6th Anniversary of the death of Jessica Godin
On September 24, 2011 at approximately 2:20 p.m. a passer-by located the body of 18-year-old Jessica Marie Lynn Godin in a ditch on Du Parc Street, in Fournier, Ontario. That was six years ago and the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) is launching a public appeal in an attempt to re-invigorate this case.
Godin had been residing at a friend's house in Fournier, Ontario. The investigation revealed that she left the residence at approximately 6 p.m. on September 22, 2011 and was last seen alive that day between 7 p.m. and 8:15 p.m. in Fournier.
The post-mortem examination indicated that the injuries she sustained, and the location where her body was found, were consistent with being struck by an eastbound vehicle which would have been travelling on Du Parc Street in Fournier.
Investigators have conducted 119 interviews but have been unsuccessful in identifying the person(s) responsible and/or the vehicle involved in Godin’s death.
The OPP believe that someone has information that would help investigators solve this crime. The Government of Ontario is continuing to offer a $50,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for the death of Jessica Godin.
