Montreal police make arrest in Cournoyer murder

Montreal police say they have have made an arrest in the murder of corrections employee Natasha Cournoyer.
A suspect will be arraigned on a murder charge later in the day, police said Friday.
Cournoyer, 37, was found dead in Montreal’s east end last month, five days after she disappeared from the parking lot at her Laval office on Oct. 1.
A security camera caught Cournoyer exiting the building, and it is believed someone attacked her as she was heading toward her car.
With the help of the Surete du Quebec, Laval police launched a large-scale investigation, using helicopters and sniffer dogs to help search for the missing woman.
On Oct. 6, blue collar workers discovered Cournoyer’s body in a wooded area in Pointe-Aux-Trembles.
