An elderly woman on the verge of death had $7,000 worth of jewelry stolen from her Tuesday night, police alleged Wednesday as they appealed for information on two men who lurked the halls of Toronto East General Hospital looking for a quick score.
The two men allegedly stole the jewelry from the hospital’s Palliative Care Unit, when the dying woman’s family stepped out of the room. She passed away less than an hour later.
“The family was there visiting the victim for a vigil. She was expected to pass away,” said Detective-Constable Nora Blackmore.
The family stepped out of the room for a brief moment, about 10 minutes, and when they returned, they contents of the room had been moved.
“Her purse was on the table beside her. That’s not where the family had left it,” Det.-Const. Blackmore said.
Police allege the two men entered the Toronto East General Hospital, on Coxwell Ave., last night shortly before 8 p.m., and began going from floor to floor.
When the suspects entered her room, she was unconscious. They made off with a small amount of the woman’s jewelry.
Suspicious family members called security, who contacted police. When the police arrived less than an hour later, the woman had passed away.
Det.-Const. Blackmore said the family was obviously upset and would not be speaking publicly, nor would police release the victim's name.
Surveillance footage of two suspects has been released to the public.
The suspects are described as white, between 20 and 30 years of age. One has short, dark-brown hair and was wearing blue jeans, a black leather jacket, striped shirt and white running shoes. The other has a shaved head and was wearing a fedora-style hate and dark jacket.
