TORONTO – Ontario Provincial Police are looking to speak to two people caught on video tape in connection to the unsolved murder of Orangeville nurse Sonia Varaschin.
The grainy surveillance video of the individuals walking away from a gazebo in Alexandra Park in Orangeville was recorded around 5:58 a.m. on Aug. 30, 2010, the day Varaschin went missing.
OPP say the park is located behind the Orangeville Town Hall and is in an area close to where Sonia’s vehicle was found abandoned in the early morning hours of her disappearance.
Investigators say the two people are potential witnesses and are not considered suspects in the case.
Police started an investigation into the 42-year-old woman’s death after she didn’t show up for work at a Mississauga pharmaceutical company.

Investigators say Varaschin was “brutally murdered in her residence on Spring Street” in Orangeville.
“Our investigators are as committed to finding Sonia Varaschin’s killer today as we were when it began in 2010,” OPP Detective Inspector Shawn Glassford said in a media release.
“We are determined to bring justice to Sonia and her family and to that end we will continue to follow up on all tips and leads we receive and are asking the public to continue provide information to our investigators.”
Police have yet to identify any suspects in the case and in May 2011, investigators began collecting DNA samples from men in the surrounding area.
Authorities have offered a $50,000 reward for anyone with information leading to the arrest or conviction of the person or persons responsible for Varashin’s murder.
