Lisa Leckie

Lisa Leckie

A note written on an impact-type typewriter with a ribbon was left behind by her killer. The note and other evidence strongly indicate this was not a random act and that Lisa was targeted by someone she knew.

London, Ontario - The young mother of two Lisa Leckie, 25, was found dead in her third-floor apartment on 390 Southdale Road by her common-law husband, Derek, who was coming home from work shortly before 7 a.m. on March 24, 2009.

There is little information out there about Derek and Lisa's relationship. Derek did call police after discovering Lisa's body.

While still in high school, Lisa and Phil married. They split up more than a year before Lisa's murder, and the couple had one son together: 8-year-old Sean.

Her eight-month-old son was unharmed and found in his crib.

Over a decade later, investigators still haven't found her killer.

Investigators believe she was killed on the evening of March 23, 2009, or in the early morning hours of March 24, 2009. The autopsy revealed that she died as a result of asphyxiation.

Map of the area where Lisa Leckie was found murdered

Police revealed last year that a note written on a typewriter was left behind by her killer. The contents of the letter will not be released but investigators are hopeful that releasing the fact a typewriter was used will resonate with someone.

Head of the London police major crime section, Det. Sgt. Alex Krygsman, says the note indicates this was not a random act and that Lisa was targeted by someone she knew.

"We firmly believe that someone knows who killed this kind and loving mother, and we are appealing to that person's conscience."

Officers have also released surveillance footage pulled from a camera near Leckie's south London apartment. Police say the footage was recorded the night before Leckie's body was found.

A man described as 5-foot 11-inches and 200 pounds can be seen in the video. Investigators are looking to speak with him in regards to Leckie's murder.

Sean Leckie, who was eight at the time of his mother's murder, is pleading for someone to come forward.

"It affected everyone who had come into contact with her, to know that someone so special to us could be gone in an instant," said Leckie, in a video statement released by police.

Anyone with information can contact investigators with the Major Crime Section at 519-661-5674 or anonymously report to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or online at www.londoncrimestoppers.com.
