- May 1995: Pamela Bonn's body, bound in sheets and blankets, was found by two boys walking through Mausser Park, near Stirling Avenue South in Kitchener. Forensic evidence and witness accounts found that the 39-year-old Kitchener woman was beaten to death in Andy Vanezis's apartment at 105 Mausser Ave. and her body was wheeled in a large recycling bin to the neighbouring park.
After stubbornly maintaining his innocence for 12 years, Vanezis pleaded guilty to manslaughter in September 2007 for killing Bonn in a drunken rage. The admission came on the eve of his fourth murder trial, which would have made him the first Canadian to be tried four times for the same killing.
Vanezis was convicted twice by a jury, but each conviction was overturned by the Ontario Court of Appeal. His first trial ended in a hung jury.
