Peel police to offer $100K rewards for info in 2 unsolved murders

Peel police plan to announce two $100,000 rewards for information that could identify or lead to the arrests of suspects in the unsolved murders of two women in Mississauga.

Jackline Gore and Raneilia Richards were fatally shot in separate incidents four years apart, but police say neither woman was the intended target of the shooters. Both were said to be innocent bystanders.

Insp. Todd Custance and Det.-Sgt. Phil King, members of the Peel homicide and missing persons bureau, are expected to announce the rewards on Monday.

On July 8, 2019, Gore, 24, of London, Ont., was fatally shot outside Fume Bar & Lounge on Tobram Road near Derry Road.

Gore was standing in a parking lot with friends at about 2:48 a.m., when a masked man approached a nearby group of men and opened fire. The intended target was among that group, police said after the shooting.

The target fled and the gunman chased him through a park, shooting at him. One of the bullets hit Gore.

According to police, Gore was an accomplished varsity basketball player, who attended York and Western universities before landing a full-time job at a bank. She was out with friends that night and had no association with the man who police believe was the intended target of the shooting.

Peel police say North York woman Raneilia Richards was an innocent bystander who was 'at the wrong place at the wrong time' when she was fatally shot outside of a Mississauga nightclub on Dec. 31.
