Yesterday at 3:45 pm, Toronto Fire responded to a call in North York’s York University Heights area for a trash fire.


Once the fire was extinguished, police and paramedics were called to the scene as a body was found among the burning materials.


The Toronto Paramedic Services reported to the scene but did not transport anyone to the hospital.


At about 8 pm Tuesday night, police confirmed that a body had been found, but did not disclose further details as the investigation was still ongoing.


A statement made by Toronto Police Constable Alex Li indicated that homicide had taken over the investigation of the "suspicious death."  He continued saying, “This couldn’t be more ill-timed, but (police) are working on notifying next-of-kin.”
