(Trois-Rivieres) “If the police has returned, we can assume that it is because it was worth it. I am confident that the individual can get caught, that justice is done even if I do not talks of revenge feeling. I am convinced that the matter will be settled. It will take the time it takes. ”
Martin Provencher reacts positively to the resumption of research of the Surete du Quebec on the back of her daughter.
The discovery of human remains Cedrika Provencher in December had brought the police to launch an extensive search operation. It was back on the scene Tuesday strong new information designated as credible by the police force.
A score of police specialists in this type of research were the limits of Saint-Maurice and Trois-Rivieres Tuesday morning. They were accompanied by a dozen other members of the SQ (investigators, forensic identification services, forensic laboratory and legal services) to conduct research.
The scale of the police operation in December resulted receiving a lot of information. SQ checked each track and this is what led the police force to undertake further research on Tuesday, a situation that “satisfied” Martin Provencher.
“Following the discovery of the bones of Cedrika, he entered, information. Police still demand. It is a puzzle that is missing some pieces and it quietly between. It is important to give information to the police, as small as it can be. This is probably the missing information, “says Provencher, who was addressing the media for the first time since the discovery of the remains of his daughter.
This new police operation is however independent of that conducted in December, says Captain Guy Lapointe.
“We did not come here to complete the job. There is new information that was received that lead us to come here, “said the spokesman of the SQ, specifying that the research work done in December had been done to the satisfaction of the police force.
Research that ended late Tuesday afternoon were concentrated on land located north of the area excavated in December, near exit 210 of Highway 40.
Captain Lapointe refused to give details of the area covered by the research and is equally discreet about the nature of the information and the date of their receipt. But the SQ would like to receive the most information possible.
“You always hope that someone will call us, will bring a piece of information that we do not have we can overlap with other elements that have and continue to move forward in the investigation. The parallel I do is with a headache. Sometimes a small piece may seem not mean we can afford to move forward, “added Captain Lapointe, who stressed that the investigation progresses.
The caution displayed by the SQ reassures Martin Provencher.
“The police advised me recently to tell me that it would conduct further research. I have not talked to the police today (Tuesday). All information of the first record, I do not know what was found, if it’s important or not. It is unclear what was found in December! And it is correct that it remains secret. We would not harm the investigation. ”
Cédrika Provencher was reported missing July 31, 2007 in Trois-Rivières, when she was nine. The discovery of human remains in December sparked a major search operation involving up to 200 police officers.
These remains have not yet been returned to the family.
