The Deceased: Daniel Langlois and Dominique Marchand

In a shocking development, Minister of National Security and Legal Affairs Rayburn Blackmoore revealed that four individuals, including three non-nationals and one Dominican, are in custody in connection with the suspected homicide of Daniel Langlois and Dominique Marchand. The couple, French Canadians and owners of the prestigious Coulibri Ridge Eco Resort, were reported missing before police discovered their charred remains in a vehicle at Gallion on December 1, 2023.

Given the severity of the fire, the bodies were unrecognizable, forcing investigators to rely on circumstantial evidence. Blackmoore commended the prompt action of the Chief of Police and his team, leading to the swift apprehension of the suspects. He also initiated communication with the Canadian High Commissioner, emphasizing Dominica’s commitment to resolving this crime and requesting investigative support from Canadian authorities.

Blackmoore assured that the government will provide all necessary resources to the police for a thorough investigation, acknowledging the crime’s shock and impact on the island, including the victims’ employees, families, and community.

Parliamentary Representative Denise Charles-Pemberton from the Soufriere constituency expressed profound grief, noting the couple’s significant contribution to the community’s development, especially post-Hurricane Maria. She lamented the loss of their vision for the community and stressed that the incident does not reflect the area’s safety and spirit.

Daniel Langlois, a notable Quebec-based entrepreneur and founder of Softimage, a leading 3D animation software company, and Dominique Marchand had been living in the Caribbean for many years. They opened the award-winning Coulibri Ridge eco-resort, known for its sustainability, about a year before their tragic deaths.

The incident has garnered international attention, with Canadian officials closely monitoring the situation.
