Man, 74, slain in daylight attack
By Canadian Press, Tues., December 18, 2007
Kitchener -- The brazen daylight slaying of a 74-year-old man as he delivered Christmas cards was committed with an "edged weapon," police said yesterday as neighbours paid tribute to a man they called a friendly, peace-loving victim of a brutal and senseless crime.
Police were searching for a man they say attacked Hunter BROWN just steps from his home Saturday before fleeing the scene on foot, leaving his victim to die in a neighbour's driveway, a pile of undelivered Christmas cards on the ground next to him.
"The fact that this kind of assault happens in any community, and in my community now, disturbs me very greatly," Mayor Carl ZEHR said yesterday in an interview.
"It's tragic, it's brutal, senseless and unfathomable, but it did happen."
ZEHR, who knew BROWN from service-club activities, described him as a "quiet, community-minded" man. Kitchener police Insp. Bryan LARKIN called him the "ultimate neighbourhood friendly fellow."
BROWN was found bleeding and unconscious. Doctors pronounced him dead in hospital.
witnesses: said a man in his 20s fled the neighbourhood on foot, clad in a black tuque and long black coat.
Police called the unprovoked attack a "tragic story."
"It was a vicious assault," police spokesperson Olaf HEINZEL said. "It's very disturbing for our community."
Cruisers were blocking the street and a ribbon of police tape surrounded the homes of BROWN and his neighbours as detectives continued to canvass houses and businesses in the hopes of turning up clues to the killer's identity.
"It's still a big mystery," said neighbour Matthew ENGELMANN, 24, who arrived home Saturday to find the area swarming with police.
"People are angry. I would not call people scared. Everybody wants to know what happened and why."
ENGELMANN said he considered it highly unlikely that it was a personally motivated attack on BROWN, whom he called a "great person."
The victim and his wife, Beverly, had lived in their two-storey home for more than 30 years.

Neighbours mourn 'super-friendly guy'
While out delivering Christmas cards, Hunter BROWN, 74, was killed in apparent random attack, leaving his Friends and family in shock
By Caroline ALPHONSO, Page A3
Kitchener, Ontario -- Hunter BROWN, 74, set out on a cold Saturday afternoon, all bundled up, on what had become his annual Christmas ritual of hand-delivering cards to his neighbours. Recipients would often discover a picture of his three grandchildren tucked inside their cards.
The affluent neighbourhood in Kitchener has a mix of young families and elderly couples who have lived there for decades. Christmas decorations were strung along front porches and spilled onto the front yards.
This year, however, Mr. BROWN didn't get very far in his Christmas-card delivery. He had just started to make his first drop-off when a man struck him with an "edged weapon" and left him to die in the next-door neighbour's driveway, police say. A pile of undelivered cards was found on the ground next to him. Doctors pronounced Mr. BROWN dead in hospital.
Police say the attack was unprovoked and are looking for a man in his 20s who fled the quiet neighbourhood on foot wearing a long black trench coat and a black tuque with red lines.
"It's a difficult case," said Staff Sergeant Adrian DARMON of the Waterloo Regional Police. "This is quite a close community."
Yellow tape surrounded the BROWN home and neighbouring houses yesterday as police scoured the area for clues.
Mr. BROWN and his wife, Beverley, lived in their two-storey home for more than 30 years. A Christmas tree was lit up in the front window last night. The killing of Mr. BROWN, a father of two, has shocked family and neighbours.
Mr. BROWN, a retired regional manager for Bell, was described as a man who loved his grandchildren, and rarely missed a hockey or football practice, or a musical recital. He spent his summers at the family cottage in Muskoka, and had often invited neighbours to vacation there.
He and his wife would have celebrated their 50th anniversary in March. The couple had just started taking lessons in ballroom dancing.
"Mom and Dad did everything together," Mr. BROWN's son, Mike, said yesterday. "He was elderly but in good health. We never expected Hunter BROWN to die this way. He was a nice man."
His sister, Sandra, added: "He was a gentle man. He just had so much left."
Neighbour Lois HOGG remembers Mr. BROWN singing Christmas carols at her home on December 8 when she and her husband invited the neighbourhood over for a holiday celebration.
"It was a happy experience and we were so glad they were here," Ms. HOGG said.
Matthew ENGELMANN, 24, who lives next door to the BROWNs, said his kitchen counter was filled yesterday with food dropped off by neighbours for the victim's family. Mr. ENGELMANN saw Mr. BROWN as a grandfather. He and his family would spend a few days at the BROWN cottage almost every summer.
"He was just a super-friendly guy. You couldn't leave your house and have Hunter see you and not say 'hello' or 'hi,' " he said.
The ENGELMANN family has known Mr. BROWN and his wife for 27 years. Mr. ENGELMANN's father, Dieter, said he was still in disbelief over what happened. Neighbours came out when they saw police cruisers and an ambulance.
"It's such a sad situation. Nothing warrants this. Nothing at all," he said. "This guy wouldn't hurt a fly."
Police said yesterday autopsy results weren't complete as yet, but they believe a weapon with some of kind of sharp edge was used in the attack.
Neighbours say it was unlikely that the attack was personally motivated.
Mark MEDENSKY, who took care of the BROWN home when the family went on vacation, said many on the street are looking for answers.
"He was sweet, quiet. He always had something nice to say about you. Everyone is just in shock. I'm angry about what happened."

Tiny, feisty woman big on independence
By Glynnis MAPP, Sun Media, Sun., July 1, 2007
When Amy Elizabeth GRIEVE was born, doctors said she wouldn't make it to her first birthday because of a "funny heart."
GRIEVE proved them all wrong.
Born in 1906 in Tyendinaga Township near Belleville, she lived through the sinking of the Titanic, two World Wars, the Great Depression and Canada's Centennial.
GRIEVE died on June 20 at the Dearness Home. She was 101.
Her family believes GRIEVE's secret to her agility -- she walked nearly five kilometres a day in her 80s -- and long life was in her diet.
GRIEVE didn't smoke or eat junk food and rarely drank alcohol. Fruits and vegetables were the mainstays of her diet. On special occasions, she would allow herself a small glass of rye and ginger ale.
"That was her one treat for herself. She always made sure to eat three good meals every day and was very active mentally and physically," said her daughter Sharon ZEISNER.
Standing four-foot-11, GRIEVE may have been small in stature, but she was larger than life, relatives say.
GRIEVE was known for her gourmet cooking, a hobby she thoroughly enjoyed. Up until she was in her 80s, she cooked a roast for herself every Sunday and froze the leftovers.
"She was bright, vivacious and fiercely independent. She was just a wonderful woman and a joy to be around," said her daughter Shirleyan ENGLISH.
GRIEVE trained in North Bay to become a teacher and went on to work at schools in northern Ontario.
One of the schools was in Tomiko, a railway stop on the line between North Bay and Cobalt.
Elliott GRIEVE, who worked as a telegrapher at the train station, immediately became enamoured with the "feisty" and self-sufficient new teacher in town.
"My dad was only five-(foot)-three so they were perfect for each other. He spotted her right away," ZEISNER said. "When my mom stepped off of the train, (one of his co-workers) said to my dad, 'That's the woman for you.' "
The couple married in 1934.
ENGLISH remembers living in a house filled with love and her parents "making suggestions instead of arguing."
In 1956, GRIEVE's husband died and she was left to figure out how to support her three young daughters and make ends meet on her teacher's salary.
To make additional income, GRIEVE invested in real estate, buying and selling small properties for profit.
"In that day, not a lot of women were investing in real estate," ENGLISH said. "She was very clever. She would sell the houses and sometimes rent them out. She could calculate monthly mortgage payments in her head."
Even as she aged, family said GRIEVE was "sharp as a tack," remembering family birthdays, phone numbers of her children, eight grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren.
In 1991, GRIEVE moved from her home in Haliburton County to London to be closer to her three daughters.
ENGLISH said the opinionated family scion would frequently give seasoned advice on family academic pursuits, careers and relationships.
"She was very astute and a really strong woman and led by example," ENGLISH said.
"She showed us we could be ourselves and be independent women, in or out of a marriage. We could do whatever we wanted to do in life."

Daughter strangled
Friends say Aqsa PARVEZ clashed with her strict family.
By Rob LAMBERTI, Sun Media, Wed., December 12, 2007
Mississauga -- Muhammad PARVEZ appears in court this morning charged with strangling his daughter as homicide detectives continue to look at her older brother to determine if he had a role in the slaying.
The 57-year-old man was charged yesterday with killing 16-year-old Aqsa PARVEZ, who Friends say rebelled against her father's religious expectations. Aqsa died in the Hospital for Sick Children late Monday and her mother arranged for her daughter's organs be donated.
Peel detectives charged her brother, Waqas, 26, with obstructing police, allegedly for trying to mislead officers during their investigation.
But police said Waqas continues to be investigated by homicide detectives to determine if he's involved in Peel's 16th murder of the year.
"We're now trying to determine what role or culpability he may have had in the homicide as well," Peel police homicide Insp. Norm ENGLISH said. "We're certainly going to be conducting further investigations to determine if he had a role in this."
ENGLISH said the investigation is still early and whether Muhammad is charged with first- or second-degree murder depends on witness information and the results of a pending autopsy. Investigators suspect the Grade 11 Applewood Heights secondary school student was strangled.
Police were alerted to the incident when a man called police just before 8 a.m. Monday saying he had killed his daughter at their Longhorn Trail home.
Most students learned during the school's morning announcement yesterday that Aqsa, who was born in Pakistan, had died.
A memorial with her photo and a book of condolences was in the front lobby of the high school for classmates to jot down memories or poems.
"It's just, like, really sad. Everyone was just crying," said Grade 10 student Natalie RANCE.
Students and Friends said Aqsa began removing her hijab when she attended school this term after her older sister had graduated. With no one to watch over her, she apparently felt free to dress more casually.
Aqsa recently left the family home and moved in with a friend, said Krista GARBUTT. She said the victim was quite open with Friends about discussing the culture clash she was having with her father, but it appears no one in authority was aware.
"I don't think so; she didn't tell a teacher," Dominiquia HOLMES- THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON said yesterday.
Students were sent home with letters for their parents informing them of Aqsa's death and an outline of symptoms for depression or stress that their kids may feel. It assured parents that counsellors are available.
HOLMES- THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON described Aqsa as a kind person who loved to take photos and to dance. "And all she wanted to do is to be herself."
She said Aqsa was at a friend's place after leaving her home around 8 p.m. Sunday.
"She was happy, she was ready to go to school, she was excited," HOLMES- THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON said, adding Aqsa intended on returning to the family home to get clothes.
But HOLMES- THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON said Aqsa told her she was "scared to go home."
"Because she didn't obey the rules…" she said.
HOLMES- THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON said her friend would arrive at school wearing jogging pants and hijab and then change clothes, removing the traditional headscarf.
Friend Ashley GARBUTT, 16, said that Aqsa didn't want to wear the hijab any more.
"Then her sister kept telling her dad that she doesn't wear it," she said. "She left her house twice. She left and went to her friend's house because… she would get scared and she just didn't want to live there anymore. She wanted to be her own person and show her inner beauty."
GARBUTT said Aqsa went to a shelter and her father contacted her asking her to come home because neither he nor her mother could eat after she left the first time.
"She moved home because she felt bad, but she moved out again," she said.
Friends said there probably are other girls who find themselves in a similar situation.
"They should get help soon as possible, whether it's a counsellor," Ebonie MITCHELL said. "Because we never knew it was that bad. If they're in that situation, they should get help as soon as possible."

Housekeeper's death at Mississauga mansion treated as foul play
By Omar EL AKKAD and Jessica RAFUSE, Page A15
The death of Jocelyn DULNUAN, a Filipino-born, 27-year-old housekeeper found inside a multimillion-dollar mansion on Monday, is likely the result of foul play, Peel Regional Police say.
That sums up just about everything homicide detectives are willing to say.
"The location was targeted for a specific reason that I am not prepared to comment on today," Inspector Norm ENGLISH, head of the homicide bureau, said yesterday at a terse news conference.
"I do believe, though, that there was property taken from the residence, however this needs to be determined after doing a proper walk through with the homeowners," he said.
Ms. DULNUAN came to Canada last year on a work visa and worked as a nanny in various locations across the Greater Toronto Area before moving into the massive Mississauga home as a housekeeper, Insp. ENGLISH said.
Both Ms. DULNUAN and the home - estimated to be worth more than $10-million - may have been targets, he said, adding that Ms. DULNUAN's mother, who lives in Hong Kong, has been notified of her daughter's death.
But as to what condition Ms. DULNUAN's body was in, the cause of her death, what items were taken from the home and a host of other questions, Insp. ENGLISH would only reply: "I'm not prepared to discuss that."
Peel police spokesman Constable Adam MINNION said homicide detectives can sometimes choose to withhold information so as to not compromise an investigation. "If [homicide detectives are] reluctant to provide information, they must have their reasons," Constable MINNION said. "Every situation's different. There must be something they've seen there."
Police received a 911 call around 5 p.m. on Monday from one of the homeowners inside the home. The homeowners, Vasdev (Dave) CHANCHLANI and his wife Jayshree, were not home at the time of the incident, Constable MINNION said.
Police have not yet publicly named any suspects.
At several Toronto churches with strong Filipino followings, no one recognized Ms. DULNUAN by name or photo yesterday.
She was also not registered with Intercede, a group that advocates for the rights of domestic workers and caregivers.
"We've been getting calls all day," said counsellor Columbia DIAZ, who is hoping to use the agency's contacts to get in touch with Ms. DULNUAN's Friends. "A lot of Filipina maids are worried and want to know more, but there's not much that we know."
Ms. DIAZ said many caregivers and domestic workers prefer to work in populated areas instead of secluded homes with limited contact with the outside community.
Jo ACUNA, owner of Brampton-based Sunrise Placement Services, said live-in nannies tend to apply for a work permit under the federal live-in caregiver program.
The program stipulates that such employees must work in a private home and be provided a private, furnished room within that home.
Ms. ACUNA said the largest portion of such workers arrive from the Philippines, usually after first working in Hong Kong.
A representative from the Philippines consulate in Toronto said the consulate has been in contact with Ms. DULNUAN's mother, who is trying to arrange the transportation of her daughter's body back home.

Man shot in Mississauga apartment
By Bob MITCHELL, Staff Reporter
At least one gunman is being sought in connection with the slaying of a 34-year-old man on Wednesday night in a Mississauga apartment.
Otis JOHNSON died early yesterday morning at Trillium Health Centre. An autopsy is scheduled for today, but Peel police have confirmed the Mississauga man was shot.
"His death is drug-related," Peel homicide Insp. Norm ENGLISH said. He said JOHNSON was "well-known" to police but wouldn't reveal the reasons, and added that the victim wasn't wanted for anything at the time of his death.
"I have a pretty good idea of what happened," ENGLISH said.
The homicide was Peel Region's first of the year.
Police won't confirm where JOHNSON was shot on his body, although people who saw him being treated by paramedics in the lobby of the apartment building said he had been shot in the lower back.
Emergency crews found JOHNSON lying just inside the front entrance of the 12-storey building, located on the southeast corner of the Queensway and Hurontario St.
Residents said the shooting occurred inside a 12th-floor apartment. ENGLISH confirmed JOHNSON was shot inside a unit in the building, but investigators were still piecing together how he managed to get to the building's lobby.
"We're still interviewing a number of people, including people from the apartment where the shooting occurred," ENGLISH said.
Police wouldn't confirm how many people were being sought or a report that the person who lived in the unit where the shooting occurred had just returned from a vacation.
Numerous officers spent Wednesday night and yesterday morning canvassing the more than 300 apartments in the building, known as the Queensway Arms, which is almost directly across the street from the hospital.
Investigators also refused to confirm a report that a gunman was seen fleeing the apartment by climbing into another unit from the balcony.
Paramedics and police rushed to the apartment just before 9: 30 p.m. on Wednesday after receiving a 911 call that a man had been shot.
Only moments earlier, another 911 call reported a break and enter in the apartment, police sources said.
