Church overflowing for funeral of 'bright star'
'Don't let his name be forgotten,' uncle asks during two-hour ceremony
By Alex DOBROTA, Page A14
To his Friends and relatives, he was an artistic teenager with a fascination for snakes and pranks, who still sucked on his thumb at times - a star that burned out ahead of its time.
But to the hundreds of mourners who knew him little yet still showed up to celebrate his memory yesterday, Jordan MANNERS became an icon for the damage gun crime has wrought in their community.
Thirty minutes before the funeral of the 15-year-old began yesterday morning, the main room at Christian Centre Church, near Jane Street and Finch Avenue, was already filled to capacity.
Hundreds more people packed the hallways, the balconies and a nearby gymnasium to watch a live feed of the proceedings. About 200 stood outside the church braving scorching heat. About as many waited at Beechwood Cemetery.
"I think it really struck a chord in the minds of people," said Pastor Dino ANDREADIS, who officiated at the ceremony. "I've done high-profile funerals, but never like this. I think this will really make a difference."
The church has a capacity of about 1,000 and Mr. ANDREADIS estimates more than 1,500 showed up yesterday.
The teen was shot last Wednesday inside his school, C.W. Jefferys Collegiate Institute. Two 17-year-old youths have been charged with first-degree murder.
After collapsing with grief on a chair steps away from his coffin, his mother, Laureen SMALL, took one last look at her son. She then watched pallbearers close the casket and the two-hour-long ceremony began.
One of Jordan's aunts told how he sucked on his thumb at times during his sleep. One of his teachers described how he easily reproduced a complicated architecture diagram in less than an hour. And the story of how Jordan brought snakes into his house elicited a rare moment of laughter.
"The world lost a bright, bright star," his aunt, Louisa MANNERS, said during her eulogy.
During one of the most emotional moments, Jordan's school mate and friend, Matthew ALAY, burst into tears and was unable to read a speech, which was delivered by a relative. "Jordan, may your soul rest in peace. I love you," the boy only managed to utter between sobs.
Other relatives said Jordan's death should serve as a call to action against gun violence in the community. "He's not a statistic," his uncle Gregory STOKES said. "Don't let his name be forgotten."
As the mourners spilled out in the parking lot after the ceremony, many young people expressed anger and disgust at the shooting.
"Our young man are dying and dying and this ain't right" said 14-year-old Jessica PAZMINO, who said she never met Jordan, but decided to come to the funeral to show support. "Hopefully, this will teach people a lesson."
"People are realizing that this is disgusting," said Martha BOTENG, 19. "I see people coming together more."
Beside her, the car carrying Jordan's casket set slowly in motion toward Beechwood Cemetery, followed by two lowriders - cars with modified hydraulics and suspension so as to allow the driver to bounce the vehicle up and down to the rhythm of hip-hop music.
In their wake, traffic on Jane Street backed up several blocks and the storm clouds gathering above shed a few drops.

Neighbours noticed man's strange mood before killings
By Alex DOBROTA with a report from Timothy APPLEBY, Page A13
Toronto -- Outside his Scarborough house, Alton BECKFORD showed the buoyant face of a loving husband, a man often seen at barbecues and one who installed a basketball net on his driveway for neighbouring children.
But at other times, sources say, he was violent. One neighbour said yesterday that he had beaten his stepdaughter. And a source close to the investigation told The Globe and Mail that he is suspected of having attempted to sexually molest a teenaged girl.
Mr. BECKFORD, 32, is believed to have killed himself after stabbing to death his wife, 47, and his mother-in-law, 78.
The domestic tragedy unfolded Monday night, less than 30 minutes after he drove his family home from his stepdaughter's graduation at a nearby school, where they cheered the girl who had won a history award and made the honour roll.
The girl, 13, escaped the house bleeding from slash wounds, still wearing her graduation dress. She screamed: "Alton killed my mother!" one neighbour recalled.
Born in Jamaica, Mr. BECKFORD settled on quiet Knowles Drive three years ago. He moved in with his common-law partner, a Hong Kong émigré and her two children. The couple bought a red-brick townhouse with a double garage on a $175,000 mortgage.
The woman was overjoyed with her new life, neighbours said. She had escaped an abusive husband in Hong Kong, a neighbour said. And Mr. BECKFORD even helped her find a job at a factory where he worked as a technician.
But that picture started showing cracks last year, according to a friend of the girl.
"Almost all the time she called me on the phone and she started crying and she told me how he hit her with a belt," said Brittney LEE, 14.
Brittney said the girl called police this year to report the abuse. When officers showed up at the house, she changed her story, afraid her mother would suffer if Mr. BECKFORD was arrested, Brittney said.
Police could not confirm yesterday whether officers responded to a domestic call.
His stepson, 17, dropped out of high school and avoided Mr. BECKFORD whenever possible, Brittney said.
Reports of the man's violent side came as a shock to his neighbours.
Some said Mr. BECKFORD was often seen driving his stepdaughter to school. He also attended get-togethers in the neighbourhood.
Most neighbours agree, though, that his mood changed about one month ago, when he was fired from his job. He was seen brooding and complaining of headaches. Restless, he wandered around the neighbourhood, asking for Tylenol and Advil.
Yesterday morning, drips of blood still stained the white wooden railing of a neighbouring veranda, where the girl had collapsed bleeding and screaming for help the night before.
Behind the police tape that cordoned off her house's front lawn, a banner in Chinese characters gleamed. It read: "Congratulations! Wish you fortune! Wish you wealth!"

Break-in cited in shootings
By Alex DOBROTA, Page A8
The teenager suspected in the double homicide that shook a quiet Scarborough neighbourhood on Wednesday morning fought off and shot dead two home intruders that targeted the house he was visiting, police said.
Livingston DAVIS, 16, was sleeping at the house on Rylander Boulevard, close to Sheppard Avenue East, shortly before 4 a.m. when the two men attempted to enter the premises, police said.
"A struggle ensues, he is armed with a gun, he shoots one, he chases the other one out of the house and shoots him," said Staff Inspector Brian RAYBOULD, head of the Toronto police homicide squad.
The first officers on the scene found Shawn DAY, 34, bleeding inside the house, and Clifford CHARLES, 43, slumped inside a black pickup truck that had jumped the curb on Rylander Boulevard and smashed into a tree.
Both men were from Toronto and both suffered a single gunshot wound to the chest. They died at a nearby hospital.
A source close to the investigation said the homicides were drug related and that the residence was a crack house.
As of yesterday, police were still hunting for Livingston. The teenager has no history of run-ins with the law or involvement in gang activity, Staff Insp. RAYBOULD said.
"The thing to do is to contact a lawyer or contact any one of the police investigators."
