However, police said they are paying particularly close attention to the online dating site Plenty Of Fish.com, and to men Varaschin might have dated.
At the same time, the Canadian Civil Liberties Association is condemning the mass DNA canvass.
However, the free online website Plenty Of is where Varaschin met and interacted with a variety of men, posting pictures and sending messages. The Ontario Provincial Police announced that they are going to canvass a select group of men who were over 18 at the time of the killing for voluntary DNA sampling.
Police will not speculate if jealousy was a motive for the attack on Varaschin, who was reported missing Aug. Police are casting a wide net around all her personal and work associates, including those at Southlake Regional Health Centre in Newmarket, where she had work conflicts before she quit a month or so before her murder.
Given further instrumental developments and the establishment of suitable matrix-matched standards for carbonates and other materials, we foresee that laser ablation-MC-ICPMS will play an increasingly important role in Quaternary dating research.
Only recently, DNA evidence recovered at the crime scene — in the form of semen, blood or saliva — was assessed as likely belonging to her killer. There was no evidence of forced entry into her two-storey townhouse on Aug. In an exclusive report on Monday, the Star reported that the nurse was active on the dating sites, even though she had a boyfriend.
Varaschin, a 42-year-old nurse who was working at a Mississauga pharmaceutical company at the time of her murder, was on a couple of dating sites while she had an on-again, off-again relationship with a boyfriend. The boyfriend, who has since moved to England, has been cleared as a person of interest.
