René-Charles Quirion La Tribune The genetic profile of Ian Bélanger can be found both outside and inside the residence of Héliodore Dulac, whom he is accused of having killed in Milan in June 2018
Bélanger has been undergoing his jury trial for the second degree murder of the 72-year-old man since the beginning of the week at the Sherbrooke courthouse.
Forensic biology expert Jacinthe Prévost, from the Montreal Forensic Sciences and Forensic Medicine Laboratory, filed in evidence on Friday a report in which she analyzed the genetic profiles of the blood spots and projections found on the scene of crime on Chemin de la Yard, at the victim's home.
She confirmed that drops of blood projected in particular on the patio door of the residence of Héliodore Dulac and on the kitchen floor belong to the accused.
“The 13 samples inside the residence belong to Ian Bélanger”, maintains the forensic biologist.
Samples taken outside the residence allow Jacinthe Prévost to suggest that Ian Bélanger's DNA is also there.
The accused's genetic profile was also found on two cigarette butts found on the patio of the residence on Chemin de la Yard.
Heliodore Dulac's DNA is found on a blood-stained plastic sheet and on pieces of clothing found next to his body outside his residence. No trace of the victim's blood was found in his residence.
