2 homes behind police tape

While investigators have released the two main scenes in Monday’s quadruple homicide, two more homes are now behind police tape.

The home of Kathy Brittain, the ex-wife of alleged shooter John Brittain, is now behind police tape. The residence at 2429 Cornwall Drive is across the street from one of the two primary crime scenes — the homes of victims Susan and Barry Wonch and Darlene Knippelberg.

Rudi Winter lived directly next door to Kathy Brittain, but was shot pruning a tree on Lakeview Street. The scene of Winter’s shooting on Lakeview — centered on the front yard of a duplex at the corner of Heales Ave. — has been released by investigators, but another nearby home, 184 Lakeview, is now behind police tape. That taped-off home is believed to be tied to John Brittain.

However, neighbours on Cornwall Street say John Brittain spent much of his time at his ex-wife’s home, although often leaving at night.

One of Winter’s family members has said they had been in a long-running neighbours dispute with Kathy Brittain. The City of Penticton told CTV News it has dealt with several complaints between the Winters and a neighbour, but would not elaborate.

Police say a motive in the shooting remains under investigation.
