Peel police have identified the victim of a Brampton slaying as Sharanjeet Kaur after a 35-year-old man allegedly killed her and then took his own life on Monday.

That man has since been identified as Navdeep Singh of Brampton. 

"At this time investigators are not seeking any further suspects and this investigation is ongoing," Peel police said in a news release Tuesday. 

The pair were found dead inside a home on Bighorn Crescent in Brampton around 2 p.m. Monday, after police received a medical distress call.

According to Insp. Martin Ottaway, a friend of the 27-year-old victim reported her missing to Toronto police earlier that day.

Police said Kaur's death was a homicide later Monday. 

Ottaway said the man and woman were previously in an intimate relationship, but he could not comment on the status of their relationship as of their deaths. Neither had any previous contact with police in Peel or Toronto, he added.

"This is the first we came aware of obvious issues between them," he said.  

13 domestic homicides in Peel this year 

Ottaway said that of the 27 homicides in Peel in 2019, 13 of them have been domestic in nature, involving either family members or people in intimate relationships.

"Any one of them is troubling," he said.  

"My message to women, or for that matter any family member that's involved in domestic issues, is that there is help out there for them and to use those resources." 

Anyone with information on Monday's incident is urged to call Peel police's homicide and missing persons bureau or leave an anonymous tip with Crime Stoppers.
