SIU clears Toronto police officers in 2015 death of man involving stun gun
Ontario’s police watchdog has cleared Toronto police officers in relation to a 2015 death in which stun guns were discharged.
Investigators from the Special Investigations Unit (SIU) say there are “no reasonable grounds to lay criminal charges” in the death of 43-year-old Rodrigo Almonacid Gonzalez.
“I have no concerns whatsoever with the conduct of the police up to the point of the forced entry into the bathroom. The initial police response to the 911 call was both prompt and sensible.” said SIU Director Tony Loparco.
A forensic pathologist’s report identified the cause of death as complications of acute cocaine toxicity, and did not indicate that CEW discharges played any role in the death.
