At a news conference on Tuesday afternoon, Const. Ryan Meko of the Bay St. George RCMP said the two bodies found in a cabin in Southwest Brook on Monday morning were that of a 67-year-old man and a 54-year-old woman.

But he was tight-lipped on providing much more information on the sudden deaths, other than to say there is no concern for public safety for people in the area.

Const. Meko wouldn’t provide any details of whether there was a weapon used, how police were alerted to the incident or how long police will be continuing their investigation, other to say “as long as it takes.”

The RCMP major crime unit and the forensic identification section out of Corner Brook are assisting the Bay St. George RCMP with the investigation into the deaths. Both those units have been on the scene since Monday afternoon. RCMP received notification of the deaths at 10:30 a.m. on Monday.

Const. Meko said he couldn’t reveal where the two are from, whether or not they are a couple or any details that might lead to their identity at this time.

He said the next of kin have been notified for one of the two, while police are still trying to get in contact with some next of kin for the other person.

While he expects further details would be released after autopsies have been performed in St. John’s on Wednesday, he’s not sure what time of day they will be completed.
