The man charged with killing 10 people in the Toronto van attack last year is refusing to help police unlock three of his personal electronic devices, court documents obtained by CBC News show.
For the last year, Toronto police have been trying to access Alek Minassian's MacBook laptop and two smartphones — but so far, haven't had any success.
Investigators believe his locked devices may lead to other like-minded men considering violent attacks.
Minassian, who studied software development and was weeks away from graduating from Seneca College's computer studies program, added layers of encryption to his devices and is refusing to give up his passwords, Det. Christopher Sloan said in a May 2019 affidavit.
