Event date : December 2, 2010
24 years old

On December 2, 2010, around 1:50 p.m., citizens out for a walk in a wooded area at the end of rue Lanthier in Saint-Hippolyte saw a grey Dodge Ram pickup truck, which appeared to have been abandoned. When they approached the vehicle, they saw a young man lying on the ground. He had been the victim of a homicide by firearm. The young man was Martin Gagné, age 24, a resident of Saint Hippolyte. His home was located 2 km from where he was found.

Not far from there, the citizens saw another parked vehicle, namely, a white Cadillac Escalade. When they approached it, they saw another victim, Alain Hudon, age 52. He had also been the victim of a homicide. Alain Hudon was a businessman and a resident of Laval. The investigation revealed that Alain Hudon was the person targeted by the killer and that Martin Gagné was an innocent, collateral victim.

Any information that could help solve this crime can be communicated to the Sûreté du Québec's Centrale de l’information criminelle at 1 800 659-4264.
