The Special Investigations Unit (SIU) says they are investigating after a 24-year-old woman fell to her death Monday afternoon.

The SIU said Durham police were called at around 2 p.m. to 1 Mary Street North in Oshawa for a report of a woman on a parkade roof.

“Upon arrival, officers located a woman on the roof and attempts were made to speak with her,” the SIU said in a news release. “A short time later, the woman fell seven floors to the ground below. She was pronounced deceased at the scene.”

No other information has been released by Durham Regional Police or the SIU at this time.

The SIU is called in where there has been death, serious injury or allegations of sexual assault involving police and members of the public.
