The Hamilton Police Service arrested and charged a 47-year-old man from Hamilton in connection with the June 13 death of 59-year-old Patrick Chaddock in the city’s east end.
Colin Marcotte is accused of Second Degree Murder.
Last Sunday at around 6:45 p.m., police responded to reports of an altercation on the second-floor hallway of 737 Barton St. East.
When they arrived, police found Chaddock laying unconscious. Emergency crews say he was suffering from blunt force trauma when Chaddock was transported to hospital before being pronounced dead.
Police say Chaddock was a long-time resident of the building he was found in.
Marcotte is not a resident of the building but was “associated through other tenants,” according to police, who added that the two “did not have any form of relationship to one another.”
Hamilton Police thanked the public for their assistance in relation to the investigation.
Police are referring to the incident as the city’s eighth homicide of 2021.
