    MONTREAL – Richard Dufresne, age 60, has been accused of manslaughter and interfering with a corpse in relation to the 24th homicide of the year occurred last October in the neighbourhood of Centre-Sud in Montréal.

    Dufresne has appeared before the Quebec Court Thursday afternoon in connection with the death of a 37 year old woman. His body had been found last October 23 in a state of decomposition, and hidden under a canvas on a vacant lot on Sherbrooke street, in the borough of Ville-Marie.

    “From the beginning, the investigators are considering the thesis of a suspicious death, and the development of the investigation, it was concluded to be a homicide. Richard Dufresne has committed the homicide and then moved the body of his victim,” said the SPVM, by issuing a press release.

    What are the investigators of the major crime Section of the Service de police de la Ville de Montréal (SPVM) who have managed to pin Dufresne, who had been met in the hours that had followed the discovery of the body, but which had not been charged so far.
