Body of man discovered inside Christie Pits house after reported gas leak


A body was found inside a house near Christie Pits Saturday night after firefighters were called to investigate a gas leak.

The body, estimated to be that of a man in his 30s, was lifeless when paramedics arrived at the three-story house at 115 Melville Ave., near Shaw St. and Dupont St., around 10 p.m.

Emergency Medical Services could not report the man’s cause of death.

“It’s going to be a police investigation,” an EMS dispatcher said.

Police officers walked up and down Melville Ave., knocking on doors to interview neighbours.

Tenants from the house lingered outside in the cold as police officers taped off the scene.
