    On Aug. 25, 2003, the lifeless body of 32-year-old Cassandra Do was discovered in the bathtub of her apartment on Gloucester Street in Toronto.

    Police later determined that Do, a transgender woman believed to be working in the sex-trade, had been sexually assaulted and strangled to death.

    During the course of their investigation, detectives discovered that the young woman, who also went by the name "Tula," was scheduled to meet with a client on the day she was killed and it is believed the person who murdered her left behind DNA evidence stemming from the sex assault.

    Police say the national DNA databank was unable to pull up a name but the forensic evidence was linked to another sexual assault from 1997.

    Despite securing a suspect description from the surviving victim of that 1997 attack, police were ultimately unable to identify the man they believed to be responsible for both crimes.

    In the spirit of trying to " connect these cases to other parts of the world where the offenders may be hiding," the unsolved murder of an Asian airline worker in Vancouver, comes to mind.
    imo speculation.

    Similar to the Do case, some of the investigations listed on the website have forensic evidence that links a particular suspect to a crime but simply don’t have a name to connect to the case.

    In some of the cases where a possible perpetrator has been identified, investigators simply do not know the suspect’s whereabouts.

    This (website) allows us to connect these cases to other parts of the world where the offenders may be hiding,” Saunders said

    Using DNA samples, investigators confirmed her killer also sexually assaulted another prostitute in 1997.

    That victim described her attacker as black, about 6-foot-3, 230 pounds and wearing thin wired glasses.

    “He also used the name Victor,
    ” Ryan said.

    Bumping, Cassandra was briefly referenced in this recent video about another transgender woman who went missing from the area.
