A woman accused of stealing a purse belonging to one of the brides at last Thursday’s Grand Pride Wedding has turned herself into police after her photograph went viral on social media.
A few days after the alleged theft at Casa Loma, Julie Kinnear wrote about the incident and posted photos of an alleged suspect on Facebook. The post was shared more than 2,000 times.
On July 1, Emma Burtch, 23, turned herself in, according to police. She is charged with theft under $5,000. She is scheduled to appear in court on Aug. 15
The mass wedding saw 120 same-sex couples tie the knot during a group ceremony at Casa Loma, followed by a reception on the castle grounds. It is estimated that 800 people, including guests of the couples, attended the reception.
