The Ontario Provincial Police say they have some new information to share from their investigation into the murder of Sonia Varaschin.
Investigators say they recently consulted with criminal profilers from the FBI's Virginia-based Behavioural Analysis Unit, behavioural science experts from the Ontario Provincial Police and the RCMP, as well as homicide detectives from police forces in the Toronto area and Ottawa.
In a statement, the OPP and the Orangeville Police Service said the public will be brought up to date on what they've learned at a news conference Thursday morning.
"At that time, members of the media will be briefed on aspects of this recent investigative summit and updated with regards to the ongoing investigation into Varaschin's murder," the statement said, noting that a member of Varaschin's family will also be on hand.
Varaschin was reported missing by her employer on Aug. 30.
The 42-year-old woman's body was found by a person walking a dog in a wooded area 12 kilometres southeast of Orangeville less than one week later.
Autospy results confirmed Varaschin was a victim of homicide.
No arrests have been made in the case.
