LAFLECHE o@ca.on.middlesex_county.london.london_free_press 2006-03-06 published
Mother, 2 children shot dead, father arrested following chase
By Brodie FENLON and Rob LAMBERTI, Special To The Free Press, Mon., March 6, 2006
Aurora -- Two young siblings and their mother were found shot to death in their home yesterday and her recently estranged husband was arrested following a dramatic high-speed pursuit.
York homicide detectives haven't revealed the identities because kin haven't been found, but Friends and co-workers identified the victims as Wendy LAFLECHE, 41, her son Jesse, 3, and daughter Victoria, 7.
Wendy LAFLECHE's son from another relationship, Devon BRISBOURNE, 16, a student at Aurora secondary school, wasn't at home at the time of the killings. Police had been concerned for his safety yesterday morning until he was found safe.
A police source said the suspect called police about the slayings about 6: 50 a.m. and he was spotted in an Chrysler Intrepid, which he recently bought from a neighbour, at Jane Street and Highway A pursuit reaching speeds of as much as 170 km/h involving almost two dozen York and Ontario Provincial Police cruisers ensued north on Highway 400, where the suspect was allegedly seen waving a gun out the window.
Police used spike belts to flatten its tires before the car was boxed in north of Duckworth Street. It appeared the car was peppered with shotgun pellets.
The suspect wasn't injured and was arrested without incident. He was taken to York's 1 District on Prospect Street to speak with homicide detectives.
Charges were not filed against John LAFLECHE, 40, a former long-haul trucker, as of yesterday afternoon. He is known to police in connection with robbery convictions and was last arrested in 1992 for an armed heist of a Vaughan gas station while on parole.
Const. Laurie PERKS said the suspect is the father of the two young children and Wendy LAFLECHE's husband.
The forensic examination of the scene was stalled as detectives spent most of the day preparing a warrant to enter the two-storey white clapboard home with green trim.
Official information was scarce yesterday.
"As you can appreciate, it is two children and their mother&hellip It is just tragic and the officers had a difficult time with that scene," PERKS said.
It's the second incident within four days where young children were killed in York Region. On Thursday, Renu ELANGO, 2, and her three-month-old sister, Movlika, were found dead in their Markham bathtub with their mother, suffering from self-inflicted wounds. Sivananthi ELANGO, 30, is charged with two counts of first-degree murder.
Wendy LAFLECHE was a hairdresser and assistant manager at First Choice Haircutters on Bayview Avenue in Aurora, where she worked for three years.
Amanda ALLEN, the salon's manager and a close friend of LAFLECHE, said the victim's husband had moved out of the house at 15407 Yonge St. about a month ago.
"She was a great person. She'd do anything for you," said a shaken ALLEN.
Grisly New Year
It's been a particularly gruesome new year for domestic violence in the Greater Toronto Area:
- March 2: The lifeless bodies of three-month-old Movlika ELANGO and her two-year-old sister, Renu, were found in a tub with their mother -- who was also critically injured with self-inflicted wounds -- at a house in Markham. The mother, Sivananthi ELANGO, 30, is charged with two counts of first-degree murder.
- February 9: The partially decapitated bodies of Shao-Sang LIANG, 38, her daughter, Vivian Yuen-Yee CHAU, 3, and her son, Ian CHAU, five months, were found in the basement of their bungalow near Victoria Park and Finch avenues. LIANG's common-law husband, Huc Minh CHAU, 40, faces three counts of first-degree murder
- February 9: A 31-year-old woman was stabbed twice at a plaza by the GO station in Ajax. Police credit bystanders with saving the woman's life. Her estranged spouse, 37, was arrested and charged with attempted murder. Police would not release his name in order to protect the victim's identity.
- January 26: Rose BOROJA, 54, of Markham, was found strangled in her daughter's Toronto home, where she was babysitting her two-year-old grand_son. Her husband, Pero BOROJA, 70, is charged with second-degree murder.

MORRISON, Hugh Whitney, B.A. (Alta,) B.A. (Hons) M.A. (Oxon)
Peacefully, in his 99th year, May 23, 2006, at the Aurora Retirement Centre, Aurora, Ontario. Hugh had an extraordinary and very full life. Born May 15, 1908 in Vegreville, Alberta, he earned his B.A. (Hons.) (language and literature) at the University of Alberta, Edmonton and was named a Rhodes Scholar in 1930. At his Oxford College, Merton, he read literature and political theory from 1930 to 1932, with post-graduate studies in 1933. After serving as a reporter at the Toronto Star and editor of the Star Weekly from 1934 to 1937, Hugh was appointed the first Director of Talks and Public Affairs at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, serving in Ottawa and Toronto from 1937 to 1943. Thereafter, he worked as Assistant to the President of a Central and South American airline out of New York until 1947. While in that position, he was recruited to assist 'Intrepid', Canada's spy master Sir William STEPHENSON, by reporting wartime activities of German agents in Central and South America. (In Hugh's library is a copy of A Man Called Intrepid by Stephenson dedicated 'To Hugh, my comrade in arms'.) From 1946 to 1948 he was a partner in a public relations firm in New York. Then he rejoined the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in its 'Overseas ShortWave Broadcasting Service' in Montreal as its first Director for Latin America. He returned to Toronto in 1952 as the first Director of Public Relations for the United Way, serving until 1972. On retirement, he developed a diploma course in Public Relations at Humber College and taught there until 1983. Always a keen scholar of English literature, particularly Shakespeare, Hugh wrote Shakespeare, his Daughters and his Tempest, published in 1963. He also wrote Oxford Today and the Canadian Rhodes Scholarships, published in 1958. Hugh was the oldest surviving Canadian Rhodes Scholar. Unfortunately, his autobiography remains unfinished. While at Oxford Hugh played hockey for the Spengler (European) Cup-winning Oxford teams in 1931 and 1932. Recently, he was invited to Oxford for a reunion of Oxford hockey teams and presented with a replica of his playing jersey. Hugh outlived three wives (Florentine St. Clair SHERMAN, Patricia LeMoine FITZGERALD, daughter of the artist, and Marita LAFLÈCHE) and one companion, Mary-Lucile Getchell FRENCH, called 'Ceeley', with whom he was reunited after an interval of 62 years they had met while he was at Oxford and she was in Paris on her 'junior year abroad' from Smith College. Hugh is survived by his loving granddaughter Elizabeth St. Clair Morrison FIELD (Adam CHRISTIAN) of Buffalo, N.Y. daughter of his only child, Hugh., Peter St. Clair who died in 1998, and his nephew Hugh John BOLTON of Edmonton. Hugh's extensive library was donated in lots over many years to the University of Alberta and his Oxford College, with assistance from his long-time friend, book dealer David MASON of Toronto. His extensive Shakespearean studies collection was gratefully accepted in 2004 by doctoral candidates in the University of Toronto's English Department. His extensive memorabilia, including transcripts of wartime and other Canadian Broadcasting Corporation shows Hugh produced, has been gratefully accepted by Library and Archives Canada (finding aid No. 2283). For more on Hugh's career, his publications and honours received, see the entry in the 2006 Whose Who in Canada. A memorial service will be held at the Morley Bedford Funeral Home, 159 Eglinton Ave. W. (2 stoplights west of Yonge St.), Toronto on Sunday, May 28, 2006 at 11: 00 a.m., reception following there. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Canadian Rhodes Scholars Foundation in his name would be appreciated.

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?"
