WN Police responded to a late-night disturbance call and ended up walking into a grisly scene at a downtown Sturgeon Falls apartment Tuesday night.
It was shortly after 11:30 pm Nov. 14 when officers attended 149 William Street, in response to a disturbance complaint. What they found led to the arrest of one man and ultimately the death of a 39-year old woman, which police have labeled as “suspicious.”
WN Police Chief Chuck Seguin issued a news release Nov. 15, but kept details sparse. “Upon gaining entry, they came upon a male in the apartment and an injured woman. She was taken to West Nipissing General Hospital and was pronounced dead. The male was taken into custody immediately,” he wrote. “The scene was then secured and is subject to a forensic examination by the Ontario Provincial Police Forensic Identification Unit who were called in to assist.”
The criminal investigation is ongoing and no further information was provided. Chief Seguin told the Tribune he would answer no questions on Wednesday, but was expecting to release further details in the coming days.
Later Wednesday, a neighbour, saying another tenant made the call to police shared with the Tribune their account of the night’s horrendous events.
