Hamilton Police arrest a man in Hamilton’s third homicide

A man is in custody charged with second degree murder following the discovery of a body in a downtown apartment building. On Sunday, August 7, 2022, police received information that a number of emails had been sent to a variety of media outlets with information related to a deceased person. 

Based on the information, police attended a residence at 175 Catherine Street South and located a deceased male in his 60s. The male had injuries consistent with foul play and the case was deemed a homicide. 

Police have been unable to make a positive identification of the deceased due to the level of decomposition. Investigators have been in contact with family members related to the apartment’s occupant and they are aware of the ongoing investigation. 

An autopsy will be performed in the coming days and additional steps taken to identify the deceased.

Police have charged 41-year-old Jonathan Lewis with 2nd degree murder. Police are not seeking additional suspects and believe this was an isolated incident.
