Winnipeg, February 11, 2024 - In a series of tragic events that unfolded this morning, five individuals, including two adult females and three children, were discovered dead in three separate scenes, prompting a widespread investigation by Manitoba RCMP.

At approximately 7:30 am, the Carman RCMP responded to a distressing report of a hit-and-run incident along Highway 3, approximately 6.5 kilometers south of Carman. Upon arrival at the scene, officers discovered the lifeless body of an adult female in a nearby ditch adjacent to the highway. Despite immediate medical attention, she was pronounced dead at the scene.

As the morning progressed, another distress call, this time to the Headingley RCMP, report detailed a vehicle engulfed in flames along Highway 248, north of PTH 424 in the RM of Cartier. Before police arrived, a courageous witness managed to extract three young children from the burning vehicle. Tragically, all three children were declared deceased upon the arrival of emergency responders.

Amidst the chaos of the vehicle fire, a 29-year-old male was apprehended at the scene and taken into custody by RCMP officers.

As the investigation unfolded, RCMP were led to a residence in Carman, where they discovered the lifeless body of yet another female.

the RCMP have indicated that the adult male in custody, along with all five deceased individuals, are believed to have been acquainted with each other prior to these distressing events.

With all five deaths deemed suspicious, the investigation has been escalated, drawing the involvement of the RCMP Major Crime Services, alongside the Carman RCMP, Headingley/Stonewall RCMP, RCMP Forensic Identification Services, and the RCMP Forensic.
