Murder charges were filed after Guelph police identified the remains found in the park
Guelph police have made an arrest in connection with the discovery of human remains in a south end park.
The remains were discovered on February 1 in a green space within Preservation Park in the area of Gordon Street and Edinburgh Road.
There was a police presence there as the bodies were removed from the scene.
Investigators say the remains are those of 62-year-old Mike Galizzi. Galizzi was last seen on December 6 and reported missing two days later.
They announced Friday that a 27-year-old man from Guelph was arrested and charged with one count of second-degree murder and one count of committing an indecent assault on a human body. He is out on bail this Saturday.
Investigators said the accused and the victim knew each other.
It was Guelph’s first homicide in 2024.
