A Little Bit About Amanda's Case: 

Amanda was last seen August 1991 (at the age of 27) at her residence on Enfield Place, Mississauga by her mother. There is speculation that she has connections to the United States. She reportedly
frequented the Bloor and Lansdowne area of #Toronto which at the time was a dangerous and high crime area.

The Missed Lives Project is trying to locate the high school she attended to track down her friends and family for more information and leads. According to current school boundaries, Rudge would have gone to TL Kennedy Secondary School, which has no record of her attending. Other options outside of that boundary (that would have been open in the 1977-1982 time frame that she attended high school) would be Woodlands Secondary School, Port Credit Secondary, and Applewood Heights.

The Case Of "Valentine Sally"


Estimated Age: 16-23 years old
Race: White
Gender: Female
Height: 5'4" to 5'6"
Weight: 120-130 lbs.
Hair Color: Blonde, straight and about 9.5 inches in length.
Eye Color: Blue
Distinguishing Marks/Features: Rough, well-healed scars on the top of the left foot. A 2-inch diagonal scar on the back of her right thigh. Three moles above her right breast and 1 mole on her upper left leg. Left ear or possibly both ears pierced (right ear missing due to animal activity). She had recently undergone preparation for a root canal.
Dentals: Available. Tooth #19 (lower molar) had been drilled in preparation for a root canal approximately one week prior to her death. Teeth # 1, 16, 17 and 32 not erupted.
Fingerprints: Not available.

DNA: mtDNA and nucDNA available.

The Case of "Valentine Sally"

The face-down body of a white female, aged seventeen to twenty-four was discovered under a tree in Williams, Coconino County, Arizona, on February 14, 1982.

Death had occurred on or around February 1. Because the remains were located on Valentine's Day, the victim was nicknamed "Valentine Sally." The victim was approximately five feet five inches tall and weighed 120 pounds and had strawberry blond hair, which was straight and around ten inches long, and blue eyes. The victim, who was killed by either suffocation or strangulation, wore Seasons brand jeans with a handkerchief and an earring in her left ear. It is unknown if her right was pierced, as the right ear was not recovered. A distinct white sweater with thin red stripes and a bra were found near the remains, which may have belonged to the victim.

It is possible that the victim was seen at a truck stop in Ash Fork, Arizona in early February of the same year. Valentine Sally appeared to have an incomplete root canal on one of her molars, which may have caused an infection that she suffered from. Distinct marks on the body were a scar on her right thigh and on her left foot. In 1984, the girl was misidentified as a runaway, who was later located alive in 1986. Because of decomposition and scavenging animals, her fingerprints could not be obtained, although her DNA and dental charts were.

Clothing: Red and white horizontal striped pullover sweater, designer Seasons blue jeans (size 9), and a bra (size 36C).
Jewelry: Unknown

Additional Personal Items: White handkerchief.

A Young Girls' Life Cut Short - The Cold Case Of Patricia Lupton



Case: 2/1959

Name: Patricia Lupton
Alias: 'Pat' to her immediate family, 'Patsy' to her extended family
Murdered/Body Found: March 9, 1959
LocationToronto, Ontario, Canada
Date Of Birth: July 4, 1946
Age:12

A Little Bit About Patricia's Case: 

On or about February 16, 1959, 12-year-olds Patricia Lupton, Brenda Walker and Lucy Novak and 11-year-old Maureen Monaghan, friends and neighbors in the Toronto suburb of Scarborough, saw a notice posted on the bulletin board at the A & P supermarket then located at Kennedy Park Shopping Plaza, at Kennedy Road and Eglinton Avenue East. The notice called for "applications from babysitters": the girls, having all had experience babysitting for their neighbors, put their names, addresses and phone numbers on the accompanying list. (Patricia, Brenda and Maureen were trying to save up $20 apiece to go to Camp Sherbourne, near Bolton, Ont., the following summer.) Three weeks later, on March 9th, Patricia  received a call from a man answering the ad. This man, identifying himself as "Mr. Johnson," said that he and his wife were going to visit their ailing infant son in hospital, and therefore needed a babysitter for their slightly-older son. (Brenda, at this time, was bedridden with the flu and Maureen's line was busy; Lucy was never called.) Patricia agreed to come to Kennedy Park Drugs, in the same plaza, where "Mrs. Johnson" would pick her up. With her love of small children in general, Patricia had become highly regarded both by the children she'd babysat in the past and by their parents: therefore her own parents, Albert and Bridget Lupton, felt safe letting her accept the job. Nonetheless, when she left home at 6:20 to keep the appointment, she agreed to check in with them upon reaching the address. By seven o'clock Patricia had failed to call. Four hours later, on the CBC-TV news, her anxious family learned that she had been found dead at about 7:20 in a snowbank on McCowan Road, less than two miles from her home. She had been strangled with her own scarf; though she was not sexually assaulted, the somewhat-disarrayed state of her clothing, plus bruises to both her knees, made it probable that sexual assault had been attempted.

The next day, upon learning of her friend's violent death, Maureen Monaghan gave up babysitting. Also that same day, Ontario's then-Attorney-General, Kelso Roberts, asked supermarket chains to ban babysitting ads from their bulletin boards. Patricia's death fed already-high public outrage in a city which had seen the several horrific and unsolved murder cases between 1947 and 1956.

Name: Susan Cadieux
Date Of Birth: December 21, 1950
Murdered/Body Found: January 7, 1956
Location: London, Ontario, Canada
Age: 5 Years

A Little Bit About Susan's Case: 

On Friday, January 6, 1956 at about 7:15pm, 5-year-old Susan Cadieux was playing in the schoolyard of St Mary's School located at 345 Lyle St with her older brothers and another girl from the neighbourhood.  The Cadieux family lived across the road at 665 York St, not far from the school.

At approximately 7:45pm, a man approached the group and spoke with Susan who relayed to the other children that the man was goingto give her something.


The male also told them that he was supposed to meet with the St. Mary's church priest and stated that he lived on York St. as he pointed his finger towards King St.

When the children got distracted by a nearby fall on the ice, the male walked away with Susan.

By 8:00pm, Susan's brothers ran home to tell their parents what had happened and a search for Susan began.  The London Police Force became involved in the search by about 9:30pm that night and by 1:30am on the morning of January 7, over 300 people were searching for Susan.

At 10:08am, Susan Cadieux's fully clothed body was found at the rear of Roy James Construction located at 609 William St. alongside the CPR spur line.

If you have any information about the death of Susan Cadieux please contact us.

In the 1950's police sketches were actually done by hand.  The picture below is a sketch of the male who led Susan away.
Sketch of the male last seen with Susan Cadieux

He was  described as white, 30-40 years old, tall, thin, and unshaven.  He was wearing a light brown overcoat which was unbuttoned, unbuckled black galoshes that flapped openly, and a dark Russian style or army Melton hat with ear flaps.

Susan was playing in the playground of St Mary's School on the southwest corner of Lyle St at King St. Her body was found approximately 9 blocks to the north west at 609 William St near the northwest corner of Central Ave at William St.
