"The Honda Element that was stolen from the residence here in Sherwood Park during the home invasion was then used ... for the homicides in Edmonton," Const. Chantelle Kelly of the RCMP in Sherwood Park, an Edmonton bedroom community, said Wednesday.

Two Mac's employees working alone were shot and killed at two separate stores during the early hours of Dec. 18.

Three suspects -- two men and a 13-year-old boy -- are in custody and face first-degree murder charges.

Kelly said police are investigating any connection between the home invasion, vehicle theft and homicides.

"We're still trying to determine whether the individuals involved in the homicide are the same individuals that are responsible for the home invasion."

The home invasion victim, who was a guest and was alone at the time, has posted a YouTube video detailing her version of events.

In the video she says two men pushed their way into the home after first offering to shovel the walk. The woman, who appears in the video with a black eye, says she was beaten and tied up while the men searched the house for drugs, money and guns.

She says they asked for the resident of the house by name.
