Peel police investigate after body found in van at Erin Mills mall parking lot

MISSISSAUGA, Ont. – It’s not yet clear if Peel police are probing a new murder case in Mississauga, after a man’s body was found inside a van at a mall parking lot.

Constable Fiona Thivierge with the Peel police told 680News the discovery was made around 3:00 p.m. Saturday.

“Police received a call from a citizen, advising of a strong odour coming from a vehicle parked in front of the Zellers at Erin Mills Town Centre,” Thivierge said.

“On arrival a male party was located deceased within one of the vehicles, in a strip of vehicles that are parked,” Thivierge added.

An autopsy is scheduled to be performed in order to determine the cause of death.

“It’s undetermined the cause of death, the coroner will be doing an autopsy, and once that’s conducted we’ll have some more information on the cause of death, and based on that we’ll dictate which way our investigation goes,” Thivierge said.
