(Note: In the press release by CKLPS they issued a photo to accompany the release. The photo shows liquid being poured onto a floor by an individual wearing black gloves and grey track pants. Unfortunately and adding to the confusion, it doesn’t state whether it is a file photo or one from the incident. If it is a stock photo it should be identified as such to give the reader that knowledge. If it is from the investigation the same applies)
