Montreal police say they are looking for a suspect in the "possible murder" of Tricia Boisvert, the 36-year-old woman from Little Burgundy who went missing last Friday.
Initially, the case was a missing persons case. Earlier this week, police began to treat it as a kidnapping, and now, police have reason to believe that Boisvert was murdered — even though they don't know where her remains might be.
Members of the Montreal police major crimes unit spent much of Wednesday looking for clues at Boisvert's apartment near the corner of Notre-Dame and Dominion Sts.
Police say they have made an arrest or arrests, but for the moment can't say how many or who was arrested.
Meanwhile, they now say the man they had been looking for earlier in the day as an "important witness" is now considered a suspect and they are still looking for him.
30-year-old Philippe Steele-Morin is thought to have been the last person to see Boisvert.
He's thought to be in Gatineau, and is wanted by police there in connection with a domestic violence case.
Police would like anyone with any information about Boisvert or her car — a Pontiac G6 2005 GT — to contact police by calling 911 or info-crime at 393-1133.
