At about 9:45 p.m. on May 20, 1982, Allan Kinloch was driving with his friend on York Blvd after exiting the 403 towards Hamilton. Allan was in the front passenger seat when another car pulled up beside them and fired four shots into the car, killing Allan. The large dark green car, with two or three males inside, then did a U-turn and sped off towards Burlington. Allan’s friend sped into Hamilton and flagged down a couple of patrol officers at York and Bay. Allan was rushed to the Hamilton General Hospital, where he was pronounced dead a few minutes later. Allan had been a member of the Satan’s Choice Motorcycle Club and this seemed to be a part of the ‘biker war’ that occurred in Hamilton during the 1980s. It is also a possibility that he was killed in retribution for a dispute within his own gang.
Unfortunately, as in many murders linked to criminal organizations, there were few witnesses willing to cooperate at the time. It is hoped that with the passage of time that people who were originally reluctant to speak with the police will now come forward.
Anyone with information about this homicide is being asked to contact S/Sgt Dave Oleniuk in Major Crime at 905-546-3829.
