    Canada - Skanda Navaratnam, 40, Toronto ON, 5 Sept 2010

    Broadcast time: 15:30
    Monday, September 27, 2010
    51 Division

    The Toronto Police Service is requesting the public’s assistance locating a missing man.
    Skanda Navaratnam, 40, was last seen on Sunday, September 5, 2010, at 12:30 a.m., in the Church Street/Carleton Street area.

    He is described as brown, 5'8", thin build, black hair, brown eyes with a black goatee. Police are concerned for his safety.

    He has not been in contact with his friends or used his cellphone, which is very unusual.

    Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 416−808−5100, Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416−222−TIPS (8477), online at www.222tips.com, text TOR and your
    message to CRIMES (274637), or Leave A Tip on Facebook.

    It’s not unusual for Skanda Navaratnam to disappear for a couple days at a time, so two years ago he made a deal with his best friend.

    “After three days, if you don’t hear from me, start worrying,” Jean-Guy Cloutier recalled Navaratnam telling him.

    It has been nearly three weeks since the 40-year-old man vanished from a downtown bar. His family of friends started worrying a long time ago.

    “I’m hoping that he decided to just pick up and go. That would be the best-case scenario, that he just forgot (about our deal) and said, ‘Forget this, I’m going to start a new life somewhere else,’” Cloutier said Thursday amid a week of postering pictures of his friend around downtown Toronto around downtown Toronto.

    That scenario is hopeful, but seems unlikely considering the circumstances.

    Police look to community for leads in disappearance of three men

    Toronto Police Service is linking the disappearances of three men known to live near or frequent the Church and Wellesley area.


    Toronto police link three missing persons’ cases in Gay Village

    In what were originally thought unconnected incidents of missing persons, Toronto police have now linked the cases of three men who disappeared over the last three years from the heart of the city’s gay community.

    Police haven’t ruled out foul play in the disappearance of three men from the heart of Toronto’s gay community.

    And without any answers into what happened, the community is on edge.

    In what were originally thought to be three unconnected incidents of missing persons, police have now linked the cases of Skandaraj “Skanda” Navaratnam, 40, Abdulbasir “Basir” Faizi, 44, and 59-year-old Majeed “Hamid” Kayhan.

    The men disappeared between mid-2010 and late 2012.

    This US perp targeted gay men..


    "Seattle fugitive suspected of killing two gay men nabbed in New Jersey
    West Orange and Essex County authorities took Ali Muhammed Brown, 29, into custody on Friday afternoon on suspicion of killing two men he met at a Seattle gay club on June 1 through a social networking app such as Jack’d or Grindr

    " The 29-year-old homeless man is expected to be extradited back to Washington state where he faces two counts of aggravated murder for allegedly shooting Dwone Anderson-Young, 23, and Ahmed Said, 27, execution-style on June 1. Their bodies were found in the street outside the home of one of the victims only minutes after leaving a bar together.

    The motive behind their violent death, described by prosecutors as “extremely violent, senseless and seemingly unprovoked,” is not clear, but detectives are looking at the killings as a possible hate crime because Anderson-Young and Said were gay"

    In what were originally thought to be three unconnected incidents of missing persons, police have now linked the cases of Skandaraj “Skanda” Navaratnam, 40, Abdulbasir “Basir” Faizi, 44, and 59-year-old Majeed “Hamid” Kayhan.

    The men disappeared between mid-2010 and late 2012

    Navaratnam was last seen in the early hours of Sept. 6, 2010, at Zipperz, a popular gay bar in the Church and Carlton Sts. area. Police said he was seen leaving with an unknown man, whom they are now trying to identify.
    In the hours prior to his disappearance, Navaratnam was with a friend at another bar he frequented before going to Zipperz alone. In a 2010 interview with Xtra magazine, a close friend said Navaratnam was a regular at the bar, along with Black Eagle and Pegasus, both located on Church near Wellesley St. E.
