SIU Continues Investigation into Incident in Peterborough County

Case Number: 07-PCD-246

TORONTO (10 December, 2007) --- The Special Investigations Unit (SIU) is continuing its investigation into the circumstances surrounding the death of two people in Peterborough County. Four investigators, three Forensic Identification Technicians and an accident re-constructionist have been assigned to this case.

On Sunday December 9, 2007, Durham Regional Police Service officers were following a silver Acura SUV in relation to an attempted homicide that occurred in London. At 4:45 a.m. Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) officers from the Peterborough County detachment were called to assist as the SUV traveled north on Highway #115 into the OPP's Peterborough County area.

The SUV went over a police spike belt south of Hwy #7A and continued traveling northbound on Hwy #115. Shortly afterwards, the SUV went into a ditch. OPP officers approached the car and found a man and woman inside the car. Both of them appeared to be suffering from gunshot wounds. They were both pronounced dead at the scene.

The female has been identified as Angela Sedore, 40-years-old of London, Ontario. The name of the man will not be released at this time pending notification of next-of-kin.

A post-mortem examination was scheduled for both deceased today in Toronto.

The SIU is appealing for anyone who witnessed this incident 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.
