Dead woman, newborns found inside home

Police could offer few answers Thursday after confirming the horrifying discovery of three dead newborns and a 27-year-old woman in a Calgary home earlier this week.

CALGARY — Police could offer few answers Thursday after confirming the horrifying discovery of three dead newborns and a 27-year-old woman in a Calgary home earlier this week.

Duty Insp. Rob Williams said autopsies had been performed on all four, and the death of Harsimrat Kahlon was not considered suspicious — a finding that would not preclude suicide.

“Autopsies on these newborns have now been completed, however, the cause of their deaths is still unknown,” said Williams. “Their deaths are considered suspicious in nature. Further testing is being done to determine a cause of death. This kind of testing can take weeks or even months.”

Despite that uncertainty, police are confident it is not a case where the public is at risk.

“I can probably reassure people that we’re not concerned about a serial murderer loose in the northeast,” Williams said.

Officers had been called to Kahlon’s home on Sunday and made the gruesome discovery.

Police said little, and would not release the gender of the newborns, their exact age or how long they had been in the home.

They would also not say whether Kahlon had given birth to the children.

“No further details about this case will be released until tests are completed and the investigation progresses,” said Williams.
