Twelve years after his murder, the OPP charged a second person in relation to the death of 45-year-old Morris Conte, who was reported missing in Caledon on May 21, 2010.

On May 22, 2010, human remains were located in the Sugarbush area of Oro-Medonte Township and on Maplehurst Road in Lake of Bays Township. On May 28, 2010, human remains were also located on Stoneleigh Road in Bracebridge.

A post-mortem examination revealed that the human remains located at these locations belonged to the same person, Morris Conte.

One person was charged in July 2011 in connection with the death.

Yesterday a second person was arrested in relation to the investigation. 62 year-old Antonino Lucia, of Woodbridge, has been charged with First Degree Murder.
