Police seek information on vehicle possibly linked to fatal shooting

London police are seeking information about a 2016 black Volkswagen Jetta believed to have been used during the murder of 30-year-old Lynda Cruz Marques.

London police are asking the public for information about a vehicle believed to have been used by those responsible for the shooting death of a woman last week.

According to investigators, at around 7:52 p.m. September 10, three suspects drove to a home at 2229 Wateroak Drive in a 2016 black Volkswagen Jetta. Police say two of the suspects got out of the car and fired shots into another car parked in the driveway.

Officers later identified 30-year-old Lynda Cruz Marques as the victim inside the vehicle. She died after she sustained several gunshot wounds.

On Friday, police released more information, saying a Jetta matching the description of the car used in the shooting was found abandoned near the end of Meadowlilly Road South in London on Wednesday.

“We believe that the car located on Wednesday is the same one used during the commission of this murder,” said Detective Sergeant Sean Travis of the Major Crime Section. “Its discovery provides an opportunity to advance the investigation into this horrific incident and we are appealing for anyone with information to contact us.”

Police are asking anyone with video surveillance to check for footage of the possible suspect vehicle. The black Jetta in question has four-doors and black rims.

Anyone with information or footage of the car, its occupants or other unusual activity in the Wateroak Drive or Meadowlilly Road area on or around last Friday is asked to call police at 519-661-5670 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
