The father of a young man found dead near an elementary school southeast of Ottawa Saturday called his son “a good kid,” as some of his accused killers appeared in court.
The body of 24-year-old Joey Faubert was found near Ecole elementaire catholique Saint-Isidore in St. Isidore, an hour southeast of Ottawa. An autopsy conducted Monday showed evidence of foul play. The exact cause of death has not been released.
Alain Faubert was too distraught to speak on camera to CTV Ottawa earlier Tuesday. However, he did say his son “was a good kid,” adding: “He didn’t deserve this.”
Friends remembered Faubert as a nice young man who had fallen in with the wrong crowd.
Mike Croteau said Faubert was going through a difficult patch, and had resorted to living in sheds and on the streets.
About a dozen members of the victim’s family attended court Tuesday where three men facing charges in the case appeared.
The Ontario Provincial Police have charged two Ottawa-area men, 19-year-old Cody Henry and 20-year-old Nico Soubliere, with first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit an indictable offence.
Police have also charged 18-year-old Martin Lamoureux with second-degree murder and conspiracy to commit an indictable offence.
The three men will remain in custody until their next court appearance on July 18.
Three teenaged girls are also facing lesser charges in connection with the case.
