UPDATE: Rideau Terrace re-opens after suspicious package investigation

Rideau Terrace has re-opened after a suspicious package investigation at 200 Rideau Terrace.

Police say a tube with wires going through it was found, but was deemed to be harmless after it was checked out with an X-Ray. The lower floors of the building were evacuated and the road closed between Springfield Road and Lambton Avenue were closed as a precaution.

Residents of the building say a body was found in one of the lower-level apartments around 10 a.m. Sunday, and residents of the lower floors were told to leave the building in the afternoon.

Monique Lalonde, a resident of the building, said she heard disturbing screams around 10 a.m.

"Somebody was hurting or found something that they didn't like," she said. "I was in the bathroom and I ran to the balcony to see what was going on. We didn't see anything except the police."

Police wouldn't confirm whether or not there was a death in the building.
