COLD CASE: Who killed Veronica Lynn Kaye in 1981?

Veronica Lynn Kaye was doing the things 18 year olds do.

On Nov. 7, 1980, the pretty teenager left her Etobicoke apartment at around 1:30 p.m. and took a Mississauga Transit bus to visit a pal who worked at a photo shop on Hensall Circle.

Kaye then planned to go shopping at Square One.

“Veronica entered the [photography] store and met with her friend but gave no indication that anything was wrong,” police said.

Cops say she told her pal she had a ride to Square One.

She was never seen alive again. There was no car. There was no friend.

Eleven months later, her family’s worst fears came true when two men found her body on a trail in the Caledon area.

Now, the OPP have released a video hoping it will lead to information that will put the teenager’s killer behind bars and bring closure to her long-suffering family.

Police have also released a photo of a button found with her body.

According to cops, Kaye was wearing the same clothes in which she was last seen alive. They believe she suffered fatal injuries during a desperate fight for her life with the killer.

She was wearing a red ski vest, a maroon blouse, blue jeans and running shoes.

“A unique button was found with Veronica’s body that did not come from her clothing. Police want to identify the source of this button,” the OPP said in a news release.

Police are offering a $50,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or people responsible for her murder.

Anyone with information about the case is urged to call the OPP at 1-888-310-1122, or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-8477.
