OTTAWA — The case of a young couple found dead in their Gatineau, Que., home is a double homicide, police confirmed Wednesday following autopsies.

Amanda Trottier and Travis Votour, both 23, were found dead Monday afternoon.

Trottier’s three-year-old daughter, Savanna, was inside the home but unharmed. It was Trottier’s father who called 911 when he arrived to pick up the little girl.

An autopsy was also needed to positively identify Votour.

Police didn’t release how the pair died.

So far, dozens of people have been interviewed as part of the investigation.

Savanna is now staying with Trottier’s family, who have been pleading for justice for their loved ones.

Earlier this week, Trottier’s grandfather Ghislain Kerney said the couple had drug problems that could have landed them in their dealers’ bad books.
