Terrebonne, QC, Canada: Surprenant disappeared in November 1999. Her neighbour a repeat sex offender Richard Bouillon was suspected of abducting and killing his 16-year-old neighbour Julie Surprenant, but the authorities had insufficient evidence to charge him.
In 2006, this same neighbour made a deathbed confession to her murder. He described where he had dumped her body, stuffed in a sports bag, into a river in Terrebonne, north of Montreal. "He looked me straight in the eye and said, "I was the one who killed her," "nurse's aide Joanne Dubois testified, specifying that he referred to "Julie.", but Bouillon was never charged.
Even diagnosed with terminal cancer and serving a sentence for unrelated 2003 sexual-assault convictions, lay dying in a guarded hospital room, police investigators had failed to pin the suspected murder on him.
Police divers only searched for the body in September 2011. Ms. Surprenant's body had never been found since she vanished after getting off a bus a few blocks from her home.
