    How sad.
    She was just a kid.
    I'm not sure this kid is a serial killer, however Bruce McArthur IS a serial killer in that same area who was just caught.

    Dude doesn't seem to have a trace of social media, which seems very odd for a 21 year old nowadays.
    When I saw this photo, the first thing I thought was, "He doesn't look like a murderer."

    Then I reminded myself that most people don't.

    Poor Tess 😔 I hope her family get some justice.

    He looks like he could be a Norman Bates bobblehead. His head is way to big for his body.

    wow, I'm glad they found the killer but I'm dying to know the motive.
    the guy looks harmless?! and he was a 'hero' just a while ago?
    Then again Ted Bundy actually saved a couple of lives when he worked in a suicide hotline before he became a serial killer.

    Interesting development in the case:

    Toronto police have upgraded the charge against a man accused of killing 22-year-old Tess Richey from second-degree murder to first-degree murder.

    Richey?s body was discovered by her mother on Nov. 29, in an alleyway outside an under-construction building in Toronto?s Gay Village. She was reported missing four days earlier, last seen in the Church and Wellesley St. area.

    She was killed by neck compression, according to a post-mortem examination. Kalen Schlatter, 21, was arrested Feb. 4 and originally charged with second-degree murder. Police, at the time, believed that the pair hadn?t known each other before that night, and said the killing could fairly be called a ?crime of opportunity.?

    The new charge, of first-degree murder, means police believe the killing was both planned and deliberate. ?A murder is planned if it was conceived of and thought out before it was carried out. A murder is deliberate if the acts involved were intended and purposeful,? criminal lawyer Daniel Brown explained to the Star.

    Brown has no involvement in this case.

    ?The plan to kill need not be elaborate or complicated and the deliberation need not be lengthy. All that matters is that some form of planning to kill the person occurred at some point and that the accused person deliberately carried out the plan successfully,? he said.

    In some rare cases, he added, a murder that wasn?t planned or deliberate could be elevated from second-degree to first-degree murder if it happens while the accused committed ?one of a few enumerated crimes,? including hijacking, sexual assault or forcible confinement.

    Either police had evidence that now suggested the murder was planned and deliberate, or that one of the other specific crimes was occurring at the same time. Police have said the pair were together ?for some time? before Tess was killed, but have not elaborated on what they believe happened. The information is considered evidence.
    Schlatter was still somewhat of a mystery to officers at the time of his last court appearance. He had been on their radar since early in the investigation, but in a press conference, Det. Sgt. Graham Gibson said there was ?quite a bit of work? needed to bring them to the point where an arrest could be made.

    Police had received very little information about the 21-year-old since his arrest, Det. Ted Lioumanis told the Star at College Park court on Feb. 22, and Schlatter?s family had not been involved in the case at that point ? though police knew he lived with them in Toronto prior to his arrest, and worked with his father.

    ?We need to find out more about who he really is,? Lioumanis said at the time. ?We?re still working on that. It?s still early.? He said he was optimistic that ?people will step forward? as the case progresses.

    Schlatter will appear in court Thursday morning.

    No evidence of a serial killer in Church-Wellesley but there are opportunities to 'learn,' police say
    Investigation looks into handling of Tess Richey, Alloura Wells, Andrew Kinsman, Selim Esen's disappearances

    Toronto Police Chief Mark Saunders says the force is looking at ways it can better respond to missing persons investigations after criticism that it isn't doing enough to protect members of the Church and Wellesley community.
    The probe will assess Toronto police's response to Tess Richey's disappearance. The 22-year-old was found dead last month by her mother just doors away from where she went missing in the Church and Wellesley area.

    I still don't understand how you murder someone in a very large city at 21 and 3 months after you're caught there is still only ONE photo that exists of you on the internet.

    Group formed to write rules for review of Toronto police’s handling of missing-persons investigations

    A newly struck working group with representatives of sex workers and the South Asian and LGBTQ communities now has the job of drawing up rules for an external review of how Toronto police have handled missing-persons investigations.

    A motion passed at the Toronto Police Services Board on Wednesday empowers the review, which is expected to be led by a sitting judge, to determine whether “systemic concerns” such as police bias could be an issue in missing-persons investigations.

    “This, I think, is an important first step in addressing something that think has been searing for the entire community,” Toronto Mayor John Tory said after the board voted to approve the working group. While he admitted that the panel, and the eventual review, would be “limited in what we can proceed with,” he nevertheless said he was encouraged by the fact that it reflects the communities that have been most affected.
