Toronto man wanted for 2nd-degree murder after woman found dead on stairs of home, police say

Toronto police investigators say they are looking for a 55-year-old man in connection with the death of a 60-year-old woman at a west-end home earlier in September.

According to a statement issued by the service on Tuesday, emergency crews were called to a home on Stanmills Road at Ramsbury Road, near the intersection of Islington Avenue and The Queensway, just before 6:15 p.m. on Sept. 4 for a “medical complaint.”

After officers arrived, the statement said the victim, identified as Rose Di Pinto, was found dead at the bottom of a set of stairs.

Investigators said an autopsy was held four days later and for an undisclosed reason homicide investigators were called in to take over the investigation.
