A 24-year-old Woodstock man charged with manslaughter in connection to a suspicious death investigation in the city will appear in court Friday for a bail hearing.
It was just before 3 p.m. Wednesday when Woodstock Police responded to the area of Tecumseh St. for a medical assistance call.
Details remain limited, but officers and EMS officials attended the scene and located a 48-year-old man. “Life saving measures were initiated and were unsuccessful,” said a police media release Wednesday.
“Woodstock Police found a man, did CPR, and unfortunately the man died,” said Woodstock Police Cst. Nikki VanLeeuwen on Thursday. “We contacted the Criminal Investigations Branch and our Forensic Investigation Unit. They attended, and deemed (that it) seemed to be suspicious.”
Early Thursday morning, officers arrested and charged a 24-year-old man, identified by police as Flavius Miron of Woodstock, with manslaughter in connection to the incident.
A post mortem is pending, and police say a cause of death is not yet known. The victim’s identity has not been released, and no further suspects are being sought.
Investigators remained at the scene early Thursday evening.
“The investigation will continue, I’m not sure for how long, but at present they’re still investigating,” VanLeeuwen said.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Woodstock Police at 519-537-2323 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-421-TIPS (8477).
