    This was a particularly nasty and brutal crime scene, LE think it may have been personal and that the victim may have known the killer/s.

    Lengthy article from May, 16, 2013..

    "The 54-year-old man’s body was found by an employee of his scrap metal and pop machine repair business.
    “The crime scene was fairly extensive and horrific at the time,” said Det. Sgt. John Mans of the Halton Regional Police Service Homicide and Regional Fraud Unit.
    Henttonen, who was estranged from his wife, died of multiple stab wounds from a large knife, believed to have come from his apartment. Mans said it’s quite possible whoever killed him may have been injured.
    “There was blood everywhere,” he said. “There was hair, there were fingerprints. Everything you can possibly think of was gathered. To date that evidence has not identified who the person was.”
    Some witnesses had reported that Henttonen had recently won a couple thousand dollars in the lottery. Mans said money was taken when he was killed, but it’s unknown if that was the sole motive or due to an “opportunistic moment.”
    There was other things in the apartment police believe would have been removed if robbery were the only motive, he said.
    Shortly after the murder, Hay said there was no sign of forced entry, the apartment wasn’t ransacked, and it didn’t look like there had been any struggle or fight.
    Henttonen’s green 1997 Chevrolet pickup truck was found abandoned at Mountainview Rd. and Dominion Gardens Dr. two days later on the morning of Sunday, May 19. Some witnesses said they had seen two people in the truck as it fled Henttonen’s apartment"

    New technology might help find the killer via the hand print left behind at the crime scene.
    Link includes video showcasing palm print database.

    "Halton Regional Police's Det. Dave Banks knows which old print he'll be submitting to the new database, a palm impression linked to the unsolved murder of Paavo Paul Henttonen.

    "I have a palm print from that particular case from the vehicle that was used in that particular homicide and recovered from the inside surface of the door."

    Henttonen was stabbed to death inside his home in Georgetown, Ont., in 2002.

    "With the new RCMP database involving palms we're hopeful that once this crime scene impression gets put into the database that any new people getting arrested or re-arrested and their palm prints taken and put into that database, we'll get a match on it," he said."
