Yesterday Toronto police said they were counting on the surveillance camera images to help them catch Bly Markis’s killer.
Around 1 a.m. today a man turned himself in to police in the company of his lawyer. Martin Horacio De Narvaez, 21 is now charged with first-degree murder. Denarvaez made his first court appearance Tuesday afternoon at Old City Hall.
Using images from five different cameras belonging to two surveillance networks, police pinpointed the final movements of the victim and suspect, who were last photographed together walking into an emergency stairwell exit. It was the third time in the past month that surveillance cameras have captured images of a suspect leading to murder charges.
A relative of a man allegedly caught on security camera near where Bly Markis was found murdered recognized the face and helped convince the suspect to turn himself in, police said Tuesday.
