Calgary police would like to hear from people in the Moose Jaw area who may have information on a murder that happened last month.

The remains of three people were found in a burned-out vehicle at a Calgary construction site on July 10.

The two women, 39-year-old Tiffany Ear and 36-year-old Glynnis Fox, were from an Indigenous community at Morley, which is west of Calgary.

The body of a 25-year-old man was also found in the burned vehicle. The body of a 26-year-old man was later found west of the city.

Calgary police say the evidence that is being sought in the case was discarded between July 10 and July 14. The areas in question are outside of Moose Jaw near Canadian Forces Base Moose Jaw or the Moose Jaw Municipal Air Field.

Investigators say items being looked for are clothing, specifically a shirt, pants, shoes and documents. These items will have been burned or partially burned.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Moose Jaw police.
