To the Toronto Homicide Squad he is known as Homicide: #53/2008; to those of us that knew and loved him he is Boris Cikovic. A beautiful boy that had the ability to make anyone smile by just walking into a room, the son of Vesna and Davorin Cikovic…their only son. To me he is the handsome boy that all the girls had a crush on at some point while they were growing up, the boy that would come to our place and eat just about everything you put in front of him, the boy that would ask me to mousse and diffuse his hair, would eat my daughter’s crayons and my dog’s treats…the boy that would come by our place daily and bring life into our home along with him.
Boris was taken from us very abruptly one night by a bunch of low-life delinquents that had nothing better to do but walk around looking for trouble. One of these parasites of society is named Nahoor Araya, he was identified to be there this very tragic night and it has been court date after painful court date for Boris’ parents and friends. We have all had to sit back and watch as this individual has been allowed to be a part of everyday society on bail without a care in the world. He has been attending Humber College along with Boris’ friends who have to bump into him in the hallways and on shared public transportation. Which by the way violates his probation…but you know, who cares right?….Right.
It saddens me to see the changes in all the kids that have had to deal with his passing, not to mention the pain in his parents and any other parent that can empathize with losing a child. I also have to admire the resilience in them though for putting up with this shitty legal system. Its frustrating to see the kind of shit people get away with in the courts. I truly hope these parents find some peace in knowing that their son’s killer and all those involved will one day face some sort of punishment…like making them play in traffic perhaps?
