'Kings of hearts' killed in crash
By Isabel TEOTONIO, Henry STANCU, Joanna SMITH, Staff reporters
They were known as the "kings of hearts," three Friends who were inseparable.
But on Saturday that came to a deadly end when the van they were in on Major Mackenzie Doctor in Vaughan unaccountably drifted into a lane of oncoming traffic and hit a car being driven by an off-duty York Region police officer.
Waleed SHAUKAT, 17, and his friend Sulman YUSAF, 19, were killed, along with the police officer, Davis AHLOWALIA, 28. The third teen, identified as Mohammed MATTU, 19, was in a coma last night.
It was a devastating end for what was supposed to be a fun night out celebrating a friend's birthday, said relatives of SHAUKAT, one of the teens pronounced dead on the scene.
"All three of these guys were kings -- kings of hearts -- they always had a smile and they all made people happy," said Waleed's older brother Omar SHAUKAT at the family home in Maple last night.
He described his younger brother as a happy teenager. "He had his whole life ahead of him, he was hard-working, helped out at home and everyone in this area knew him and loved him."
Waleed's father, Ali SHAUKAT, last saw his son Friday afternoon. The teen had just cashed his cheque from Tim Hortons and showed up at home with $420 in cash.
As was customary, the teen handed over all of his money to his mother and said, "Don't worry, mom, I'm young and I'll take care of you," recalled the father. Then he asked his father for $5 so that his wallet wouldn't be empty when he went out with Friends that night.
But the fun night out ground to a deadly halt around 3: 30 a.m. on Major Mackenzie Dr., west of Pine Valley Dr., when a minivan carrying the teens crashed head-on into a Honda Civic driven by AHLOWALIA.
Both cars burst into flames. SHAUKAT and YUSAF were pronounced dead at the scene. Their friend, Mattu, was rushed to hospital and was in a coma last night. Also dead at the scene was AHLOWALIA, a 2½-year veteran with the force.
Yesterday, as police continued their investigation, relatives of the teens were struggling to make sense of the horrific crash.
"We are all still in shock," said Ali SHAUKAT, as relatives gathered to comfort the grieving family at their home.
"Waleed was very lovely and very caring," said the father, recalling the generosity of a son who worked full-time to pay the family's rent. "He was the only person taking care of the family… He always respected all of his elders."
The teen was supporting both his parents, his 22-year-old brother Omar, and sisters Sara, 16, and Fyzah 9, said the father.
His uncle, Ahmed MURID, remembered him as a "very friendly guy" with "lots of Friends" who always "worked hard" and still managed to find time to volunteer in the community.
The elder SHAUKAT said he believed the trio of teens, who met in high school, may have been out celebrating MATTU's birthday. He said he did not know the circumstances surrounding the accident but believed YUSAF was the driver of the van. The father said his son dreamed of one day finishing high school and going to university.
In an online Web portfolio posted by Waleed SHAUKAT when he was 15, the teen lists his hobbies as travelling, listening to rap and bhangra music, playing basketball with Friends and going to the cinema. He also writes that he loves watching scary movies at night, meeting new people and chatting on the Internet with Friends and family around the world.
Last night, relatives at the SHAUKAT household said they were mystified by television news reports in the afternoon that MATTU had died in hospital, particularly since some had gone to visit him in the evening. Family of the two other teens could not be reached last night.

Gator kills elderly London woman
By Randy RICHMOND, Sun Media, Sat., October 13, 2007
An elderly London woman dragged to her death by a 2.4-metre alligator at a resort community in Georgia was "a lovely lady," a longtime neighbour here said yesterday.
The body of Gwen WILLIAMS, 83, was found in a lagoon on Skidaway Island, 19 kilometres southeast of Savannah, a week ago.
"She was a lovely lady," said Heather STANTON, who grew up across the road from WILLIAMS in London. "It is an unfortunate accident."
Another neighbour, Glen Cornish, said WILLIAMS's family is "doing fine."
He declined to say more, adding WILLIAMS's children did not want to comment.
WILLIAMS lived on her own, a friend said.
Georgia police would only say this week that WILLIAMS was originally from Wales and lived in Canada about 55 years.
WILLIAMS was housesitting for relatives at The Landings, an exclusive gated resort community on Skidaway Island.
WILLIAMS was last seen a week ago Friday in the afternoon.
Police learned later residents had heard someone shouting for help but couldn't find the source, Savannah news media reported.
About noon Saturday, a couple walking a resort golf course found her body -- missing its left arm, right hand and right foot -- in a lagoon about 150 metres from the house, Savannah police said.
Police searched the home and area for evidence of foul play, but found only that WILLIAMS's patio screen door was unlocked.
An autopsy Tuesday revealed wounds consistent with an alligator attack and ruled WILLIAMS bled to death.
A trapper for the Georgia Department of Natural Resources found and shot the alligator Tuesday night, in a lagoon about 30 metres from where WILLIAMS 's body was found.
Tests showed the alligator was responsible for WILLIAMS's death.
"This is the first alligator attack fatality since 1980," Jim Simmons, a senior biologist for the department, said in a written statement.
"We are saddened by this tragic loss of life."
There's no evidence WILLIAMS did anything irresponsible, such as feeding the alligator, to provoke the attack, wildlife officials said.
But the death underscores the need for everyone to avoid feeding alligators, because they become habituated to humans and more aggressive, Simmons added.

STAPLETON, Arnold Grieve
Joined his wife Helen (née PRESTON) and soul mate of 49 years on Wednesday, December 19, 2007. Born August 2, 1918 in Stratford, Ontario, he is survived by his second wife Mary MacLEOD, brother Bill, brother-in-law Hugh SHORTILL, children Joan BOXER (Richard,) Jeff (Patti,) Diana (Bill TAILOR/TAYLOR,) and Arn (Peggy.) Grandchildren Sarah, John, Todd, Marley, Preston and Katie will sorely miss their Poppa. Uncle Arn leaves giant shoes to fill in the lives of the many Stapleton/Preston relatives spread throughout the world. As corporate lawyer (having graduated from Osgoode Hall in 1950), Director of Personnel and chief labour contract negotiator for General Motors of Canada over a 29 year career, A.G. was the youngest director in the company's history. His was the voice of reason - the calm amidst many a storm during one of the most challenging eras in the United Auto Workers/General Motors contract evolution. Many said that Arn's unique ability to compartmentalize complicated concepts won over both union foes and management associates alike. He was able to maintain composure by utilizing a wonderful sense of humour centered around a quick wit and well placed one-liners. A man of few words, when he spoke, people listened. An English scholar (Words Are Important!), a history and travel buff, a Wagnerian connoisseur, a lover of opera and Shakespeare and one heck of a bridge and chess player, Arn was a 50+ year subscriber to the Stratford Festival (his second most favorite place after the family cottage at Inverhuron Beach). Always willing to give his ample talents to worthy causes, Arn served as Chairman and long time director of the Oshawa General Hospital, board member of both St. Andrew's Church in Oshawa and First-St. Andrew's United Church in London, and was a member in standing of the Law Society of Canada. In the words of his beloved Shakespeare -"to thine own self be true". A celebration of Arn's life will be held at First-St. Andrew's United Church, 350 Queens Avenue at Waterloo, London on Saturday, January 5 at 1: 00 p.m. Reception to follow. Cremation and Spring interment at Avondale Cemetery, Stratford. Memorial contributions to the Heart and Stroke Foundation, 633 Colborne Street, Suite 150, London, Ontario N6B 2V3 would be gratefully appreciated.
