Halton police are looking to speak with the occupant of a vehicle seen in the area of a suspicious fire last week that left two Georgetown residents dead.

Police were called to a home on Hidden Lake Trail just after 5:30 a.m. on the morning of February 17. The house was fully engulfed in flames when police arrived before being extinguished by Halton Hills Fire.

A subsequent investigation revealed two people dead inside the home. They have since been identified as the homeowners, 56-year-old Krystyna (Emilia) Rerak, and her 59-year-old husband Andrzej (Andrew) Rerak.

A post-mortem examination concluded that the deaths of the man and woman were “suspicious” resulting in homicide detectives taking over the investigation.

Police say they want to speak with the driver of a newer model, white, mid-sized SUV that was seen in the areas of Orchid Avenue, Robinson Road and Danby Road and may have driven past the scene between the hours of 4:30 a.m. and 6 a.m. on the morning of the fire.

Police are also appealing for any dash cam or home surveillance footage in the area of Hidden Lake Trail between the hours of 6 a.m. February 16 to 6 a.m. February 17 to contact them.
