Police to offer 'evidence' in bid to solve Ardeth Wood killing fliiltDGDim: $50,000 reward turned trickle of information into new flow, detective says mm OTTAWA Police probe sex assault at Walkley Road station Police are investigating a sexual assault against a woman who had just stepped off an OC Transpo bus at the Walkley Road Transit Station. A woman told police that a man grabbed her from behind, threw her to the ground, sexually touched her, and then fled on foot with her purse. The assault occurred at 12:35 ajn yesterday.

He was wearing dark jeans, a dark shirt with red and white lettering, running shoes and a dark baseball cap.

725-3414 Toll-free 1-800-265-8244 The Ottawa police major crime unit is hoping a fresh detail to be released in a press conference today will trigger someone's memory and help detectives zero in on Ardeth Wood's killer. The $50,000 reward offered last week for the arrest and conviction of Ms. Wood's killer has sparked a renewed flow of information, which had waned in the past six months. "It was down to a small trickle of calls that came in, and when the reward was announced, it picked up to about five or six a day where we would only get one or two a day," said Det. Gerald Kinnear.

"We are hoping it will trigger someone's memory and say yeah, that helps me remember Asked if the composite sketch of a muscular, tanned man, with a tattoo of a bird on his upper left arm originally released by the Ottawa police is still considered crucial in the investigation, Det. Kinnear said "yes." "It's all part of the media package," he said. "We still like it (the sketch), and we are sticking with that along with the tattoo." Det. Kinnear said "we are going to introduce evidence that will help identify the guy responsible." He said the evidence is not another sketch and is "not related" to the current sketch. He would not elaborate before the conference today.

The composite drawings of the suspect and the tattoo have generated near the mouth of the Ottawa River. On Aug. 10, Ms. Wood's bike was found in the creek and the following day her body was discovered near the shoreline. An autopsy showed she drowned.

The same week, several other women reported being approached by a man on a bicycle who fit the description of the person in the composite. Now nearing the anniversary of his sister's death, Ms. Wood's brother Colum said the case could come down to a person's conscience. "Police just want to appeal to the person or relative of person," he said, adding his parents will be attending the briefing today. "Nobody lives on an island.

Somebody's got to know that their friend, son, or brother was not around that day at that time and was doing something strange." Det Kinnear said he wished he could say the major crime team is close to wrapping up the investigation, but that's not the case. He is confident in saying the suspect is "white, male, and lives in Canada maybe." He says the extra clue is just another piece of the unfinished puzzle.
