Toronto police have identified a woman found dead in a black garbage bag in Leslieville this week.
Police said on Wednesday the body found near Eastern and Berkshire avenues on Monday was that of Tien Ly, 46, of Toronto. The body was left near a sidewalk on the south side of Eastern Avenue, west of Leslie Street.
The person who discovered the bag called 911 at about 1:30 p.m. Police believe someone used a collapsible shopping cart to move the body, which they say showed obvious signs of trauma and dismemberment. The case is considered a homicide.
Police also said they cannot locate Ly’s son, Dallas Ly, 20, and are concerned for his well-being. They said he is not a suspect.
Police believe he lived with his mother in a condo building near Carlaw Avenue and Dundas Avenue East, according to Const. Alex Li, spokesperson for the Toronto Police Service.
“Officers are concerned because of what they found at the residence,” Li said.
Li said he has a message for Dallas Ly: “Please contact Toronto police immediately. We want to speak with you… It is very unfortunate that this incident has occurred, but … you are an important part of this case. And we need to find you.”
On Tuesday, police released images of Tien Ly’s fingernails and toenails, which were painted with a unique pattern, and images of the long-sleeved, red Armani Exchange shirt she was wearing.
Investigators released them hoping the public could help police to identify her. Li said police appreciated the support they received.
“In this case, we were successful in confirming the identity,” he said.
Ly is Toronto’s 17th homicide victim of the year.
On Tuesday, police also urged anyone who saw a person pushing a foldable shopping cart filled with black garbage bags between 10 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. on Monday to come forward. And they want anyone who was driving eastbound or westbound on Eastern Avenue at that time and who has dashboard camera video to contact them.
