On Dec. 3, 1988 at around 7 a.m., a cyclist riding his bicycle on Colborne Lodge Drive near High Park discovered the body of 28 year old Richard Thomas Moore, in the grass, just off the roadway.
Moore lived in the Parkdale area and was also employed as a labourer at a nearby business. According to police, Moore had been beaten and stabbed multiple times.
Moore’s empty wallet was found several hundred yards from where his body was discovered.
The victim was last seen on the evening of Dec. 2, 1988 at the Edgewater Hotel near Roncesvalles Avenue and Queen Street West.
A knife believed to be the murder weapon was found at the scene, and according to homicide cold case Det. Sgt. Stacy Gallant, “robbery appears to have been the motive”
