Toronto Police make new appeal for information in case of woman pulled from lake

Detective says family deserves to know what happened to Kasandra Bolduc

A fresh appeal from Toronto Police for information about how Kasandra Bolduc wound up dead in Lake Ontario, wrapped in plastic bags.

Detective Greg Forestall said Friday investigators still aren't sure how the 22-year-old died. The results of the autopsy and toxicology tests are inconclusive.

The 22-year-old's body was found in the water at the foot of Yonge St in May 2013. Her family in Niagara had reported her missing in December 2012.

Forestall says they are trying to pinpoint Bolduc's movements between the last time she was spotted in November 2012 and when her body was found.

Bolduc is thought to have ties to the sex trade. Forestall suggests a lifestyle that involves drugs, sex and crime could be keeping people from coming forward.

"I want it clearly understood, that members of the public who do hold information about Kasandra's last days can be assured that the most critical question determining how she died and discovering why she was found discarded in the waters of the Toronto Harbour, and not so much how people choose to lead their lives".

"I believe that at the end of the day", Forestall continued, "that Kasandra's family deserves the right to know the specifics of her death, and certainly Kasandra's young daughter should be afforded the truth."

Anyone with information about Kasandra's Bolduc's death or movements is asked to call police at 416-808-1400 or to contact Crime Stoppers.
