months after having disappeared from the campus of Champlain College in Lennoxville.

other murders in the Sherbrooke area, that of Louise
Camirand, occurred in 1977, and that of Manon Dubé, 1978. Following

kilometers from the residence. Over the years, the case was
reviewed several times following the disclosure of information
