Tori Stafford - killed by Michael Thomas Rafferty & Terri-Lynne McClintic

Post  Guest on Thu 30 Apr - 22:55

Here are the details of a stranger abduction case I've been following in Toronto. Tori is an eight year old georgous girl. The other day I found an article on statistics for stranger abduction. I'll try to find it cause I think it's important to the outcome here. Will keep you up dated, suffice to say, things aren't always as they seem. Oh and BTW, within a few days of Tori's disappearance, Mom set up a fund, Tori's biological father's family want the fund to come secondary to the search.

A 29 yr old man and an 18 yr old woman were today arrested for the murder and concealment of Tori Stafford. At least one of the arrested is known to Tori's mother. Looks like it wasn't a case of rare stranger abduction.

May she rest in peace :(http://www.cbc.ca/canada/toronto/story/2009/05/20/tori-stafford.html?ref=rss

Police confirm the remains found Sunday near Mount Forest are those of the missing Woodstock girl
By PATRICK MALONEY


Remains are Tori Stafford's


Police say dental records were needed to confirm that remains found Sunday are those of missing Woodstock, Ont., girl Tori Stafford. The eight-year-old girl was last seen almost 3 1/2 months ago as she left her school with a dark-haired...

Tara McDonald, mother of missing 8-year-old Tori Stafford, doesn't address the media for the first time since she started holding daily news conferences on her front lawn. WOODSTOCK -- It may be several weeks before the body of Victoria (Tori) Stafford is returned to her loved ones.

Investigators confirmed yesterday that remains found Sunday near Mount Forest are those of the Woodstock girl who disappeared April 8, but further forensic tests could delay a formal funeral by as much as a month, the Stafford family says.

"They (police) said it could be some time yet," said Doreen Graichen, Tori's paternal grandmother. "It could be from a week to a month. They were very general.

"There are some ways it's a relief, because now we know where she is, but it's not what we wanted to happen. I just feel kind of numb."

Stafford's family, aware of the discovery in rural Wellington County on Sunday, was told Monday night the remains were Tori's, dental records having been used for confirmation.


Yesterday, Rodney Stafford said his daughter's funeral will be private, a public memorial already held June 6. He, too, expressed some relief amid the sadness.

"With the positive identity (done), we know where she is and we'll be able to bring her home and lay her to rest," Stafford said.

Tara McDonald, Tori's mother, yesterday grieved privately, addressing reporters at her home through a hand-written note taped to the front door. "Give us peace and time to process everything that is happening," it read. "I will contact the media if I wish to speak to anyone."

Though it's been nearly two months since two Woodstock residents, Michael Thomas Rafferty and Terri-Lynne McClintic, were charged with kidnapping and killing Tori, her family admitted a glimmer of hope remained she might still have been found alive.

Sunday's recovery -- made by veteran OPP Det-Sgt. Jim Smyth, who found the remains after he turned down a rural lane near Mount Forest on a hunch -- has removed any doubt.

The case's lead investigator was relieved to have the uncertainty over.

"We're just very thankful we now have this closure and we can bring Tori home," OPP Det.-Insp. Bill Renton said yesterday. "We're all parents, we all have nieces and nephews. A case of this type is extremely difficult."

Smyth was driving along the Sixth Concession of Arthur Township when he saw an area similar to what police were seeking -- "with the house close to the road and field access opposite the home" -- and turned down a laneway, said Wellington OPP Const. Mark Cloes.

"He was just a detective driving up the road and said 'Geez, that's looks good. Let's take a look in there.'"

Calls requesting an interview with Smyth were not returned, though he has said "something clicked" when he saw the rural setting.

Investigators were back at the scene yesterday, searching for more evidence, Renton said. He declined to discuss what led investigators to that area but said McClintic, the 18-year-old accused who had joined police on earlier searches, hasn't been out of custody in some time.

Investigators don't expect anyone else to be charged.

The investigation continues. A tip line dedicated to the case -- 1-866-825-4222 -- will remain active and police are still looking for a car's rear seat that's believed to be connected to the crime, Renton said.

Rod Freeman, the new chief of the Oxford Community Police, said he expects Woodstock to begin a "long healing process" following the discovery.

"Certainly, we hope that returning Victoria to our community and to her family will bring some sense of relief to Tara McDonald and Rodney Stafford and all the family," he said.

Stafford, who yesterday described the last three months as "a living hell," expressed similar hopes as he pushes ahead with plans for a cross-country bike ride in support of Child Find Ontario, a charity that helps search for missing children.

"Everybody's got to continue moving on, we have to," he said. "You can't just stop."

Very sad, but at least they've caught the people that did this terrible crime by the sounds of things.
