REWARD FOR INFORMATION IN ALLISTON MURDER CASE



One year later, the investigation continues into the murder of 38-year-old Sibel Duzguner (nee Yirtici) with a $50,000 reward announced as her family appeals for the missing piece of information to find her killer(s).

“On August 26, 2022, shortly before 6:30 a.m., members of the Nottawasaga Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) and emergency services responded to reports of gunshots at a residence on Kidd Crescent in Alliston,” say Police. “Sibel Duzguner, who was 38 years of age at the time, was located outside the residence with apparent gunshot wounds and transported to hospital, where she was pronounced deceased.

“The investigation has revealed that as Sibel got into her car to leave for work that morning, a vehicle drove up to her residence and an unknown suspect fired gunshots into her vehicle at approximately 6:25 a.m., fatally injuring her. The suspect(s) drove off in their vehicle.”

The search continues to locate the vehicle of interest, described as a grey 2011-2012 Volkswagen Jetta, which was observed in the area of Kidd Crescent shortly before the shooting.

Anyone who may have observed the vehicle prior to and/or during the time of the incident is asked to contact police.

“It is believed that the shooting was targeted and not random or a case of mistaken identity. Investigators have continued to follow up on tips and information provided by the public and together with Sibel's family, are appealing for anyone with any information, no matter how minor, to come forward.

“Sibel is described by her family as a loving mother of three with a strong connection to the local Turkish and Muslim communities. Sibel immigrated to Canada from Turkiye in 2003 with big dreams. She worked hard to integrate herself into her Canadian life, recently purchasing her own home and her own car, and planning to remarry. Sibel leaves behind her children, who lived with her in Canada, and her family in Turkiye, including six siblings and her father.”

Anyone who was in the neighbourhood of Kidd Crescent between 5:30 a.m. and 6:30 a.m. on August 26, 2022, has surveillance video or dashcam or any information in relation to this investigation is asked to contact police. Any minor detail may be the key piece to this investigation.

The Government of the Province of Ontario is now offering a $50,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible for the murder of Sibel Duzguner.

OPP Central Region Crime Units continue the investigation under the direction of the OPP Criminal Investigation Branch, with assistance from the OPP Forensic Identification Services and in collaboration with the Office of the Chief Coroner for Ontario.
