    That clip was really good, did I hear correctly that LF was living/working in the Church, Alexander area? That is in the heart of the Gay Village.

    The police are sounding a warning about a possible sex-trade killer in the Toronto area. The Star is also making the connection between what happened to Kera and Leanne. Leanne is confirmed to have been working the sex trade in Toronto.

    Police now say the murder of a Winnipeg woman in the Port Lands area last month was not random.

    The police also found what they consider some key evidence in the case.

    Last Friday, some clothing and personal items belonging to Leanne Freeman were found in a garbage dumpster on Kingston Road at Sandown near Midland Avenue.

    Detective Brian Borg said the location is only a 20-minute drive from the murder scene and he believes the items were dumped right after her death

    Memorial for Leanne Freeman

    http://www.thestar.com/news/article/1115981

    Port Lands memorial to slain woman has magnetic effect on passersby
    Published On Sun Jan 15 2012Email Print Rss Article


    The inscription on the memorial at 450 Unwin Ave. for Leanne Freeman reads, “Death steals a heartache no one can heal/ Love leaves a memory no one can steal.”

    Colin McConnell/Toronto Star
    Noor Javed
    Staff Reporter


    It is an unlikely place for a memorial, at the side of a nondescript road flanked by factories and empty land. But this is why cars pull over to have a look, runners stop to read the inscription and it is almost impossible to pass by the engraved stone without at least a quick glance.

    It was here, last November, a stranger found the body of 23-year-old Leanne Freeman. The Winnipeg native had been shot in the head, her body dumped at 1 a.m. in the middle of a secluded two-way street in the Port Lands area.

    Now, a few metres from where she was found, is a large granite stone wedged deep into the ground to carry a permanent memory of a young woman who friends say was full of life, full of energy and loved to be the centre of attention.

    “Every time I go there, I see people stopped around it,” said Robin Brideau, who has dedicated much of his time and money into creating the memorial at 450 Unwin Ave. “That’s why I put it up. That’s what I was hoping for,” he said.

    Brideau created the memorial because he wanted people to know the woman behind the headlines.

    Cannot find or recall if we had a thread for Leanne Freeman, will post here for now.

    http://www.thestar.com/news/crime/2...rial-starts-for-two-men-in-2011-shooting.html

    "Leanne Freeman was left unconscious and barely breathing in the middle of a deserted road in the pouring November rain around 1:00 a.m.

    The 23-year-old woman had been shot five times.

    Two men are now on trial for her murder. It is admitted that both men, Robert Beauregard and Jonathan Ash, drove to Unwin Ave, near Leslie St. in the industrial Port Lands area with Freeman in the early hours of Nov. 29, 2011.

    &#8220;Neither Mr. Beauregard or Mr. Ash left the location until after Miss Freeman was shot,&#8221; Crown prosecutor Warren Thompson said, reading an agreed statement of facts to the jury. &#8220;The fact that Mr. Beauregard and Mr. Ash were at this location where Leanne Freeman was shot is admitted&#8230;No other party came on the scene during this time.&#8221;

    It also agreed that Beauregard and Ash then drove to a Bulk Barn on Kingston Rd. between 1:15a.m. and 1:30 a.m. and threw away Freeman&#8217;s green duffel bag, her pink and blue knapsack and her black purse in a recycling bin.

    Both Beauregard and Ash have pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder."

    Not sure if this is related but I instantly thought of Kera when I heard about this poor woman:

    Her name is Leanne Freeman and she is young and from the West. SHe came to Toronto to start a new life. I don't know anything else i.e. if she was an escort, etc. She was shot. I can't remember if the cause of death was released in Kera's case.
