    Police in Toronto, Montreal work to ID body in barrel dumped in Lake Ontario

    [snipped...] TORONTO - Toronto police are working with their counterparts in Montreal and Ontario on the identity of a body found encased in concrete inside a rusted barrel dumped in Lake Ontario.

    A Montreal police spokesman said Monday he supposed the contact among police forces may be related to a suspected kidnapping in Quebec last week.

    "We had a missing person last week. It may be that. It's one of the suppositions that I'm making," said Const. Daniel Lacoursiere in Montreal, who added that he did not know "exactly" why Toronto police were in touch and that he could say no more.

    Paolo Renda, a reputed major player in the Vito Rizzuto crime family in Montreal, is missing and believed to have been kidnapped from his car near his home Thursday afternoon.

    The police in Toronto were not saying Monday whose body they think is in the barrel and would not provide details of their communication with police in Quebec.

    Unidentified body found in Verdun

    Updated: Sat May. 29 2010 2:56:44 PM
    ctvmontreal.ca
    The body of an unidentified man in his 60s has washed up on the shore of the St. Lawrence River in Verdun.

    A man bird watching called 9-1-1 at 10:30 a.m. Saturday after he spotted the corpse across from a park at 6319 Lasalle Blvd.

    The clothing and description do not match that of missing 70-year-old Paolo Renda, said Montreal police Const. Olivier Lapointe. Renda, who is linked to the Montreal Mafia, disappeared on May 20. His vehicle was found with the keys still in the ignition near his home in Cartierville. He is presumed kidnapped

    Do we have any information on Renda's biological family? I'm wondering if LE even has DNA to make a comparison.

    Body in Toronto barrel not that of Renda

    The cement-encased body pulled out of Lake Ontario by Toronto police on Sunday is not that of Paolo Renda, the Montreal Mafia leader who vanished mysteriously last Thursday.

    Toronto police identified the victim as 47-year-old Quang Lu, who had been living in Thornhill, Ont. when he went missing in 2007.

    Reputed Montreal mobster sent to jail

    A man considered by police to be an influential member of a Mafia clan has been sentenced to a three-year prison term for walking around with a pistol during a turbulent time in the city's underworld.

    Nicola Di Marco, 41, of St. Léonard, was arrested last summer, when several people tied to the Rizzuto organization were on alert following the kidnapping of Paolo Renda in May and the killing of Agostino Cuntrera in June.

    Charges expected after shooting of Raynald Desjardins

    Charges are expected to be filed Monday in Laval court against a man believed to have been acting as a bodyguard for Raynald Desjardins, an alleged associate of the Rizzuto organization who was targeted in a shooting on Friday.

    [snip]

    The apparent attempt on Desjardins’s life is the latest in a series of violence where members of the Rizzuto clan and their associates were the targets. While Vito Rizzuto has been jailed in the U.S., for taking part in the 1981 murders of three Mafia capos in Brooklyn, New York, his son Nick and father Nicolo Sr. have been murdered in Montreal. Rizzuto’s brother-in-law Paolo Renda, another leader in the organization, went missing in May 2010 and Agostino Cuntrera, an influential figure in the organization, was murdered weeks later.

    Tumultuous times await Vito Rizzuto

    Vito Rizzuto is expected to be released from U.S. custody in the fall after serving five years of his eight-year sentence.

    In less than six months, Vito Rizzuto, a man described in the past as "the Godfather" of the Mafia in Montreal, is expected to return to a city whose underworld has undergone a seismic change in his absence.

    [snip]

    Vito Rizzuto's son Nicolo Jr. was killed in 2009, the first clear sign the clan was vulnerable. Months later, Rizzuto's brother-in-law, Paolo Renda, was apparently kidnapped and on Nov. 10, 2010, his father Nicolo was fatally shot in his home on Antoine Berthelet Ave. - the clearest sign someone was trying to seize control over what remained of the Mafia in Montreal.
