Gatineau police are investigating what they're calling two suspicious deaths after a couple in their twenties was found dead at an Aylmer home on Monday.
Police were called to 158 de la Terrasse Eardley St., near des Allumettières Boulevard and Eardley Road, at 12:50 p.m.
"Right now, we are not ruling anything out about the investigation but what I can tell you is it is little bit too early to confirm anything that happened inside," said Gatineau police spokesman Pierre Lanthier on Monday.
Family and friends of the victims have identified the couple as Amanda Trottier and Travis Votour, both in their twenties.
Trottier's father arrived at the home after noon to pick up Amanda's three-year-old daughter. He found the woman and her partner dead, but the toddler alive.
Corey Houle, the father of the child, said he was at work when his family called him to tell him what happened.
He said according to Trottier's father, the child was upstairs and alone in the bedroom when she was discovered.
Gatineau police's major crimes unit and forensic unit will be returning to the home to investigate Tuesday, Lanthier said.
Autopsies are scheduled for Tuesday or Wednesday in Montreal.
