LETHBRIDGE – Police in Lethbridge are investigating the city’s first-ever triple homicide.
Officers were called to 230 McGill Boulevard W. around 2:30 a.m. on Tuesday by a concerned neighbour. When they arrived, police found one woman and two men dead at the scene.
The victims have been identified as 27-year-old Kyle Osborn Devine, his girlfriend, 24-year-old Clarissa Michelle English and her brother, 18-year-old Dakota Julius Ray English. (Pictures in gallery below)
All three resided at the McGill Boulevard home.
The bodies were transported to the Medical Examiner’s Office in Calgary to undergo autopsies; two of the autopsies are scheduled for Wednesday and the third on Thursday.
Investigators believe all three were killed in a targeted attack – not a random crime – and say there’s no evidence to suggest any risk to the public. They don’t believe the deaths were a murder-suicide.
Officers confirmed they have been called to the home previously in the past.
Police say no subjects are in custody.
“As with any homicide investigation, the first 24 hours are a critical piece where we’re collecting as much evidence as we can,” said Lethbridge Regional Police Service Inspector Bill Anderson during a news conference on Wednesday.
“We’re now in a position where we’re able to sift through that evidence, to be able to identify persons of interest or suspects, and be able to advance the investigation from there.”
Police say they have received a lot of tips from family and friends, and people who live in the community.
“We have received a fair amount of information, but please, I would encourage anyone that does have any information… to please contact us.”
Investigators weren’t willing to comment on a possible motive for the deaths.
