Laval murder no longer a cold case
Homicide detectives in Laval are re-opening a cold case after getting some tips from the public.
The victim was a 29-year old man gunned down in the parking lot of his condo on 100th Avenue in Laval's Chomedy district.
At the time, police were puzzled about the motive for this murder because Jeremy Brick had no criminal record. A reward which started at $5000 and was hiked to $50,000 failed to produce any leads.
Fast forward to a few weeks ago, when Laval police received several anonymous calls to its tip line about the case. Since then, they've interviewed a couple of sources that pointed them in a new direction.
Sergeant Frederick Jean is hoping for more calls, in particular from people interviewed five years ago who may now be more forthcoming. "Perhaps now that it has been five years, they'll feel free to give us all the information that they know," he says.
The reward offer expired some time ago but Laval police are looking into whether the anonymous donor who offered it might still be interested.
