The Surete du Quebec called me on friday. Here are a few updates that they gave me:
- Stewart (Stuart) Peacock: The Surete du Quebec communicated with the Manchester, UK police and determined that the Stuart Peacock currently in jail in the UK for a history of pedophilia IS NOT the same Stewart Peacock who was Director of Residence at Champlain College, King’s Hall, Compton. In many ways this is actually a great relief. I can’t imagine the sh*t-storm that would have descended had it been the same guy. Interestingly, in determining this, the SQ also re-interviewed Jeanne Eddisford, the former Assistant Director of Residence at King’s Hall from that era.
- Although over the last 16 years the Surete du Quebec has given me several assurances that I was granted access to EVERYTHING in my sister’s cold-case file, it now turns out that this is not true. There exists a final report from detective Roch Gaudreault, but because of “issues of confidentiality” I am not allowed to see it. The SQ assured me that I could always make an access-to-information request to try and obtain the file.
- Exhuming the body: I again asked the SQ if they had any interest in exhuming the body to see if there were any physical DNA evidence on Theresa from the perpetrator. The SQ is still taking this under consideration.
