"Doting dad" strangles two sons to death (Montreal, Canada)

The Canadian dad who murdered his two young sons has now been identified as JACQUES TANGUAY. Seems Daddy strangled the 1- and 7-year-old boys before offing himself.

Note that as long as you are a daddy who only killed his own children, the neighbors will still praise you for being a "doting father." Why do reporters waste our time quoting the utterly Clueless Neighbors? Just what is it you have to do to get classified as a bad father these days, since even Killer Dads are labeled as "nice"? Would we say that a guy who shot up an office or a factory was "nice"? Disgusting....

Hat tip to Annie.

Montreal mom finds 2 boys, dad dead

Montreal police are investigating a suspected murder-suicide after the bodies of a 72-year-old man and his two young sons were found in an apartment in the city's southwest early Saturday.

Investigators suspect the father strangled the boys, aged seven and one year old, before killing himself.

The bodies of the father, whom neighbours identified as Jacques Tanguay, and sons Anthony and Gabriel were found by the boys' 33-year-old mother Sylvie Breton when she returned to their Ville-Émard apartment about 1 a.m.

She called 911 and was taken to hospital in a state of shock. She has since been released.

Louise Dion, who said she knew the family well, described the man as a doting father who was usually in charge of bathing the children and feeding the toddler.

A friend of the couple, who did not want to be identified, told CBC News that the father often looked after the children alone and was tired, but always seemed very proud of his boys.

Normand Gratton, who works as a local crossing guard, said he saw the older boy, Anthony, every day as he went to and from school and that the boy would often pick dandelions to give to his mother as a bouquet.

Lyne Limoges said her daughter spent part of Friday playing with the seven-year-old, describing him as a happy boy who always wanted to help.

An autopsy Monday or Tuesday is expected to determine the exact causes of death.
