Early life

He was born in Toronto, Ontario. He was raised by an aunt and moved from Western Canada to Montreal in 1958. As an adult, he worked as a handyman.

Murders

DNA evidence led police to charge Fyfe for the murders. The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) arrested him on December 22, 1999, while he was returning to his pick-up truck after eating in Husky Truck Stop. He has confessed to only a portion of the crimes he is suspected of committing.

Fyfe’s preliminary hearing began on November 6, 2000. Jean Lecours was the crown prosecutor heading up the case against Fyfe. He is now serving a life sentence in a psychiatric hospital in Saskatchewan. The four last victims had been admitted after he was incarcerated.
