a dozen police cruisers were parked outside the home of Wayne Kellestine. Kellestine had no comment on the slayings when the Toronto Star reached him by telephone before the police action at his residence.
Police have refused to confirm that the eight died of gunshot wounds, conceding only that "trauma" was involved.
area has long been home to biker gangs including the Bandidos, Hells Angels
The Volkswagen Golf is registered to Luis Manny Raposo. A man with the same name was a known, low-level member of the Bandidos biker gang
the tow truck was being driven by George Jesso, a man in his 50s who has long trawled Toronto's highways for stranded cars and collision scenes, wouldn't harm a fly, but he would show up at accidents and play tough, try to intimidate.
Ex-Bandidos member Edward Winterhalder said he had talked to current members in the area who recognized the vehicles from the media coverage. "I can tell you that it's Bandidos that got killed," said Winterhalder.
The SUV was found in a field about 20 metres off a dirt road. About 100 metres away, the tow truck bearing a Superior Towing logo on the side was found parked on the shoulder, the Volkswagen hooked to the back.
Edward Winterhalder, a former member of the Bandidos motorcycle gang who lives in Oklahoma, said he had talked to current members in the area who recognized the vehicles from the media coverage.
"I can tell you that it's Bandidos that got killed," said Winterhalder, who left the gang in 2003 and wrote "Out in Bad Standings," a book on his time inside the gang.
The owner of the farmhouse where police descended also was affiliated with the Bandidos, Winterhalder said.
A witness has reported seeing four people being led from a house near where the bodies of eight men were found Saturday in Shedden, Ont.
A local resident confirms that four people were seen coming out the home of Wayne Kellestine at around 7 p.m. Sunday.
The resident, who did not want to be identified, says the people went “out to the road with their hands up.”
Three west-end tow truck drivers linked to the Bandidos bike gang are missing and feared among the eight dead in a possible biker war, sources have told the Toronto Sun.
A source familiar with the coc aine trade in Toronto's west end said some tow truck drivers dominate the retail end of the coke trade on behalf of the biker gangs.
The source said the Bandidos gang is a particularly volatile and dangerous crew that has been increasingly aggressive of late, intruding on other clubs' traditional turf.
The eight victims all suffered gunshot wounds, and five people have been arrested and charged with first-degree murder, Ontario police Det.-Supt. Ross Bingley told a news conference.
“The victims of this crime have been postively identified and are associated (with), or belong to, the Bandidos motorcycle gang,” said Bingley.
“This is an isolated incident with ties to the Bandidos.”
One officer called the killings an “internal cleansing” within the gang itself.

Yep bikers. Oh well they were useless anyways so it's not a tragedy in my books.
SHEDDEN, Ont. - An entire outlaw biker crew, a small chapter of the Bandidos, was reported missing on the streets of Toronto yesterday as detectives working to solve the worst mass killing in Ontario history paid a visit to the nearby home of a fellow biker, hoping to retrace the final hours of the eight men slain and dumped in this once quiet community.
Though police at the scene -- including Ontario's anti-biker unit -- said little publicly, associates and members of the world's second most powerful biker gang were exchanging online sympathies and making phone calls into the night, as a far away as Germany, to find out why their brothers died.
"I can tell you that it's Bandidos that got killed," said Ed Winterhalder, who left the gang in 2003 and wrote Out in Bad Standings, a book on his time inside the gang.
In a statement to the Citizen, the gang's rival, Hells Angels, said they had absolutely nothing to do with the mass murder and would be vindicated despite reports to the contrary.

Muscedere was believed to be the president of the Bandidos in Canada.
