QUEBEC – More than six years after the disappearance of a Quebec woman, a man she’d met over the Internet is now being charged with her murder.
Alain Perreault has long been considered a prime suspect in the disappearance of Lyne Massicotte. He has now appeared in court to face a first-degree murder charge. Massicotte’s body has never been found.
The 43-year-old woman disappeared on July 17, 2003, after travelling to Quebec City from her home south of Montreal.
She’d met Perreault over the Internet.
Police say new evidence in the case allows the Crown to proceed with the charge against Perreault, who is 47.
