"He always was smiling", she said, adding that they lived in the same building in Thorncliffe Park, a 21-story gray building that's home to immigrants and Canadians alike. According to the family, he suffered from psychosis and received both medicine and therapy, but doctors were "unable to treat him".

"At this stage, we have no evidence to support these claims", Toronto Police Chief Mark Saunders said on Wednesday.
