Almost nine months after the disappearance and death of Sonia Varaschin, her mother is increasingly frustrated by an apparent lack of progress in the police investigation.
"I find that after so many months absolutely nothing has come out. You get angry. I find I feel worse now than right at the beginning," Michele Varaschin told CBC News in an exclusive interview. "Because not knowing what happened to her … Not knowing the way she died … Not knowing if there was a weapon."
Orangeville police, however, told CBC News that details about the homicide investigation will be released in the next couple of weeks regarding a new direction for the case. But the police won't say what that is just yet.
Varaschin, a 42-year-old nurse, went missing in late August. Her white Toyota Corolla was found at Orangeville Town Hall the same day her disappearance was reported. The car was bloodstained and both front doors and the trunk were open.
A bloody crime scene was also found at her Orangeville townhouse complex, but police said there was no sign of forced entry into the home, and police don't believe her killing was random.
Varaschin's remains were found by someone walking through the woods about 13 kilometres east of Orangeville eight days later.
But since then the trail has grown cold.
For Michele Varaschin, the pain of losing her daughter grows stronger each day.
"I find I am worse now than before. If I am alone in the house, I start to do some work and then I'm crying. I'm crying for what? I cannot stop," she said. "I guess because there is so much pain to deal with."
