New developments Quang Lu

CTV Toronto

Toronto homicide detectives believe a north Scarborough home is where a reputed gangster was killed before his body was encased in a cement-filled barrel and dumped in Lake Ontario.

Police showed up with a search warrant late Monday at 12 Shallowford Ct. to look for evidence in the case of Quang Lu, 47.

They are working on the theory that Lu was murdered in the basement, with his body taken to the garage for placement in the barrel, CTV Toronto’s Jim Junkin reported. Six years ago, the home was the site of an ecstasy drug bust. Currently it is used as a rooming house, he said.

Lu went missing in November 2007 after returning from a trip to China. His 2004 BMW also went missing and still hasn’t been recovered. At the time of Lu’s murder, the home was owned by someone in Shanghai, China. The post is here.
