Sources told Radio-Canada that Daphnée Jolivet would have encouraged a young woman to denounce her attacker, who is said to be a member of a street gang. According to our information, everything indicates that this denunciation could have a link with the murder.
On Friday, the SPVQ indicated that it was too early, at this stage of the investigation, to say whether the 19-year-old woman had been targeted precisely or randomly. As of this writing, as of Saturday afternoon, authorities have yet to confirm whether one or more criminal gangs could be linked to the killing.
Sol Zanetti mentioned to Radio-Canada that for the moment, he is awaiting the conclusions of the police investigation but that mentioning street gangs in Quebec constitutes a warning signal.< /p>
It's a context that has probably been there for a few years and I think there is work to be done to prevent crime and this kind of drama that shakes the community, he added.
Martial Van Neste, vice-president of the Maizerets Neighborhood Council, wants to be reassuring.
It’s shocking when we hear [that there are] murders in our environment, he agrees. But that hasn't changed my perception of the neighborhood.
I still believe that Maizerets is a safe neighborhood, but it is legitimate that interventions are made to reassure the population.
