On June 30, 2009, the Shafia sisters along with their step-mother Rona, were found dead in a vehicle underwater in the Kingston Mills Locks, a part of the Rideau Canal

The scene looked suspicious, not like an accident. There was immediate speculation the family was involved, a suspected honour killing.

After a 3 week investigation, and the girls parents Mohammad Shafia, and Tooba Mohammad Yahya, as well as their son, Hamed, were arrested and charged with four counts of first degree murder, and conspiracy to commit murder.
