Justin Bourque’s parents sought help for troubled son but police ‘couldn’t do anything’

MONCTON, N.B. — Victor and Denise Bourque had tried without success to get help for their son Justin, whom they described as a gentle person who had gone off the rails since he stopped going to church with his large, devout family.

We even tried to get the police involved but they said they couldn’t do anything about it and that their hands were tied,” Victor Bourque said in a telephone interview Sunday, four days after their 24-year-old son allegedly shot and killed three Mounties, injured two others and gripped a locked-down city in fear as police scoured the woods for a heavily armed man. “It is sad. People are falling through the cracks and this is another one.”
