On February 15, 1984, Frank Lightheart and a friend were returning to Mr. Lightheart’s Binbrook residence. Upon arriving at the house, Mr. Lightheart noticed that the curtains were different from the way they had been when he had left the house. He ran into the house thinking someone was stealing his drug stash. His friend heard him yell something inside and then heard shots fired. Another friend then arrived and they both managed to pull safely out of the driveway. They saw a 1977-78 dark blue vehicle leave the property. They backed away and went to the police station to report what they heard. No emergency call was made. Police attended and found Mr. Lightheart dead from several gunshot wounds inside his home. Mr. Lightheart was known to be involved in the drug trade and investigators believe his murder was the result of this association.
Police are well aware of Mr. Lightheart’s associates at the time, with some of them still involved in the drug trade today.
Anyone with information about this homicide is being asked to contact S/Sgt Dave Oleniuk in Major Crime at 905-546-3829.
