Quebec provincial police are trying to determine the connection between three suspicious deaths in the province's Beauce region.

Sergeant Melanie Dumaresq, a provincial police spokeswoman, says officers were called to a home Saturday evening in St-Croix where two bodies were found outside the residence.

She said the work of investigators at that location led them to another home 70 kilometres away in St-Isidore, where another dead person and two unconscious people were found.

The relationship between the five people has not been confirmed.
