A Wednesday morning update from CPS states that the search for evidence in relation to the deaths has officially concluded, though they thanked the public and Alberta Parks Fish and Wildlife Officers for assistance in what they described in the release as a “difficult investigation.”

34-year-old Roberts Leeming was arrested and charged with two counts of second-degree murder shortly after the bodies were found.

“As this matter is now before the courts, no further interviews will be provided, and new information is not expected to be released,” CPS’ final update read on Wednesday.

GoFundMe page has been set up to assist the victims’ family with funeral expenses, which has already raised over $20,000 in the two days since it was created.

The Lovett family released a statement shortly after the bodies were found.

“Our family would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to the entire Calgary Police Service as well as those who have worked diligently in the search for Jasmine and her baby girl Aliyah,” the statement reads.

“We would also like to thank the public for their continued support which has meant a great deal to us. Our lives have been devastated and our hearts are heavy. We are trying to understand how this tragedy could have happened to our loved ones.”
