Frame grab from video shows Terri-Lynne McClintic with OPP Det. Sgt Jim Smyth on May 29th, 2009 at Woodstock Police Headquarters.
LONDON, Ont. - The detective who found Tori Stafford's body and secured a murder confession from Terri-Lynne McClintic - who also happens to be the same investigator who pulled a confession from killer/rapist Russell Williams - will take the stand at Michael Rafferty's murder trial Friday.
Rafferty, 31, is accused of abducting, raping and murdering Tori, 8, on April 8, 2009.
McClintic, 21, pleaded guilty in 2010 to first-degree murder in Tori's death and is serving a life sentence.
After months of searching for Tori, Det. Sgt. Jim Smyth of the provincial police force found Tori's body beneath a rock pile off a rural road near Mount Forest, Ont., on July 19, 2009.
The town is located 150 km northwest of Toronto.
Testimony Friday is expected to focus on the scene where Tori's body was found, and where the Crown alleges she was raped and murdered.
McClintic has testified she lured Tori from her school in Woodstock, Ont., and that her and Rafferty drove Tori to the isolated rural area.
McClintic said she got out of the car and later saw Rafferty sexually assaulting Tori in the back seat.
McClintic told the jury she killed Tori with a hammer.
Smyth may be best known as the interrogator who led Russell Williams to confess to the murders of Cpl. Marie-France Comeau, 38, and Jessica Lloyd, 27, and 86 other charges. The confessions came during a 10-hour interview in 2010. The former Canadian Forces colonel is serving two life sentences.
