  • Details of Disappearance
    Hammond, whose maiden name was Bisenthal, left her townhouse on Elgin Street in Brantford around 3.30 a.m. on Sept. 8, 1983, for her early morning work shift at the former Buns Master Bakery on Morton Avenue, police said. She had declined her husbandís offer to drive her and left the home alone to walk the 1.5 kilometres to work. At about 4 a.m., a co-worker called her husband asking why she wasnít at work yet. Hammondís footprints were traced to a point where she cut across a field and evidence there included some items from her lunch, a cup, dish and half-eaten apple, one of Hammondís white sockettes and a small quantity of blood. Back in 1983 police refused to reveal if the blood was the same type as Hammondís, but a Spectator source indicated it was. Brantford police recently identified new evidence in the case which helped ďstronglyĒ identify people who may have been involved, including a former Brantford resident who is now dead. Police have now searched and gathered evidence at a Market Street home in Brantford and are awaiting forensic results. The current resident is not connected to the investigation.
