Innocence Canada calls for review of Christine Jessop investigation

Innocence Canada calls for review of Christine Jessop investigation

Hamilton, Halton, Niagara and area news from CHCH – Hamilton, Halton, and Niagara news..

Innocence Canada is calling for an independent review of the police investigations into the murder of Christine Jessop in 1984.

The group, which advocates for the wrongly convicted, says invaluable lessons can and must be learned from this 36-year “debacle.”

Police arrested and charged Guy Paul Morin, Jessop’s then-24-year-old neighbour, with her death.

Morin was exonerated in 1995.

It says Durham Regional Police and Toronto Police Service have to be held accountable now that a suspect has been named as Christine’s killer.

Earlier this month, Toronto Police announced that DNA evidence indicated Calvin Hoover, then 28, had sexually assaulted Jessop.

They said he would have been charged with her murder if he were alive.

Hoover killed himself in 2015.
