LOUCKS, John Edwin " Jack"
John Edwin " Jack" LOUCKS, born on the East Back Line in Artemesia Township, Ontario on July 7, 1922, a son of the late Edwin and Mildred (WHITE/WHYTE) LOUCKS, passed away peacefully at Markdale Hospital on Thursday, May 31, 2007 at the age of 84.
After leaving the Flesherton area in 1941, Jack went to Work on the Alaska Highway. He met Edna McARTHUR and the couple were married in 1946. Jack owned and operated JL Loucks Tire Service, a tire retail and repair business in Rocky Mountain House, Alberta for many years until his retirement in 1984, where he and his wife Edna lived and raised their family.
Jack was an avid outdoorsman who loved to hunt, fish and camp and who especially enjoyed touring about in his camper visiting family and Friends. He especially liked taking each of his family for a week during the summer months when they would share time together, usually on a fishing adventure. Jack also enjoyed getting away to the "acreage" where he would relax in his woodworking hobby and just enjoying the life which it provided. His family, and particularly his grandchildren, were his "pride and joy".
He was predeceased by his beloved Edna (née McARTHUR) and is lovingly remembered by his children Tom LOUCKS (Andrea) of Coronation, Jean (Bob) WALL of Calgary, Bob LOUCKS (Shar) also of Calgary, Janice (Gary) AUSTIN of Rocky Mountain House and Ronald, also of Rocky Mountain House. Jack was also predeceased by a son, Donald. He will be sadly missed by his 16 grandchildren and many great-grandchildren. Jack will also be remembered as a dear brother by George LOUCKS and his wife Dorothy of Chesley, Doris (late Archie) CUNNINGHAM of New Hamburg, Carmen LOUCKS and his wife Marie of Kitchener, Verna (late Raeburn) ALMOND of Meaford, Milford LOUCKS and his wife Geraldine of Owen Sound, Ronald LOUCKS and his wife Margaret of Markdale and Clifford LOUCKS and his wife Ineke of Flesherton. He was predeceased by brothers Norman LOUCKS of Markdale and Ross LOUCKS of New Brunswick and a sister Jean MERLA of Sudbury and will be remembered also by sisters-in-law Mary LOUCKS of Markdale and Sandra LOUCKS of New Brunswick and is also survived by many nieces and nephews.
Following cremation, a family service and celebration of Jack's life, officiated by Reverend Doctor Brian GOODINGS, was conducted at the Ferguson Funeral Home, 48 Boucher St. E. in Meaford, Ontario on Saturday, June 2 at 11: 00 a.m.
Jack's cremated remains will be interred at Rocky Mountain House, Alberta. As your expression of sympathy, donations to the Centre Grey Health Services Foundation would be appreciated.

WALLACE, Michael Sydney (March 21, 1927-June 12, 2007)
Our family is sad to announce that Mike passed away at home on Tuesday, June 12 with Josie by his side. Married to Josephine DILL 53 years ago, Mike led the family from Montreal to Toronto, out to Winnipeg and then finally back to Toronto. Together they raised a great family of four children: Alistair (Corinne SCHUSTER,) Sarah (Paul HAMBLETON,) Derek (MaryAnn LEE) and Christopher (Katie THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON.) He will always be remembered as a wonderful grandfather by Teighan, Aiden, Ava, Aman, Catherine, Annie, Lizzy and Michael. So proud of his grandfather and great-grandfather's founding role at Bishop's College School, Mike attended Bishop's College School and later achieved his C.A. designation. He worked and made many Friends over the years at MacDonald Currie, Urwick Currie, P.S. Ross, Bay Bronze Inc., Wilson Office Specialty, Harrison and Crossfield, and finally, AC Technical, where he happily worked into his seventies. Being Mike meant: countless visits to the hockey rink, trips to the Winnipeg Winter Club, Chairman of the Board at Saint_John's Ravenscourt, always wishing for a sailboat at his birthday, helping with the L.P.A.A., and getting out on the course for a round of golf. A trip last summer to Tadoussac completed an important circle for Mike, returning to a place so special to him. Mike's love for life, his never ending support, love and encouragement, and his great sense of humour will be with us always. Husband, father, grandfather&hellip he will be so missed by all of us. The family will receive Friends at the Humphrey Funeral Home - A.W. Miles Chapel, 1403 Bayview Avenue (south of Eglinton Avenue East), from 7-9 p.m. Thursday, June 14 and 1-3 and 7-9 p.m. Friday, June 15.

Ron WYATT: Pilot, Farmer and Insurance Agent
He didn't just become a pilot - he covered them
By F.F. LANGAN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S9
Ron WYATT turned two of his hobbies into a lucrative business. A private pilot and weekend farmer, he joined the Flying Farmers, a club made up of full- and part-time farmers who flew their small planes from private farm landing strips and other small airfields across the country. Soon, he wasn't just flying with them - he was covering them through his small insurance agency, which expanded into aviation almost exclusively.
The Flying Farmers first got off the ground in the United States in 1945, but the idea soon spread north - the Saskatchewan chapter, for example, was started in 1955 when an American member on his way home from a fishing trip stopped to refuel in Estevan, Saskatchewan., and started chatting with the locals.
The Ontario club was started in 1963 by Peter IRWIN, an Air Canada pilot with a farm just north of Toronto's airport. That year, there were 50 members. Mr. WYATT, who flew a two-seater Piper Tri-Pacer, soon joined.
He set to work remedying one of the problems with private aviation at the time: finding insurance.
"Back then, insurance wasn't mandatory as is today, but it was more expensive if it was outside a group plan," said Barbara CARROLL, who is the current president of Ontario Flying Farmers and worked for Mr. WYATT's company for many years.
"It also had to be a pretty specific policy," she said. "It covered people with private planes who kept their aircraft on their own property, in most cases, and flew from grass strips often to larger airstrips. For example, my husband John flew his Aeronca Champ from our grass strip to LaGuardia in New York."
The group policy Mr. WYATT came up with saved the pilots at least 25 per cent. It kept the Flying Farmers covered and happy, and also propelled his business into other aviation ventures. For instance, he had a chance encounter with someone from the Soaring Society of America and was soon insuring gliders and their pilots.
Insuring pilots and planes was a complicated business, Ms. CARROLL explained. Each state had its own insurance regulations, so Wyatt International Insurance Inc. had to register in each of the states where it did business. For a while, Mr. WYATT had an office in Britain, but he found it was a stretch.
He upgraded his own plane and bought a Cessna Cardinal, a more powerful version of the popular Cessna 172, a four-seater, single-engine aircraft. During trips to visit clients in the United States, he took rides in gliders, although he never owned one.
"Have you ever been up in a glider? It's the most wonderful feeling," said Mary WYATT, who flew with her husband and accompanied him on many of his trips. Mr. WYATT sold insurance to almost 3,000 North American glider owners before selling that part of his business to a U.S. company in 1990.
The Flying Farmers business eventually dropped off. At its peak in the early 1970s, there were more than 700 members of the Ontario chapter, representing about 350 planes. Today there are just 128 members, with as few as 20 planes.
"Young people just aren't into flying the way their parents were," Ms. CARROLL said.
Ronald WYATT was born in Toronto in 1926. His parents, both from England, were in bad financial shape and left their son with a babysitter. When she died, he went to her sister, Margaret WALLACE, and her husband Joe, who lived on a farm near Drayton, 100 kilometres west of the city.
Mr. WALLACE died when Ron was 12, and he and the woman he called his aunt moved into town. After high school, Ron went to teacher's college and started working at a small school near Drayton.
He continued teaching in other public schools and became principal at Quaker Road Public School, near Welland, Ontario But he wanted to make more money, so he took a job as office manager for the Canadian Indemnity Insurance Co., in downtown Toronto.
Mr. WYATT rose to manager of personnel before buying a small general-insurance agency of his own in the late 1950s. He ran the firm from an office in Willowdale. In 1972, he bought a farm in Zephyr, north of the city, and commuted to work. He later moved his office to the farmhouse.
On his farm, he raised Appaloosa horses and rode with the Zephyr Squires Club. He played the guitar, sang and performed with musical groups, and was in the choir at the local United Church.
Ronald Arthur WYATT was born in Toronto on August 12, 1926. He died of a heart attack on May 30, 2007. He was 80. He is survived by his wife, Mary, his daughter Mary Ellen and son Bob.

Teen tried to leave strict family
Father now faces murder charge
By Omar EL AKKAD and Kenyon WALLACE, Page A1
Aqsa PARVEZ was largely estranged from her family and sleeping away from home in recent days. The 16-year-old's Friends said she returned to her home in Mississauga on Monday only to collect her belongings.
Shortly afterward, she was taken to hospital, where she died early yesterday morning - leaving Friends grief-stricken and igniting a public debate on religious extremism in Canada.
Her father, 57-year-old taxi driver Muhammad PARVEZ, is charged with murder. Her brother, 26-year-old Waqas PARVEZ, is charged with obstructing police.
Ms. PARVEZ's Friends described the Grade 11 student at Applewood Heights Secondary School as someone who was drawn to Western culture even as her family adhered to a devout form of Islam. Friends paint a picture of a hardworking and cheerful girl who loved dancing, fashion and photography - interests that often clashed with her strict home environment.
"Aqsa was always trying to get us to go shopping with her," schoolmate Dominiquia HOLMES- THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON said. "We were supposed to go to the mall together today."
Last week, Ms. PARVEZ temporarily moved in with a friend from school.
"She said she wasn't getting along well with her family and that things weren't right," said Trudy LOOBY, the mother of one of Ms. PARVEZ's Friends, Alisha. " When she was here, she was very happy."
Ms. LOOBY said she told Ms. PARVEZ to inform her parents about where she was staying. "She notified me that the school was aware of where she was staying and that that was okay," the mother said.
During her stay, Ms. LOOBY said, Ms. PARVEZ didn't wear the hijab, a head scarf that Friends said was a hot topic within her family.
Krista GARBUTT remembers walking down the street with Ms. PARVEZ earlier this year, when the two of them spotted Ms. PARVEZ's brother walking toward them. Panicking, the teenager quickly fumbled for her head scarf, trying to put it on. "There were times when we'd be walking down the street and she'd see her brother and she wouldn't be wearing her hijab and she'd have to put it on," Ms. GARBUTT said. "She said, 'He'll kill me, he'll kill me.' I said, 'He's not going to kill you,' but she said, 'Yeah, he will.' And nobody believed it."
On Monday morning, Peel Regional Police responded to a 911 call from a man who said he had just killed his daughter. When officers arrived at a single-family detached home on Longhorn Trail, they found Ms. PARVEZ suffering from life-threatening injuries. She was taken immediately to Credit Valley Hospital and later transferred in critical condition to the Hospital for Sick Children, where she died.
Peel police said the Crown is waiting to decide whether Mr. PARVEZ should be charged with first- or second-degree murder, pending a police investigation. Although police would not elaborate on the ongoing homicide investigation, the difference between laying a first- or second-degree murder charge often rests on proving that the killing was premeditated.
Ms. GARBUTT said the teenager went home on Monday to collect her belongings, at which point her father "basically went ballistic."
For weeks before, Ms. PARVEZ had been living something of a double life, Friends said.
"She wanted peace with her family," Alisha LOOBY said. "She wanted to make them happy but she wanted to be herself at the same time, and there's nothing wrong with that."
A makeshift memorial is already in place at Applewood Heights, full of mementoes and messages left by grieving students.
"Aqsa was honestly the brightest girl around. She had the biggest smile and was the happiest person in school. She loved to dance and take pictures," one student wrote.
Across Canada, the killing has taken on larger proportions. On call-in shows and websites, many have used the incident as part of a wider indictment of fundamentalist Islam. One Canadian conservative blogger suggested Canadians boycott taxicabs driven by Muslims.
In a statement yesterday, the Canadian Council on American-Islamic Relations called on Canadians of all faiths to address issues of domestic abuse, and called for "the strongest possible prosecution" of those responsible for Ms. PARVEZ's killing.
Trudy LOOBY, who let Ms. PARVEZ stay at her home last week, said she now wishes the teen had not left.
"I was feeling that whatever it was she was dealing with at home was a bit too personal to involve me in," Ms. LOOBY said. "I wish she would have stayed longer, that's all. It's a sad waste of life."

With broken ankles, crash survivor crawls to safety
By Kenyon WALLACE with a report from James BRADSHAW, Page A18
One man is dead and another is in hospital after a single-vehicle crash early yesterday morning in which police say the survivor, who suffered two broken ankles, pulled himself from the wreckage and crawled half a kilometre through the snow to a nearby gun club.
Brandon MANTHAU, 22, was a passenger in Nathan MAGEE's black 2003 Chevrolet Avalanche when the eastbound sport utility vehicle plowed into a dense wood beside Herald Road, just past Kennedy Road near Newmarket, around 1 a.m.
York Regional Police said they were notified of the crash when the vehicle's OnStar navigational system, triggered by the release of the airbags, could not make contact with the two Friends.
But when police arrived at what they believed to be the crash site, they could not find the wreck anywhere. "The location police were given by OnStar was not correct," said Constable Marina ORLOVSKY, media-relations officer for the York police.
Police spent nearly 1½ hours combing an area about 10 kilometres west of the actual crash site. Meanwhile, Mr. MANTHAU reached the gun club about two hours after the accident and set off the building's security alarm. A man at the gun club called police, and Mr. MANTHAU was able to lead them to the crash site, Constable ORLOVSKY said.
Mr. MAGEE, 24, a heavy-machinery operator at a King City pipeline and utility contractor, was pronounced dead at the scene. Mr. MANTHAU was taken to Saint Michael's Hospital in Toronto, where he remained last night.
"He's a very strong young man who comes from hearty stock," said Judy MANTHAU, Mr. MANTHAU's aunt. "When you're his age, you'll do what you have to do if the adrenalin takes over. It's really a case of mind over matter."
Police would not say how fast the sport utility vehicle was moving or if alcohol was involved.
An OnStar representative in Detroit was unable to comment about what might have caused Mr. MAGEE's system to provide an incorrect location.
The OnStar system uses four separate satellites and a Global Position System receiver to pinpoint a car's location. The Global Position System system uses the amount of time taken for a radio signal to travel from a satellite to a specific location in order to calculate distances.
The technology should be able to determine location to a margin of error of only a few metres. However, certain conditions could have affected the system's accuracy.
"It is possible that anything from a heavily wooded area to inclement weather could impact satellite signals," said Patty Faith, public-relations manager for General Motors Canada.
Downed trees almost two feet in diameter, flattened bushes and deep tire tracks in the snow marked the spot yesterday afternoon where Mr. MAGEE's sport utility vehicle left Herald Road. Friends and co-workers of the Willow Beach native comforted one another at the accident site and recalled a happy and hardworking young man.
A bouquet of flowers with a red ribbon inscribed with the words "Pals Forever" was nailed to a nearby tree.
"You'd never find a better kid in your whole life," said a close family friend who wished to remain anonymous. "I've known him since he was just a boy and he was the nicest person. I'm just devastated."
But some locals weren't surprised to hear about the accident. Rusty SMITH works at 404 Auto Recycling, which sits at the top of the hillside at the corner of Herald and Kennedy Roads. He recalled rolling his van near the intersection two summers ago after a near-miss with another vehicle driving in his lane.
"That road is just treacherous," he said. "It's really narrow and there aren't any shoulders."
The speed limit along Herald Road is 50 kilometres an hour, but Mr. SMITH said "people always speed along the road." The road can get very slippery in snow or rain, he added.

Troubled relationship ends in tragedy
Domestic dispute on Christmas Day leaves two dead in Rexdale apartment
By Kenyon WALLACE and Dakshana BASCARAMURTY, Page A12
Iliada ZOIS dreamed of one day seeing her face on more than just the cover of Wal-Mart Canada's World magazine.
The 22-year-old Toronto resident, who imagined becoming an actor and model, instead spent her last few weeks working two full-time retail jobs and confiding in co-workers and Friends about a difficult five-year relationship with her boyfriend.
Ms. ZOIS and a 14-year-old boy were found dead in the woman's Rexdale high-rise apartment after a Christmas Day domestic dispute that turned violent, police said yesterday.
Detective Sergeant Gary GRINTON of the Toronto police homicide squad said the bodies of the two victims weren't discovered until Wednesday night, when a 16-year-old man suffering from knife wounds walked into the 23 Division police station just a few blocks from the high-rise, and led officers to Apartment 217 at Beacon Hill Towers on 2737 Kipling Ave., just north of Finch Avenue West.
"This was a domestic situation that went really bad," Det. Sgt. GRINTON said. "It was one of the nastier ones I've seen… in the 30 years I've been on the job."
Yesterday, police arrested 27-year-old Nana YAW, whom they identified as Ms. ZOIS's common-law partner, and charged him with two counts of second-degree murder. He was also charged with one count each of attempted murder and forcible confinement.
Det. Sgt. GRINTON said Mr. YAW called police from a phone booth near Steeles and Kipling Avenues at about 6 a.m. yesterday and turned himself in. The man underwent surgery for non-life-threatening knife wounds at a Toronto hospital, but Det. Sgt. GRINTON would not say if they were related to the Christmas Day dispute. Police said the two teens were relatives of Ms. ZOIS.
It was no secret to Ms. ZOIS's Friends, co-workers and a neighbour that the woman was in a troubled relationship.
"I knew she was having problems with her boyfriend but I had no idea it was this bad," said a woman who worked with Ms. ZOIS at Fairview Mall's La Senza Girl, and asked that her name not be used.
Darren CEDAR, a man who claims to have had a 10-year online Friendship with Ms. ZOIS, said the woman told him she was scared of her boyfriend and had recently been looking to move out of their shared apartment.
Ingrid WILSON, whose apartment is on the same floor as Ms. ZOIS's, said she frequently encountered the couple in the hallway after they moved in more than a year ago.
"They seemed okay together," she said. "No jealousy."
But recently it seemed trouble was brewing between them, she said, adding that for two weeks she had heard yelling coming from the apartment late at night and early in the morning.
"On the weekends I usually heard lots of fighting on that side. Lots of noise - loud," Ms. WILSON said.
Shiva TAGHANI, who had worked with Ms. ZOIS at La Senza Girl for more than four years, said the woman was "a very hard worker" who spent 100 hours a week at two jobs. Ms. ZOIS also worked at a west-end Wal-Mart.
Ms. ZOIS's profile on the social-networking website Facebook proudly displays a scan of herself on the cover of Wal-Mart Canada's in-house magazine, as well as many self-taken glamour shots and an application where other users can rate her "hotness."
"She always wanted to do more with her life and always wanted to be famous," said Cheyenne KIRBY, who attended Wilfrid Laurier Collegiate Institute with Ms. ZOIS. She said Ms. ZOIS, who had also studied child psychology at Centennial College, had dreamed of becoming a model or an actress.
Yesterday afternoon, Toronto police officers guarded Ms. ZOIS's apartment, which was still a crime scene. With a box of latex gloves and empty bags for evidence collection, they stationed themselves in front of the door, which was stripped of paint and had its peephole taped over.
Det. Sgt. GRINTON said Mr. YAW's forcible-confinement charge stems from the fact that the 16-year-old male who led police to the crime scene was confined in the apartment and at another undisclosed location. The man was treated for his wounds at a Toronto hospital yesterday and released.
Mr. YAW is expected to appear in court today.

BEVERIDGE, Terry J.
Terry J. BEVERIDGE, Ph.D (University of Western Ontario,) Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada, Fellow of the American Academy of Microbiology, Professor in the Department of Molecular and Cellular Biology, University of Guelph.
Dr. Terry BEVERIDGE, a distinguished Canadian scientist, died September 10 at Groves Memorial Hospital at the age of 62.
His happy spirit will forever be missed by Jan, his wife of 37 years, his son Braden and his wife Becky and granddaughter Ava, plus daughter Bree and her fiance Aaron WALPOLE. Also by his brother Ron and his wife Gail (Markham) and brother-in-law Bob and his wife Anna (Toronto).
He will be fondly remembered by his nieces and nephews Phil, Chris, Corie, Laura and Alex and their families, plus former students and colleagues in the worldwide scientific community and his many devoted Friends.
Terry was a professor of microbiology at the University of Guelph for almost 30 years, during which time he had a prodigious output of book chapters and journal articles. As well he edited major journals in his field and taught at the undergraduate and graduate levels. He was the recipient of many awards including the Canadian Council's Killam Prize and the prestigious Steacie Prize, awarded by the National Research Council to an outstanding scientist under 40 years old. In 1985, when he received this prize, he was the first microbiologist to win it. In 2002 he was honoured to receive a Canada Research Chair in the Structure of Micro-organisms.
He was a leading figure in the emerging science of Geomicrobiology. The interdisciplinary nature of this work brought together microbiology, geology, medicine, chemistry and physics with the result that his laboratory was filled with young inquisitive minds working in an exciting, growing field.
Beyond his own work Terry was also active in organizations in Canada and abroad which encouraged collaboration and the growth of the microbial science in general.
His scientific activities took him around the world for guest lectures, visiting professorships, consulting work, and scientific committee activities. But, he always returned enthusiastically to his home in Elora where, with family and Friends, he heartily enjoyed the bucolic pleasured of village life. With Jan by his side, he was a regular stroller along local roads and hiking trails, one of his many walking sticks always in hand.
Terry was a Renaissance man whose conversation was filled with ideas of every kind and an ever- present, wonderful sense of humour. His knowledge of classical and esoteric pop music, science fiction, flora and fauna, wine, art and books and a host of other topics enlivened many an evening gathering with Friends.
Above all else, Terry was a kind, empathetic man whose love of life and joy in all it's wonders, touched and inspired so many.
Friends will be received at the Graham A. Giddy Funeral Home and Chapel, 37 Church St. in Elora, on Thursday, September 13th 2007 from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. Funeral Service will be conducted by Rev. Kees VANDERMEY on Friday, September 14th 2007 at 2: 00 p.m. at the Knox Presbyterian Church, 55 Church St. in Elora, followed by cremation.

Manhunt in Huron County
Ontario Provincial Police swarm a rural Huron County township seeking Jesse IMESON, 22, right, wanted in a Windsor killing.
By Kate DUBINSKI and April KEMICK, Sun Media, Sun., July 22, Const. Charlie RAE of the Huron Ontario Provincial Police stands watch over the perimeter of a cordoned area just south of Crediton, where police continued their hunt last night for a suspect in the slaying of a Windsor man. (Susan BRADNAM, Sun Media)
Police officers and dogs combed a rural area of Huron County yesterday as they searched for an "armed and dangerous" suspect in a Windsor homicide.
Dozens of Ontario Provincial Police officers and dogs scoured a five-kilometre-wide stretch of land in Stephen Township -- from Ausable Line to Parr Line north of Mount Carmel Drive -- in search of Jesse Norman IMESON, 22.
IMESON is wanted by police in connection with the slaying of Carlos RIVERA, 26, of Lasalle.
The search for IMESON -- which earlier had police scouring Grand Bend, after investigators found the slain man's car there -- began when RIVERA's Friends reported him missing to Windsor police on Wednesday.
He was last seen at 6 a.m. that day.
Investigators tracing RIVERA's movements went to the Tap, a gay strip club in Windsor where he tended bar. RIVERA didn't show up for his Wednesday night shift, which wasn't like him, Friends said.
RIVERA was last seen in his silver two-door Honda Civic, which was being driven by IMESON, police said.
Police went to IMESON's Erie Street apartment in Windsor Thursday night and found RIVERA's "decomposing" body, said Windsor police Staff Sgt. William DONNELLY.
Police then found RIVERA's car in Grand Bend early Friday.
There, investigators obtained video of IMESON and another man at Gables, a Main Street bar.
The surveillance images were taken sometime between Wednesday and Friday, police said.
Police fear the man in the video with IMESON might be in danger, and searched the town for clues to their whereabouts.
"We've been doing door-to-door searches, going to businesses and asking them if they recognize anyone," Lambton Ontario Provincial Police Const. Todd MONAGHAN said yesterday.
"We're hoping the public knows something, or perhaps Mr. IMESON can put an end to this and come speak to us."
The man with IMESON has collar-length hair and was wearing a dark ball cap and white shirt, police said.
IMESON is six-foot-one, 200 pounds with short, almost shaved brown hair, brown eyes and numerous tattoos on his arms.
Windsor police said IMESON is known to police.
Last night, an Ontario Provincial Police helicopter joined the manhunt for IMESON in Huron County.
As night fell, marked and unmarked cruisers -- along with armed officers -- lined a perimeter in Stephen Township that framed corn fields, wooded areas and the Ausable River.
Passing motorists were warned not to pick up hitchhikers, and area homeowners were told to keep vehicles and homes locked.
"I've got my doors locked and I'm staying inside, because you just don't know," said one woman, who didn't want her name used.
Wayne GLANVILLE, whose property borders the search area, said it's rare to see such a police presence in the quiet countryside.
"It makes me a little nervous," he said of the suspect on the loose.
The Stephen Township area is full of nooks and crannies where a suspect could hide, said Huron Ontario Provincial Police Const. Jeff WALRAVEN.
"There's so many different avenues -- trees, bushes, holes," he said.
But scouring for suspects is "something the Ontario Provincial Police excels at," he added.
WALRAVEN wouldn't comment as to how long police would remain on the perimeter.
RIVERA was a "nice guy" who always had a smile for everyone, said one Tap employee who didn't want to be named.
"It's really scary. I'm hoping the police can find who did this."
An autopsy on RIVERA was slated for yesterday in London. No results have been released.
