Two men from Ajax and another from Oshawa are charged in connection the the 2020 murder of Alex Tobin in Omemee.

Tobin, 18 of Omemee, was found shot in his King St E apartment on February 18, 2020. After his death two men were filmed on security cameras leaving the building.

The pair hopped into a getaway car, driven by a third man, and took off down Hwy 7. Two men were briefly arrested sometime later, but were quickly released.

On March 3, mere weeks after Tobin’s murder, three men were seen in a black Audi burning suspected evidence in Scarborough’s Murison Park. Police believe the men were disposing of the clothes worn during the murder.

Police have put out multiple calls for public aid in the intervening years. In April 2020, police released several image stills of security footage of the scene showing the men as they left.

More than two years later, police issued another public plea in April. A month to the day after their appeal the OPP announced the arrest of Jeremy Brown, 26 of Ajax, who was charged with second-degree murder and two counts of failure to comply with release conditions.

Now three others have joined Brown in custody charged with assisting in Tobin’s murder.

Firstly Dawson Tullock of Oshawa is charged with accessory to murder after the fact. Meanwhile, Oswald Brown, 76, and Jordan Brown, 31, both of Ajax are charged with two counts of being party a failure to comply with release conditions.

Tullock was remanded into custody until a bail hearing while the Browns were released with conditions. All three will appear in a Lindsay courtroom on June 23.
