Sonia VARASCHIN, age 42, was reported missing to the Orangeville Police Service on August 30, 2010, after her vehicle was found abandoned, with blood smeared on its bumper, behind a store in Orangeville, Ontario.
There were no signs of forced entry to her home, but blood was found inside and Sonia was nowhere to be found. The suspects DNA was also found in her home.
For six days, a search party of police and volunteers scoured the area looking for Sonia.
Her body was discovered by a dogwalker in the Beech Grove Sideroad area of Caledon, Ontario, on September 5, 2010 in a wooded area just off Beechgrove Side Road.
Years later the case remains cold, with more questions surrounding her death than answers.
While police say they have received more than 1,500 tips, minimal information in the case has ever been released.
To this day, the Varaschin family does not know how Sonia died.
“I don’t know nothing. The only thing I know is where they found her body,” Michele told Catherine McDonald in an interview with Global News on an episode of Crime Beat. “You better believe I’m frustrated. I have a right to know how she died.”
Police are still offering a $50,000 reward to anyone who can provide police with information leading to an arrest.
