Po­lice probe sud­den death in Hamilton lobby

The Hamilton Spectator - - Local -

Hamilton po­lice are in­ves­ti­gat­ing a sud­den death down­town af­ter a woman’s body was found in the lobby of an apart­ment build­ing early Fri­day.

Emer­gency crews were called to 226 Re­becca St. near Cath­cart Street at 5:27 a.m. af­ter a se­cu­rity guard found a woman found with­out vi­tal signs in the lobby.

Po­lice say the se­cu­rity guard ini­tially be­lieved the woman was sleep­ing.

She was pro­nounced dead at the scene by paramedics.

Po­lice are still try­ing to de­ter­mine the woman’s iden­tity and no­tify fam­ily. She was not a res­i­dent of the build­ing.

Po­lice say the death is not con­sid­ered sus­pi­cious. The coro­ner has been no­ti­fied and an au­topsy will re­veal more, po­lice said.
