TORONTO — Relatives of a Toronto woman who died after falling from her balcony last week have postponed speaking with Ontario’s police watchdog, citing concerns about possible leaks from police sources regarding the case, the agency said Wednesday. Counsel for the family of 29-year-old Regis Korchinski-Paquet told the Special Investigations Unit such leaks undermine their clients’ trust in the investigation, the agency said. In a statement released Wednesday afternoon, the SIU stressed police are prohibited from discussing an incident under investigation by the watchdog precisely to protect the credibility of its work.
