Speaking to reporters at a press conference on Monday, March 5, detective Sergeant Hank Idsinga said that previous attempts to determine the identity of this person were unsuccessful, so the police chose to show the photo to the General public in the hope that someone will be able to know a person on it.
"I do not want to release this picture and am doing so as a last resort", said Detective Sergeant Hank Idsinga in a press conference in Toronto on Monday.
