Badgerow, who had been arrested in 1981 in connection with the brutal assault of a different young woman in the same area, was identified as a suspect in Werendowiczs killing in the late 1990s."

On her way home, court documents have said Werendowicz was dragged into a ravine, sexually assaulted, strangled, dumped in a creek and drowned.
His work station was 30 metres away from the phone booth. I was sleuthing due to the RB case being brought to retrial. I saw on his Linked In site that he has been at Mohawk College for several years up to 2015. AG (Audrey Gleave) apparently also attended Mohawk in her retirement, taking computer courses.
