July 15, 2000 - April 8, 2009
May justice be served sweet child.
Victoria Stafford was abducted and murdered and allegedly sexually assaulted on April 8, 2009. Sweet Victoria was abducted by Terri-Lynne McClintic who lured Tori to a waiting car after school on April 8, 2009 in Woodstock, Ontario, Canada.
Her body was found on July 19, 2009 in Mount Forest, Ontario.
Terri-Lynne McClintic has pleaded guilty to the first degree murder and abduction of Victoria (Tori) Stafford and is presently serving a life sentence (25 years without parole). Her alleged accomplice, Michael Rafferty is on trial for first degree murder, sexual assault causing bodily harm and kidnapping. Michael Rafferty pleaded not guilty to these charges.
Yesterday the court in London, Ontario, Canada heard closing arguments from Crown Attorney Kevin Gowdey. Today, Justice Thomas Heeney, will give jurors their charges (rules to follow in deliberations) and then the jury will deliberate right after this.
Victoria loved butterflies, the colour purple, Hanna Montana, Bratz dolls, shopping, and the movie High School Musical. She was a spunky girl who was loved very much by her mom Tara McDonald, father Rodney Stafford and brother Daryn.
