A potential suspect (and possibly more) was considered to be Robert George Fitton, who was convicted and hanged for the rape and murder of 13-year-old Linda Lampkin in 1956.  As noted in the article from April 15, 1955 (April 15, 1995 pg. 14 Bread Truck seen?) one of the only regular users of the stretch of road where Judy Carter was found, was a mail carrier from Unionville (although a different driver is quoted in the article).  Another part of the article states that a truck from a Toronto bread company was seen parked at one of the bridges where Judy was found. 

The following is from a Supreme Court Judgement (October 24, 1956), R. v. Fitton (in regards the murder of Linda Lampkin)

"At approximately 9 p.m. on January 18, 1956, the respondent, who is an employee of a cartage agency under contract with the Post Office Department, took the deceased Linda Lampkin for a ride in his mail truck, and two hours later left her dead body on Commissioners Street in south central Toronto. When the body was discovered, the underclothing was ripped and torn, and it is in evidence that this young girl of 13 years old, had been the subject of sexual intercourse. Around her neck was a deep groove in the flesh tissue, which corresponded in size to the width of a scarf which she was wearing. The evidence reveals that she died of asphyxia due to strangulation."

Is there any other known information on Fitton?  Would he have any knowledge of this route or this area?
