Police enlisting video and social media to find killer

November 8, 2018   ·   0 Comments


Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) is again turning to social media to garner the public’s help to find a killer.

Veronica Lynn Kaye, 18-years-old, left her Etobicoke apartment and boarded a bus to visit a friend at a photography store before heading to a major shopping centre in Mississauga on Nov. 7 1980. Veronica entered the store and met with her friend but gave no indication that anything was wrong. Veronica told her friend that she had a ride and was heading to Square One Shopping Centre but Veronica wasn’t seen with anyone, nor was a vehicle seen in the parking lot. 38 years ago today, Veronica was last seen alive leaving the photography store. Kaye’s family reported Veronica missing, prompting an extensive search that proved unsuccessful, according to an OPP news release.

More than 11 months later – on Oct. 9, 1981 – two men walking in Caledon found Veronica Kaye’s body in a wooded, isolated area near the intersection of Humber Station Road and Castlederg Sideroad. Investigators say Veronica was wearing the same clothes in which she was last seen alive and sustained fatal injuries fighting for her life. A unique button was found with Veronica’s body that did not come from her clothing. Police want to identify the source of this button.

Knowing that someone has information to assist with this ongoing investigation, the OPP have created and released a video overview of this crime on the official OPP YouTube channel and are encouraging the public to view and share it widely on their respective social media channels.

A $50,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for the murder of Veronica KAYE. If you have any information about this case, please call the OPP at 1-888-310-1122, your local police service, or to remain anonymous call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
