Girl, 10, abducted, assaulted and dismembered on walk home from friend's house: Michael Briere, a 35-year-old software developer and described loner, plucked ten-year-old Holly Jones from the sidewalk during her walk home from a friend's house in the early evening hours of May 12. The next morning, after an Amber Alert was issued, her remains washed up in two garbage bags on the shore of Lake Ontario. About a month later, police arrested Briere at his home at 1450 Bloor Street West. He pleaded guilty to Holly's murder, and was automatically sentenced to life in prison.
