Shortly before 6 a.m. on Friday, officers were called to the address near Aloma Crescent and Avondale Boulevard, in the vicinity of Bramalea Road and Steeles Avenue.

The initial call was for a disturbance, but once on scene police located an adult woman suffering from obvious signs of trauma. She was pronounced dead on scene.
