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.

BASKETT o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2007-08-24 published
Pilot was one of the first to fly bombing missions against Germany
Already in the Royal Air Force when the war started, he finished two tours of duty in 15 months before being sent to Canada to train air crews. Years later, he sold real estate in Toronto
By F.F. LANGAN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S8
When the Second World War broke out in 1939, Toby BASKETT was already one of the Royal Air Force's most seasoned operational pilots. Flying dangerously slow and obsolete aircraft, he was among the first to bomb Germany.
He was also among the first to be decorated. In September, 1940, he won a Distinguished Flying Cross for piloting a Handley Page Hampden bomber on a daring raid against a German industrial target. One of his fellow officers, Air Commodore John MITCHELL, described it as "an extraordinary raid on the Dortmund-Ems Canal, at a very low level, destroying lock gates on this all-important artery for German industry."
Flight Lieutenant BASKETT was involved in at least four raids on the canal that year. Later in the war, the canal and its dam were successfully attacked by more advanced Lancaster bombers using a special bouncing bomb that was portrayed in the film The Dam Busters.
The early raids were flown by much smaller bombers just after the fall of France, a time when Britain stood alone in Europe against Germany. Mr. BASKETT flew mostly twin-engine Hampdens, which, along with the Whitley and Wellington bombers, was all that the overstretched Royal Air Force could muster against German targets. With the Battle of Britain raging, fighters were needed for defence, so the missions went without benefit of escorts.
Their opponent, the Luftwaffe, was the world's most modern air force and flew at full strength, with the result that about half of the 1,400 Hampdens built were lost to flak and German fighters. It was also a tricky aircraft to fly and many went down in accidents.
"The Hampden was a death trap," Mr. MITCHELL said from his home in Lymington, England. "There was a narrow fuselage and the crew sat one behind the other. It was almost impossible for one pilot to take over from another."
The Hampden also laid mines in ports and canals in Europe. In his logbook, Mr. BASKETT records "gardening," a code word for laying mines. He laid ordnance (the "vegetable") in Dutch and French ports and in the Kiel Canal, a strategic waterway that links the Baltic with the North Sea.
Mine laying was hazardous work because the planes had to fly slow and low - 150 metres or less - making them easy targets. He was also involved in trying to thwart the German invasion of Norway in April, 1940. "Ordered to attack enemy battleship off coast of Norway," he wrote in his logbook. "Unable to locate target."
Mr. BASKETT's other targets included German air bases and at least one town. In 1974, he read a book about bombing missions during the early part of the war and it occurred to him that he might have been the first. He contacted the Royal Air Force Historical Branch and sent details of one particular raid.
"On May 11th, 1940, I took off from Royal Air Force Hemswell in Hampden L.4109 of No. 61 Squadron, 5 Group, to bomb the Cross Roads in Munchen-Gladbach," Mr. BASKETT wrote, adding how the flight took four hours and 45 minutes. "I wonder if your records confirm that I had the doubtful privilege of being the first Royal Air Force type to drop a bomb on German soil in the war?"
The reply, when it came, said the first attack was on the German island of Sylt on March 19, 1940. Nominal in nature, it was in retaliation for German bombs that fell on the Orkney Islands in Scotland. The first raid "against industrial targets" took place May 10, 1940, the night the Germans invaded France and just a few short hours before Mr. BASKETT lifted off for his target, a manufacturing centre in Westphalia now known as Moenchengladbach.
Code words are sprinkled through his logs. Another entry mentioned "testing George" - Steve Harris, chief historian for the Department of National Defence in Ottawa, explained this meant Mr. BASKETT was experimenting with an automatic pilot. Mr. BASKETT was later stationed at Goderich, Ontario, the site of some top-secret Royal Air Force testing.
"Goderich was where a lot of research was going on with secret technology, on things such as advanced navigation," said Ted Barris, author of Behind the Glory: Canada's Role in the Allied Air War.
In 1942, all Hampdens were withdrawn from bombing duty and transferred to Coastal Command, where they were assigned to patrol shorelines and search for submarines. Many of the bombers were sent to Canada for use in training and were flown by four Royal Canadian Air Force squadrons - two examples still survive, the most complete of which is at the Canadian Museum of Flight in Langley, British Columbia As well, about 150 Hampdens were built at plants in Quebec and Ontario.
Much of Toby BASKETT's life reads like a trip through the last days of the British Empire. Born in England, he soon went to India, where his father was working in the police force. He was sent home to boarding school at Bedford School, near Bambridge. His father died while he was at school and the family moved to Australia.
After working at many jobs, including sheep farming and gold mining in New Guinea, Mr. BASKETT returned to England to learn how to fly. In 1936, he took a short-service commission in the Royal Air Force, expecting to remain for just three years. When Germany invaded Poland in 1939, he stayed on.
His fighting war was over by the end of 1940, however. That December, he sailed to Halifax on a troop ship. He served as a staff pilot at a Royal Air Force training base at Port Albert, on the shore of Lake Huron near Goderich, Ontario The unit had been transferred there from Kent, England, and later became part of the Commonwealth Air Training Plan.
"The location of the base must have been a political decision," said Mr. MITCHELL, who was also based there. "The weather was terrible with snowstorms coming in from the lake."
Other assignments in Canada included a posting to Nova Scotia, where he trained pilots to fly the Hudson bomber in anti-submarine patrols, and to Boucherville, Quebec, where he gave instruction on the Catalina flying boat. "They needed pilots with fighting experience to pass on their knowledge to the new pilots," Mr. Barris said.
It was in Canada that Mr. BASKETT met his wife, Vivian TEMPLE. She was a Red Cross volunteer during the war and they met at a dance. Their daughter, Lynne BODDY, said that during their courtship, her father would fly over her mother's Muskoka cottage and drop messages in bottles. At their wedding, Royal Air Force officers acted as ushers and Mr. MITCHELL stood up as best man.
At the end of 1944, the couple left Canada for the Bahamas. Mr. BASKETT was posted to Nassau, where he served as commanding officer of an Royal Air Force Transport Command base that was used to train pilots on Dakotas, the military version of the Douglas DC-3. At the time, the governor of the Bahamas was the Duke of Windsor, who had given up the British throne in 1936 to marry Wallis Simpson. "Mother was pregnant and lost the baby. She had a note from the Duchess expressing her condolences," said Lynne BODDY.
In August of 1945, Mr. BASKETT returned to Canada to work at Transport Command at Dorval airport, outside Montreal. He returned to England on the Queen Mary in October.
When the war ended, he left the Royal Air Force and worked in Jamaica for a couple of years as manager of British South American Airways, a short-lived airline that operated civilian versions of wartime bombers. In 1947, he rejoined the Royal Air Force and served in a number of global hot spots, including Kenya and Egypt.
In 1957, he left the Royal Air Force again and moved to Toronto, where he went to work selling real estate for Martin and Meredith. He took a while adjusting to a calm, middle-class life in Canada, but loved visiting Georgian Bay on Lake Huron. He also did wood carving and sketching, and kept a cartoon diary.
Toby BASKETT was born Cyril Alexander BASKETT at Bedford, England, on September 19, 1911. He died of pneumonia in Toronto on June 24, 2007. He was 95. He is survived by wife Vivian and daughter Lynne. He also leaves brother Geoffrey.

By Brenda BASS, Page L8
Dorothy MERKLEY was the fourth of six children born to Les and Lillie STOREY. Coming of age on a farm during the 1930s, a child of entrepreneurial parents who were often away quarrying stone and building roads, was no doubt the impetus for Dorothy's independence and capabilities in the home.
As a spirited woman of 18, Dorothy attended Normal School in Peterborough, Ontario She taught at several one-room schoolhouses, where her professionalism, energy and love of children affected some so much they remained in touch with "Miss Storey" for more than 60 years.
While working in Iroquois, Ontario, where she lived in a rooming house with her older sister Helen, also a teacher, Dorothy met her future husband. Alfred MERKLEY had been an exceptionally bright high-school student of Helen's. He pursued an engineering degree at Queen's University, and upon graduating moved to New Brunswick.
Dorothy followed him there and they married a week later. Shortly after she was diagnosed with tuberculosis. Dorothy had only had time to give her new home a thorough cleaning when she was forced to return to Ontario, first to the family home and then to a sanatorium in London.
Alfred obtained new employment in London, and for 2½ years made a daily trek on his bicycle to visit his young bride.
Dorothy survived to become a supportive mother to her only child, Paul, born in 1956. She was extremely proud of Paul and his wife, Lora, and of her nieces and nephews, their spouses, children and pets.
Dorothy excelled as a homemaker (her standards for cleanliness and ironing were exacting), became a prize-winning weaver (her standards for salvage edges also exacting), was active in her church and community and was an accomplished cook, baker and canner.
Her conservative standards were legendary. None of her family can recall seeing her in anything other than a smartly tailored dress or skirt, stockings and leather shoes - with a crisply ironed apron if she was working in the kitchen. Nor did she smoke, drink or swear. But she was as ready for fun as anyone.
Dorothy was part of a generation whose lives spanned much of the 20th century and who optimistically embraced the changes and challenges that that century wrought. She represents a morality, work ethic, generosity of spirit and way of life that is quintessentially Canadian.
Brenda BASS is Dorothy's niece.

Teen dies of motocross injuries
Ontario Provincial Police say no charges to be laid
By Tara BOWIE, Wednesday, August 29, 2007
Track conditions were not at fault in the death of a 15-year-old motocross rider near Williamsford, an Ontario Provincial Police investigation has concluded.
Grey County Ontario Provincial Police media relations officer Const. Drew WILDER said Tuesday that no charges will be laid.
Zachary ANKNER of Orangeville was practising at Motopark when he lost control of his bike, WILDER said.
He was travelling alone when the crash occurred on a portion of the track where a rider can gain enough speed to hit a jump and clear two hills.
ANKNER hit the crest of the jump and travelled 10 metres (30 feet) before losing control.
He was wearing all required protective gear, but suffered serious head trauma and was airlifted to Toronto's Hospital for Sick Children and later died of his injuries on August 18.
Motopark owner Carl BASTEDO said ANKNER was an experienced rider.
He started riding at the age of 10 and raced at the park in several competitions this season.
All races at the track are sanctioned by the Canadian Motocross Association, which requires each rider to have a racing licence to compete.
"It's an extreme sport and with that comes risk. All we can do is make sure everybody stays as safe as they can," he said.
BASTEDO has owned and operated the park since it opened 35 years ago.
ANKNER's death is the second in the park's history. The first was in 2001.
BASTEDO said more than 10,000 riders will use the park between April and October and at this point in the season six riders have been injured needing ambulance assistance.
