Guy Paul Morin has issued this statement on the identification of Calvin Hoover as the killer of Christine Jessop in 1984:
This morning, two members of the Toronto Police Service came to my home and told me that they had identified the man who murdered Christine Jessop through DNA found on Christine’s clothing. I am relieved for Christine’s mother, Janet, and her family, and hope this will give them some peace of mind. They have been through a dreadful ordeal for 36 years since they lost Christine in 1984. I am grateful that the Toronto Police stayed on the case and have now finally solved it. When DNA exonerated me in January 1995, I was sure that one day DNA would reveal the real killer and now it has. Christine’s murder was a terrible and tragic event. In the circumstances, this is the only statement that I will be making. Guy Paul Morin c/o James Lockyer Lockyer Campbell Posner.
