New Brunswick Journalist Reportedly Murdered

New Brunswick law enforcement authorities have reason to believe a journalist, who was found dead outside his residence, was the victim of a homicide.

The Major Crimes Unit of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) of New Brunswick is investigating after the death of Réjean Hébert, in Saint-Simon, a small town in the north of the province. The 60-year-old man was discovered lifeless outside his residence in the middle of the night on Thursday. Officers had received a wellness request to ensure the individual was well.

Authorities were able to arrest a 29-year-old man in the case. The RCMP is stingy with additional comments as they continue their investigation to shed light on this matter.

A grieving media community

The death of journalist Réjean Hébert shakes everywhere in Acadie when he was enormously involved. The man was, for the past few years, news director at CKRO, a community radio station on the Acadian Peninsula. He was able to accompany listeners every day to inform them about current events, in addition to supporting several young journalists at the start of their careers. He also did some reports for the TVA station in Caraquet.

In addition to being passionate about horticulture, Réjean Hébert is also involved in the Association des radios communautaire acadiennes du Nouveau-Brunswick.

“It is a heavy loss for the journalistic field and for our entire community,” said the provincial deputy for Caraquet, Isabelle Thériault.
