By Wendy Gillis Crime Reporter Sun., May 20, 2018 When the man accused of being the Golden State Killer was arrested in Sacramento, Calif., late last month, worldwide attention was drawn to the enterprising use of DNA technology that helped solve the decades-old case. Among those watching were detectives in Toronto police’s cold case unit. “We were on the phone the next week, trying to contact the investigators,” said Det. Sgt. Stacy Gallant. “I wanted to ask them: how did you do it? What did you need? I wanted to find out the exact process that they took.” Read more: Golden State Killer search led investigators to wrong man in 2017 Article Continued Below DNA brings arrest in Golden State Killer crimes from ’70s and ’80s Four more murder counts filed in Golden State Killer case In what Gallant thinks may be a law enforcement first, California police — including an investigator who’d been … [Read more...] about What can Toronto police learn from the Golden State Killer case?

By Liz Robbins The New York Times Sat., April 28, 2018 When I suggested to my Beatles-obsessed husband that we should go to Liverpool, England, I won points for the rest of our marriage. What I didn’t realize until later, when I was standing on a certain lane behind the shelter in the middle of the roundabout, was that I would actually enjoy myself. Very strange. I had wondered if, in making such a pilgrimage, there would be a place for the nonreligious. But when slanted sunbeams fell on Eleanor Rigby’s headstone as if on cue, I shivered a little and smiled. My husband, Ricky, knows all the answers (at least when it comes to the Beatles), so I let him engage in trivia contests with our tour guide in Liverpool. Freed from the tug of minutiae, I was able to marvel in the phenomenon of the Fab Four: how one band united the world, and continues to do so, 50 years after the release of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. Read more: Liverpool houses … [Read more...] about Liverpool’s Magical Mystery Tour takes you on a journey through Beatles lore

By Katie Daubs Feature Writer Fri., Feb. 23, 2018 Al Carbone chose from a menu of five angry hands. One was angular, and looked like a modern city skyline, which he liked, but it wasn’t direct enough, when it came to the King St. transit pilot and how he felt about the politicians at city hall. A middle-finger ice sculpture. “Best investment I ever made,” he says. Chef Carl Dahl watched it come to life on a cold Friday in January. Dahl didn’t know what it was, until one part of the sculpture kept rising. That’s funny, he thought. That will get some attention. Then his phone started buzzing. Kit Kat’s sleepy Twitter account percolated with anger. Dahl tried to explain that it wasn’t directed at transit riders, but that didn’t work, so he started blocking people. “They’re not our customers,” Carbone chimes in, from the front table, where he has recently finished his sausage and penne pasta, his … [Read more...] about King St. middle finger ‘best investment I ever made.’ Man behind sculpture has never been shy about serving up penne and his thoughts
