Police officers have searched a house in Vaughan, a Toronto suburb, after a woman’s body was found there Saturday morning. The death is being treated as suspicious. Police are currently asking any witnesses or residents in the area to come forward with information to help them piece together what occurred.
This is the second suspicious death found in the region in the past week. On Tuesday, the body of a 52-year-old man was found on the side of a road in Palmerston Road, just northeast of the city. The Toronto Star reported that he “sustained what appeared to be severe head trauma.” The Toronto Police Service has yet to identify any suspects, but both people were pronounced dead at the scene.
The unexpected deaths have caused consternation in the community, especially in light of the murder of 15-year-old Elizabeth Wettlaufer, who killed eight women in the late 2000s, and was recently sentenced to life in prison for the slayings. According to the Star, residents of the town have “become increasingly worried that women are being targeted” and say they’re “vigilante” in their response to the recent deaths.
