Police confirm remains of Cecilia Zhang
Last Updated Sun, 28 Mar 2004 18:13:10

MISSISSAUGA, ONT. - Police confirmed Sunday that the human remains found in a wooded ravine west of Toronto are those of nine-year-old Cecilia Zhang, who went missing last October.

The remains were spotted by a hiker behind Mississauga's Church of the Croatian Martyrs at 1:45 p.m. Saturday, police said.

Police said Zhang's remains had been at the site for some time, but refused to provide further details, such as the cause of death, because the case had now become a homicide investigation.

Peel Regional Police Inspector Richard De Facendis, told reporters that the crime scene has been sealed off and various police forces will cooperate in what is sure to be an exhaustive and challenging search of the wooded area.

Earlier in the day, Toronto police sent officers and a religious minister to visit the girl's family to offer them support in dealing with the media.

Zhang was last seen asleep in her family's Toronto home last Oct. 19, and police believe she was abducted by an intruder.

I only hope for her sake that she didn't have to live under horrible conditions with her kidnapper(s) for a long time. I guess the investigation will reveal how long ago she perished. I also hope that the sick pieces of shit who did this will have what's coming to them.

GRRRRRRR!

While at work tonite, a few of my coworkers stared in shock as I informed them with regret that they confirmed that Cecilia's body was found. I'm imagining this wasn't a freak occurrance and that many in this city are shocked and sickened by the find. It put things in perspective to see the shock it caused us in the restaurant, this must be the feeling of many people who had turned on the TV to see this.

I've heard her parents spent EVERY night since he kidnapping driving around Toronto in a hopeless effort to find their daughter. This also hits a little harder seeing as how she was abducted from her home in a neighborhood about 1 or 2 miles away from my own. I heard from coworkers that Cecilia used to come and eat at my restaurant fairly often, that hurts even more, I see a lot of kids at work and I would just hope there isn't a day when one day I find out one of them has gone missing.

Nuno echoes my feelings regarding her killers, I hope they get caught quick and get what they have coming 10 fold!  Pissed

What a sad day in Toronto!  Sad

I hadn't heard about it either, not everything makes the world news, no matter how shocking.
After Monday and Tuesday even the calendar says WTF...

For those calling for justice, remember this is Canada where the most you get is 25 years no matter how horrific the crime. This only applies to adult offenders, if this was someone under 18 then the max, unless convicted as an adult, is 10 years.

This is another shining example of Canada's thoroughly inadequate laws when it comes to sentencing those amongst us who are degenerates. If I were a criminal, Canada would be my playground.

Like everyone else, my heart saddened when I heard
the tragic news about little Cecilia Zhang. I also
instantly thought of this poignant poem, written long
ago by the Irish literary great, William Butler Yeats.
It seems, given the horrific circumstances, sadly apt.

And there for the Grace of God goes she.


The Stolen Child
by William Butler Yeats.

Where dips the rocky highland
Of Sleuth Wood in the lake,
There lies a leafy island
Where flapping herons wake
The drowsy water-rats;
There we've hid our faery vats,
Full of berries
And of reddest stolen chetries.
Come away, O human child!
To the waters and the wild
With a faery, hand in hand,
For the world's more full of weeping than you
can understand.

Where the wave of moonlight glosses
The dim grey sands with light,
Far off by furthest Rosses
We foot it all the night,
Weaving olden dances,
Mingling hands and mingling glances
Till the moon has taken flight;
To and fro we leap
And chase the frothy bubbles,
While the world is full of troubles
And is anxious in its sleep.
Come away, O human child!
To the waters and the wild
With a faery, hand in hand,
For the world's more full of weeping than you
can understand.

Where the wandering water gushes
From the hills above Glen-Car,
In pools among the rushes
That scarce could bathe a star,
We seek for slumbering trout
And whispering in their ears
Give them unquiet dreams;
Leaning softly out
From ferns that drop their tears
Over the young streams.
Come away, O human child!
To to waters and the wild
With a faery, hand in hand,
For to world's more full of weeping than you
can understand.

Away with us he's going,
The solemn-eyed:
He'll hear no more the lowing
Of the calves on the warm hillside
Or the kettle on the hob
Sing peace into his breast,
Or see the brown mice bob
Round and round the oatmeal-chest.
For he comes, the human child,
To the waters and the wild
With a faery, hand in hand,
from a world more full of weeping than you
can understand.

It is not true that the maximum you can get in Canada is 25 years. The maximum you can get is 25 years before you get a CHANCE at parole; perhaps that's what you're thinking of? That doens't mean you WILL get parole after 25 years. Life can very well mean life. That's why they still call it life, not '25 years'.

They should come up with a new type of punishment for "people" who murder innocent children....

This is very sad. My husband grew up only a couple of km from where Cecilia lived.
But that was when I ruled the world
