Quebec Provincial Police officers are teaming up with investigators northwest of Montreal to investigate the death of a 71-year-old man they’re describing as suspicious.
Police were called to a home in St-Eustache, Que., around 4 a.m. this morning and found the man badly injured inside.
The man was taken to hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Police say a man, 45, was also found at the home and was taken for questioning.
Surete du Quebec spokeswoman Sgt. Helene Saint-Pierre says physical marks on the victim’s body led investigators to treat the death as a possible homicide.
Police didn’t confirm whether the two men knew each other or release the identity of the victim.
