CAMH to review patient privileges after Zhebin Cong fled Canada

In a news release Tuesday night, police said they were “concerned for the safety of the public” due to Murdock’s disappearance.

Murdock has a history of sexual offences against strangers, and was previously convicted on counts of forcible confinement.

According to documents from the Ontario Review Board — which conducts annual assessments of those found not criminally responsible — all of the offences involved unknown women and, in one case, at least one young girl.

According to the board, Murdock was diagnosed with schizophrenia and borderline intellectual functioning. He also has a history of substance abuse. The board deemed him a “significant risk to the public” at his last review and ordered him to live in CAMH’s forensic unit.

CAMH patient goes missing for 2nd time in just over 1 month.
News of the man's disappearance comes as CAMH continues to face criticism after numerous patients have gone missing from the facility in recent weeks, with Charley being the sixth occurrence. Another patient, 59-year-old Robert McNamara, was reported missing Saturday and has still not been found. One of the most notable instances was regarding Zhebin Cong, a man who went missing from CAMH on July 3 and who police now believe fled the country. Cong was found not criminally responsible in the murder of his roommate in 2014.
