    Body believed to be in barrel found in Toronto harbour
    Web Staff, cp24.com


    Police gather at 125 Queens Quay W. after a barrel believed to be in a body was found in the Toronto harbour on Sunday, May 23, 2010.



    Police removed a barrel that is believed to contain a body from the Toronto harbour just before 1 p.m. Sunday.


    The body is believed to be encased in concrete, Homicide Detective Hank Idsinga tells CP24.


    Police divers discovered the barrel near Queen's Quay and Jarvis Street, near the Redpath sugar refinery. Police spokesperson Tony Vella won't say how they were led to the scene.


    Police say they can't confirm the gender of the person but they don't believe it is a child.


    The marine unit was called in to assist the homicide squad in pulling the barrel out of the water.

    There's no doubt police are dealing with a homicide and most certainly the work of more than one person, police Det. Justin Vanderheyden told Toronto radio station 680 News.

    "A definitely deliberate act, this isn't something that was done by a single person, he said. "Obviously that barrel full of concrete is going to weigh quite some amount of weight, so I'd speculate this is going to be some sort of organized effort to get this body here."

    Yellow police tape was placed around the scene at a grimy area of Toronto's waterfront, dominated by docks and warehouses

    LE knew exactly where to look. Someone's talking.

    This sounds so Soprano-esque.

    My guess is that it isn't Mariam Makhniashvili or any of the other Southern Ontario missing persons being talked about on these forums.

    Yes, ITA - Sounds like organized crime, to me.

    Police in Toronto, Montreal work to ID body in barrel dumped in Lake Ontario
    Mon, 24/05/2010 - 6:51pm

    [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.

    Quang Lu, 47, went missing in October, 2007, shortly after returning from China. He was reportedly a loan shark, and lived a ‘‘high risk lifestyle,’’ said Detective Hank Idsinga of the Toronto police homicide squad.
    “Mr. Lu does have ties to Asian organized crime,’’ he said.
    Police found the body in a barrel in the water near 125 Queen’s Quay East not long after they received a tip.
