As you can tell I’m really diggin’ this Lexis Nexis thing. I’ve always wanted to use it for research but couldn’t afford a subscription. But recently I put two-and-two together and realized I get it for free as a student at NC State.

Now take a look at this little gem I mined from way back in 1985:

Third brother sentenced for four murders

MONTREAL (CP) – A third brother has been convicted of the first-degree murders of four people at point-blank range in revenge for vandalism at a cottage in the Eastern Townships.

Mario Pouliot, 20, was sentenced to four non-concurrent life terms for the murders of the victims, who were tossed into a ditch in the rural community of Compton Station in June, 1984, after being shot with a hunting rifle.

Pouliot must serve a minimum of 25 years in jail before he is eligible for parole, Mr. Justice Benjamin Greenberg ruled yesterday.

Pouliot was the leader of the crime which also involved his brothers – Serge, Marc and Ronald – their father Jean-Luc and family friend Andre Maheu, the jury was told.

All but Serge Pouliot have been sentenced to varying prison terms for the murders.

I had heard rumors of the Pouliot family for years but could never find anything to substantiate their existence.

Get this…

When I met current Director General of Champlain College, Gerry Cutting back on March 15th, 2002 to discuss my sister’s death, Gerry speculated that Theresa might have been messed up “in the Pouliot affair”.

Gerry’s rationale?

Theresa was involved “in the drug world” / the Pouliots were drug dealers.

She lived in Compton / the Pouliots lived at Compton Station.

Ergo, she was done in by the Pouliots… these things have a way of taking care of themselves.
