    Not quite sure if this case belongs here, but cannot find a thread for this particular Quebec cold case which I came across on a Sharron Prior website. Unfortunately most of the info seems to be in French so details need to be translated in order to reach a wider audience imo.
    It seems new info has been found and the family would like to have this case reopened.
    Imo, one attracts more bees with honey..

    Tammy Leaky, a 12-year-old who went missing in 1981, just a few blocks away from where Sharron disappeared six years earlier. Tammy’s body was found later the same day, raped, beaten and strangled.http://news.nationalpost.com/2012/04/13/yvonne-prior/

    Family gathers to remember boy missing for 27 years
    REPORT BY CINDY SHERWIN
    Published Tuesday, November 1, 2011 11:04PM EDT

    MONTREAL - It was 27 years ago, but his heartbroken family has never recovered.

    Sebastien Metivier was only eight years old when he vanished from a schoolyard on the corner of Desjardins and Adam Sts. in Montreal's east end in 1984.

    The police searched for Sebastien 27 years ago in the St. Lawrence River. They didn't find Sebastian, but only the body of the friend who was with him at the time, Wiltin Loubin. His throat had been slit.

    The body of a young Wilton was recovered a month later in the St. Lawrence.The child of Haitian descent had been strangled and murdered.Little Sebastian,
    has never Been Found. In 1993, the prime suspect in these cases, a 44 year old man with a heavy criminal record, committed suicide before undergoing a polygraph examination, taking with him perhaps the key to the investigation. Unsolved

    Think this is the case you are referring to CanManEh.

    "Police are not ruling out the hypothesis missing nine-year-old Trois Rivieres girl, Cedrika Provencher, may have been abducted by a woman and man team, said Surete du Quebec spokesperson Constable Richard Gagne.

    Shortly after Cedrika went missing on July 31 Madeleine Bournival, one of the last people to see the girl before she disappeared, told police that a woman had asked Cedrika to help in the search for a black and white dog.

    While police initially focused their attention on finding this woman, they soon started looking for the man who had approached three girls with a similar request in the days preceding Cedrika's disappearance".

    Has anyone been seen in Quebec taking pictures of children, LE gave a warning today in Toronto.

    http://www.cp24.com/news/police-aler...kids-1.1479716

    " Police said the man packed up his camera and fled when bystanders noticed he was snapping photos of kids near Queen Street East and Jones Avenue on Tuesday at about 5:10 p.m.

    The man is white and five-foot-11 to six-foot-one with a medium build. He was wearing beige pants and a green shirt, and he was carrying a brown shoulder bag".

    there's a photo of Sebastien at this link:

    The Missing Children's Network held a march to mark the unsolved kidnapping of a young boy that led to the network's creation 25 years ago.

    From the link, wondering who else LE have in mind?

    "Police think they might know who was behind the kidnappings and killings, but they'll never know for sure.

    The main suspect in this case committed suicide the night before he was to take a lie detector test.

    Jean-Baptiste Duchesneau was in jail for sexually assaulting a child. Years earlier, he had killed a six-year-old with a hammer"

    Is anyone familiar with Duchesneau. I can't find anything about him or the murder of the child with a hammer.

    This article about the Viens murder mentions the cab driver who was the primary suspect at one time. Another suspect was his roommate. The article quotes a source who at the time said the roommate had tried to kill four children and succeeded in killing another. None of these suspects are named, so it's hard to figure out who's who.

    Police rivalry blamed for Viens case chaos - Feb 16, 1985

    Two bids to abduct children are foiled - June 17, 1985



    And maybe this boy's name, Michel Ethier, should be added to the list as a victim. It sounds like his death was classified an accident too quickly. He played hookey from school in December, 1984. In March, 1985 his badly decomposed body was also found in the St. Lawrence River with some signs of bruising around his neck.

    No trace of foul play found on boy's body, coroner says Aug 15,1985


    Then there was this unnamed perp.

    Brutal sexual assault leads to arrest of a man Oct 25, 1986

    Thanks to all who posted articles here, found them very interesting. While browsing through them wondered why Sharron Prior is not listed with the other 7 cases when so much regarding her case is similar.

    Link to Sharron's thread.
    CANADA Canada - Sharron Prior, 16, murdered in Point St. Charles QC, 1975 - Websleuths Crime Sleuthing Community



    From Montreal Gazette article regarding 5 year-old Denis Roux-Bergevin, quoted below, 10 June 1985 - from post #5, snipped for brevity.

    '... police made their way up a little-used path to a row of beehives ...'

    Sharron Prior was found at beekeeping site 10 years before DRB. She had head trauma like DRB, a broken jaw like WL and went missing from Point St Charles as did TL.

    It's possible LE did not disclose that SP is part of this cold case investigation. I hope she is as there is a broad spectrum of victims in the 7 named - male, female, ranging in age from 4 to 12. SP would be the 1st of 8 cases if included, falling 6 years before TL.

    A lot of the coverage was in French since Quebec is predominantly French speaking.

    There’s a serial killer of children on the loose in Quebec, living today in Trois-Rivières, having eluded police since the 1980s, claims a Montreal documentary filmmaker who has completed an examination of eight unsolved homicides.

    Stéphan Parent makes the explosive, if not sensationalist, claim in Novembre 84′, a two-hour documentary that contains dramatic reconstructions of the abductions of children as well as the dumping of their bodies in fields — all set to a loud, jarring soundscore. The film is to screen at some Guzzo theatres as of Nov. 5.

    Interesting article, but horrifying that so many children have been victimized.
    Wondering if the perp/s have moved around the country ?
