    that looks nothing like broad daylight. it is quite obvious it is dark and the lighting you see is from street lights etc that surround the bridge... look to the right of the pictures, if it was broad daylight all that would be lit up, but it is dark.

    moreinfo I'd agree that this image appears to be daylight, whereas the other ones look to be artificial light (look at how the branch in the foreground is well lit in this photo, yet dark in the other images.)

    My guess would be that this is the same individual on a different trip earlier in the day, and that the photo has been released because it shows the person's features more clearly.

    I hope these people on the CTV footage come forward, or someone recognises them and gets them to come forward. The young guys with the air mattress wouldn't have been hard to spot that night by people who were driving around - they look like locals. Hope the police can find out if they saw anything or anybody.
    There looks as if there was a lot of support from the local community too. Nice to see.

    Could we change the title of this thread to include Joan's name - just out of respect for her.

    Wonder if the police have had any new leads from the CCTV - hope so!

    Yes, I would say 2 pictures and one is clearer as it is taken from a different camera. The bridge is a rail crossing I think.

    this is excellent news. Now the system better not fail us, and sentence him to life without parole.
    Everyone around the area can feel safer now.
    Cory can at least have some closure now and continue with the grieving process with loved ones and Joans family o/s.

    Such a mixture of happiness, relief and sadness today. Glad they caught him, but 18!!! This guy needs to go away for life. I don't care what his background is, what grief he may or may not have experienced. He needs life in prison for this.

    Just heard on sunrise that it is his 18th birthday today, so the crime was committed when he was 17. Will this mean he is charged as an adult or a child? I think there have been cases in the past where under 18's have been charged as adults - I hope this is the case.
