TORONTO – Investigators now confirm the man who fell to his death on the DVP over the weekend is the husband and father of the woman and two young boys found slain in their Toronto apartment hours later.
Toronto Police say the man fell from the Millwood Bridge onto the southbound lanes of the Don Valley Parkway shortly after 1 p.m. Saturday and was struck by a Toyota Prius.
“The man suffered fatal injuries and died at the scene,” Const. Clint Stibbe said in a statement released Wednesday.
Several hours after the man fell to his death, investigators went to notify his next-of-kin at a highrise.
Zahra Abdille, 43, and her two sons, Faris, 13, and Zain, 8, were found murdered inside the family’s third-floor apartment.
The dead man has now been identified as Yusuf Osman Abdille, 50, of Toronto.
“His involvement in the homicides is still being investigated,” Stribbe said.
