The former boyfriend of Elnaz Hajtamiri hired a private investigator to keep tabs on her location in the days and weeks before she was violently abducted from Wasaga Beach, Ont., on Jan. 12, CBC News has learned.
Montreal resident Mohamad Lilo, 34, enlisted the services of Brampton-based Investigations Plus Ltd. to locate and surveil Hajtamiri, three sources with direct knowledge of the situation told CBC News.
One of the sources said investigators with the firm conducted surveillance on Jan. 10 and 11 outside the Wasaga Beach home where Hajtamiri was staying with relatives. An investigator, however, was called off on the morning of Jan. 12, the source says — the same day three men dressed in police gear forced their way into the house and abducted the 37-year-old Iranian immigrant.
She hasn’t been seen or heard from since.
