Katherine Janeiro homicide

Barrie police hope science will help catch a vicious killer, 13 years after a young mother was found brutally murdered in her home. Katherine Janeiro, 20, was found dead in her basement apartment at 258 Dunlop St. W., the evening of Oct. 10, 1994. The mother of a two-year-old daughter had been stabbed multiple times. Investigators are relying on continued developments in DNA testing to lead them to a suspect. Several exhibits have been resubmitted for testing at the Centre for Forensic Sciences, and additional evidence has been sent to a private laboratory in Thunder Bay. "The bottom line, this is a forensics case," Sgt. Dave Goodbrand said. "There are a lot of crimes solved years later based on scientific advancements. "There have been no arrests (in this case), and people may be complacent," he added, "but, with advances in technology, they have reason to be concerned."

It is a difficult life roll to live when a person is the survivor of a murdered loved one. My positive thoughts and prayers go out to Dawn that eventually her mind can rest and her heart healed when her Mother's murderer is caught and sentenced. A favourite poem of mine; from me to you Dawn.

What though the radiance
which was once so bright
Be now for ever taken from my sight,
Though nothing can bring back the hour
Of splendour in the grass,
of glory in the flower,
We will grieve not, rather find
Strength in what remains behind;

    -- William Wordsworth

I am glad her daugher is doing well with y'all, I hope her mothers case will get solved soon.

Unfortunetly, we do not have any more info. The police should be able to give you everything you need. Maybe you can get an update and ask them if they can take another look since so much time has passed.

Thanks

To get back on track and cast a wide net:

http://www.opp.ca/Intranetdev/groups/public/documents/investigative/opp_001937.pdf

I have heard it said that stabbing is 'personal' in the sense that you have to be physicaly very close to someone to effect the stabbing.  In that case blood from the victim could be transferred to the killer.  In the little I know blood is transferred and can be transferred in large amounts, especially if it was a particularly vicious stabbing.

If there was a lot of blood transfer then anyone seeing the perpetrator or his/her clothing afterward might notice an unusual amount of blood without a reasonable explanation.  That means there could be a witness.

Since the OPP poster says that a number of people went back to her apartment after the bar, then the chances are that the some of those were intoxicated on alcohol or drugs.  Even if the killer were in a blackout at the time, I would guess that blood transfer, auxilary cuts on themselves in combination with news reports at the time could indicate that they have knowledge that they did it.

If there was a group of people there that knew each other then chances are that one or some of them have an idea who the perpetrator is.

I wonder what sort of DNA evidence they have.  If it is auxilary blood from the perptrator, you would think that they would compare it to those in the group if they know who those persons are. 

Perplexing with the little info give so far...

I agree with Shwa. The police must have a suspect and are just waiting to prove it.

I focused on this qoute by the investigor

I'm sure this case will be solved. The person(s) responsble should be worried. I hope if lots of people were there, they will take the $50,000 and tip off the police.

Yeah Chris, that is an interesting quote.  The police officer says "people may be complacent."  That would suggest at least more than one person knows something.  It also suggests that should those others know something and not come forward, when the scat hits the fan they are going to be in the frontline along with the actual murderer...

Obviously the posting by "Angel of Sorrows" does indicate that she may have an idea of who committed this murder. She is very afraid. Where she is so afraid even to comment under a screen name, I feel sorry for her. She should at least call crime stoppers and give them her information. CS as they state, they do not want your name, they want your information. She definitely knows something that could be vital to solving this crime. It is so sad that someone has gotten away with this vicious crime. This person may have gone on to kill again. RIP Katherine. :o :o :o :o 8) 8) 8) 8)

I can't believe this is here...I was friends with Kathy for many years.  We grew up together and I have many fond memories of her and our times together.  I moved away with my family and although we kept in touch for a few years after, we lost touch.  I knew she had a daughter, but was never lucky enough to meet her.  I hope this case is soon solved and the appropriate person gets what he deserves!...I feel so sorry for her parents and can't imagine what this has done to them...hopefully they will soon get the answers they need to put this horrible act behind them.

A grieving family asks ‘Why?’
“So smart, happy and fun. All that for nothing” Dinora Janeiro wonders why her daughter was stabbed to death in a Barrie apartment.
By Linda Moorhouse - The Barrie Examiner
Friday October 14th 1994
 
NORTH YORK – Dinora Janeiro wonders how it could happen. How could her intelligent, attractive, fun-loving daughter be stabbed to death at the age of 20? “She was so smart, happy and fun. A good heart and soul,” she said. “All that for nothing.” Katherine Janeiro was found dead Monday evening in her Dunlop Street West apartment. Barrie police are still searching for clues that will lead to her killer or killers. “I want to know all, I will wait,” her father, Fernando Janeiro, said Thursday. “Somebody killed my daughter like a pig. I’m her father and I can’t even see her.” He was awakened early Tuesday morning by a police officer knocking at his front door. “I said, What happened?’ I had bad feeling and he said, ‘Your daughter passed away,” Janeiro said, tears welling in his reddened eyes. “I go crazy and said I wanna go, but he said, ‘No, nobody can go inside.’ “They said she was lying on the floor with a lot of blood all over her, stabbed, scratched on the face.” Since then, the Janeiros and their family have kept each other company in their North York home, waiting for information from the police. Detectives told him they have a few suspects in mind but wouldn’t discuss a possible motive. “They haven’t told me anything. I know more from the funeral director than the police,” Janeiro said. Katherine Janeiro grew up on a quiet street in a middle class neighbourhood, the only child of Portuguese immigrants Fernando and Dinora. They say she was a good student, who won spelling trophies and excelled in track and field. She had a good voice and entered talent shows at school. But at age 16 that all changed, Katherine left home with her boyfriend and moved to Barrie. A year later she had a baby girl, Dawn. About 10 months ago, Katherine and her boyfriend separated. She moved into the Dunlop Street basement apartment with her toddler.  “We asked her to come home, we have lots of room, but she said no, she was happy in Barrie and all her friends were there,” Fernando said. Her parents admit they didn’t know much about their daughter’s life in Barrie, just that she wanted to stay there. “She said she was always happy up there, always busy,” Fernando said, although she didn’t have a job. Rex Mero had visited Katherine, his cousin, several times in Barrie in the last few years. He was back in Barrie Tuesday, expecting to have the frim task of identifying her body. However, he was spared that ordeal. Police used her fingerprints for a positive identification. “She was caught up in the wrong crowd,” Mero said. “She separated from (her boyfriend) and unfortunately got in with the wrong people. “ “She was always able to help people come out of their depression, but she couldn’t help herself.” What the family wants most is for the people responsible to be caught and punished. Meanwhile, they’re making plans for a funeral Saturday in Toronto. Katherine’s daughter, who was with the Janeiros in North York when her mother was killed, wants to know when her mommy is coming home. “She’s smart and pretty, just like Katherine,” Dinora said softly. “Blue eyes and blonde hair just like her mother.”

Cops scan apartment for murder evidence
By Linda Moorhouse - The Barrie Examiner
Saturday October 15th 1994
 
Barrie police are checking into several leads in the recent killing of Katherine Janeiro, but won’t say if they have anything firm. “It’s a very painstaking, time consuming process,” Insp. Tom Bookey said. Janeiro, 20, was found in her Dunlop Street West basement apartment just before 8 p.m. Monday. Autopsy reports released late Wednesday revealed she died of multiple stab and cut wounds.  Members of the OPP are using a high-powered lighting device to scan the apartment for such things as fibres and hairs that normally wouldn’t be seen by the human eye. Once that process is complete, Barrie police will take physical control of the collected exhibits of evidence, Bookey said. It’s expected the examination will continue through the weekend. No murder weapon has been found and the time of death has not been released. This is the first murder in Barrie in 1994. Four murders last year also occurred in October. Fred Shapcott was found dead in his taxi cab. The bodies of Ellsworth Beers, Pam Constable and Scott Seabrook were found two days later in Beers’ Peel Street home. Barrie resident Eric Ross has been charged with all four murders. Police remain tight-lipped as to the circumstances surrounding Janeiro’s murder and possible suspects. “We can’t reveal anything that might hinder the investigation,” Bookey said. “We’re not sure if it’s random, but we definitely don’t have a serial murderer out there. Janeiro’s parents are preparing for their daughter’s funeral today in Toronto. In a personal interview Thursday, they expressed shock and anger over her death.

No firm leads in death
Police hopeful examination of body will yield clues
By Bob Bruton - The Barrie Examiner
Wednesday October 12th 1994
 
City police still aren’t saying much about the death of a 20-year old Barrie woman after a squad of investigators spent most of Tuesday at the apartment building where she died. The body of Katherine Janeiro, 20, was removed from 258 Dunlop St. West at about 7:45 p.m. on Tuesday and taken to Toronto for forensic testing. “We are investigating a lot of leads,” said Barrie police Insp. Tom Bookey. “It’s still a suspicious death, not a homicide. There is not cause of death.” Bookey said a laser scan of the body could help police determine the cause of death. At this point police are not saying how the woman died, or releasing any of the circumstances surrounding her death. Police said Janeiro lived in the apartment for about one year. She has a two-year-old daughter who was staying with grandparents over the weekend. Police officers, wearing rubber gloves, could be seen poking around in the yards of homes next to the apartment building. Police remain on the scene at the Dunlop Street West apartment complex, collecting forensic evidence. Relatives and friends of Janeiro have come by since the body was discovered. A teenager who identified herself as Leanne arrived at the scene late Tuesday afternoon wearing blue jeans and a jean jacket. Leanne said she had lived with the woman for the past two weeks. “She was a real sweetheart, always trying to help people out,” Leanne said. “I found out about it (her death) late Sunday night I was trying to call her.” She was then whisked away by a police investigator to be interviewed. Janeiro’s death is being investigated by Barrie city police, with help from the OPP identification Unit. If it is a homicide, it’s Barrie’s first this year and first since the Peel Street murders in October of 1993 – when the bodies of Ellsworth Beers, Pam Constable and Scott Seabrook were discovered. Two days earlier city cab driver Fred Shapcott was found dead in his taxi. Eric Ross has been charged with all four murders and awaits trial.

Police Probe Death
Woman’s body found in Dunlop Street apartment building.
By: Bob Bruton – The Barrie Examiner
October 11th 1994
 
City police remain at a Dunlop Street West apartment where a woman’s body was found Monday evening. The 20-year old woman was found in her apartment just before 8pm Monday. Police are investigating the discovery as a suspicious death. Police are not saying how the woman died, who discovered the body or the woman’s identity. Officers guarded the crime scene overnight and remain there today, but police are releasing few details. Insp. Tom Bookey said city police hoped to be able to release more information sometime today. The woman’s body was found in an apartment building at 258 Dunlop St. West. The city’s emergency command centre was on the scene, which was cordoned off with yellow police barriers. Other residents of the apartment were not allowed to park their vehicles in the building’s parking lot Monday night, and were told to enter the building through a side door instead of the main entrance. Police would not answer their questions about the events of the evening. Area residents who approached the scene Monday night and asked police what happened were also not given any answers. Neighbours said they heard nothing unusual.

Just wondering if this discrepancy was a typo or...? Leanne says she found out on Sunday night about the death and that she had been trying to call her, the articles however all state that the police were not aware of the death until Monday night.

It was what she said but not what she meant, she meant she must have been dead sunday. She didn't find out about the death until Monday. She has already been questioned about the timeline.

I think it's great that the government is offering a cash reward to solve this case. I don't know how often that  happens. Often it's the family and community that has to raise the money. Her daughter and her parents deserve answers. I also hope that the person who has a letter from Katherine in their possession will find it and submit it to police as well as a copy to her daughter.

IT does at least sound like they have DNA, so one day, they should be able to match this to a person.

Really Chris?  I didn't know that. Oh I hope they do! Testing gets better all the time, and the chances of solving with DNA are so much better than without.

I've researched this case to death and talked to those involved. Each person is still alive and well.

I can't imagine what it was like for Dawn to grow up without a mother. People scream police cover up every day. But the real ones that cover it up, are those that refuse to do the right thing. Did you go to the police with your info?

One-third of Barrie murders occur in October; No linkage to any cases, police say

For Barrie police, October is traditionally one of its busiest months when it comes to murder.

"October seems to be a common month to be involved with major crimes, like homicides," Sgt. Dave Goodbrand said.

Since 1987, Barrie police have investigated 10 deaths in October, which accounts for about one-third of all homicides in the city.

"There's no linkage in any of these cases," Det. Norm Meech said.

April Dobson, 40, was shot to death Oct. 14, 2005, on Browning Trail in the city's Letitia Heights neighbourhood. Her killer has never been caught.

The skeletal remains of Alexandra Flanagan, 33, were found Oct. 4 in a south-end city park. Her death is being treated as "suspected foul play" until a cause of death is determined.

The Campione girls - three-year-old Serena and one-year-old Sophia - were found dead in their mother's Coulter Street apartment, drowned to death, on Oct. 4, 2006. Their mother, Frances Elaine Campione, faces first-degree murder charges.

Katherine Janeiro, 20, was found stabbed to death in her Dunlop Street West apartment on Oct. 10, 1994. Her killer has never been caught.

Petra Elibrecht, 20, was found stabbed to death on Oct. 27, 1991, at 51 Dunlop St. E. Her common-law partner, Peter McMaster, now 38 years old, was convicted of second-degree murder and was paroled in May 2005.

Back in October 1993, Eric Ross, Barrie's most notorious mass murderer, killed four people. On Oct. 2, 1993, Fred Shapcott, a 46-year-old taxi driver, was found dead in his cab behind a Bayview Drive business. He died of blood loss from multiple stab wounds.

Two days later, the bodies of 85-year-old Ellsworth Beers, his 22-year-old granddaughter Pamela Constable and her friend Scott Seabrook, 28, were found in Beers' Peel Street home.

Several months later, a Letitia Heights woman was attacked in her home, her throat slashed. Ross was arrested and charged.

After maintaining his innocence for several years, Ross was convicted of first-degree murder in all four deaths. During the trial, court heard that drugs played a prominent role in Ross' disposition that weekend.

Next week, The Barrie Examiner will profile the cold-case files surrounding several unsolved crimes in the region. On Monday, April Dobson's murder is profiled.

SAP: That's a fantastic question to ask...especially since my sister's abduction was in October of 1995, and she was taken just outside of Barrie.

Lots of towns have fall fairs...not sure about Barrie, though.  Sept/Oct makes me think of the fairs.
