The ontario Special Investigations Unit announced Tuesday it has received testing results from the Federal Bureau of Investigation in relation to the incident involving the deaths of a one-year-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,” the Ontario SIU said in a statement.
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.
The child was pronounced deceased at the scene, and the father succumbed to his injuries almost one week later.
The SIU also added 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.
