Montreal police find bodies of woman, 2 boys in Pointe-aux-Trembles home

A 42-year-old woman and her two young sons, aged two and four, were found dead early Wednesday morning in Montreal’s Pointe-aux-Trembles neighbourhood.

Montreal police spokesperson Manuel Couture said police officers arrived at the home around 8 a.m. on Place des Pointeliers near St-Jean-Baptiste Boulevard to inform the family the father had died.

The father died by suicide on Tuesday evening in Joliette, according to Couture.

Police officers were reportedly worried when there was no answer at the family home so they entered and found the bodies.

“They thought it was not normal that nobody was home and nobody was answering,” said Couture.

The three deaths were confirmed at the scene, and they are being treated as suspicious, according to police.

Couture said it is too early to say if the deaths are considered to be homicide. Investigators and forensic analysis technicians are at the scene.

“They still have a lot of work to do,” said Couture.

Police could not provide more information about the circumstances around their deaths.

A crime scene has been established on the residential street.
