Following the decision of the parole board, he was released after having served approximately one-sixth of his sentence, as permitted by law.

The information was confirmed by Mr. Fruitier’s lawyer.

His state of health would also have been a determining factor for his release.

Edgar Fruitier surrendered to the authorities on September 19 to serve his six-month prison sentence. He is 91 years old.

His victim, Jean-René Tétreault, was 15 years old at the time of the incident.
