Only one gun used in fatal Toronto shooting
By Jonathan JENKINS, Sun Media, Mon., June 11, 2007
Toronto -- Just one gun was used to pump bullets into the packed Honda carrying Jose Hierro SAEZ and several Friends, killing the teen and wounding three other men, police said yesterday, dismissing the suggestion the victims fired back.
"We have no evidence to support anyone in the Honda firing back," Toronto police homicide Det.-Sgt. Gary GRINTON said.
"If it's a gunfight, it's an awfully one-sided one."
Hierro SAEZ, 19, was hit in the head and pronounced dead at the scene Saturday afternoon.
"It's not a good time right now," said a man outside the victim's townhouse, just metres from where he died.
GRINTON said SAEZ was working as a shipper-receiver and living with his mother and sister.
Like the three other men injured with him, he was known to police, but only in "a very minor way," GRINTON said, adding police have no firm reason why their car was targeted.
"There's a lot of different possibilities that we're getting, but none that we've confirmed and none that are terribly plausible, to be honest," GRINTON said.
"There's a lot of stuff we're looking at, but nothing I could say."
McFrinn PADDY, 19, Moustaffa OMAR, 20, and Matthew DALE, 18, were all injured in the barrage, fired from inside a silver Mercedes-Benz sport utility vehicle about 3 p.m.
All three are speaking with police about the shooting.
One of the men was released from hospital Saturday, a second was expected to be released yesterday and the third was to be treated for about a week, the detective said.
"They're very lucky, especially the one chap who got it in the stomach," GRINTON said.
The shooting continued for about 50 metres, he said.

Keen student drowns in waves
By Glynnis MAPP, Sun Media, Fri., August 10, 2007
The mother of a Michigan girl who drowned off Grand Bend on Wednesday remembered her daughter yesterday as an avid tennis player and ambitious student who loved ballet and Irish dancing.
And a Grand Bend-area resident described the desperate attempts to save her that ultimately failed.
Jule Marie KOVAR, 14, drowned Wednesday night when high waves pushed her into an area off the Lake Huron resort, not patrolled by lifeguards, that police called "highly dangerous."
"She was like the sunshine… always happy and dancing. She was gorgeous," Anna KOVAR said of her daughter.
The girl, from Fort Gratiot, Michigan., had been in Grand Bend visiting family and Friends for a day of shopping and fun, including swimming.
"She had been planning this trip for some time," her mother said, noting her daughter was excited to be in Grand Bend for the first time where she visited a longtime friend from Sarnia.
Jule Marie was swimming off the south end of the Bend's public beach, about 7: 20 p.m. with a friend, also 14, in metre-high waves, Ontario Provincial Police said.
The friend's mother called them back ashore, police said.
The friend made it back, but strong waves pushed Jule Marie north of the pier where the water was "extremely treacherous," police said.
The area, not patrolled by lifeguards, is known for high winds that cause large waves and a dangerous undertow.
A Beachville male, 17, whom police said was a friend of Jule Marie, tried to save her but was overcome by the waves and had to be pulled out. The teen, whose name was not released, was treated at hospital.
The Sarnia friend's mother also went into the water to try to save Jule Marie but couldn't.
Police and volunteers searched the water and found Jule Marie's body about 40 minutes later south of the Grand Bend pier.
Brian DALE, a Grand Bend-area resident, helped initiate a search about 25 minutes after Jule Marie slipped under.
He said he rounded up off-duty lifeguards -- who had finished their shifts at 5 p.m. -- from the other end of the beach to help in the search.
"No one seemed to be doing anything or knew what was going on when we got there… so I ran to the lifeguarding house and got them to bring out equipment.
"I cleared water from her throat… by the time we found her it was obvious it was too late," DALE said of efforts to revive the girl with cardio-pulmonary resuscitation.
At the south end of the beach, the area where Jule Marie drowned, there's no publicly accessible water safety equipment. There are signs posted at entrances and on the beach warning swimmers the south end is not patrolled by lifeguards.
On Wednesday, there were red flags on the beach warning of treacherous water conditions. It isn't known if Jule Marie and her friend were aware of the flags.
John BYRNE, chief municipal administrative officer for Lambton Shores, said he'll raise the issue of beach security at council's next meeting, in early September. "It is an unsupervised beach and we ask people to use their discretion when they swim there.
"We always try to monitor the area, but it is dangerous there&hellip we will try to determine whether we can implement better safety measures."

Shots only came one way, police say
By Colin FREEZE, Page A1
Toronto -- Hope has a habit of dying in Jamestown.
Joan BAKER, a mother of three, heard about six staccato bursts echo up the road from her housing project on a beautiful Saturday afternoon. "Oh, maybe it's firecrackers," is what she recalls hoping.
Then she saw a shiny silver Mercedes sport utility vehicle speed around a bend on John Garland Boulevard, followed by what looked to be a blue Honda. Before long, she saw the Honda, stopped just around the corner, with all of its doors open and the passengers having fled, all except a young man who lay dying on the grass - the unarmed victim, police say, of a drive-by attack.
Paramedics arrived and put a tarp over the man. It was at that point that Ms. BAKER held out another hope, that maybe the victim was not one of her neighbours. "Oh jeez, that person is dead," she recalled thinking, while looking at the body. "You want to bet they're going to blame it on Jamestown?"
But then she saw a distraught mother of four from across the walkway. "She was just begging for someone to tell her, 'no it was not him,' Ms. BAKER recalled. She told her neighbour she had gotten a glimpse of the victim, and that it was a young white man, wearing a white do-rag and white sneakers.
The other woman burst out in hysterical crying. Hope that her teenaged son was alive had just evaporated. It was his body that was lying under that tarp; he had gotten to within a few metres of his home after fleeing an attack.
Toronto Police yesterday identified Jose Hierro SAEZ, 19, as Toronto's latest homicide victim. The shooting seriously injured three of his Friends - Paddy McFRINN, 18, Moustaffa OMAR, 20, Matthew DALE, 18.
Homicide detectives said the victims were too "groggy" to say much about the shooters, leaving police few leads yesterday. "We have some possibilities, but even those are perhaps a stretch," Detective Sergeant Gary GRINTON said yesterday.
The detective said that most of the shooting victims held down jobs and that he has no information to indicate they are gang members. Most lived in the neighbourhood.
The shooting has been reported as a "gun battle," but detectives said yesterday that it was one-sided. "It wasn't a battle, that's the best information we have right now," Det. GRINTON said. Police believe the shots were fired from the silver Mercedes sport utility vehicle, just east of the housing project near Kipling Avenue, before the two cars got to the housing project.
"It's tremendously frustrating when these things happen because we work hard in these neighbourhoods and we work hard in Jamestown," Toronto Police Chief Bill Blair said at a news conference to announce the infusion of $5-million from the province to combat crime in the downtown nightclub district. "It's tremendously frustrating when a few, frankly, idiots go out and engage in such wanton violence."
He held out hope that people wouldn't lose faith in police efforts to curb the violence. During 2005, more than 10 fatal shootings occurred in the Jamestown housing complex. Since last year, after Chief Blair announced that his force had "surgically removed" the leadership of the Jamestown Crew while arresting scores of alleged gangsters, homicides and shootings have been rare.
Still, the housing project has yet to blot out all the Crips gang graffiti on its walls, and its residents generally had little to say to reporters yesterday. "Yeah, that's what happened. That was my friend," said one young man, before walking off with a shrug. A few people laid wreaths at the crime scene, but wouldn't comment.
Twenty-four hours after the shooting, Joan BAKER sat outside watching her daughter do her homework, and warning another group of children playing soccer not to veer into the road where the cars had sped by the previous day. Many of her neighbours, she said, "think if you talk to the police or anybody, you're snitching."
Many people in the housing project mind their own business. Still, the BAKER family knew the shooting victim, not well, but they liked what they knew about him.
Every morning in the winter when Ms. BAKER walked her children out to the bus - she said she sends her children to schools farther away because of the "peer pressure" in local ones - they would see the young man warming up the car for his mother. He would say "Hi Mummy" and smile and sometimes tell jokes.
Ms. BAKER's daughter cried when she learned that their neighbour was dead. It was a grim reminder for the family of a homicide two years ago. In that incident, a man who had visited the BAKERs' house just before going a party up the street was shot in the leg when the other man was killed.
The family has been living in the project for seven years, and it's an uphill struggle at times. Still, "if I can survive Kingston 11," Ms. BAKER said, referring to her old neighbourhood in Jamaica, "I can survive Jamestown."
She hopes to move out of it one day, but "every time I think I can afford to leave, I just come back down to zero again."

Four widows die in crash
Friends who rarely missed a church event, they were heading home from a church supper before the collision.
By Jane SIMS and Kate DALEY, Special To Sun Media, Mon., November 26, Four women died as a result of a head-on crash involving a minivan and a car on Keil Drive near McNaughton Avenue in Chatham Saturday. (Sarah FRALEIGH, Chatham Daily News)
They were four pillars of a Chatham Anglican church, heading home from a church supper when tragedy struck.
Yesterday, the congregation at Holy Trinity Anglican Church was mourning the loss of four good Friends who rarely missed a church service or event.
The four women died Saturday night after their car was struck head-on in Chatham by a minivan that crossed the centre line on a small curve of Keil Drive near McNaughton Avenue.
Police yesterday hadn't identified the women, but others confirmed they are Jean RIPLEY, 86, Marion DAWSON and sisters Bernice PHILLIPS, 83, and Verna NEAVES, 82, all of Chatham.
Alcohol is believed to have been a factor in the crash, police said.
The van's 47-year-old male driver, also of Chatham, was taken to hospital with serious, non-life threatening injuries.
Police hadn't identified him.
The four women were trapped in the car and had to be cut from the wreckage. Three died at the scene and a fourth while being taken to hospital.
All four women were widows and devoted members of the church for decades.
"They were delightful people to be around," said church Deacon Elaine WILCOX. "We just loved them.
"It's a very profound loss because they were always present. It was their continual presence that will be missed."
WILCOX said the church "really was their community. That was their life."
The church is in the midst of helping to plan four funerals. Yesterday's service was an emotional one, WILCOX said.
"It will be difficult for us to be able to come to grips with it," she said.
The women had just left an annual roast beef dinner at the church and were believed to be on their way home.
The two sisters lived in the nearby Trillium Village apartments, RIPLEY at the nearby Residence on the Thames retirement community.
RIPLEY's son is Bob RIPLEY, senior minister at London's Metropolitan United Church and a weekly Free Press religion columnist.
"She died doing something she loved and that was being with people," he said.
He said his mother was a life-long member of the church, and she and his father were married there in 1941.
She always sat in pew No. 19.
RIPLEY was a pioneer in early childhood education in Chatham and began the Fun With Friends program. She headed it for 28 years.
"You couldn't go anywhere with my mom in Chatham without someone speaking to her," her son said.
All four women were involved in the Anglican Church Women and at various times were deeply involved with "the Pie Ladies," a group that made meat pies once a month at the church for sale.
All four women often lunched together after church.
"The biggest shock of all was because people had talked to them that night," said Tom GORDON, the church treasurer.
The suggestion alcohol might have been a cause has made the shock sickening.
"That makes it even worse doesn't it?" GORDON said. "Such a waste."
If alcohol was a factor, it's a "sobering message," said Janine CARR, co-president of the Chatham chapter of Mothers Against Drunk Driving.
"It's very sad, very tragic and very sobering because it's four ladies," she said.
Only 20 minutes before the crash, she said, she was riding on a Santa Claus parade float with 15 children for Mothers Against Drunk Driving Canada through the intersection where the crash occurred.
WILCOX said church members are leaning on each other and their faith to get through the tragedy.
"We'll get through this week and support each other."

MORGAN, Marjorie C. (January 1, 1915-July 10, 2007)
After spending the last ten of her 92 years locked in the present, albeit imperfect, tense of Alzheimer's Disease, Marjorie MORGAN, cherished and adored mother of: Joanne MORGAN, Vancouver, Doctor Terry MORGAN, Red Deer, Lesley GARDINIER (David), San Diego, John MORGAN, Edmonton, Judy KUBRAK, Ladysmith; grandmother of Suzanne DALEY, David KUBRAK, Calgary, Stewart MORGAN, Red Deer and Doctor Scott MORGAN, Ottawa; great-grandmother of Aurelia and Zenara DALEY of Calgary, departed this earth in the loving and serene manner we prayed she would take flight - cradled in the arms of her youngest daughter Joanne. Marjorie fulfilled the feminist dream, long before it was fashionable. Remarkably, she found a way to 'have it all' while caring for a husband and five children, as well as leading a long and accomplished career as a professional fiction writer, teacher, speaker and artist. Born in Saskatchewan and educated in Alberta where she relocated as a young child, Marjorie's fiction writing for both adults and children has been published in three countries, six anthologies and fourteen books as well as in countless magazine and newspaper articles. Marjorie also wrote for radio, television and film. Her screenplay for 'Marie-Anne,' written at age 62, was one of the first Canadian feature films ever produced in Alberta. It has been screened in North American and European theatres as well as on television. Filmed in 1977 at Fort Edmonton, it chronicles the adventures of Alberta's first white woman, Marie-Anne Lagimodiere (grandmother of Louis Riel), and her fur trader husband, Jean Baptiste in the early days of the West. Starring the late John Juliani and Andree Pelletier the film also introduced Tantoo Cardinal, who later went on to major roles in Dances with Wolves and Legends of the Fall. As a writer/instructor/speaker for the Canadian Author's Association, Alberta Culture and Canada Council as well as a long time writer-in-residence for the Edmonton Public School Board, Marjorie took great pride in inspiring scores of children and adults to launch their own successful writing careers. Among the many awards bestowed on Marjorie during her career are a City of Edmonton Literary Achievement Award in 1978; and the Media Club of Canada Memorial Medal for best radio writing in 1969. Marjorie was also a talented artist. Her paintings hung in the Edmonton Art Gallery, the Alberta Lieutenant Governor's house, the University of Alberta and numerous private collections. Most importantly, Marjorie valued her family above all else: taking joy in her children and their offspring's achievements and adventures. She was tender and loving, yet independent and feisty. She had pluck. She wasn't afraid to go after what she wanted, like embarking on a writing career while her youngest children were still infants. To the very end she remained proud, courageous and engaged in life. Shy throughout most of her earlier life, in her later years Alzheimer's in some ways liberated her to boldly ask for all the affection she craved. She of ten held out her arms inviting hugs and kisses from family, Friends, care workers and strangers alike, while frequently repeating her private mantra '55555' to remind herself of her 5 beloved children. Thanks to Doctor Wakefield, the nurses, care workers, and dedicated support staff of Banfield Pavilion in Vancouver, British Columbia who cared for our mother in such a loving, professional and compassionate manner. Special thanks also to Sestilia Pettovello, and Nadia Guolo who showered Marjorie with all the kindness, care and love they dedicated to their own mother Theresa. A family memorial service will be held in Edmonton where she will be laid to rest in Mount Pleasant Cemetery. In lieu of flowers please make donations to the Alzheimer Society.

He was a long time member of the Royal Montreal Golf Club, and a Big Brother for many years. He also had a long association with Scouting. He loved camping and nature and I'm sure St. Peter had to widen the gate to get his beloved trailer through. He was a voracious reader and loved classical music but his greatest joy for many years has been the time spent with his grandchildren. He always said family is everything. Always stick together. We have and we will. A memorial was held in Montreal on January 3rd. The family would appreciate a donation to the Victorian Order of Nurses or a charity of your choice.

Husband watched as wife hit
Alleged racers face charges after two women are killed.
By Chris DOUCETTE, Sun Media, Mon., October 8, 2007
Derreck DOUGHERTY watched in his car's rearview mirror in horror Saturday as his wife and her best friend were killed in a crash in Brampton that police say was caused by street racers.
The Beeton man is feeling almost as helpless now as he waits to see how the justice system deals with two brothers who were arrested on Hwy. 50 north of Castlemore Rd. as Cynthia (Cindy) DOUGHERTY, 49, lay dead in her Pontiac Grand Am next to Mariarosa (Mar) DALSASS, 44.
"There's so much senseless slaughter out there. How many more innocent people have to die before this stops?" DOUGHERTY asked angrily yesterday, fighting back tears as he recalled his nightmare.
Steven MacHADO, 22, and his brother Brian, 27, are each charged with two counts of criminal negligence causing death.
DOUGHERTY said his wife, a mother of two and a grandmother of two, was driving about 10 car lengths behind him heading to Toronto for a day of shopping with her friend, a high school teacher twice been named the Toronto District Catholic school board's teacher-of-the-year.
Just after noon, DOUGHERTY looked up at his mirror and saw his wife's car smashed apart on the road behind him.
He pulled over and ran to Cindy's aide, but it was too late.
Her car was a mangled wreck in the centre of the highway, surrounded by several other destroyed vehicles. Tires, axles and other debris were strewn everywhere.
"It was the worst moment of my life." DOUGHERTY tried unsuccessfully to free the women.
He then phoned DALSASS' husband, Murray OSBORNE, who raced to the crash believing his wife was only unconscious.
Peel police said it appears the Audi, driven by the younger sibling, pulled onto the gravel shoulder to pass a dump truck and lost control as he re-entered the road.
