Toronto, Ontario, Canada - They found Victoria "Tori" Marsbergen's body in a dusty cemetery near the airport in the lawless Mexican city of Ciudad Juarez.
It was reportedly her first visit to the tough border town across the Rio Grande.
Overwhelmed local cops claimed she was battered to death with a rock and died from head trauma.
The 21-year-old Canadian woman, who is believed to be from the Toronto area had been living in El Paso, Texas, when she disappeared, El Diario De Juarez reported. Tori was last seen in this car bearing New Mexico plates. Tori Marsbergen had not been heard from since April 29, 2019 and her mom, Tammy Daniels, took to social media looking for help. She also filed a missing person report with the El Paso Police.
Daniels wrote on Facebook: "Her phone is off. Her phone is her life and she will never let it just die or turn it off, especially this long. Tori as everyone knows her, has not shown up for work either."
Victoria had the word "Kylie" tattooed on her chest, "Aaron Mathew" inked on her right clavicle area and a heart stating "Aaron" inked on the middle finger of her left hand.
Mexican authorities have not officially disclosed a reason why Marsbergen may have been in Juarez.
Mexican media reported that it was Tori's first time in Juarez, a city so dangerous that Canadian travellers are strongly cautioned against going there.
"Her presence here in Juarez was unusual, she had no roots here in the state, nor in the city, so we are investigating what was the reason for her presence because... we do not know who she was going to visit", said Cesar Augusto Peniche, state attorney general.
One Mexican report said Tori had recently received threats although who was doing the threatening is unclear.
This case remains unsolved.

Susan Tice had recently made the move from Calgary to Toronto, Ontario before she went missing. When her brother hadn't heard from her after reaching the city, he ended up flying to Toronto to check up on her.

Erin Gilmour was the next victim four months later after being discovered in her home in Yorkville a short walk away from Susan Tice's home. She suffered the exact same trauma and injuries that Susan Tice had endured and after the police conducted a DNA test in 2002, they discovered the same person had killed both women. Read full story »

December 2, 2020 - Donna Oglive, a resident of British Columbia, was in Toronto for five weeks before she was killed, police said. She was four months pregnant with a baby boy.
The body of 24-year-old Donna Oglive was found after 7 a.m. on March 8, 1998, in the corner of a parking lot at 130 Carlton St. on the east side of Jarvis St. She had been strangled, police said in a news release.
Just year, Toronto police appealed to the public for information leading to the killer of 21-year-old Lisa Lynn. She was found after 9 a.m. on May 12, 1997, face down in a laneway south of Front St. E. and west of Cherry St. She was also strangled.
Oglive had been working as a sex trade worker in the Gerrard Street East and Church Street area at the time of her death.
Lynn worked in the sex trade industry in the area of Wellesley Street East and Bleecker Street before she was killed.
Homicide cold case Det.-Sgt. Stacy Gallant told the Star that the DNA profile of the killer from both cases do not match, and that the cases are not considered linked.
But there are similarities in that the two victims were sex trade workers of about the same age and were both killed in similar circumstances in the downtown core.
I want people to know these are not forgotten cases," said Gallant, who was on his last day at work before retiring after 31 years with the Toronto Police Service.
The DNA profiles of the killers weren't on the national database, Gallant said.
Donna Oglive was known to travel between British Columbia and Toronto regularly. She was of Filipino descent, with dark skin, about 5'5", and approximately 160 pounds. She had black shoulder-length hair and was wearing a long white high heel boots, a mini skirt and fur jacket.
Anyone with information on the two deaths in Toronto is asked to contact police at 416-808-7400, Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416-222-TIPS (8477), online at www.222tips.com, or text TOR and your message to CRIMES (274637).
