PLATTSBURGH — Canadian authorities are continuing the search for a triple-homicide suspect who crossed the border into the North Country last week.
Justin Bresaw, 35, is wanted in connection with the deaths of three people who perished in a raging house fire Sept. 17 in Amos, Quebec, about 310 miles northwest of Montreal.
Surêté du Quebec spokesman Constable Pierre Tremblay said Tuesday afternoon that Bresaw’s whereabouts were still unknown and the hunt for him continued in both in the United States and Canada.
On Sept. 19, State Police Troop B Bureau of Criminal Investigation Capt. Robert LaFountain said the man had been seen in Mooers and Plattsburgh two days earlier but that video surveillance showed Bresaw had left the area.
Tuesday, he referred questions about the case to the Surêté du Quebec, saying there were no further updates from State Police.
So far, authorities on both sides of the border have been unable to confirm details about where Bresaw may have been, where he is headed or how he is getting around.
Following the fire, police said, Bresaw was seen driving a stolen 2001 blue Honda Civic, which was later found abandoned in Havelock, Quebec, just 6 miles from the Town of Mooers.
A white male, Bresaw is 5 foot, 9 inches tall, about 150 pounds and bald, with brown eyes. He was last seen wearing a white button-down, long-sleeved shirt and dark-colored pants.
He is considered armed and dangerous and should not be approached, Tremblay said. Anyone with information is urged to contact 911 immediately.
