No arrests have been made in connection with the case and police haven’t released any suspect information, though officers said it’s believed the victims were targeted.
Earlier this week, the OPP said the team investigating the double homicide in Pembroke was in connection with a team investigating a fatal shooting that happened in the Town of Renfrew a few days earlier, but officers noted that they “cannot speculate on any potential connections.”
“We haven’t established if there’s a connection but we are still speaking in case there does turn out to be one,” provincial Const. Mike Mahon told Global News on Friday.
“But at this time we can’t speculate as to whether they’re connected or not.”
The OPP said there will continue to be a large police presence in the area of the Pembroke homicides as the investigation continues.
Anyone with information was asked to contact the OPP or Crime Stoppers.
