“It happened close to you”: new narratives return to these sordid stories that happened in Quebec

For the second season of the documentary series, director Bernard Nadeau and his team focus on eight new stories of murders, some of which have not been hidden, that took place here in Quebec.

They were told by relatives, journalists who covered the case and retired the judge Me Johanne St-Gelais in a big way, with narrations by David Goudreault, the program “It’s almost done”, on Tuesday will sit the real initiative.

The first episode revisits the murder of Judith Elemond Plante, a 22-year-old single mother living in Victoriaville, killed by Jean-Francis Toupin Houle, a keyboardist, in her mid-twenties, struggling with addictions and painting. as a violent, abusive and narcissistic spouse.

Returning early in the morning on July 27, 2016, the young man told his girlfriend at the time that he had an argument with a man a few hours earlier, and that he was seriously injured. Persuaded by his wife, Toupin Houle handed himself over to police officers from the Trois-Rivières municipal police around am

This explains the period in which he met Mrs. Elmond Plante in a notable situation and had an intimate relationship with her. It would be in the hunt for sex involving a knife that he accidentally killed. An autopsy will reveal, however, that his victim’s death was not accidental. The girl was stabbed many times, and she had to defend herself first by having her throat cut.

Jean-Francois Toupin-Houle was sentenced in 2018 to serve a prison sentence without the possibility of parole for ten years and six months.

The second episode of the series concerns the murder of real estate agent Julie Morrison, whose charred remains were found in a burnt-out vehicle in Ozias-Leduc in Otterburn Park, Montérégie, in 2013.

Soon after their meeting, Pelletier asks the broker for her hand, and his jealousy takes over very quickly. After learning that he was lying, Mrs. Morrison eventually ends the relationship, after which Pelletier escalates his harassment and threats against her. A man who also has great financial problems owes 6,000 from his ex who refuses to give him a bet ring until he returns it.

At the time of the loan, the lady had a note indicating the loan and the terms of payment. But there is this note, and many pieces of evidence, which the investigators are waiting to put their hands on Louis Pelletier’s collar and prove his involvement in this business.
