BUCHNER, Dorothy
In loving memory of a dear wife, mother and grandmother Dorothy, who passed away five years ago today, March 29, 2001.
We cannot lose the ones we love,
For even when they're gone,
We feel their gentle presence,
In the hush of every dawn,
We see them in the sunlight,
That makes the day so bright,
In the flowers of springtime,
And in the stars at night,
The heart is like a treasure chest,
That's filled with souvenirs,
It's there to keep the memories,
We gathered through the years,
We cannot lose the ones we love,
For they will always stay,
In all that's bright and beautiful,
Around us everyday.
Always there, always remembered by husband Bill, family and Friends.

Love triangle suspected in double-slaying, suicide
Police theorize Swiss man may have found his girlfriend with German
By Timothy APPLEBY with reports from Omar EL AKKAD and Naomi BUCK, Page A13
Three European tourists found stabbed to death early Monday at an expensive downtown Toronto hotel were slain in a double murder-suicide, police confirmed yesterday, and likely perished in a deadly love triangle.
Killed were Swiss nationals Nadja WYRSCH, 24, and Andre ASCHWANDEN, 35, along with German-born Thomas KAUFMANN, 35, who also lived in Switzerland.
Police believe Mr. ASCHWANDEN killed Ms. WYRSCH, his girlfriend, and Mr. KAUFMANN and then turned his knife on himself.
Ms. WYRSCH was a biologist specializing in cytology, the study of cells, while Mr. ASCHWANDEN is believed to have been a salesman for a fuel-injection company. Both were residents of Lucerne, in central Switzerland, where German is the predominant language.
Ms. WYRSCH would have turned 25 yesterday.
Their friend, Mr. KAUFMANN, lived near Bern, the Swiss capital, where he worked at the University of Bern's veterinary clinic.
Together, the three flew to Toronto from Zurich on Sunday afternoon and were part of a tour group of about 24 people -- mostly Germans but also including some Swiss and French -- that was to tour Canada for three weeks, visiting several large cities.
Ms. WYRSCH and Mr. ASCHWANDEN knew Mr. KAUFMANN, police believe, which would explain why they agreed to share a room on the 19th floor of the Delta Chelsea on downtown Gerrard Street, Canada's largest hotel.
"We believe they all knew each other reasonably well," said Detective Dan NIELSEN of the Toronto homicide squad.
As well, each of them appeared to have a hearing disability.
"The information we have is that at least two of them were hearing impaired, and possibly all three," Det. NIELSEN said. "We're trying to verify that."
Ms. WYRSCH, who was on the board of LKH Switzerland, an association for the deaf, was killed by stab wounds to the chest and a slash to the neck, inflicted by a multibladed, Swiss army-type knife that was found in the blood-soaked hotel room.
The same weapon was used to kill Mr. KAUFMANN and Mr. ASCHWANDEN, both of whom died from stab wounds to the chest.
With no signs of forced entry to the room and no evidence of robbery, the working theory of investigators is that the violence stemmed from anger or jealousy.
Police believe Mr. ASCHWANDEN may have unexpectedly discovered his girlfriend and Mr. KAUFMANN in the room together and that he flew into a murderous rage.
Other guests on the 19th floor reported hearing loud arguing and the sound of running.
A hotel security guard making his rounds shortly before 4: 30 a.m. discovered Mr. KAUFMANN on the floor of the corridor near one of the elevators, reportedly clad only in a pair of boxer shorts, after apparently fleeing the murder scene. He was taken to nearby Saint Michael's Hospital, where he died shortly afterward.
A trail of blood led down the hallway to room 1908, where Ms. WYRSCH's body was found on the floor. That of Mr. ASCHWANDEN was lying on one of the beds. Police described the scene as horrific.
No other suspects are being sought and Det. NIELSEN said he expects the investigation to wrap up soon.
"We're still processing the [crime] scene and a few more witnesses, but we're getting pretty close."
The three visitors were on a tour organized through the company Jonview Canada, owned and operated by Transat A.T. Inc. of Montreal.
The double murder pushed Toronto's homicide total so far this year to 46.
A Swiss relative of Ms. WYRSCH, a farmer who said he had known her since childhood and described her as "a good person," said she knew several members of the tour group.
"She worked hard, she deserved the holiday. She didn't go on holiday often…. It was a normal group tour."

Details emerge about 401 deaths
By Hayley MICK and Omar EL AKKAD, Page A16
The family of a woman who clutched her toddler and leaped from an overpass onto Highway 401 was rocked yesterday by the news of their deaths, homicide investigators say.
Almost 24 hours after Andrea JOHNSON and her son, Sulla GENUA, died just west of the Toronto Zoo, family members were still hearing the terrible news from Toronto police investigators.
Sulla's father was among those investigators spoke with yesterday.
"He's obviously upset," said Detective Mike BARSKY of the Toronto police homicide squad. "This is a tragedy."
The detective refused to comment on the nature of the relationship between Ms. JOHNSON and the boy's father, who was not identified.
For most of yesterday, the identities of Ms. JOHNSON, 30, and Sulla, 2, had remained a mystery to police: the woman had not been carrying identification when she jumped just after 7 p.m. Sunday, and no Friends or relatives had reported the pair missing.
Police also revealed more details about what happened Sunday evening on the Morningside Avenue overpass, where bloodied concrete and a small a bouquet of red flowers -- tied to a railing by an anonymous person -- were the only signs early yesterday that a tragedy had occurred there hours earlier.
Toronto Transit Commission bus drivers helped police piece together the final part of the woman's trip to the bridge over the highway. She and the toddler boarded the bus -- Route 116 on Morningside Avenue -- at Sheppard Avenue after transferring from another bus, police said.
Just before 7, she and the boy disembarked at the corner of Morningside and Midland Avenues. After big-box stores gave way to a grassy buffer littered with Slurpee straws and pop cans, she reached a bridge spanning 16 lanes of Highway 401.
According to police, Ms. JOHNSON climbed over a railing and stood for a moment on a small, half-moon-shaped ledge, which juts over traffic pouring west at more than 100 kilometres an hour.
witnesses: said she was holding the boy, said Detective Sergeant Chris BUCK of the Toronto police homicide squad.
At about 7: 10, several motorists on the overpass noticed the unfolding scene and dialled 911, he said. A few parked their vehicles, leaped out and moved quickly toward the woman, he said. One man spoke to her. "It was a short conversation," Det. Sgt. BUCK said. She appeared calm, he said.
Before anyone could reach her, the woman leaped, he said.
Police said both were hit by more than one vehicle. Bloody marks stretched some 30 metres along the pavement, suggesting one or more people had been dragged. Police said Ms. JOHNSON died on the highway; Sulla was pronounced dead at Sunnybrook Hospital.
An autopsy yesterday found Ms. JOHNSON died of multiple trauma Sulla, who stood three feet tall, died of blunt-impact head trauma.

A devoted mother's tragic decision
By Omar EL AKKAD and Hayley MICK, Page A1
Toronto -- By all accounts, Andrea JOHNSON was the perfect mother right up to the moment she killed herself and her two-year-old son.
Family and Friends described 30-year-old Ms. JOHNSON as an incredibly dedicated mother yesterday, two days after she wrapped her arms around her child, Sulla GENUA, and leaped off an overpass onto the 401.
Daniel JOHNSON described his daughter as "the greatest" mother, totally devoted to Sulla.
"There was a bond between them," Mr. JOHNSON said from his home in Brampton. "You'd never see one without the other."
But those who knew her also spoke of a woman under enormous pressure, and who often suffered bouts of depression. "She'd been very depressed for a while, on and off," Linette BATTICKS, Ms. JOHNSON's mother, said yesterday.
Weeping, she taped a photo of Ms. JOHNSON to the railing on Morningside Avenue bridge where the lives of her daughter and Sulla came to an end. Since Sunday night, a small shrine has grown at the spot.
Amid flower bouquets and a dozen stuffed animals, a child had penned a note attached to a teddy bear that read: "This lady must have believed that there was no future for her and her son. I wish she would have asked for help."
Ms. JOHNSON moved out of a women's shelter in the east end of the city about seven months ago. Against all odds, she succeeded in securing a $700-a-month, one-bedroom apartment on Eglinton Avenue West above a clothing boutique. At the time, K.D. SINGH, the landlord and owner of the boutique, had five potential tenants. Ms. JOHNSON was the only one without a job -- her references were three relatives and a social worker from the women's shelter.
Figuring Ms. JOHNSON needed the apartment more than any of the other applicants, Mr. SINGH picked her. For the next six months, he says, she always paid her rent on the first or second day of the month.
"She was very proud, very self-respecting. She lived within her means," he said. "I see some people, they come [to the clothing store] and they say, 'I want this and I want this.' Not her."
Her neighbours also came to know how proud she was. Whenever any of them offered to help carry Sulla's stroller up the stairs, she politely declined. Mr. SINGH said that every once in a while, "a white man," possibly the boy's father, would come by to pick up Sulla.
Ms. JOHNSON's life revolved around her toddler. Most days, she took him to a nearby park, then a library.
She had a degree in political science from the University of Ottawa, according to an uncle identified only as Harold. But she didn't have a job. Indeed, Mr. SINGH says, she didn't seem like she wanted one. He says he offered once to help her find work, but she said her entire day was spent taking care of Sulla. Besides, she added, if she did get a job, daycare costs would eat up everything she made.
The attention seemed to have paid off -- relatives described Sulla as a very intelligent child, fluent in English and French, like his mother.
"She really took care of that kid," Mr. SINGH said. "Everything was around that kid."
Her father agreed, adding: "Andrea was the greatest. I love her dearly." But asked why she might have committed suicide, Mr. JOHNSON said he had no answers. He said he spoke to his daughter recently she said she felt "okay."
"I'm not sure we'll know why she did what she did. We're just searching for answers right now," he said.
Homicide detectives continue to investigate what they have classified as a murder-suicide. Detective Sergeant Chris BUCK refused to comment on any details. "It's a tragic situation and I'm not going to embellish on the personal lives of anyone involved in it," he said.
Sulla's father and his relatives have kept their feelings private. "We're not going to say anything right now," a male relative said yesterday.
It appears no one foresaw what Ms. JOHNSON planned to do Sunday. Police pleaded with the public for almost a day before any relatives came forward. Ms. JOHNSON was not carrying any identification when she jumped off the Morningside overpass, making it that much more difficult to find relatives.
Mr. SINGH last saw Ms. JOHNSON on Saturday. She had come to tell him she would be a bit late with the rent this month. Maybe next Saturday or Sunday, she told him. He says he didn't mind.
As was the case almost every time he met her, Ms. JOHNSON seemed fine, Mr. SINGH said. She was her usual self, full of confidence. Had he seen any signs she was planning to do what she did the next day, he would have called police, he said.
But having watched her struggle to take care of her son over the past seven months, Mr. SINGH says he knew Ms. JOHNSON's life was by no means easy.
"She had the whole pressure of the world on her, and she never showed it," he said. "She never complained."

Mother ignored pleas before plunge
Family struggles to understand why woman jumped off bridge with her son
By Michele HENRY, Staff Reporter
One wilted bouquet of flowers, a few plastic poinsettias and a teddy bear fastened to the guardrail of a 401 overpass are the only visible reminders of how a mother plunged to her death this weekend, along with her preschool-aged son.
Andrea JOHNSON, 30, jumped off the Morningside Ave. bridge with her 2-year-old son Sulla GENUA on Sunday evening.
The two plummeted 30 metres onto the busy westbound collector lanes of Highway 401 below in the city's east end.
Relatives learned of the tragic situation late yesterday afternoon.
"We only found out a couple of hours ago," said a cousin of GENUA's father, who did not want to be named.
"There's a lot of sorrow. We're very frustrated and upset."
JOHNSON was undeterred by motorists who stopped their cars on the side of the road to try to help. Despite their pleas, she flung herself and her son off the bridge. Both were struck by cars speeding along the highway, near the Toronto Zoo, at about 7: 15 p.m.
A post-mortem examination conducted yesterday concluded that JOHNSON died as a result of multiple trauma, while her son was killed by blunt-impact head trauma.
Speculation swirled as to whether the pair was from out of the province, and why the mother had taken her own life and that of her child.
Psychiatric experts say it's likely JOHNSON suffered severe depression and speculated that a psychotic episode pushed her to this "highly lethal" act.
"I'd be concerned about a psychotic depression, where judgment and connection to reality are impaired," said Doctor Jodi LOFCHY, an associate professor of psychiatry at the University of Toronto and chair of psychiatric emergency services at the University Health Network.
"Someone has to be very ill for this to occur."
LOFCHY explained that in such cases, the woman tends to believe she is "saving herself and the boy from a fate worse than death." Things seem to be so bad that she sees no alternative but to end it all, LOFCHY said.
Dr. Mark BERBER, a lecturer in psychiatry at U of T, explained that such decisions are usually impulsive.
"Very often, something may have happened recently in their personal life to tip the balance," he said. "And the woman sees no future for her or her child."
A woman who experiences such an episode may believe she must take the child's life as well because there is no one else to care for him, said suicide expert Paul Links. "That's a sign of a significant mental health problem."
It's not likely the added stress of the oncoming holiday season had anything to do with it, the experts said.
Suicide rates tend to rise after the Christmas season, not before.
Investigators are still trying to piece together what happened before JOHNSON, who was found without shoes, climbed over the guardrail with her son. Officers said she made it to the overpass on a southbound bus, with a transfer from the Sheppard Ave. subway station.
With her hair in dreadlocks and wearing stockings, a three-quarter-length coat, a ribbed sweater and a Gap jacket, JOHNSON walked from a nearby bus stop to the guardrail.
Several motorists who saw her walking suspiciously close to the railing called 911. A few stopped their cars on the side of the road when she crossed over the metal barrier with the child.
Police say a male motorist who had pulled over called to JOHNSON, who was described as acting calmly at the time, as he walked toward her.
"She was very close to the edge," Toronto police Sgt. Chris BUCK said, and jumped before the man could get near her. The mother died at the scene and the boy was pronounced dead in hospital.
Officers interviewed 10 to 12 witnesses: and kept the highway closed for several hours as the Ontario Provincial Police reconstructed the incident at the scene.
"It was pretty traumatic," BUCK said, noting that witnesses: received counselling from Victim Services at police headquarters. "But it's a credit to the people of Toronto that this situation can be noticed and they do something about it."
