SCUGOG: A woman is dead and a man is in serious condition following what Durham police describe as a 'domestic-related incident' in Blackstock earlier this week.
Members of the DRPS' homicide unit, North Division criminal investigations bureau and the forensic identification unit attended the Crestview Dr. home at approximately 5:35 a.m. Monday morning (July 29). According to police, the woman was pronounced at the scene and the injured man was rushed to Lakeridge Health Port Perry before being transferred to a Toronto hospital with life-threatening injuries.
As of press time, police did not confirm whether any charges had been laid in connection with the incident.
Although police have not released the names or ages of the man and woman involved, they have been identified as Terry and Aleta Kindree. Neighbours of the home described the pair as a couple with two sons, as well as two Doberman dogs.
One neighbour said that she often heard the sounds of one of the boys drum practices coming from the home.
Another neighbour, who requested their name not be published, said that despite knowing most people in the neighbourhood, they had never spoken to the Kindrees.
"It's definitely unexpected," said the neighbour.
Anyone with new information regarding this incident is asked to contact D/Sgt. JJ Allan of the Homicide Unit at 1-888-579-1520 ext. 5400.
