CALGARY - Two of the bodies found in a burned-out car in Calgary have been identified and a third victim has been tentatively identified.
Autopsies were scheduled for the bodies on Tuesday. They were found inside a vehicle, after the Calgary Fire Department received a 9-1-1 call about a car on fire early Monday morning. Crews found the vehicle engulfed by flames beside a building at a construction site in northwest Calgary.
Calgary police confirm one of the victims has been identified at 36-year old Glynnis Fox. A male victim has been identified at 25-year-old Cody Pheiffer, whose facebook site notes he is from Barons but lives in Caroline.
Police have tentatively identified a third victim, a woman believed to be in her 30s, and need the public's help to determine where a photo she posted on social media early Monday was taken.
Investigators are also looking for information about the whereabouts of the registered owner of the black 2011 Chevrolet Cruze destroyed in the fire. They say they are concerned for 26-year-old Hanock Afowerk's safety.
Acting Insp. Paul Wozney has said that the owner of the Cruze had a criminal history in Calgary, but he declined to elaborate. The Calgary Police major crimes unit continues to investigate the deaths are suspicious, noting that fire is often used to conceal crime scenes.
