Edmonton’s Medical Examiner confirmed that both victims died from multiple gunshot wounds, Edmonton Police announced on Thursday.
Detectives believe this was not a random act, and that these drug-related murders are connected with drug activity in Lower Mainland B.C.
The two men were found dead in a running, white Dodge Ram truck with B.C. plates on 39 Street, near Charlesworth Drive, on Wednesday at approximately 1:30 p.m. by a member of the public.
Detectives continue to investigate and ask for information about the deaths and suspects.
