Human fetus found at Toronto apartment building not related to murder-suicide: police

TORONTO — Police say a human fetus found at a midtown apartment is not related to an apparent murder-suicide where a Canadian soldier allegedly stabbed his pregnant wife and threw her off the building’s balcony.

Const. Victor Kwong told Global News a call came in at 9:17 a.m. Wednesday for a report of human remains found in the area of 111 Raglan Ave.

Police said a witness described the object as a fetus but authorities have called in the coroner for further investigation. Investigators confirmed the remains are a human fetus and are canvassing for more information.

Precious Charbonneau, 33, and Robert Giblin, 43, were found dead after they plunged from the 21st floor of the apartment building Sunday night.

Their bodies were discovered with “obvious signs of trauma” and police said Charbonneau was the victim of a homicide.
