A woman identified through her YouTube channel as Susan posted a video earlier this week claiming someone broke into the home where she was staying, beat her and stole a vehicle -- which police say was the same vehicle used in the Mac's store robberies.
Attempts by CBC to reach the woman who posted the video have been unsuccessful so far, but RCMP spokesman Insp. Gibson Glavin confirmed the basic details of her story.
He told CBC in an interview that the Honda Element that was reported stolen from Sherwood Park on Dec. 13 was the same vehicle used in the homicides of two employees of Mac's convenience stores in Edmonton five nights later.
Karanpal Bhangu, 35, and Ricky Massin Cenabre, 41, were shot to death while working at their respective convenience stores.
Investigators are still not clear on whether the suspects in the home invasion are the same people who now face charges in the two homicides.
Colton Steinhauer, 27, Laylin Delorme, 24, and a 13-year-old boy first-degree murder charges. Their next court appearances are scheduled for early January.
