On July 28, 1977, twelve-year-old Emanuel Jacques was working on Yonge Street, shining shoes with his brother and best friend when a man asked him if he would like to earn $25 to help him move photographic equipment. Emanuel jumped at the chance since he was trying to earn money to help his family save up for a trip back to Portugal. His parents were Portuguese immigrants to Canada, and were quite poor.
Little did Emanuel know that this supposed act of generosity was actually a trap. The man, known as Saul Betesh had led Emanuel to a run-down apartment that occupied the second floor above a massage parlour and pornographic movie house called Charlie's Angels. (Whig, 2002)
Saul and Emanuel entered through the back, and went into the apartment where three other men were waiting. They forced Emanuel to perform sexual acts, fondled him, took photos of him and finally attempted to inject him with prescription drugs to murder him. This torture lasted for a period of twelve hours, however when the drugs failed the men proceeded to drown him in the kitchen sink.
Once the deed was done, the men wrapped the body in two plastic garbage bags and a plastic curtain, and carried it to the rooftop. They gathered all the lumber and debris they could find and piled it on top of the body. The small boy’s shoe box (containing shoe cleaning materials) was splintered and shoved up a chimney.

Saul David Betesh was found guilty of 1st degree murder with no chance of parole for 20 years. He and Kribs are confined at the medium-security Warkworth Institution near Campbellford, Ontario.

Robert Wayne Kribs pleaded guilty to 1st degree murder. His lawyer, Gordon Goldman, tried to persuade the trial judge to send Kribs to Penetanguishene, a mental hospital for psychiatric treatment.The judge refused the request, and sent Robert Wayne Kribs off to prison for life with no chance of parole for 25 years. He was denied parole in 2002.

Josef Woods was convicted of 2nd degree murder. He was sentenced to life in prison with no chance of parole for 18 years. He lasted 25 years in prison before his death in 2003. He’d been denied parole in 1995, 1996, 1998 and 2000.

Gruener was acquitted. They only had enough information to prove he had held open the door of the body-rub parlour to allow Betesh to bring the boy in. A few days after Jaques's disappearance, George Hislop, a well-known gay activist received a phone call from Betesh, who confessed to the murder and told Hislop that Jaques's body had been hidden under a pile of wood on the roof of the building at which he had been abducted. Hislop contacted the Metropolitan Toronto Police and then persuaded Betesh to turn himself in.

On a tipoff from Betesh, three other men — Robert Wayne Kribs, Josef Woods and Werner Gruener— were arrested. According to evidence introduced at trial, Betesh held the boy under water until he drowned while Kribs restrained Jaques's legs. The three were employed as security doormen at Charlie's Angels. On August 1, the police found the sodomized body of Emanuel Jaques on the roof of a sex shop. (OMNI, 2012) At the apartment above the Charlie's Angels massage parlour, the police found the victim’s clothing and of all the photos the killers had took of the rape of Emanuel. Only two managed to turn out. They were of Betesh fondling the naked boy. There was also a myriad of photos of other naked boys as young as 7, many of them tied up.
