Suspect arrested
Police won't say if they've established a motive

Police arrested a suspect and seized a vehicle yesterday as they probed the killing of a Halifax man visiting the city.
The body of Wayne Fulton DAHR, 54, was found late Wednesday night in a walkup apartment at 24 Gammage Street, north of Oxford Street.
The Nova Scotia man had been visiting London for the past month, police said.
Yesterday afternoon, about 17 hours after police were first alerted to concerns about DAHR, an unidentified suspect was arrested.
Tight-lipped police weren't talking about the suspect, or who rents the apartment where the body was found.
But the building registry shows an occupant at unit 306, where the body was found, with the surname DAHR, suggesting the dead man had been visiting a relative.
Police had already found the victim's vehicle, a PT Cruiser, blocks away from the apartment building where his body was found, near a four-storey walkup at 1284 Gramercy Park Place, off Brydges Street.
The vehicle was seized for forensic examination, said Const. Amy Phillipo.
DAHR was found dead with "obvious trauma," police said, declining to be more specific.
Police wouldn't say if they've established a motive for the killing.
An autopsy is expected within two days, they said.
Residents of the Gammage Street apartment complex said they saw police knocking on doors early yesterday and asking questions.
Residents in the clutch of six, three-storey walkups were clearly taken by surprise.
"A homicide? Really? Here? Who?" asked one.
None of nearly 24 residents interviewed said they heard anything unusual before police arrived about 11 p.m. Wednesday to "check the welfare" of someone in the apartment.
"The police knocked on my door around 1 a.m. or 1: 30 a.m. and asked if I'd heard anything, but I'm in the basement with a floor between us, so I wouldn't have heard anything," said Darren EEDEN, EEDEN and other residents in the well-kept complex said the area is generally quiet, but for the occasional loud party.
"You'll see some sketchy characters around sometimes, but I haven't seen any violence," EEDEN said.
EEDEN and other residents said they suspect a few drug dealers live in the area.
Curious residents came and went, watching from windows and balconies as police and reporters worked the scene.
Officers searched on rooftops and through dumpsters and the grass around the apartment buildings for clues.
A lock to the building. smashed and broken, lay on the sidewalk. Police also removed an object from a clothing bin they searched.
Anyone with information is asked to call police at 519-661-5670.
