Mary Emma Bisenthal Hammond (Aug 1, 1958 – missing Sept 8, 1983) left for work in the early morning hours of September 8, 1983. She went missing and was never seen again. Her husband was never a suspect.
On June 8, 2022, Brantford police reported that they found DNA on evidence pieces collected at a Memorial Drive residence. This search happened on September 11, 1983. Several items were kept in custody until modern technology could tell us more.
Mitochondrial DNA showed that Stephen Mudko was most likely responsible for Mary’s abduction and murder. Had Mudko been alive today, he would be charged with first degree murder. Mudko, at the time of the crime 36 years old, lived on Memorial Drive in Brantford.
Alas, Mudko passed away on June 23, 2010. He might not be the only one responsible for Mary’s murder so the investigation remains ongoing. As Mary’s remains are still missing, and police need to know if other people were involved, they need your help.
