Brampton - A body pulled from a pond north of Toronto is thought to be that of a missing woman from Brampton. Peel Police said that there is a reasonable suspicion that the body found Sunday is that of Raquel Junio who was reported missing on Thursday.
Police were searching the area in Palgrave, Ontario when the body was found in a pond. CBC News reports that Const. Adam Minnion, Peel Police, said that, "We have reasonable suspicion at this point to believe that that is the body of the victim involved in the kidnapping." Minnion added that they had a lead concerning today's search location. The identify of the body can not be confirmed until a post-mortem examination is completed. That exam will take place on Monday.
Co-workers of Raquel Junio held a vigil outside of the thrift shop where she worked near Kennedy and Steeles in Toronto. A picture of the missing woman smiled at those attending on a table. Friends and co-workers lit candles and flowers placed near the photograph.
On Monday a portion of sales at Talize thrift shop will go to a donation for the children of Junio. She has a teenage son and young daughter, 3.
On Sunday Gary Murray, 42, of Brampton was charged with kidnapping, forcible confinement and assault.
Macdermid Ermacora, 43, remains in custody charged with kidnapping, forcible confinement and assault. He and Junio were separated.
Minnion started that Ermacora and Murray were friends.
