Suspicious death in Scarborough under investigation

Police are investigating a suspicious death in the Scarborough area.

Officers responded to a call for unknown trouble Wednesday afternoon at a house in the Birchmount Road and St. Clair Avenue West area.

Inside, they found a deceased person alone in the house.

Nearby neighbour Mike Lomagno says an elderly woman lived there alone.

"She's Greek, I think in her mid-80s. Her husband passed away three or four years ago so she's living by herself but she has a daughter and a son."

The homicide unit is investigating.
