A Jamaican ex-cop wanted in connection with two murders has been included in a list of the eight most wanted fugitives being sought by the Toronto Police Fugitive Squad.
The list is a compilation of suspects who are believed to be hiding in Toronto or nearby communities.
According to CBC News, Peter Silvera, is a former Jamaican police officer wanted in his native country in connection with two deaths in 2004.
It is believed he fled to Canada, specifically to the Toronto area, and is hiding using an alias. He has family in the Brampton area.
The squad, the only dedicated fugitive unit in Canada, has eight investigators who are currently working on nearly 1,000 active files from across Canada and around the world.
The squad normally doesn’t publicize its targets, preferring the element of surprise, according to Det. Sgt. Wayne Banks. But the trails of the suspects on the list have gone cold and police are appealing to the public for information.
