Police find fourth body on site of triple homicide
By Daniel LEBLANC, Page A10
Ottawa -- Ottawa police were investigating a triple homicide in a single-family home yesterday morning when they stumbled upon a fourth body in the same house four hours later, adding a mysterious twist to a gruesome crime scene.
Police last night believed that the case was a murder-suicide involving a family of four people, according to CTV News. Ottawa police refused to confirm the identity of the victims, who were said to be 45-year-old Sant Bri Singh BRAR, his wife and two daughters.
Police said they got involved after receiving a call at around 2 a.m. from a person who expressed concern about a relative living in the house on Grandpark Circle, in the southern part of Ottawa.
Officers went to the scene, rang the bell, and left after seeing no sign of life in the house. They returned at 7: 56 in the morning, then smashed the window on the front door to enter the residence at 9: 15.
Police quickly found three bodies - two females and one male, all adult. They went on to search the house to ensure that no one else was dead or injured, or in hiding. The major crimes unit then took over the investigation, as the police force issued a news release stating that they were attending a residence "where the bodies of three people were found."
At 1: 15 p.m., however, police found the fourth body.
Constable Alain BOUCHER said he could not explain why the fourth body was not discovered in the first go-round.
"A quick search of the house was done initially to make sure there was nobody injured and nobody was found," he said. "At closer inspection, she was located."
Neighbour Chantal RUEST said the BRAR family "kept to themselves." That statement was echoed by Artemio DELA CRUZ.
"We never talked to them," he said.

Engineer was among the first textile makers to go green and recycle
Founder of Spintex was on his way to becoming a naval engineer when he took the advice of a stranger on a train and took up the manufacture of fabrics. Today, he is regarded as a genius
By Noreen SHANAHAN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S7
Toronto -- Panayotis PANTZIRIS was a "green" textiles manufacturer long before most of his contemporaries had even thought of the concept. The founder of Spintex Yarns in Toronto, he was the first in the industry to salvage scraps from the floors of cutting rooms and recycle them into quality yarn. Considered something of a genius, he was recognized as one of the world's experts in yarn spinning and fabric development.
"What we're hearing today, from people like Al Gore, my father recognized in 1990," said his son, Spiros, Chief Executive Officer of Spintex. "He always believed that, even though people were buying the yarn from us for many reasons, he knew that one day they would buy it because of its environmental value."
It all started in 1950 because of a chance meeting with a stranger. Just like the Dustin Hoffman character in the movie The Graduate who was told that "the future is in plastics," he was told his future was in fabrics.
Panayotis (Takis) PANTZIRIS was born in Alexandria, Egypt, a few years after the country gained its independence from Britain. His father, Spiros, worked as a headwaiter at the British Officers Club and often took home extra rations for his wife and two children in the heart of the Greek expatriate community. By all accounts, young Takis was more interested in hefty portions of food, or in playing sports, than he was in anything having to do with fabrics. A child with a large capacity for curiosity, he also attached himself to all kinds of hobbies or buried himself behind a book.
He graduated from a Greek high school in Alexandria at a time when the Second World War was raging not far away. He remembered watching the streets fill up with soldiers from Britain, New Zealand, Australia and India who were assembling to defend the city. At this time, the Germans stood poised at the Egyptian border with Libya, with Alexandria, Cairo and the Suez Canal as their next targets. As it turned out, Erwin Rommel never set foot in Alexandria; the Germans were turned back at the Second Battle of El Alamein in late 1942.
It was a challenging time to be a teenager, but Mr. PANTZIRIS graduated with high grades and fluency in Arabic, Greek, French, English, Italian and Spanish. His father told him to get an education abroad. At 21, he left Alexandria for France to study naval engineering in Marseilles. It was on a train crossing France that he met a fellow passenger who urged him to go into textiles. Until that moment, it is likely the thought had never crossed his mind. But, perhaps because Egypt was a giant in the cotton industry, he fully understood the wisdom of the man's advice. Instead of leaving the train in Marseilles, he continued north to Mulhouse, close to the Swiss and German borders, and entered an apprenticeship in a machine shop that held contracts with textile factories. For a year, he learned mechanical skills on the shop floor, then decided it would be a good idea to attend the École nationale supérieure des industries textiles de Mulhouse and get an education as a textile mechanical engineer.
After graduating, he returned to Egypt and, 18 months later, became general manager of a large textile mill that employed more than 3,000 workers. Later, he set up a second mill for the same owner. In the end, he built and operated four plants in Egypt: two yarn-spinning ones, a fabric and yarn dye house and a knitting one.
By the mid-1950s, Egypt was in crisis. In 1952, a group of army officers that included Gamal Abdel Nasser had seized power and begun nationalizing industries. In 1956, Nasser became president and took over the Suez Canal. Britain, France and Israel allied themselves to regain control and attacked Egypt, but Soviet and U.S. pressure forced the withdrawal of forces - all of which caused Mr. PANTZIRIS to think seriously about going abroad again.
Not long after, he met an attractive young woman named Aglaia and fell in love. They married in 1957. Together, they believed opportunities would be greater elsewhere. Mr. PANTZIRIS spent a few years working on contracts in Sudan, Germany and Greece. In 1963, he was hired to build and operate a yarn-spinning plant in Saint-Placide, Quebec By then, he had children, so he took his family with him. They liked what they saw and, a few years later, moved to Toronto, where he took over the running of Canadian Worsted, the largest long-staple yarn-spinning plant in the country. Along the way, he attended industry fairs in Milan, Paris and Hanover to pick up the latest techniques and developments in the business.
All things considered, Mr. PANTZIRIS was probably the smartest textile producer in North America, said clothing manufacturer Len ZWEIG, who likes to tell a story about once sharing an airplane ride with him. "One day I was in Montreal, rushing to get my plane. The stewardess took me to my seat and he was in it. He told me, 'I've got some new type of yarn and I'm opening up my own factory.' So I kicked the guy out of the next seat because I knew that, with this guy, I could make money." They became close Friends, said Mr. ZWEIG, who produced London Fog sweaters in Toronto.
In 1972, Mr. PANTZIRIS left Canadian Worsted and built Spintex Yarns. At last, he had his own plant and could fully develop his ideas. At the forefront was a new technique to recycle yarn. At first, many people in the industry laughed at the idea of making new clothing and textiles from old, said Spiros PANTZIRIS. "It has turned 180 degrees from a negative to a positive selling point," he told the National Post. "He said there was a great business in these scraps of cotton left on cutting-room floors. We talked about the impact on not just the process of spinning but on the environment, as well."
As for his recycled yarn, Mr. ZWEIG said it's not the best yarn in the world but it sure saves a lot of waste. "It goes into a machine in rags and gets ripped apart. It gets put into another machine and, lo and behold, it comes out in a big bale that looks like cotton batting, almost. They put the bale into another machine and it comes out spun as yarn, wind it right on the cones and it's USAble for knitting machines or looms, ready to be shipped out to customers."
Among the customers are Wal-Mart, Nike, Patagonia, Columbia, the Gap and Eddy Bauer.
"I'm dealing with companies now that I never would have dreamed of dealing with," Spiros PANTZIRIS told The Textile Journal in April. "They're coming to [Spintex] because they are selling to the 18-to-24 age group - a group that is, by nature, more interested in the environment."
And the recycling doesn't end there. Fibres too short to be respun are sold to felt makers to be turned into mattress pads; cotton dust created by the spinning process is collected, pressed into a puck-like shapes and given away to local farmers for use as a feed additive or as fertilizer. And there is more to come. In the United States alone, many thousands of metric tons of cotton "table waste" produced by cut-and-sew facilities currently end up in landfills that could be recycled.
For Panayotis PANTZIRIS, it was proof that the textile industry could be environmentally friendly. "He always understood the value of the environment, [and] the value of protecting the environment," said his son. "The fact that he could translate it into a business was something he cherished."
Panayotis PANTZIRIS was born in Alexandria, Egypt, on January 4, 1929. He died of leukemia in Toronto on October 10, 2007. He was 78. He is survived by his wife, Aglaia, his son Spiros and daughter Ellen BOWLIN. He also leaves his sister Stella BOUCHEROT and grandchildren Taki, Jack, Alexander, Nicholas and Aglaia.

Mary Bates BURNS, 89: Swing singer
Mary Bates Burns was a hit with the troops and once turned down a date with Frank Sinatra
By Matthew CHUNG, Staff Reporter
She was a decorated World War 2 veteran with "perfect pitch."
Mary Bates BURNS went from making bottle tops in a factory to entertaining overseas troops with a featured singing role in the wartime revue "Meet the Navy."
She later shared stages, and radio waves, with legends of the swing era and, according to family lore, once rejected a romantic overture from Frank Sinatra.
"Mary never did make a big thing about her celebrity status," said her sister, Peg HARRIS, 85, from her home in Prince Edward Island. "She certainly was a celebrity in Toronto."
BATES BURNS performed for much of her career as Mary BATES but later took her second husband's surname. She died December 19 at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, after a brief illness, at age 89.
Born June 6, 1917 in Newcastle Upon Tyne, England, she moved with her family six years later to Toronto's east end, near Pape Ave. and Gerrard St. E.
Her voice got noticed by co-workers in a factory and they encouraged her to try out for a local quartet. She got the job and performed with Jack ALLISON, Bill BOUNSALL and Helen RICHARDSON as The Crushy Swingers, after a successful audition for Orange Crush Co.
They quickly made a splash in the Canadian music scene, garnering airplay on CFRB and being featured on a radio broadcast put on by The Toronto Star Fresh Air Fund.
The quartet was spotted that summer by Rudy Vallee, the famous 1930s American crooner known for singing through a megaphone, as they performed at the Canadian National Exhibition.
Impressed, Vallee asked the group to sing on his Thursday evening NBC radio show broadcast from New York.
The performance was such a success BATES BURNS and the others moved to the Big Apple and made more appearances on Vallee's show as The Swing Kids. They disbanded in the late 1930s, and she launched her solo career.
BATES BURNS appeared as a featured vocalist with many large swing orchestras including The Modernaires.
In front of a microphone, BATES BURNS was "Marvellous… she was just a natural," her sister said.
It was back in Toronto, at the Canadian National Exhibition around the start of World War 2, that BATES BURNS rubbed shoulders with Frank Sinatra, then in the early years of his career.
"I think the story was, he asked did she know where a guy could get a drink?" said BATES BURNS's daughter, Kate BURNS Rapley, in a phone interview from England.
"He then said was there any chance of him having some company with that drink?"
BATES BURNS, married at the time to musician Ken ADAMSON, declined. She and ADAMSON were later divorced.
BATES BURNS joined the Canadian navy in World War 2 as a member of the Women's Royal Canadian Naval Services. She was a featured act in the "Meet the Navy" musical show that entertained soldiers stationed across Canada.
It was a dangerous time and "sad too, because you lost so many Friends in those days," said another sister, Betty JESSHOPE, 82, from her home in Oakville.
In 1944, "Meet the Navy" went overseas, playing around England. During a five-month run at London's Hippodrome theatre in 1945, the show received a rave from Beverley Baxter in the London Evening Standard.
"You don't have to visit the Hippodrome out of any sense of duty," she wrote. "The Canadian Navy has sailed up the Thames and London is its prisoner."
JESSHOPE said servicemen turned out to be an appreciative audience for her sister.
"In the navy show, the first time (BATES BURNS) sang… I think they had a hard time getting (soldiers) to shut up," JESSHOPE said, "because the young men just kept clapping her on."
After the war, "Meet the Navy" was shot as a film in Britain with BATES BURNS as a featured vocalist.
England also provided her with a second husband, accomplished saxophone player Bob BURNS, whom she wed in 1948. BATES BURNS performed there in 1950 with orchestra leader Bert Ambrose at Ciro's, a popular nightclub of the time. The pair had a son, Rob, in 1948, and daughter Kate in 1952.
BATES BURNS retired from singing professionally soon after the birth of her daughter and, around the same time, was divorced from BURNS.
She returned to Canada and worked as an electrologist for a while, moved back to England for a few years in the 1970s and then came back to Canada for good.
"I think she was never really sure where she wanted to be," said Kate. "She had gone back and forth all her life."
In fact, BATES BURNS made one last trip across the Atlantic in August, paying a three-week visit to Kate and her three children.
"She was very bright, she had all her faculties," said Kate.
BATES BURNS remained close with many Friends from the swing era, including composer Robert Farnon and Bert Pearl, bandleader on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Radio's popular program The Happy Gang.
And she still loved to sing when together with family. "I don't think she ever appreciated how good (a vocalist) she was herself," JESSHOPE said.

HALE, George Morris (1922-2007)
On November 17, 2007, George Morris HALE accepted the starter's call for his divine tee time at 10: 30 a.m. George spent his final days at Kingston General Hospital, within the confines of his beloved alma mater, Queen's University, singing with his loved ones. George's passion for his Welsh heritage was unrivalled even though he came to Canada four years after his birth in Cwmtillery on December 23, 1922. He held St. David's Day celebrations the world over, awarded the Welsh Cup in family competitions (the highest honour attainable) and had a zeal for music - so much so that George's religious affiliation was determined by the quality of the choir. Queen's University offered George more than a diploma (Science '45, Masters '47): he met his true love Mary Lillian CONNER (Arts '45 - one of the famed Goodwin House Girls), forged essential life-long Friendships and instilled in his children the value of a university experience. While 'The Graduate' may have suggested it, George lived the future - an official Canadian Plastics Pioneer. His career course began in Shawinigan Falls and continued to North York, Brampton, Pointe Claire and culminated with the prestigious position as President, China Gulf Plastics Corp. in Taipei, Taiwan. His success afforded George and Mary, often accompanied by good Friends, the opportunity to travel the globe and experience its pleasures. Retiring from the plastics industry in 1976, George resettled the family in St. Catharines where he opened the Marco Polo Shop - keeping Mary and him occupied between golf and bridge games. His final years were spent in Kingston, enjoying the love and companionship of Ruth CHISAMORE, together wreaking havoc at the Kingsdale bridge tables. Predeceased by his wife Mary, granddaughter Michelle, sister Lilian and brother Cyril. Survived by his sister Kitty (Kathleen) and recognized progeny Richard (Skip), Susan (Doug ROUTLEDGE,) Jeff (Ted COOPER,) David (France) and Alison (spinster librarian); grandchildren Michael (Julie), Taben, Devin, Sarah (Dave LANOVAZ), Julie (Nathan LAX), Jordan, John Lee COOPER, Mathieu BOURBONNAIS; great-grand_son Liam LANOVAZ and his dearest companion Ruth CHISAMORE. A celebration of George's life will be held at the Country Squire Inn in Gananoque on November 24, at 7: 00 p.m. For accommodations in the Hale block, call 613-382-3511. Although we are requesting casual attire, George would have preferred 'clothing optional.' Please share your memories with us at www.jamesreidfuneralhome.com. In recognition of his life-long passion for music, in lieu of flowers, please offer a donation to a musical organization of your choice.
