Police have charged five young people, four of them in their teens, in connection with the death of a man whose body was found Saturday, June 30 in a grassy area at École élémentaire catholique Saint-Isidore, which is located at 20 de l'École Street in St-Isidore.
According to Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) Const. Kristine Rae, a post-mortem conducted on the body of 24-year-old Joey Faubert on Monday, July 2 led (OPP) to believe foul play was involved.
A 19-year-old Ottawa man and a 20-year-old Ottawa-area man are in custody and have been charged with first-degree murder and conspiracy.
Police are withholding their names pending a court appearance in L'Orignal on Tuesday, July 3.
An 18-year-old St-Isidore man has been charged with second-degree murder and conspiracy in connection with the case. He was also scheduled to appear in court Tuesday.
An 18-year-old woman and a 16-year-old girl from North Stormont have also been charged with conspiracy and were released on a promise to appear.
The name of the 18-year-old is being withheld to protect the identity of the 16-year-old.
Police are not releasing any details about the murder and are only saying that Faubert was stabbed.
According to Rae, police responded to a 911 call on de l'École Street at 11:25 a.m. on Saturday morning.
"Officers attended the scene and found Faubert deceased on the property as previously mentioned," she stated.
Faubert's friends and family have told various media that they don't know much about the circumstance surrounding Faubert's death.
In an interview with the Ottawa Citizen, Faubert's father, Alain, said he didn't recognize the names of any of those charged and said the situation is "very stressful."
Faubert was unemployed, but had been a bricklayer and worked on the family farm. His father said he enjoyed skating, snowboarding and music.
He leaves behind two sisters, Melissa and Jessica.
The family has yet to make plans for a funeral, but have said it will likely be held in St-Isidore, where Faubert grew up.
A Facebook page, called In Memory of Joey Faubert, has been created and is a place where friends and family can go to pay tribute to Faubert by posting comments and photos.
