WINNIPEG — Three people died after a suspected fentanyl overdose overnight at a home in the Maples.
Emergency crews responded to 91 Petriw Bay shortly after midnight Wednesday for a medical call. Officers saw a non-responsive man inside the home and forced their way in.
Police found two deceased women and one deceased man. Officers also discovered a quantity of an unknown white powder and various drug paraphernalia within the home.
Const. Rob Carver said police suspect the powder may be the synthetic opioid fentanyl or its much-more powerful cousin carfentanil.
He said it will take a few weeks for lab results to confirm.
The investigation is continuing and no further details have been released.
