Quebec Father Kills Children

How tragic! An angry father, furious over his custody battle with his estranged wife, killed himself and his son and daughter!

Jocelyn Marcoux, of Warwick, Quebec, allegedly killed his two children, a son age 13, and a daughter age 9, before killing himself.  The disgruntled man was outraged over the results of his custody and divorce trial with his ex-wife, and murder seemed like his only solution.

Jocelyn took to Facebook to broadcast his rage after returning home from court.  In his rampage, he lambasted the court system for “favouring mothers over fathers.”

In French, he wrote, “I swore in my heart as a father that my children would never children be mistreated again, not even with the blessing of a hypocrite judge… For fathers, it’s official – if you don’t take justice into your own hands, you’ll never have justice.”

Apparently, Jocelyn thought that taking the lives of his only two children was doing them “justice.”  How awful.

But what’s worse was the condition of the bodies. The Daily Mail reported that “the charred remains of a father and his two children were found in a garage yesterday just hours before he was due at a custody hearing opposite his ex-wife.”

What a terrible tragedy!

As for the dad’s and the son’s name: they and a francophone family. Those are common names used in Québec…. do your research before commenting! … serious lack of culture on your part. Focus on the news article, not the names…
