Montreal police confirm double homicide after mother and daughter found dead in Lachine home | CBC News


A mother and daughter were found dead inside a home in Montreal’s Lachine borough early Thursday morning in what police are now calling a double homicide.

A Montreal police spokesperson said officers first received a call about a disappearance just past midnight. 

About an hour later, a short investigation led them to a home on J.-S.-Aimé-Ashby Terrace, a quiet street ringing a small park near Highway 20 in southwestern Montreal. 

After entering the home, they found two bodies. Police later said the two dead were a mother, 56, and daughter,12.

Major crimes investigators have cordoned off the area and have not yet released the identities of the dead.

Police initially assessed the deaths as “suspicious.” But around 9 a.m., they began calling the incident a double homicide.

It was the third time in as many nights that police reported homicides in the city.

Early Tuesday, a man was found suffering from stab wounds in a park in the Plateau-Mont-Royal borough. Early Wednesday, a man was found shot to death in a van in the Montréal-Nord borough.

The latest deaths are the 17th and 18th homicides on territory covered by the Montreal police this year.
