Death of Oakville Couple Ruled Murder-Suicide

The deaths of an Oakville couple have been ruled a murder-suicide, say Halton police detectives.

Post-mortem examinations were conducted on Thursday following the discovery of two bodies in an Oakville home on Jan. 17.

A weapons-related call from 1414 Summerhill Cres. sent tactical officers to the northeast end of town shortly before 5 a.m. on Jan. 17.

Officers arrived, finding one male and one female.

Police remained on scene near Bayshire Dr. and Summerhill Cres., near Upper Middle Rd. E. and Joshuas Creek Dr., for the day.

They found two people, since identified as Prem Singh, 69, and Jan Singh, 70.
Prem Singh shot his wife, Jan, before sustaining a fatal self-inflicted gunshot wound, homicide investigators said Friday.

The couple reportedly lived in the area for more than 20 years.
