On Monday, a dead body was found in a garbage bag near Eastern and Berkshire avenues of Toronto. The person who discovered the bag called 911 at about 1:30 p.m. Police believe someone used a collapsible shopping cart to move the body, which they say showed obvious signs of trauma and dismemberment.

Police have now identified the body. The victim is Tien Ly, 46, of Toronto. Police is right now searching for victim’s son. They said they cannot locate Ly's son, Dallas Ly, 20, and are concerned for his well-being. He lived with his mother in a condo building near Carlaw Avenue and Dundas Avenue East, according to Const. Alex Li, spokesperson for the Toronto Police Service.

Alex Li also said, "Please contact Toronto police immediately. We want to speak with you... It is very unfortunate that this incident has occurred, but ... you are an important part of this case. And we need to find you.”

Tien Ly is Toronto’s 17th homicide victim this year. Police also urged anyone who saw a person pushing a foldable shopping cart filled with black garbage bags between 10 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. on Monday to come forward.
