Former cult leader killed in N.B. prison

"Moïse" Thériault had been a serving life sentence for killing his wife

One of Roch “Moïse” Thériault’s fellow inmates is the leading suspect in the former cult leader’s murder on Saturday in a New Brunswick prison. Thériault, 63, had been serving a life sentence at Dorchester prison for terrorizing the members of his fringe religious cult in the 1980s. (He killed his wife and cult member Solange Boislard by disembowelling her, and chopped off the right arm of another commune wife, Gabrielle Lavallee with a chainsaw.) The RCMP have yet to identify the 59-year-old suspect in Thériault’s death.
