OTTAWA — The double homicide investigation of a young Gatineau, Que., couple has been turned over to provincial police due to possible links with organized crime.

Gatineau police said Tuesday the investigation into the slayings of Amanda Trottier and Travis Votour is now in the hands of the Quebec provincial police, as per policies under the Quebec Police Act.

The 23-year-olds were found dead in their Eardley Terrace home on Jan. 6.

Trottier’s three-year-old daughter, Savanna, was inside the home but unharmed. It was Trottier’s father who called 911 when he arrived to pick up the little girl, who is now staying with family.

A team of Gatineau investigators will also be dedicated full-time to work with their provincial counterparts on the case.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Major Crime investigators at 819 243-2346, ext 6677, or Crime Stoppers at 1 800 222-8477.
