The coroner’s office and investigators from homicide squad’s cold case unit were at Beechwood Cemetery in Vaughan, where a backhoe pushed past newly fallen snow to break ground just after 10 a.m. and reveal the casket of Dwayne Biddersingh.
“We just want to be thorough,” he said. “It’s certainly rare.”
Det. Keith Bradshaw said he has never seen an exhumation in his 35 years with the service.
Dwayne’s body is now set to undergo a new autopsy after it is transported to the morgue in Toronto.
A forensic pathologist and forensic anthropologist were on scene Tuesday.
