SAINT-APOLLINAIRE | The Sûreté du Québec (SQ) announced Tuesday evening that it plans to change its strategy to try to find Martin Carpentier, the father suspected of abducting the lives of his two daughters and to be on the loose in a wooded area of the surroundings of Saint-Apollinaire.
“The analysis of the information collected leads us to change our strategy,” briefly mentioned the SQ on his Twitter account at around 22 h, on Tuesday. No detail has been specified on the form of the new research strategy.
“In order not to be detrimental to the operations that are underway in the sector, we will only contact you if we have new information,” added the provincial police.
The stalking of Martin Carpentier continued for a sixth day, Wednesday, without success. The SQ had announced Tuesday morning that it would focus its research in an area covering 50 square km.
The police has still not indicated whether she believes that Martin Carpentier is still alive or deceased. Investigators continue to evaluate both options, the use of beat patrols, police dogs, drones and thermal imaging cameras looking for the slightest clue to find the fugitive.
Martin Carpentier and his two daughters have disappeared last Wednesday, following a mysterious accident on highway 20. An AMBER alert was triggered the next morning, and then cancelled after the discovery of the bodies of Romy, 6, and Norah, age 11, Saturday.
The autopsy of the bodies of the two young victims is over, but the police does not want to disclose the cause of their death before having put the hand to the neck of their father.
