Teen charged after mom killed
The 'dedicated, doting' mother of five was biking when struck by a driver accused of drunk driving.
By April KEMICK and Kate DUBINSKI, Sun Media, Sun., May 27, 2007
A mother of five is dead and a teenager charged with drunk driving causing death after a crash west of London that could have been prevented, police say.
Mary Beth THOMAS, 47, of Middlesex Centre, was riding her bike north along Coldstream Road when she was hit by a northbound car near Sinclair Drive about 9 p.m. Friday.
THOMAS, lauded by those who knew her as a "dedicated, doting" mother of five, was taken to University Hospital in London, where she died of her injuries.
The driver of a Plymouth Neon, Andrew Raymond DAVIS, 18, also of Middlesex Centre, has been charged with impaired driving causing death, possession of marijuana and breaching conditions.
"She was just the most devoted mother and wife," said Rev. Pam TOLMAY of Vanneck United Church, where THOMAS was a lifelong member.
"It's a devastating loss for her children, her family and this community."
Described as an avid sports fan who "took great pride in watching all of her children play minor sports," THOMAS supported 4H Junior Farmers and was an active member of her church.
"She was an incredible person," said fellow church member Ken NIXON.
Area police and activists against drunk driving expressed disappointment about the nature of the crash.
"This is a preventable tragedy that happens all too often," said David FINLEY, community leader for Mothers Against Drunk Driving in Haldimand-Norfolk.
"This type of thing shatters families and causes irreparable damage that is needless."
Ontario Provincial Police spokesperson Const. Michelle SMITH said THOMAS's death was preventable.
"It's always (a) tragedy when anybody loses their life. And this one could have been avoided," SMITH said.
"We want to remind drivers to look out for cyclists. It's nice out now, and cyclists are out, both adults and children.
"We also want to remind drivers to drive sober."

'True hero' killed in the line of duty
Two men face charges after 22-year veteran is slammed into a tree while attempting to arrest suspected airbag thief
By Timothy APPLEBY and Geoff NIXON with a report by Alan CAIRNS, special to The Globe and Mail, Page A1
Markham, Ontario -- An undercover York Regional Police officer, dragged to his death yesterday by an alleged car thief on a sleepy residential street, is "a true hero" who paid the ultimate price for his "selfless sacrifice," Police Chief Armand LA BARGE said.
A charge of manslaughter has been laid against a 19-year-old Toronto man, with further charges pending. A second suspect in custody also faces an array of criminal charges.
Constable Robert PLUNKETT was a 22-year veteran of York Regional Police and 43-year-old father of three. He died after an abortive 5 a.m. operation when he approached the driver's side of a car to arrest a man suspected of trying to steal airbags - a profitable mini-industry in the auto-theft world.
The suspect threw the Honda into reverse and Constable PLUNKETT was trapped by the open driver's-side door. The vehicle drove over a curb, across a lawn and slammed into a tree, fatally injuring the officer, Chief LA BARGE said.
Backup police then rammed the vehicle and arrested the driver as he attempted to escape. The other suspect, nearby in a second car, was also quickly apprehended.
Rushed to Scarborough Grace Hospital, Constable PLUNKETT died soon afterward - the first York Regional Police officer killed in the line of duty in more than 20 years.
The slain officer once won a bravery reward for rescuing an elderly woman from a frozen lake and was renowned for his work on behalf of the Special Olympics, a forum for disabled athletes.
"Rob and police officers like him are true pillars of the community that we serve, and their selfless sacrifice and their hard work ensures that the communities that we call home are safe places in which to live and to raise a family," Chief LA BARGE said.
Asked if Constable PLUNKETT's approach of the suspect was in line with normal procedure, Chief LA BARGE replied, "Surveillance officers, when they undertake these types of details, formulate a plan as to how they would effect the arrests where arrests need to be made."
As upwards of 30 officers descended on the crime scene early yesterday, residents of Ascot Crescent described the chaos.
Startled awake by the ruckus, one resident described seeing Constable PLUNKETT lying on the street.
"I heard a very loud noise and somebody yelling," said a woman who asked that her name not be published. "He was lying on the ground and they were trying to get him to breathe."
She said she took a blanket outside to an emergency worker in hopes that it would be passed on to Constable PLUNKETT, but it was too dark for her to tell if it was eventually placed upon him.
A few doors away, at a home directly across the street from where he was killed, another homeowner recounted hearing officers yelling, "Breathing! Breathing!"
Police had followed two cars - both Hondas - from an address in Toronto to Ascot Crescent, in the Birchmount Road and Steeles Avenue area. At least one of the vehicles was stolen and police believe it had been taken to a quiet location to remove its airbag.
The driver was trying to do just that when Constable PLUNKETT moved in for the arrest, Chief LA BARGE said.
The death is the first killing of a police officer in York Region since 1984, when two officers died in the line of duty within weeks, and sent shock waves across the force, formed in 1971 and now serving more than 900,000 people.
"It's an organization where we've not lost many officers, but even one is one too many," Deputy Chief Bruce HERRIDGE said.
The theft of airbags and other auto accessories is a long-established business, said Detective Staff Sergeant Scott MILLS, who heads the Ontario Provincial Police auto-theft unit.
"There is a very large grey market for replacement auto components, airbags being one, along with Global Position System, stereos, body components - things that can easily be put into high-end vehicles," he said.
"Body shops buy them. There's a very low profit margin in auto body repair, so if the owner can buy, say, airbags for a Cadillac Escalade for $100 on the grey market, then he doesn't have to go to General Motors and buy them for $400."
As for the thieves, police say they range from drug-hungry addicts needing a fix, to slick, well-organized criminal gangs.
"And some shops buy them up like candy," another police source said.
In this instance, detectives believe the suspects specialized in the theft of airbags, which also get shipped abroad to developing countries.
Chief LA BARGE suggested Constable PLUNKETT had no choice but to act as he did.
"Surveillance officers work in a team environment, but the situations that they encounter can happen so quickly that there is absolutely no alternative but for the surveillance officers to make those arrests," he said.
"And this is the particular situation that we are dealing with here."
Chief LA BARGE indicated that 43 airbags had been stolen in Markham since January of this year - most from Honda and Acura model vehicles - and that this particular investigation had been under way for two or three weeks.
Nadeem JIWA, 19, has been charged with manslaughter, which usually describes an act of unintentional homicide. Baseer YOUSAFZAI, 23, faces charges of breach of bail and possession of stolen property.
Both men are from Toronto and likely face additional charges, police said.

At least nine drown over civic holiday weekend
By Geoff NIXON, Page A5
The long, hot days of summer see more people hitting lakes, pools and rivers, and subsequently more drownings, often in accidents that could have been prevented.
Over the civic holiday weekend alone, at least nine people drowned nationwide.
"Unfortunately, I'm not surprised," Barbara Byers, public education director of the Lifesaving Society, said of the number of weekend drowning deaths.
"What's sad about it, is that most of these are preventable and that many people just don't realize the risks and aren't quite aware of what they can do to reduce the chances of drowning," she said.
The weekend deaths include two young girls and seven adult men who drowned in separate incidents:
On Saturday, a three-year-old girl drowned in an inflatable pool in her backyard in Stoney Creek, Ontario, near Hamilton, in the early evening.
Earlier that same day, 56-year-old Bernard Morneau of Victoria was found unconscious on the banks of the Athabasca River after his canoe overturned. A 24-year-old Hamilton man also died early Saturday after jumping into a closed swimming pool at a motel in Sauble Beach, Ontario Police said Bruno LARANJEIRO, who was in the pool with several people, didn't know how to swim.
On Sunday, a 39-year-old man drowned after falling off a log in a provincial park near Chilliwack, B.C.
On Monday, a five-year-old girl from Hamilton drowned at a conservation area swimming pool in Dunnville, Ontario, during a church picnic.
There were two other deaths the same day in Ontario: A man drowned in Musselman Lake just north of Stouffville, Ontario, and 19-year-old Lucas TINSLEY drowned at a provincial park northeast of Lake Simcoe.
The body of Calgary's Scott Grimes, 26, was found in Alberta's Clearwater River on Monday. He was last seen on July 29 when he was swept away from a group of fellow swimmers.
Royal Canadian Mounted Police suspect alcohol was a factor in the feared drowning of a 19-year-old man in a provincial park near Moose Jaw in the early hours of yesterday morning. The man had been swimming with a group of young people when he apparently got pulled into the current, police said. He has not been seen since.
The body of 55-year-old Tony WONG was pulled from Chemong Lake near Peterborough, Ontario, yesterday by police divers. He had been fishing with his family Monday and went into the water without a lifejacket.
For children's water safety, Ms. Byers said it is important for them to learn swimming skills, but they also need to be closely supervised.
Ms. Byers added that a drowning can occur without drawing a lot of attention from nearby swimmers, and can happen much more quickly than some would think.
"Parents don't realize how quickly a person can drown, how quiet it is," she said. "Unlike what we may have seen from old movies where people are waving their arms and screaming… that's not what happens.
"Most people, you don't hear anything," she said. "They just get a gulp of water, another gulp of water and then it's over in 30 seconds."
And parents can be vulnerable too: In the two weeks before the holiday weekend, two fathers were killed in tragic accidents while trying to save their children from drowning.
On August 1, a 44-year-old Quebec man drowned while saving his teenage son from undercurrents at Cavendish Beach National Park in Prince Edward Island. In a similar incident only days before, a 47-year-old father of three from Vancouver drowned while trying to save his 10-year-old son who ran into trouble while swimming in Lake Superior.
In both cases, the children survived but their fathers died.
In general, Ms. Byers said, of the few hundred drowning cases that happen each summer, many can be prevented by people taking better stock of their surroundings: The danger comes when people ignore the risks of their swimming environments or overestimate their swimming abilities.

Police investigate stabbings in separate incidents
By Geoff NIXON with a report from Unnati GANDHI, Page A12
A love triangle is believed to have prompted an attack in Scarborough that left a woman in critical condition in hospital last night.
Homicide investigators were on standby after a man was found across the street from a Scarborough police station with an unconscious woman lying by his side early yesterday morning.
A 45-year-old man was taken into custody.
A report from CTV News said the woman is 22 years old and a mother of three children, aged 3, 2 and 11 months.
Police believe the suspect confronted the woman at the Roycroft motel in Scarborough where she was with another man. Police said the suspect allegedly slashed the other man with a knife and then dragged the woman to his van and drove her to an apartment building across the street from the police station, near Birchmount Road and Eglinton Avenue. The other man was taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
The woman is believed to have been both beaten and stabbed.
In a separate incident, police responded to a fatal stabbing just south of the East York Town Centre yesterday morning. They received an emergency call around 7: 15 a.m.
When they arrived, officers found a man without vital signs who had been stabbed several times while in the parking lot of an apartment building.
He and a man he knew had gotten into a verbal argument that police say quickly escalated into Engin YILMAZ getting stabbed. Mr. YILMAZ, who lived in the building, was taken to hospital, where he died.
After a short investigation by homicide detectives, Hikmet DASDEMIR surrendered to police in 53 Division last night. The 35-year-old has been charged with second-degree murder.

Gym shooting victim was 'targeted,' police say
By Geoff NIXON, Page A13
The execution-style slaying of a man outside a Richmond Hill fitness club yesterday is being investigated for possible links to organized crime, police say.
Jason PELLICORE, 34, was gunned down outside Complete Fitness, east of Yonge Street and north of Major Mackenzie Drive, shortly after 9 a.m.
A police source told The Globe and Mail yesterday that Mr. PELLICORE may have links to outlaw motorcycle gangs including the Bandidos - a small, U.S.-based, outlaw motorcycle club whose profile has shrunk in Canada following the sensational killing of eight members and associates last year.
Police say Mr. PELLICORE was stepping out of his vehicle to enter the gym when he was shot several times. He was taken by ambulance to York Central Hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.
Police say a man on a small motorcycle or motor scooter, who was wearing a shielded helmet, was seen in the parking lot prior to the shooting and is considered a person of interest.
John RUMNEY, 46, saw a man on a motorcycle drive up to the gym parking lot from the south side of the building around 9 a.m.
While he didn't hear the actual shots, Mr. RUMNEY said the incident "really freaked" him. "In broad daylight, in a parking lot," he said. "As bad as it gets."
Detective Sergeant John SHELDON of York Regional Police said that elements of the shooting - the timing, the location and the number of people involved - lead police to believe that Mr. PELLICORE was known to his killer.
"This was not a random shooting, he was targeted," he said.
Tony FARRAH, 55, was inside the fitness club when a woman came running into the building yesterday.
"The woman was distraught," Mr. FARRAH said. "A person from the front desk ran out [to the parking lot] with her."
When Mr. FARRAH went out to see what had happened, he immediately recognized Mr. PELLICORE, whom he knew as a regular fixture at the gym.
Relatives who answered the phone at Mr. PELLICORE's King City home yesterday said they had no comment.
Management at the fitness club did not return calls to reporters, but left an answering message for their clients that the facility will remain closed until tomorrow morning.

Helmeted suspect sought in fatal shooting outside fitness club
By Geoff NIXON, Page A11
Police in York Region have zeroed in on a helmeted suspect in connection with the fatal shooting of a man outside a Richmond Hill fitness club.
A person on a motor scooter or small motorcycle was seen in the parking lot of Complete Fitness, east of Yonge Street and north of Major Mackenzie Drive, in the moments before a King City man was fatally shot Wednesday, shortly after 9 a.m.
Jason PELLICORE, 34, was then taken to hospital where he succumbed to his wounds.
The suspect, originally considered a person of interest, was wearing a fully shielded helmet - grey or light-coloured - and was last seen driving away from the scene of the crime.
Police are asking the public to come forward with any information they have on the identity of the suspect, and any other details that may help with the investigation.
Video images of the suspect are available for download on the York Regional Police website.
A woman who came to the door yesterday at Mr. PELLICORE's home in King City - a modest bungalow with white siding and black shutters - had little to say about his death.
"He's fine," the woman said as she closed the front door. "He's dead."
A police source told The Globe and Mail on Wednesday that it is believed Mr. PELLICORE may have had links to outlaw motorcycle clubs - including the U.S.-based Bandidos, a biker gang whose profile has shrunk in Canada since eight of its members were found dead in Shedden, Ontario, in April, 2006.

Father, sons die in two separate crashes
By Geoff NIXON, Page A10
Members of an Ottawa Valley family are reeling from the loss of two adult brothers and their father in a pair of tragic automobile crashes late in the Labour Day weekend.
Ricky LANDRIAULT, 36, of the Township of Greater Madawaska, was found in his sport utility vehicle on Tuesday morning near Calabogie, Ontario
Police believe he was speeding at the time of his crash and that the wheels of his vehicle slipped off the pavement. When he tried to correct his path, he veered across the road and struck a large tree.
He died alone at the scene.
Renfrew Ontario Provincial Police Constable Janice SAWBRIDGE said yesterday Mr. LANDRIAULT had last been seen at the Lannin Funeral Home in nearby Smiths Falls.
He had been planning the funerals for his brother and father, who were killed in a crash in Montague Township earlier in the weekend.
Louis LANDRIAULT Jr., 40, and his father, Louis LANDRIAULT Sr., 68, died when the car they were travelling in - a Dodge Neon driven by Louis Sr. - crashed into a hydro pole late Sunday afternoon.
Police said they, too, were speeding and lost control of their vehicle.
Constable SAWBRIDGE said the LANDRIAULT family deaths were the latest in a string of preventable collisions that have plagued Ontario roadways this summer.
"It's been horrible," she said. "We've said it all summer: 'Buckle up, slow down, stop the aggressive driving.' "
Neither Ricky nor Louis Jr. were wearing seatbelts at the time of their deaths.
"Look at what this poor family now has to go through," Constable SAWBRIDGE said.
Perry SSAINTBIN, a family friend who had known the brothers and their father for five years, said yesterday he mourns most for those left behind - the 15-year-old and three-year-old sons of Louis Jr., who are going to grow up without their dad, their uncle and their grandfather.
"Both the kids are just hurting inside so bad, Mr. SSAINTBIN said yesterday, fighting back tears.
Constable Paige WHITING of Lanark County Ontario Provincial Police said yesterday that Louis Jr. and his father were trying to catch up to another vehicle. The other vehicle - driven by Sharon DONNELLY, 37, common-law wife of Louis Jr. - was so far ahead they could not even see it at the time of their crash.
The couple had just had a fight, Ms. DONNELLY said, adding she had wanted to have a temporary separation and Louis Jr. was upset. She then took a drive from the house they shared in Smiths Falls to let things cool off, and he and his father had followed.
Now she will never get to see him again.
"I didn't want to leave him," Ms. Donnelly said yesterday. "This was the man I was going to stand beside the day he died - when he was 80."
Although the two had only met last December, they had planned to get married in three years time.
"He was the love of my life, he was very generous," Ms. DONNELLY said of Louis Jr. "I waited 37 years to meet a man just like that. He was perfect in every way."
The two brothers and their father will have a joint memorial service at the same funeral home where Ricky helped to plan services for Louis Jr., and Louis Sr., only hours before his death.
