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.

Desperate rescue bid fails
Relatives nearly drown trying to save a Quebec man presumed lost on Lake Huron.
By Norman DE BONO, Sun Media, Tues., July 3, 2007
A search continues yesterday along the shores of Lake Huron at Canatara Park in Sarnia for Mark DELISLE of Quebec, who is missing and presumed drowned after jumping from a boat on Canada Day. (Sue REEVE, Sun Media)
Sarnia -- Adel AMIN remembers the look on the face of his brother-in-law, just before he slipped beneath the waves of Lake Huron.
"It's like he was frozen in the water. He was not moving and I knew he was in trouble," said AMIN, 65.
He jumped in to try to save Mark DELISLE, 52, of Sherbrooke, Quebec
DELISLE's 16-year-old son also jumped in.
"(DELISLE) went under and he did not come up again. I did not see him again. We could not find him," AMIN said.
DELISLE, his son, an unidentified man and AMIN, of Sarnia, were in AMIN's 7.9-metre power boat in Lake Huron at the source of the St. Clair River about 1: 45 p.m. Sunday.
A bumper, used for docking, blew off the deck and into the water that had waves one to two metres high, Lambton Ontario Provincial Police said.
The boat circled back.
DELISLE, who was not wearing a lifejacket, jumped into the water to retrieve the bumper. He struggled to stay afloat.
"His son jumped in to try save him. He is only 16. He was so brave," AMIN said of the youth.
The boat was about 30 metres from shore and the powerful current and two-metre waves made rescue impossible and pushed AMIN and the man's son to the nearby beach.
"I almost drowned myself, the current was so strong," said AMIN.
"He was a wonderful man. Everyone loved him. He was so kind."
The boat drifted ashore at the tip of Canatara Beach.
Lambton Ontario Provincial Police's marine unit has been searching the water off Sarnia's Canatara Beach, where Lake Huron and the St. Clair River meet, since Sunday.
Dave BROWN, managing partner of the Bridgeview Marina and Sarnia Bay Marina, believes the incident is a tragic reminder how dangerous the waters at the river's mouth can be.
"It is tragic, very tragic. It can be very dangerous out there especially if the winds are blowing hard and they were blowing that day," BROWN said.
"There are strong currents, a strong undertow there. It shows us how powerful mother nature can be. You always have to be aware of the water."
AMIN moved to Sarnia about 20 years ago after working for United Technology Corp. in the United States.

Born May 27, 1921 in Toronto, eldest of six children born in Canada to Dina and Petre FILEFF, former Greek and Turkish subjects, from Western Macedonian mountain village of Trsye, who immigrated after World War I and adopted the anglicized name PHILLIPS. Lived on Wilkins Avenue in Cabbagetown area of Toronto. Attended Sackville Street School and Central Tech. Attended St. Cyril and Methody Macedonian Orthodox Church. Lifetime member of Daughters of Macedonia and Trsye Benevolent Society. Raised through the depression, she worked as a housekeeper and seamstress, for room and board and going dancing with sisters “Vee” and “Annie” at the Palais Royale or Masonic Temple. During the early years of World War 2 she met, and fell in love with a gentleman of the Air Corps, then Royal Canadian Air Force Airman L.O. MALONEY, to whom she was wed in 1943, after he returned from radar duty in England. Helen joined Larry when he was stationed at Royal Canadian Air Force Station Bagotville in 1944. After Sgt. MALONEY's demobilization, they started a family, living in a flat on Balsam Avenue in the Beach area of Toronto. While in Toronto, the family were members of Saint Michael's diocese. In 1951 the family moved to Point-aux-Trembles area of Montréal and later to St. Michel (1953-1972) at the northeast end of Montréal Island. While in Montréal, the family were members of St. Brendan's diocese. In 1972, moved to Scarborough, Ontario. Following Larry's early retirement in 1978, Helen and Larry wintered in Largo, Florida for 28 years of well-earned recreation and leisure time. In 2003, Helen and Larry moved to the family estate near Meaford, Ontario. Helen was the consummate homemaker, a skilled manager, budgeter, purchaser, chef, knitter, sewer, clothier, seamstress, launderer, cleaner, practical nurse and psychologist. She made it all seem easy. To children she was a cub and scout organizer, protector, comforter, supporter and healer. To her peers she was a graceful dancer, astute bridge partner, champion bowler, occasional golfer and good fun to be with at social events. To her husband, Larry, she was a lifelong friend, companion, partner and counsellor. Larry says that Helen saved him from an unstable life pursuing impractical daydreams. Between 1945 in Toronto and 1963 in Montreal, Helen gave birth to six sons. It was the great regret of her life that she never had a daughter, and so it was that she had a special affection for her nieces, grand-daughters and great-granddaughters. Helen was, in a category she herself sometimes applied to people, a “giver”. She was a good person with commendable standards of conduct and morality. Helen was always concerned about the feelings of others, always ready to lend a helping hand, always ready with a kind word. There are very few like her. She will be missed. Service held at 2 p.m. on Tuesday, 3 July 2007 at Gardiner-Wilson Funeral Home, 60 Denmark Street, Meaford, Ontario. (519) 538 2550 Visitation begins at noon. The family receives visitors at home following service. In lieu of flowers, please donate to the Alzheimer Society.

FASANELLO, Concetta "Connie" Immaculata (née TRAVOLO)
Mother, great-great-grandmother, friend, neighbour. Born December 8, 1897 in Italy. Died January 7 in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, of natural causes, aged 109.
By Greta DELONGH, Page L6
Connie FASANELLO was born on a Catholic feast day and died on one: The parade of the Madonna, marking the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, passed by her home in southern Italy as she was born, and hence her full name, Concetta Immaculata TRAVOLO. She died on the Feast of the Epiphany more than a century later.
In the early 1900s, 17-year-old Connie followed most of her seven older siblings to Canada. She lived for a short time in Sherbrooke, Quebec, with her brother Louis, who arranged her marriage to Matteo FASANELLO.
The couple moved to Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, and Connie gave birth to five children before her 24th birthday - John, Mary, Joseph, Ezio and Irene - and about a decade later had Howard, then Loretta.
Even during the Depression, Connie brought food to neighbours in need. Her home was like a big restaurant, recalled one family friend. She was fun to be around, a happy, laughing woman who loved to dance, sing and slip a little brandy into her coffee.
Matteo died in 1972, and the couple's apartment was torn down during urban renewal in the 1970s, so Connie moved into a small seniors' apartment nearby. Her door was literally always open, until the fire marshal finally insisted she keep it closed. Still, she'd offer visitors all they could eat and pouted if they said no.
In gratitude, about 45 of her "boys" - her sons and their Friends - held a Mother's Day banquet in 1980 for "Mama Connie" (a name she chose when she became a young grandmother).
She didn't spend all her time in the kitchen; she travelled to the West Coast, the United States and Southern Ontario to visit family.
Life was not without its challenges. She cared for two of her sons in her home when they were dying from cancer, and in the end survived five of her children. Several years ago she landed in the hospital, seriously ill with painful pancreatitis. She was released several months later, but remained bedridden and lived her final years in Loretta's home.
She had always refused to reveal her age - "Thirty-nine," she'd say - and no one else dared utter it. But eventually family and Friends wanted to celebrate her longevity, so a birthday "come-and-go" became a much-anticipated annual event.
Before her last party, just a month before her death, a friend arranged for letters of congratulation from the Pope, the Queen, Prime Minister Stephen Harper and other politicians. Her guests sang as she blew out the candles on her cake. Just two candles: a three and a nine.
Greta DELONGH is one of Connie's 21 grandchildren.

DELVE, Peter
Husband, traveller, horizontal borer. Born May 5, 1944, in Liverpool, England. Died March 10 of brain cancer in Toronto, aged 62.
By Alison DELVE, Page L6
Peter was sponsored by the Canadian government in 1967 to immigrate as a horizontal borer, a job description he readily used to attract the ladies.
He travelled to Australia and New Zealand (where he met and married me in 1969).
Based in Toronto, he worked hard to finance overland and sailing adventures that spanned three continents.
In 1969, we travelled from Australia to England using local transport across Asia, India, Afghanistan and Turkey; in 1972, we went on the Trans-Siberian Railway to Khabarovsk, Russia, before hitchhiking around Japan and boarding the P&O ship Arcadia in Yokohama, sailing down to Auckland.
In 1977, we did a seven-month trip through South America in a home-built Volkswagen camper, and in 1980, we took a four-year trip through Europe, Africa and South America in a (better) home-built van.
During this period, Peter owned and operated companies manufacturing precision parts, some of which were integral to the production of Canadarm, part of the space shuttle program.
Peter was devoted to the Liverpool Football Club and had the typical Scouse wit: I remember when the Beatles were cool (as was everything related to Liverpool) and young girls would hear his Liverpool accent and gush: "Do you know the Beatles?" Straight-faced, he'd reply, "Sure, love, we went to different schools together."
Peter was a great storyteller and could make the most mundane incident involving people we met on our travels into a hilarious comedy sketch.
From the description of the border policeman in northern Uganda who was going to make us drive 1,000 kilometres back to Khartoum to get a piece of paper to exit the country (Peter told him we had the same Queen and persuaded him we were practically first cousins); to the Afghan border police officer at a checkpoint who ordered me out of the room - and Peter promptly shook his hand.
Cancer abruptly changed everything in 1989 when, at age 45, Peter became a househusband on disability.
Even then, his sense of humour prevailed as he joked that the same government that paid his fare to Canada now paid him to be sick. Peter beat all odds by living with brain cancer nearly two decades longer than the initial prognosis.
His death marked the end of an 18-year struggle with brain cancer that slowly stole his capacity to work, travel, sail, walk or even talk.
He loved a good drink, a good party, a good argument and me.
Alison DELVE is Peter's wife.
