Internet dating killer meme
A meme with the faces of missing local men, all presumed to be gay who went missing from the Church and Wellesley Village, leading people to believe they are all connected.Now, the Toronto Police Criminal Investigations Bureau (CIB) of 51 Division, which covers the Village, has set up a special task force to look into the disappearances and determine whether or not they are indeed linked.While most Memes will literally leave you rolling on the floor laughing, some of them are downright creepy.
The other recent disappearance being investigated by the new police task force is the April 15 disappearance of 43-year-old Selim Esen, last seen on Ted Rogers Way and Bloor Street East.
Or, they are men who frequent gay bars in the Village, who may or may not be closeted.
The faces of missing local men have been posted around the Church and Wellesley Village for more than a month.
As a testament to the fact that we’ll never really understand our collective sense of humour, Insanity Wolf began in 2009 and spiralled off to popularity.
The same wolf head that appears in the meme was very popular in forums as an avatar, in stock photos, or even on a cover of Arthur Conan Doyle’s the Creepy Ugly Guy is still around.All three are linked primarily by their dark skin tone, their immigrant status, and for being known to “frequent the gay Village.” Police at 51 Division launched “Project Houston,” and for 18 months searched searched cell phone, bank, and social media records, canvassed the Village, and interviewed friends and family of the missing men—but they have turned up cold.
