The Cold Cases of York Region: Albert Peacock

An elderly man with glasses and a hatFILE No.: 1991-135814

Albert Peacock was a social man. The Toronto east ender was a member of the Second Mile Club of Toronto, a senior's social club in downtown Toronto. 

His body, however, was found by hunters in a lonely, secluded wooded area west of Lake Ridge Road and Third Concession in Georgina on December 2, 1991. 

An autopsy later determined that the 76-year-old had been strangled to death. When his body was discovered, he was wearing a tan raincoat, pink dress shirt and beige dress pants. He was white, 5'8", 170 pounds and had no teeth. He wore glasses and had thin white hair. 

Aside from the Second Mile Club, Albert also frequented Noah's Arc Tavern at 277 Danforth Ave., Toronto. On November 25, 1991, he was taken from the bar to Toronto East General Hospital by ambulance. 

At 9:30 p.m., he was seen alive for the last time, walking out of the hospital.
