Body found in ditch likely linked to auto fire deaths: Calgary police

Body found in ditch likely linked to auto fire deaths: Calgary police”

The vehicle the three were found in was registered to 26-year-old Hanock Afowerk and police say Afowerk's body was recovered from a ditch near Highway 8 and Highway 22 on Wednesday.

The fourth, the man who owned the auto, was found dead in the western rural outskirts of Calgary Wednesday morning.

An autopsy confirmed Thursday that the body found on Highway 22 is that of 26-year-old Hanock Afowerk, the registered owner of the burned auto.

"I want to stress the brutality and the ruthlessness of the murders", Wozney told reporters.

The bodies of sisters Glynnis Fox, 36, and Tiffany Ear, 39, as well as 25-year-old Cody Pfeiffer were found in Afowerk's auto after firefighters were called to the scene of a burning vehicle in Sage Hill Bluff early Monday morning.

"If somebody spoke to any one of the victims that's been identified, if anyone saw them, if anyone had a beer with them, if anyone had a coffee with them, if anyone had a meal with them - if you had any contact with these victims in any way - we would like to talk to you".

Glynnis Fox, 36, was one of three people found dead in a auto set on fire at a Calgary construction site.

Wozney said both women were mothers and the police force "would like to acknowledge the family members suffering in this tragic loss".

"The two female victims, Ms. Fox and Ms. Ear, we believe came to know the other victims very recently", he said during a press conference on Thursday.

They noted that he had a criminal record but Wozney said "that matters not to us".

Wozney said there were "significant traumatic injuries" to all of the bodies, adding that the injuries surprised "some very seasoned investigators".

He said investigators are appealing to anyone who saw the victims the day before the vehicle fire to come forward with information.

Investigators say they think a number of people are involved and continue to search for more crime scenes.

Wozney said Afowerk's body was dumped with "a certain brutality".

Hanock Afowerk was the registered owner of the burned-out auto found Monday.

"This was a brutal set of circumstances with regards to these homicides".

A body found in a ditch west of the city on Wednesday is connected to the triple homicide in Sage Hill earlier this week and police say it was a targeted attack.
