A police probe into a “suspicious” death in north Etobicoke earlier this week has turned into a full-fledged homicide investigation.
Officers from 23 Division were called to an apartment building on Kendleton Drive (near Kipling Avenue and John Garland Boulevard) shortly before midnight Monday, Nov. 12 night on an “unknown trouble” call.
Once on scene, police located 59-year-old Leah Edwards with “obvious signs of trauma” in one of the apartments. She was pronounced dead on the scene.
While Toronto police’s Homicide Squad was initially called in to help 23 Division officers investigate the “suspicious” death of Edwards, a post-mortem examination has since concluded that her death was the result of “blunt-impact chest trauma,” according to police.
A man at the scene was taken into custody Monday night.
Ian Gray, 50, of Toronto, is charged with second-degree murder in Edwards’ death.
He is scheduled to appear in court on Friday, Nov. 16.
