Two bodies found in Charleswood home
Winnipeg police homicide unit investigating Roblin Boulevard bungalow
Winnipeg police are investigating after finding two bodies inside a Charleswood home on Friday.
Officers taped off a home in the 4300 block of Roblin Boulevard just after 8 a.m.
Officers could be seen standing in the home’s driveway and going in and out of the home.
At one point, multiple people could be seen crying in the home’s driveway, surrounded by police officers.
Winnipeg police released few details about the discovery, and Const. Jason Michalyshen said officers were still trying to positively identify the bodies as well as determine what happened inside the home.
"Lots of work needs to be done. We certainly have to allow investigators to gather as much information as they can with respect to what they are exactly dealing with before we make that public," said Michalyshen.
"I can tell you we do have members of our homicide unit actively involved."
The forensic identification unit was also called in to work on the case, according to police.
Michalyshen said multiple interviews are underway, but no arrests have been made so far.
Sandra Patterson works near the home, and said she was shocked to see so many police cars in the normally quiet neighbourhood.
"You don’t see any kind of action like this in the neighbourhood," said Patterson.
"It’s very shocking to see all the police presence, the ambulance and everything going on."
RCMP investigate in separate neighbourhood
On Friday morning, RCMP officers converged in the area of Gateway Road and Windsor Avenue in Elmwood.
RCMP cruiser cars could be seen parked near a home in the area, but RCMP remained tight-lipped about what they were investigating.
More information was expected to be released over the weekend.
