As part of their investigation, OPP have released dashcam footage of the two suspects, along with a video from March 3, 2020, depicting three males at Murison Park in Scarborough in a black Audi sedan. OPP believe the individuals attempted to burn several items of clothes that investigators believe were worn by the suspects on the day of the shooting.

In May 2022, OPP made four arrests in the investigation:

  • Jeremy Brown, 26, of Ajax, was arrested and charged with second-degree murder and failure to comply with conditions of a release order.
  • Dawson Tullock, 21, of Oshawa, was charged with accessory after the fact to murder.
  • Jordan Brown, 31, and Oswald Brown, 76, both of Ajax, Ont., were each charged with two counts of party to the offence of failure to comply with release conditions. They were released and will appear in court in Lindsay on June 23.

OPP say a $50,000 reward remains in place for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for Tobin’s death.
