Tow truck driver could help with murder investigation: OPP

Kera Freeland, 20, was found dead in a Caledon ditch on March 17, 2011. HANDOUT/OPP

The OPP is looking for a tow truck driver who may be able to shed light on a murder investigation.

Detectives say in January 2011 a man drove into a ditch in Caledon and the driver had to call a tow truck for help. The driver apparently waited for the truck at a nearby home.

Police believe the incident is related to the case of Kera Freeland, 20, an escort who was found dead in a ditch on Caledon’s Heart Lake Road on March 17, 2011. She had been reported missing two months earlier, and officers say she was likely killed then.

Freeland, who was pregnant at the time, was originally from Alberta and moved to Toronto in 2010.

Christopher Andronakos, 35, a former Toronto roommate, was arrested in Calgary in January and charged with second-degree murder.

The cause of death has not been released.

The OPP would like to hear from anyone with information about the tow truck driver or the Caledon resident who helped the man who drove into a ditch. Tipsters can call the OPP at 519-927-3041 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
