The contract killer and the actor’s lover

It sounds like a plot from a movie, but the woman who was convicted of killing an actor’s lover at their house in Longueuil in 1981 may soon be out of prison, although not quite – as the headline suggests – completely freed.

It’s a very odd story, a young woman agreeing to carry out a hit because her druggy boyfriend couldn’t do it, later claiming she showed up at the house to offer her escort services to a couple of gay men. Odder still is that, to this day, nobody knows who originally contracted for the killing or why.
