EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) — A Canadian law enforcement official says nine deaths at three crime scenes are connected in what's being called the worst mass murder in Edmonton.
Chief Rod Knecht says the killings were the result of a domestic dispute. The victims included a woman found last night by officers who were responding to a weapons complaint at a south Edmonton home.
The bodies of three more women, two men, a boy and a girl were discovered a few hours later in the northeast part of the city where officers had checked on reports of a depressed, suicidal male earlier in the evening.
A man matching the description of the suicidal male was found dead in a restaurant in suburban Fort Saskatchewan today.
Police are not yet commenting on the specific connection between the deaths
