Tori Stafford Wiki, Tori Stafford Bio
Tori Stafford Wiki: Victoria Elizabeth Marie “Tori” Stafford (July 15, 2000 – April 8, 2009) was a Canadian girl who was abducted from Woodstock, Ontario, on April 8, 2009, raped, tortured and murdered. Her body was found on July 19 in a wooded area in rural Ontario, positively identified in a news conference held on July 21. Her disappearance and the subsequent investigation and search were the subjects of massive media coverage across Canada.
The police response to the situation as it developed and their failure to announce an Amber Alert has been criticized by the public and has recently been the focus of a review of the Amber Alert system in Canada. The circumstances of her death were unknown to the public until a publication ban was lifted in December 2010.
Abduction, murder and investigation
At around 3:30 pm on Wednesday, April 8, 2009, Stafford left Oliver Stephens Public School to go home. and was captured on security camera at 3:32 pm being led down Fyfe Avenue, Woodstock, by a woman. When she failed to return home, she was reported missing by her grandmother, Linda Winters, at 6:04 pm.
The case was featured in April 25, 2009, an episode of America’s Most Wanted. The initial investigation was led by Oxford Community Police Service, but then turned into a joint operation with the Ontario Provincial Police.
On Tuesday, July 21, 2009, at 9:00 am, police confirmed that remains found near Mount Forest two days earlier were those of Stafford. Stafford’s body was naked from the waist down, wearing only a Hannah Montana T-shirt and a pair of butterfly earrings that she had borrowed from her mother. Her lower half was significantly decomposed. During an autopsy, it was determined that she had suffered a beating which caused lacerations to her liver and broken ribs and her eventual death was the result of repeated blows to the head with a claw hammer.
In October 2018, McClintic was controversially moved to the Okimaw Ohci Healing Lodge in Saskatchewan, run by the Correctional Service of Canada. She was granted the motion as an Aboriginal, but whether she is actually Aboriginal has not been confirmed and has been disputed by a family member. The lodge, a minimum/medium-security prison is unfenced but monitored 24 hours a day with video cameras. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau faced increased scrutiny for acknowledging he did not have the right to return McClintic to a maximum security prison since that falls with commissioner of Correctional Services. The CPC MP Candice Bergen introduced a motion in Parliament to condemn and overturn the decision; the motion generated a day’s acrimonious debate and was defeated 200–82, with all Liberal MPs voting against it. Under increasing public pressure, the Minister of Public Safety Ralph Goodale issued an order for Correctional Service Canada to review the decision and the general policy. On 7 November, Goodale announced McClintic would be returned to a federal prison, and regulations would be made stricter for transferring long-term prisoners to healing lodges. She was transferred to the multi-level Edmonton Institution for Women.
