Victim's remains found in trunk of her car Nursing assistant found near her clinic believed to have suffered very violent death October 28, 2005 Are they a coincidence or are they messages from a cold-blooded killer? The Surete du Quebec is investigating the death of a woman whose body was found yesterday in the trunk of a car parked behind a shopping centre in St. Hyacinthe, about 70 kilometres east of Montreal. The woman, believed to be Julie Croteau, 32, appeared to have suffered a very violent death. But the chilling element of the investigation came in the form of two messages spray-painted on the walls next to and in front of Croteau's Honda Civic. "I kill 4 fun" was one of the messages written in blood-red paint. The car was parked with its nose facing the message. "Life is 4 the strongest" was the other message, spray-painted on a wall to the right of the driver's side of the vehicle. The red paint stood out from the more common graffiti painted in black on the walls. SQ spokesperson Constable Chantal Mackels said chips from the paint on the wall will be analyzed. It's hoped the analysis will determine whether the messages in red paint were there before the Civic was parked behind a Dollarama store in the shopping centre on Casavant St. Investigators will also try to determine whether one of the video surveillance cameras in the area captured images of the person who abandoned the car in the parking lot. Claudette Carbonneau, manager of the Dollarama, said the black graffiti had been around for a long time, "but I never noticed any red graffiti until now. It must be recent." Croteau was reported missing Tuesday. She was last seen leaving her home in St. Liboire, 15 kilometres east of St. Hyacinthe, in her Honda about 6:30 a.m. that day. She was supposed to pick up a friend so they could ride together to their work in nearby Ste. Madeleine. Croteau never showed up.
