Police remained on a rural property south of Edmonton Monday where two bodies were found a day earlier.
RCMP were called out to the site about three kilometres east of Millet on Sunday after getting a call about suspicious activity at 9:40 a.m.
Police were unable to enter the property safely and called in an emergency response team, said RCMP Const. Scott Mercer. Some people who live in the area were told to remain in their homes.
The bodies were found in the afternoon. Police have described the deaths as suspicious.
No other information is being released, including names, until the bodies have been identified, said Mercer. Police said they are not looking for any suspects.
On Monday, people living near the scene told the CBC there is no home on the property, which was used to pasture horses.
"A man and a woman would go out there in the summertime with the horses roped or whatever, and be taking them around in circles and training them," said Nikita Pawlick, who lives nearby. "I think that's all that ever really went in the property."
Millet is 55 kilometres south of Edmonton.
