In the early evening of December 21st, 1982, 12-year-old Stéphane was kidnapped from the Plateau Mont-Royal district, in Montréal. He was found murdered two days later, on the December 23, 1982 in a field in Anjou, Quebec, 12.8 km from the place he was last seen on rue Messier.
In the late afternoon of December 21st, Stephane and 2 friends walked to Canadian Tire to purchase a present for the friends’ father. On their way back to the friends’ house, on Messier Street, the children were followed by three individuals in a white van. They became worried and hurried back home for dinner. Stéphane had dinner at their house. He left at approximately 6h30 pm to go meet his mother and step-father at a friend’s house a few blocks away. He never arrived.
His naked body was found, on December 23rd, 1982. He has been sexually assaulted and had been strangled by his own grey turtleneck that was given to him as a gift by his friends’ mother. His pocket money remained untouched.
Following much research on this case, our organisation, Meurtres et Disparitions Irresolus du Quebec (MDIQ) believes that there is ground to have this unsolved murder case reinvestigated. The evidence collected in 1982 should be submitted to DNA testing in 2020.
Stephane’s family and friends are hoping for resolution and closure in this horrible murder.
