Toronto police say they will be providing an update on the 1984 murder of Christine Jessop on Thursday.
The nine-year-old went missing on Oct. 3, 1984 in Queensville, Ont., and her remains were found three months later on New Year’s Eve in a rural part of Durham Region.
The little girl had been raped and murdered.
The case drew national attention, especially when police charged Jessop’s neighbour Guy Paul Morin with the nine-year-old’s death. However, in 1995 Morin was exonerated due to advancement in DNA testing. He had served 18 months in prison.
Police said Jessop had plans to meet up with a friend that evening at a nearby park but that she never showed up. She was last seen buying a pack of gum at a local convenience store, close to her home.
To date, no one else has been charged in connection with the murder and police are still searching.
The update is scheduled for 2:45 p.m.
