ROTHESAY, N.-B. — A vigil candle should be conducted Sunday evening in a small town in New Brunswick where a little girl aged 7 years was killed by his mother who then committed suicide.
The police said that Louise Cassie-Laflamme and her daughter Solange were found dead Monday in a home in Rothesay, in the south of the province.
Agents had been sent to the location shortly after 10 h.
The investigation determined that the child had been killed while the woman died of wounds she had inflicted.
A group named “Bridge of Hope-Saint John” organizes this vigil, which should be trading at 18 h.
The population was invited on Facebook to light small candles and heading to the apartment building where flowers and stuffed animals may be deposited.
“Everyone knows everyone. Any one knows what is going on in our community. It affects us a lot, said an organizer, Jessica Holly, on CTV. I had to tell my six year old son that his friend was now in paradise. Yes, this has been difficult.”
Ms. Holly believes that the vigil will help the community to get together.
“Basically, everyone is touched by this tragedy,” she said.
The initiative group has raised criticism.
“The vigil is for the two victims, the mother and the child, has confirmed an organizer in a message posted on Facebook. Yes, this will angry some people, those who do not believe that the mother was also a victim. I say, since the beginning, that we do not know what she had to go through. It is not known what prompted her to make her decision.”
The police continues its investigation.
The police Department of the region of Kennebecasis issued a news release asking anyone who spoke with the mother or the daughter before they died to communicate with him.
