Case Number: 20-TCD-124

Mississauga, ON (27 May, 2020) ---
The province’s Special Investigations Unit is investigating the circumstances surrounding the death of a 29-year-old woman this evening in Toronto.

Preliminary information suggests the following:
  • At approximately 5:15 p.m. on May 27, 2020, Toronto Police Service officers responded to an apartment building on High Park Avenue, in the area of Glenlake Avenue, for a domestic incident.
  • While officers were inside an apartment unit on the 24th floor, they observed a woman on the balcony.
  • A short time later, the woman fell from the balcony to the ground below.
  • She was pronounced deceased at the scene.

Two investigators and two forensic investigators have been assigned to the case. 

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
  • 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.
