“It doesn’t happen in small towns like Neudorf,” he said.

RCMP have not released the names of the four people that died, but say they are all members of the same family.

“We are not providing their names or other identifying information at this time. Their next of kin have been notified and victim services made available to them,” RCMP said in a statement.

Global News has confirmed Joanne and Gary Bender own the property where the four adults were found.

Hanowski said Neudorf isn’t often the site of news and police vehicles and most people in town weren’t eager to talk about the scary scene this weekend.

“No matter what anybody says, or if they are mad at the police for interrogating everyone… It’s a sad situation and you don’t want anybody killed,” Hanowski said.

As for the village, people find themselves searching for answers, but will support each other in any way they can.

“We will all cope with it hopefully,” Hanowski said, looking at his friends.

“The community will support people. We have to.”
