If I recall, a video was shown by the defence showing a car that could have been driven by DO, going pass a ctv camera 3 times.  The driver had on a white shirt, and I wondered if it really was DO.  No jacket,  and shirt was white. Or was the ctv film black and white only?

The jacket also had lots of blood stains on the inside of the jacket. Perhaps someone who is computer savy might be able to bring them up, so we may have a look at them again.

The dry cleaner claimed that he did not see blood on the jacket. This does not compute. I think the cleaner lied. After all he had a reputation for spotless cleaning to defend. 

I think DO went back to RO's picked up the log book from the table, placed it in the bag and removed the hammer and murdered his Dad.  Thus, no blood on the log book.  I also believe it is very possible that DO had more than one Sobey's bag.
Don't know about you, but one bag is never enough to cart home groceries.
Thus the clean Sobey's bag in the trunk of his wife's car.  DO claimed that he drove his wife's car that day.

You should try again...like you say, it’s been over 20 years and they will most likely have you on file.

It’s hard to predict how a perp will react...Lets just say, if you fight back...they may kill you, but if you comply, they won’t harm you. Or, you may fight back and they may take off running.
i am Of the opinion Sonias murder was more personal...but that’s just my opinion...and we just don’t have enough info.

Is it possible that Sonia was attacked and killed by someone who quickly fled the country? Yes. Well, guess what. There is a history of Chilean gangs breaking into homes in the Halton area, including Oakville.

These people often dress like construction workers. Would they buy work clothes in Canada to fit in? Would they buy the most expensive work boots for this purpose? I don't think so. Would they own and register vehicles? I don't think so. It is said that they prefer to avoid violence, but what if they couldn't avoid it?

The same thing is happening in the U.K.

In 2010, a Toronto woman was deported for affiliating with a Chilean gang in Canada. So obviously one gang has been around since at least 2010 in Toronto.

It is well past time to consider all possibilities. It's almost nine years since Sonia was murdered. There were also gangs operating in Oakville in 2007..

Maybe it's just a feeling but I will say that I don't think she wandered off in to the woods on her own never to be found. The main reason I feel this way is actually the cigarette butts in her car. I just know this is a strange occurrence ....she was not a fan of smoking - no matter what her mental state.

Just curious, ::anna, do you know if the cigarette butts were ever tested for DNA? Also, do you get access to the file after 20 years?


I do not know if the butts were ever tested. I'm assuming they must have some DNA as they have taken mine and many others. I did send in a FOIP several years ago but was denied any information. I think I still have the letter they sent back to me so I will look for it and see how they responded exactly. I could try again now that we're over twenty years.

Are you familiar with the murder of Audrey Gleave in 2010? I don’t know if there are any commonalities between these two cases.

The list of crimes solved using DNA websites keeps on growing. Take a look at the impressive number of cases cracked by family tree genealogy:

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_perpetrators_of_crimes_arrested_or_identified_with_GEDmatch.com

Family Tree DNA has now entered the fray.

Will Sonia’s killer’s DNA be submitted? It only takes one relative to step forward and submit a sample to one of these sites.

The FBI Will Pay You $50,000 To Crack This Cold Case
By Meagan | Shared | Aug 23, 2017

In 1992, Tammy Zywicki disappeared. The Iowa college student was driving from her home in New Jersey to college when she was last seen alive on August 23, 1992. She was standing next to her broken-down Pontiac T1000 on the interstate.

Her car was found abandoned by a state trooper that afternoon, and that evening her mom reported her missing.

Zywicki's body was found a week later in Missouri, wrapped in a blanket and covered with duct tape. She had been stabbed and strangled.

Witnesses say they saw Zywicki on the interstate, with a tractor-trailer parked behind her car. Others say it was a pickup truck, not a trailer.

The Investigation

The FBI worked with state police to form a task force to try and solve Zywicki's case. They looked at any possible relations to other cases. Any truck or tractor driver suspected in other murder cases or sexual attacks were looked at. The search spread from California to North Carolina, but nothing showed up. One year after the investigation started, the task force disbanded.

But now police think they might have a lead, and they need your help.

New Technology

One week before the 25th anniversary of Zywicki's disappearance, the FBI is reaching out to the public for help in finding her killer.

"After 25 years, the murder of 21-year-old Tammy Zywicki remains unsolved, but the FBI and the Illinois State Police believe new techniques for testing DNA may help reveal the killer’s identity," the FBI posted on Facebook.

“These cold case homicides are always difficult cases,” said Lt. Jeff Padilla, an Illinois State Police detective who has been working on the investigation for the past six years, “but this case has so much evidence that still exists, it should help us be able to bring justice to Tammy and her family.”

The bureau now has access to new forensic techniques for DNA extraction, and believe re-testing the 200 pieces of physical evidence they have could help crack the case.

“I’m hopeful this new technology will help us,” Padilla said. “I am convinced the DNA and the suspect are in the case file. It’s just a question of finding them.”

That's where the public comes in. Many of Zywicki's items are still missing, such as her Cannon 35mm camera, a wristwatch with an umbrella on the face, and a distinctive patch issues by Zywicki's soccer team for only one year. All of them are believed to have been kept by the killer. The FBI is hoping people who might recognize these items step

“There continues to be a $50,000 reward offered in this case,” she added. “Even after 25 years, a concerned citizen doing the right thing can help us solve this case.”

JoAnn Zywicki

Though it has been 25 years since her daughter was killed, JoAnn Zywicki is not giving up hope of catching her killer.

“I’m glad to see they are pursuing that,” she said. “It’s good to see the FBI and the Illinois State Police working together.” She added that her daughter’s tragedy “has brought a lot of attention to how many cold cases we have, and that’s important.”.

“It always amazes me how many people remember Tammy in different ways,” she said. “She did make her mark. She would have been a very successful person. She was well rounded and had a lot of interests, and she was very motivated.”

If you have any information on Tammy's disappearance, you are encouraged to contact your local FBI office or submit a tip online.

Maybe the police were "man handled by the political system" to the point that they quickly got tired of "going through the motions" of investigating guys they "knew" didn't do it.... because many knew who did!  Maybe they weren't lazy or inept.  ::)
