Woman dead, man in custody in Ajax

A woman is dead and a man is in custody following a violent incident in Ajax on Saturday night.

Police say they were called to 14 Hillman Drive in the area of Shoal Point Road and Bayly Street East just after 11 p.m.

When investigators arrived they found a 45-year-old woman who was pronounced dead at the scene. A 35-year-old man has been taken into custody.

“What seems to be an unknown trouble incident last night developed quickly into a devastating loss of life, our third homicide of 2024,” said Duty Insp. Rob Williamson.

“It’s crucial to point out here that the victim and the male are known to each other,” Williamson said without getting into the specific nature of their relationship.

Police did not indicate the cause of death except to say the woman sustained “serious trauma” and they are not looking for any other suspects.

Neighbourhood residents tell CityNews a woman bought the home one to two years ago and that at least one other person was living in the home, possibly in the basement.
