Sylvie Samson was murdered on 3rd Avenue in Pointe-aux-Tremble on November 28, 1995. She had just gotten off the bus around 6:00 p.m. on her way home from work. A man who was removing snow from his car, a neon white, would have waited precisely for Sylvie to walk by before changing his snow broom for an iron bar to hit her on the head. He then quickly fled in his vehicle.
Sylvie was 37 at the time of her murder and worked as a secretary in the department of religious studies at UQAM There has been speculation that this murder is connected to the labor dispute affecting the department at the time. According to an employee, Sylvie was afraid to work there and received threats. To this day, it is not known what motivated this crime and no suspect has been identified.
