    • Triple murderer in Ontario Glove killings up for parole next month

      ....The killings

      On Friday, Jan. 31, 1992, Dombroskie, a leather cutter who had worked at Ontario Glove for eight years, was sent home from work and told to return when he could do the job properly. The concern centred around his stacking of leather pieces.

      Three days later, on the morning of Monday, Feb. 3, Dombroskie put a .30-calibre semi-automatic hunting rifle and 60 rounds of ammunition in his car, filled up with gas, bought a coffee at Conestoga Mall and drove to Ontario Glove on Dotzert Court, a cul-de-sac just across King Street North from the mall.

      He entered the small factory around 11: 30 a.m., quietly walking past several co-workers, looking only for those he thought were responsible for his being sent home.

      In a matter of minutes, he fired six shots, killing three people.

      His first victim was More's brother, Greg, 39. He was shot twice at close range.

      Next was Elisabeth Travassos, 43, who had apparently complained about Dombroskie's work. She was shot from six metres away.

      He then fatally shot supervisor Larry Strack, 33, from a distance of 60 metres, as Strack ran for his life outside the factory....
