Toronto police seek two suspects in murder of Vaughan man
Toronto police are looking for two suspects in the murder of a Vaughan man whose body was found three days after he disappeared.
Clyde Marshall, 36, and Sabrina Chouart, 27, are both wanted for first-degree murder, police said Saturday.
The suspects are wanted in connection with the death of Sina Parsi, a 32-year-old roofing contractor from Vaughan. Parsi disappeared Tuesday after attending a local soccer game.
His body was found three days later, in the Jane Street and St. Clair Avenue West area.
Marshall is described as a white male, standing six feet tall and weighing 145 pounds. He has brown hair, blue eyes, and a thin build. He has tattoos on the right side of his neck, as well as a tattoo on his right arm.
Chouart is described as a white female, standing five-foot-seven and weighing 130 pounds. She has brown, shoulder-length hair and a thin build.
Police believe the suspects are also travelling with a large, brown dog.
“If they are listening to this broadcast, they should take points to surrender themselves,” Detective Shawn Mahoney said.
Police did not release a cause of death, or say whether Parsi and the suspects were known to each other.
“These individuals have ties to the Gatineau, Quebec area and New Brunswick,” Mahoney said. “We believe the suspects have at had at least a 24- to 48-hour window to leave the area.”
Police say they have a motive for the murder, but are not releasing it at this time.
On Thursday, officers traced Parsi's cellphone signal to a strip mall near Jane Street and Eglinton Avenue West, where they found his car. His wallet was found in nearby Smyth Park.
Parsi’s family said police told them security footage from near the strip mall showed Parsi entering a bank, withdrawing money, and walking toward a wooded area.
Police could not confirm how much money Parsi withdrew, or if money was missing from the wallet when it was found.
Speaking to CTV Toronto on Friday, Parsi's wife described her husband as her "best friend."
"He’s everything to me," she said.
