SIU Continues Investigation into Incident in Peterborough County



    TORONTO, Dec. 10 /CNW/ - The Special Investigations Unit (SIU) is
continuing its investigation into the circumstances surrounding the death of
two people in Peterborough County. Four investigators, three Forensic
Identification Technicians and an accident re-constructionist have been
assigned to this case.
    On Sunday December 9, 2007, Durham Regional Police Service officers were
following a silver Acura SUV in relation to an attempted homicide that
occurred in London. At 4:45 a.m. Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) officers from
the Peterborough County detachment were called to assist as the SUV traveled
north on Highway No.115 into the OPP's Peterborough County area.
    The SUV went over a police spike belt south of Hwy No.7A and continued
traveling northbound on Hwy No.115. Shortly afterwards, the SUV went into a
ditch. OPP officers approached the car and found a man and woman inside the
car. Both of them appeared to be suffering from gunshot wounds. They were both
pronounced dead at the scene.
    The female has been identified as Angela Sedore, 40-years-old of London,
Ontario. The name of the man will not be released at this time pending
notification of next-of-kin.
    A post-mortem examination was scheduled for both deceased today in
Toronto.
    The SIU is appealing for anyone who witnessed this incident to contact
the Lead Investigator at 416-622-2038 or 1-800-787-8529 extension 2038.

    The SIU is a civilian agency that investigates circumstances involving
