On April 13, 1974, in Sainte-Thérèse, Québec, a resident of the Foyer Drapeau residence was doing his daily walk when he saw 2 human legs sticking out of a snow bank near the parking lot behind the residence. The police were immediately alerted and they discovered the body of a woman. Clothing and a knife were found near it.
The woman, 18-year-old Carole Dupont, had been stabbed several times in the chest and had received 2 stab wounds in the back. She had been cut diagonally across the thighs and her left breast had also been cut.
Carole was a nude dancer who had been missing since December 22, 1973. Investigators believe her body had been in this location since shortly after her disappearance.
The evening of December 22nd, Carole was drinking with a friend, Francine Decoste, at the Zodiac bar. They then went to the Hôtel Royal and the Hôtel Blainville, where Carole sometimes danced. She was last seen leaving the Blainville Hotel with 3 men.
During the investigation, the victim’s mother explained that her daughter was often under the influence of drugs, never had any money and was almost always in bars surrounded by disreputable men.
Despite the questioning of many people, Carole’s murder remains unsolved.
