Murder of Cédrika Provencher: Eyewitnesses rule out Jonathan Bettez –

Important details have come to light in the case of the murder of Cédrika Provencher and Jonathan Bettez, who is still considered the “main suspect” by the police.

As a $10 million lawsuit is filed against the Sûreté du Québec and the police's work, Jonathan Bettez's lawyer claimed his client was excluded from eyewitnesses.

The composite portraits in the file on the disappearance of Cédrika Provencher and the physical description of the witnesses at the scene do not resemble Jonathan Bettez. This is what his lawyer Me Jessy Héroux said.

In a legal filing, a copy of which was obtained by TVA Nouvelles, we can read: “More importantly, eyewitnesses dismissed Jonathan Bettez during an identification parade, saying he did not match the person they had glimpsed.”

For four years, the Bettez family has criticized the police for botched investigations. According to her, the police did everything they could to convince the public that Jonathan Bettez was a murderer and a pedophile.

A $10 million lawsuit has been filed against the Sûreté du Québec, Quebec's attorney general and the police officers who arrested him in connection with child pornography. Charges for which Jonathan Bettez was acquitted in 2018.

The court then found that the police searches and searches had been conducted improperly.

Although four years have passed since the lawsuit was filed, there is currently no date set for the civil trial. The deadlines are extended and the two parties have a court date on January 22nd to discuss certain points.

Quebec's attorney general wants, among other things, certain parts to take place behind closed doors and away from the media, as the investigation into the murder of Cédrika Provencher is still ongoing.
