Police finally identify man who killed nine-year-old Christine Jessop

Police finally identify man who killed nine-year-old Christine Jessop

Police have said Christine had been abducted, sexually assaulted and stabbed near her home in Queensville, Ont., north of Toronto. When her parents came home, they found her backpack on the kitchen counter, but their daughter was gone.

In 1985, police arrested and charged Christine's then-24-year-old neighbour, Guy Paul Morin, in her killing. Investigators found traces of semen in her underwear.

Guy Paul Morin was sentenced to life, but his conviction was overturned in 1995 based on DNA technology. Police found DNA evidence on her underwear.

October 9, 2020 - Toronto Police identify person responsible for Jessop's murder using DNA and genealogical research.

"There are no winners in this announcement, and this is not a reason to celebrate", Ramer said. He was 28 at the time of the case and he died in 2015. Toronto police did not confirm that account.

The work to finally track down Jessop's killer involved "excellent police work", said CTV News Public Safety Analyst Chris Lewis. He was a neighbour, and his wife may have worked with Jessop's father. However, he was only identified as a potential suspect through genetic genealogy tracing done in the United States.

Police also put out a photograph of Hoover in hopes it might jog memories about his whereabouts at the time of the killing.

"The police just don't have the DNA profiles of family members of suspects in their labs".

"We can stop looking backwards now", he said.

Ramer acknowledged on Thursday that identifying Hoover as the killer has "generated many more questions" about the final moments of Jessop's life and that there is still more work to be done on the case. Confirmation then came from matching the semen to an autopsy blood sample of his at the Centre for Forensic Sciences in Toronto.

"If you find enough of these distant genetic matches, you can use these matches in conjunction with family trees.to triangulate where this DNA comes from and that can be used to find the identity of unknown victims, and in this case, an unknown perpetrator".

I am not here to revisit that historical investigation. "The justice system failed me but science saved me". "I think we are all genuinely relieved that the person actually responsible for this has finally been identified". "You're going to see a lot of cold case units where they have unsolved homicides, unsolved serial rapist cases, they're going to be turning to this technology", Sparling told CTV News Channel on Thursday. They also informed Morin, who spent 18 months in prison and a decade under a cloud before DNA evidence cleared him of the crime in 1995.

Police said Jessop had plans to meet up with a friend that evening at a nearby park but that she never showed up. "They have been through a terrible ordeal for 36 years since they lost Christine in 1984", he added. "I believe there's no greater acknowledgment of his exoneration than the continued efforts of the Toronto Police Service to identify the person responsible for Christine's murder".
