Neighbour recalls numerous fights, police presence at Shuswap home where two bodies were found

November 08, 2019 - 6:00 PM

Earlier this week, RCMP were called to a private residence in a rural Shuswap community after two individuals were discovered dead inside a home.

Chase RCMP received a report of two deceased individuals on Tuesday afternoon, Nov. 5, inside a home located along Fraser Road in Anglemont, approximately 100 kilometres east of Kamloops.

Police have said little about the incident only stating the deaths were suspicious in nature. They haven’t released identities of the victims, if they were known to each other or the circumstances of the incident but released a statement saying, at this stage, there is no reason to believe there is any risk to the general public.

Tyson Hampel who owns a property across the street from the house where the bodies were found says he knew of a couple that lived there. Hampel says he constantly heard loud fights frequently coming from the home and often debated calling the police.

“The police are so far (away) in Chase and things always calmed down and we would see them the next day,” he says. “Some of it sounded like it was physical almost and it was on a daily basis.”

He said it was always a fight between a man and a woman.

On some occasions, Hampel says the fights would get so bad he would record them. Over the years, he remembers seeing police show up to the residence at least four times.

“I just had that feeling in the back my mind that there was something that was going to happen there,” he says. “I remember I had mentioned it to my wife over the phone once I said ‘I think they are literally going to kill themselves.’”

Another woman who lives in the area who did not wish for her name to be published says she was told the incident was a murder-suicide but RCMP media spokesperson Cpl. Jesse O'Donaghey says it's too early to classify the deaths yet.

Investigators say they are considering all possible scenarios as the investigations continues, according to O'Donaghey.
