The very kind people at Historia have said “they will tolerate” my placing the episode of Poirier Enquete about my sister on my website:

Le 3 novembre 1978, Theresa Allore, une étudiante au Collège Champlain de Lennoxville, disparaît. Le 13 avril 1979, le corps de la jeune femme de 19 ans sera retrouvé dans un bras de la rivière Coaticook à Compton, à un kilomètre de sa résidence étudiante. Longtemps, les enquêteurs de la Sûreté du Québec affirmeront qu’elle est morte d’une overdose, même si ses proches affirment qu’elle ne consommait pas de drogues dures. Récemment, les enquêteurs ont reconnu qu’elle a été victime d’une mort violente de nature indéterminée et que toutes les hypothèses sont encore étudiées.

Pour fournir des informations qui permettraient de faire avancer l’enquête, tout en restant anonyme, contactez Info-Crime Montréal au : 514-393-1133. Vous pouvez également joindre le SPVM en composant le : 514-280-2222
