I’ve been thinking about cold cases recently and how they do or don’t get solved. It’s almost always because of a DNA match or because someone finally talks. In the horrible 1983 rape and murder cases of Susan Tice and Erin Gilmour, Toronto police got a DNA match of an unexpected kind. The cases were linked not to a known suspect but to each other, a connection that hadn’t been made before. The two women had been attacked and killed by the same man.
What Police haven’t yet got and keep asking for is someone to talk as this video makes clear :
Here’s some more background on the case if you’ve never heard of it before.
