Case Number: 18-POD-319

Mississauga, ON (1 November, 2018) ---
The province’s Special Investigations Unit is investigating the circumstances surrounding the death of a 45-year-old man yesterday in Kincardine.

Preliminary information suggests the following:
  • At approximately 4:30 a.m. on October 31, 2018, Ontario Provincial Police officers responded to a residence in the area of Side Road 10 and South Line for a domestic incident.
  • Based on information received at this residence, officers went to a second residence at Lake Range Drive and Concession Road 10. Officers spoke with a 45-year-old man at the residence and then left.
  • At approximately 8:30 a.m., 911 received a call regarding a man in distress at the second residence, and subsequently dispatched Police, Fire and Emergency Medical Services. An OPP officer administered CPR to the 45-year-old man.
  • The man was transported to hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Four investigators and one forensic investigator have been assigned to this incident. 

The SIU is urging anyone who may have information about this investigation to contact the lead investigator at 1-800-787-8529. The Unit is also urging anyone who may have any video evidence related to this incident to upload that video through the SIU website.

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
