A man and a woman are dead in a mysterious incident that unfolded at a Midtown apartment building Saturday afternoon.
Emergency responders found the couple covered in blood just after 1 p.m.
“Both were discovered with obvious signs of trauma and taken by emergency run to a trauma centre,” Toronto Police Const. Allyson Douglas-Cook said Saturday.
One of the patients at the rental building at 144 Davisville Ave., east of Yonge St., was found with no vital signs and life-saving measures were utilized.
The second person was in critical condition.
At one point during an emergency run to hospital, an ambulance was halted while paramedics retrieved special equipment from a supervisor’s vehicle.
“Police are investigating,” said Douglas-Cook.
Cops were slow to call it a homicide or put any label on it.
Detectives from 53 Division and Homicide investigators were discussing the case Saturday evening and may wait until forensics are completed to make a determination.
They are taking their time partially to ensure the scene inside that apartment was in fact what it appeared to be.
Police have been criticized before for rushing to judgement — specifically on the day almost two years ago when Honey and Barry Sherman were found dead in their North York home.
However, the situation at the Midtown condo is also complicated and police are doing their due diligence to ensure the appropriate team investigates the tragic deaths.
