DRPS Homicide investigators are advancing their investigative efforts within Project Vigilant – the Missing Person, Unidentified Female investigation - with the distribution of information flyers, to be delivered to select households within the Region over the next couple of weeks.
The remains of this unidentified female were located in a field near the South Service Road and Holt Road in the Municipality of Clarington in October 2006. Located with the female human remains was a ladies OMNI digital watch with a stainless steel strap, likely sold during the 1980’s. Also located near the deceased was a ladies gold ring, set with a garnet and two small diamonds.
Attached is the flyer containing images of the evidence collected at scene along with images of three separate forensic artistic reconstructions.
The flyers are being hand-distributed, to targeted neighborhoods within Durham Region, by a contracted distribution agency and will arrive to homes which border Highway 401 between Pickering and Bowmanville over the next three weeks.
Investigators are asking the general public to view the contents of the flyer and contact police with any new information which might assist in the identification of this unidentified female. All information will be investigated.
Anyone with new information is asked to contact Det. Chuck Nash (ext. 5400) or D/Cst. Murray Rose (ext. 5420) of the Major Crime Homicide Unit at 1-888-579-1520. Anonymous tips can be made to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS) or www.durhamregionalcrimestoppers.ca and tipsters may be eligible for a cash reward of up to $2,000.
