CONWAY steps up for Attack
Backup goalie gets call minutes before 7-2 Owen Sound win
By Bill WALKER, Sun Times sports editor, Thursday, March 30, There really wasn't any time for Neil CONWAY to get nervous.
The 18-year-old Owen Sound Attack goalie was all set to take his customary seat at the end of the bench Wednesday where he would watch veteran overager Michael OUZAS start against the Kitchener Rangers.
But a bout of the flu made it impossible for OUZAS to keep anything down, which meant CONWAY had five minutes warning that he'd be the Game 4 starter in the Ontario Hockey League playoff series.
“Sometimes it's better to just get out there into the game without knowing but I had an idea that I may have to go in,” CONWAY said after being named the game's second star for a 35-save performance in the Attack's 7-2 victory over the Rangers.
“After the first couple shots I felt pretty comfortable.&rdquo
OUZAS left the ice with three minutes remaining in the warmup Wednesday. He was evaluated by team doctors and was diagnosed as having the flu and being dehydrated.
He's listed day-to-day.
“The decision was basically made after warmup so nobody had any time to dwell on it,” said Attack coach Mike STOTHERS.
“When a guy is threatening to vomit in the crease, or worse, you just can't do it so Neil had very little time to prepare. To his credit, he's been putting in so much extra time that it's great to see him rewarded.&rdquo
The Attack now have a commanding 3-1 lead in the best-of-seven Western Conference quarterfinal series.
Game 5 is set for Friday in Kitchener. If necessary, Game 6 will go Saturday in Owen Sound. Game time at the Harry Lumley Bayshore is 7: 30 p.m.
The Attack started the game with a sense of urgency, looking to give their sophomore goalie an early lead.
Jeff KYRZAKOS and Bobby RYAN put Owen Sound up 2-0 eight minutes into the game, but the Rangers tied it as Cory KONECNY and Matt AUFFREY scored 3: 12 apart late in the period.
“There are a lot of adjectives I could use (for this game) but most of them aren't appropriate for audiences,” said Rangers' coach/general manager Peter DEBOER.
“They faced some adversity with their backup goalie going and they found a way to get a win. It's eerily like Eric PFLIGLER coming in here last year,” he said, a reference to the Rangers backup who took the team to the conference final last season.
Andrej SEKERA gave the Attack the lead with 1: 28 remaining in the first when the puck squirted out from behind the net and he was able to shovel it past a startled Rangers goalie Dan TURPLE.
Mike ANGELIDIS made it 4-2 in the second when he stepped out of the penalty box and took a pass from SEKERA, breaking in alone and beating TURPLE with a backhand high to the glove side.
Owen Sound blew it open in the third as ANGELIDIS scored his second of the game, this one shorthanded. KYRZAKOS scored his second 10 minutes later on a two-man power play and centre Scott GILES finished it off with a late shorthanded marker.
“Our special teams worked and I think that was key,” said ANGELIDIS. “You have to give credit to Neil CONWAY. He stepped up huge for us.&rdquo
TURPLE made 26 saves on a night when he got little help from his defence.
“I feel bad for (TURPLE) because he's a guy who battled all year for us and we really hung him out to dry,” said DEBOER.
“I think we had an opportunity here to change the momentum of the series, but we would have had to show up and get off the bus and be ready to battle. Our big players who have not been big in the first three games had an opportunity to come in here and turn the series around. We didn't get contributions from anybody.&rdquo

First gun death of 2006 comes early
A 21-year-old North York man was shot in his car early yesterday morning.
By Kim BRADLEY, Special To The Free Press, Mon., January 2, 2006
Toronto -- Not more than five hours after ringing in the new year, a 21-year-old man was gunned down in the driver's seat of his Cadillac DeVille yesterday.
Dillan Yhanike ANDERSON of North York was pronounced dead at Sunnybrook hospital after he was found slumped over in the driver's seat of his car in an alley at Eglinton and Locksley avenues, east of Dufferin Street, around 5 a.m.
"Here we are just into 2006 and already there is another mother planning to bury her son," said homicide Det. Steve RYAN. " It's sad. It's the first homicide of the year and we have a long year ahead of us. I'd like to get it solved quickly."
Residents expressed concern that Toronto's rash of gun violence from last year has spilled over into 2006 and their neighbourhood.
"It's ridiculous," said Maria HERRETT who, after celebrating New Year's Eve at Nathan Phillips Square, slept through the gunshots fired below her apartment window.
"It's getting to the point where you can't even walk down the street," she said, adding she first started noticing the escalating crime of 2005 after Jamal HEMMINGS, 17, was shot November 9 at Eglinton and Marlee avenues, not far from yesterday's murder.
"I was scared to take my (eight-year-old) daughter downtown for New Year's," HERRETT said. "Everyone's talking tough, but what is really being done?"
At the New Year's Day levee, Mayor David MILLER said he was disappointed to learn of yesterday's murder.
"Every shooting fills me with sadness and this one again appears to be connected to the gang and the gun trade. It tells me that the things we're doing are the right things -- we just have to get them moving."
RYAN said police believe whoever shot ANDERSON walked over to the car and opened fire.
He couldn't say how many times ANDERSON was hit until after today's autopsy.
The car's driver's side window was shattered and there was a bullet hole in the windshield.
"I think someone approached the vehicle and shots were fired from outside the car," RYAN said.
Forensic officers spent most of yesterday sifting through the snow around the car, looking for bullet casings. At one point they called in a steam truck to melt the snow around the car.
Police are looking to talk to anyone with information about ANDERSON's movements before he was shot.
ANDERSON was known to police. In 2003 ANDERSON and a 17-year-old were arrested in connection with the robbery and shooting of a man near Jane Street and Wilson Avenue. The victim in that case survived.
Last year Toronto had 78 murders, 52 involving shootings. The city didn't record its first murder in 2005 until January 14.

RYAN, Jack (February 20th, 1929-December 1st, 2004)
In loving memory of a Dear Husband, Father and Grandfather who passed away two years ago today.
We do not need a special day
To bring you to our minds
The days we do not think of you
Are very hard to find.
Little did we know that morning
The sorrow that day would bring
The call was sudden, the shock severe
To part with the one we loved so dear.
We did not see you close your eyes
Or hear your last faint sigh
We only heard that you were gone
Too late to say goodbye.
Our hearts still ache with sadness
Our silent tears still flow
For what it meant to lose you Jack
No one will ever know.
Sadly missed by wife Lorine, by children Trevor, Angie, Colin, Margaret, Julie and Mike and grandchildren Marissa, Taylor, Noah and Jacob.

Web clues in club shooting mystify police
By James RUSK, Page A10
Toronto police said yesterday that they have pictures of a man they suspect shot another man dead in an illegal after-hours club on Weston Road early Saturday morning.
They just don't know who he is, Detective Sergeant Gary GIROUX told a news conference at police headquarters.
He said that witnesses: in the community directed police to an Internet site on which the photographs of the suspect were posted.
The suspect, described by the police as a Hispanic in his late 20s or early 30s, is "extremely, extremely dangerous to the community. He is a high-risk to reoffend violently," Det. Sgt. GIROUX said.
The suspect is wanted in connection with the shooting of Gabriel JARAMILLO, 22, just before 6 a.m. Saturday in an after-hours club at the rear of 1806 Weston Rd., near Lawrence Avenue West.
"The deceased was involved in a physical fight within the premise of the after-hours club, not with the shooter, with another male, who had been in the company of the shooter throughout the evening. The shooter intervened in the fight, and shot the deceased a number of times at extremely close range," Det. Sgt. GIROUX said.
Mr. JARAMILLO was pronounced dead at the scene, and an autopsy performed yesterday morning concluded that he had died of a gunshot wound to the head, Det. Sgt. GIROUX said.
The shooter and his friend were last seen on Weston Road.
According to the police, the suspect who fired the shots has a dark complexion, is 5 feet 8 to 5 feet 9, weighs 180 pounds, and has a thin nose, thin face, slight goatee, dark curly hair and tattoos with the word "libertad" on his arms, chest and the back of his neck.
His friend is described as a Hispanic in his late 20s or early 30s, 5 feet 8 to 5 feet 9, 200 pounds, lighter complexion than the shooter, wider face, big build, muscular, with a long, dark-brown ponytail just below the collar and one earring.
Also yesterday, police said they have made an arrest in another homicide committed in the city on the weekend.
Detective Sergeant Steve RYAN of the homicide squad said that Patrick BRADLEY, 25, has been charged with second-degree murder after his mother, Colleen BRADLEY, 59, was stabbed to death in her North York apartment near Keele Street and Sheppard Avenue West.

No one will talk about daylight killing
By Betsy POWELL, Crime Reporter
A wall of silence was erected at once, leaving police stumped as to who is responsible for a midday shooting in a small townhouse complex that ended the life of a 22-year-old man.
On Friday, around 12: 45 p.m., someone fired several bullets into Michael LAIDLEY inside unit 48 at 301 Washburn Way in Malvern, northwest of Sheppard and Neilson Rds.
Police found LAIDLEY dying just inside the front door. He was rushed to hospital but could not be revived.
The young man, who played basketball with the community group HOODLINC, lived in the house with his mother Lenore BARKER and two brothers. No one else was at home at the time of the slaying.
"He was shot inside the house and they (suspects) were brazen enough to not mask themselves, shoot him at one o'clock in the afternoon, then run down the driveway amongst all those people," Homicide Det. Sgt. Steve RYAN said.
An autopsy was being performed yesterday.
Despite the fact it was daytime, despite the fact there were lots of people around, including those who heard the gunshots, and despite the fact police have, in some recent cases, made progress persuading witnesses: to come forward, RYAN said this is one of those discouraging examples of people clamming up.
"I find it hard to believe that all those people are out front and not one person claims to have seen anything," said RYAN.
So far, not a single potential witness has volunteered any information.
"Two guys were seen running down the driveway -- one ran behind unit 48 and the other hopped on a bicycle and fled," he said.
"That's third-hand. Not one person has come forward," he said.
Police have no evidence to suggest the homicide is linked to gang activity.
LAIDLEY was only known to police for some minor drug possession offences. Yesterday, two police cars remained parked at the residence part of a cluster of well-maintained, attached homes -- while investigators continued to search the house for evidence.
Malvern earned a notorious reputation after a wave of gang-related violence rocked the area until 2004 when Toronto police rounded up members of two warring gangs, the Malvern Crew and Galloway Boys. After that, the number of shootings dropped drastically although there have been occasional flare-ups.

Tourist deaths a double murder-suicide
Woman, friend stabbed by boyfriend, who then took own life: Autopsies
'It is my opinion they were all stabbed in the room and the one man fled'
By Tracy HUFFMAN, Crime Reporter with files from John DUNCANSON
Nadja WYRSCH had planned to celebrate her 25th birthday in Canada, travelling from Toronto to the West Coast with her boyfriend and a male friend.
But within hours of arriving Sunday on an Air Canada flight from Zurich, Switzerland, WYRSCH was bleeding to death on the floor of her downtown hotel room with stab wounds to her chest and neck.
Down the hall on the 19th floor of the Delta Chelsea Hotel, her friend, Thomas KAUFMANN, 35, had collapsed outside the elevator, also suffering stab wounds to the chest.
And not far from WYRSCH was her boyfriend, 35-year-old Andre ASCHWANDEN, on the bed with self-inflicted stab wounds to the chest.
After autopsies, WYRSCH and KAUFMANN's deaths were declared homicides and ASCHWANDEN's death a suicide.
A hotel security worker found KAUFMANN, a mechanical engineer, at about 4: 30 a.m. Monday. The walls and carpet of the hallway were soaked with blood -- a trail leading to Room 1908, where police discovered the other two bodies.
"It is my opinion they were all stabbed in the room and the one man fled. We are still continuing with the crime scene," said Det. Sgt. Steve RYAN, the lead homicide investigator on the case. "We want to be sure there's no other weapon in the room."
Investigators are not looking for suspects. Police believe a knife found in the hotel room was used in all three slayings.
A police source said the murder weapon was a Swiss Army multi-tool with a 13-cm blade.
"This is a true tragedy. It is a bizarre case," RYAN said, adding that without an eyewitness, he had relied on several experts and language interpreters to draw conclusions about what happened.
RYAN said he now knows that WYRSCH and KAUFMANN knew each other and had some kind of a relationship. The officer said he is expecting to get more information about their relationship.
The evidence suggests the slayings were related to a love triangle.
WYRSCH and ASCHWANDEN had booked the three-week cross-Canada adventure with Jonview Canada, a tour company. At about $6,500 per person, the couple planned to take in such sites as Niagara Falls and the Rockies.
KAUFMANN -- who carried a German passport but lived near Bern, Switzerland -- was on the same flight from Zurich. He shared a room with the couple that first night and had planned to join the tour group.
All three had hearing impairments but none was deaf or used sign language.
In her native Switzerland, WYRSCH worked in a cytology lab, specializing in the study of cancer cells, and was on the executive committee of LKH Switzerland, which provides support to people with hearing impairments.
Little is known about WYRSCH's boyfriend, who, like her, lived near Lucerne; the couple did not live together.

Tourist's father also committed suicide
Man killed 2 people, himself in hotel
Police say he was enraged about affair
By Tracy HUFFMAN, Crime Reporter
The father of a Swiss resident who killed his girlfriend and a male friend before taking his own life in a downtown Toronto hotel this week also died of an apparent suicide.
A reporter with Radio 24 in Switzerland said he spoke with the man's neighbour last night, and the neighbour said the father died a few months ago.
Andre ASCHWANDEN, 35, came to Canada Sunday night with his girlfriend, Nadja WYRSCH, and Thomas KAUFMANN to travel across the country on a three-week vacation.
But according to police sources, ASCHWANDEN learned of an affair between his 24-year-old girlfriend and KAUFMANN, 35, and went into a rage.
KAUFMANN, a mechanical engineer, was stabbed in Room 1908 at the Delta Chelsea on Gerrard St. W., then stumbled down the hall, bleeding and bumping into the walls before collapsing outside the elevator.
WYRSCH, a scientist who studied diseases in cells, was found dead with stab wounds to her neck and chest on the floor inside the room that the trio was sharing. Her boyfriend died of self-inflicted stab wounds to the chest.
Police have seized the murder weapon, a Swiss Army multi-tool with a 13-centimetre blade.
According to his boss of 10 years, ASCHWANDEN was a "peace-loving" man.
ASCHWANDEN worked as a carpenter in Schattdorf, Switzerland, for Bissig, a kitchen and bath company, the Swiss media reported.
"This is unbelievable," his boss, Stefan Bissig, told Radio 24 in Zurich. "He was a good worker."
A hotel security worker found KAUFMANN bleeding to death outside the elevator at about 4: 30 a.m., just hours after the threesome had arrived from Zurich. WYRSCH and ASCHWANDEN had booked the trip through a tour company and KAUFMANN had planned to join in the adventure.
All three lived in Switzerland; the extent of their relationship with one another is not known.
Although Toronto police continue to examine forensic evidence in the case, Det. Sgt. Steve RYAN of the homicide squad said he is not looking for any suspects.

Game cited in racing death
By Tara BRAUTIGAM, Canadian Press, Thurs., January 26, 2006
Toronto -- The fantasy world of video game street racing may have influenced two teenage boys accused of piloting real-life luxury cars in a high-speed contest that claimed the life of a taxi driver, police said yesterday.
A copy of Need for Speed, a game that allows players to select high-end cars and race them through crowded urban areas, was found on the front seat of one of the suspect's cars following the late-night crash.
"Here we have, in real life, two guys driving high-end cars at a high rate of speed in an urban area," said Toronto police Det. Paul LOBSINGER.
"I don't think it's a giant leap for people to say, 'Wow, how does this go together?' "
The 18-year-old Friends were racing a pair of Mercedes Benzes through one of the city's wealthiest neighbourhoods Tuesday night, reaching speeds of 140 kilometres an hour in a 50-kilometre zone, police allege.
The taxi was hit while making a left turn onto the road, killing 46-year-old driver Tahir KHAN.
The married father of two young children immigrated to Canada six years ago from Pakistan, said Jim BELL, general manager of Diamond Taxicab Association.
"He was working to… reunite his family in Canada, and lived the Canadian dream," Bell said. "Tahir's dream for him and his family has been ended."
The force of the crash left the taxi wrapped around a utility pole, plumes of steam still rolling off the wreckage as investigators sifted through the twisted metal.
Despite finding an auto-racing game at the scene of the crime, LOBSINGER stressed the game wasn't solely to blame.
"Look, in the proper perspective… if everyone imitated a video game such as that, we'd have to ban cars," he said.
The driver of the Mercedes involved in the crash suffered a few scratches. The other driver fled the scene, police said.
Alexander RYAZANOV and Wang-Piao ROSS are charged with criminal negligence causing death. ROSS also faces a charge of failing to stop after an accident causing death.
RYAZANOV and ROSS appeared in court yesterday with their bail hearings rescheduled to tomorrow and Monday, respectively.
The incident is the latest in what some say is a growing problem of street racing all across Canada.
The increase in street racing incidents led the former Liberal government to introduce legislation requiring judges to revoke the driver's licence of anyone convicted of street racing.
The bill failed to pass into law before the government fell in November.

Cabbie killed by racing Mercedes
By Isabel TEOTONIO, Staff Reporter with files from Nick PRON, Henry STANCU, Dale Anne FREED and David GROSSMAN
Cab driver Tahir KHAN had just dropped off his last fare and was headed south on Mount Pleasant Rd. It was 10: 20 p.m.
Racing north were two Mercedes driven by 18-year-olds, each pushing 140 km/h in a 50 km/h zone, police say. Next to one driver was the popular video game Need For Speed.
As the Mercedes rounded a bend, the taxi made a left turn on to Whitehall Rd. A loud crash shattered the still of Tuesday night.
One of the Mercedes, a silver 1999 model, T-boned the taxi, drilling it into a utility pole, police say.
KHAN, 46, died instantly, and the driver of the mangled Mercedes escaped with just a few scratches. The driver of the other car fled, returning to the scene after ditching his car a few blocks away, posing as a bystander, police say.
It was a tragic end to KHAN's life, which was brimming with hope as he looked forward to becoming a Canadian citizen tomorrow. It was a day he'd long looked forward to, because it meant he was one step closer to being reunited with his wife, whom he hoped to bring over from Pakistan.
The accused are university students -- believed to be studying at Ryerson and York -- and both had attended St. Andrew's College, a prestigious private school in Aurora, graduating in June 2004. One played on St. Andrew's football team, and both were average students who never got in trouble, said head football coach Courtney SHRIMPTON. One of them lives a tony neighbourhood just north of the Bridle Path. Yesterday, police would not comment on whether the cars belonged to the teens' parents.
As police yesterday questioned what influence the game may have played and KHAN's Friends grappled with his death, the two accused made a brief court appearance.
"It's a horrible irony," said Det. Paul LOBSINGER about the presence of the video game, which allows players to choose high-end cars and race them through city streets while being pursued by police cruisers.
"Some have said this is life imitating art but I don't know," said LOBSINGER, adding "a game is a game, but when you get behind the wheel it's reality."
LOBSINGER described the game as an "ultra-violent driving simulation, fighting simulation and criminal simulation."
"But are games the cause?" he asked. "Absolutely not. But, it is rather ironic."
Police say alcohol was not a factor, and that it's not clear if the video game was played before the two went out driving.
"I have no words to explain why this happened," said cabbie Muhammad NASEEM, who was a friend of KHAN's. "He was a very nice man, very quiet, very polite, all the good words you can think of can be used to describe him."
Earlier this week, recalled NASEEM, KHAN had told him that he planned to return home to the district of Jhang, in Pakistan's Punjab region. KHAN's mother was ill and he wanted to be with her. He also looked forward to visiting his brother, sister and wife of 15 years, whom he's helped support since moving to Canada almost six years ago.
He was looking forward to returning home as a Canadian citizen, something he would have become during a citizenship ceremony at the Scarborough Town Centre.
"He was so excited," said KHAN's friend Munir AHMAD, while visiting the coroner's office to identify the body. "He was planning to bring his family here."
Last night, a large group of Friends gathered at the east-end apartment KHAN shared with Shahid HASAN to call his family in Pakistan and break the devastating news.
"He had lots of Friends," said HASAN, who has lived with KHAN for the last five years in Scarborough. "He was a very kind man who was helpful to everyone."
Jim BELL, manager of Diamond Taxi, said KHAN had been with the company for three years and called his death a tragedy for everyone involved.
"Those kids must be feeling absolutely terrible and the parents of these kids who were racing must be feeling devastated."
Charged with criminal negligence causing death are Alexander RYAZANOV and Wang-Piao Dumani ROSS. ROSS is also charged with failing to stop after an accident causing death.
Outside the courtroom where the two teens made a brief appearance at bail court in College Park yesterday, the aunt of one described them as "really good boys."
"It's tragic, it's horrible what happened. Now I am going to be worried about him staying in jail with criminals."
Because lawyers for the pair weren't available, the two must return for separate bail hearings -- ROSS tomorrow and RYAZANOV on Monday. Neither has a criminal record.
The two long-time Friends chatted quietly to each other as they sat in the prisoner's box.
The Crown says it will oppose their release on two grounds: public outrage over the death and the likelihood of reoffending.
