Peel, Durham slayings probed
Beaten Brampton man dies of injuries
In Oshawa, victim collapses near condo
By Gail SWAINSON and Amanda-Marie QUINTINO, Staff Reporters
A Brampton man found beaten with a serious head injury two weeks ago has died, becoming Peel Region's third homicide of the year.
And residents of an Oshawa neighbourhood were left asking questions about the safety of their community yesterday after a 31-year-old man was found dead Sunday, Durham Region's fourth homicide of Alan MOHABIR, who was found beaten June 15 in the area of Denlow Dr. and Verity Ct. in Brampton, remained on life support until he died at Saint Michael's Hospital on Thursday, Peel Region police said yesterday.
Homicide investigators are attempting to piece together the 20-year-old victim's last hours, but a paucity of information has left police appealing to the public for help.
"It seems like there was some sort of altercation that took place, but we are still trying to find out what exactly happened," said Const. Jennifer BRYER.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Peel homicide bureau, 905-453-3311, ext. 3205, or Peel Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
In Oshawa, the yellow police tape that surrounded the Centre St. S. crime scene where the region's latest homicide victim collapsed Sunday has left local residents worrying that the area has gone downhill.
"Eight, nine years ago, I was able to walk along the path alone late at night, but not anymore," said long-time resident Mike BROWN.
Durham police say emergency crews were called to a condominium building about 9 p.m. Sunday to investigate reports that a man had collapsed.
Sgt. Paul McCURBIN said the fatally injured man was found on a grassy boulevard at the corner of Mill and Centre Sts.
Homicide investigators say evidence found at the scene indicates he was killed on a paved pathway on the west side of Oshawa Creek running north from Mill St.
The spot is just behind the low-rise condo at the corner of Centre and Mill Sts. and within Storie Park.
"He was found with vital signs absent after receiving some type of sharp force trauma to his body," McCurbin said.
The man was rushed to Lakeridge Health Centre in Oshawa, where he was pronounced dead. Police are withholding his name until next of kin can be notified. An autopsy is scheduled for today.
The area has a mix of new and older homes and low-rise buildings. It is near the Motion Nightclub, where a 22-year-old woman was shot while dancing last February.
The woman didn't realize she had been shot until the next day, when an X-ray in hospital revealed a bullet lodged in her chest.

If I could make a wish today and keep it for a while I'd want to hold your hand once more I'd want to make you smile If I could turn back time again I'd give you back your life I'd make each day a happy one I'd make it free of strife I'd fill the air with scents of clover and put blossoms on the trees I'd bathe your face with sunshine and caress you with a breeze I'd say things I should have said each and every day I'd listen more intensively to what you had to say If I could put in words the thoughts I have inside I'd fill each page with laughter, a tear or two, and pride If I could capture your beauty, a picture wouldn't do I'd gather all the rainbows and let the sun shine through I'd make the violins play soft the angels would sing sweet I'd add some fragrant roses to make it all complete If I could do these things for you, to show you how much I care I wouldn't have to do anything… because you'd already be there
The family wishes to express its sincere gratitude to the staff and volunteers of the Palliative Units of the York Central and Etobicoke General Hospitals. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Etobicoke General or York Central Hospital would be appreciated. Service and burial to be private. Celebration of Dodie's life will be noted at another date.
