A 30-year-old man known to the police is notably accused of insulting the body of his mother after the discovery, last Thursday, of her body in a residence on Avenue Basile-Routhier in Pointe-Calumet, in the Laurentians.

According to Inspector Jean-Philippe Labbé, attached to the investigation division of the Régie de police du Lac des Deux-Montagnes, it had been several days, even several weeks, that relatives had no news of the victim, Louisette Bergeron.

When officers arrived at the scene, they discovered the body of the woman in her 60s and found that her son, Danic Laframboise, was offering inconsistent explanations.

The victim's son was arrested and then questioned by police officers from the Sûreté du Québec.

Mr. Laframboise has since appeared and is charged with three other counts apart from that of contempt of a corpse, namely theft, non-compliance with conditions and assault causing bodily harm. mentioned Inspector Labbé.

It is not known at this time whether the victim died of natural causes. An autopsy was performed over the weekend, but police say they have not received the results.

The accused was previously known to police. Legal proceedings are underway against her in two other cases.
