VPD detectives continue to work with the BC Coroners Service to confirm what caused the deaths of an elderly couple on Monday afternoon. There is no evidence, at this time, to suggest anyone else was involved in this incident.

Just after 5 p.m. on November 27th, the bodies of a 77-year-old woman and a 79-year-old man were discovered in their home on Granville Street near W. 5th Avenue. Based on the information collected by our investigators, it appears this couple died together in their apartment.

In order to respect the grieving family, no additional details will be provided.
