The deaths of Trottier and Votour, discovered Monday afternoon, have been ruled suspicious by police.

"They took my baby, they took my baby," Victoria Lebrasseur told reporters Tuesday.

"It's like this is a bad dream, it's a bad nightmare, and I'm just hoping I wake up and it's not true."

Lebrasseur said she and her husband went to check on Amanda at her home at 158 de la Terrasse Eardley St., near des Allumettières Boulevard and Eardley Road, on Monday at about noon, after Trottier failed to text them that morning as she usually did.

'I found them myself, right in front of my eyes'

"I found them myself, right in front of my eyes," she said, referring to the bodies of her daughter and her boyfriend. "And we thought the baby was gone too, upstairs. I thought I had to lose my two girls."

Trottier's body was lying close to the front door, according to Trottier's cousin, Jennifer Labelle. Votour was face down on the floor close to a patio door in the living room, she said.

Lebrasseur said the scene was a violent one.

The toddler, meanwhile, was playing upstairs in her mother's bedroom.

"My uncle screamed her name, I don't know how many times. He screamed loud. She never answered, so they thought she was dead too, until he got upstairs and saw her in the bed playing with her toys," Labelle said.

Police seek information

Gatineau police were called to the home at 12:50 p.m. Monday. Autopsies were scheduled to take place today in Montreal.

Corey Houle, the father of Trottier's child, said he was at work when his family called to tell him what happened.

Gatineau police's major crimes unit and forensic unit will continue their investigation at the home Tuesday, Const. Pierre ​Lanthier said.

"It's a priority for the Gatineau police force right now," he said.

Police are asking anyone with information to come forward.
