SIU Appeals for Witnesses in Death Investigation in Mississauga

Case Number: 08-OCD-125

TORONTO (30 June, 2008) --- The Special Investigations Unit (SIU) is probing the circumstances surrounding the death of a 43-year-old woman yesterday evening after she fell from an apartment in Mississauga.

At approximately 6:25 p.m. on Sunday, June 29, officers from the Peel Regional Police (PRP) responded to a call at an apartment building located at 30 Elm Drive East. Shortly after officers arrived at the apartment, the woman fell to her death from the 9th floor. A post mortem examination is scheduled today.

The SIU has assigned six investigators and two forensic investigators to investigate the circumstances surrounding this woman's death. Investigators are appealing for anyone who witnessed this incident to contact the Unit at 416-622-1965 or 1-800-787-8529 x.1965.

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.
