Regina police have now ruled three homicides from incidents that occurred on Friday and Saturday. Police say there is no evidence that these cases are connected in the early stages of these investigations.
“It is unusual to have four homicides in any calendar month, and even more unusual that these homicides have all taken place in the first month of 2020,” said Elizabeth Popowich with RPS in the release.
“Through diligent, collective effort, police have made arrests and laid charges in two of these homicides, which has an immediate positive impact on public safety.”
Police say the investigation is ongoing in conjunction with the coroner’s service.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Regina Police Service or Crime Stoppers.
