The Niagara Regional Police are offering a $100,000 reward as they investigate the fatal shootings of Juliana Pannunzio, 20, of Windsor and Christine Crooks, 18, of Toronto. Police say it is believed they were shot on Jan. 19 while attending a birthday party at a short-term rental (Airbnb / VRBO) in Fort Erie. Fort Erie Mayor Wayne Redekop says the short-term rental was flagged to the town for issues back in June 2020. Redekop says 'this house was brought to our attention in June 2020. My understanding was that it was operating without a licence, so it was penalized for that, had to get a licence and there were a couple of other infractions, and that was it."
