The discovery of indices provides a second breath to the research teams always on the footsteps of the father of Norah and Romy, found dead in Saint-Apollinaire. “The key in this folder, this is Martin Carpentier”, recalls the sergente Ann Mathieu.
The body of the young sisters Norah and Romy were found last Saturday. Since the AMBER alert is lifted, the officers from the SQ are real hunting to the man. They work day and night to find the father of the girls.
Since Sunday, the police concentrate their activities in the area of the grisly discovery, in the wooded area between the rows of Wood-Joly and Saint-Lazare.
“Items of interest were found at this location. We can’t reveal the nature of these elements in this moment”, says the Sûreté du Québec.

These items found will be useful to the ongoing criminal investigation.
“It comes to bring hope of a result. It doesn’t mean that it’s going to bring the result, but it gives us a boost of energy at the level of the direction of research.

Concerning the post-mortem of the girls, the SQ will have to check things out with Martin Carpentier before disclosing information. The latter, considered the main suspect in the case, has the pieces missing to establish the chronological order of events.
“It is sure that it must not be forgotten that Martin Carpentier, in all these events, is still a suspect. It is important to know that this is a person who is in need of care, a human victim of a collision, our top priority Safety is to save lives”, recalls the sergente Mathieu.
