On August 25, 2016, Toronto Police received a 911 call around 1 p.m. for a man bleeding heavily from a suspected stab wound on the residential street in Scarborough.
When officers arrived, they found the lifeless bodies of three individuals. A fourth victim was taken to hospital. They also took one person into custody.
Initially the police refused to reveal if there was any sort of relationship between those involved.
Toronto Emergency Services later confirmed two men and one woman were killed and the fourth victim suffered only minor injuries.
In the days following the killings, the public would learn that the victims suffered fatal crossbow bolt wounds. And that the victims and accused were indeed related. Who the accused was and details of his past criminal history would shock this quiet suburban community.
