Brantford police treating discovery of body in March as a homicide

Brantford police say they are now treating the death of a 37-year-old woman in the city’s south end in March 2020 as a homicide.

Detectives say the decision to classify the discovery of a body on Mintern Avenue on March 11 as an unlawful killing was based on information received from the coroner’s office and the Ontario Forensic Pathology Service.

“As a result of the investigation, police are treating the death of Shannon MacDougall as a homicide,” investigators said in a release on Monday.
