SIU Says It Has Received Forensic Report From The FBI In Relation To Death Of Child And His Father Nearly A year Ago

KAWARTHA LAKES-The Special Investigations Unit (SIU)says it has received testing results from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI)in relation to the incident involving the deaths of an eighteen-month-old boy and his father in Kawartha Lakes nearly one year ago.

“The SIU is reviewing the FBI’s forensic report and continues to actively investigate this tragic case. The SIU understands the public interest in the results; however, as is our process with all ongoing SIU cases, the Unit does not release details that could jeopardize the integrity of the investigation.” said the agency in a statement released today.
On November 26, 2020, the boy and man sustained gunshot wounds in the course of an interaction between the father and Ontario Provincial Police officers on Pigeon lake Road near Lindsay. The child was pronounced deceased at the scene, and the father succumbed to his injuries almost one week later.

Prior to the shooting, the man’s vehicle collided with an OPP cruiser and a civilian vehicle. An OPP officer who was outside of the cruiser – laying down a spike belt – sustained serious injuries as a result of the collision.

The SIU says it recognizes the one-year anniversary of this case is approaching and is moving as quickly as it can to bring the investigation to resolution.
