    "York Region police are offering a $50,000 reward in a renewed push to find the killer of a 16-year-old girl murdered more than four decades ago.

    A passerby found Yvonne Leroux’s body along 16th Sideroad between Keele and Jane streets in King City on Nov. 30, 1972. She had died from blunt force trauma to the head.

    “It’s on my mind 24 hours a day,” said Yvonne’s father Gerry Leroux, 83"

    This is haunting!
    That dear Father loves his little girl, she was only 16!
    The pain in Mr Leroux's voice and eyes, could shatter the ice of the coldest heart.

    “To me, this reward was just like a pot of gold dropping on your lap,” Leroux said. “I can’t thank … the detective enough for what he is doing on my behalf.”

    When Yvonne was 15 years old, she began spending time with a bad crowd. She started experimenting with drugs. Leroux believes she got mixed up in a gang, that she got in too deep, knew too much.

    “She tried to get away from them. She tried to get out of the gang and didn’t want to get our family involved in the gang,” Leroux said.

    Yvonne was the second of four children. When Leroux is in the woods outside his home, he said he can hear Yvonne talking to him.

    “I just sit there listening to the birds and, sometimes, I hear her. I hear her voice saying ‘Daddy, they’re hurting me,’” Leroux said.

    " A $50,000 reward has been posted in an effort to revive interest in the case. Police are also looking for clues from as far away as Windsor.

    According to Sgt. Clint Whitney, Leroux lived in Windsor as a child, and frequently visited the area after her family moved to Toronto.

    “Any tip, no matter how small, could yield the critical piece of information that solves this,” Whitney said.

    "It’s been nearly 42 years since Yvonne Leroux’s lifeless body was found at the 16th Sdrd. of King Township between Jane and Keele Sts.

    The grim discovery of the 16-year-old Weston girl, who had been last seen the evening of Nov. 29, 1972 near Humber River Hospital in North York, would be made a day later. The coroner’s office determined blunt force trauma to be the cause of death.

    Now, York Regional Police, with the help of Toronto Police, is bringing this cold case back into the public eye and offering a $50,000 reward for anyone with information leading to an arrest."
