Massive search for missing Quebec lady comes to end

Quebec City (Quebec) 13 May 2015 – The search for a missing woman, Chantal Demers 46, which started on May 7, came to a sad ending yesterday May 12, when her body was found in a wooded area northwest of Quebec City.

Chantal Demers had been reported missing by her daughter on May 6 and the last contact between the two was on May the 3 when Chantal told her daughter that she was in trouble with her boyfriend Victor Poirier and asked if her daughter could come and get her.

A search was organized in three specific areas, Lac St. Charles, Limoilou and Sainte-Hélène-de-Breakeyville where Mme Demers’ abandoned car was found. Mme Demers lived in St. Patrice-de-Beaurivage, a town on the south shore of Quebec City.

The officials were obviously not looking in the right district because the body was found far from those original search areas. What brought the police to search in St. Raymond-de-Portneuf, where the body was found, was because it was there that the police intercepted Victor Poirier on May 8.

M. Poirier has become the prime suspect in what is now a homicide investigation and is being held under assault charges until a bail hearing on Thursday of this week.

Why Mme Demers’ car was found in Breakeyville, on the south shore is a mystery, and why she called her daughter on May 3 saying she was in trouble with M. Poirier is another unknown clue.

Police will be putting two and two together in the next few days after questioning M. Poirier, who may be charged with the murder.
