Po­lice ap­peal for help in TTC shoot­ing cold case

Cape Breton Post - - CANADA -

TORONTO — A sus­pect who held up the same Toronto sub­way sta­tion three times and shot a TTC fare col­lec­tor in the neck five years ago has not been linked to any crimes since then, po­lice said Mon­day in ap­peal­ing for in­for­ma­tion in the case.

The sus­pect, who is de­scribed as a heavy­set white man or woman in their 30s or 40s and likely left-handed, has “lit­er­ally dis­ap­peared,” Staff Insp. Mike Earl said in a news con­fer­ence.

“It’s a very unique sit­u­a­tion,” he said. “I’ve never seen any­thing like this be­fore where the same place has been tar­geted three times al­most four months apart and no other crimes were com­mit­ted that we can tell by this in­di­vid­ual any­where else in the GTA or in the prov­ince of On­tario.” “I think this in­di­vid­ual is prob­a­bly ec­cen­tric and maybe even pri­vate” and clearly fa­mil­iar with the area, he said. All in­ves­tiga­tive leads have now dried up, he said, and po­lice are ask­ing for help in iden­ti­fy­ing the sus­pect. A $25,000 re­ward of­fered to any­one with in­for­ma­tion that leads to an ar­rest and con­vic­tion in the case has yet to be claimed.
