Gérald Thomassin accused of a bloody murder: the main suspect acquitted by the Assize Court

Gérald Thomassin was accused of murdering Catherine Burgod before justice turned to Mamadou Diallo. But the former paramedic was acquitted on Monday April 4, 2022.

This mystery has remained unanswered for almost 15 years. On December 19, 2008, at 9:05 a.m., the body of Catherine Burgod was discovered in the back of the Montreal-la-Cluse post office. The mother-of-two, 41 and 5 months pregnant, was bathed in a pool of blood – she had been stabbed 28 times in total. It was first the actor Gérald Thomassin, who lived opposite the crime scene, who was suspected of murder. But it was Mamadou Diallo, a high school student at the time, who was remanded in custody four years ago.

I am not a murderer

On Monday April 4, 2022, at 10:10 p.m., the jurors acquitted Mamadou Diallo of the “ aggravated murder “of which he was accused, ” for the benefit of the doubt“, holding against him only simple theft. He had actually stolen the sum of €2,490 from the murder scene. ” I panicked, I didn’t think, on my way out I took a wad of cash, I ran out but I’m not a murderer“, he assured the bar. He was sentenced to two years in prison…a sentence he has already covered during his pre-trial detention.

He knew Catherine Burgod, the victim, because he went to her counter to withdraw her allowances. Although his DNA was not found at the crime scene, he mysteriously disappeared in 2019.

I’m sure he’s dead

Will the truth ever come to light? Hard to say. According to Gérald Thomassin’s brother, he would simply be dead. “She had committed this murder, he would have confessed everything. If he stood up to it, it’s not him, he says to the magazine Gala. I know him my brother, he is not a murderer! Now I hope someone will tell the truth about his death. Because I’m sure he’s dead. If he were alive, Gerald would have given a sign of life. First, it is very family. Even if he is hurt, he cannot go long without calling. He would have given signs of life since 2019.
