Five Days until search for evidence in Magog related to Theresa Allore Murder Investigation


Theresa Allore was last seen on the evening of Friday, November 3, 1978 in Lennoxville, Quebec. Her body was found the following spring, April 13th, 1979 in Compton, Quebec. On Saturday, November 4th, 1978 two hunters – Stephen Mandigo and Samuel Burnham – spotted clothing in the woods off Giguare road near Austin, Quebec. The location was ¼ a mile down Giguare road, about 500 yards into the interior of the forest off Giguare. The hunters described seeing “darkish pants and a t-shirt”. Theresa Allore was last seen wearing dark blue corduroys and a t-shirt. On Wednesday, November 15th, 1978 the hunters and the chief of the Lennoxville police went back to the sight but were unable to re-locate the clothing.

The sighting of the clothing is significant for two reasons:

1. Theresa Allore’s clothing was never recovered.

2. The Giguare road sight is within a few hundred yards of where the body of Louise Camirand was discovered on Friday, March 25th 1977 sexually assaulted and murdered.

The Search

On Saturday, June 17th 2006 volunteers will gather at the Giguare road location to search the surrounding area in attempt to recover the remains of any possible evidence related to this case.


The search party is being coordinated by Sue Sutherland, a criminology student at the University of Montreal. Sue is working in coordination with Quebec Secours and the Magog police force. The Surete du Quebec, respnsible for the investigation of death of Theresa Allore, are not participating in the evidence recovery.
