South Simcoe Police to ask Toronto’s gay community for help in death of 37-year-old man

South Simcoe Police are set Thursday to ask for the help of Toronto’s gay community in connection with a homicide case involving a body found in Bradford last month.

In a news release, police said they will be providing an update at 1 pm on the death of 37-year-old Mojtaba Shabani.

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

Shabani’s remains were discovered by kayakers in the Bradford Canal, in the area of ​​Canal and Simcoe Roads, on April 15.

The cause of his death has not been revealed, but police consider it a homicide following an autopsy.

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

Police previously released the descriptions of three vehicles they said were registered to Shabani. They are a 2004 gray Honda Accord with the license plate ‘CHAW891,’ a 2001 blue Honda Civic with a license plate ‘BVHR490,’ and a 2003 red Volkswagen with a license plate ‘CFPC027.’

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