A man in the 70's has died from "serious" injuries called for in his home Monday morning.
At about 6:30 pm, Toronto police responded to a medical call made by husband's wife from home on Hertford Ave., in Eglinton Ave. W. and Keele St. area.
"We found a man with serious injuries who died on the scene," It. Andy Singh said and noted "there may be a link between the suspect and the victim."
Singh says that the victim's wife cooperates with the investigation. The couple have children who live in GTA.

The suspect is described as a white man wearing black escaping a ravine stretching behind the victim's home.
The police had the dog unit that was looking for the area.
Singh says that the police make sure to talk to anyone who can have surveillance video in the area or who may have been ready to work early and saw someone suspicious.
"There is no threat to public security," Singh said, adding: "It is still early in the investigation and we are looking at a motive."
Brad Smith, who has lived next to the murder scene for 20 years, says his older male neighbor was a quiet, retired Toronto firefighter.
"I was out about seven this morning to fill the bird feeder and the police set up bands but would just tell me it had been an event," Smith said.
The man is the city's 18th victim of murder for the year.
