NAVDEEP Sidhu, 24 and Harman Mangat, 22, both residents of British Columbia, have been identified as those found dead in Southeast Edmonton on Wednesday (January 11).

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.

Anyone with information is urged to contact the EPS at 780-423-4567 or #377 from a mobile phone. Anonymous information can also be submitted to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or online at www.tipsubmit.com/start.htm
