Police are seeking the public’s help in finding a 28-year-old woman wanted on a Canada-wide warrant in the gruesome killing of a Toronto man.
George Fawell’s body was found along railroad tracks behind the Jimmie Simpson Community Centre on Queen Street East on Aug. 24, 2012, after he was the victim of a lengthy attack that likely continued after he died, according to police.
The 24-year-old man’s hands were tied behind his back when he was found dead and he had suffered stab wounds to the chest and chopping wounds to the neck and head in a killing that involved multiple weapons, police said previously.
A veteran homicide investigator described the slaying as an “emotionally-driven” and personal attack that was one of the worst “sharp-force injury homicides” he has seen.
Police announced Wednesday that they are looking for 28-year-old Ashley Andrews, who is wanted for accessory after the fact to murder and two counts of attempting to obstruct justice.
Anyone with information about Andrews’ whereabouts is asked to call detectives at 416-808-7400 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416-222-TIPS (8477).
Andrews is the second suspect to be identified in the case.
Last week, police arrested 39-year-old Lori Ann Crook of Toronto and charged her with first-degree murder and forcible confinement.
