Fourth arrest in slaying of philanthropist

Toronto police say they have arrested a fourth suspect in the May 2007 murder of philanthropist Glen Davis.

Toronto police say they have arrested a fourth suspect in the May 2007 murder of philanthropist Glen Davis.


The 66-year-old multimillionaire and environmentalist was shot to death
in a parking garage at Eglinton Ave. and Mt. Pleasant in midtown
Toronto.

Jesse Smith, 24, of Ajax, was arrested yesterday and charged with first-degree murder. He will appear in court today.

Three suspects – including one of Davis's nephews – were arrested in March and charged with first-degree murder.


Davis was assaulted by a man with a baseball bat in 2005 outside his
office and police have said that attack and the murder were linked.


In 1993, Davis – who inherited $100-million from his father – escaped
from an Air Canada jet that burned to the ground at the Cincinnati
airport.

After the crash, Davis began liquidating much of the
business empire his father left him, and began a pattern of lavish
giving to environmental causes.
