Oh boy. That area seems to have had its fair share. More connections than people know or was this all well known and discussed at the time ?

While Kelly's last name is spelled with an 'a' here and on the TPS website, I had difficulty finding any articles about her using that spelling in the library newspaper archives. I dropped the 'a' and found a few results. For the sake of consistency I'll use the spelling of her name without the 'a' for the rest of this post.

Kelly Anne Mombourquette went missing from a Rexdale group home on Warrendale Court in Etobicoke on October 3, 1987. On Monday, October 29, 1987, Kelly Mombourquette's nude body was discovered in the parking lot of 300 Yorkland Blvd. by a woman on her way to work. The 4'10, 82-pound girl died from a knife wound to the neck and had been severely beaten about the head.

At the time, police said that Kelly spent time in the downtown and Regent Park areas. Due to there being an absence of blood at the scene on Yorkland Blvd, police also said that it was likely she had been murdered somewhere else, with her body later being disposed of at this scene.

Kelly had been sentenced to time at the group home instead of a jail after a recent brush with the law, but had run away after two days. Several of Kelly's friends and acquaintences spoken to by the press said she began to get into drugs when she was only 11, becoming addicted to cocaine and crack and prostituting herself to feed her addictions.

While Kelly went missing from the group home weeks before she was found murdered, friends interviewed by the press claimed to have been with Kelly the Sunday night before she was found murdered in the basement of a Belshaw Place apartment building. Reportedly she told these friends that they had to leave because she had to meet a man about something. She apparently told her friends that if she didn't have the money the money the man wanted, he might beat her and her friends, which was why she requested that they leave. Another friend reported that Kelly had to meet a man on Old Mill Rd on Sunday night about purchasing drugs. This was at approximately 9:30 pm on Sunday night.

Eleven days after Kelly's body was found, three men were arrested and charged with first degree murder: Carlos Zambrano, 32, of River Street, Sharma Marajh, 39, of no fixed address, and Subash Raggoo, 24, of River St. All three were discharged after a preliminary hearing in Provincial Court. In March 1989, Marajh was sentenced to two years in prison for possession of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking, and simple possession. During a search of Marajh's River St. apartment in July 1987, police found a book containing a list of gambling debts owed to Marajh that the judge concluded also contained references to money owed for cocaine purchases.

Kelly's murder remains unsolved.

All of this information was found in older Toronto Star articles which I've attached to this post.

Not that I know of.
