How do we know if the perp is a man?
Naked women fought on balcony
By QMI Agency
A 29-year-old Hamilton, Ont., woman has been charged with attempted murder after police were called to an apartment building where two women were fighting naked on a third-floor balcony last Monday evening.
Police broke up the fight and launched an investigation.
Karyn Dejong, 29, of Hamilton has been charged with being in a dwelling unlawfully, sexual assault and attempted murder. She appeared in court Sunday and was remanded into custody.
It could have been a woman that killed her, maybe a jealous one. Some women can be extremely vicious when it has to do with a man.
chances are it's a man if they're interested in size 10/11 workboots
It is rather odd that a woman who had worked for years on the night shift, was murdered in the middle of the night only a month after she changed jobs to working the day shift. I wonder if she normally worked on Sunday nights at her old job?
I wonder how much gas there was left in Sonia's vehicle when it was discovered? I wonder if the perp would have driven further with the car to dispose of her but needed to return to a central area to avoid needing to go to a gas station or risk having to walk along the roads and being seen after leaving the car behind.
If this guy had his own car, where did he park when he broke into Sonia's home? If he parked elsewhere i.e. where he parked her car in the back alley of Broadway, he would have needed to walk to her house on foot. He would have exposed himself to being seen by at least a few late drivers and others heading home or to work in the early hours.
I am now believing that the perp is someone who lives very close by who knew Sonia lived alone. Maybe even someone from her street. He would not have his own car and would need to return her car back to where he took her because this is where the he lives. He would not be able to return home without being detected full of blood and would be seen walking from the disposal site. I'm feeling this is a young guy and lives close by to Sonia. JMO of course.
As far as the killer being a woman, apart from the size 10/11 boots, we are talking about lugging a body out of a house, into a car, and then disposal in the woods. I don't mean to start a whole man vs. woman debate, but this would suggest a male killer. Not exclusively, but it would be pretty long odds.
This may have been the first length of time where Sonia was actually home in the evening. Maybe the perp didn't know she was in a new job, and was going to burgalize her home, as someone pointed out.
I wonder what her old shift rotation was at the hospital, and also, what her other co-workers/neighbours shift rotations are? Not just shift times, but shift days (4 days on/3 days off type of thing).
I wonder if there are any "happening" local hotspots on Sunday in Orangeville? What is the closing time of the local pubs/clubs/bars?

Either the perp was covered in blood and walked home from the car disposal site (which was likely close by) OR he was covered in blood and walked to his vehicle from the car disposal site, after which, he most assuredly would have stained his vehicle in some way.
Someone who has detailed their vehicle extensively (local car wash?), or purchased new car seat covers recently, could be suspect.
I see the Glenn Haffey Conservation Area and the Albion Hills Conservation Area are both very close to where Sonia was recovered AND close to Bolton, ON, where Sonia was from. I wonder if Sonia ever used to bike or hike there?
It just seems weird that they headed back towards Bolton, where Sonia's parents live and where she was earlier in the day. And I've always thought it strange that the perpetrator would choose that particular sideroad which would be a possible route for Sonia herself to take to visit her parent's home if she wanted to avoid busy Hwy 9. Why did this person drive towards that area I wonder? Did Sonia ever travel that sideroad? This was not the first side road off of Hwy 10 that they could have taken if they wanted to get off a main road quickly. There is another sideroad that goes in the opposite direction before that one. They may have been familiar with that road.
Many have wondered why the killer had left the doors and trunk of Sonia's car open. I think the killer was hoping someone would steal the car. A car thief could get curious why the doors are open and no person is around, and then find the keys right in the ignition.
My other guess is he had his own car nearby. Probably adult male, known to her.
There was a recent large bust in Orangeville (July 7, 2010) regarding street crimes:
“The object of the joint forces project was to target those criminals who conduct their illegal activities on our streets and directly impact on our communities,” Orangeville police chief Joseph Tomei said during a press conference in Shelburne Tuesday afternoon.
The purpose of this investigation was to provide focused enforcement against street-level drug dealers in the Town of Shelburne, The Town of Orangeville and the communities that comprise Dufferin County,” Shelburne police chief Kent Moore said. “Shelburne and Orangeville Police Services recognize that the drug problem is not only very serious but was deep-rooted within Orangeville, Shelburne and the surrounding areas.”
