Names and information which might identify the following person have been redacted. I don’t believe this person was called to testify at the Cornwall Public Inquiry? I may be mistaken so will check.
My name is [redacted] I have resided in Cornwall most of my adult life. I am 31 years old and a mother of three boys. I am presently working at [redacted]. I knew Ken Seguin for approximatly ten years.
During this time I would go to Ken’s on the weekends, Christmas, and Sunday drives.
There were lots of other people there but I forget names. I remember that the night before Ken killed himself that he came over to the apartment that [redacted] and I were living in. I knew that he was getting phone calls from someone that were upsetting him, but on this night he seemed normal and in fact I remember he pointed at the shirt he was wearing and said ” how do you like my new shirt [redacted] “.

I often wonder if Ken tried anything on my boys when they stayed overnight at Ken’s house in Summerstown as they had stayed over several times. I have often wanted to approach them on this matter but cannot seem to find the right time. This has been very hard on me, and bothers me to this day.
In the end police officer Bob Trottier had given me so much negitive feedback that I blew up at him for not doing anything I was very frustrated. I told him “you don’t know how I feel” and he responded by saying: “yes I do [redacted] “.
I make this statement of my own free will.
