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.

ROBERTS, William Hardy
By Roy MacSKIMMING, Page A26
Husband, father, bookseller, poet, gentleman. Born September 8, 1931, in Aberdeen, Scotland. Died November 9, 2005, in Burritt's Rapids, Ontario, of natural causes, aged 74.
Along with his deep knowledge and love of literature, Bill possessed a kindly charm and keen sensibility. He could read his customers a mile away. He'd emerge from the rear of the store, tall, elegant and bearded, and gently introduce them to just the authors they were looking for -- even when they hadn't yet realized it.
Bill raised Ottawa's literary standards. His clientele ran from John Diefenbaker and Lester Pearson to Pierre Trudeau and Ed Broadbent. When the Prime Minister's Office or the Department of Foreign Affairs needed a gift for a visiting V.I.P., they knew whom to call. And over the years, Bill mentored a new generation of booksellers.
Bill was a complex, multifaceted man: a very private person yet a loyal friend and boon companion; a businessman yet an accomplished poet. Growing up in wartime in the English industrial city of Leeds, he was an autodidact who immersed himself in books. His friend Gordon BULLOCK recalls Bill as a perfect gentleman, even as a teenager: "Dressing in tweeds, smoking a magnificent pipe, wearing a stylish hat, all of which gave him the air of a young academic."
Bill moved to London, where he reported for the Fish Fryers Gazette and frequented the theatre. A friend of his, a penniless young actor named Peter O'Toole, slept on his floor while seeking parts in the West End.
In search of better prospects, Bill emigrated to Canada in 1954 with Gordon BULLOCK, who would become publisher of the Hamilton Spectator. A few years later Bill was happily working at Leishman's. As Mr. BULLOCK puts it, "He'd travelled 3,000 miles to find his true home." Bill bought the business in 1961 in partnership with Peggy BLACKSTOCK, raised its stature, and moved the store uptown near Parliament Hill.
Farsighted and imaginative, Bill ROBERTS became a force for innovation and professionalism in the book trade. In 1972, he opened satellite stores in Ottawa and Victoria under the name Books Canada, selling exclusively Canadian titles. He was elected president of the Canadian Booksellers Association, fostered bookseller education, and promoted publisher-bookseller co-operation in bringing electronic commerce to the industry.
Although he was serious about business, Bill's first love was literature. Ottawa poet William HAWKINS recalls Bill approaching him after a reading to share his enthusiasms for Eliot and Auden. The two became Friends, and Bill shared his own poetry with Mr. HAWKINS, who was struck by its craft, wit and poignancy.
Another colleague, bookseller-turned-publisher Al CUMMINGS, became a close friend. He and Bill travelled widely together in search of history, art, good cigars and fine scotch. They marked the millennium by flying from New York to London on the Concorde, visiting galleries and theatres, and returning on the Queen Elizabeth II. Bill immortalized their adventures in a satirically nostalgic verse, Like-Minded Gents.
Bill enjoyed the tranquillity of life with his wife Carole and daughters Stephanie and Victoria in the small village of Burritt's Rapids near Ottawa. For some years after he sold Leishman's in 1992, he and Carole ran a lovely antiquarian bookshop in nearby Merrickville, but Bill's failing health eventually caused them to retire. One of his last and most moving poems begins: I hope the better part / Of who we are / May be remembered.
Writer Roy MacSKIMMING is a colleague and friend of Bill ROBERTS.

No motive apparent in garage double killing
Scarborough deaths and fatal shooting in West End bring city homicide total to 38
By Timothy APPLEBY and Scott ROBERTS, Page A10
Toronto's homicide total for the year has risen to 38 after a middle-aged woman and a 31-year-old father of three were found slain in a blood-soaked garage on a quiet Scarborough street.
The shooting took place late Wednesday. In an unrelated gun incident earlier the same evening on the other side of the city, a man newly released from prison was shot in the head. He died of his injuries yesterday.
Both of the Scarborough victims, believed to be Canadians of Filipino origin, were shot in the head and were discovered by the man's wife when she returned home, police said. The relationship between the two deceased was not clear, police said.
Two assailants believed to be Filipino or southern Asian, wearing light-coloured shirts, were being sought.
Detective Mike BARSKY of the homicide squad discounted widely circulating suggestions that the female victim -- identified by other police sources as Isabelita MALEJANA, 56, of west-end Toronto -- was a transsexual or transvestite. "I don't know where that came from," he said.
A former neighbour said Ms. MALEJANA was married with children. The family used to live on Embro Drive, near Allen Road and Sheppard Avenue.
"It's so sad that this happened," said Emily, who spoke on the condition that her last name not be published. "She was very quiet. She didn't come out of the house very much. The family kept to themselves for the most part."
Emily said the family moved away from the area about a year-and-a-half ago, but she didn't know where they had been planning to relocate.
Speculation that the crime was a murder-suicide is false, Det. BARSKY said. However, no motive was immediately apparent.
The second victim was identified as Virgilio CUEVAS, whose wife discovered the bodies at 58 Canoe Cres., near Steeles Avenue and Markham Road, when she opened her garage door at around 8: 40 p.m. and called 911.
Mr. CUEVAS and Ms. MALEJANA were pronounced dead on arrival at Sunnybrook hospital.
Neighbours described seeing a bloody scene inside the garage after police arrived.
"I came outside and ran across the street and saw the police running with their guns out," said Jupiter ENGRACIA, who lives down the street from the house.
"There was a body in the garage with blood spattered everywhere."
When emergency crews removed the other body, it was wrapped in a blanket, Mr. ENGRACIA said.
Ammunition was reported to have been found in the home, but police said there was no sign of a gun at the crime scene.
The couple's three children, all believed to be under 5, were in the house at the time and were uninjured.
Late in the evening, police removed them from the family home. Neighbours said they often saw Mr. CUEVAS playing outside with his children.
Yesterday, police tape cordoned off the front yard of the home as a police cruiser guarded the area. A lawn mower and three small bicycles sat in the yard.
Neighbours said they were shocked that such a gruesome slaying could happen in this quiet, newly built subdivision.
"This is scary; it's just two houses away," said Darwin RUBIO, "My wife wants to move…. This makes her want to move more so."
Separately on Wednesday night, a man in his 40s and just freed from jail for breach of probation was also taken to Sunnybrook hospital in critical condition.
Shot and wounded in an apartment above a bar on Weston Road near Eglinton Avenue, he succumbed to his wounds yesterday.
The man's identity was not immediately released, pending notification of relatives, but a friend who said she knew him well gave his name as Gerald McDONALD.
Four unidentified youths were spotted fleeing that crime scene. The incident was the latest in a rash of recent fatal shootings in the Weston Road area.
The three deaths push the city's firearms-related tally close to the same number as was recorded this time last year. In total, 52 people died as a result of gunshot wounds in 2005, an all-time high.

Officer shot dead, 2 teens in custody
By Peter EDWARDS in Windsor Nicolaas VAN RIJN in Toronto with files from Scott ROBERTS, Camille ROSS and Canadian Press, Page A1
A Windsor police officer who "couldn't wait to go to work" was shot dead yesterday afternoon while coming to the aid of a harassed family operating a Mac's Milk convenience store in a residential section of the border city.
Two 18-year-old male suspects are in custody and a gun has been seized, Windsor police Insp. Greg RENAUD told a news conference last night.
Const. John ATKINSON, 37, the father of two young children, is believed to be the first officer in the more than 120-year history of the Windsor force to be killed on duty, said Windsor police Chief Glenn STANNARD, who noted three other officers have died in car accidents.
As word of the 14-year police veteran's death rippled across the border city, the shock was palpable.
"Today the entire city mourns the loss of a dedicated individual, a committed individual who put service above self," said Windsor Mayor Eddie FRANCIS.
Police said the incident, at 2: 05 p.m. in a parking lot near Seminole St. and Pillette Rd., in a residential neighbourhood about half a dozen blocks south of the Detroit River, began when ATKINSON approached two men.
According to local residents, ATKINSON, who lived in the neighbourhood, was responding to a call for help from the Middle Eastern family who operated the milk store. They'd complained of being harassed by "white kids," neighbours said; when they told ATKINSON about it he suggested they call him if it happened again.
They did, and he responded quickly to confront the two men, neighbours said, producing his badge and identification. That's when one of the two men allegedly pulled a gun and shot him.
STANNARD said ATKINSON "approached these individuals and during this time a firearm was produced and Const. ATKINSON was shot. Const. ATKINSON was struck by a bullet, but was able to return fire."
"The two suspects," STANNARD added, "were seen fleeing the area on foot after the shooting, leaving the officer lying on the sidewalk. And it is possible, when the suspects were fleeing, some items were discarded, such as clothing."
Two 18-year-old Windsor men -- uninjured -- were arrested shortly afterwards during a massive police search, and a firearm was recovered, but police won't say if the weapon was related to the shooting.
Investigators also wouldn't say how many times the officer, assigned to the provincial anti-terrorism section, was hit. But local residents said ATKINSON was hit at least twice, once in the throat and chest.
Dennis ROCHON was sitting on his balcony in a nearby apartment building when he heard three loud shots. Rushing outside, he found ATKINSON on the pavement.
"There was no movement," ROCHON said. "There was blood all over the place. It looked like he got shot in the throat and the side of the chest. You could tell he was dead."
Another man, identified only as Terry, said he saw ATKINSON struggling, stumbling three or four metres before collapsing.
"He tried to get up, and he fell again," Terry said.
Lloyd MENARD, in the store at the time, thought he was hearing things when the gunfire broke out.
"At first, a couple of people thought they were just like poppers on the ground, but no, it was actually gunfire," he said. "My truck's got blood all over it, so those kids must have shot him right there."
After the two suspects were taken into custody, Special Weapons and Tactics teams scoured the neighbourhood for a possible third participant in the shooting, but police later said there may only have been the two suspects.
ATKINSON, a senior constable who started with the force as a cadet, was known as a "good cop," STANNARD said.
The chief, FRANCIS, a chaplain and several of ATKINSON's on-the-force Friends visited the slain officer's wife, Shelley, and his children yesterday afternoon in an effort to console the family. ATKINSON's daughter Nicole turned 7 this week; his son Mitchell is 9.
During the family visit, STANNARD said, tears flowed freely.
"You do what your heart leads you with," STANNARD told reporters last night when asked about the visit.
"It's a tragic thing, and I think the best I can do is say you share tears, and you share hugs."
STANNARD said he and the Windsor police honour guard will be in Toronto, as planned, for the annual memorial ceremony of remembrance at the Ontario Police Memorial tomorrow at 10: 45 a.m. The memorial, at Grosvenor St. and Queen's Park Circle E., commemorates Ontario police officers slain on duty.
"Our honour guard and I will be attending… obviously with heavy hearts," the chief said.
