South Simcoe Police Ask Toronto Gay Community For Help In Death Of 37-Year-Old Man

South Simcoe Police will call on the Toronto gay community on Thursday in connection with a murder case involving a body found in Bradford last month.

In a press release, police said they would provide an update on the death of 37-year-old Mojtaba Shabani at 1 p.m.

They will release a new photo of Shabani and appeal to the LGBTQ2S+ community in Toronto.

The remains of Shabani were discovered on April 15 by kayakers in the Bradford Canal, near Canal and Simcoe Roads.

The cause of his death has not been disclosed, but police deemed it a homicide after an autopsy.

Police said Shabani had moved from Iran to Canada in 2010. They added that he had ties to Toronto and that he “appeared to lead a transient lifestyle”.

Police previously released descriptions of three vehicles they said were in Shabani’s name. They are a gray Honda Accord from 2004 with registration number ‘CHAW891’, a blue Honda Civic from 2001 with registration number ‘BVHR490’ and a red Volkswagen from 2003 with registration number ‘CFPC027’.

Police continue to ask those with information to contact them or Crime Stoppers anonymously.
