Neeko Mitchell was murdered at the North Kipling Community Centre, just after 8 pm. on November 24, 2013. He was there to see his brother participate in a basketball tournament that was suspended because of the homicide. 

Last January, an arrest warrant was issued for Reshane Hayles-Wilson, 23, of Mississauga, who remains at large.

At a media conference at police headquarters on June 26, Homicide Detective Sergeant Brian Borg announced that an arrest warrant has been issued for Kashana Duncan, 28, of Toronto. She’s wanted for accessory after the fact to murder for her role in allegedly assisting in the immediate time period after Mitchell’s murder.

On June 20, 28-year-old Tyrone Michael Knott was arrested by 23 Division and Homicide officers. He was charged with the same offences of which Duncan is accused.

Knott appeared in court on June 21, and was remanded until his next court appearance on July 14.

“This is a serious criminal offence to harbour someone who you know is wanted for a serious criminal offence,” said Borg. “Those who knowingly do this are placing themselves and their livelihood at serious risk. I assure you that, if you are found to be assisting Mr. Hayles-Wilson at any time after Neeko Mitchell’s murder or found to be assisting Kashana Duncan now that they know she’s wanted by police authorities, you will be arrested, charged and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.”

Borg firmly believes that Hayles-Wilson is aided by others who know he’s wanted by police.

“Our investigation has been extensive and is still ongoing and quite active after seven months,” said Borg. “…There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that wherever he is, he continues to pose a serious risk to the public and the police. He’s violent and most likely involved in criminal activity and should be considered armed and dangerous.”
