A dead body found in a car parked at a popular Brampton plaza Wednesday (March 7) has been identified as a young woman who went missing last week.
Peel Regional Police say the death of Mandeep Tagger, 25, nicknamed “Honey,” who went missing March 2 from her home in the area of Oaklea Boulevard and Tumbleweed Trail, is no longer considered suspicious and have said the woman was “in crisis.”
She disappeared and was believed to be driving a grey Nissan Altima, which she was found in Wednesday.
It’s believed a tow truck driver made the tragic discovery at the Heart Lake Shopping Centre around 3:40 p.m. when he arrived at the plaza at the corner of Sandalwood Parkway East and Kennedy Road North, to tow the car.
There was a large police presence at the plaza. Residents in the area expressed their concern on social media.
“There’s yellow tape all over the plaza,” said Tweeter Kathy Zawadzkie. “It’s frightening. Lots of police cars and fire trucks.”
Zawadzkie later added “it’s so sad” when she learned of the identity of the woman.
