Toronto police are looking for two witnesses, caught on security camera, in relation to a February murder on Jane Street.
Detective Sergeant Gary Giroux updated media on the city’s 13th homicide, Friday, and says investigators are hoping to “shame” two direct witnesses to come forward with more detail.
“I think these are individuals, for the time being, are reluctant to become participants.” said Giroux “But they’re going to be participants in one way or another.”
20 year old Kiowa Wind McComb and his brother were both stabbed at Gucci’s Bar and Grill on Jane street, back on February 9, 2016 at 2:02 A.M.
Investigators say Kiowa’s brother fled the scene and knocked on doors looking for help, while police believe the perpetrators likely tried to hide Kiowa’s body as evidence points to the body was dragged on Jane street.
Both McComb and his brother were eventually found and rushed to hospital. Kiowa suffered fatal stab wounds to his neck, while his brother received non-life threatening wounds to his abdomen.
35 year old Toronto man, Andre Appleton, has been charged with second degree murder and attempted murder in connection to the altercation.
Security camera footage shows two other individuals, standing just feet away, witnessing the altercation. Police released photos of the man and a woman, Friday, who are believed to frequent bars near Jane Street and Lawrence Avenue.
Giroux believes the woman’s name might be “Layla”.
Anyone who can identify this man and woman, or provide information on their whereabouts, is asked to call police immediately at 416-808-7400 or Crime Stoppers 416-222-TIPS (8477).
