Three bodies were found in a vehicle in northern Alberta earlier this month.
Wood Buffalo RCMP officers came upon a vehicle on the Laguna access road near Conklin, Alberta on January 9, where they found three unresponsive people.
A release from the Wood Buffalo RCMP confirmed that the driver was a 29-year-old man, while the two passengers were females aged 21-year-old and 22-year-old.
Emergency first aid was attempted, but all three people were ultimately pronounced dead at the scene.
A mechanical inspection of the vehicle was completed in the following weeks, which found cause to believe that a faulty exhaust system may have led to exhaust fumes leaking into the cabin of the car.
Police do not know whether this was an existing problem or a first-time occurrence.
“Our thoughts and sympathies continue with the communities and the involved families during this difficult time. Wood Buffalo Victim Services can be reached at 1-780-788-4250, and continue to offer assistance to family, friends, and witnesses,” the Wood Buffalo RCMP stated in a release.
