André Leroux was murdered on July 5, 1994, at his residence at around 8 a.m. as he was coming back from his cottage with his partner Christiane Maurice. It is believed that it was Christiane who managed to call the police just before facing the same fate as him.
Mr. Leroux was mayor of the city and like Christiane, he was well known for his involvement in several community activities organized in St-Clet. André was 54 years old at the time of his murder. He was a wealthy man and had several properties and possessions. However, nothing appeared to have been disturbed in the house and there was no evidence of trespassing.
A man coming to do some work in the couple’s house arrived on the scene at the time of the murders and was taken hostage by a hooded man before being abandoned in Montreal.
