Investigators say they have confirmed a Manitoba link to the slayings of eight motorcycle-gang members in Ontario.

The bodies of eight men, all with connections to the Bandidos biker gang, were found dumped in a farmer's field about 30 kilometres southwest of London, Ont., on April 8.

Five people have been charged with first-degree murder in the case, which Ontario police have described as an "internal cleansing" of the biker gang.

Sgt. Rich Guyader with Winnipeg's organized crime unit, told CBC News that local police are working with Ontario Provincial Police on the case.

"We are assisting in identifying Bandidos members in Manitoba to be interviewed in relation to their activities in the Bandidos organization," Guyader said.

Police are also looking for a red sport utility vehicle with damage on one side, which may be connected to the case. Winnipeg police said the vehicle was known to them.

Investigators from Ontario are also travelling through other areas of western Canada and the United States in their search for evidence in the case.
