A Winnipeg couple hadn’t been seen for nearly a week before they were found dead inside a troubled Wolseley rooming house.

Police have identified the pair as 31-year-old Trevor James Sinclair and his 19-year-old common law partner, Unice Ophelia Crow. No cause of death has been released as police await autopsy and toxicology results.

However, police confirmed today both deaths are being treated as homicides. But they say nothing has been ruled out, including the possibility of a murder-suicide.

Police were called to the suite inside 210 Chestnut St. just before 8 a.m. Wednesday after a neighbour checking on their well-being found the grisly scene inside.

Police say family members last had contact with the pair on Thursday, Aug. 29. They are now asking anyone who may have information about the case to contact them at 204-986-6508 or CrimeStoppers at 204-786-TIPS (8477).

Area residents say the 2-1/2-storey house has been troubled with late-night noise and police have been called there several times in the recent past.

"There's always stuff going on there," said George Penner. "It's just like a generally sketchy boarding house... someone will get excited and yell at the landlord... that one's a problem house."

Police confirmed today they have received numerous calls in the past to the building, but couldn’t confirm if any of them involved Sinclair or Crow.
