Toronto Police have confirmed that a fetus, found outside a midtown apartment block in December, was a DNA match to the woman allegedly killed by her husband at the same location.
Police say they responded to a call at 111 Raglan Avenue, near Bathurst and St. Clair on December 20th, where the bodies of 33 year old Precious Charbonneau and her husband 43 year old Robert Giblin were found.
Investigations led police to believe that Charbonneau had been stabbed a number of times before being thrown from the 21st floor of the building by her husband, who was a sergeant from the Joint Task Force Central (JTFC) based out of the Denison Armoury in Toronto.
He then jumped to his own death.
At the time, it was revealed that she had been 9 weeks pregnant.
Just days later, on December 23rd, police were back at the scene on Raglan Avenue where they discovered a fetus.
A seperate investigation was then launched and efforts began to determine if the discovery was linked to the alleged murder – suicide.
On Tuesday, Police confirmed that DNA tests had revealed that the fetus was a match to Precious Charbonneau.
The investigation is ongoing and police say that the family are requesting privacy at this time.
