35 years ago Delia Adriano was dropped off in front of her Oakville home but she never made it inside - Toronto StarThursday, December 14, 2017
Delia Adriano filled an Oakville funeral home last night while others waited outside for up to half an hour to pay their repects. The 26-year-old woman's body was found near Campbelleville six weeks afer she disappeared outside her Oakville home. Nov. 11 1982. (Wilkes, Jim / Toronto Star) The mystery around who killed the Toronto secretary — the second of four sisters and a member of Oakville’s tight-knit Portuguese community — remains a cold case — file 67034-82. But whoever pulled her into a black abyss of evil that night probably knew his victim, say homicide investigators over the years. Delia’s death still haunts her sister Zelia Paul, 56, who lives in Oakville. A wife and mother of two grown children, Paul was 21 years old and living at home when Delia disappeared. “You suddenly become this celebrity that no one wants to be,” said Paul of the publicity that surrounded her family following her sister’s death. Although Paul describes herself as a happy person who has gotten on with her life, she can never forget the injustice done to her sister when Delia’s life was snatched from her. “I was 21 and at a very impressionable time in my life. I became terrified of my own shadow and to this day I look over my shoulder. This person may still be around. You’re never the same.” Burnt in her memory is the day that two detectives arrived on her doorstep on Nov. 7 — a Sunday morning — to tell her that Delia’s body had been identified through dental records. “I wondered, ‘Oh, my God, we’re nobody. We don’t have any money. Why us?’ ” she recalled, knowing that the hardest part — telling her mother — lay ahead of her. An autopsy failed to determine the cause of Delia’s death or whether she had been sexually assaulted. Over the years, police have remained tight-lipped about the results of the autopsy and the possibility of sexual assault, citing it as an ongoing investigation. The front page of the Tues., Sept. 28, 1982 Toronto Star reports that Delia Adriano has vanished from her Oakville home. (toronto star) During the initial investigation, hundreds of people were interviewed and no charges were laid. This included Delia’s fiancé, Danny Dutra, who was investigated several times; police were satisfied that he wasn’t involved. Witnesses provided Halton Regional Police with a description of events occurring at approximately 10:30 p.m. on the Sunday, Sept. 26, 1982, the night Delia went missing. They reported hearing a woman screaming a few block...

Appeal ends, nearly $6000 raised - Sault StarThursday, April 12, 2018
Hunter Chamberlain and their son, Bentley, died last Tuesday. Their SUV, northbound on Highway 69 near Parry Sound, crossed the centre line and collided with a transport. The SUV caught fire. Ontario Provincial Police have not released the names of the deceased pending identification by Ontario Centre of Forensic Sciences. Whitehead's best friend, Rebecca Chapman, launched a GoFundMe appeal (https://www.gofundme.com/help-support-jodey-whitehead) on Friday to help Victoria's mother, Jodey Whitehead, pay for funeral costs. Her goal was $2,000. That target was exceeded by more than 50 per cent within 24 hours with $3,186 donated by 66 contributors by 10 a.m Saturday. By Sunday afternoon, the tally grew to $5,980 from 136 donors. In an update, Chapman thanked donors and said the appeal was finished. “As per request by the family, I will be closing donations and taking the funds to them,” she said. “They decided that this is an overwhelming, but very appreciated amount of support, and that they would like me to close the fund as we have reached nearly $6,000.”Many donors offered their condolences about the trio's death. “My heart goes out to anyone impacted by this tragedy,” said Danielle Heatley. “I can't imagine the pain of losing a child and grandchild,” said MaryClaire Wood in a post. “I pray you find the strength to deal with this terrible loss.“Thanks to everyone for their generosity,” said Jonathan White...
'They lost their goalie': Don Mills Flyers pay tribute to murder victim Roy Pejcinovski in emotional return to the ice - Toronto StarThursday, April 12, 2018
Flyers and Marlboros. (Vince Talotta / Toronto Star)Pejcinovski was a promising prospect in next year’s Ontario Hockey League draft. “We remember him as a teammate and friend,” West said, urging the boys to “sit together, support each other, and keep playing the game.” And they did, but with a twist. The two teams tossed their sticks into pile at centre ice — with no discernible divide between Flyers and Marlboros. Players picked sticks at random, shuffling them like a deck of cards into two new teams.They then peeled their rival jerseys and put on new ones, black or white with a capital “R,” for Roy, in burgundy. The colour in the boys’ socks — orange and black for the Flye...

— City of Brockville (@BrockvilleON) April 9, 2018Organizations across Ontario were paying tribute to the victims of last week’s fatal bus crash.The bus carrying the junior hockey team to a playoff game collided with a semi truck in northeast Saskatchewan on Friday, killing 15 people and leaving 14 others injured.The fatalities included 10 young teammates, ranging in age from 15 to 21, and five team personnel. Like many people across the country, the Wilsons placed a hockey stick on their porch in what has become a universal tribute to the lost players.The book of condolences is the product of city staff’s collaboration with Brockville’s Irvine Funeral Home.The tragedy also hit close to home for Mike Galbraith, a funeral director at Irvine who helped coordinate the book of condolences.“As a hockey dad, as a parent, as a funeral director, I can appreciate the chaos that’s going on,” he said.“Sometimes, people need an outlet.”Signing a book of condolences is a small way of confronting the powerlessness one feels in the wake of such a tragedy, said Galbraith.“This one’s kind of near and dear to the heart,” he added.“If I had the means and the time, I would fly out there today on a plane and help them out.”The Brockville Braves plan on contributing one dollar from every ticket sold to Tuesday’s Game at the Memorial Centre to a crowdsourcing fund for the victims. Galbraith said another version of the book of condolences will be set up at the arena ahead of that game.“It will all be added to one and sent off at the end of the week,” he added.Some 30 people had signed the city hall book as of mid-afternoon Monday, as word of the tribute began slowly to spread.Some of the people signing came from out of town, including Prescott, Mallorytown, Delta and Kingston.All of the local signatures and messages will be conveyed to Humboldt city hall.Elsewhere locally, organizers of the Brockville Winter Classic Weekend used their Facebook account to post tributes to the Broncos and a link to the crowdsourcing page.Brockville Mayor David Henderson said the scope of the tragedy extends beyond the world of hockey.“I think it wa...
