The RCMP says a weekend killing rampage in Nova Scotia has now claimed at least 19 lives and the toll is expected to rise.
Chief Insp. Chris Leather says investigators are continuing to piece together one of Canada’s deadliest mass killings at 16 crime scenes in central and northern Nova Scotia.
He says five of the crime scenes involve burned-out buildings, and they expect more bodies to be found inside.
Leather says some of the victims were know to the killer while others who were targeted did not know him.
Canadian RCMP Comm. Brenda Lucki says there is no news on a motive.
“A note has not been found,” she said. The suspect, a 51-year-old denturist was “not well known to police,” Lucki added.
