About a half-dozen officers with Durham Regional Police spent several hours yesterday searching near Valley Farm Road in Pickering for clues after the body of a 23-year-old man was found inside a 2000 grey Toyota Corolla Tuesday afternoon.
There were obvious signs of trauma to the body, but the exact details of what caused the man’s death were not being released, police said.
Police identified the man inside the car as Khristian Gerri Ottley. He lived in the area, police said.
"We don’t know where the killer or killers are from," said Sgt. Paul McCurbin.
An autopsy is scheduled today in Toronto, police said.
