York Regional Police (YRP) have issued a Canada-wide warrant for the arrest of two suspects following a murder in Markham in early December.

Police were called to an apartment on Buchanan Drive near Highway 7 and Warden Avenue at around 8 p.m., December 4, for reports of an injured person. They discovered the body of an adult female on the scene.

A post-mortem later determined that the woman's death was the result of a homicide.

No other details about how the woman was killed have been provided, and police also haven't confirmed her age or identity.

However, the names and photos of these two suspects have now been released.
