Provincial police and the coroner's office in southwestern Ontario are investigating the deaths of an elderly woman and man who were found dead Wednesday morning.
Authorities in Huron County say they received a call requesting a well-being check for a home in the Exeter area. Officers responded to the home around 9 a.m. and found the elderly couple both deceased.
The male victim is 90-year-old Grant Triebner and the female victim is his 83-year-old wife Ada Triebner, according to authorities. Grant Triebner was found inside an open barn on the property and died from the extreme cold.
Ada Triebner was looking for her husband outside when she fell victim to the extreme cold and died outside. The severe cold that killed the elderly couple is part of a cold snap that is enveloping much of Ontario.
