TORONTO - It’s been nearly 42 years since Yvonne Leroux’s lifeless body was found at the 16th Sdrd. of King Township between Jane and Keele Sts.

The grim discovery of the 16-year-old Weston girl, who had been last seen the evening of Nov. 29, 1972 near Humber River Hospital in North York, would be made a day later. The coroner’s office determined blunt force trauma to be the cause of death.

Now, York Regional Police, with the help of Toronto Police, is bringing this cold case back into the public eye and offering a $50,000 reward for anyone with information leading to an arrest.
