Timmins Police are investigating a homicide that happened early Sunday on Mountjoy St., just south of Algonquin Blvd.
Communications coordinator Marc Depatie says not much can be released yet, other than a lone male victim was pronounced dead at TADH.
“We don’t mean to be mischievous with the facts here,” he explains. “We’re trying to be as transparent as possible, but to preserve the integrity of the investigation as it is in its initial phases, we have to be fairly guarded with what information we make public.”
The victim’s name won’t be released until his identity is confirmed and next of kin are notified. Forensic technicians are combing the apartment.
“There will be an increased police presence in this area for the time being,” Depatie adds, “to allow for these investigative tasks to be completed. We’re working in conjunction with the coroner’s office.”
Anyone with information into the incident is asked to contact city police at 705-264-1201 or Cochrane District Crime Stoppers at 800-222-TIPS (8477).
