Missing Persons Unit - Death of Alloura Wells - Netflix
Alloura Wells (a.k.a. Alloura Hennessy and Alloura Wheeler) was a homeless Canadian mixed-race transgender sex-worker. She died in Toronto in June 2017 and her body was discovered in a ravine the following month, but she was not reported missing until 6 November 2017, and her badly decomposed body was not identified until 23 November. Wells's death brought attention to a marginalized community and brought criticisms against the Toronto Police Service (TPS) and The 519 community centre over mismanagement of information. Internal and external reviews were called by both organizations over their policies and accusations of bias. The case, along with a series of deaths of missing people in Church and Wellesley, Toronto's gay village, prompted the TPS to create a dedicated missing-persons unit.
