Police watchdog investigating woman's death


The province's Special Investigations Unit is looking into the death of a 29-year-old woman in the area of High Park Avenue and Bloor.

In a statement, the watchdog says preliminary information suggests officers responded to an apartment building on High Park Avenue for a domestic incident around 5:15 p.m. on Wednesday.

While officers were inside a 24th-floor apartment unit, they saw a woman on the balcony. The SIU says a short time later, the woman fell from the balcony to the ground below, and she was pronounced dead at the scene.

Anyone with information is asked to call the lead investigator at 1 (800) 787-8529.

The SIU investigates any death, serious injury or allegation of sexual assault involving police.
