« My brother had disappeared two days earlier.
I went to my neighborhood police station to report his disappearance.
I was worried and yet everything seemed to be going well for him. Three weeks earlier, he told me that his wife was pregnant and that he would like me to be the godfather of his child. My brother was very fond of children (he adored my son Theo) and his voice was happy on the phone. I accepted, of course.
The police called me to tell me to go to the corner of Henri-Bourassa and Pie IX. My brother lived not far away. When I got to the meeting place, a policeman was waiting for me in an unmarked car. He led me to the edge of the shore making a big detour to avoid the many onlookers looking behind the security lines.
I was taken into a tent and introduced to a coroner. My brother's body, recovered from Rivière-des-Prairies, was lying on the ground. I had to identify it which was very difficult because the water had already taken its toll. His wallet and clothes, however, were his.
My brother was schizophrenic. He had had several difficult episodes in his life but for the past few years he had been on medication. For some reason, he had stopped his medication a few weeks earlier. His demons reappeared. He decided to drive them out for good.
It's been 25 years today.
Suicide is a definitive solution to a temporary problem.
Suicide Action: 1-866-APPELLE
