Thunder Bay – NEWS –  A male suspect has been apprehended by the Thunder Bay Police Service (TBPS) in relation to a recent homicide incident in the city’s south side.

Homicide Incident on Mary Street East

Officers of the TBPS Primary Response Branch were dispatched to a residence located on the 200 block of Mary Street East at approximately 11:30 a.m. on Tuesday, June 27. Upon arrival, they discovered an adult female who had suffered serious injuries indicative of a recent assault and was pronounced dead at the scene.

The area was promptly cordoned off as a crime scene, and the investigation was escalated to the TBPS Major Crimes and Forensic Identification Units.

Suspect Identified and Charged

Following extensive investigative efforts, a male suspect was identified by the police. Interestingly, the accused was already under police custody for an unrelated incident. He was subsequently re-arrested and formally charged on Wednesday, June 28.

The accused, identified as 41-year-old Cameron Gary-James Adomko of Thunder Bay, faces charges of Second-Degree Murder and two counts of Breach of Probation.

Under the Criminal Code of Canada, if Adomko is convicted of second-degree murder, he faces a mandatory sentence of life imprisonment, with no possibility of parole until at least 25 years of his sentence have been served​1​. The consequences for a breach of probation conviction, on the other hand, can range from a fine to imprisonment for up to 2 years less a day for a summary conviction, or up to 10 years for an indictable conviction​2​.

Adomko is scheduled to make a court appearance today, Thursday, June 29, in Thunder Bay.
