On the morning of April 28, 2000, Guylaine Potvin, 19, was found lifeless in her apartment on rue Panet in Jonquière. Guylaine was sexually assaulted, beaten, and murdered. She was studying at the Cégep of Jonquière and lived with two girl friends, also students, who were away that night.
In July 2020, another student was strangled, sexually assaulted, and left for dead. She thankfully survived the assault. DNA traces found at the scene of the two crimes were confirmed to belong to the same aggressor. However, the police have never been able to link this evidence to an individual subsequently implicated in other crimes or to someone already known or in police records in Canada.
