    A 24-year old man has admitted causing the death of a fifty-year-old, whose body marked the 31-knife has been found in a state of putrefaction advanced in her condo in Terrebonne in 2015.

    “I’m really sincerely sorry. My life at that time, despite the fact that I was young, was in full skids. I really have no words to tell you how much I regret “, has dropped Antoine Sénécal, looking at the family of his victim, just before the judge sentences him to life in prison without the possibility of parole before 10 years.

    In the summer of 2015, the police went to the residence of Alain Nadeau, 55 years since his sister was worried and no news of him since a few days.

    Nauseating smell

    Antoine Senecal was in the condo. He told the officers that he temporarily occupied the premises since the owner was at a congress of old cars. The two patrol boats have still decided to do the tour. By opening the door of a room, a foul smell was felt. The decaying body of Alain Nadeau was in that place.

    “On the bed, the agent […] sees a towel spotted with brownish color like dried blood, can we read in a summary of the facts admitted by Sénécal. It appears that the victim […] has three knives planted in the back. “

    Not less than 31 lacerations were discovered on the body of the man, noted the coroner who examined the corpse.

    “Like a waste “

    The victim’s family was present on Tuesday at the palace of justice to hear the sentence of Antoine Senecal. The sister of Alain Nadeau has advanced to the bar in order to read a letter she had written.

    “No human being deserves to finish his days in this way and to be abandoned as a waste to break down in his room,” said Chantale Nadeau, the voice broken by sobs.

    The motive for the crime has not been disclosed.
