Slain interior designer had been in 'downward spiral'
Toronto man had become addicted to sex, drugs and alcohol, acquaintance says
By Josh WINGROVE, Page A1
The demise of Ross MAGILL began some three years ago.
Mr. MAGILL had fallen for a Vancouver man in 2005. Their relationship blossomed quickly, and Mr. MAGILL - always prone to move on a whim - uprooted his life to be with his new partner out west.
Later that year, the couple split, and Mr. MAGILL returned to Toronto a changed man.
So began what Friends called a "downward spiral" of a gifted interior designer. Mr. MAGILL became addicted to drugs, sex and alcohol, and could not keep a job or apartment.
He grew promiscuous, bringing many younger men home to his latest midtown apartment, Friends said. Monday night, he let two others in - and soon afterward he was dead, the victim of a stabbing attack in a city where few recognized the man he'd become.
Born William Ross MAGILL in Hamilton in January, 1944, he displayed a flair for design early on. He never went to design school, instead learning on the job wherever he worked - in Florida, New York, Toronto, Vancouver and Bobcaygeon, Ontario, where his mother lived.
"He was a very talented designer, really a top-flight designer," said Diane WATTS, a home furnishings designer who'd worked with Mr. MAGILL.
John MANUEL, another Toronto designer, first met Mr. MAGILL at age 17.
"He was very well-liked. He was chock full of personality and devastatingly handsome," Mr. MANUEL said. But Mr. MAGILL had a "very checkered career," he added, moving on a whim and starting over each time. "He was successful in Florida, and he threw Florida away," Mr. MANUEL said.
Eventually, Mr. MAGILL, who Friends say was Human Immunodeficiency Virus-positive, returned to Toronto to get the benefit of the Canadian health-care system. His mother, with whom he was very close, died a few years ago. Soon after, he moved to Vancouver. On December 17, 2005, he called Ms. WATTS and asked if he could move back and stay with her.
"[The boyfriend] threw him out, basically, and Ross was never the same after that," Ms. WATTS said. "It just totally messed him up."
He stayed with Ms. WATTS for two months, weeping often. She didn't believe he was addicted to drugs at the time, but knew he'd battled alcoholism. He moved out in early 2006, and after brief stays at two other apartments (one on Alexander Street in Toronto, where Ms. WATTS suspects he picked up a drug habit,) he moved into the building on Delisle Avenue, near Yonge Street and St. Clair Avenue.
Over the past five months, he rarely returned phone calls from Friends. His only family, a sister, lives on the East Coast. While falling out of contact with his design associates, it appears Mr. MAGILL, at age 64, descended into a life of drugs, sex and alcohol.
"It was just a downward spiral," Ms. WATTS said. "He was really on a descent into hell."
Friends say he continued to attend Alcoholics Anonymous meetings, but that he wasn't looking for help.
"Everyone was upset about it for him, and tried in big ways to help him," Mr. MANUEL said. "It was getting to a point where I couldn't cope with his problems."
Mr. MAGILL became insular, only saying a quick hello to neighbours and choosing not to place his name in his building's front-door tenant directory.
He often brought in young male guests - "junkies," one tenant said - who neighbours believed to be lovers of his. "He got really mixed up in the wrong crowd," Ms. WATTS said.
But Mr. MAGILL, a proud man who spoke in such a way that neighbours believed he had a British accent, was shy about the relationships with young men. He would often send his partners up alone in an elevator so as not to arouse suspicion, neighbours said.
On Monday night, two men knocked on the door of his second-floor apartment. Mr. MAGILL let them in while a 23-year-old man living with him, identified by neighbours as his boyfriend of three months, was in the shower.
Soon afterward, Toronto police said, Mr. MAGILL had been stabbed "multiple" times and lay dead in his home.
"I believe he knew his attackers - at least one of them anyway. He opened the door," Detective Sergeant Dan NIELSEN said.
His 23-year-old guest heard the commotion and called police at 10: 42 p.m. He has been interviewed by police - saying he saw two men flee but was unable to give descriptions - and is not considered a suspect, police said.
Officers are reviewing security tapes from nearby buildings and found cocaine in Mr. MAGILL's apartment. They have made no arrests.
His frequent guests didn't please the superintendents of the 104-unit building. Much like his Friends, his neighbours warned him about the dangerous life he was leading, with young men coming and going.
"How can I say it nicely? I mentioned it many times, his 'friends,' said Agnes FORIKA, 47, with a knowing wink. "I promised him: 'One of them will kill you, Ross.' "
Mr. MAGILL is Toronto's 30th homicide of the year. An autopsy is scheduled for today.

LINDSAY, Doctor William Kerr, O.Ont., M.D., B.Sc. (Med.,) M.S., F.R.C.S.C., F.A.C.S.
(3 September 1920-5 February 2008)
Compassionate and caring to everyone he met, Bill LINDSAY passed away peacefully in his 88th year in Toronto. Dearly loved by his wife of 63 years, Peggy (FRANCES,) his children William (Patty,) Barbara (Norm HOTSON,) Katherine (John RILEY) and Anne (John WEYMAN,) and his grandchildren, Jennifer COLLARD (John,) Melissa and James LINDSAY, Brett (Daisy), Kai and Tyler HOTSON, Reed and Julia RILEY, and Tosh, Jesse and Luke WEYMAN. The eldest of five, he was predeceased by his brother Rod and will be remembered with love by his brothers Keith and Barrie and his sister Helen. Bill was born and raised in Vancouver, British Columbia. His parents were born near Lochwinnoch and left the Ottawa Valley on the afternoon of their wedding in 1919 on a one-way rail ticket to Vancouver. His father operated the Vancouver Tugboat Company and, by age 12, Bill was working part-time on the tugboats up and down the coast.
An outstanding doctor, educator and researcher, Doctor Bill LINDSAY spent most of his professional life in Toronto as head of the Division of Plastic Surgery at the Hospital for Sick Children. With skilled surgeon's hands, he helped more than 18,000 patients born with cleft lips and palates and congenital deformities of the hand, as well as accident and burn victims. His medical research focused on the healing of flexor tendons in hands, and he authored 126 medical publications. Bill was Professor, Division of Plastic Surgery at the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Toronto for 21 years. The many plastic surgeons who studied with him honoured him by establishing the W.K. Lindsay Club and the annual Lindsay-Thomson Symposium in Paediatric Plastic Surgery. He served in many hospital and academic roles, including President of both the Canadian Society of Plastic Surgeons and the American Association of Plastic Surgeons.
Starting in 1990, Bill coordinated Canadian International Development Agency's Canada-China Burn Centre Plastic Surgery Linkage Program, through which he became Honourary head of the Gansu Provincial People's Hospital in Langzhou City. In retirement, he served as medical trustee and advisor to the R.S. McLaughlin and J.P. Bickell foundations. Internationally and in Canada, Bill was widely recognized and, in 2003, was specially pleased to join the Order of Ontario.
For more than 50 years, Bill and Peggy's farm in the hills of Mono has been their beloved retreat. Together, they turned blowing sand into productive land, planting trees, creating ponds and protecting the headwaters and forests, while raising his Angus cattle. His family and many young colleagues joined him for tree-planting week-ends each spring, and with many hands and shovels, many acres were restored. Bill's love of outdoor life was shared with his children and grandchildren. Farming, fishing, skiing, gardening, horsemanship and beekeeping were learned at his side. Bill was at his farm regularly until the month before his death.
His family would like to extend sincere thanks to all the caregivers who helped Bill remain active and at home these past two years, and to the staff at the Toronto Western Hospital who cared for him the last three weeks. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Plastic Surgery and Burns Research Fund, c/o Dr. C. FORREST, Suite 5430, Hospital for Sick Children, 555 University Avenue, Toronto M5G 1X8. A service celebrating Bill's life will be held at Timothy Eaton Memorial Church in Toronto on Thursday, February 21 at 2 p.m. There will be a spring interment at Relessey Cemetery in Mono.
