The Cold Cases of York Region: Vincenzo Raco

A grey-haired man with a moustache and glasses

FILE No.: 2005-25000

Vincenzo Raco was parked outside of a doctor's office in Woodbridge when he was shot in the head and killed around 8 p.m. on February 9, 2005. 

The 58-year-old Brampton resident was sitting inside his grey 2005 Ford Freestyle SUV in the parking lot at 8077 Islington Ave., between Willis Road and Woodbridge Avenue. That's when he was approached by his killer, who ran eastbound through the plaza after murdering Vincenzo. 

The suspect, described as a white, clean-shaven man, roughly 5'11", thin and wearing a green, hooded jacket and toque, may have fled the scene in a dark Honda or Acura.
