Man found dead in Saint-Hyacinthe: he would have inflicted the injuries himself

Man found dead in Saint-Hyacinthe: he allegedly killed himself dealt damage


Major turnaround in the investigation into the death of a 42-year-old man who was stabbed to death on Tuesday evening in Saint-Hyacinthe. If the police initially believed that he could have been the victim of a murder, it seems that the victim stabbed himself under the horrified eyes of his spouse.

The lifeless body of Patrick Dupré was found around 8:30 p.m. in a single-family residence on rue des Marronniers. The man was transported to the hospital, where he was declared dead.

The investigation carried out so far by the Sûreté du Québec tends to show that the couple had an argument and that at some point, Patrick Dupré allegedly inflicted mortal wounds on himself with a knife.

Panicked, his 44-year-old spouse would have taken refuge with a neighbor. She was at that time heavily intoxicated by alcohol and that is why the investigators waited until Wednesday morning to meet her in order to obtain her version of the facts.

Even if the thesis of the suicide is preferred, authorities continued to analyze the scene on Wednesday, hoping to confirm their suspicions with the help of various pieces of evidence.
