    Turns out the victim, Wasfi Ghalban, is not a taxi driver, but a tattoo shop owner who worked on Yonge St .and Gerrard st.
    The victim was not married.


    "TORONTO - Two mystery men are now sought in the murder of a tattoo shop owner who was slain in his St. James Town apartment during a suspected robbery last month.

    And Toronto Police hope newly released video of the two “persons of interest” — spotted by security cameras entering Wasfi Ghalban’s highrise at 200 Wellesley St. E. two days before his body was found Dec. 3 — may be key to solving the killing.

    “It appears that this was a targeted attack and robbery may have been the motive,” Homicide Det.-Sgt. Mike Carbone said Wednesday."

    Carbone said Ghalban, a single man who police believe operated a tattoo and piercing shop on Yonge Street, was last seen at work at 6 p.m. on Dec. 1. Investigators are asking anyone who may have been in contact with the victim between 6 p.m. and 11 p.m. on that day to call police.

    Police are also appealing to residents of the apartment building to come forward with any information they may have about the case.

    "This is a very large building," Carbone said.

    "We've made every effort to speak to the occupants of this apartment building."
