Two Canadians Found Dead in Florida Treated as Double Homicide
Global Affairs Canada has confirmed to our media partner CTV News that its officials are in contact with officials in Florida after two Canadians were found dead in Pompano Beach.
According to local media reports, the bodies of Marc and Rita Gagne, believed to be in their 60s or 70s, were discovered inside their mobile home by a concerned neighbour late Friday afternoon, after the couple hadn't been seen in several days.
“Our thoughts and sympathies are with the loved ones of the Canadian citizens who were found dead in Florida," Global Affairs spokesperson Stefano Maron told CTV News. "Canadian consular officials in Miami are in contact with local authorities to gather additional information.”
The Broward County Sheriff's Office is treating the case as a double homicide, but will not confirm the nationalities of the Gagnes.
The couple is believed to be from Quebec.
Global Affairs Canada says it cannot provide any other details on the situation at the current time.
