“I told you he was dangerous. Sooner or later, he was going to kill someone.” These are the comments made by Yvon de Montigny days after the death of police officer Maureen Brough.

Yvon de Montigny was a neighbor of Isaac Brouillard Lessard, who allegedly killed Sergeant Brew in Louisville on Monday evening. On December 28, 2021, the suspect punched her in the face in their apartment building on rue Sainte-Julie in Trois-Rivières. “He broke my jaw,” Mr. De Montigny said.

The suspect received two years of probation and 200 hours of community service. Mr. What de Montigni regrets is not keeping a closer eye on his assailant, especially after he was declared not criminally responsible for five other cases before him.

“I warned the prosecutor: he’s dangerous, we need something to follow him. We let him go. Two hundred hours of work is nothing. It’s laughing at people, we’re putting people in danger,” said the victim.

Maureen Brew’s murder unfortunately confirmed his fears. The news initially came as a “huge shock” to him. “I warned, they didn’t care, that’s all. It was their fault, the officers, they got their ass kicked. I’m lucky, I’m still alive, but she’s not alive today.

Even today, he calls for changes. “We knew he was dangerous. After five rounds, there were no more questions to ask. […] How many are there in a free society, but who are in his position? How many murders would it take to say, “Okay, this person needs permanent, lifelong follow-up”? How many murders are going to happen before we wake up? That has to change,” pleaded Yvon de Montigny.
