No information on deaths

Caledon police are still tight-lipped over two strange cases involving dead bodies.

On July 31, police were called out to what at the time was being described as a sudden death at a residential property on Humber Station Road. The death was soon ruled a homicide and the police identified the victim as 54-year old Giuseppe Antonio Colavita.

They have not since issued any information other than to say an autopsy had been performed, which confirmed the death as a homicide. They have not said how he died or if there are suspects, but have issued please to the public for assistance.

The other incident occurred in the early hours of Aug. 5, when Caledon Fire and Emergency Services were called to a car fire on McLaughlin Road North near Mayfield Road in the Town of Caledon. Fire crews extinguished the vehicle fire and human remains were discovered inside the vehicle.

The autopsy confirmed the victim to be 66-year-old Hari Ram of Brampton.

Curiously, that fire occurred three days after another one that occurred in an area near the 25th Sideroad and Hurontario Street in the Town of Mono.

A man’s body was also discovered in that vehicle. The OPP has not commented on this case since identifying the body.
