Penticton RCMP were notified after the Summerland Fire Department was called the road next to the Penticton Shooting Sports Range, on September 15th.
When firefighters arrived at the scene of the fire, they discovered two deceased individuals and contacted the police. Investigators have determined that these deaths are suspicious. The BC RCMP Serious Crime Unit has since taken carriage of the investigation. The victim’s identities have not been released by police at this time.
A vehicle was later reported to be on fire in Oliver, and investigators from both detachments are working to determine if these incidents are connected.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the SED MCU tipline at 1-877-987-8477.
