A patient at Ontario Shores in Whitby has died after suffering serious injuries in an incident last week.
The DRPS issued an update on the investigation Wednesday (Nov. 14) afternoon, noting that the 37-year-old male victim had succumbed to his injuries in a Toronto hospital.
His name is not being released due to privacy laws.
Police were initially called to the facility last Thursday (Nov. 8) morning after the man was found with serious injuries following an incident the previous night.
“Our investigators believe his injuries were caused after he became engaged in a physical altercation with another patient inside the facility,” reads the media release.
The investigation is continuing and is now being led by the homicide unit. Anyone with new information is asked to contact Det. McDermott (ext. 5880) or Det. Thorne (ext. 5223) at 1-888-579-1520.
