Police were originally looking to identify the location of a photo posted by that woman on social media Monday morning, but the CPS major crimes unit’s Acting Insp. Paul Wozney said they’ve since determined where it was taken and that it was taken a year ago.

Wozney said police will not be releasing the cause of death, nor would he confirm whether the victims died in the car or before they were put in the car.

“Investigators… are piecing together any of the nuances of the relationships between the people that were found in the vehicle and also the registered owner,” he said.

“It’s very, very early on in a very complex investigation.”

Family members have identified the third victim as Glynnis Fox’s sister, Tiffany Ear. However police have yet to release her name.

Ear is remembered as being a supportive person by family that spoke with Global News.

“If you needed someone to talk to, she would be right there asking if everything is alright,” said her cousin Benji Hunter.

Officers continue to look for 26-year-old Hanock Afowerk, the man the burned car — a black 2011 Chevrolet Cruze — was registered to.

Wozney said the CPS is concerned for Afowerk’s safety, and they don’t know his role in the situation.

“We’re trying to piece together the hours leading up to this event so we can determine… who played what role in it, and really, in Mr. Afowerk’s case, where he’s at and if he’s safe.”

Anyone with photos, video or information that could help with the investigation is asked to contact the Calgary Police Service at 403-266-1234 or to anonymously contact Crime Stoppers.
