Police are thanking the community for help identifying two brothers wanted in the murder of 17-year-old Saint-Lucia born Trevor Seraphine following the arrest of Curtis Murray, 25.
They are still seeking help to find his brother wanted for first-degree murder. Corey Murrary, 29, is described as Black, 5-foot-8, 167 lb. with black hair and brown eyes.
Homicide Det. Tam Bui said, “I am appealing to community members who knowingly purchased any of these items to please return them to 23 Division (5230 Finch Ave. W.).” He is referring to a block sale, weekend event poster at 44 Willowridge Rd. N. on March 20, advertising a sale where evidence in connection with the murder of Seraphine may have been sold.
He said anyone who returns the items will not face criminal charges or get into trouble.
“You will only be assisting Trevor’s family,” said Bui.
Seraphine was shot about 2 a.m. at 44 Willowridge Rd., Etobicoke, on March 21 after an altercation with two men. Bui said that “Trevor was a recent immigrant from St. Lucia. His only mistake was walking from one friend’s building to another.”
Bui said Curtis Murray was arrested on Monday at approximately 5:45 p.m. by Provincial Repeat Offender Parole Enforcement officers in Mississauga.
According to investigators, Curtis possesses an active Canadian passport while Corey, a federal parolee, does not. Police are warning acquaintances not to lend Corey a passport or assist in harbouring him.
“Anyone who assists, harbours or conceals this fugitive will be charged with being an accessory after the fact to murder,” said Bui. He added that the Canadian Border Services Agency has been notified in case Corey tries to leave Canada. He said two people have already been charged with accessory after the fact to murder in connection with the case.
Meanwhile, Seraphine’s relatives are taking the news of the arrest and manhunt in a bitter-sweet way, happy for one arrest but still in pain. They are making arrangements for their mother to come to Canada.
