The bodies of two people have been discovered in a home in a rural area in Anglemont, B.C.
Unconfirmed reports suggest they may have been shot.
News of the incident first began emerging on social media late Tuesday afternoon, with reports of “a heavy police presence,” including unmarked police vehicles heading north of Celista.
RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey says the investigation is still in its early stages, and is being led by the Southeast District Major Crime Unit, with more resources being moved into the area to assist.
O’Donaghey said police were called to a home located along Fraser Road, at approximately 3:40 p.m.
Police are treating both sudden deaths as suspicious in nature at this time, O’Donaghey said in a press release.
“Our investigators’ primary goal will be to positively identify each of the deceased. Forensic specialists will be assisting major crimes with the collection of evidence as they conduct a full examination of the scene.”
The operation last night by RCMP is believed to have been “high risk,” with locals advised to remain indoors.
No suspect information is known at this time.
