Police said the suspects fled in a black Volkswagen Jetta.

The vehicle was recovered on Meadowlily Road South on Sept. 15, 2021.

At the time, police said officers had reason to believe the “persons involved in the murder of Ms. Marques” travelled to London from the Greater Toronto Area on Sept. 9, and left the city “immediately after her murder” on Sept. 10.
