Police in Edmonton, Alberta investigate multiple deaths

EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) -- Police are investigating several homicides in the Edmonton, Alberta area, but are not saying if they are linked.

Police spokeman Scott Pattison said Tuesday that they were called to a home in the city's north end Monday night and found at least two bodies.

Officers are also dealing with the suspicious death of a woman in the southwest part of the city. Her body was found Monday night after officers answered a call about a weapon in a home.

Royal Canadian Mounted Police say they have been asked to help city police with an investigation in nearby Fort Saskatchewan but would not confirm if a body has been found in the area.

Mounties in nearby Strathcona County are also investigating a suspicious death in Sherwood Park, just east of Edmonton.
