Nicole MorinÂ totally vanished 22 years ago agedÂ eight while walking to an elevatorÂ in her Toronto apartment block to meet a friend who was waiting for her in the downstairs lobby.Â She never arrived.
Her unsolved disappearance marked a turning pointÂ for similar police investigations as it tookÂ a week before homicide were alerted. How much crucial forensic and witness evidence was lost in that time?
On July 30th, 1985, Nicole hadÂ left her motherâ€™s penthouse apartmentÂ at 10:30am and went to the lobby of the 20 storey apartment building to pick up the mail; they lived on the top floor. She then returned to the apartment and got ready to go swimming with a playmate.
Before leaving the apartment, Nicole had spoken to a friend through the building’s intercom and promised to be right down. The playmate waited about 15 minutes before buzzing the apartment again to find out why Nicole hadn’t arrived. The two girls had arranged to meet in the lobby and go to a supervised swimming pool at the rear of the building.
About 11:00am had Nicole said goodbye to her mother and left the apartment. No-one has seen her since she closed the apartment door and walked into theÂ hallway.
There are lots of interesting comments on this websleuth forum about how the abductor must have been someone in the apartment block who slipped through the police net. One of the comments mentions a website which saysÂ Nicole was recognised on a Dutch paedophile ring’s CD-Rom.
Nicole’sÂ case was one of a series of mysterious disappearances of young girls around that time. Christine Jessop, nine, went missing from herÂ home the October before Nicole vanished. Sharin Morningstar Keenan, also nine, was abducted in January 1983, and Alison Parrot disappeared July 1986 aged 11. All turned up dead, their bodies found, except Nicole’s. Other girls have also gone missing. The Morins spent many years and much money on private investigators.
Nicole’s father Art gave a very poignant newspaper interviewÂ to the Toronto Sun in 2005 to mark the 20th anniversary of her disappearance, distraught that there was still no explanation. He keeps a box ofÂ mementoes, including her school work and his Father’s Day cards. You can read the full interview in the comments. The picture on the right uses age progression techniques to show howÂ Nicole would look today.

20 Years and Still No Answers. Her dad’s lonely vigil
By BRIAN GRAY, TORONTO SUN
Sat, July 30, 2005
TWENTY YEARS and not a trace of Nicole Morin.
The little girl with the toothy grin went off to swim with a friend on July 30, 1985, and was never seen again.
Not a clue, not a shred of evidence, not an answer for Art Morin on what happened to his 8-year-old daughter.
“She vaporized,” said Art, now 66, from his Etobicoke apartment. It’s as good an explanation as anybody can provide him.
“It’s been a long time,” he said yesterday, dredging up memories of his little girl, accompanied by a few tears. “When she disappeared I really thought we would have an answer by now but there really are no surefire answers.”
At 11 a.m. that morning Nicole said goodbye to her mom, Jeanette, in their penthouse apartment on The West Mall and told her she was going to meet a friend for a swim at the apartment complex’s pool.
She got on the elevator and vanished.
A police search team went door to door. Hundreds of volunteers scoured the neighbourhood and nearby fields.
They all turned up nothing.
“It has to have been someone in her building,” Toronto Police Supt. Tony Warr said this week. “The chances of a stranger being on that elevator are very slim.”
When Nicole disappeared Warr was a sergeant with five years under his belt in the homicide squad.
“I can remember talking to her distraught mother in Nicole’s bedroom,” he said. “I can still remember there was a poster on the wall.”
Warr and his partner, then-Staff Sgt. Jim Jones, spent weeks on the case working out of the basement of 22 Division looking for something to illuminate Nicole’s whereabouts.
Nicole’s vanishing was one of a series of mysterious disappearances of girls.
Christine Jessop, 9, went missing from her Queensville home the October before Nicole vanished. Sharin’ Morningstar Keenan, also 9, was snatched away in January 1983 and Alison Parrot disappeared July 1986. All turned up dead, their bodies found. All except Nicole.
The police and the Morins went through every scenario they could think “until we were blue in the face,” said Art, who has been divorced from Jeanette since 1989.
‘SHE WASN’T FORGOTTEN’
“I don’t want to be dwelling on these things,” he said. “I find bringing all these memories back doesn’t do much good.”
But he still keeps a box of what he calls “the most personal things,” full of notes and schoolwork and Father’s Day cards.
“Hey, what if she walks in the door?” he asked, his mood becoming more upbeat. “What if someone has taken her and she decides she wants to return? If Nicole should ever return I want to be able to show her she wasn’t forgotten.”
Not knowing what happened to a missing child makes it almost impossible to ever heal the gaping hole in parents’ hearts, said Jan Barr, a case manager with Child Find Ontario.
“Without resolution it remains as raw as the day it happened,” Barr said.
Nicole isn’t the oldest case in Child Find’s files but it’s one of the most baffling. Her picture still runs regularly along with an age-enhanced photo done in 2000 to indicate what Nicole might look like at age 24.
“Typically there’s more evidence when a child goes missing,” Barr said. “That’s what makes this one so unusual; there was nothing.”
Art said he knows there’s at least one person out there who knows what happened to his little girl.
And he’s certain that person has told others.
What he can’t understand — and what still angers him — is why no one ever said anything to the police or the family.
It’s a problem of the spirit, Art said, and it’s a problem that is getting worse with every passing year.
He watched as other children have gone missing — Kayla Klaudusz, Andrea Atkinson and more recently Holly Jones and Cecilia Zhang — and he feels despair with every single one.
“We’ve learned that diligence is required on the part of all parents,” Art said.
“There are people out there who don’t give a hoot for your child’s life because they have no moral scruples.”
The police learned greatly from Nicole’s disappearance and in child abduction cases since, Warr said, such as the importance of staying focused on the crime area and being on top of things instantly. (Warr and the homicide squad were not called until a week after Nicole vanished.)
“These things (abductions) only take seconds,” Warr said.
In 1987, Nicole’s father theorized that someone from his church took her and she knew about it and even cooperated. Two months before she vanished, she wrote a note in school saying she was going “to disappear”. A slender blond woman holding a notebook was seen at the end of the hall 40 minutes before the disappearance. Nicole did get on the elevator and was seen in the lobby and outside the building, but she took so long, her friend didn’t wait for her. Did she really have other plans? One Toronto Star archived article I read on-line said she WAVED goodbye to her mother when she left to go to the pool behind the building….
I’m trying to find out which church Art Morin went to back in the 80s. Reporter Cal Millar only described it as “fundamentalist”. Perhaps someone decided to place Nicole in another environment because of her parents’ court battles over money….They were separated and Art said he was paying for everything and had nothing left to live on….(ref. Toronto Star, Cal MIllar, July 30, 1987, A21)

Bucke Bleichert, can we speak about Nicole Morin. Thank you.
Nicole Wright, Society of Professional Journalists
The picture of a child on a pedophile ring CD Rom identified in 2005 as Nicole is available at
http://www.droitfondamental.eu/12-identification.htm (ref. unsolvedcanada.com, “Solvy”)
The picture is fuzzy and a profile but I can’t rule her out and I’m practiced in drawing faces. In fact, it’s a very good match and it should be investigated.
Maybe the Morin’s can find a profile shot for comparison or a new artist’s sketch could be made by someone who hasn’t seen the image from Europe.
Bucke, thanks for the update. This is a truly heartbreaking story and I have also had an interesting private email about it.
It is our team that has made the identification of Nicole on the Zandvoort CD. No one seemed interested. Our sites have been destroyed by hacking 12 times in three years and it makes it difficult to put back everything on line, but your interest in Nicole made me want to put back her identification as soon as possible. We would be very grateful if any of you can forward us article on the case. email@example.com
Jacqueline, can we speak about Nicole Morin. I emailed postmaster and it was returned. I was adopted into an LDS family in 1985. I know things about this case that I should not. My gene tests show different heritage than my family, and I remember Totem Poles, Blue Jays (baseball), Desailand.
I also know about other abductions; the missing children related to David Elliot Penton. At least six of them, were adopted by LDS members, who I know.
I do some journalism and crime reporting, and this has led me to Nicole.
Nicole Wright, Society of Professional Journalists
Ms. de Croy has sent me this link with a picture of the Zandvoort CD “Nicole” from the front. She doesn’t have the same gaps in the teeth but the age-enhanced picture of Nicole suggests her teeth in the missing person’s picture were baby teeth.
A source close to Nicole has given me the following information:
The church in question that Art Morin was attending in 1985 was the World Wide Church of God. He doesn’t believe it had any involvement.
The blond woman seen by a female witness can be identified as a member of the press if the witness was off by one day on her statement.
Buck, Thanks for the update, this is such a baffling case.
Why did her mom leave Amherst NS so quickly?
No ide why
since Art’s neice has joined the case with her Facebook group, I’ll defer to her and I hope she’ll answer these questions. So far I see she’s been getting her info from our unsolvedcanada.ca site. Friends of Nicole on Facebook are forthcoming.
I noticed the group reported that Jeanette had friends who moved to a horsefarm in Brampton. A private property like that should have been thoroughly searched and not just the public parks and then later the ravine on airport property. But, if the kids in her daycare weren’t all babies, I’d say she has a strong alibi anyway.
If you knew them, do you remember if Nicole looked more like her mother or her father?
Kristin Morin’s Facebook group has a picture of Art and Jeanette from the newspaper and information on the murder of Art’s sister Gertrude by her husband in 1961 in Iroquois Falls. Art is originally from North Bay.
An update on the Zanvoort pictures was posted at Unsolvedcanada.ca and it seems most of those pictures came from the orphanage on the Isle of Jersey.
I spent two hours looking at old papers at the library and found no extra useful information except that they gave Art a lie detector test.
Max Haines in his account in a Canadian crime an anthology says Nicole talked to her friend on the phone, not on the intercom and promised to meet her in the lobby, giving her time to miss her friend in the lobby by accident or on purpose.
Atreyu, thanks for checking out my facebook group.
I’ve had some termendous responses and help from various forensic artists, folks completing projects, and those who are just as baffled my the mystery as I am.
I’ve been flooded with emails with tips and information that unfortunately, had been ignored or dismissed by police and investigaters, it angers me.
It was wonderful to run into this blog. Thank again.
Are you related to Art Morin?
Can we speak about Nicole Morin?
I am an accountant, and I do some journalism, since 2010, and some crime reporting, since 1998. I made a report about a little boy who went missing in Maine, October 2021, and unlike other cases, I cannot get this child out of my head. As a result, I have been looking through missing child posters, in my free time, for over a year.
Last month, I ran into data re: David Elliot Penton. Approximately six of the missing kids related to him, were adopted by LDS members in Silicon Valley, and I knew them, 1985 to 1998.
Through Penton, I found an investigation into James Britt Monroe, who I met in 1985, through “my aunt”.
I kept trying to chain and sequence the events, and I found Nicole Morin.
She looks EXACTLY like my school photo, from 1985-1986.
I was adopted into an LDS family in 1985.
My family, was unable to furnish a birth certificate or social security card for me, until 1998, when it became court ordered, that they do so. When I went to school to be registered in 1985, there were no immunization records, and it was difficult for “my mom” to have them accept the enrollment. They refused, and she had to have one of her powerful friends, call them to make an exception.
My family, has refused to answer all questions that I ask, about anything prior to 1985.
And, they knew nothing about my medical history. In 2017-2018, I went through gene testing, and my genes fail to match theirs. My genetic markers are:
Gap in front teeth
Hypodontia of left upper quadrant #11
Cafe au lait spot on forehead
Cafe au lait spot on right shin
STK11: NM_000455.4(STK11):c.631C>T(R211W) heterozygote, is autosomal dominant
NM_000018.3 (ACADVL):c.865G>A(G289R) heterozygote, is X linked autosomal recessive
some other rare genes I’ve tested
STK11 or ACADVL is seen in France & Finland (maybe Sweden). I have to check. The family that raised me, is German.
Growing up, I could not pronounce American “r’s”, and had speech therapy. The way I spoke, seems to be indicative of British English.
I used to ask when my dad, Art, was going to pick me up.
I used to ask for “Betty”, which I saw painted on the wall of a Carnival game in Toronto in the 80’s.
I remember baseball games with my dad, and the Blue Jays.
For some reason I thought a relative or possibly a close friend, was on the team. I used to collect baseball cards, looking for his face. I never found it, as they were American cards.
I used to play with ducks, at Dasailand. Not sure if that is childhood, or the people that abducted me. I found an owl symbol related to one man whose father built Dasailand. This symbol, is a mark of a criminal group that I turned into the Texas Attorney General, where they approved my filing, on 03/11/21. My ID with that office, is #VA210032.
I thought Art bought peanuts and fed squirrels.
Someone used to say to me, “A penny for your thoughts”.
I am obsessed with lavender. I believe this is related to Jeanette, although I don’t remember her, from my current memories.
(Some of my memories, are stored away, in different places, and require different techniques, to bring them forward. I studied this, in a Master’s program in therapy. I had accurate memories until 1992, and the family that raised me, kept getting upset by them, so I stored them away. I worked with MD’s later on, to see what was safe to explore.)
In that graduate program, Dr. Marlene Mulder, reminded me that I was born from a different family (which I knew from social workers growing up, but my mom kept getting upset by it, and wanted to pretend that none of her kids were adopted).
MD Mulder, wanted me to go back to the family that I came from.
In hypnosis, I went through a “purple tunnel” or “sphere”. I think the symbolism is Antoine de Saint-Exupery’s, The Little Prince. That is how I felt, growing up with the family that raised me. That they were all like the characters, on the different planets that The Little Prince, explored.
After the purple, there was green grass, and a rabbit. I was looking for the rabbit, since 2010. I went travelling, many times, and never saw it. This past week, I saw a Canadian Coin, which had the rabbit, and all of the references, from the 2010 hypnosis. I have never seen what was inside my mind, externally before, until I saw the Canadian coin.
I also collected Totem Poles and masks, which I have never seen in the USA, but they have the ones I like, in Toronto and BC.
I remember Gumbi, Canadian Child Safety Commercials, with Smokey The Bear. There was no TV in the house that I was raised, and no cable, so how do I know those references?
I remember being scared of being kidnapped, and the little girl from Toronto, who is in white, in front of the train.
When I went to the grocery store, people would constantly say, every single outing, they knew me from somewhere. This always made my mom, very angry. She was hiding something. She then wanted to make sure that I stayed home, and didn’t interact with anyone outside our immediate circle.
As an adult, random people would come up to me, saying they knew me. This always felt violating to me. I did work with prominent people and companies in Silicon Valley, and I did make an investment in 2010, that earned me over 170 press releases, but I should have only been locally “famous”, in the city where we were marketing. I should NOT have been recognized, in 45 states and several countries. Only in San Francisco Bay Area (location of company) & Tokyo Japan (an article that we ran).
I contacted Caryn Lieberman, and the Toronto PD. They said they would do a DNA test one week ago, and I have not heard back (yet).
I have an identity, and a career, and this case, is huge.
It makes me feel a lot of different things. I am concerned, about the career I built, and possibly losing it; but I think truth is more important. Even if I did lose it, the truth is always going to win, always, no matter what. (I’m writing this, because of the nature of comparison and what I’m saying – it feels risky and scary to say anything at all, before the results of a DNA test. AND, also, I feel concerned about how everyone feels. I’m really worried about that. I would never want to upset anyone. I’m just trying to get to the bottom of this. AND, there have been so many layers to the crime reporting that I’ve been involved in. Some cases move forward, some are buried. I would hate for this case, to be buried, before a DNA test. I read in the comments on this threat, that the police, did not report some relevant details, to the family. Why didn’t they? Isn’t it your right to know?)
Back to, I am VERY CONCERNED, about all the people involved, and their feelings about it. I have no idea specifically, chunking down, the effects that this has had, on every person involved, or touched by it. How they think, and what they feel. Everyone is unique. I can try to guess, but I think that’s unfair. I think each person, is entitled to what they think and feel, and I want to be considerate and sensitive to everyone. (I just don’t know a million variables….)
I am trying to get to the truth about my DNA, the family that had me. I KNOW that I was wanted, and deeply loved, and that my family 0-8, are good people. For some reason I thought they were artists. I thought there were some politicians too. I thought we were raised to be noble, charitable, and do the right thing.
There is also the gift of intuition. I can’t remember if it’s Art or Jeanette. And does it skip a generation? The writing, “I’m going to disappear”, that was a message to the family – an intuitive lead. I saw that in an article, and I stopped. It made me stop. Dr. Mulder, Dr. Kril, and Dr. Brooks, told me that I am a gifted individual, with uncanny foresight. I really have no framework for that gift, with the family that raised me. Sometimes when I travel though, I “know” things that I should not, and this “gift”, has saved me, many times. I did use this gift, when I was getting my master’s diploma in therapy, and had to log clinical hours with “patients’. But I just did that year program, for personal reasons, not for a career. I’ve worked in business finance, for my career, with some press articles, and some crime reports to government.
I am actually, very extremely curious, about the Morin’s. But, without a DNA test, I think it’s highly inappropriate. I think this based on therapy ethics.
I think I’m worked up enough about this case, and afraid enough, knowing what I know about law enforcement, where some jurisdictions help, and some jurisdictions, ignore evidence, that this is the reason, why I am writing, prior to a DNA result. Does that make sense. Is that okay?
Besides knowing the truth about my DNA, I also really want to help the victims families, related to the girls that were abducted, through Penton, and the Fundamentalists. (Is it the RLDS, Community of Christ, 7th Day Adventists, or another branch?)
I have been saving the missing girls photos that I recognize, and looking through my archives, of the adopted kids from my community. I believe, that Art is right, about the Fundamentalists. The families, need to know, about the black market adoptions.
IN CLOSING (also sorry if I’ve been repetitive about anything; it’s been so much data and research, about my 03/11/21 case. I had no idea, that I’d see the case about Nicole Morin, which was about two weeks ago; the end of November.)
I was trained, to never put anything in writing, and to never make a statement, unless it is beyond reproach, and the evidence backs it up. This case, is me looking like Nicole, and having memories of Toronto. The genetic markers I have listed above, might (a) prove it, (b) be indicative or probable match, or (c) deny it. Same concept with DNA sample too.
I think truth is the most important thing. I believe in family, and community, and doing what is right, because it is right. I believe, that no matter what we face, that the truth always comes out in the end, and that good people, always prevail, in the end, even if it doesn’t seem like it along the way. I know that might be a bit idealistic. It’s just something I hold onto. Is that from the Morin’s or Houle’s?
The blonde woman in the articles, related to the abduction, I know her name. I immediately knew her name, and named her. I have her contact info. Then, I went through all my archives for Caryn Lieberman, and I found two other blonde woman, who also look very similar. One of them, is Karla Homolka. There is a photograph of Homolka, in Santa Cruz California, at dinner with a social worker, Howell, who placed kids with adoptive families.
It is black market illegal adoptions, laundered through an agency. The families, are told, that the children are abused, and unwanted. (I had regular visits with social workers, and I always told them there was never any abuse, and that my family, loved me.) The parents are told that it’s a closed adoption, and that the mother’s want no contact with their children, ever.
The families that adopt, while they pay a fee to the agency, they are also instructed on various tax credits, so the families end up earning income, through adoption credits and dependent credits. It’s a crime that is financially motivated.
There were articles about pedophilia – some of the adopted girls I know, were abused. I spent a little time in 1998, 2012, and 2017, studied and researching, because I didn’t know what they meant. I figured it out, in 2021-2022, what that business racket, is all about. It IS related to NXIVM, Keith Raniere, Clare Bronfman, and servers in Europe. It took me so long to figure out, that I feel like now, I have a pretty good grasp, on that aspect of the crime. The families who adopted, were adopting for different reasons.
There is one last piece. A man who works for The Foundation, he came up to me while I was traveling, in 2014. I also met up with him in 2017. He told me, that I had to go to Canada, and he wanted me to obtain work there. I asked him why he thought that. He said, that what I wanted, was out of alignment with Silicon Valley, and that when I was in Toronto, that I would be recognized, and everything would sort itself out. I had no idea what he was talking about. I got the “light bulb” feeling, when I saw my 1985-1986 photo, and the name said Nicole Morin. I am either a doppleganger, or her.
But why then, do I remember the childhood things, that I do?
Thank you for you time, and compassion. I am truly so very sorry, for all the pain and strife and suffering, that everyone affected, has gone through. This entire thing, feels like the nature of evil. It is so horrible.

Kristin, good look with your continued search. I too would be angry if any information I passed to police was ignored.
I had an experience with a ouija board about this case and it was weird. On or about Tuesday, March 21,2006, I sent an email to the person who owns this site explaining it and she sent a copy of it off to some authorities but no one ever got in touch with me. I still don’t know if I believe in this stuff but a few years ago I did have a couple of strange experiences.
I sent her this;
After becoming bored with my friends questions about her estranged husband I suggested we ask our usual spirit AD about a missing little girl in our city. This must have been somewhere in the early to mid eighties.
Q. AD, can we ask you some questions about something else entirely different, about a little girl who went missing in the elevator of her apartment building.
Q. Is she still alive?
A. Yes (had stayed on yes from last question, then spelled ‘ missing but she is dead’.
Q. Can you tell us where her body is ?
A. Danforth Main.
Q. Do you mean at the Danforth-Main intersection ?
Q. Is that where her body is going to be, at Danforth and Main ?
Q. Who killed her ?
Q. One of a twin killed her ? Can you give us a name ?
Q. Is she in a building somewhere ?
A. Rich men
Q. What about rich men ?
Q. What about rich men ?
Q. Were they using that little girl for pornography or something ?
Q. Why did they kill her ?
A. Hear that he buy the baby
Q. Did she overhear something someone else was doing wrong ?
Q. Was it somebody in her family ?
Q. Somebody was buying a baby ?
Q. And she knew too much so they killed her ?
Q. Where is her body now ?
Q. Is her body in the subway station ?
Q. At Main and Danforth ?
Q. Where ? Is she in a room somewhere ?
A. Station, Station, Sta
Q. Can you tell us where exactly in the station ?
A. (Stayed on Yes)
Q. Is she by the tracks somewhere?
Q. What’s that mean ? Spell it again.
A. Bid ( Interrupted by Son saying goodnight )
Q. Can you tell us any more about that little girl as to how they can find her: so her parents will know?
A. ( staying on yes )
Q. You say she is dead, can we speak to her ?
A. No. You dont talk.
After a while it went back to talking about the situation of my friend’s estranged husband.
The most interesting thing about this story is that over a period of time my friend and I had often wondered if we were actually reading these things properly or were we reading or putting in after thoughts on our own. To get some proof that we were actually ending up with what was spelled out we had set up my video camera and taped the entire thing.
The next night we were both very anxious to get going at this again and quickly set up the camera , zooming in on the board. Our only interest now was about the little girl who’s name we now remembered. It was Nicole Morrin and we were very excited in getting more information as to her whereabouts. Much to our dismay though, not a thing would happen. As opposed to all other times when we would only be at the board for a few minutes or even moments before the pointer would start to move, it was now absolutely still, with none of the usual vibrations that we often thought may have been in our imaginations anyway. It was different this time though. It seemed absolutely dead.
Wondering what could be wrong, we decided to dismantle the camera and get it put away so we could try again in our same old way.
And that did the trick. We didn’t get our usual spirit AD back but another one we used to have, Dan I believe was his name, came on . When we asked him why we had had so much trouble earlier he just spelled out’ you eye us’ and we knew right away he meant the camera.
It was a little crazzy after that. I don’t remember what exactly was said but we both got the impression that AD was certainly being chastised in some way for letting us use the camera. And we were both scared.
I suggested we send the tape to the police but my friend wanted nothing to do with that idea. And later I had second thoughts about it myself . After all I had a husband and two teenage sons and there may have been all sorts of questions being asked as to their whereabouts on the day of the little girl’s disappearance. Would they think I was inventing this story as a cover-up if I knew the person involved? Scarry things would go through my mind and I kept putting it off. I guess I was being paranoid since we lived in a different part of the city but one never knows what kind of a can of worms can be opened up in a situation like that.
So here I am , all those years later, with a tape that I have watched many times to make sure we were reading everything correctly, and I still don’t know why I can’t send it off to the police. I think, when you come right down to it, the reason I haven’t reported this is because I’m really afraid of the spirit and always have been. I think now though I will put my faith in God and ask Him to remove any evil spirits around this issue and one day get the nerve to report it , for what it’s worth.
Dear F Ross, Thank you for sharing all this. I believe in the paranormal. There are too many inexplicable spiritual events that cannot be explained. I know of a wonderful retired detective in America and have forwarded the link to him. This is a dreadfully sad story.
the police should check personel working in the building at that time problably a part time doing persone has a electrician ,cable,painting,
someone that have acces to the stairs cases and
exit door with a vehicle …and most important someone that had lisent to the conversation between the to girls,
a garbage removal,a religious promoter(in this case could be someone that have no kids becouse they go on pair ,a steril family for intance and from oveseas)someone that should not be listed that they and was doing a part time.
someone that gives rides etc
Allison Parrott was found just below the Old Mill Station and THAT’S on the Bloor-Danforth line.
That might be what your Danforth-Main reading came from.
The MIT biometrics computer program, perhaps not administered properly, didn’t work because Nicole, it seems, wasn’t a Zanvoort victim after all.
Maybe supernatural help might be in order. Ellee, it always nice to see someone from Britain who believes.
The father originally implicated his church, the World Wide Church of God. The logo of the church is a VESICA PISCES.
(I was a believer but never attended congregation.)
The signature at the bottom of the Lindbergh Kidnapping ransom notes was a VESICA PISCES. Two of the main suspects in this case attended a theosophical church called Temple of Divine Power.
“I hear Robert Hoshowsky is interested in writing [a book] about about Nicole and Sharin Morningstar. Maybe he can get some information out of the police.”
“Art Morin is only talking to police about the case now…” Tekmat, unsolvedcanada.ca
“Art’s great neice, Kristin Morin believes his church theory holds the key to the crime. You can read her comments on her facebook group.”
This story on Scribd is about a child that goes missing and the mother’s name is Jeanette like Nicole’s mother. http://www.scribd.com/doc/17234331/The-Pooh-Code
If Nicole was abducted from inside the building, then that means it either had to be by someone who lived in the building, or was visiting in the building. If her friend was waiting for her in the lobby, and 15 minutes had past, she would have seen her if she had reached ground level. Having said that, Nicole also may have dilly-dallied those 15 minutes away, and then reached ground level after her friend had left…so many scenarios. But – it seems more reasonable that Nicole never got out of the building. Someone would have seen her. I’m wondering WHO knew the girls were going to go swimming. If this was just a random person wanting to abduct a child, why didn’t they take Jennifer, instead of Nicole??…seems reasonable to conclude that is because Nicole was in the hallway, that the person that took her was also in that area. If the abductor was outside or on the main level, they probably would have focused on Jennifer. I just have a feeling someone that was known to Nicole took her.
Here is the list of the residents of 627 The West Mall from the 1885-86 Toronto Directory, some with apartment numbers.
Nick Mazepa is listed in Apartment 701 which puts the lie to the “official” story that Jennifer Mazepa, Nicole’s friend, came from another building and had to get buzzed in by Nicole.

How did you get this list?
[…] would be 33 today. A Facebook vigil titled â€œFind Nicole Morinâ€ still continues, with some of Nicoleâ€™s childhood friends, family […]
The police have a new video re-enactment of the events and the story is very different. Now there’s no friend buzzing in and waiting for her in the lobby.
No explanation is given but Websleuths had already discovered that her friend actually lived in the building and would not have had to buzz in.
The possibility now is that she made it to the lobby (as witness said) and that she left to meet someone.
I lived there and there are two buildings in one. If someone lived in 625, like Jennifer did, then they can either go through a long hallway that connects the two buildings or go the lobby of 627 from the outside. The hallway was always a little scary especially for a young child so thatâ€™s most likely why Jennifer went from the front.

I know this is a long shot but I really love to get my hands on the police files but to do so would cost a lot of money. I was hoping that anyone can help me with information regarding this case. I’m not trying to solve it but I need to know some information. I lived near her. Any help would be great.
I need to prove to the police that Nicole and Jeanette lived in Amherst Nova Scotia the year of Nicole going missing ! I’ve always wondered why her best friend that was in Portugal said that she used to walk to school with Nicole blah blah blah she may have. But if she did it would only have been a few months that little girl and her mother lived in Amherst Nova Scotia when I was in grade 3 and Nicole was in grade one ! And until I have proof the cops will not even look into it even though I have about 10 names that remember Nicole from Amherst.
