Nearly 30 years after the murder of Marie-Chantale Desjardins, a 10-year-old girl in 1994, investigators from the Disappearances and Unresolved Files Division of the Sûreté du Québec proceeded today at L'Établissement La Macaza, at the arrest of Réal Courtemanche, 61, for premeditated murder.

As the old police adage goes, crime doesn't pay. Thanks to the long-term work of the SQ, with the collaboration of the Judicial Sciences and Legal Medicine Laboratory, they were able to do justice to the memory of the little girl, 29 years after her homicide.

According to the provincial police force, it was thanks to innovative investigative methods in forensic biology that the suspect was able to be identified and arrested.

Remember that on July 20, 1994, Marie-Chantale Desjardins, then aged 10, was killed in the woods located behind the Place Rosemère shopping center.

The last time the girl was seen alive was July 16, four days before the grisly discovery. The little girl had left her residence by bicycle in the morning to go to a friend's house.

The alleged murderer, Réal Courtemanche, will be formally accused of premeditated murder following the outcome of the long-running criminal investigation.
