Toronto’s gay community is worried about a series of disappearances of gay people from the city.
Fears are growing over the disappearances of Andrew Kinsman, Skanda Navaratnam, Abdulbasir Faizi, Raymond Burnett and Majeed Kayhan.
Toronto Police confirmed they are treating Kinsman’s disappearance as suspicious. “Investigators are aware of the similarities, but there aren’t enough facts to connect the cases,” said Const. Allyson Douglas-Cook, adding there are no leads on his whereabouts.
Mindful of the Stephen Port case in the UK, the Toronto gay community is concerned. “These people going missing are customers that support out community. It’s concerned and reminds us all that we need to take precautions,” a concerned citizen told Global News. “We all see the links. They’re all gay men in their 40s, and it’s frightening because it could be someone in our community.”
