Couple stabbed to death in daylight by total stranger
The couple, aged 52 and 53, were described as 'outstanding' members of the community
By The Canadian Press, Fri., May 2, 2008
Brampton -- A married couple stabbed to death during an afternoon visit to a plaza in Brampton were "wonderful people" who became the unfortunate victims of a "completely unprovoked" attack, Peel police said yesterday.
Nazifa SHAHGHASY, 52, and her husband, Rahimullah SHAHGHASY, 53, were at the plaza for a medical appointment Wednesday afternoon when a stranger brandishing two knives attacked and killed them.
They leave behind a 21-year-old son and a 19-year-old daughter.
The SHAHGHASYs were "outstanding members of our community" who came to Canada from Afghanistan 20 years ago, said Insp. Norm ENGLISH.
"This was a stranger attack, unprovoked, in broad daylight," he said.
"They did not know each other prior to that day."
Rahimullah SHAHGHASY was buying food while his wife made an appointment at a dentist's office, police said.
As she returned to their car, a man armed with two knives -- with blades about 25 centimetres long -- began stabbing her "for unknown reasons," English said.
As Rahimullah SHAHGHASY saw his wife being attacked, he rushed to save her but was also stabbed. Bleeding from his wounds, he staggered into a plaza shop for help before collapsing.
They were both pronounced dead at the scene.
When police arrived, the suspect started stabbing himself, prompting officers to use a Taser to subdue him, ENGLISH said.
The suspect was taken to hospital, where he was under police guard yesterday and in critical but stable condition.
ENGLISH said the man, who is from Brampton, will be charged with second-degree murder once his condition improves. He said his name will be released once he is charged.
ENGLISH said the suspect is "very well known" to them on a "variety of criminal matters," but he would not elaborate on the charges.

GRIEVE, Amy Elizabeth
Mother, traveller, teacher, astute investor. Born June 4, 1906, in Tyendinaga Township, Ontario Died June 20 in London, Ontario, of old age, aged 101.
By Doug ENGLISH, Page L6
Amy GRIEVE never needed a computer: She had a built-in one. In a brain that kept ticking almost to the end, she stored, among other things, the birthdays and wedding anniversaries of every member of her extended family. Hallmark must have fattened its bottom line on her bulk card purchases. And each card contained a gift of money.
Unusually tiny when born, Amy never did top five feet. But she confounded the prediction of the doctor who delivered her that she wouldn't live more than a year.
A sheaf of yellowing certificates unearthed after her death attests to her abilities - honours at everything from the Royal Conservatory of Music to business and teachers' colleges.
Amy started teaching elementary school in Trout Lake, near Bancroft, Ontario, but a few years later switched schools to Northern Ontario. Stepping off the train in Tomiko, north of North Bay, she was spotted by Elliott GRIEVE, a railway telegrapher. He subsequently wooed and wed her.
They lived up and down the Ontario Northland railway line. One stop was Cobalt, where, during the Second World War, Amy founded a Finnish Red Cross chapter. This was testimony to her organizational abilities, as she hadn't a drop of Finnish blood. It became the highest-producing branch in town.
Widowed at 50, with a car and a small insurance policy as her only assets, Amy made enough money buying and selling houses and investing in mortgages to help put two daughters through university and send a third to private school.
While one daughter attended college, Amy and a three-year-old grand_son lived and travelled in Mexico and the United States, satisfying one of Amy's great loves - travel.
She often wintered alone in Guadalajara, Mexico, and had no qualms about borrowing from the bank if need be to finance trips to Europe, including the last transatlantic crossing of the Polish liner Stefan Batory.
When macular degeneration put an end to bridge and euchre games, Amy joined the London Public Library's talking books program and taught herself to knit afghans by touch alone.
At 99, she was still doing her own cooking and household chores in a home she shared with a daughter and son-in-law. By then, hearing problems prevented her from using talking books, but she exercised her prodigious memory and computer-like brain by trying to recall the names of all the pupils in her Grade 4 class and calculating the compound interest on a five-year Guaranteed Investment Certificate in her head.
Doug ENGLISH is Amy's son-in-law.

Stabbing ends 20 years of peace for Afghan couple
Police detail fatal attack at Brampton mall
By Anthony REINHART and Timothy APPLEBY and Susan KRASHINSKY, Page A1
Brampton, Ontario -- They called him Papa around the Planet Ford dealership, although Rahim SHAHGHASY was just 53.
The nickname just seemed to fit Mr. SHAHGHASY, a car detailer with a fatherly manner whose love of friendly chatter came a close second to the fondness he held for his wife, Nazifa, and their two grown children.
Yesterday, those children, along with Friends, relatives and neighbours, struggled with a horror at odds with the peaceful life the couple had led since leaving Afghanistan for Canada two decades ago: their violent deaths outside a Brampton strip mall at the hands of a seemingly crazed man they didn't know.
"This man was armed with two knives and the attack was completely unprovoked," Inspector Norm ENGLISH of the Peel homicide squad told a packed media conference.
"The husband saw what was occurring and attempted to save his wife, but was overpowered by the male."
The 28-year-old assailant remains under police guard in hospital recovering from serious knife wounds he inflicted on himself after the noon-hour attack on Wednesday outside the Red Maple Plaza.
The incident was initially thought to be a marital dispute in which a woman was killed along with a male passerby trying to help her, but police amended their theory yesterday.
Insp. ENGLISH said Ms. SHAHGHASY had just made a dental appointment at the plaza and was walking to her car when she was accosted by the knife-wielding man, who was "very well known" to police, though a stranger to her.
Her husband, meanwhile, had made a quick trip into a small grocery store in the plaza. When he came out, he saw his wife being attacked and ran to her.
"Both victims suffered fatal stab wounds and died at the scene," Insp. ENGLISH said, adding that Mr. SHAHGHASY first made his way, bloodied, into another business in the plaza to ask a merchant to call for help.
Police arrived to find the assailant stabbing himself in the neck and used a taser to subdue him. His condition, described as critical but stable yesterday, has prevented police from questioning him and has delayed the laying of second-degree murder charges. His name will be withheld until that happens, likely in the next few days, the officer said.
The suspect, a Brampton resident, was out on bail on a charge involving violence, which Insp. ENGLISH would not disclose.
Autopsies will be conducted today and the funeral will be held as soon as possible, in keeping with Islamic custom.
The circumstances of the triple stabbing, which pushed Peel's homicide tally for the year to 11, are being examined by the province's Special Investigations Unit, which probes all police-related confrontations resulting in death or serious injury.
"The victims are wonderful people who were outstanding members of our community," Insp. ENGLISH said.
The impact on the community was evident in the parade of vehicles that converged yesterday on Siesta Court, a quiet cul-de-sac of 13-year-old homes where the SHAHGHASYs bought a tidy, brick-clad two-storey house for $415,000 in 2006.
Their home, about 10 kilometres from where they died, was often the scene of happy gatherings, but yesterday, relatives and Friends wept and embraced in the street, while news reporters and a few neighbours looked on.
"The family is in a state of shock," said Shawn JAMSI, whose wife is Ms. SHAHGHASY's sister. "My wife has been in the hospital, back and forth" from the shock, he said.
Ms. SHAHGHASY ran a clothing store in Brampton, and "I'd always see her dress up really professional with a briefcase or a purse, and I always thought, 'wow,' said neighbour Christina SASSO.
Yesterday morning, Ms. SASSO watched as the couple's 19-year-old daughter, Kubra, prepared the outside of the house for the onrush of grieving kin.
"I just saw her sweeping the driveway, the dirt; I was just watching her, just sweeping and sweeping," Ms. SASSO said. "It looked like she was in a daze, and it just brought tears."
Mr. SHAHGHASY had been slowly but steadily recovering from a workplace accident about two years ago, neighbours said. He had been using a walker to get around, but had recently moved up to a cane.
"I said, 'I'm so happy to see you like that,' and he said, 'Yes, I'm doing really good,' Gorretti ANDRADE, who lives a few doors away, recalled from an encounter three weeks ago.
The couple's positive outlook and good humour came up time and again in interviews with those who knew them.
Giovanni ZAMBITO, who lives next door, recalled them as "probably the nicest people I ever met, to tell you the truth."
Gurpreet VANDER, also a neighbour, broke into tears upon learning what had happened. She said Mr. SHAHGHASY often played with her children and would stop on the way to get his mail and chat, since they both spoke Urdu.
"No other families understand our language, and we don't understand their language," Ms. VANDER said. "So sometimes we would talk."
Mr. SHAHGHASY's penchant for talk was well known to several car dealers in the Brampton Auto Mall along Bovaird Drive, where he cleaned cars in preparation for delivery. He most recently worked at Planet Ford, while the couple's 22-year-old son, Qaiss, is a salesman at a nearby Mitsubishi dealership.
Between phone calls in the showroom yesterday, a young receptionist at Planet Ford described the elder Mr. SHAHGHASY as a wise man who, despite being unable to work recently, would drop in to share stories of his Afghan childhood or dispense fatherly advice.
"He would tell me stories about how he was raised back home, and how he met his wife, and how he loved his wife," she said.
Yesterday, his co-workers found themselves in the same state of sad confusion as the couple's relatives and neighbours.
"I couldn't believe it; it was devastating," Julee FARIAS said from behind her desk in the service department. "We did love him."

'Ray of sunshine' slain; friend faces murder charge
By Matthew TREVISAN, Page A1
Toronto -- The parents of Karina NEFF knew something was amiss when the family dog, Max, returned home alone Monday after 10 p.m.
Ms. NEFF, who was developmentally delayed, would often walk her Doberman in her neighbourhood near the Collegeway and Mississauga Road, neighbour Brian HENDERSON said yesterday.
"She'd sing and talk to herself," Mr. HENDERSON, 63, said.
So when the Doberman returned alone, Ms. NEFF's family contacted the police.
At about 12: 30 p.m. Tuesday, police searching for the missing 31-year-old discovered her body between two fallen trees off a path in a densely wooded area about one kilometre into Windy Hollow Park, near Erin Mills Parkway and Dundas Street.
Police did not release a cause of death, but said an examination of her body revealed obvious signs of trauma.
Yesterday, police charged Jason OSBORNE, 22, of Mississauga with first-degree murder.
He made a brief court appearance and was remanded into custody.
Homicide Inspector Norm ENGLISH said Mr. OSBORNE and Ms. NEFF had a previous relationship, but would not say anything further.
"They had an on-again, off-again relationship," he said.
Windy Hollow Park has a series of connected pathways that spread out along South Millway and the Collegeway in Mississauga.
On one street near the park yesterday, a Peel police cruiser was parked in a driveway of a home where neighbours said three men in their 20s and 30s lived. Police would not comment.
Nicole HENDRICKS, who lives across the street from the house, said that around 10 p.m. on Monday she saw Ms. NEFF walking toward the park with two of those men and one other man, and that only two men came back.
At the NEFF family home yesterday, Ms. NEFF's cousin Kevin answered the door with tears in his eyes. "Right now there's nothing to say," he said politely.
In a statement released by police, the family described Ms. NEFF as a "loving and caring daughter, sister and friend."
"We are a very close family and find ourselves in a state of shock. …Karina NEFF was a ray of sunshine and saw the good in everyone and everything," the statement said.
On a rainy day in Mississauga, some residents who live near the park carried flowers to the location where she was found.
Alicia THELWELL, 30, said she knew Ms. NEFF from their time at the Applewood School, a Peel Region high school for students with disabilities.
"I didn't think this could happen to her," she said.
"I'm still shaking right now."
Police said they would not speculate about Mr. OSBORNE's mental capacity.
"There's no reason for the public's health or welfare to be in jeopardy here because they knew each other," Peel Police spokesman Wayne PATTERSON said.
"This is an isolated incident."
The death was Peel's 16th homicide this year.
