The Ontario Provincial Police have never given up on solving the murder of Veronica Kaye and have launched another campaign to jog the memories of those in Mississauga who may have information about the case.
It was in 1980 when 18-year-old Kaye left her grandmother’s apartment on Markland Dr. in Etobicoke and never returned.
The date was November 7 and she boarded a Mississauga Transit bus that was headed to Square One. Along the way she stopped off at Cherish Photography on Hensall Circle to visit a friend that worked there. It was the last time she was seen alive.
After disappearing without a trace Kaye’s body was discovered eight months later in a wooden area on Humber Station Rd. in Caledon. Despite an in-depth investigation at the time, the case was unsolved and remains so until this day.
The OPP haven’t given up, however.
The OPP has just released a new video describing the circumstances of the murder with the hope it will prompt someone to come forward to provide clues that will solve the case.
In the video it describes how an unusual button was found during the investigation. The button wasn’t from her clothes and had been picked up near Kaye’s body. “The presence of this button remains an enigma for the investigators,” police say. “Chances are it could lead to the person who killed Veronica. Can you identify this button and possibly help shed some light on this matter?
Police say Kaye’s family still lives with the pain of her murder and wants answers.
