ONTARIO PROVINCIAL POLICE
SPRINGWATER TOWNSHIP - On Wednesday, Mar. 16, 2016, shortly after 12 p.m., officers from the Huronia West Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) responded to a report of human remains being located in a section of the Simcoe County Forest, east of Gill Road, south of Hillview Crescent, Springwater Township, Ontario.
The human remains were later confirmed as belonging to 30-year-old Jaimee Lee Miller who was reported missing to the Barrie Police Service (BPS) on Nov. 2, 2015 and the post mortem examination positively determined that she was a victim of foul play.
It has been two years since Jaimee Lee Miller was last heard from by her family and as a result, the Simcoe County Case Files initiative is seeking the assistance of the public in helping her family find resolution.
A series of videos will be released commencing today that depict details attributed to this ongoing investigation that will hopefully provide investigators with the information needed to solve this horrific crime.
The joint investigation that is being conducted by detectives from the Ontario Provincial Police and the Barrie Police Service under the direction of Detective Inspector Jim Gorry of the OPP Criminal Investigation Branch (CIB) continues to seek the assistance of the public and this team remains committed in their effort to identify the person or persons responsible for the death of Jaimee Lee Miller.
The dedicated Facebook page will again serve as the launching point of this social media based initiative and the public is encouraged to continue doing their part in spreading the important messages contained in these videos.
A $50,000 reward that was issued by the Government of the Province of Ontario last October remains in place and available should information be received that leads police to the perpetrator(s) of this crime.
