Police link deaths 50 km apart
Possible murder-suicide as woman's body found in Sutton home, man's on railway tracks
By Phinjo GOMBU, Staff Reporter, March 10, 2008
A man and a woman found dead in different parts of the Greater Toronto Area are linked in a possible murder-suicide, police say.
The body of a missing 27-year-old Newmarket woman was found by York Region police in a house on the main street of Sutton, near Lake Simcoe, on Saturday.
Investigators have not officially released her name and have refused to say how she died, but people who knew and worked with her said she was Brenda HEALEY of Newmarket.
Earlier Saturday, the man now suspected of killing her, Steve DANIEL, 41, was killed by a train near Thorah, in Durham Region's Brock Township, 50 kilometres east of Sutton.
Two investigations were launched until Durham police found a car linked to HEALEY near the train tracks, and a car registered to DANIEL was found at the home in Sutton.
"The two investigations are linked," is all York Region police Inspector Mark BROWN would say, adding police are not looking for any other suspects.
DANIEL, a former resident of Sutton, once lived next door to the home of the family friend where HEALEY's body was found.
HEALEY's family refused comment when contacted by the Star.
Both DANIEL and HEALEY worked in nearby Pefferlaw for Lois and Doug ANDREWS, who operate a bus company called Have Bus Will Travel, as well a private transportation company that serves the disabled.
DANIEL worked as a dispatcher; HEALEY was a driver. DANIEL had also lived in the ANDREWS' home for the past nine years.
"We are just floored," Lois ANDREWS said yesterday at their country home near Highway 48 and Pefferlaw Rd. as they tried to come to terms with the deaths.
The couple, who last saw DANIEL on Friday, said they did not suspect anything was wrong.
DANIEL's last words on Friday -- "See you at 10 o'clock" -- to Doug ANDREWS, indicated he would return later that night.
Lois and Doug ANDREWS described DANIEL as a charming, friendly and loyal employee who went to the local Knox United Church. As far as they knew, DANIEL and HEALEY were just Friends.
Other residents of Sutton who knew DANIEL, however, said there was a dark side to the man, whose family once owned what is now Village Traditions, a small gift store on High St.
Several residents told the Star DANIEL had spent time in jail after he stabbed a woman about a decade ago.
Outside the home yesterday, homicide investigators, in a large mobile command trailer, waited for a search warrant to enter the house.
The home belongs to John LEAROYD, whose father Harold LEAROYD was a well-known town dentist for many years.
John LEAROYD, who is believed to be in his 70s, has been in a Newmarket hospital for the past month after he was injured in a fall.
It's unclear whether DANIEL had access to LEAROYD's house, but neighbours and Friends said that the two got along well, with DANIEL often helping him with errands and other tasks.

Missing woman drowned
Body found in bathtub of Sutton home on same day as murder suspect killed himself, police say
By John GODDARD, Dale Anne FREED, Staff Reporters, March 12, A missing 27-year-old woman whose body was found in the bathtub of a sedate country home was drowned, an autopsy has determined.
The body of Brenda HEALEY was found Saturday in a latticed Sutton house on High St.
Police believe the Newmarket woman was murdered by a man who killed himself the same day.
On Saturday, Stephen DANIEL, 43, was struck by a train 50 kilometres east of Sutton, near Thorah, in Durham Region.
HEALEY and DANIEL were once co-workers at Have Bus Will Travel, a private transportation company serving the disabled and based in Pefferlaw, also east of Sutton, DANIEL's hometown.
HEALEY worked as a driver, DANIEL as a dispatcher.
DANIEL had lived at the home of his employers, Lois and Doug ANDREWS of Pefferlaw, for the past nine years. They never saw anything amiss, a shocked Lois ANDREWS had told the Star earlier.
But other residents said DANIEL had served time behind bars after he was convicted of stabbing a woman a decade ago.
DANIEL's car was found outside the Sutton home where HEALEY's body was found.
A car linked to HEALEY was found at the train tracks where DANIEL's body was found, police said.
Police said his death was deliberate.
"Durham police are investigating a suicide and we're investigating a homicide," said Duty Inspector John BURNESS of York Region police.
Currently, DANIEL is considered a suspect in HEALEY's murder.
"There's no other outstanding suspects," said Burness.
"However York Region homicide officers are continuing their investigation," said BURNESS.
"They want to make sure every avenue of the investigation is looked at before they come up with their conclusions."
DANIEL once lived next door to the Sutton home where HEALEY's body was found.
The owner of the home, John LEAROYD, had been recuperating in Newmarket hospital for the last month after injuring himself in a fall.
DANIEL had remained Friends with his former neighbour, a man in his 70s, acquaintances have said.
A funeral mass is to be said for HEALEY at Saint_John Chrysostom Roman Catholic Church in Newmarket at 10 a.m. Friday.
HEALEY's family was too distraught last night to talk about their loss.
"We're still grieving. Please give us our privacy," HEALEY's brother-in-law, Brian BAXTER, said from the dead woman's family home in Newmarket.
BAXTER said the family would be issuing their public message at the funeral.
Friends mourning the loss of Brenda HEALEY wrote of their loss on a Facebook page.
"She will always be remembered as a wonderful human being," wrote one friend.
"May you rest in peace, dear Brenda."

Platoon leader killed
By Murray BREWSTER, The Canadian Press, Wed., June 4, 2008
Kandahar, Afghanistan -- A Canadian officer on his first tour in Afghanistan was killed yesterday in a prolonged firefight with Taliban militants who stubbornly clung to patches of arid farmland west of Kandahar.
Capt. Richard (Steve) LEARY, 32, was leading a foot patrol involving Canadian and Afghan soldiers when they were ambushed with small-arms fire around 9 a.m. local time.
A sporadic, half-hour running battle ensued. LEARY was hit as his soldiers were moving toward the cover of a safer position.
An air strike was called in and the insurgents were beaten back.
"Steve was what we in uniform are expected to be: he was a soldier and a leader," Col. Jamie Cade, the deputy commander of Canadian troops in Afghanistan, told reporters at Kandahar Airfield where LEARY was evacuated by helicopter.
Cade said medics and doctors struggled to save LEARY, but he was pronounced dead in hospital.
"Every death or injury is deeply painful to us, but it is a risk that we -- as members of the armed forces -- understand and assume as we work to bring peace and stability to a country torn apart by decades of war," he said in a prepared statement.
No other soldiers were hurt in the engagement.
The army would not say precisely where in the Panjwaii district the extended battle took place, citing operational security and the need to keep militants guessing about the damage they have inflicted.
LEARY, a platoon commander, served with 2nd Battalion, Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry based in Shilo, Manitoba
The Brantford native was married but had no children.
His loss is being felt keenly by his men, said Maj. Jay Janzen, a senior army spokesperson in Kandahar.
"When you lose a leader as effective as Capt. LEARY, as personable, it is difficult, but we're just thinking about (his) family right now," said Janzen.
LEARY was the second soldier in a month to die in an ambush. The last was Cpl. Michael Starker, a reservist and Calgary paramedic whose goodwill patrol was attacked within sight of a major Canadian forward operating base.
The May 6 attack happened in the restive Zhari district, which like Panjwaii has been a hotbed of militant activity and bomb-makers.
There have been 84 Canadians soldiers and one diplomat killed since the start of the Afghan war. The latest combat death came a day after four Canadian soldiers and an Afghan interpreter were wounded in two separate attacks, also in the Zhari district. Two of the soldier badly injured in Monday's attacks have been evacuated to U.S. military hospital in Germany for further treatment.
Canadian troops, as part of an evolving strategy in the counter-insurgency war, have been conducting more foot patrols, leaving behind the protection of their armoured vehicles to be more reassuring to wary Afghans, whom they're trying to win over.
"It's dangerous business, there's no question about that, but if we're not out there doing our jobs we'll never be successful," said Janzen.

Canadian platoon commander shot dead
Brantford, Ontario, native is the second soldier in the past month to be killed in Taliban ambush
By Katherine O'NEILL, Page A10
Kandahar, Afghanistan -- A Canadian platoon commander leading a foot patrol in Kandahar province's hotly contested and dangerous Panjwai district was shot and killed yesterday morning, marking the second combat death for Canadian Forces in the past month.
"Steve was what we in uniform are expected to be: He was a soldier and he was a leader," Colonel Jamie Cade, deputy commander of Task Force Kandahar, said yesterday.
Captain Richard (Steve) LEARY, 32, who was serving his first tour in Afghanistan, is the second soldier since May 6 to be killed in an ambush.
The majority of the 27 Canadian casualties in Afghanistan since June of 2007 have been the result of homemade bombs placed on roads. Only three deaths have occurred in combat.
Capt. LEARY, with Second Battalion, Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry based in Shilo, Manitoba, was killed about 9: 30 a.m., local time, in the rural district, which is dotted with grape and wheat fields.
The Brantford, Ontario, native had been leading a foot patrol with several Canadian and Afghan National Army soldiers when they came under attack by Taliban and engaged in several running gun battles with the insurgents. The soldiers were taking cover when Capt. LEARY was shot.
No one else was injured.
The battle continued after Capt. LEARY's death, until a North Atlantic Treaty Organization-coalition air strike "defeated" the enemy, according to Major Jay Janzen, a Canadian military spokesman.
Capt. LEARY was flown by helicopter to the military hospital at Kandahar Air Field, but died of his wounds.
"Our medical personnel fought very hard to change the outcome, but sadly, they were unsuccessful," Col. Cade said.
Since the Canadian mission in Afghanistan began in 2002, 84 soldiers and one diplomat have been killed. Capt. LEARY's death is the 10th this year.
On May 6, Corporal Michael Starker, a Calgary paramedic with the Edmonton-based 15 Field Ambulance Regiment, was shot and killed in an ambush about 15 kilometres southwest of Kandahar City.
He was also on a military foot patrol at the time of the ambush.
"It's dangerous business, there is no question about that, but if we aren't out there doing our jobs, we'll never be successful," Major Janzen said, when asked whether military foot patrols are becoming too dangerous in certain areas.
Capt. LEARY had been stationed at a small combat outpost in Panjwai before his death.
The turbulent and ultraconservative district has become so dangerous in recent months that road convoys to resupply soldiers living at outposts in the area have become extremely rare because of concerns about roadside bombs.
Soldiers posted to the area rarely drive, and are usually left to hike in and out of the volatile area with all their belongings.
Security is low, with many locals in the district afraid of the Taliban.
They will sometimes stay silent about possible attacks against soldiers or even assist insurgents, for fear of reprisals against them or their families.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper offered condolences on behalf of Canadians to Capt. LEARY's family and Friends.
"Our thoughts and prayers are with them during this difficult time," he said in a statement.
"[Capt. LEARY] was making a difference, working alongside his fellow soldiers, to rebuild a war-torn country."
It has already been a difficult week for the Canadian military.
On Monday, four Canadians solders were injured, one seriously, in two separate incidents during security operations in nearby Zhari district. Two have been flown to a U.S. military hospital in Germany for further treatment.

Capt. LEARY dreamt of making a difference
By Caroline ALPHONSO with reports from Katherine O'NEILL in Kandahar, Afghanistan, and from The Canadian Press, Page A10
Soon after graduating from university, Captain Richard (Steve) LEARY joined the army.
He always dreamt about making a difference.
"This is something he always wanted to do," Capt. LEARY's mother, Gail, said yesterday. "He was a very good man."
"He always knew he wanted to go fight for his country," his aunt, Terry CARESWELL, said yesterday. "He just wanted to make people feel safe."
Yesterday, Capt. LEARY died trying to do just that. Only a few months into his first tour in Afghanistan, he was shot and killed as he led a foot patrol in the Panjwai district. The 32-year-old was a platoon commander with Second Battalion, Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry based in Shilo, Manitoba
In his hometown of Brantford, Ontario, Capt. LEARY was remembered as a caring man who loved fixing cars and keeping fit. "He was very protective of his family and his wife. He was very funny. Everybody always had fun when he was there," Ms. Careswell said.
Capt. LEARY and his wife, Rachel, met in high school. They started dating when he was 16 and she was 14. They were married in Brantford almost six years ago, and were planning on having children soon, his aunt said yesterday.
Capt. LEARY led an active life. He took karate lessons for six years, and he was on the football team at Brantford Collegiate Institute. He also loved to learn. He completed a bachelor's degree in history at McMaster University, and enjoyed reading books on psychology and religion.
Ms. CARESWELL said her nephew was looking forward to going to Afghanistan (both his grandfather and great-grandfather were in the army). But he was reluctant to share with his family what he saw there.
"He just told his parents they did not want to know what goes on over there," Ms. CARESWELL said. "He was very upset about what goes on over there."
After his tour, Capt. LEARY planned to continue to work in the army, but probably doing an administrative job, his aunt said. "He was a very good leader. He just really believed in us having our freedom and people having a better life," she said.
Major Jay Janzen, a Canadian military spokesman in Afghanistan, said Capt. LEARY was personable. He said "it's a very difficult time" for his platoon.
