Suspects arrested in Sina Parsi death


TORONTO – Toronto police say two suspects wanted in connection with the death of Vaughan, Ont., man Sina Parsi have been arrested.

Police say Clyde Marshall, a former resident of New Brunswick, and Sabrina Chouart of Gatineau, Que., were arrested at a Walmart in Niagara Falls around 9:30 p.m. Monday.

They are scheduled to appear in court on Tuesday.

Police say shoppers spotted the pair and quickly called Niagara Regional police.

Parsi, who was 32, had disappeared after he left a soccer game on June 9th.

Marshall and Chouart have been on the run since.

Parsi’s black Dodge Ram pickup truck were discovered at a Tim Hortons in Toronto’s west end after he was reported missing by his wife.

On Monday, police released a video of all three walking into a nearby apartment building just after midnight on June 10.

Det. Sgt. Michael Patterson said Parsi went into the apartment “willingly.” In the video, Parsi walks towards the apartment’s back door with Marshall and Chouart, pausing to look up, before heading inside.

“We know that at 4:10 a.m., Sabrina and Clyde left, and Sina was inside already deceased,” Patterson said.

Police released video of the pair leaving at that time with a big, brown dog. They initially thought that meant Marshall and Chouart would likely be hitchhiking. But the dog was later found abandoned in Toronto.

The pair has been on the run since. Police issued arrest warrants for first degree murder when Parsi’s body was discovered a few days later.

During the manhunt, police said they received hundreds of tips, including many “unconfirmed sightings” that stretched from northern Ontario to British Columbia.

Niagara police would not comment on the arrest, instead directing questions to Toronto police, which said it will provide more details Tuesday.
