Sûreté du Québec arrest two suspects linked to 2017 Laval murder

Quebec’s provincial police force, the Sûreté du Québec, said in a statement issued on May 27 that they had arrested two suspects linked to a murder committed in Laval in March 2017.

According to the SQ, Marc-Laflamme Berthelot, 36, who is currently being detained in Port-Cartier, and Manuel Savoie, 45, of Mascouche were arraigned through videoconference link-up on charges of involuntary homicide.

In March three years ago, police and medical emergency personnel were summoned to a spot along Autoroute 13 in Laval after the lifeless body of a man was found lying on the side of the autoroute.

A subsequent investigation revealed that the 34-year-old victim had been kidnapped from a parking lot outside a restaurant in Laval. Paramedics had pronounced him dead on the scene.
