Research by the Sûreté du Québec (SQ) continues in the investigation into the death of #x27;a 3-year-old toddler who died Monday in Bois-des-Filion, in the Laurentians.
A mobile SQ command post was near the scene of the tragedy on Saturday, in the hope of finding new clues to shed light the circumstances surrounding the child's death. Specialized police officers were deployed on Saturday for ground searches.
The investigation was entrusted to the Sûreté du Québec since charges were filed against a 19-year-old young man who was at the scene of the tragedy on November 6, in a residence on 34th Avenue. The Terrebonne–Sainte-Anne-des-Plaines–Bois-des-Filion Intermunicipal Police Department was first called to the scene around 5:30 p.m. and is collaborating with the SQ investigation. Despite resuscitation maneuvers, the baby was pronounced dead on site.
Three people were arrested, then one of them appeared in the last few days at the Laval courthouse.

A quote from Audrey-Anne Bilodeau, spokesperson for the SQ
It would be a member of the victim's family, which the police have not confirmed for the moment. There are two other individuals of interest who were arrested and subsequently released. The investigation is obviously continuing, she stressed.
The murder weapon has not been found , which partly explains the police searches on the banks.
More precisely, the mobile command post is on 33rd Avenue in Bois-des -Filion and we have police officers specializing in land searches, from the emergency intervention module, to search the banks and surrounding areas for clues in this case, said the spokesperson of the SQ. The SQ divers' exit was not planned for Saturday, according to Sergeant Bilodeau.
The Sûreté du Québec investigation continues.
