A Canada-wide warrant remains in effect for a suspect wanted in connection with two 2017 homicides which occurred in the City of Vaughan and the City of Hamilton.

March 14, 2023 is the sixth anniversary of the tragic death of Mila BARBERI, 28, of Vaughan. On Tuesday, March 14, 2017, at approximately 4:12 p.m., York Regional Police responded to reports of a shooting on Caster Avenue in the area of Weston Road and Highway 7. Officers arrived on scene and located a male victim and an unresponsive female victim suffering from gunshot wounds. BARBERI was transported to hospital where she was pronounced deceased. The adult male victim was also transported to hospital with minor injuries but recovered.

Through the investigations, officers linked this homicide with the murder of Angelo MUSITANO who was shot and killed as he arrived home in his pick-up truck on May 2, 2017 in Hamilton.

That resulted in a multi-jurisdictional investigation dubbed project SCOPA, involving York Regional Police, the Hamilton Police Service and the Hamilton-Niagara detachment of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.

A Canada-wide warrant was issued for the arrest of now 32-year-old Daniel TOMASSETTI in connection with these incidents. Investigators are asking anyone with information on his location to come forward. He is also being urged to consult with a lawyer and turn himself in.

The Hamilton Police Service Board has offered a $50,000 cash reward for information leading to the arrest and/ or conviction of Daniel TOMASSETTI
