RCMP in Bloodvein have made arrests in connection to two homicides that took place in the remote community last weekend.
Police could not immediately confirm details of the arrests, but sources have told the Free Press a teen suspect faces charges in connection to both killings.
Further details may be made available later today, RCMP said.
Timothy Goosehead, 31, was found stabbed outside his home and died of his injuries on Sunday, Bloodvein chief Roland Hamilton told the Winnipeg Free Press on Monday.
Goosehead's body was found outside a home in the community on the east side of Lake Winnipeg, Hamilton said.
"He got stabbed but they're still investigating," Hamilton said in a telephone interview.
Goosehead was just released from provincial custody after serving 300 days in jail for assaulting a woman — a former girlfriend — at a home in the community last March.
Goosehead died just one day after the death of Cliff Malnyk, 52. His body was found inside a burned-out home around 2:30 a.m. Saturday.
His daughter Melanie Bushie, 22, was attacked when she went to her dad's home after midnight. As she pounded on the door, two men ran out with one swinging what she described as a sword.
The home was on fire at the time Bushie was attacked. She was able to get away in her truck, as the men smashed the windows, and go for help.
