Quebec provincial police say four people have been arrested in connection with a 2020 homicide in Gatineau that investigators believe is linked to organized crime.
Ryan Bracken, 31, was found unconscious on Eddy Street on December 11, 2020 and later died at the hospital. He was Gatineau’s fourth homicide victim that year. The Sûreté du Québec (SQ) took charge of the file a week later due to the possible link with organized crime in the province.
In a press release, the SQ said that the organized crime murder investigation team arrested four people on Tuesday afternoon.
Wally-Isaya Laguerre-Lamarre, 24, Isahia Paulotte, 21, Donte Malik Strachan, 24, and Tyann Strachan, 27, will appear before a judge in Gatineau on Wednesday.
The charges have not yet been confirmed.
Police from Gatineau, Ottawa, the SQ and the MRC des Collines de l’Outaouais participated in the investigation.
