Escaped convict back in custody

By Robin Della Corte

Convicted murderer Jean-Pierre Duclos was found and arrested last Tuesday night in Magog, Quebec, after a search that went on for more than a month.

The 56-year-old man, who was serving a sentence of life imprisonment for the 1991 murder of 33-year-old Danielle André in Laval, had escaped the supervision of a guard during a visit to Verdun Hospital, where he was undergoing a medical checkup, on May 27.

Duclos was found in a vehicle by police officers from the RCMP on Sherbrooke Street in downtown Magog. They said that he was preparing to exit the country and had in his possession a large amount of cash.

Duclos killed Andre and left her body outside a Laval warehouse. She had been beaten and shot because she had refused to have sex with Duclos.

Duclos, who was sent to in prison in 1992 for the first-degree murder, had been been serving his sentence in Sainte Anne des Plaines since May of last year.

He is currently in custody and being questioned by police.
