Councilor Mike Vagnini

Shortly before 2:30 p.m. today, February 13, 2024, officers were dispatched to the area of Reserve Camp Road on Atikiamekshing First Nation as the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) had contacted GSPS with the location of the black 2021 Ram 1500 truck with Ontario license plate BK22178 that Michael Vagnini was last seen driving on January 27, 2024.

Officers from the OPP and Detectives from the Major Crime Section of our Criminal Investigation Division along with officers from Patrol Operations and the Rural Community Response Unit attended the area.

Unfortunately, 62-year-old, Michael Vagnini was located deceased a short distance from the vehicle. Detectives are in the preliminary stages of the death investigation and at this time, foul play is not suspected.

Detectives are working in collaboration with the OPP and the Coroner’s Office in relation to the death investigation. A postmortem will be conducted through the Coroner’s Office to assist in determining the cause of death.

Our deepest condolences go out to Michael’s family and friends. We ask that you respect their privacy during this very difficult and emotional time.

We would like to thank our officers, police professionals and detectives, as well as members of the OPP and North Shore Search and Rescue who dedicated hundreds of hours to this investigation. Many of these individuals knew Michael personally and wanted nothing more than a positive outcome.

Since the time that Michael was reported missing, the outpouring of support from the community has been unparalleled. Michael Vagnini was a beloved member of this community and an advocate for GSPS, not only through his role on City Council but as a member of the Police Services Board having served as both the Chair and Vice Chair. We are extremely saddened to hear of his death, and we will continue to support his family throughout the investigation.
