WILLIAMSTOWN – Provincial police say a man has died after a fall at a Williamstown home Tuesday afternoon.

The home on Heron Road was cordoned off with police tape most of Tuesday afternoon and evening and again this morning (Wednesday).

O.P.P. say the victim, now identified as 28-year-old Leonide Egorov, was injured from a fall. He later died from his injuries.

“The investigation and a post-mortem has confirmed (the) death as non-suspicious,” SD&G O.P.P. Const. Eric Ranger said.

O.P.P. East Region spokesman Bill Dickson told Cornwall Newswatch Tuesday that there was no risk to the public in the area.

Witnesses said police had been at the bungalow on Heron Road, on the south side of the Raisin River, since 5:30 p.m. Tuesday and that a police criminal investigations unit was also on site.

Evidence cones had been placed around the property, one witness said.

Two sources also told CNW that the home has recently been sold within the past month.
