"It's being investigated as a potential crime scene that is the area where we executed a search warrant so again the community can expect to see increased police presence in that area"

He says police hope the release of the names of those charged may trigger more information.

Sgt. Betteridge adds the probe of the Cross Street house is very detailed.

Our forensic identification unit is on hand.  So generally speaking when you're talking forensics and you're talking about a murder investigation you could be looking for anything from physical damage within the house any blood that was in the house"

On Sunday, investigators arrested three people in connection to the case and have been investigating at a home 3417 Cross St., near Chippawa.
