(THUNDER BAY, ON) – Thunder Bay Police Service are still on scene of a North Vickers Street incident that occurred earlier this week. There are at least 3 police vehicles present, with one being the forensics unit.
We reported earlier this week that a source had told us that a basement unit in the home has the door left wide open. A male was located in the unit unconscious laying face down in a pool of blood.
Police have held the home in the 300 block of North Vickers as a crime scene since, and had the unit taped off with police tape. Officers have been working diligently to find out what happened.
Based on the informaiton at hand and the forensics unit now on scene, it is possible the man has passed away from the injuries sustained during the altercation. The forensics unit is usually only deployed when a death has occurred.
Police have been tight lipped about what their investigation has revealed, but we are hopeful a media release will be issued soon. A recommendation was made yesterday during the OIPRD’s press conference that stated the Thunder Bay Police Service would have some external oversight in all sudden death investigations.
This is the same residence where a double stabbing occurred last year, which sent one person to hospital. Although reported crime has dropped in Thunder Bay, it appears the severity of crime remains the same or higher.
Anyone with informaiton regarding this incident is asked to inform city police of what they know by calling 807-684-1200.
