The missing men, a mystery that has baffled family and friends for years
- by admin
An investigation into a missing men’s death in Ontario has reopened a mystery of one of the worst cases of missing men in the province’s history.
The RCMP, Toronto police and the Ontario Provincial Police say they are looking into the death of Matthew J. Williams, 44, in May 2011.
Williams was found dead on a Toronto street in May of that year.
Williams’ body was discovered by a woman in the street and taken to a nearby hospital.
The woman, who cannot be named, told police that Williams died of “asphyxia due to alcohol consumption.”
Williams was never identified and his remains were never found.
His family said they have no idea what happened to him.
“He is not dead,” said his brother, Christopher Williams, speaking from his home in Toronto.
“This is the biggest mystery of my life.
I have no answers.”
Williams’ family said he was not suicidal.
His brother, who is also the chairman of the Toronto Police Association, said Williams had been homeless for years.
The police told CBC News that they have received numerous calls about the case and are working with the family to “address any concerns” and have no further comment.
They say the investigation is still ongoing and there are “ongoing efforts to identify and locate the person(s) responsible for the death.”
Family members say they have a lot of unanswered questions about the death.
The case has been an ongoing family matter for years and they are still looking for answers, said Christopher Williams.
His sister, Tanisha, who was one of his primary caregivers at the time of his death, said she still can’t understand why it took so long to solve the case.
“I feel like I never got the closure that I felt that I deserved,” she said.
Tanishae Williams said the family is still hoping to get closure from the RCMP and Toronto police, who were initially skeptical about their theory.
“They were really hesitant to say anything at all about this because they didn’t want to jeopardize the investigation,” she told CBC.
The family has set up a GoFundMe page and said they are “very thankful” to the public.
In a statement to CBC News, Toronto Police said the investigation has been completed.
“The investigation is ongoing and we have not determined who is responsible for this tragic death,” it said.
Williams family members said they had been hoping to have some closure. “
As we are working to piece together the facts surrounding the death, we are grateful for the public’s continued support and for the support of our members, who continue to be dedicated to the investigation.”
Williams family members said they had been hoping to have some closure.
“It has been so long, it has been a lot,” said Christopher.
“At the same time, we have to keep pushing forward and trying to find out the truth.
That’s what we want to do.”
Williams is survived by his wife, his parents, a sister and his nephew.
