(THUNDER BAY, ON) – A recent gruesome discovery in the city’s northside downtown area has caused concern.
A woman’s dead body was discovered in a multi-unit apartment building near the casino.
Concerned citizens in the area say that they saw numerous police vehicles around the building on Cumberland near Park Avenue.
Later on in the day, a funeral home vehicle alone with the forensics unit was seen on location.
The death is surrounded in suspicious circumstances due to the home the woman was discovered in having ties to drug trafficking of “down” (fentanyl) and southern Ontario gang members. It is not certain at this point but the information we have is pointing to either violence, overdose or both as a cause of death. Lately, gangsters and their associates have been overdosing people as a means of killing them. Death investigations, at least locally, don’t seem to dig deeper when an overdose is evident.
Multiple police cruisers were seen holding the scene after the body was removed and forensics cleared the scene.
