Quebec Provincial Police investigate suspicious death of 71-year-old man

MONTREAL — Quebec Provincial Police officers are teaming up with investigators northwest of Montreal to investigate the death of a 71-year-old man they're describing as suspicious.

Police were called to a home in St-Eustache, Que., around 4 a.m. this morning and found the man badly injured inside.

The man was taken to hospital where he was pronounced dead. 

Police say a man, 45, was also found at the home and was taken for questioning. 

Sûreté du Québec spokeswoman Sgt. Hélène Saint-Pierre says physical marks on the victim’s body led investigators to treat the death as a possible homicide.

Police didn’t confirm whether the two men knew each other or release the identity of the victim.

This report by The Canadian Press was first published Sept. 12, 2021.
