Six years ago a murder shocked the town of Orangeville and surrounding communities. The case has puzzled police and despite help from both the RCMP and the FBI, Sonia Varaschin’s killer has never been caught.
Sonia Varaschin, a well liked and respected nurse, was 42-years-old when she was reported missing on the morning of August 30th, 2010. That same day, her car was found blood stained in the alley behind Orangeville town hall and in her home, blood everywhere. Varaschin’s body was found just a few days later near Beech Grove sideroad in Caledon.
DNA believed to belong to a suspect was retrieved earlier in the investigation, but police have yet to make an arrest. Last year police released footage of two people the night of the crime in a gazeboo near where Varaschins body was found. They have since come forward and have been cleared. Few details have been release on the investigation but police say the killer wore a specific type of boot sold only at Mark’s Work Wearhouse.
Once again police are appealing for the publics help in solving this case. They say no detail is too small or insignificant to report. They’re offering a $50 000 reward to anyone who provides information that leads to the arrest and conviction of Varaschin’s killer.
