Friday, November 20th, 1979

“This morning around 8:10 or 8:15 I left my house and got on my tractor and headed toward Lennoxville near route 143. About 400 feet from my house I saw an object just to the side of the road. I got of the tractor and traveled on foot to see what the object was. At that moment I could see that it was a wallet. I took it in my hands to see if there was an identification card inside. When I saw the first piece of id, I saw the name, Theresa Allore. I got on my tractor and returned to my house.”

Signature of person making declaration: M. V.

Declared before me at RR #2, Lennox this 20 day of Apvril 19 79

Witness: Guy Lessard


The wallet was found on Chemin MacDonald, a back road on the outskirts of Sherbrooke, approximately one mile from Lennoxville and ten miles from the site where the body was found. It contained a photo id card of Theresa Allore, a library card bearing her name, and some papers. The wallet was given to investigators Gauldreault and Lessard by the farmer, M. V.
