What a crying shame!   :'(  It doesn't look good.  It seems there is no reason that anybody would want to harm a woman like Sonia.  This is horrible for her family, her neighbors, for all of us. 

Please God, would it be too much to ask that she still be alive somewhere - injured perhaps, but still alive and fixable.  Let's pray for that.

Thanks debbiec, I have an awful time with maps and other sources pictures. Don't know why.

I'm with you Lost, on this tragedy and it not looking good. But there is so still hope. Let's just hope they find her and she can come back and she can become well. I think we can all feel it, these attacks and wanton acts on others just have to stop. About time we figure out how.

Note: Ms. Varaschin "was employed at the Southlake Regional Health Centre" .... She quit a month ago?  Ummm...LE should find out more and why....

http://news.nationalpost.com/2010/08/31/concern-mounts-for-missing-woman/Until about a month ago, Ms. Varaschin was employed at the Southlake Regional Health Centrehttp://www.thestar.com/printArticle/459545

Sometimes, we'd have to beware how much information the Internet can filter.  The Town of Orangeville displays her address on page 192:  http://www.orangeville.ca/cms/documents/2876/October_19_Council_Pkg_Web_Part_1.pdf
Although, Canada 411 does same.

It says Sonia quit her job at the hospital a month ago to persue another one, but it doesn't say if she had actually started at the new job, or where it was.....  I wonder.   
I will venture to say that Sonia knew her attacker, and info certainly points to her being attacked.    I believe she did have a boyfriend, anyone know any details?

With all that much blood loss one would think that the attacker would have known where to strike.  Maybe had a background in the scientific study of the human anatomy?

Jobo, re a love interest, I suggest LE should check her Facebook page to see what turns up, however, her Facebook profile remains private from the public.

Call me a cynic but I would really think it doesn't take rocket science to determine there was fould play.  What really slays me is some of the media reports of interviews given by the neighbours of a normally quiet area where people don't even lock their doors and yet in the normally quiet neighbourhood where nothing ever happens; in the wee hours of the morning neighbours heard yelling, loud noises and tires squealing..and no one bothered to investigate or call LE.  Same ole same ole.

Orangeville woman victim of 'foul play'
by IAN ROBERTSON,Toronto Sun
Last Updated: September 1, 2010 12:57pm

They have two crime scenes, blood and a woman who is nowhere to be found. Investigators looking for an Orangeville woman missing since Sunday night continued their canvas of neighbours Tuesday, all the while keeping her blood-stained vehicle and home under police guard.

Missing nurse Sonia Varaschin was the victim of foul play, the Ontario Provincial said in a midday announcement Wednesday.

No further details were released, but OPP Const. Jonathan Beckett said the investigation into the 42-year-old's disappearance Sunday from her Orangeville home.

From evidence forensic officers found in her Sprint St. house, Beckett told the Toronto Sun: "We believe she has met with foul play ... we're still treating this as a missing person investigation."

Police were called when the petite brunette failed to show up for work on Monday.

Her bloodied white Toyota Corolla was found parked in an alley near Broadway St.

It has been removed for forensic tests, Beckett said.

As with the search of her home, where blood was also found, he said "it takes times to process the scene."

Neighbours told reporters they heard screams from Varaschin's house around 3 a.m. Monday, one insisting tires squealed around the same time.

Police were also canvassing Orangeville residents and businesses on the third day, in their search for clues.

"The investigation is continuing," he said.

"We're continuing to follow up on leads," said Beckett, the spokesman for the joint OPP-Orangeville Police case.

Asked about reports of Varaschin having a boyfriend who visited her home, and that she recently quit her job at a Newmarket hospital, he said "we're not commenting on what her situation is, either at present or in the past."

Beckett also declined to provide specifics about evidence found at the home, saying they are key to the investigation.

He would also not comment on any search of her home phone or cell phone records, "it stands to reason every avenue is being explored."

A press conference is being planned for 3 p.m. to update the media.

Meanwhile, near Bolton, an Orangeville marked police cruiser plus two unmarked police vehicles were parked outside her parent's home on Albion Vaughn Rd.

An officer who answered the door told a Sun Media reporter the family had requested privacy and "now was not a good time" to speak with them.

A friend who went to school with Varaschin at Holy Family Elementary School, and kept in touch via Facebook as recently as two weeks ago, called her "a super nice gal."

Varaschin, described as 5-foot-1, 125 pounds, with light streaks in her brown hair.

Anyone with information was asked to call police at 519-941-2522 ext. 2211 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-8477.

Here's the short timeline:

Last seen Sunday evening

3 AM screeching tires and yelling was heard by a neighbour. 

9 AM a bloodied white Toyota Corolla parked in an alley near Broadway street, just minutes from her Spring Street townhouse,
off Alexandra Park, in the area of downtown Orangeville was found

Blood on the rear bumper of the car, doors and trunk wide open

Blood inside her home

Family reported her missing Monday morning when she failed to show up for work


***


LE should check whether the blood on the rear bumper is a match to Sonia's. 

IMO, it looks to me that Sonia took a late-night out, (Orangeville's Sobeys is open 24/7), hit something with her rear bumper and got into an altercation with someone. 

It was a nice warm evening, so if neighbours know of anyone who takes their dog for a late night walk in that neighbourhood, do follow up on this.

An update and an effort by police to dispel some rumours.

Police dismiss rumours about missing Orangeville woman

Evidence collected so far suggests the 42-year-old was not attacked by a stranger, Pritchard said, but likely by someone she knew.
The massive police investigative team that has been combing Orangeville since Monday includes cadaver dogs and experts in criminal profiling.

Pritchard said investigators have a working theory about what may have happened to Varaschin,blood-splattered white Toyota Corolla was discovered abandoned in a laneway near a downtown parkette early Monday morning, about a 15-minute walk from her home. More blood was found at her Sprint St. townhome.
All evidence suggests Varaschin led a healthy lifestyle and was a member of a close-knit loving family, police said.
Before her sudden disappearance, she lived quietly and alone. She loved the outdoors, listing mountain climbing, hiking and skiing

There will be rumours, speculations, assumptions, wagging tongues and just about everything under the sun -- which all will be heard out.  The last thing LE wants to do is miss something so trivial to the case in these early days.   :(

Since Sonia was searching for another job, where did she post her resume?  Monster.ca?  Hotjobs? Nursing sites?  After all it's been a month since she gave notice to the Southlake Regional Health Centre, she should have been busy with a job searches.  Were there any interviews or any connections she made in the past month?

I am uncertain as to how many doors Sonia's vehicle has but if all doors as well as the trunk were found open, in my opinion, more than one perp is involved here.  Anything regarding the the van that was in the area at the time Sonia's car was seen.  LE were asking that person to come forward.

In today's economy, quitting your job before you have another is highly unlikely unless you have good reason to leave your job. I would be checking heavily into that angle, at this point.

An article from the Toronto Star yesterday claims Sonia worked wth epilectic teens in the summer - but does not specify if that includes this summer.

Initial reports also claim 'she did not show up for work on Monday' and that started the search for her.
