Quebec police probe suspicious death

Quebec provincial police are investigating the death of a 57-year-old man whose body was discovered at his home Saturday afternoon.

“He was found by a member of the family,” Sgt. Ronald McInnis told the Sun late Saturday.

His house is on Principale St. in a rural area near St-Pierre-de-Wakefield, part of Val-des-Monts, about 35 minutes north of downtown Ottawa.

MRC des Collines police got the call at 1:10 p.m., and later requested Surete du Quebec officers take over the investigation.

Crime scene investigators from Montreal arrived around 10 p.m. and will be working overnight, McInnis said.

More details are expected to be released Sunday.

If the death proves to be a homicide, it would be the second in the Outaoais in the past month.

Daniel Sempels is charged with second-degree murder in the death of his pal Nicolas Quintal on April 29 near Quyon.

Quintal was beaten to death.
