A suspect has been named in the Pointe-St-Charles stabbing that occurred early Monday morning. Jean Edens Lindor is being sought by police in connection with Montreal’s 17th homicide of 2017.
Lindor can be seen in surveillance footage from the apartment building on Mullins St. where the murder occurred. Police identified him with help from the public after images from the footage were disseminated on Monday.
Born on Jan. 15, 1993, Lindor is 24 years old, has black eyes and short black hair. On the video, he was wearing a black jacket, a black shirt with a white Nike logo and black pants.
An arrest warrant has been issued by the Quebec Court and a charge of second degree murder has been authorized by the Directeur des poursuites criminelles et pénales.
The victim of the stabbing has not been named by police, but friends and family identified her online as Gerry Sisi Thibert, a transgender sex worker. Thibert was stabbed around 2 a.m. on Monday and was found in the hallway by a neighbour.
On Tuesday afternoon, the Montreal Gazette reached Thibert’s sister Caroline Thibert-Deschênes, who declined to comment on the case “so as not to impede with the investigation.”
Anyone with any information is asked to call 911 or Info-Crime Montreal at 514-393-1133.
