Ontario family gets ready to say goodbye to toddler found dead with father

Keira Kagan

The family of a four-year-old girl found dead alongside her father at the bottom of an escarpment west of Toronto says they will get a chance to view her body today.

Philip Viater says he and his wife, Jennifer Kagan, will be going to the coroner's office to say goodbye to four-year-old Keira Kagan, whose body was found Sunday in the Rattlesnake Point Conservation Area in Milton, Ont.

Halton regional police say the deaths are not considered homicides ``at this point,'' but their investigation continues.

Police say the child and her father went missing Sunday afternoon and their bodies were found around 11 p.m. that evening.

The disappearance triggered a massive search and police say the pair's injuries were consistent with a fall.

Viater, who is the girl's stepfather, says he and his wife believe Keira's father, Robin Brown, jumped off the cliff in a murder-suicide.

A GoFundMe has been launched for the family. Click here to see it.
