Toronto police appeal for tips in death of Kasandra Bolduc
Bolduc, who once lived in Sudbury and Elliot Lake, was found dead in Lake Ontario in May 2013
Toronto Police are once again asking the public for information of the death of 22-year-old Kasandra Bolduc, pulled from Lake Ontario more than a year ago.
Bolduc, who hails from northeastern Ontario, was reported missing in November 2012, having last been heard from on Sept. 28, 2012.
Her body was discovered in a bag on May 22, 2013 by the Toronto police’s marine unit at the foot of Yonge Street in the waters of Lake Ontario.
Toronto Police maintain that her death was suspicious but also said that autopsies have not been able to determine exact cause of death.
They appealed to the public for tips today at police headquarters, reassuring that any help given can be anonymous.
Family also looking for answers
While police said they acknowledge her lifestyle can play a role, they reassured the public of the real priorities.
“The most critical question is how she died and discovering why she was found and not so much about how people to choose to live their lives," said a police spokesperson at a press conference Friday morning.
Since her death, Toronto Police have been working in conjunction with the provincial police, as well as Niagara Regional police, but have yet to yield any answers.
Police said they were mostly appealing to the public’s conscience and are hoping anyone who knows anything about Bolduc’s activities and whereabouts between her disappearance and the day she was found will come forward. They said they want her family, including her young daughter, to finally have some answers.
Anyone with information about the case can call investigators at 416-808-1400, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
