RCMP in Prince Rupert, B.C., discovered the bodies of a teen-aged boy and an adult woman Thursday in a home in the 500 block of Ebert Street.
Police say they went to the residence after someone called and asked them to check on the well-being of its occupants.
"At this stage of the investigation it is far too early to speculate as to the circumstances that led to the deaths of these two people, said Const. Matt Ericson.
"We are, however, confident in stating that this is an isolated incident and there is no risk to the members of the community.
Ericson says the investigation is being carried out by the RCMP`s major crimes section.
Police are asking anyone that may have information to contact them at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
