RCMP concludes investigation into sudden deaths

The New Brunswick RCMP's Major Crime Unit has concluded its investigation into the deaths of a 61-year-old woman and a 62-year-old man from Oak Bay, N.B.

On November 23, 2019, shortly after 10 a.m., members of the St. Stephen RCMP were called to a home on Route 170 for a report of a sudden death. Upon arrival, police discovered the bodies of the woman and the man inside the home.

Autopsies on the two people have been completed. The investigation has determined that the woman's death was the result of a homicide, and that the man was responsible for her death. He then died as a result of a self-inflicted wound. A firearm was recovered at the scene.

Due to the circumstances surrounding the deaths, no criminal charges will be laid.
