SIU Releases Name of Deceased

Case Number: 11-TCD-268

Mississauga (29 December, 2011) --- Ontario's Special Investigations Unit (SIU) is continuing its investigation into the death of 31-year-old Pardeep Singh Mann, in Scarborough late Wednesday evening.

At this time, the SIU investigation has determined that on December 28, 2011 Toronto Police Service (TPS) officers attended a residence at 60 Town Centre Court at approximately 11:52p.m. in relation to a police matter. Upon arrival officers spoke with the deceased, who was inside an apartment on the 21st floor. A brief time later, a neighbour in the adjacent apartment indicated to officers that a male was attempting to enter their residence via the balcony. The officers then entered the neighbouring apartment; at some point the man fell from the 21st floor balcony to a balcony on the 9th floor.

Mr. Mann was pronounced deceased at the scene. A post mortem was conducted at 9:30 this morning.

The Unit has designated one subject officer and three witness officers in relation to this incident. Anyone who may have witnessed this incident is asked to contact the lead investigator at 416-622-2038 or 1-800-787-8529 extension 2038.

The SIU is an arm’s length agency that investigates reports involving police where there has been death, serious injury or allegations of sexual assault. Under the Police Services Act, the Director of the SIU must

  • consider whether an officer has committed a criminal offence  in connection with the incident under investigation
  • depending on the evidence, lay a criminal charge against the officer if appropriate or close the file without any charges being laid
  • report the results of any investigations to the Attorney General.
