A woman who is said to be in the heart of a love triangle was found dead from a bullet to the head yesterday morning in a parking lot in Laval, two days after filing a complaint for threats. 

The body was discovered outside a condo building on rue des Châteaux, in the Chomedey neighborhood, and a handgun was found nearby.

The body of Marly Édouard (in mortise) was discovered in this residential parking lot of a condo building in Laval.

According to our information, it is Marly Édouard, 32 years old.

Born in Port-au-Prince, she was a radio host in her home country and manager of Haitian artists, according to her biography on her company's website.

Mme Édouard immigrated to Canada in 2016 before founding Symbiose509, an agency promoting foreign artists.

The hypotheses of a voluntary act or a murder were still being considered by the police of the Sûreté du Québec (SQ), who resumed the investigation, at the time of going to press yesterday.

It was a neighbor who was returning to drive his wife to work around 6.30 a.m. who made the macabre discovery, reports the Newspaper Benoit Leblanc, president of the condominium association where the body was found.

According to our sources, the thirty-something would have lodged a complaint two days before her death against the ex-boyfriend of her new girlfriend, saying that he "wanted to do her skin".

She would have contacted 911 Friday, around 12:40, because she would have received death threats, we learn in a statement released yesterday by the Bureau of Independent Investigations (BEI).

Police officers from the Laval Police Department reportedly went to the scene and met her.

Domestic violence

An episode of domestic violence would also have occurred on January 23 and 24 which would have led the victim and his spouse to file complaints against each other, according to our information.

The BEI has also opened an investigation into the circumstances of previous police interventions in this case.

"For the sake of transparency, the investigation into the suspicious death was entrusted to the SQ's crimes against the person team," said spokesperson Stéphane Tremblay.

Each time a woman is killed or injured in this context reminds that the problem is still very present in Quebec, underlines the manager of clinical support and training at SOS violence conjugale, Claudine Thibaudeau.

The organization notices a constant increase in the number of requests for assistance received. He set up chat and text services so victims can discreetly ask for help.

“With the pandemic, women have fewer opportunities to contact support resources. That each person knows where to go for help is the sinews of war for us ”, says Mme Thibaudeau.
