On July 16, 1980, the skeletal remains of this Caucasian, adult male were found in a bush area on the east side of the 11th Concession, 1km north of Steeles Avenue in Markham. This male is believed to be between the ages of 30 to 50 years. His living height is estimated to be between 5'1"-5'5". Dark staining of his posterior teeth suggest that he may have been a smoker. Found in the vicinity of the remains were some clothing and effects, which may or may not be associated with the deceased. The clothing found included a pair of "Brittania" women's jeans (waist 30 inches, inseam 29 inches); a pair of white, ribbed socks; and a pair of red and pink high-heeled shoes. A compact containing powder and mirror was also found nearby. This male was believed to have been dead for 6 months to five years.

Police seek identity of cold-case victim

ONTARIO DOE: WM, 20-50 - Skeletal remains found in Markham, Ontario - July 16, 1980 - Possibly Transgender H1

Did a gay serial killer prowl the streets of Toronto?

While making a pit stop on a rural road near Markham, Ontario, in 1980, a motorist stumbled across the skeletal remains of a young man.

Along with the body, police found a pair of ladies’ red high-heeled shoes, white socks, jeans and a powder compact with mirror. All items are believed to have belonged to the victim. He – she – was a cross-dresser.

The victim was white and between 25 and 40 years old when he was killed. He was approximately 5’6’’ with a slim build, weighing between 100 and 120 pounds and had dark brown hair. He was quietly buried in a pauper’s grave, and to this day his identity remains a mystery.

On Dec 1 York Regional Police unveiled a sculpture of what his face may have looked like in life along with a sketch of how he may have been dressed before he was murdered.

This is just one of at least three cold cases involving victims with ties to Toronto’s gay communities who were murdered under similar circumstances.

Forensic sculptures, like the one of the Markham man, led police to identify Richard Hovey and Eric Jones who disappeared from Toronto in 1967 and 1968 and whose remains sat unidentified until recently.

James Henry Greenidge, who is in prison in BC for a 1981 murder, may be connected to all of the killings. Now in his 70s, he is up for parole in 2010.

It was so long ago, but let’s give the Markham man his name back. Do you recognize him? Do you remember anything about Greenidge?
