According to several sources familiar with the case, it could likely be a case of femicide in a marital context. Remember that the vehicle in which his body was found was abandoned in a cornfield along rang Saint-Pierre, in Saint-Bernard.

According to our information, a man in his twenties is in the crosshairs of the authorities, but no arrests have been made at this time.
