LaSalle Police and the Ontario Provincial Police Forensic Unit are investigating an alleged homicide in the 1400 block in Sugarwood Crescent.

Police say they were called to the residence just before 7:30am on Saturday to check on the well-being of the occupants. When the officers arrived on the scene, 34-year-old Amanda Lyons was found deceased inside the residence.

During the investigation, a suspect was identified as the female’s husband, 34-year-old Blair Lyons. His vehicle was located early Saturday morning abandoned on the Ambassador Bridge, and there is evidence that he jumped from the bridge into the Detroit River.

LaSalle Fire Service, Windsor Police Service and RCC Trenton Search and Rescue were immediately dispatched to search the Detroit River for Blair; however, he has not been located. His whereabouts are not known at this time.

Blair Lyons is described as a 34-year-old white male with short dark brown hair, short dark brown facial hair, brown eyes and a tattoo on his left shoulder. If Blair Lyons is seen or located, please contact the LaSalle Police Service immediately.

“We also ask that everyone respects the family’s privacy during this very difficult time,” a release said from LaSalle Police.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the LaSalle Police Service at 519-969-5210 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 519-258-8477 (TIPS) or online www.catchcrooks.com.
