TORONTO -- A Toronto woman found dead inside a Brampton home was the victim of a murder-suicide and had been reported missing the day before her death, police say.
Authorities were called to a home near Eagle Ridge Drive and Bighorn Crescent around 2 p.m. on Monday.
Police said they found 27-year-old Sharanjeet Kaur's body and the body of a 35-year-old Navdeep Singh inside the home. The death of the Kaur has now been deemed a homicide, police said.
"The male deceased had murdered the female victim and then took his own life," Insp. Marty Ottaway told reports on Tuesday.
"The two parties had been in an intimate relationship in the past."
