Coroner inquiry launched

The BC Coroners Service has launched a public inquest into the death of Pierre Jean Dabe Lemaitre.

Lemaitre was a 22-year veteran RCMP  officer who died as a result of self-inflicted injuries back on July 29, 2013, in Abbotsford.

The Coroners Act permits the chief coroner to hold an inquest if the chief coroner has reason to believe that the public has an interest in being informed of the circumstances surrounding the death, or the death resulted from a dangerous practice or circumstance.

After going over the evidence, the chief coroner called for the review in order to explore whether there are opportunities for a jury to make recommendations that may prevent deaths in similar circumstances.

Presiding coroner Vincent Stancato, and a jury will hear evidence from witnesses under oath to determine the facts surrounding this death. The jury will have the opportunity to make recommendations aimed at preventing deaths under similar circumstances.
