SIU investigating man's death in Guelph after break and enter
Clyde Abbott, 72, collapsed while speaking with police, SIU says
A 72-year-old man is dead after a break and enter at his home in Guelph, and his death has prompted an investigation by the province's Special Investigations Unit.
The SIU says Guelph police officers were called to a residence on Speedvale Avenue E., near Victoria Avenue N., at 11:30 a.m. Thursday after receiving a report of a break and enter.
Clyde Abbott, 72, owned the home. While speaking with police, he collapsed. Officers performed first aid while waiting for the ambulance, Guelph police said in a release.
He was taken to hospital but was pronounced dead a short time later, the SIU said.
An autopsy took place in Hamilton on Friday. The cause of death has not been released.
The SIU said two investigators and one forensic investigator have been assigned to the case.
The SIU investigates death, serious injuries or allegations of sexual assault where there's police involvement.
