Officers are investigating a “suspicious death” in the northeast Ontario community of Vaughan that left a 30-year-old woman dead. The Peel Regional Police Service said late Monday that they found the body of the woman in an apartment building, but did not give any details on what they were looking for, including a suspect.
The police were initially called to the apartment at about 11:45 a.m. on Monday, and though they did not have a suspect, they called in the OPP to investigate since the body was discovered in a public building.
Investigators are looking into the possibility that the woman died of natural causes, which is why they waited about two hours to release any information.
Multiple homes were taped off as police processed the scene. One neighbor, Richard Labelle, said that he saw police in the morning. “We didn’t know what it was … until they called the OPP this afternoon,” Labelle said.
Investigators are also looking into how the woman may have gotten into the apartment, since there were no signs of forced entry.
