    Unless there was another, unmentioned, sibling I'm guessing that Simmie was the sole beneficiary and inherited a substantial legacy as a result of the murders.

    It's an odd sequence of events geographically. None of these places are terribly far apart, but they're sort of parts of different worlds... Inn on the Park doesn't exist anymore according to Google maps, but my recollection is that it was at Eglinton and Leslie. Glencairn and Bathurst isn't super far, but it's not like it's exactly on the way from there to Yorkville. In the 70s, Yorkville was transitioning from its hippie music days to its modern ritzy shopping persona, but definitely still closer to the 60s. Seems like a surprising spot for a possibly conservative Jewish family, but perhaps the father owned property there.

    Hmm, and the rather unusual way the evening unfolded – driving the brother home, then going out separately with the mother – did ensure that each family member was home alone or arrived home separately. My speculation only.

    This was my aunt, uncle and cousin. I was seven years old at the time. The story above differs from what I was told as a teenager. I do know that it was a young Julian Fantino who was one of the officers working the case.

    Welcome to Ws Danmarco!
    Very sorry about the terrible loss of your family members, hoping to bring some attention to this disturbing crime by posting about the case here.
    Any extra details or clarification most welcome.
