1. Hi Mary,

      Hmmm… It’s a little complicated, but I’m looking into it. The body’s in Trenton, Ontario. My preference would be for the police lab in Quebec to do the exam, as they would ultimately need to hand over any possible evidence discovered to the QC police (whose offices are upstairs from the lab in the Montreal, HQ). Of course, this implies that they would be interested in going through this, but it would certainly call their bluff if we said, “what if you didn’t have to pay for it?” thx

  1. Have you considered contacting the author and forensic scientist Kathy Reichs ? She works in North Carolina and Quebec as a forensic scientist. see below for a partial Bio. I’d be pleased to help you fund this so you and your family could find some closure. xo

    Dr. Reichs is one of only eighty-two forensic anthropologists ever certified by the American Board of Forensic Anthropology. She served on the Board of Directors and as Vice President of both the American Academy of Forensic Sciences and the American Board of Forensic Anthropology, and is currently a member of the National Police Services Advisory Council in Canada. She is a Professor in the Department of Anthropology at the University of North Carolina-Charlotte.

    Dr. Reichs is a native of Chicago, where she received her Ph.D. at Northwestern. She now divides her time between Charlotte, NC and Montreal, Québec.

  2. Way ahead of you Mary. I know Kathy well. Kathy studied under Andre Lauzon of the laboratoire médical at the Surete du Quebec in Montreal. Lauzon was there when Theresa’s autopsy was done (though he did not perform it). Kathy introduced me to Lauzon, and he was the one 10 years ago that re-examined all the paper medical evidence for me.
