    Killings in Toronto’s gay community highlight dangers faced by sex workers
    January 30, 2018

    Snipped...
    ...At a town hall meeting last summer, members of Toronto's gay community, worried that a serial killer was operating in their midst, warned that the city's sex workers might be particularly at risk.

    That fear proved prescient, as police reported on Monday that Dean Lisowick, a common face in the Gay Village and long-time sex worker, is believed to be the last known victim of alleged serial killer Bruce McArthur.

    ...Mr. Lisowick had never been reported missing and was homeless at the time of his disappearance. Police were not even able to give a precise date for when they believe he died. According to the charge information filed in court on Monday, Mr. Lisowick may have died anywhere between April, 2016, and March, 2017. At their news conference, police said he may have been alive as late of July, 2017.

    Monica Forrester, program co-ordinator at Maggie's Toronto Sex Workers Action Project, said she saw Mr. Lisowick last summer, likely in July, at one of his regular spots on Church Street.

    "He's been around," she said. "I've seen him. I can clearly remember him."

    After investigative delays, funerals finally under way for alleged Bruce McArthur victims

    "Haran Vijayanathan didn’t know Dean Lisowick. But when he heard the slain 47-year-old’s body would be left unclaimed in a local coroner’s office, he couldn’t let it stay there. He’d pick up the remains himself and ensure they were put to rest.

    Mr. Lisowick, a man who struggled through his life with a crack-cocaine addiction, transience and violent outbursts toward some of his relatives, fell off the radar more than a year ago. In January, police listed his name among the grim ranks of eight men allegedly slain by 67-year-old Bruce McArthur....

    Mr. Lisowick’s remains, however, went unclaimed from the coroner’s office. That’s when Mr. Vijayanathan, a community organizer who has spoken out for LGBTQ+ communities throughout the McArthur case, offered to help. On Friday, he will hold a quiet funeral for Mr. Lisowick at the St. James Cemetery. “There was just too much trauma there,” Mr. Vijayanathan said of the situation for Mr. Lisowick’s relatives. He’s been in touch with the family and said he’s doing this to support them, as well...."
