Deaths deemed homicide

UPDATE: 10:30 a.m.

Police investigators on Vancouver Island say they are treating the deaths of two sailors reported missing last month as homicides.

Insp. Dave Hall says positively identifying Daley, who was 43, and Archibald, who was 37, is a significant step and officers can now focus on finding who killed them.

Hall says there is no evidence at this time to suggest the case is connected to the disappearance of Ben Kilmer, who vanished from the Duncan area at the same time.
