On June 25, 1988, Nasir Hirji was found murdered inside his apartment. Mr. Hirji was a single gay man who was known to have many relationships. It would appear that whoever did this had known Nasir and killed him before stealing some of his possessions.
In 1988, many in the LQBTQ community were secretive about their sexual orientation and may have been reluctant to come forward at the time of the murder for a variety of reasons. Investigators hope that changing societal attitudes may prompt someone to come forward with new information.
Anyone with information about this homicide is being asked to contact S/Sgt Dave Oleniuk of the Homicide Unit at 905-546-3829.
