Martin Carpentier nowhere to be found

SAINT-APOLLINAIRE – After 10 days, the Sûreté du Québec decides to “modulate its means of investigation” on the ground in Saint-Apollinaire, in the hunt to find Martin Carpentier.
ATfter having verified 1,000 reports to 9-1-1 and carried out 700 searches of cottages or trailers in the woods of Saint-Apollinaire, Saint-Agapit and Laurier-Station, the SQ chose to reorient its workforce in the pursuit of research.

We will therefore no longer see a large deployment in this same sector, place of the discovery of the bodies of Norah and Romy Carpentier.

“The checks in the area based on the information we had have all been carried out,” one wrote in a statement.

It should be noted that patrollers will continue to drive through the ranks of the small municipality in the coming days.

“We are on the lookout for new information allowing us to redeploy our workforce to other sectors. At the same time, other investigative steps are underway. We will not elaborate on the nature of these so as not to affect their effectiveness, ”also indicates the SQ.

For 10 days, police cars were part of the scenery of Saint-Apollinaire, this small municipality of the MRC de Lotbinière. Officers walked around, scouring the area on foot, with ATVs, on horseback or by car. Martin Carpentier has been missing since July 8.

The Sûreté du Québec said it was redoubling its efforts on Thursday to find the main suspect in the death of Norah and Romy, the two girls found lifeless in a wooded area of ​​Saint-Apollinaire.

The search seemed to be concentrated in Bois Joly, Saint-Lazare and Sainte-Marie on Friday.

Saturday, the municipality of Saint-Apollinaire had almost regained the calm it knew, before the AMBER alert was issued and everyone disembarked in their end of the region.

The cars of the Sûreté du Québec have slowly given way to investigators. They analyze the objects found, clues that help advance the investigation.

If the rain could be difficult for the officers on Friday, this tenth day gave way to the heat. Under the sun, the patrol teams have finished searching all the chalets and outbuildings in Saint-Apollinaire and Saint-Agapit. They also thank the citizens for their collaboration.

The search operation is now transferred to the investigators’ side. The large numbers of personnel over the past few days have left the research sites, and their services are no longer in demand. Among other things, the dogs found the necessary clues.

We should see yellow or red ribbons on all the doors of the chalets and outbuildings of Saint-Apollinaire and Saint-Agapit, they signify that the place has been checked and secured.

Carpentier’s investigation gained a second wind when a stolen trailer was discovered. All owners of a chalet or outbuilding in the Saint-Apollinaire or Saint-Agapit sector have been called on to check their facilities for missing items or signs of passage.

All the land has been checked, assures the SQ. After Saturday, we saw yellow or red ribbons on all the doors of cabins, trailers or garages; they mean the place has been checked and secured.

The SQ believed then that Martin Carpentier wanted to get his hands on objects ensuring his survival, which would mean that the man is alive. A few days earlier, the hypothesis that Carpentier was dead became more and more possible …

Since Thursday, spokespersons for the SQ have greatly reduced communications with the public. This is a strategy to move the investigation forward. However, it is assured that the agents have some pieces of the puzzle in this nebulous affair. Martin Carpentier remains the key to the file, he has the information that will establish the chronology of events since July 8, the day of the swerve on Highway 20.

The population living in the research area remains invited to report any abnormal activity.

The bodies of Norah and Romy Carpentier, aged 11 and 6, were discovered last Saturday, in Saint-Apollinaire, two days after the broadcast of an AMBER alert reporting their disappearance. The SQ believes that they could have been involved in the famous car accident with their father. The little girls lived in Lévis, on the South Shore of Quebec.

Autopsies were performed on the bodies of the children, but the results will not be released until Martin Carpentier is found, so as not to interfere with the investigation or a possible questioning.

The funeral of Norah and Romy Carpentier will be celebrated Monday in Lévis.
