James Boucher, the target of a manhunt in connection with the murder of Tricia Boisvert, turned himself in to Gatineau police on Thursday.

Shortly after 4 p.m., the 31-year-old walked in alone to the Hull police station, according to Montreal police Const. Raphael Bergeron.

Investigators had believed Boucher was likely in the Outaouais area, where his alleged accomplice, accused murderer Philippe Steele-Morin, was nabbed on Monday.

The hunt had begun six weeks after Boisvert was last seen at her Montreal apartment on Jan. 17. Her body was found in Quyon on Jan. 23.

Boucher was wanted on a Canada-wide warrant for accessory to murder after the fact, and indignity to a body, in connection with the death of Boisvert.

Steele-Morin is the man charged with second-degree murder of Boisvert, his longtime friend.
