Double death in Edmonton under investigation

Police say they are not looking for suspects in the deaths of two people whose bodies were discovered inside a north Edmonton home.

EDMONTON — Police say they are not looking for suspects in the deaths of two people whose bodies were discovered inside a north Edmonton home.

Officers were called to the home, where neighbours say a family of four lived, around 12:45 p.m. Sunday.

Some media reported an adult man and a male child were found dead, but homicide detectives would not confirm the gender or age of the deceased.

Police remained tight-lipped about the investigation.

Neighbours said a couple — a man and woman in their 30s or 40s — had been living in the home for around two years with an 11-year-old boy.

They said another boy came to the home only on weekends.
