Raymond Moore, 42 of Toronto is accused in the June 13, 2018 beating death of Joseph Perron in Parkdale

A suspect has been identified in last week’s beating death of a man in Parkdale.

Raymond Moore, 42, of Toronto, is wanted on a Canada-wide warrant for second-degree murder in the June 13 assault of 51-year-old Joseph Perron behind a building at 103 West Lodge Ave., Toronto Police said Tuesday.

Paramedics found Perron in a field near Lansdowne Ave. and Queen St. W. around 8:30 p.m. He was transported to St. Joseph’s Hospital, where he died.

On Friday, police released images captured on security camera of a suspect.

Parkdale residents have criticized police for the length of time they took to respond to an initial 911 call about an assault in progress.

Police say they were called to the area around 8.30 p.m., but area residents claim it was at least two hours before any police were on the scene.

By then, medics had taken Perron to hospital.

Police say Moore is known to frequent the Parkdale area and should be considered violent and not approached.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 416-808-7400 or Crime Stoppers.
