North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP have released photos and video of two men who police believe are persons of interest in a double homicide that took place in Duncan on Christmas Eve.

Nellie Williams and Fran Shurie were attacked just before 11 p.m. on Dec. 24 at the corner of Trunk Road and Canada Avenue in Duncan.

Both victims were taken to a local hospital, but Shurie was soon pronounced dead, and Williams died on Dec. 28.
