Gatineau police investigating suspicious deaths
Autopsies will be done Tuesday or Wednesday on the bodies of a man and a woman found dead inside an Aylmer home on Monday, Jan. 6, 2014.
Gatineau Police are investigating the deaths of the young couple believed to be in their twenties.
Police have not confirmed the identities of the pair, but friends and family on social media, as well as other media reports, have identified them as Amanda Trottier, and Travis Votour.
Police were called to the home at 158 Rue de la Terasse Eardley shortly before 1 p.m. Monday.
Forensics officers spent hours at the home and cordoned off a section of the residential road surrounding the home as part of their investigation.
Police have not said whether it is a double murder, but they describe the deaths as suspicious.
Police say they have not located all of the next of kin of one of the victims. They say they will not be releasing the identities of the victims until the families have been notified.
One neighbour tells CTV News he heard two loud bangs early Monday afternoon. He says they sounded like what could be gunshots, but police have not confirmed if any shots were fired in connection to this case.
Police remain at the scene, where a command post has been set up.
They have canvassed the neighbourhood, and are asking anyone with information linked to this case to contact them.
