Though they haven’t officially ruled it a double-murder, Calgary cops say two men killed on the weekend didn’t die as a result of a murder-suicide.
Sgt. Kevin Forsen said yesterday police are expecting autopsy results today on what caused the deaths of the two men in a home at 13 Coventry Cres. N.E on Saturday night, but said they did not cause one another’s deaths.
“The investigation up to this point does not lead us to believe they killed each other. We’re still trying to determine what exactly happened and we’re awaiting the pending autopsies reports and identification,” Forsen said.
Calgary cops were attending a check on welfare call just after 8:30 p.m. Saturday when they found two men critically injured with obvious signs of a struggle.
One man was pronounced dead at the scene and the second died in hospital Sunday afternoon.
“The information we’ve gathered so far indicates the men are known to each other but they are not involved in gang activities.” Forsen said.
Residents of the normally quiet neighbourhood were shocked at the deaths.
One man, who didn’t want his name used, said he was away on Saturday but came home to find police tape surrounding the street.
“It’s normally really quiet here. This is the kind of place where the kids play hockey on the street and they only have to move the net every three or four hours. It’s shocking,” the man said.
