    BRANTFORD, ONT. - The trail went cold more than 29 years ago.

    It ended somewhere in a field near the former Buns Master Bakery, where police found Mary Hammond's footprints.

    Now, police believe they have picked up the trail again and have been searching a home and collecting evidence this past week".

    Wouldn't Lamb have been 14 years old in 1974 ?

    Police believe Caughlin's killer drove a metallic purple 1970-1971 Charger, Challenger, Duster, Demon or Swinger. The factory name for the paint was "Plum Crazy."

    I see what you mean, the perp I suggested is not a good one because he probably would have raped then killed his victim. Although plenty 14 year old hooligans have been known to start criminal career by stealing cars ...
    Sounds like they have a great lead in this case, hope it is solved soon!

    "Suspect in Karen Caughlin murder may be deceased
    Crime, Lambton County — By jd on July 6, 2012 at 9:19 am

    LambtonShield.com has learned that one of the suspects in the 1974 murder of Karen Caughlin may have died"

    (I was thinking that Petrolia was not that far from Brantford where Mary Hammond was last seen alive...)

    Connected to the suspects in Barrie coldcase,
    http://cnews.canoe.ca/CNEWS/Crime/20.../19984166.html
    "Police say they have found two cement bunkers behind the home, one measuring about 20x10, and about seven-feet high.

    It contains both explosives as well as food and equipment to sustain people for a short amount of time.

    Police said they have found wires and explosive devices, such as propane tanks and containers of gasoline, as well as at least five mechanisms that could explode.

    A robot has been brought up from Toronto to assist the technicians in disabling the bomb-like appliances"

    Thanks. I didn't remember having actually done a summary of this case until I heard about the victim having been bound to a tree. From post #42:
    ●Michael Traynor, 26, an unemployed plumber, vanished from his hometown, Barrie, Ontario, on Tuesday, September 12th, 1978, after spending an evening at a bar with friends. A hunter found Traynor’s decomposed body on Monday, October 2nd in a densely forested area north of Barrie. His hands were tied behind his back with copper wire and he had a gaping gunshot wound to the chest.

    This guy accused of sex assault and violence, seems to fly under the radar (at least media-wise) wondering if there is more to it ...
    http://www.983flyfm.com/theflyfm/cha...-man-revealed/
    "Forty-one-year-old Christopher Edgar was arrested on Wednesday by Kingston Police and was charged with sexual assault, forcible confinement, break and enter, dangerous driving, flight from police and possession of stolen property."

    Trying to find a thread for Simone Sandler or a place to put info. (not that there seems to be anything new,) but just in case it relates to any other crimes past and present.

    http://www.examiner.com/article/cold...one-sandler-21


    "Media reports said that Sandler was last seen with a tall, thin, dark-haired, tattooed, young man known in the area as known as “Joe.” -- the Toronto Star reported that “Joe” was in a relationship with Sandler, a relationship which broke off a week before her disappearance.


    Another anonymous caller said that they had witnessed the murdered woman getting into a dark-coloured sedan with a driver described as having a mulatto complexion and dark hair.


    In 2008, Toronto Police reopened their investigation into the Simone Sandler homicide as the request of her family. To this day, no leads, suspects, or motives have ever emerged.


    In the days, months, and years following the murder, Toronto Police interviewed more than 100 people, travelling to Vancouver, Saskatoon and Northern Ontario to conduct interviews"

    I'm almost positive I did a capsule synopsis of Simone Sandler's murder in this thread, dotr. I remember writing it. If not, it was a major oversight.

    Edit: Yes, it's the fourth case in post #27.

The woman had been stabbed in the heart in the Balliol St. apartment where she resided with her son. She had been murdered sometime during the night as her child slept nearby. Brodkin was known to be a marijuana dealer, and police speculated the motive for her murder was robbery since a small cosmetics case belonging to the victim, containing drugs and money, was missing.

    ●On Thursday, September 1st, 1983, 23-year-old Toronto prostitute Claire Samson was seen in front of the Essex Hotel on Jarvis St. getting into a large, beige car driven by a balding older man. Samson was never seen alive again, and her body was found the following day in a wooded area off Oro Sideroad 20/21 near Highway 93, just north of Barrie, Ontario. She had been shot in the head with a small-calibre gun. In 1987 and 1989, this murder case was publicized by Crimestoppers, and a reward was offered, apparently to no avail.

    ●Anthony Carnovale, 30, was killed by shotgun blasts that hit his heart and lungs on Friday, January 11th, 1980, as he sat on a couch watching TV in his girlfriend’s apartment on Keele St. near Lawrence Ave. W. The two 12-gauge shotgun blasts that tore through the window of the apartment around 11 p.m. also wounded Carnovale’s girlfriend, Cathleen Pereira, in the shoulder and neck, but she survived. The gun was later determined to have been fired from no farther than 10 feet away. Neighbours saw a silver or grey Cadillac with a black vinyl roof fleeing the scene moments after the shooting.
    At the time of his death, Carnovale was on parole and facing trial on drug trafficking charges. Police believe the killing was gangland retribution for something illicit in which the victim was involved. This crime was still confirmed unsolved in 1984.

    ●The body of Maladevi Latchman (age unknown) was found in the Humber River behind the Old Mill banquet hall on Tuesday, November 15th, 1994. An autopsy showed she had been brutally beaten, and it appeared her body had been thrown from a bridge over the river. No further information.

    ●At midnight on Tuesday, March 25th, 1969, 23-year-old Yvonne Dorion was walking home on Ferrier Ave., near Danforth and Pape Aves., just steps from the rooming house where she lived, when a tall man wearing a long coat jumped from the shadows of an adjacent parking lot and stabbed her in the back between the shoulder blades. Dorion survived the attack but was left partially paralyzed. An hour-and-a-half before the stabbing of Dorion, an elderly woman was attacked and robbed of her purse on the same street. She was physically unhurt. Dorion’s stabbing and recovery was a cause célèbre in the Toronto media for several months, but her assailant was never caught.
    Thanks, go figure- the only post of yours I had not 'thanked", no wonder I missed it! thanks.

    Wondering who died in 2001 and where the mystery button (a symbol 8, or "eternity" came from?

    Tuesday, April, 26, 2011 - 10:10:08 AM

    "Veronica Kaye, 18, was found dead in Caledon on October 9, 1981. Her surviving family fears they may never learn who killed her."

    By Heather Abrey, Enterprise Staff

    http://www.caledonenterprise.com/new...r-kaye-family/


    "A few months ago police came to the family with a summary of their investigation. There is a person of interest, officers told them, but no suspect.
    “All roads lead to this guy,” said Julie of the information she was given.
    But, despite the “person of interest” status, this man, 45-years-old at the time Veronica was killed, will not face investigators in the interview room. He died in 2001, the family was told, and there isn’t enough physical evidence to say definitively that he was responsible for snuffing out the life of 18-year-old Veronica, or even to officially label him a suspect.
    “This person wasn’t on our radar,” Julie explained. “The guy was a stranger. He was 45-years-old, lived [in Caledon], and he was working in Mississauga or Toronto. He came across my sister, who may have been hitch-hiking, and he took her and killed her.” Police told the family that this man was married and had children. He lived in the Caledon area for about four or five years and was an active hunter. But, despite the family’s appeal to have access to the executive summary of the investigation, they have been denied, and no one can tell them who this man was.
    “I don’t know the name. People know the name, I just can’t get to it,” Julie said. “It’s the end of the road for us. There’s nowhere else to go. The suspect has died, and unless there’s a witness or evidence, it’s over.”
    While Veronica’s sister is firm in her belief that this “person of interest” killed her sister, police were unable to find evidence to prove it.
    “We met with the family back in November. We told them we’ve exhausted all of our possible investigative leads, so unless a witness or evidence comes forward [the case] will be marked inactive,” Karski explained. “We have no active lead or further investigative avenues to pursue.”
    Officers provided as much information as possible to the family during the course of the investigation, but given that this man is not a suspect, his name is not an option.
    “The definition of a person of interest is someone that we believe might have information about the incident or be involved,” explained Karski, reinforcing that there is not enough evidence for this man to be considered a suspect. “It’s unfair to that person that a shadow is cast on them and they can’t then defend themselves.”
    Yet, despite not having the whole picture, police were still able to give Veronica’s family new information, and some of it was painful.
    “I was so shocked by the age that I said it can’t be his first time,” Julie said of the man she believes is responsible. “Guys don’t just go out on their lunch hour, kill someone and go home… It actually hit home the viciousness of this guy to hear that it was so random. How many others? How can you have so much venom for a 5’4″ 18-year-old girl?”
    The man, who is not officially a “suspect”, only a person of interest, did spend some time in jail for unspecified crimes, according to the Kaye family"

    From above link concerning Veronica Kaye..
    “The fantasy is that somebody is going to come across a box, and in that box will be the physical evidence that links her to him,” said Julie, noting that the jeans that Veronica had borrowed from a friend just before disappearing were never found, and that the source of the strange button was never identified. “Everybody just wants to know the truth about what happened. Who did it?”"



    (IMO)
    So who could this possible person of interest be? A guy who may have picked up a possibly hitch-hiking Veronica, someone who was 45 years old at the time of her murder Oct.9 1981, lived in Caledon for about 5 years with a wife and kids, enjoyed hunting, worked in Mississauga or Toronto and died in 2001, when he was approx. 66 years old?
    Wonder if any one he knew might have found odd items with his belongings after he died, wonder if they would have the courage to tell someone ?

    TORONTO — A cash-strapped roofer who owed the Chinese mafia $30,000 over a drug debt testified Wednesday that he agreed to kill rich philanthropist Glen Davis for $150,000 in December 2005.

    Tyler Cawley stated that Dmitri Kossyrine gave him $46,000 in one envelope and a photo of his murder target, Davis, plus maps pinpointing his home and office in another envelope"

    looking for a news link about reporter D.N. to post, but cannot find- in the meantime, wondering if this recently solved coldcase perp. could be responsible for any other crimes?
    http://m.theglobeandmail.com/news/to...service=mobile

    "It took Toronto police 30 years to crack open the cold case of University of Toronto secretary Donna Anne Proian’s homicide. When they were finally ready to reveal their suspect, police had to go to a Toronto jail cell to charge the man who was already serving a life sentence for the murder of a different woman.

    Ernest William Westergard was charged Friday with first-degree murder in the 1981 homicide of Ms. Proian, Detective Sergeant Steve Ryan said.

    Media reports dating back to the homicide said Ms. Proian, 30, had been strangled with her own clothing and stabbed several times in the face. Her husband found her body inside the locked apartment at 120 St. Patrick St.

    Police wouldn’t say what caused them to re-examine evidence in Ms. Proian’s death, but it led to the arrest of Mr. Westergard, who used to live in a suite neighbouring the Proians.

    “Westergard has been on the radar right from the onset of this investigation,” Det. Sgt. Ryan said. “You may think you’ve gotten away with a homicide, but in fact, you haven’t and you won’t. The scientific technology is so great that we will catch you. It may take time, in this case 30 years, but we will catch you.”"

    http://www.680news.com/news/local/ar...ing-his-murder
    TORONTO, Ont. - The family of Christopher Skinner marked the third anniversary of his murder, Thursday, with a renewed plea for tips in the case.

    Toronto police Det.-Sgt. Stacy Gallant and Skinner's father, Warren, and sister, Taryn, held a news conference at 10:30 a.m., saying they are hoping their appeal leads to some closure.

    Skinner, 27, was beaten and then run over with an SUV at Victoria and Adelaide streets in the entertainment district on Oct. 18, 2009. He was out that night celebrating his sister's birthday and was engaged to be married"

    The Glen Davis murder went unsolved for quite a while despite decent-quality security camera images of the shooter. I was ecstatic the day the arrests were announced.

    There is no news link about D.N., aside from articles he wrote for the Star in his capacity as a reporter, but if you manage to contact Liquid Lounge, she will fill you in on her certainty of her father's guilt. Plus there are the Youtube videos she posted, though I don't recall if she mentions Kaye in any of them. Here's her Yt page: http://www.youtube.com/user/Diggingfortruth3
    And there's a lot of very interesting material in [ame=http://websleuths.com/forums/showthread.php?t=47857]this[/ame] thread, if you haven't seen it before.

    Proian's murder has all the hallmarks of a classical sex-murder, so you are right in thinking this Westergard character could be a serial offender.

    As for Skinner, we've posted about that here several times. I sure hope it is eventually solved.

    Today..(What a sad, sordid tale)
    http://cnews.canoe.ca/CNEWS/Crime/20.../20360456.html
    TORONTO -- A middleman who helped Marshall Ross orchestrate the murder of his first cousin and benefactor Glen Davis was convicted of first-degree murder Thursday.

    A jury returned its guilty verdict against Dmitri Kossyrine, who showed little emotion. Justice Eugene Ewaschuk immediately handed Kossyrine the mandatory sentence of life imprisonment"

    Another murder happened at U of T around the same time, and I'm not sure the case has been closed. I can't recall the precise details, but it involved a medical examiner, or something like that, who was murdered by a colleague. The victim was white; the perp was black and went on the run. I don't remember hearing about the killer having been caught. The Star's post-2000 search capabilities are quite useless, so I can't conjure up more info. The slaying happened in the late'90s or early-'00s.
    Very weird case suspected perpetrator was Haitian or Haitian Canadian , worked with victim I believe preparing bodies for medical students to perform anatomy - his car found next day at Scarborough bluffs - after the murder they believe he burned down an historically important "Black" church around Bathurst and College where Marcus Garvey once preached. He drank beers early the next morning with friends as usual. Was Sunday school teacher at the Church I don't remember anyone saying they found him weird I think quite the opposite. There were macabre rumours that the perpetrator had "prepared" the victim as you would other corpses but these were somewhat dispelled later I believe. I will get details it was April 1998 some of what I write here could be wrong will check.
