Hamilton Police Identify Remains Found in Windermere Basin

Hamilton Police have identified the human remains found in a Hamilton Park last month.

In October 2019, a single bone was discovered by a citizen in Windemere Basin Park in Hamilton. At that time, Detectives from Hamilton Police conducted an investigation and the remains were sent to the Centre of Forensic Sciences. The bone was tested and the identity of the person was not able to be determined at that time.

On October 6, 2020, Hamilton Police attended another location within Windermere Basin Park where human remains were discovered. These remains were sent to the Centre of Forensic Sciences. Further testing, including dental records, has identified the human remains as 26-year-old Jammar Allison of Toronto. The investigation to date has determined Mr. Allison is the victim of a homicide.

On June 1, 2018, Jammar Allison, was abducted from a parking lot located at 680 Rexdale Blvd in Toronto by what is believed to be three unknown suspects. The abductors used a black Dodge Caravan. Toronto Police investigated this matter as a kidnapping and have been investigating Allison’s disappearance for the past two years.

Jammar's family is devastated by the news and have requested privacy as they grieve the loss of their son and brother. 

Hamilton Police Major Crime Unit has now taken carriage of this homicide and is asking anyone with information on the abduction and murder of Jammar Allison to call Det. Geoff Burbidge at 905-546-2288 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or www.crimestoppershamilton.com.
