Toronto police provide update on human remains found in construction dumpster

Police will be providing an update this morning on their investigation into the discovery of human remains in a construction dumpster in Rosedale earlier this week.

The remains were located in a dumpster placed in the driveway of a vacant home on Dale Avenue near Castle Frank Road late Monday afternoon.

A police source has told CP24 that the remains are believed to belong to a child or possibly an infant.

The cause of death has not yet been determined but police have said that the circumstances appear to be suspicious.

“Right now I can’t confirm the gender, the age of this body that was located. We will hopefully get more information pending the outcome of the autopsy,” Const. Laura Brabant told CP24 Tuesday morning.

This morning’s police update is scheduled for 11 a.m.

Det. Sgt. Renee Foley from 53 Division and Insp. Hank Idsinga from the Homicide and Missing Persons Unit will be on hand to speak with reporters.

The news conference will be streamed live on CTVNewsToronto.ca and the CTV News app.
