A friend remembers Ryerson student Carina Petrache who was stabbed and burned to death at age 24
Months later Sarah Wong still can’t believe that her good friend Carina Petrache (above middle) is dead.

For Sarah Wong, a call from hergood friend Carina Petrache waspart of her daily ritual. The twohad known each other since livingnext to one another in residenceat University of Toronto, and re-mained pals after Petrache trans-ferred to Ryerson.Wong moved to Shanghai ayear ago, but the 12 hour timedifference didn’t stop the friendsfrom talking, even if it meant thatPetrache had to make late nightphone calls to China. No matterwhat, they made sure they keptin touch. But one day the callsstopped coming.“I didn’t think she was in a placeof danger,” said Wong, who g-ured Petrache, a Ryerson psychol-ogy and criminology student, had just gotten busy.She tried calling Petrache andmessaging her on Facebook, butdidn’t hear from her even a monthlater. Then Wong got a call from Toronto. It wasn’t Petrache. It wasanother friend, who told her that24-year-old Petrache was mur-dered. The morning of July 2, Pe-trache’s next door neighbour, anun who asked not to be named,heard a woman screaming forhelp and called 911. The roominghouse where Petrache lived wason re.“You hear people yelling forhelp in the street all the time andit’s not serious,” she said. “Thiswas a different kind of yell.”Fireghters pulled Petrachefrom the building at Huron andBloor streets around 10 a.m. andpronounced her dead at thescene. But the re wasn’t the ex-tent of the tragedy. Police said shedied of stab wounds and burns,but wouldn’t conrm neighboursaccounts that her throat had beenslit.“When I saw the plain-clothedpolice and the SWAT team go in, Iknew that it was more than just are,” said Lynn Jenkins, who livedacross the street from Petrache.She said she saw ames comingfrom the basement windowsDet. Ian Briggs of Toronto PoliceServices said Petrache’s boyfriend,Farshad Badakhshan, will becharged with rst-degree murder,but charges have yet to be formal-ly laid. Badakhshan was in a comaat Sunnybrook Hospital where hewas being treated for burns tomost of his body.At the time of the tragedy, Pa-trache’s neighbour saw Badakh-shan through the kitchen windowof the rooming house. She saidshe knew that something hadhappened because his shirt wastattered. Her gaze locked with Ba-dakhshan’s. His eyes were glazedover.But it wasn’t the rst time shehad seen Badakhshan at the win-dows. Badakhshan lived in thebasement apartment and was of-ten peering out into the laneway.He could see when Petrache wascoming and going from the house.Wong said when Petrachecalled her, she would say that shecouldn’t talk because her boy-friend was listening in. She would

wasn’t a social buttery, but thosewho were her friends were verylucky.”She said that Petrache was justa really sweet girl, who was alwaysconcerned about others. She al-ways wanted to make sure that ev-eryone was having a good time andthat everyone was doing all right,which is why she called her goodfriend in China everyday. The thing Wong is going to missthe most is the phone calls with herfriend. When something happensin Shanghai, her rst reaction is tocall Petrache.“It’s very hard to nd someonewho you can talk to about any-thing,” Wong said. “She was a greatlistener.”Petrache’s murder is still un-der police investigation, and Det.Briggs says it could take at least acouple of years for the case to go totrial. According to police, the caseshould be resolved quickly in court.
You hear people yellingin the streets for helpall the time and it’s notserious. This was adifferent kind of yell.

This summer the caeteria was slapped with “crucial” and “siginifcant” inractions or ailing to provide adequate pest control, ood saety and to ensureood is not contaminated. Ryerson President Sheldon Levy says the university has “dramtically” increased pest control rom one to three times a week.
