    Denis Beauchamps?

    https://www.services.rcmp-grc.gc.ca/...014002519&id=0

    Seems too obvious though and surely must have been ruled out?

    I posted this in another thread. Confusing. Looking at the photo of Denis Beauchamps looks like he was living as a male so I'm not sure if he would fit. I wish they would tell us if he was born male or female. The bio says he had a boyfriend, alias is Danika Valery. I'm assuming that he was born female but identified as male. We would have to contact LE in his case too.

    Need to make a question list to give to LE

    Wondering if he/she ( sorry just not sure in this case of the correct gender term to use) came from the Queen's Park area or from Gerrard St area, perhaps as a prostitute?
    He may not have been gay at all, but in need of money and fulfilling a role for someone requesting it.
    speculation, imo.

They probably thought he was female due to the clothing. Next question would be were any items found that a trans woman would use to conceal male reproductive organs? Were they able to run any tests that would show he was taking hormones? Not sure what the test is called but there's a case in FL (IIRC) where they know remains found were taking female hormones. I don't have time right now to grab the case info. They had recently done a sketch for her in fall of 2015

    Transvestite - a person, typically a man, who derives pleasure from dressing in clothes appropriate to the opposite sex.
    synonyms: drag queen, cross-dresser, female impersonator

    He is mentioned in a book Unsolved: True Canadian Cold Cases By Robert J. Hoshowsky; they go into more details about LE thinking the person was hit by a car, I guess thrown 75ft into the woods. When they reopened the case they realized that the clothing never was on the remains

    "We hope it looks pretty close to this and that someone comes forward," said Detective-Constable Clarke, who unveiled a drawing to the media of what police believe the victim looked in life: a slender, effeminate-looking young man with dark hair about 4 inches long, wearing red and pink, pointy toed, high heeled shoes, white frilly socks, form fitting blue Brittania jeans (women's size 30/29), and an open-collard, red, short-sleeved blouse.

    "It's my belief that he was transgender, possibly in the sex trade down in the Toronto area which … was a bit of a haven, in the 70's for gays," said Clark, who also speculated that the young man may have come to Toronto years ago to live his life as part of the city's large gay, lesbian and transgendered community. "In my opinion, I think he was picked up in the city, taken to [Markham], endeavors occurred and then he was killed and left there," repeated the Detective-Constable, calling the wooded area "a dumping ground."

    It was initially thought the man may have been hit by a car, wandered off the road and died in the wooded area.

    But the story took an odd turn when women's clothing was found next to the remains -- a red shirt, a pair of woman's jeans, red-high-heeled shoes and white frilly socks.

    "To walk off to the side of the road, take of your clothes and die, it just doesn't make sense," Clarke said.

    The female clothing and other items found led investigators to believe the man was most likely transgendered.

    "We don't have a cause of death," Clarke said. "But it's believed foul play was involved."

    Whether the man was left there to die or his body was dumped remains a mystery.
    York Regional Police file # 1980-13437

    On December 1, 2009, York Regional Police investigators had reason to be hopeful about a new investigative avenue in the case of unidentified skeletal remains found nearly 30 years earlier.

    Members of the public were asked to view a new, museum-quality clay bust of the unidentified man. The man's remains were discovered by a Markham resident on the side of the Eleventh Concession, north of Steeles Avenue, on July 16, 1980.

    Unfortunately, the bust failed to spark anyone's memory and the man has yet to be identified. Forensic testing found that he was a white male between 25 and 40 years old when he died. He stood at roughly 5'6", weighed between 100 and 120 pounds and had dark, medium-length brown hair.

    Along with the remains, police found a variety of women's clothing items, including red high-heeled shoes, white socks, jeans and a powder compact with a mirror. Investigators believe those items were worn by the victim.

    Toronto is in Ontario. The clubs where the school teacher had been hanging out the night he was murdered is in the " gay village", it also is an area where sex workers, gay, straight and transgendered, ect.may pick up " dates ", imo.

    This google map shows the distance of where the UID TG person was located and the murdered school teacher's home.Approx. 30 minutes away.

    The area where the TG UID remains found, is also about 30 minutes drive from the clubs the teacher attended prior to his murder.
