Winnipeg police say that arson was the
cause of a deadly bathhouse fire, reports the CBC.
Two men died as a result of the Oct 11 fire
at Aquarius Bath. The first victim was identified as 23-year-old Steven Yablonski, a
popular drag queen also known as Kerri O’Kee.
A crowd of over 200 gathered outside the
bathhouse on Oct 12 to remember Yablonski, who was described as an active volunteer, a good friend and “great singer.”
Days later, the second victim was
identified as Robert Clark, 62.
The CBC reports that homicide investigators
are now leading the investigation.
