March 31, 2020

Police have arrested a suspect in connection with a triple homicide that killed three members of a Metis family in Prince Albert, Sask.

The Prince Albert Police Service announced the arrest late Tuesday but did not name the man or reveal his relationship to the family. Police said he was known to the victims.

Found in a home Sunday were the bodies of Denis Carrier, 56, Sandra Henry, 56, and Bentlee, age 7. A five-year-old girl, Kendrah, remains in hospital in stable condition, police said in a release.

Police said the children’s surnames were being withheld at the request of surviving family members. Autopsies were scheduled to be completed later this week to confirm cause of death.

APTN News spoke briefly with the children’s mother Tuesday. She said they were of Metis heritage before declining an interview.
