A community is in mourning after the senseless shooting deaths of two residents.
High Prairie RCMP confirmed July 28 that the deaths of Dylan Laboucan, 17, and Cory Grey, 19, where by shooting.
“Late yesterday, the Office of the Medical Examiner in Edmonton completed the autopsies of Dylan Laboucan and Cory Grey,” reads an RCMP news release. “The findings of the medical examiner are that both Laboucan and Grey are the victims of homicide. The medical examiner has also concluded that both victims were shot.”
The RCMP investigation now focuses upon arresting the person or persons responsible for the murders.
“Investigators have a significant amount of evidence that has been collected thus far and feel strongly this was not a random act,” say police.
The investigation continues.
The event has been a shock to the family and friends of both Laboucan, Grey, and the entire Whitefish River First
Police were quick to credit the efforts of community members.
“If not for the tireless efforts of the community members and their participation in the search of the rural area outside High Prairie, it is unlikely the bodies of both victims would have been located as early as they had been.”
The RCMP is appealing to anyone in the public who may have information regarding the deaths to call the High Prairie RCMP detachment at  523-3370.
