Randal Dooley Appeal.. The Nerve

In 2002 Tony and Marcia Dooley were found guilty of second degree murder and sentenced to life in prison and they are now seeking a new trial.

I’ll never forget the case of 7 year old Randal Dooley who was tormented by his father and step mother after arriving from Jamaica to live with them. The details of what these pigs did to him could only bring tears to the eyes of any human being. Along with a tapestry of scars and bruises, a post-mortem on Randal's emaciated, 40-pound body discovered 13 broken ribs, a lacerated liver and a tooth in his stomach.

There is purportedly "fresh evidence" to suggest that the original cause of death finding may have been wrong. the fresh evidence application filed jointly with Marie Henein, representing Marcia Dooley, a different version of events and potential cause of death is promoted by a neuropathologist who states he could find no evidence to prove that subdural hematoma had been fatal, the cause of death entered at trial a "bunch of speculations."

I hope that Tony and Marcia Dooley never see the day of light. I can only hope and pray that this new information does not help them to see the light of day. I will sign any petition I have to.

Homicide #41-Donald Jackson

UPDATE #2 - The other suspect in the murder case, 26 year old Merhawi Tekle has turned himself in and has charged with first degree murder. Police initially identified the dead man as 61-year-old Benson Smith, but after further investigation, his identity was confirmed as 71-year-old Donald Constantine Jackson.

UPDATE: The 14 year old girl has turned herself in and has been charged with first-degree murder. Police are still looking for 26 year old Merhawi Tekle.

61 year old Benton Smith was beaten to death and left to die last week Tuesday. This past Friday life support had to be pulled making this homicide #41 in the GTA. The two individuals below are wanted for questioning in his murder.

The victim was supposedly accused by a female of stealing something which he denied. She eventually got two males who came and beat the man so severely. The man was beaten to death in the Pine Hills Cemetery. The man, who police describe as a "transient" and who had been living in shelters, denied the woman's accusations and went to the cemetery.

The woman is described as black with a light complexion, 19 to 21-years-old, between 5-foot-4 and five-foot-6 with black, curly hair in a ponytail. The man is described as black with a light complexion, 20 to 25-years-old, 5-foot-6 to 5-foot-8 and 150 pounds with long, dark hair in a ponytail. He may be driving a newer model white SUV.

What is the world coming to that you need to beat a 61 year helpless man to death? Just SAD.

Homicide #40-Sheldon Anthony Henry

The newest murder victim is 23 year old Sheldon Henry and he was trying to change. A young black man life’s lost once again and for what? What’s even worse is he was trying to change his life around. He mentored kids in the area and told them to do better for themselves and not go the direction he decided to go. Unfortunately sometimes when you attempt to change your past will always come to haunt you and in this case it ended his life. Sheldon leaves behind two children.

The young man was shot twice in the chest and was already dead when EMS arrived. Sparroways has been known in the past for its violent history but the neighbourhood did a complete 360 in pretty much the last 10-15 years. Residents said the neighbourhood is usually peaceful so this shooting comes as a shock.

Witnesses told police they saw a lone gunman flee the low-rise building's lobby, heading south on a walkway towards Finch.

Homicide #39 - Kamal Hercules

The life of Kamal Hercules was celebrated yesterday by friends and his family tried to come to grips with the fact that he is gone. Kamal was shot to death this past weekend on Saturday and police now state it may have just been a random act of violence.

Police are still looking for a suspect after the 21-year-old was shot repeatedly by a gunman who walked up and opened fire as he talked to a friend in a covered walkway at Front and Sherbourne Sts. early Saturday.

Kamal was said to be a good man, great dancer and excellent basketball player. He was well liked by people and was not involved in any type of gang activity. Police are now combing through surveillance videos to see if they can find what happened up until Kamal was shot to death.
This marks the 39th murder of 2009.
