The Special Investigations Unit continues to investigate an incident involving the deaths of a one-year-old boy and his 33-year-old father in Kawartha Lakes last November.
Both sustained gunshot wounds on November 26, 2020 in the course of an interaction between the father and Ontario Provincial Police officers. The child was pronounced deceased at the scene, and the father succumbed to his injuries almost one week later.
The investigation is currently in a hold pattern awaiting the results of specialized, out-of-country forensic testing of some of the ballistic evidence by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
The SIU recognizes the high public interest in this tragic case and is moving as quickly as it can to bring the investigation to resolution. We ask for the public’s continued patience as the investigation is conducted.
