Police still on the scene

Lambton OPP have now removed two bodies from a Petrolia home this afternoon.

About five police vehicles, including the Forensic Investigation Team, were called to Portland and Center Streets before 2 pm Monday. Officers put police tape up around the home and officers could be seen moving into the home with cameras.

Just before 4 pm, officers donned hazmat suits and entered the home with two stretchers. One body was removed shortly after. The second was taken out of the house around 4:25 pm.

Eye witnesses living in the neighbourhood tell The Independent he has not seen people going in or out of the home for weeks.

We’ll have more details as they become available.
