INNISFIL, Ont. -- The family of a teen who was struck dead on his bike by a cop's wife says they are "extremely disappointed" with a review of the police investigation into the boy's death.

"Our questions and concerns were not answered," Larry Hurd, a spokesperson for the family of Brandon Majewski, said on Monday. "The review was not comprehensive but rather circumscribed, limited, narrow, restricted or incomplete. Any or all of these words apply."

Majewski, 17, was killed while riding his bike on a dark stretch of road at around 1:30 a.m. on Oct. 22, 2012, when he was struck by Sharlene Simon, 42, of the Toronto area.

The fact that Simon, a York Regional Police officer’s wife, was not given a Breathalyser sparked outcry in the community, and tensions grew when news broke Simon was suing the dead boy’s family for emotional trauma.

According to the South Simcoe Police report from that night, Simon’s husband was driving behind his wife that drizzly night, but little is mentioned about him as a witness.

He pulled over when Brandon was struck, and shortly after both were allowed to go home. There were no charges.

In May, South Simcoe Police Chief Rick Beazley called for an outside police agency to review its investigation.

The Toronto Police Traffic Services reviewed the department's files and determined the investigation was thorough and complete, it was announced Friday.

The family says that is not the case.

"The Majewskis have never had the opportunity of reviewing the unredacted version of the report. Their lawyer has motioned the court and the family's lawyer should be receiving it shortly," Hurd said.
