Out of the Cold – Cold Case file #4 [Blue Line magazine]

From 2013 to 2014 two violent sexual assaults occurred in Mississauga and Richmond Hill. When DNA linked both crimes to the same unknown offender, a joint taskforce was formed between police agencies in York and Peel. York police currently have one of the largest cold case sexual assault units in Canada.
