Description
Christ Church St. James remains a bit of a mystery.

It is said that a University of Toronto professor used to volunteer his accounting services for the church. The profesor worked in the medical sciences department which dealt with cadavers. He along with partner were allegedly on the verge of a "big" discovery.

On the day of the fire which destroyed the church, all of the professor's university files went missing. The professor's partner was found dead IN one of the cadaver slates and the professor himself could not be found.

Years later the professor's body would be found rotting in a car off the Scarborough Bluffs. A neighbour indicated that the professor happened to work near the Bluffs but there was no way it could have been an accident.

In researching this story, Lopix told me that nobody wanted to talk about it at the university.

When the church was demolished the church funds were found to be phony. Did the treasurer make off with the money, commit an act of arson and kill his friend?

The police believe these events to be coincidence. The area is scheduled to be demolished to make way for new housing.

St. James Christ Church is located in Toronto.

As of 2009 this location has been demolished.
