Quebec Man Suspected in Double-Murder-Suicide Following Spouse Harassment Report

83

A man from Quebec, recently apprehended for spouse harassment, is suspected to have committed an unspeakable act involving his two young sons. It is understood that he took his own life on a fateful Saturday, following the harrowing incident. His harassment, which included stealthily tracking his wife, emerged as a prelude to the grim events, occurring just days prior to the tragic incident; this information comes from an informed individual who wishes to remain anonymous.

Ian Lamontagne, the man in question, is linked to a property in Notre-Dame-des-Prairies, located approximately 80 kilometers north of Montreal. Police officers descended upon this locale on the dreadful Saturday afternoon, painting an uneasy picture in the otherwise serene town. Inside the residence on Patrick Street, the lifeless bodies of a man and two young children were discovered around 2 p.m. The nature of the deaths remains undisclosed, however, authorities have hinted at a possible double-murder-suicide scenario.

A neighbor, Nathalie Taylor, recounted the chilling incident the following day, speaking of “a horrifying scream, one that lingers in your memory; signaling something terribly wrong”. According to Taylor, the family maintained a low-profile. They were seldom seen socializing, presumably leading busy lives.

Numerous pictures of Lamontagne’s three-year-old twins were shared on his Facebook page. Lamontagne’s LinkedIn profile shed light on his professional life; he was the founder and president of Kevlar Cybersecurity, possessing a robust background in IT and cybersecurity. The major crimes unit of Surete Quebec is currently investigating the case.

This incident adds to a growing list of similar tragedies that have plagued Quebec over the last year. A month ago, a 59-year-old man from Montreal supposedly murdered his wife and 12-year-old daughter before being found dead in a city canal. Prior to this, a man from the South Shore faced charges for murdering his wife and two children aged five and two. Shortly after, a man from Laval was arraigned on charges of murdering his two children – an 11-year-old son and a 13-year-old daughter.
