QUEBEC CITY — A city morgue employee was fired in 2012 after he committed “inappropriate acts,” the head coroner for Quebec City said Wednesday afternoon.
Dr. Louise Nolet wouldn’t go into detail about the acts, but she said she was forced to make a public announcement after rumours about the fired employee circulated in the media.
Earlier Wednesday, an anonymous source told Sun News Network’s sister French-language station, LCN, that a Quebec City employee had a personal collection of photos he took of corpses of women and young girls who were brought to the morgue.
The caller said morgue employees caught their colleague looking at his photo collection in 2011.
“He looked at the photos when his colleagues were eating lunch,” the source said. “He had been taking photos of women and young girls since 1995.”
