The province’s Special Investigations Unit (SIU) is investigating the circumstances surrounding the death of a 29-year-old Etobicoke woman in Brampton on April 18, 2020.
On October 14, the SIU was notified by counsel for the family of the woman’s death.
Preliminary information suggests the following.
At approximately 4:40 p.m. on April 18, 2020, a woman contacted 911, expressing concern for her daughter’s well-being, according to the SIU.
- Thunderstorms in the forecast for Brampton
- Is Brampton’s hospital prepared to handle the uptick in COVID-19 cases amid the City’s health care crisis?
- Last chance to check out Brampton’s Farmers’ Market
As a result, Peel Regional Police (PRP) officers and Emergency Medical Services were dispatched to the mother’s Brampton home.
Upon arriving at the home and assessing the situation with the assistance of a crisis worker, SIU says it was decided there were no grounds to detain the woman under the Mental Health Act and the officers left.
Shortly after, the woman left the home and at approximately 7:45 p.m., an individual discovered the woman collapsed on the ground in the area of Royal West Drive and Adamsville Road, according to the SIU.
The SIU says Emergency Medical Services attended but attempts to revive the woman were unsuccessful and she was pronounced deceased at the scene.
A post-mortem was conducted on April 20, 2020.
Three 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’s website.
