SIU Identifies Man Who Died in London

Case Number: 05-PCD-096

TORONTO (28 June, 2005) --- The Special Investigations Unit (SIU) is continuing to investigate the circumstances surrounding the death of a man in London. The deceased man has been identified as Franciszek "Frank" Greda, 40 years of age.

On June 27, 2005, London Police Service (LPS) officers were called to a home on Princess Avenue. When the police arrived, one officer was involved in an exchange of gunfire with someone inside the house. When officers entered the home, they found Mr. Greda suffering from a gunshot wound. Three other people suffering from fatal injuries were also discovered. The LPS is conducting an investigation into the deaths of these deceased persons. Mr. Greda was known to the family of the deceased persons.

As part of the probe, the SIU has designated one subject officer and is investigating the officer's role in the death of Mr. Greda. Thirteen witness officers from the LPS have also been designated and police interviews will begin today.

The SIU continues to appeal for anyone who has any information about this incident to contact the Unit at 416-641-1879 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.
