TORONTO, May 29, 2020 – Epilepsy Toronto joins all of Toronto in mourning the tragic loss of Regis Korchinski-Paquet earlier this week. Our thoughts are with her family and friends during this very difficult time.
It has been reported that Ms. Korchinski-Paquet lived with a seizure-related disorder that has been speculated to have played a part in her tragic death. However, the incident is still under investigation and nothing has been confirmed in this regard. It is not known for example, whether she had experienced a seizure either prior to, or during this event. We await the results of the investigation with great interest.
