Ottawa Citizen - - CITY - KIERAN DELAMONT

Po­lice have ar­rested a 28-year-old man in the killing of Joey Morin, a Gatineau man who was found dead in his home on April 21.

The man, who po­lice say was a close friend of Morin’s, was ar­rested in Rouyn-No­randa, more than 500 kilo­me­tres away from Gatineau.

Morin, 23, was found dead in the base­ment of a home in the Lac-Beauchamp neigh­bour­hood of Gatineau. While po­lice had not pre­vi­ously re­leased the cause of death, they said in a state­ment Tues­day af­ter­noon that Morin was killed after be­ing hit in the head with a blunt ob­ject some time be­tween April 13 and 21.

Gatineau po­lice said the sus­pect, whose name was not re­leased, had fled the Ou­taouais re­gion.
