Niagara Regional Police are now offering up to $100,000 for information leading to the arrest of the person or persons who killed two women in Fort Erie earlier this year.

On January 19 at 4:17 am, the police received a 911 call about a disturbance that directed them to a Fort Erie house.

When they arrived, they found the bodies of two women – Juliana Pannunzio, 20, of Windsor and Christine Crooks, 18, of Toronto – both of whom had been shot.

After an investigation, they discovered the house had been rented for a party. An unknown number of people had already fled the scene by the time the police arrived.

The Niagara Regional Police Service is asking for public assistance in identifying the persons in the attached photo, taken inside the residence, specifically the male and female who are not wearing a mask.

Should you have any information or evidence related to this homicide investigation, please contact the Niagara Regional Police Service Homicide Unit Tip Line at (289) 248-1058.

In a release, they said, “The Regional Municipality of Niagara Police Services Board is authorizing a reward up to one hundred thousand dollars ($100,000) pursuant to By-Law 390-2021 for evidence leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for these two murders.

“Anyone who previously provided information to the Niagara Regional Police Service in relation to this investigation that comes forward with additional information may be eligible for this reward.”
