Infant slain in suspected Montreal murder-suicide


MONTREAL – A 10-month-old boy and his father are dead in what Montreal police believe is a murder-suicide.

The bodies of the infant and the 39-year-old man were found late Sunday in a shed at the back of a home in the northeastern part of the city.

It was the boy’s mother who contacted police after the father failed to return with the boy as planned Sunday afternoon.

She was taken to hospital to be treated for nervous shock after officers conducting a search found the bodies.

Homicide investigators are spending much of today gathering evidence at the property.

Police say the parents of the young boy were officially separated but still living under the same roof.
