    Offhand cannot think of the names, but those murders were referenced as possibly having a connection to this one.
    Wondering if the Windsor murder of YL might even be connected too?
    imo, speculation.

    As years went by the investigation went cold. Every now and then, a promising lead would emerge, only to result in another dead end. Several months later, a revolver was found on the side of the highway in southwestern Ontario. Police eventually linked the weapon to the Tedford and Stearne murders by analyzing the bullet riflings. It had been used in a Windsor robbery.

    Still, despite the dead ends, Toronto detectives haven't given up hope. In the last few months, Toronto's cold case squad has teamed up with their counterparts in the Ontario Provincial Police.

    In 1972, two girls, 15 and 17, were shot and killed west of Tilbury, Ont., which is about a 45-minute drive east of Windsor. Each sustained a bullet wound to the head. "There are other connections, but it's still early. I can't give you any more details than that at this stage," said Det. Insp. Ian Maule, who heads the province's cold case unit.

    It’s been a 41-year wait for Diana Leroux, but she’s hoping there will finally be justice for the murder of her daughter.

    The Regional Municipality of York Police Services Board is offering a $50,000 reward in an effort to solve the 1972 murder of 16-year-old Windsor native Yvonne Leroux.

    “More than half of my life I’ve been waiting for something to be done,” Diana, 80, said. “Finally they released a reward.”

    On Nov. 30, 1972, Yvonne’s body was located on 16th Sideroad between Jane and Keele streets in King Township. Blunt force trauma was determined to be the cause of death.

    According to police, the investigation revealed that Yvonne was last seen the evening before near the York Finch General Hospital – known today as the Humber River Hospital – located at Finch Avenue and Norfinch Drive in North York.

    Cold-case murders of Wendy Tedford and Donna Stearne

    Tedford and Stearne were 17 when they were found shot to death in 1973, and police haven't yet identified their killer.

    Janice BradbeerSpecial to the Star
    There are more than 600 unsolved murders going back to the late 1950s on file with the Toronto Police Service Homicide Squad — the cold-blooded killing of teenage best friends Wendy Tedford and Donna Stearne among them. The file remains open and police are still seeking clues that could solve these murders that took place nearly 45 years ago.

    On Thursday, April 26, 1973, Wendy Tedford and Donna Stearne, both 17, went for a late night Coca-Cola at the 1950s-style diner Sit ’n Eat just north of Wilson Ave. at Keelegate Dr.

    The inseparable friends had planned an evening of shopping and a sleepover at Wendy’s house.

    But something went terribly wrong.


    The lifeless bodies of the two young women were discovered the next morning, in a rubble-strewn field about two kilometres from the diner, by a Grade 10 student on his way to Downsview Secondary School. Tony Iscaro was taking a shortcut through Downsview field when he stumbled across the bodies lying side by side.

    “I didn’t even take a good look,” Iscaro told the Star a few days later at his school. “I took off — I was scared stiff.”

    Wendy had been shot twice in the neck and was found face-down with her arms at her sides. Donna had a bullet wound in the back of her head and was on her back. Police found empty shells from a .38-calibre revolver nearby but no signs of sexual assault or robbery. Both young women were fully clothed, and two purses containing small amounts of cash were found at the scene. Police also found semen at the scene. In a recent interview, Toronto Police Service Homicide Squad Det. Sgt. Stacy Gallant would not say where this DNA was found as the case is still under investigation
    Det. Gallant occasionally gets tips from the public regarding the double murder and he has kept in contact with the victims’ families.
    Gallant urges anyone with information on the 1973 murders of Wendy Tedford and Donna Stearne to call Homicide at 416-808-7400.

    The police “may be only one name away,” from solving the case, he said.

    Donna was the second of four children and a Grade 12 student at Downsview Secondary School. She and Wendy had been tight since attending C.W. Jeffreys Secondary School four years before.

    Wendy had dropped out of school in 1971, following her fatherís death from cancer. Wendy was the third of four sisters and had moved out of her motherís apartment on Sheppard Ave. W. and in with her older sister Shirley and her 4-year-old son on Falstaff Ave. in the Downsview area. Wendy had been working at the Towers department store business office on Orfus Rd. for the three months before she was murdered.
