SIU Investigates Death in Mono Township

Case Number: 09-OCD-237

Mississauga (12 September, 2009) --- Three investigators and two forensic investigators from the Special Investigations Unit (SIU) are probing the circumstances surrounding the death of a 42-year-old man that occurred in Mono Township on Saturday, September 12.

At 5:50 a.m. this morning, the Orangeville Police Service (OPS) reported to the SIU that on Friday, September 11, just before midnight, officers responded to a reported domestic dispute at a residence in Orangeville. A short time later, police returned to the residence after learning that a 39-year-old female occupant of the home had been shot. The OPS then went to a second residence in the Mono Township, and requested assistance from the Ontario Provincial Police. A deceased male was found in the home.

The female found in the Orangeville home was airlifted to Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre in Toronto. Her injuries proved fatal.

Investigators are appealing for anyone who may have information regarding this incident to contact the Unit at 416-622-0748 or 1-800-787-8529.

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.
