a sophisticated presence in the halls of Jarvis C.I., her poetry and art winning awards and filling the school magazine and yearbooks.
"I felt lucky that she accepted my Friendship. I was in awe of her," said writer Ann SILVERSIDES. "It was all rather exotic to me, a kind of J.D. Salinger-ish household full of brilliant individuals."
Activists, politicians, artists, people were often in their living room -- even Pierre Trudeau swung by on his first campaign to be prime minister.
Hilary thrived on the excitement on the home front as well as from her own social whirl of poetry readings and formal dances. There was every reason to believe a fine future lay ahead of her studying art and drama at York University's brand new fine arts program.
But Hilary's "incredibly fertile existence," as her sister described it, began to crumble when she was 22 and spending time in Findhorn Community, a religious retreat in Scotland. She came home and was hospitalized after experiencing her first episode of mania, now known as bipolar disorder.
It had been building for a while. Her friend Mallin PARKER remembers seeing "an episode of misery like I've never seen" when Hilary, in university, sank to the floor, weeping. "She was crying and hysterical and in such emotional pain that literally she couldn't stand."
Her illness dogged her the rest of her life as she fought it and fought to retain her creativity. She gained a lot of weight as a result of her medications. She was in and out of many hospitals and almost as many apartments until 1983, when her father got her a house on the Toronto Islands.
There she found her place. Her home was one of the original island houses, a blue cottage with purple trim and a bathtub out back on Wyandot Ave. Typically, there were usually two or three other people living there with her. She was subsisting on a government disability pension, but she felt blessed to have her island home and therefore obligated to share it.
In a community of characters, everybody knew her -- outgoing, friendly, bumming a cigarette, riding her bike, pointing her video camera anywhere she could record another moment of life in her community. In turn, they kept an eye out for her, knowing when she wasn't taking her medication, helping her during her ensuing mania and at times psychotic episodes.
In 1994, she produced a half-hour film with original music about life on the island, past and present. "She would come here, hands shaking, and video-film The old still photographs I had," said self-styled island archivist Albert FULTON. "And I was amazed at what a professional production it was."
Her father died January 4, 1995, three days before her film was aired on a local cable channel.
She was always sketching, but she was extraordinarily modest about her art, often giving it away because she valued it so little. Her portraits were vivid, passionate. Pippa KILBOURN says Hilary's best work was a larger-than-life portrait of their father looking like rebel leader William Lyon Mackenzie. "She could capture people. She had such sensitivity she could penetrate the personality," she said.
On Thursday, February 2, she died in her sleep. She was 53.
Her funeral wasn't held at the island's church, St. Andrew-by-the-Lake. Instead her mother, Pippa and brothers, and several hundred of her Friends gathered at St. James Cathedral. Hilary KILBOURN loved the island and that church, but it was too small and there was no doubt that the cathedral was really the appropriate place to say goodbye to her. For it was there that several hundred people had also gathered, back in 1995, to mourn the passing of her father.

LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY, Doctor R. Neil
Noted consultant to the pool industry in Canada and the United States, passed suddenly Tuesday, March 28, 2006. The Newmarket, Ontario resident had just returned home from a day long session at a Toronto hotel teaching water chemistry to pool operators when he collapsed. He was 67. At the time of his death, Doctor LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY was serving as principal-in-charge of Lowry and Associates, a nationwide distributor of specialty chemicals which has exclusive representation of Taylor Technologies' water-testing products in Canada; owner and chief educator for the Lowry School of Pool and Spa Chemistry and a contributing writer and commentator for numerous trade publications, most notably Pool and Spa Marketing magazine. He was an active member of the Pool and Hot Tub Council of Canada and the only Canadian voting member of the Association of Pool and Spa Professionals' Recreational Water Quality Committee whose water quality guidelines are followed by public pools and spas throughout North and South America. He also served as an advisor to the board of directors of the Professional Pool Operators of America. Doctor LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY's ability to make a complicated subject understandable for the average person was coupled with an enthusiasm for his subject matter that most people could not resist, and this made him a sought-after public speaker. Most recently he took part in a panel discussion on preventing recreational water illnesses at the 26th annual Canadian Pool and Spa Conference in Toronto. Said Richard HUBBARD, the Markham, Ontario-based publisher of Pool and Spa Marketing, "Neil was one of the pool industry's finest and most respected educators, and one of its greatest Friends. He was passionately devoted to elevating the understanding of water chemistry among aquatic facility managers, public health inspectors, and pool builders, service companies, and pool supplies retailers. He always said, 'Over ninety percent of pool problems are caused by poor water chemistry.' Without him, the level of discourse in our industry will be diminished." His influence on Canada's $1.2-billion-a-year pool and spa industry is pervasive. Dr. LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY contributed to the present regulations for public spas under the auspices of the Ontario Ministry of Health. He also designed the model labels for pool products regulated under the federal Pest Control Products Act. He was the original author of "Pool and Spa Chemistry: A Testing and Treatment Guide," widely regarded as the Bible of water quality management. Over the course of 26 years, thousands across Canada became certified pool water technicians by his pool school. Robert Neil LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY was born in Windsor, Ontario, to Mac and Marjorie LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY and was a loving big brother to David Kent LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY and Lynda Jane PARKER. He earned a bachelor of science degree in chemistry from the University of Western Ontario in nearby London; a doctorate in inorganic chemistry from Cornell University in Ithaca, New York; and a master's in business administration from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. But Neil LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY was no ivory tower academic. He spent the early part of this career with three Canadian chemical companies: first in pool chemical sales at Kert Chemical Industries, Inc., then as pool chemical products manager at Swan Recreational Products Limited, and finally as technical services director for Mursatt Chemicals Limited. He established Lowry and Associates in 1985 with his wife Gabriele as his business partner. Lowry and Associates became the master distributor for Taylor Technologies in Canada in 1989, but the two firms' relationship goes back even further. "Neil and I worked together for 26 years," said a saddened Paul WOODEN, president of Taylor. "He was more than a trusted business associate. He was a good friend to me, and to many others at Taylor. He was an incredibly smart man and so funny! We loved spending time with Neil at the end of a long day at a trade show; he kept us in stitches with his jokes and parlor tricks. His sudden passing has left us all numb with grief." One of his Friends at Taylor was marketing Vice-President Patricia FITZGERALD. " Dr. LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY had a fierce intellect and a blunt manner of speaking that took some getting used to. He was an avid reader, a student of history, and always up on current events. In a debate of any kind he took no prisoners. But if he had the roar of a lion, he also had the heart," FITZGERALD reminisced. "I will miss him greatly." He met Gabriele ADELMANN in Boston, Masssachusetts, and the pair married shortly thereafter in July 1972. While growing their business together they also grew a family, producing sons Michael and Derek, now ages 30 and 28 respectively, and daughter Sarah, age 17. He was a devoted husband and father. When Mackenzie, 3, Andrew, 18 months, and Erik, 1 month, were born to Michael and his wife Jennifer, the grandchildren became his pride and joy. Derek LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY and his spouse Sheila STARRETT are both involved in running Lowry and Associates; Michael LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY too is following in his father's footsteps by being a part of the industry. "We all have not only lost a loving husband, father and grandfather we have also lost our very best friend." A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. on Monday, April 3rd, at the Old Mill Inn, 21 Old Mill Road, Toronto, in the Brule A Room on the first floor (416-236-2641). All Friends and colleagues are welcome. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the First Church of Christ Scientist, Etobicoke, where Doctor LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY was a member. Arrangements entrusted to the Roadhouse and Rose Funeral Home, Newmarket, (905-895-6631) www.roadhouseandrose.com

Female remains found in trash bags
Post mortem reveals 39th murder of the year was 20-year-old woman from Toronto
By Steve RENNIE, Staff Reporter
Toronto police painted a gruesome portrait yesterday of the city's 39th murder of the year.
A 20-year-old woman was stabbed in the neck multiple times and dismembered, said police.
Her remains were strewn in several garbage bags and left at a North York housing complex for days until trash collectors found them Friday.
Homicide Det. Wayne BANKS says the collectors became suspicious after noticing the weight of the bags.
"The bags were found by the contractors, they were moved a slight distance before the body was found inside the bags," he said.
Officers from 23 Division were then called to the Martin Grove Estates, a housing complex on John Garland Blvd., south of Finch Ave. W. in the city's west end, where they confirmed the bags contained human remains.
Banks says the bags appear to have been in an alley backing on to Martin Grove Rd. for "a few days" before the body parts were found.
Police seemed to be focusing their investigation Friday on three garbage bags and a black bag with the word "Sport" written on its side in white lettering.
Yesterday, the yards of many of the peach-bricked residences were littered with garbage bags, which weren't collected Friday because police had cordoned off the area. Several residents of the complex said it's not unusual for garbage to sit in the alley until it's picked up on Tuesdays and Fridays.
Rosey MORSALEN lives in a unit near the spot where the remains were found. She says the bags, which were swarmed by flies, had been there since Tuesday but she only really noticed the smell in the early hours of Friday morning.
"It smelled like fish or meat or something," she said. "But it wasn't that."
A post mortem conducted Friday and forensic testing revealed that the cause of death was stab wounds to the neck.
She has been identified as Yasmin ASHAREH, 20, of Toronto.
Ray PARKER, who's lived in the complex for nearly 30 years, says incidents like this make him question the neighbourhood's safety. He says the area has become more rundown since he moved in.
"Well, yeah, we've had problems over here with drug dealing and that sort of thing," PARKER said.
One resident, who declined to give her name, says she never walks alone through the labyrinthine walkways of the housing complex because she fears for her safety.
Still, the woman doesn't think anyone in the neighbourhood had anything to do with the crime.
"If I killed her, do you think I'd leave her at my front door?" the woman said, gesturing to another female occupant of the house.
No one from Bonita Management, which oversees the property, would speak to the Star yesterday.
BANKS says there's no evidence the killing was gang-related. He says police will continue investigate the housing complex and the surrounding area.
"We're keeping this a very broad-scope investigation. We're looking in the general area where the body was found, and then any information that comes in," BANKS said.
"We're not going to just focus in to one certain area."
