Search For Sonia Varaschin’s Killer Continues After 13 years

KAWARTHA LAKES-It has been 13 years since 42-year-old Sonia Varaschin was murdered and investigators are still searching for her killer. Investigators are once again asking for the public’s assistance.

On August 30, 2010, officers from the former Orangeville Police Service (OPS) began an investigation after Sonia Varaschin’s white Toyota Corolla was found abandoned behind a business on Broadway in downtown Orangeville. On the same day, OPS requested assistance from the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP). On September 5, 2010 her remains were found in a wooded area just off of Beechgrove Side Road in Caledon.


Over the past 13 years, investigators say they have not given up hope that someone has the missing piece of information that will help identify the person(s) responsible for Sonia’s murder and bring resolution to her family. The homicide investigation remains active under the direction of the OPP Criminal Investigation Branch. The OPP will never close an unsolved homicide.

A $50,000 reward continues to be offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible for the murder of Sonia VARASCHIN. Over 1,500 tips have been received from the public. Investigators continue to seek public assistance for information that will lead to an arrest.

Anyone with information, no matter how minor, is asked to contact the OPP at 1-888-310-1122 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS) or ontariocrimestoppers.ca.

With the passing of federal Bill C-18 you will no longer be able to access local news on Facebook or through a Google search once the bill is enacted. That means you won’t be able to find Kawartha 411 News on Facebook or through a Google search. This will devastate local news across the country including here in Kawartha Lakes. Contact your local member of parliament to let them know that local news matters to you and you want them to work with Google and Meta to come to an agreement.
