Our sources have confirmed from the provincial police that the children included two 2 and 5 years old girls and a 4 year-old boy, who were found dead on the top floor of a red-brick duplex in Drummondville, i.e. almost 100 kilometers northeast of Montreal. The victimized children are widely believed to be all siblings though it is not confirmed, whereas the police shared later on Sunday that a 33-year-old woman, believed to be the children’s mother, is a key witness in the investigation.
The police have not commented on any details of the case, though they agree that the deaths are indeed suspicious. Sgt. Christine Coulombe confirmed in a telephone interview that she received a call about the incident around 4 p.m. on Sunday evening. She also added that ambulances were already outside the home when the police arrived. Our sources report that the police have cordoned off a large are around the house, establishing a security perimeter as the investigation got underway.
