Eight Bodies Found At Canada Farm

Eight bodies found at Canada farm

The bodies of eight men have been found in several vehicles in woodland on a farm in Canada, police say. The grim discovery was made by a farmer on his land in Elgin County, Ontario.

Police have launched a murder hunt and say it is possible more bodies will be found. They say all the men were white but have given few other details.

"We are not in a position to release any information about the persons, the motive or the cause of death," said Ontario Police Sergeant Dave Rektor.

The farm is near the village of Shedden, about 20km (12 miles) from the city of St Thomas, south-west of Toronto.

Police say the bodies were found in three cars and a tow truck.

Sgt Rektor refused to confirm media speculation that all eight men had gunshot wounds.

Officers say the murder probe is at a very early stage, but say the farmer who reported the discovery of the bodies is not considered a suspect.

No, but this seems very weird. Thanks for posting it, I am interested in what others think might be the story.

Clearly the sectarian violence points toward a looming civil war in Canada.

No. There was a thread posted earlier, but it didn't specify that they were all men.

The eight men can't have died of gunshot wounds. Canada has strict gun control, and a gun registry. Must be bad police work.

I live in the Detroit area and WWJ radio has been in contact with a local radio reporter on the scene.

They believe it is part of a war between two rival gangs - the Banditos and Hell's Angels. All eight are men and they have been shot. They have pretty much ruled out the mob - not its style.

Because they know something they aren't telling.

Apparently there is good reason to believe its gang-related, according to the local reporter. She didn't specify why (clothing, tattoos, etc.). One of the gangs is from London, Ontario - about 130 miles northeast of Detroit and the other is from Toronto, where the tow truck is from.

Oh, I can believe it. I just found it funny that the reporter intimated that the mob didn't do that sort of thing.

All men?

Maybe a man-hating feminazi? Or possibly a female member of nation of islam. After all the noi website says the white race should be eliminated.

So they do. It was interesting to see the photos. Thanks for calling my attention to the Beetle. I hope that isn't a bad thing, not all cops have to chase people trying to outrun them.

So, of course, this story cannot be true, UNLESS they were killed in evil gun-loving America and taken across the border!!

Source link: Canada police: 8 slain men knew each other

"A body is seen in the back of a car in the area where eight men were found dead inside four vehicles near Shedden, Canada, on Saturday April 8, 2006. Police were not disclosing many details about the deaths in rural Ontario, about 20 miles southwest of the city of London, except to say that four vehicles were involved, including a tow truck, and that the dead were all men." (AP PHOTO/CP, Steve Martin)

And -- they "knew each other" - how did the police figure that already?
