2 children, wife slain, husband arrested
Teen son manages to escape attack at Aurora home
'She was a great mother. She loved her kids'
By Jim WILKES, Staff Reporter with files from Gail SWAINSON and Mike FUNSTON
An Aurora man has been arrested after a high-speed police chase sparked by the slayings yesterday of his estranged wife and two young children.
Friends identified the victims as Wendy LAFLECHE, 41, her daughter Victoria, 7, and son, Jesse, 3.
LAFLECHE's son Devon BRISBORNE, 16, was not at home at the time of the attack in the two-storey frame home just north of the town's downtown core, a few blocks north of Wellington St.
John LAFLECHE, 40, was arrested an hour later by police, who pursued a green Chrysler Intrepid from Highway 9 and Jane St. up Highway 400 and into Barrie. The car swerved to avoid a spike belt placed on the roadway by police north of Duckworth St. and was eventually boxed in near the Highway 400-Highway 11 split in Barrie's north end.
He has been charged with three counts of first degree murder. His long hair was disheveled as he appeared briefly in a Newmarket court today. He was remanded in custody and will appear in court next Monday by video link.
Friends said he had moved out of the family home a month ago after years of simmering problems that included damage inside the home, but no physical violence directed against his wife of nine years or their children.
Yesterday's deaths were the second in a week in the Greater Toronto Area in which a parent is the suspect. On Thursday, a Markham man found his two children dead in the bathtub and his wife injured in their home. Sivananthi ELANGO, 30, who is in critical condition in hospital, is charged in the deaths of Renu ELANGO, aged 2, and Movlika ELANGO, aged 3 months.
Yesterday in Aurora, police sealed off Yonge St. throughout the day as forensic detectives probed for clues to the attacks.
Co-workers of the dead woman collapsed in tears when they received word of the tragedy. They retreated to a back room at First Choice Hair Cutters on Bayview Ave., weeping inconsolably.
They later asked customers to leave and closed the shop for the day.
"I understand that they were shot -- Oh, God!" moaned manager Amanda ALLEN, who was hugged by another hair stylist.
She said LAFLECHE had a maternal streak that extended even to her job.
"She was like our mother," ALLEN said. "She was always looking after us.
"If we were sick, she was telling us to go home, always taking care of us.
"She was a great mother. She loved her kids."
At LAFLECHE's workstation was a framed picture of Victoria and Jesse and a photo of Devon was propped up beside it.
"She was just a good person, all around," ALLEN said. "She was just very friendly, good to work with. She was a really close friend.
"She did everything for her kids," she said, adding that LAFLECHE's husband worked nights, leaving her to attend to all the children's needs and household chores while working five shifts a week.
"She had it hard," ALLEN said.
LAFLECHE had worked for First Choice for three years, the past 12 months at its Aurora location after two years at its Newmarket shop.
She had worked for the BiWay store in town until the retail chain collapsed in 2001, Friends said.
ALLEN said John LAFLECHE first moved out of the home a few years ago.
"He came back and things seemed to be better and then, that was it," she said.
Recently, the couple attended marriage-counselling sessions, ALLEN said.
"They seemed to be getting along quite well since he moved out," she said.
"No, no, I don't think he was ever going to move back in. That was it for them.
"She had a few Friends, but nothing you'd consider dating."
Victoria attended nearby Wells Street Public School and was learning to play the violin.
Jesse was looked after in a day-care centre while his mother worked.
"Jesse, he was just your average 3- or 4-year-old," ALLEN said. "Yeah, a little troublemaker."
ALLEN said she last saw LAFLECHE on Saturday, when they both worked.
She said she was "fine, just her normal happy self, making jokes."
LAFLECHE's caring nature came through in a letter to the editor she wrote to the Newmarket/Aurora Era-Banner in August last year, complaining about motorists driving too fast on town streets.
"I'm afraid to ride on the street for fear of my own life," she wrote. "What is the rush? I know we all lead busy lives, but is it worth taking a life?"

600 mourn Woodbridge couple
Four employees of resort are now considered suspects
By Linda DIEBEL in Toronto with files from Gail SWAINSON and Jim WILKES
The victims can't speak for themselves and so, yesterday, the most poignant moment at the funeral of Dominic and Nancy IANIERO came when their niece spoke for them.
"At this time, you should not have to defend your name because you can rest proud behind (the name of) IANIERO," said Rosana IANIERO, standing before their coffins and struggling to hold back tears.
Her meaning was clear. There was an audible sigh among more than 600 mourners, packed into St. Clare of Assisi Catholic church in Woodbridge and spilling over from pews to standing room only.
Since the couple was murdered at a deluxe resort on the Mayan Riviera two weeks ago, the case has been mired in speculation in Mexico about ties to organized crime. The top prosecutor in the state of Quintana Roo leapt to the early conclusion that the double murder was a "professional hit" by Canadian women, his investigation has seemed disorganized and leaks have flowed almost daily from his office.
But maybe Bello Melchor Rodriguez, attorney-general of Quintana Roo, has changed his mind. Although he told a state legislative committee Friday that two Thunder Bay women remain his prime suspects, other leads appear to be surfacing.
Yesterday, a Quintana Roo newspaper reported that police now consider four hotel employees as suspects because they haven't shown up for work at the Barcelo Maya Beach Resort since February 20, the day the IANIEROs were found in their room, their throats slashed.
Rodriguez had quickly ruled out robbery as a motive, saying their room was in disarray but nothing was stolen. Over the past week, however, several tourists and a travel agent have contacted the Toronto Star to cite problems with security at the Barcelo Maya and to ask why Rodriguez was so sure that Mexicans, including hotel employees, were not involved.
Reports posted on a travellers' website described a broken lock on terrace doors at the hotel, problems with safes and one room key that turned out to be a master key for the entire resort. Wrote one reader: "Has it occurred to anybody that this was a robbery gone wrong?"
Whatever the outcome of the shifting police investigation, the damage has been done to the grieving family and its name.
And there is more stress to come.
The IANIEROs had travelled to Mexico, along with 16 family members and Friends, for the planned beachside nuptials of their daughter, Lily. While York Region police officers allowed breathing space for the funeral, Insp. Les YOUNG said police will begin today to talk with members of the wedding party who, by all accounts, were not questioned before leaving Mexico by Quintana Roo state police.
YOUNG declined to say what police are looking for in wedding party interviews, saying "it's a little soon for that. But we will deal with the facts and reality, not rumours and speculation, as we do in any investigation."
He attended the funeral, while 12 York police officers made up a security detail and honour guard. He added that the family has information it wants to share with Canadian police but he didn't elaborate.
York police had been asked to join the investigation by Interpol, acting at the request of Mexican authorities. York Police Chief Armand LA BARGE said two detectives were in Ottawa yesterday, gathering information to help focus their probe.
But yesterday at St. Clare's church, it was a time to remember Nancy, 55, and her husband, Dominic, 59. Born in Italy, they met and courted in Canada and would have celebrated their 38th wedding anniversary on July 13 with their four adult children Rosina, Anthony and twins Lily and Nancy -- and their grandchildren.
At the funeral, with the couple lying in dark and gleaming caskets, Rosana IANIERO talked about "how special they were, how very loved by so many." She added that "we can all cherish the way Dominic and Nancy touched our lives."
She described her aunt and uncle as a "wonderful, kind couple" who "dedicated their lives" to their children.
The four IANIERO children sat with heads bowed. Before the service, they had followed the long, slow wheeling of the caskets down an aisle, Anthony carrying a single photograph. One friend described him as "completely destroyed" by his parents' murder.
"Everybody says we lost an angel," said Rosana about her aunt. She said of her uncle: "I will never forget how you loved us all."
In his sermon, Father John BOREAN sought to offer peace. Death always brings sorrow, he said, and then referring to the couple by their Italian names, he added, "and especially death as tragic as this one for Dominico and Annunziata."
However, he stressed that they had been baptized in their faith and would, on the Day of Resurrection, be restored to eternal life. He urged the family not to think that God had forsaken them. "Over and over again, God has told us, 'You are my creation. You are special.'"
Although "we are all crying," he urged people to "have forgiveness for the people who have committed such a crime." And he told the IANIERO family to "take care of each other and love each other."
As the funeral procession made its way to the cemetery, politicians in Vaughan (which includes Woodbridge) passed a motion yesterday, calling on Ottawa and Queen's Park to "play an active role" in the investigation in Mexico.
Quintana Roo authorities passed on a request for assistance in the investigation to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police last week, through Interpol. However, it's still unclear how involved Canadian police officers will be on the ground.
LA BARGE said it hasn't been decided if any of his detectives will go to Mexico. And the Royal Canadian Mounted Police hasn't determined whether more Mounties will be dispatched to help the single liaison officer already in Mexico.
"It's an active investigation in Canada right now but I can't say more than that," said Royal Canadian Mounted Police Sgt. Martin BLAIS.
In Quintana Roo, Gov. Felex Gonzalez Canto told reporters the case must be resolved "quickly, efficiently and with transparency." Denying there has been a cover-up to protect tourism, he added: "Our tourist image is important but, above all, we have to signal to the world that, in Quintana Roo, no crime against tourists will go unpunished."
That's the hope of Vaughan Region Councillor Joyce FRUSTAGLIO, who sees it as a "moral obligation" to push the federal and provincial governments to get involved. "We need to let the IANIERO family know we are here to support them."

Suspect was all-star dunker
By Gail SWAINSON and Madhavi Acharya-Tom YEW, Staff Reporters
His Friends called him Sprinz for his big-bounce slam dunk on the high school basketball court.
Shelton McKENZIE, a former hoops all-star, was shot dead by York Regional Police in Thornhill Thursday as he allegedly tried to mow them down with a stolen pickup while fleeing a botched home invasion.
Investigators say McKENZIE and Kevin HARRIS forced their way into the posh Thornhill home of Mike and Bev THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON early Thursday and roughed up the couple.
Their terrifying ordeal came to a quick end after their teenage son, who managed to hide from the invaders, called 911 to summon help.
Police rushed to the scene, only to confront two men as they attempted to drive off in the THOMPSONs' truck.
Officers fired at the vehicle, killing McKENZIE and bringing the bullet-riddled truck to a stop on the lawn of a home across the street, McKENZIE slumped over the seat.
HARRIS, who was slightly wounded by police gunfire before running off, was found 90 minutes later about a kilometre away.
While the victim has yet to be formally named by police, Friends and family positively identified him as McKENZIE.
Ontario's Special Investigations Unit, which probes all deaths involving police, has been called in.
HARRIS, 26, of Ajax, was charged Friday with five counts of armed robbery, 10 counts of forcible confinement and five counts of wearing a disguise.
The charges include the Thornhill incident and home invasion-style robberies over the last few months in Vaughan, Richmond Hill and Toronto.
McKENZIE had attended J. Clarke Richardson high school in Ajax in 2004 he finished second in the slam contest at the Lake Ontario Secondary School Association's all-star games.

Peel, Durham slayings probed
Beaten Brampton man dies of injuries
In Oshawa, victim collapses near condo
By Gail SWAINSON and Amanda-Marie QUINTINO, Staff Reporters
A Brampton man found beaten with a serious head injury two weeks ago has died, becoming Peel Region's third homicide of the year.
And residents of an Oshawa neighbourhood were left asking questions about the safety of their community yesterday after a 31-year-old man was found dead Sunday, Durham Region's fourth homicide of Alan MOHABIR, who was found beaten June 15 in the area of Denlow Dr. and Verity Ct. in Brampton, remained on life support until he died at Saint Michael's Hospital on Thursday, Peel Region police said yesterday.
Homicide investigators are attempting to piece together the 20-year-old victim's last hours, but a paucity of information has left police appealing to the public for help.
"It seems like there was some sort of altercation that took place, but we are still trying to find out what exactly happened," said Const. Jennifer BRYER.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Peel homicide bureau, 905-453-3311, ext. 3205, or Peel Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
In Oshawa, the yellow police tape that surrounded the Centre St. S. crime scene where the region's latest homicide victim collapsed Sunday has left local residents worrying that the area has gone downhill.
"Eight, nine years ago, I was able to walk along the path alone late at night, but not anymore," said long-time resident Mike BROWN.
Durham police say emergency crews were called to a condominium building about 9 p.m. Sunday to investigate reports that a man had collapsed.
Sgt. Paul McCURBIN said the fatally injured man was found on a grassy boulevard at the corner of Mill and Centre Sts.
Homicide investigators say evidence found at the scene indicates he was killed on a paved pathway on the west side of Oshawa Creek running north from Mill St.
The spot is just behind the low-rise condo at the corner of Centre and Mill Sts. and within Storie Park.
"He was found with vital signs absent after receiving some type of sharp force trauma to his body," McCurbin said.
The man was rushed to Lakeridge Health Centre in Oshawa, where he was pronounced dead. Police are withholding his name until next of kin can be notified. An autopsy is scheduled for today.
The area has a mix of new and older homes and low-rise buildings. It is near the Motion Nightclub, where a 22-year-old woman was shot while dancing last February.
The woman didn't realize she had been shot until the next day, when an X-ray in hospital revealed a bullet lodged in her chest.
