Three Years Later and Killer Still Free
It's been three years since 27-year-old Christopher Skinner was brutally murdered as he walked home from his sister's birthday party. Skinner was walking in the Adelaide and Victoria Street area in the early morning hours of October 18th, 2009 when he was involved in a confrontation with a group of men in a SUV.
During the confrontation the young man, who was aspiring to follow in his father's footsteps and become a lawyer, was beaten down to the ground then run over by the gang of thugs and left for dead. Christopher Skinner was pronounced dead in hospital.
Toronto Police say the black SUV sped off eastbound on Adelaide Street, but so far there have been no arrests and no suspect descriptions.
Thursday, members of the Skinner family and Toronto police re-announced two separate rewards being offered for information leading to the 27-year-old's killers. The family is offering $100,000, while Toronto police is offering $50,000.
Toronto Police recovered surveillance footage of the Black SUV speeding away, as well as footage of Christopher Skinner trying to hail a cab.
One theory is that Skinner may have accidentally hit or touched the SUV prior to the confrontation.
The Skinner family has created their own Facebook page, Twitter, YouTube and Google+ accounts appealing for information that can solve this case.
