SIU Terminates Death Investigation Near Kincardine

Numéro du dossier: 18-POD-319

Mississauga, ON (21 novembre 2018) ---
The Director of the Special Investigations Unit, Tony Loparco, has terminated an investigation into the death of a man near Kincardine last month.

In the morning hours of October 31, 2018, Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) officers responded to a residence in the area of Side Road 10 and South Line for a report of a domestic dispute. Based on information received, the officers went to a second residence in the area of Lake Range Drive and Concession Road 10. The officers left after speaking with a 45-year-old man of interest and another individual. Sometime later, the OPP – along with Fire Services and Emergency Medical Services – returned to the residence after getting information that the 45-year-old man had gone vital signs absent. First aid was performed on the man and he was transported to hospital. He was pronounced dead at 9:36 a.m.  

Director Loparco said, “The man’s death was not caused by the police and was of a medical nature. As such, I have terminated the investigation into this incident.”
